Fall-out over fire­work noise

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Brian Smith, Blair­gowrie

I’m writ­ing to moan about some­body in the Perth Road/Smith­field Cres­cent area who thought­lessly fired off sev­eral very loud fire­work rock­ets at about 11pm on Sun­day, Novem­ber 5.

Sev­eral of my neigh­bours were wo­ken up by the bangs and com­plained, with one com­ment­ing that she thought her win­dows were com­ing in.

An­other per­son in Golf Course Road also heard the fire­works, which woke her up and up­set her pet.

Fur­ther, sev­eral large sticks and spent fire­work bodies were found in the morn­ing ly­ing in gar­dens, paths and roads close by. Th­ese were con­sid­ered large enough to dam­age cars or hurt passersby.

Whilst few would com­plain about let­ting off fire­works in back gar­dens, surely any per­son who thinks they are de­cent neigh­bours would give con­sid­er­a­tion to those liv­ing close by over tim­ing, size of fire­works, vol­ume of noise and fall-out of de­bris.

If peo­ple want to have a fire­work dis­play I would rec­om­mend that they sup­port and at­tend the town show in Davie Park which, thanks to the ef­forts of Morag Young this year, was ex­tremely suc­cess­ful and fully en­joyed by the many peo­ple who were there and didn’t up­set any neigh­bours.
