Hope for ban on noisy tools

Daily Echo: Hope for ban on noisy tools Hope for ban on noisy tools

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.”

the idea has been mentioned to a parish councillor ?

well with that tidal wave of public opinion I think we can all look forward to peace in our time (1 afternoon a week - day to be agreed)

Although this article is based on utter nonsense, I was under the impression that Itchen Valley was a "dead part of town" ?

I have the solution.
Offer her the "hands on" technique. Then you may find the need to watch TV completely unnecessary.........

Could brighten up Sunday afternoons for both of you !!

I can sort of understand why some people what less noise.

I was trying to sleep last night, it was hot so I had to open the window.

I live near Iceland in Shirley.

I could hear a motorbike/scooter. I wasn't happy.

I would have thought a motorbike/scooter would have been the least of your problems.... especially living in Shirley :)
