Default Noise laws..again

Since the old thread is closed, I thought I'll start it again.

It can't be that I am the only one going crazy with kids around the place. I love kids and have a small one also, but this Spanish kids are driving me crazy. I noved far from the main square since it was noisy, but kids here run wild unsupervised all night and that's ok, not my problem, but why do they have a need to make screeming noises or use loud whistles etc etc..What's up with that?

And the smaller kids just run around like headless chickens all day long, totally bored and screeming climbing on the fences...I don't know...

Just seems shouting all day and night. Do they do this when school year starts also? If yes, how do they get up in te morning?

Totally crazy.
:curse:

Luckily we live up the hill outside the town, so its reasonably peaceful yet we can get the hustle and bustle if we want it by driving down to the town.

But we are plagued sometimes by a dog barking down in the valley

oh yes, dogs...Everywhere...I really don't like them inbetween the tables when I am eating as some are not trained and it really spoils my lunch.

As I write this, teens outside are screeming their heads off just going in the large groups...It seems something they do...To shout and screem and walk up and down the sidewalks. Drive me mad.

I was told to be "nice" as they will be ringing my bell all night and the locals don't seem to worry about the noise. But at present, there is over 20 kids outside and jsut shouting. Where I am, no restaurants, jsut row of apartments and the beach. Why can't they go to disco or something

Just read about a survey done in Spain on the subject of what bothers people most in their neighbourhood - this was a survey of Spanish people rather than Brits.

In the Malaga region noise was the leader by a good stretch...not surprisingly!

It may interest you to know that Spain is the second noisiest country in the world (after, bizarrely, Japan!).

Ah, I can remember the days when kids would go out and do wholesome things like sniffing glue, smoking dope, shagging girls in the park and drinking shed loads of cider!

Where abouts in Graffham?

Egmont has long gone.

turn opposite the halfway house, past the three moles, after that I'd have to recognise the road

the Egmont has gone! "Brezhnev, he never told us!". Makes me feel old, nothing like heading to Midhurst on a Saturday night and taking your life in your hands

It hasnt changed a bit, Midhurst is still as bad. A young boy got stabbed and killed a few years ago and it all calmed down, but it is getting bad again.


Yeah, the Egmont is flats now, pity, it was a good pub.


We actually live near Lodsworth, absolutely love the place but the cheapest place to rent within a 5 mile radius is £1000 a month and that's for a flat, its just getting stupid!

Lynn used to live in Midhurst.

1000 for a flat, bloody hell

Lodsworth? remember the name, but to be honest it all rolls into one for me around there. (just checked on map, remember now)

What I do remember is the "Graffam Rules" that my homies south of the downs (inc myself) coined for the practises of our Midhurst and environs chums - basically Graffam rules permitted the sleeping with and swapping off partners willy-nilly throughout ones teens and twenties. I can't think of one person I know from the area who is not married (or divorced/seperated) to someone who wasn't a previous partner of another friend. (may have over-negatived that)

All seemed quite civil, sort of take one and pass it on.
