LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
When I was 9 or 10 years old my middleaged cousins used to take my siblings and me to see the little cars racing at Western Springs, and when I was at secondary school my friends and I sat on wooden plank seats on the slopes around Eden Park to watch the Empire Games.
I live about 200m from Eden Park and when I hear the cheering I am reminded that families are out in the fresh air, enjoying time away from the TV and computers, etc.
When buying a property it is sensible to check out the area and look at what is around. I grew up on a farm in Pakuranga and the wonderful peace of those days is long gone.
It is no good buying in an area then complaining if you don’t check it out. Maybe double glazing the windows could help, or understand that the noise is short lived. Not like noisy neighbours!
