Churchdown mum-of-11 Heather Frost calls for an end to all the attention

MUM-OF-11 Heather Frost wants an end to the international attention around her and her family’s new council “mansion”.

She told The Citizen she had “plenty to say” in response to her own father’s stinging criticisms but would not air her thoughts publicly and added: “I just want it all to stop now, it’s gone far enough.”

On Friday, Royston Frost, 72, from Tewkesbury, said his daughter should have “got off her backside” and found employment. It came after jobless Heather, 37, who has appeared on Daybreak and Jeremy Kyle, claimed she is not living a life of luxury and runs out of money every week.

But yesterday, it was revealed by The Sun that she hired a fairground carousel ride worth hundreds of pounds for one of her children in 2011.

Public outcry began earlier this month when The Citizen broke the news that Heather and her kids are moving from their Churchdown home – two houses knocked together – to a purpose-built six-bed eco home in Tewkesbury, funded by the taxpayer.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Heather said: “A mass murderer wouldn’t get as much attention as I’m getting. One bloke said on Facebook he wanted to put all my kids in a house and gas them. It’s just sickening.”

She also said she struggles to make ends meet on benefits and is regularly given a helping hand financially by her mum.

“I run out of money every week,” she said. “Luckily I’ve got a good mum who bails me out. I usually spend £250 a week on food. I go to Primark for the kids’ clothes but if people give me secondhand ones, I will gladly take them. I’ll take anything off anybody.”

    I see in the Daily Express. Ms Frost and her brood has been in trouble before. Why does that not surprise me. Causing the life of an elderly neighbour to have a terrible life. With a barrage of foul language not just from the kids but ms Frost herself, what do we expect, the kids learn it from their foul mouthed mother her kids think it must be the done thing if mother does it. What on earth was Severn Vale thinking of allowing this awful behavior to go unpunished. Several years ago I was at West Wilts Housing Society and I can assure you all, this sort of neighbour problems were NOT allowed to continue, Housing officers were sent to the problem family and if the warning was not taken then the family were moved on. Yes and on this occasion the neighbours did have a street party. Now the estate in question all lead a trouble free life, no more blaring music, dogs barking to early hours,no green houses smashed, no cars scraped because the owner spoke against the problem family, no flowers trampled and veg stolen from gardens to name but a few. I am extremely sorry for anyone who will have to live near this dysfunctional family. With their vast array of live stock. They should be put in the middle on nowhere , where they have no near neighbours to worry or make their life hell. She ought to be thoroughly disgusted and ashamed with not only her past behaviour to her neighbours but also her recent neighbours and lets hope if she does move in to her mansion she will control her kids so no more trouble will be caused to those who have the misfortune to live near Ms Frost and her brood.

    you are still contradicting yourself, saying that she both works hard (raising 11 children is hard) and that she is a lazy sponger do you really not see the clear contradiction there?" I never actually ever said that I thought she worked hard raising 11 children. I said I didnt care, it was her self inficted problem, I don't see why I and the rest of this countries taxpayers should pay for 11 choices. What do you not get about that ?? You seem to have the same attitude as her, have what you want, even if you cannot afford it, and let someone else pick up the bill. What a selfish ignorant attitude to have !!

    'Most school's provide after school clubs where by the children can stay until collected by their parents. There is no conceivable reason why Ms Frost can not do the same. She has a partner on the dole so again with him at home he is very capable of looking after his children.' except not all the children are school-age and isn't one of them even disabled, or did I get that wrong? you need a bloody good job to pay for full-time childcare. Regarding the partner, isn't it more sensible that _he_ looks for work, I am sure he is doing so but not finding it?

    'This is nothing to do with how hard it is to raise 11 children, it is about what a sponger she is to indulge herself and have 11 children she has no means to support, just let the workers of this country pay for her, and then expect a nice big home to put them all in. I don't care how hard it is for her to look after so many children, its a bit like a hangover after having too much to drink .... self inflicted !!"' you are still contradicting yourself, saying that she both works hard (raising 11 children is hard) and that she is a lazy sponger do you really not see the clear contradiction there?

    12347192, It was her choice to have 11 children, it should be her reponsibilty to pay for their care, not the taxpayer. She hasn't worked since she was 17 according to her own admission on daybreak, when she said she hadn't worked for 19 years. So why have so many children when whe didn't have an income to support them. Would you go into, say Tescos do a big shop get it all put through the till, then say sorry no money to pay for this, then point the person next in the queue, and say stick it on their bill. No you flipping well wouldn't, because you would get short shrift, and told where to get off. You do not have, or should not have what you cannot afford. Pretty much the ground rules of life, or should be. This is nothing to do with how hard it is to raise 11 children, it is about what a sponger she is to indulge herself and have 11 children she has no means to support, just let the workers of this country pay for her, and then expect a nice big home to put them all in. I don't care how hard it is for her to look after so many children, its a bit like a hangover after having too much to drink .... self inflicted !!

    By 12347192, Both my comments and those of Bonza Harris make perfect sense. Would it not be best to encourage this woman as she is so keen to have a job, to in fact go out and get one. My daughter has 4 children both her and her husband work. So they are not a drain on honest tax payers. Most school's provide after school clubs where by the children can stay until collected by their parents. There is no conceivable reason why Ms Frost can not do the same. She has a partner on the dole so again with him at home he is very capable of looking after his children. No shame in that, there are plenty of house husbands who do just that while their wives work. I m uncertain if MS Frost eldest daughter and her children actually live with her mother, If this is the case then she should find a place of her own, she need to apply to Severn Vale Housing Association, I m sure they would find something for her. Also the same goes for the 19 year old son. Both long over due from flying the nest, and freeing up space for the other children. Plus like I have already said..get rid of or at least slim down the ZOO..it all goes to help save money. She should not have to depend on her mum, who has no doubt worked hard to pay her way, pity her good example was not learned by her daughter. I just feel sorry for the children growing up with bad examples. Lets all hope there will be a sensible out come.

    'by chickadeegirlTuesday, February 26 2013, 6:30PM' your post contains so many contradictions I don't know where to start. 'by bonzaharris1Monday, February 25 2013, 7:25PM ' you are still missing the obvious point that you cannot by definition have kids to _avoid_ work, since raising kids, esp. multiple ones is extremely hard work

    Most of the comments about this shameless woman is correct. It is a shame her children will sadly grow up thinking Hey,!! This is the norm , all we have to do when we reach age 16, sign on the dole, dosen't matter if we get pregnant as some poor sod will foot the bill and pay for it all. As they are daft enough to go to work and pay taxes. So the lazy habitable scrounging will go on into the next generation, as they have been taught no better.. Children learn by example can't this dim wit realize she is not helping her children as by what I read the majority of her money goes on a fancy and wasteful life style. Get real MS Frost. You say you can not go out to work as you look after the children..poppycot that is. There is plenty of child care about and lets not forget her partner is also on the dole so at home so surely he could look after his children..after all it is not rocket science is it, especially if he is unable to find work. You MS Frost could go on the check outs at either Tesco or Aldi they, I hear are crying out for staff. There you are, problem solved.......Then you will be able to hold your head up as one of the working and tax paying public. You did say in one newspaper I think, that you would love to go out to work. So off you go then....

    i think i share most of the comments that have been made about this adult. However not one of these children is at fault (in the fact they are one of eleven). We just need to do the right thing to support these children and hope they dont turn out like thier mother and know somthing about contraception and with all those rights ,responsibilities too
