Looking at today’s damp dreary weather, Mr Monkey can’t blame South Tyneside Council’s head honcho Irene Lucas for looking forward to her annual garden party.
This annual bash at her manor in Whitburn village is the stuff of legends and has raised an eyebrow or two amongst her neighbours who are used to a quiet and peaceful existence.
Apparently Ms Lucas loves to entertain her guests with live music but unfortunately this doesn’t always meet with her neighbours approval, one of whom had the audacity to call the Community Wardens to report loud music coming from the manor. This upstanding member of the community reckoned that the noise was disturbing the tranquility and peace of Whitburn village and wanted something done about it.
It seems that the Community Wardens paid a call on Ms Lucas and told her that they’d received a complaint from her neighbours and advised her to turn the music down.
Mr Monkey can’t help wondering how the warden service logged this complaint?
