Who are the abusers?

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Letters To The Editor -

Oc­to­ber 9 Mo­raira's Oc­to­ber­fest be­gan at 12 noon promptly last Fri­day. Very loud mu­sic be­gan to play un­til about 5pm. A pause and then it be­gan again un­til 5am the next morn­ing. End­less thump thump­ing of tired old songs, in­clud­ing Viva Es­paña, Una Paloma Blanca, etc. etc. Un­able to sleep, along with many oth­ers. Satur­day was a re­peat of Fri­day and again went on un­til 5am in the morn­ing. Sun­day was a re­peat, but un­able to func­tion af­ter los­ing two full night’s sleep we booked into a ho­tel for Sun­day night.

Re­turned home Mon­day and at 12 noon promptly the same band, play­ing the same songs, be­gan again. We hope they will fin­ish on time at 7pm. Who gives the peo­ple who run th­ese events per­mis­sion to abuse lo­cal res­i­dents un­til 5am in the morn­ing on three con­sec­u­tive nights? I am no killjoy, hav­ing danced away in the Cav­ern six weeks ago un­til 1am in the morn­ing and fre­quent a mu­sic ses­sion on a Satur­day in a Mo­raira bar. But im­pos­ing that level of noise on the un­will­ing is not on. Own up! Who al­lowed it? Four­teen hours a day of loud mu­sic is too much. I will go to Benidorm next Oc­to­ber for some peace and quiet. Mrs G H Moore a clear head and mind to find the so­lu­tion that serves you both best. May your proud hearts find this so­lu­tion and shine, for if you don’t, I can only see hard­ship and suf­fer­ing for you both ahead. With great ad­mi­ra­tion for you both

Septem­ber 7 How bril­liant is it to see a bit of TLC (work) be­ing done around Playa Fla­menca, the Coun­cil ac­tu­ally spend­ing money on the Costa and es­pe­cially around Playa Fla­menca and La Ze­nia. That hor­ri­ble rusty fenc­ing across the Ravine just be­fore the Boule­vard has been painted. Wow, thank you, thank you – we have waited so long for some­thing to be done.

Walk­ing past to­day with friends and neigh­bours, we were over­joyed and then we saw all ad­ver­tis­ing fly­ers again. They stopped putting them on the rail­ings and un­der car screen wipers some time ago but they could not wait to ruin the look of our nicely clean painted rail­ings.

This com­pany needs an in­voice sent to their busi­ness for the lit­ter it is pro­duc­ing and the mess it is cre­at­ing in the area we live in and the cost that comes from our taxes to clean up her mess! Although, look­ing at all the lit­ter un­der the rail­ings noth­ing ever gets picked up – the Town Coun­cil can­not make the excuse of “The ravine is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the water com­pany”. They could eas­ily clean it up if they wanted to. A long arm could eas­ily pick up all that rub­bish be­fore it is washed into the ravine, onto the beaches, and into our sea.

This area is full of lit­ter and the Coun­cil do not do their job. They should heav­ily fine the mar­ket traders and shops for us­ing plas­tic bags and heav­ily fine busi­nesses for post­ing fly­ers and stick­ers ev­ery­where be­cause they are mak­ing this area a slum. Why is this ‘free’ ad­ver­tis­ing al­lowed to rub­bish our area any­way? The money gen­er­ated from fines could pay for ex­tra lit­terbins, it makes com­mon sense; oh I for­got Ori­huela City Coun­cil don’t have any and don’t care about the Costa.

Sandie Bates Get your act straight La Nucía, if you’re go­ing to ad­ver­tise an ‘Ok­to­ber­fest’ put some ef­fort into in. Last year was great, this year a dis­grace. A very dis­ap­pointed beer fest fan
