Unfortunately, all of last night the silversmith & goldsmith firm of Grant Macdonald on Bear Lane
had a noisy generator running, actually sited in the middle of the street! I returned this evening to find the installation still there with an air of permanence.
I recognise the local power problems caused by the grossly inconsiderate contractors at a certain nearby construction site, and the need for a large, reliable supply for such a business. But I am surprised that a local professional, who has recently shown ambitions for public service, made no attempt to abate the noise or pollution. There are many young families within feet of the generator, in this summer weather.
Of course the usual channels are being pursued and I'm sure the forum readers share my expectations of those, so I hope this public message reminds those responsible of the real value of good neighbourliness, as we have known it until this week.
