Drums annoying

Any organization that sponsors an activity during the summer holidays for the enjoyment or instruction of young people is to be applauded.

However, drumming practice in the centre of peaceful Qualicum Beach, 12 hours a day for reportedly a whole month is clearly not appropriate.

Homes, businesses, small catering establishments, in the busiest part of town, where heavy noise is in direct line of sound waves is not welcome.

Many people, particularly old folk, are being denied their inherent right to enjoyment of their open windows or verandas and sidewalk seating.

Seniors who need normal rest and quiet, often after hospital stays, are upset and frustrated.

There are surely some better location alternatives.

With planning, the drum enthusiasts need not be curtailed in every way.

Trumpeting, motor cycle engine testing in the heart of a residential area are even legal activities but common sense dictates the necessity of a suitable venue.
