Ffs, who has a gong in their garden? In all my life I've never known someone to have a gong in the garden. I like to sleep with my window open and the bloody thing goes off every hour. Nothing I can do about it. I just don't know why you would have one.

How good is your aim?

I thought it was a typo, and you meant bong.
I don't know, does it go off by itself, or does someone run out every hour to strike it?
I have a meditation gong, but I have to ding it myself. (inside my house)

I suspect it's some kind of outdoor clock. But why? Or maybe just someone's really loud alarm clock fgrin

Anyone else visualising this in the op's neighbour's garden?

Haha Jean, that's exactly what you should imagine but it's a tranquil little off road cluster of houses. They're a very Bohemian bunch. I suspect someone brought IT back from their trip to a Himalayan retreat smile

I thought you meant the band. "Camembert Electrique" takes me right back

how does it go off? "the bloody thing goes off every hour. "

How does it go off? Something like GONNGGGGGGGGGGG I would have thought.

I imagine they're Buddhist.

but what sets it off?

Sorry for your misfortune, but bloody hell this has made me chuckle. Am now imagining someone running out every hour to hit it!
