How to lose friends . . .

Were we the only people in Blackwell to be disturbed by two weeks of noise during August? According to the Parish Council and Blackwell Court, we were.

Earlier in the year more than 700 of us received letters from Blackwell Court informing us of two events, and the subsequent noise and disruption which would be caused. We were addressed as “friends and neighbours”. 

The people of this village appear very tolerant and probably moved to the area for many reasons including communication links, schools etc., and most definitely peace and quiet. We would suggest their reasons did not include inane drumming at 8am in the morning and loud music at 10.30pm each night.

The great opportunity Blackwell Court offers young people is fully recognised. However, it is in danger of losing its “friends” and annoying its “neighbours” if it continues to allow longer and louder events year on year.

If you were disturbed we would urge you to contact your local representative.

John and Jane Scott, Blackwell
