Editor: Re: Turn down the volume, Record, letters, July 26.
I am responding to the letter from Steve Vanden-Eykel regarding the music and festivities surrounding Uptown Live!
The last of the music venues shut down at 9:45 p.m. I sat on my balcony in the evening and enjoyed the music that was being played and seeing all the families out and about. It’s a chance to meet your neighbours. This festival happens once a year, and I don’t think there is a need to complain about it.
Simple answer – shut your windows. It’s one day. The pub in the immediate area makes more noise and they carry on until closing – after midnight.
Thanks New West for the great street party.
