David P: Why oh why is it that on a sunny Sunday morning someone has to get a petrol powered strimmer going? Should we ban them on Sunday mornings or is it an essential time for people to catch up on their plot maintenance? May 3, 2020 17:42:36 GMT
Admin: It would certainly be nice if there were some quiet days! Or maybe make them all quiet days with some days/times where petrol power tools can be used by exception? May 4, 2020 7:36:54 GMT *
csdhamptonwick: I think we need to allow some timeslots for people to use tools, including some time at weekends to cater for those who work. But quiet time would be GREATLY appreciated too .. it's one of the main benefits of going to the allotment. May 4, 2020 11:08:45 GMT
jennyb2728: We call it ‘Strim Sunday’ - would definitely support a quiet time allocated, especially during the weekend when many people (in the olden days when they went out to work..) would value a quiet Sunday.. May 7, 2020 12:55:29 GMT
David P: I think we should also do more to encourage battery powered strimmers. I have one from Argos that gets round my plot in one charge. It is made in China of course. (Other brands are available.) But it is much quieter than the petrol ones and nearly as good. May 13, 2020 9:23:12 GMT
jennyb2728: My strimmer (or ‘strummer’ as comes up!) is lightweight, battery operated and reasonably quiet - I try only to do short bursts, especially if plotholder neighbours are around and I do say, with apologies that I’ll be making some noise.... May 13, 2020 13:12:10 GMT
Bobert: A designated quite time is a good idea - no petrol, battery or human-powered noise. Sunday mornings would be nice with lifting the restriction at 12:30. May 15, 2020 20:04:58 GMT
