I'm sitting in my house with all the windows shut (though Id like them open in this weather) trying to listen to a very beautiful Mozart aria on the Proms and all I can hear is thump, thump, thump from the Pells again. So are any of the management committee going to come on to the forum to explain why I have to listen to the Pells instead of the proms?

This is Lewes. Your music is there all year the Pells open for few days each year. Live and let live, life is too short, stress less....

I'll tell you how to achieve a result, complain to environmental health. But as a side thought be a good neighbour and approach Pells first, they might not be aware of the issue.

I want to approach the management committee of the Pells but they are clearly too cowardly to defend their position on this forum! That is if they have a position or more likely they don't manage their bookings properly.

The Pells was there before you moved in, if you don't like it, move.

Rubbish Local. This is about consideration for other people not about who was there first. You are not in the school playground anymore. Or is your Dad bigger than my Dad!? Grow up.

How often is the Pells open past 9pm in the Summer? Is it unreasonable on a Friday night for music to be played at the Pells before 9pm? If you move in to Lewes and are next door to an outdoor swimming, or Pub you would expect there to be noise. Why should the Pells compromise with someone who cannot be bothered to talk to them about the noise? Why should the Pells Committee come on the forum to discuss the issue? The options are simple 1) put up with it 2) speak to the Pells 3) move house away from the Pells. Hopefully not too play ground for you Celine.

Celine, maybe if all your windows were open and I was living close to you your 'beautiful Mozart aria' would disturb me.
Unless you want to live in complete isolation it appears that you will never achieve tranquility.

The problem ofcourse is amplified music. It really doesn't have to be played so loudly. It is not reasonable that people are placed under seige in their own home. And it is perfectly reasonable for Celine to want to preserve her peace and quiet in the face of invasive thumping music. Nor should she be told to go for a nice walk. Environmental Health is the way to go Celine if the pool management are not up for negotiation.

I know of a woman who moved in there and complained to the school about the playground noise . Why live in a town if you want peace and quiet? Can I suggest seriously you get yourself a pair of the readily available wireless headphones. Very lightweight and comfortable, you don't feel you are wearing them. Turn up the volume, everyone's a winner.

Instead of ranting behind a keyboard get off your backside and go and speak to the Pells face to face. Why should they make themselves available on a forum just because you can't be bothered to walk or at least phone?

We have left messages for them but no one gets back to us surprise suprise. I think it is reasonable to bring this to a local forum because the Pells is a local amenity and how it's managed and therefore affects people who live near it is a local issue. I'm ignoring the usual ignorant postings such as the usual DFL rubbish. Poor thinking ability is all it demonstrates. Amplified music and other unnecessary noise is a real problem.

Why do people move into properties close to venues that have events and then moan about noise?
It's every bit as daft as people who move to the country and then complain about the noise of farmers harvesting late into the evening.

I am actually not living in the Pells area so how would I know it existed? Also, it's a swimming pool not a music venue. That's what I was told, and that's what it is. The music venue is very much a secondary and relatively recent phenomenon. If you want to turn somewhere into an entertainment venue you need to make sure you're not creating a noise nuisance.

Celine as I said in my first post, just call the council. FYI you can get some fairly accurate decibel meter for most smart phones, suggest you get one if nothing else it will help you put the noise level in perspective. I'm not saying you're being dramatic but it might be a lot lower than you think.

Live music at the Pells is not a relatively recent phenomenon. I've been going there for at nearly 30 years to listen to live music. And why not, it is an open air public venue. Not that this helps Celine of course, but it is something she should have been warned about maybe.
