A ‘snobby’ resident has been branded the real Hyacinth Bucket after he sent an anonymous note to new neighbors demanding that they put their bins away at the back of their house.
The homeowner, who received the note just four weeks after moving to the Tranby Park estate in Hessle, East Yorkshire, caused both hilarity and a stir after she shared it with a local Facebook page.
The letter, posted to second-class mail, asked the new owners to keep housing prices higher for the neighborhood by putting their trash cans out of sight.
It was shared by the new owner, who said: ‘Not even four weeks in my house and my neighbor has this delivered by second class mail.’

The letter goes on to instruct them on the need to keep Tranby Park “clean and tidy”, citing Gipsyville – a deprived suburb of Hull – which they spell “gypsy ville” as an area where trash cans are stored at the front of houses, apparently creating a ‘domino effect’ for others who follow suit.
The letter, which remarkably does not welcome the resident, reads: ‘We hope you will see this request as others have done in the past, simply because it is in everyone’s best interest.
‘We are sure you chose to live in this area because you liked what you saw in the house and the surrounding area. The Tranby Park area has been kept clean and tidy for over 20 years by the many residents and the council who maintain the park for our children.
“We’re not sure if you noticed, but there are no trash cans outside the houses. This is for several reasons, to prevent rats and foxes from eating and to keep the area tidy.
The Tranby Park estate (pictured) is a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses and according to property website Zoopla the average house price is £274,000
“Trash cans outside homes make any area look cheap and you have to look at gypsy ville to see the knock-on effect when a resident decides to go against the common sense of the majority.”
It continues: ‘The residents and the municipality cannot and should not tell you where to put your bins, but pride in the appearance of your home and respect for neighbors should always win.
“We hope you understand, as it is in everyone’s best interest and also good for preserving our home values. Thank you.’
The letter drew many hilarious comments, with people unanimously against the ‘snooty’ letter, drawing parallels to BBC 1’s ‘Keeping up Appearances’ famously snobbish Hyacinth Bucket who insisted on pronouncing her last name ‘Bouquet’ and mocking her repeatedly. neighbors.

One of them commented, “Crikey. Hyacinth Bucket on the hunt,” while a second commented, “Mrs. Hyacinth Bucket has moved to Hessle—who would have thought!”
Another said: ‘Whoever wrote that knows exactly how legitimate and snobbish it is, otherwise they would have put their name on it.
“I’d rather live with the people of Gipsyville than with that snobbish junk. I would deliberately omit it now. What arrogance!’
Another made a novel in which he suggested, ‘I’d replace your totes with a permanent 12ft skip. Then I would write back that I didn’t like their car and have they considered changing it in the interest of the residents? Absolute bouncers.’
Someone wrote, “I’d be looking for an old firecracker right now to dump on blocks in the driveway for a few weeks now.”
Another who objected to the letter said, “It’s not necessary, is it? Grab a trampoline and put it in front of the door, then maybe a caravan, that’s enough.’
