    Additional Material kindly provided by Derek Pearce after his talk:

    Press Article:- ONE TOO MANY PARTIES FOR NOISY STUDENTS.

    A group of noisy students are each £200 worse off last week because they refused to turn down their noisy music.

    Highgate Magistrates ruled that the students had overstepped the mark when they held a noisy party in January this year. Students all pleaded guilty this week to causing noise nuisance at Maryland Road N22.

    Cabinet member for the environment, Cllr. Nilgun Canver, said:"If people make their neighbours' lives a misery with loud music then we will take action to stop them from doing so. In this instance warnings were not enough and we were forced to take further action. With a busy summer ahead I hope everyone will act in a neighbourly way and respect their neighbours when holding parties and barbecues."

    The students had been formally warned twice in November about excessive noise disturbing their neighbours but still held another noisy party.

    After complaints from neighbours, council noise enforcement officers visited and found loud music and 20-30 people on a sheltered decking area in the rear garden, with mixing desks and speakers. The speakers and guests were moved indoors and the students were warned the equipment may be confiscated if there were further complaints. They were all issued with fixed penalty notices of £100.

    When the students failed to pay the penalties, the case want to court and on 23rd May, they pleaded guilty and were each fined £100 and ordered to pay £100 each towards the prosecution costs.

    This latest prosecution follows the confiscation last month of sound equipment from a Tottenham resident who regularly upset neighbours with loud music from the flat in Broadwater Road, N17.

    In April the resident ignored a formal written warning from the council's enforcement team and more complaints followed.

    The council then issued a noise abatement notice, which again was ignored.

    In April council officers with a warrant entered the flat and removed the sound system.

Ralph was an exceptional leader of Neighbourhood Watch and instrumental in forming the Haringey Borough Association of Neighbourhood Watches in 2003. His energy, enthusiasm and wit will be sadly missed.
