Chav website wins award according to

According to news posted on, the Chav website SavvyChavvy has won an award for the way it helps communities stay in touch.

According to them, Chavvy comes from the old Romany word, meaning Youth. The website isn’t for chavs though, it’s for gypsies, or travellers.

I always thought chav was from the phrase ‘Chelmsford Average’, meaning scum. You learn something new everyday.

The article also talks about an award for a virtual nightclub in second life, for disabled people. I’m not even going to comment on that one!
