Sep 06, 2012 Market News Comments Off on Traders pull plug on ‘noisy’ charity bands
MUSICIANS were turfed out of St Mary’s Market because their fundraising efforts were “too loud”.
National Citizen Service (NCS) teenagers organised for several bands and entertainers to play in the market’s community space last Thursday afternoon (August 30) to help raise funds for Willowbrook Hospice.
But the bands were moved on before they had even finished tuning up following complaints from market traders about the noise.
One of the students, Jade Murphy, (pictured above with fellow organisers) said: “We only had three weeks to organise the event as part of our NCS programme and we all put in extra work to help make it a success. We couldn’t believe it when everyone started complaining.
“People moan when they see young people out on the streets up to no good. But when we go out of our way to organise an event like this we get moaned at too. We can’t win.
