Bloody hell, I'd be furious if that were my childs school.

Whiny self-pbsessed tit just about covers it, I think.

Unbelievable!!!!!

OMG shock .
Tell me there's more to this story, like the school trebled in size in the last 3 years, something to justify this attitude.

I've just posted that article to my fb page with the caption nimby w**kers, which I think just about sums it up!

We had a noise complaint like this to our local pre-school from grumpy bugger next door. He threatened to go to Environmental Health

Why buy a house next to the school if you are such a complaining curmudgeon?

My Great Gran's sheltered accommodation was overlooking a Primary school, she used to sit on her balcony and listen to the children playing, she said it made her smile.

That's outrageous. We live opposite a large infant school - the noise is unbelievable at times. But we knew it was there when we bought the house - it's our problem, not the pupils' problem.

When DHs grandad was buried - there was a playground near the graveyard. We could hear the children playing as the priest did his speech over the grave. It was rather lovely.

Some people are utter miseries.

I am VERY surprised that the school has bowed to it tbh.

Stupid bastards. If you live near a school then there will be noise!

Hopefully the council will see sense. You have to feel sorry for children who have no gardens or open spaces nearby as school playtime maybe the only time they can let off steam. Yes, playtimes are noisy. But they are regular so why don't the whingers go inside at 10.30 for 15 minutes and turn the TV up loud. Same at lunchtime - go out for a walk for an hour etc. It's not like it's non-stop.

I bet the people who complained also go on holiday to France and then complain that the people spoke French. Fools.

Is it definately the noise of the kids or is it the parents. I've lived near a school for years - noise of children, nice and life affirming, but the noise of the mums drives residents nuts.

Tough.

c0rns1lk Fri 17-Sep-10 18:15:29

Miserable twats

I dare say that the school was there long before the complainants moved in.

MaMoTTaT Fri 17-Sep-10 18:17:51

unbelieveable - they should be glad that they didn't live as close to the school hall and reception classrooms (plus 1 YR1 classroom) as I used to.

They were literally the otherside of my (small) gardenwall.

I used to be able to sit at the computer and hear them doing PE in the hall - thud, thud, thud, thud of 30 little feet......worn my elephants

Did they not notice the school when they bought the house?

TheCrackFox Fri 17-Sep-10 18:20:14

Wouldn't it have been easier for the school to have bought the "a whiny, self-obsessed tit" some ear plugs?

I live very close to a school and the noise at play time is incredibly loud. Still, it would never occur to me to complain - I actually like the sound of children playing.

giveitago, Mums at playtime? What do you mean?
I agree with all who have said miserable Gits!!
