AGAIN, the residents of South Perth and surrounds were subjected to an assault on our ears as fireworks exploded in South Perth at 8.15pm on Thursday, April 14.
No notice was advertised to warn us of this event in our local newspaper and as always the first explosion had us jumping out of our skins.
Not only does it cause fear to most domesticated animals, but it also must do so as well to the fauna living nearby in the river wetlands.
Residents, if this regular noise causes you distress, please complain to your local councillors and make your feelings known.
In addition, I am more than certain if a decibel machine were to measure the percussion from most of the explosions it would register well over the acceptable “'limit”.
We have no recourse once these explosions begin and have to “wait it out” unfortunately. SUSAN KELLY, South Perth. the following Monday. Are the Eagles and Dockers trying to make their supporters fat?
It is time for WA football to think seriously about the messages that these sponsorship agreements send our children and stop the advertising of junk food at the game. LIZ BRADSHAW, Victoria Park.
