BEER mats and posters reminding revellers to keep late night noise down will be put up in a town’s bars and clubs.
Kettering Council is distributing the reminders in support of Noise Action Week, which highlights the importance of keeping disturbances down to a minimum.
The authority admits many of the noise complaints it receives about late night noise are from those who have come in from a night out.
Councillor Ian Jelley, portfolio holder for the environment, said: “Designed to stand out, the beer mats and posters are aimed to help raise awareness of the negative effect noise can have to people’s quality of life. “We would always encourage residents to think about how their actions impact on their neighbours and this is a light hearted way of reminding people to be ‘noise aware’.”
Noise Action Week runs from Monday, May 21, to Friday, May 25.
