Thank you for your reply and your opinion re the ‘teenagers’ which you surmise are doing the drumming (presumably you know them).
Our thoughts in response are:
a) actually there are many more older – and also ill and frail - residents in this area than teenagers
b) the ‘drummers’ are not likely to be the sorts of people ‘shouting on street corners’ if they weren’t drumming, we’re sure they have many other hobbies to keep them occupied and that’s terrific, …but the point was that their hobby is causing a disturbance to the above residents whose lives are being made more stressful (and therefore their health is being further damaged) because of it.
c) Re ‘live and let live’……The above elderly, ill and frail residents would *love* to be fully living, but the stress of the drumming noise is further depleting their already-reduced quality of life.
d) As we've said, we have no wish to make this personal, but we are entitled to ‘peaceful enjoyment’ of our homes which is currently being prevented on those occasions when the drumming occurs
e) It does not hurt teenagers to learn that they need to be considerate to their elders and neighbours, and that if something they are doing for pleasure is unnecessarily hurting other people then they need to make other arrangements (ie hiring a soundproof studio, hall or rehearsal room) which we’ve been told that considerate people do in other areas as soon as they realise the problem.
All the best, and thanks again for your reply and your thoughts.
