While I welcome the new Vinegar Yard market/food/drink complex (for want of a better description) and actually think it's quite well done, is anyone else disturbed by the constant music? The've got loudspeakers on stands and have played music until 11pm every night since it started on Thursday 21st. They play it during the day too which means there's little escape for me if I want to relax at home. If anyone else finds this a problem I'd like to hear from you as I know from experience that if we team up we are taken a lot more serious with our concerns.

Dear Bluechrissy,
I do not welcome this. I can not believe the Vinegar Yard has just appeared with no consultation from the residents that live in this area. We have a number of resturants and drinking outlets on Bermondsey Street, Tooley Street and afew restaurants on Snowsfields where seating outside is encouraged.
This will bring more people, more noise and the music being played until 11pm is unacceptable. If anyone knows where a formal complaint can be made please post.

Hi Se1 girl,

I also cannot believe that it has just been thrust upon us without any consultation or even a word of warning. The first I knew about it was when it was actually there. I'm so glad you also think the music is unaccaptable: there's no way I can survive until their stated end which is November. I've begun to feel trembly inside after 4 full days of music with almost no respite. And last night I went out to eat with my husband and on the way back I started to feel panicky at the prospect of returning home to more music. Sure enough at 9pm it was still going strong. We should nip this in the bud else I'll have a nervous breakdown. Please email all of the below with your complaints.

Se1 girl if you write then that's you, me and one other person I know that is complaining. That's a good start. If anyone else writes please let me know so we can keep track and. hopefully form some kind of momentum.
