Hope for ban on noisy tools
Updated 7:22am Wednesday 9th July 2014 in News
RESIDENTS of the Itchen Valley are hoping for an unofficial ban on power tools on Sunday afternoons.
The “lazy Sundays” idea has been mentioned to Penny Flemons, chairman of the parish council, who says people feel strongly about having one quiet afternoon a week.
“It has come up so often over the year that people say it would be nice if you knew that one afternoon a week it wouldn’t be noisy,” she said. “There’s always someone using an electric power tool somewhere.”
