A LIVING room sprang up in the middle of Stafford and Stone’s town centres as part of a two-day roadshow offering people advice on dealing with noisy neighbours.
The elaborate marquee – which included items seized from offenders including ghetto blasters, games consoles and an electronic keyboard – was set up by Stafford Borough Council’s Noise Action Team to promote Noise Action Week and offer people of the borough guidance on dealing with the nuisance noise.
Councillor Frank Finlay, cabinet member for the environment, who joined the team in Stone, said: “We have advised people on everything from dogs barking to revving cars.
“Noise is an issue that people really are passionate about,” he said.”There can be few things worse than not being able to get peace and quiet in your own home.”
He said it was important the team had enjoyed the opportunity to get out in the nice weather and tell people about their rights and ways the council could help them.
