  1. What’s the timeline for “Cheltenham Average” by the way, do you know? When I was at school in Staffordshire in the early eighties “chav” was a local term synonymous with “mate” as in “bocca chav” was a friend you went smoking (bocca being cigarette for some reason) with, “aright chav” was “alright mate”.

    Tim adds: I was working in Cheltenham in the 80s and it seemed well established then.
