Anyway, hound the council, that’s what we did and they did come round a few times with his machine to test the noise and if it was compliant. They then formally write this down and I think after 3 of these they sent a letter to them which eventually made them turn the music down in that particular room of the pub. ( after I’d moved out).
I also know a friend who’s boyfriend had noisy neighbours in the flat upstairs and the council sent him a machine he had to use every time they were noisy and write down the decibels. After a bit they sent a letter to the neighbours too and it stopped.
Are you on no way speaking terms with tjem? Even though she comes to the foodbank? You could just initially try and in the friendliest, non confrontational, nice neighbour kind of way and ask her to keep it down?

The fuck you expect moving next to a lively pub?

Hope you've fucked off out of Hackney.

Thanks for the advice, will knock on the neighbours on my terrace and see if I can rally a bit of support, must be disturbing them too.

Had the same problem last summer and managed to get rid of him.
You need to find out who the landlord is if she's renting and really ramp up the pressure on them to get rid of her, it took us about 8 months but worked. If you give the landlord a hard time it will force their hand, we tried the local council who did fuck all, we even had the police out several times who 'had a chat' but did fuck all.
We knocked on neighbours and I passed on the landlords number so everyone was pressuring them, it's the only way.

So we’ve briefly spoken to her about it politely. No change. The someone else must have reported her at some stage because she started to pack up at 11pm on the dot. Then it’s gradually crept back in so we’re like fuck it… going to report her every time. To be honest the rest of the street is quiet as. Mostly older couples who probably don’t want to get involved.

Relax bro! Laughing out loud

But just to clarify it was fine until around a month I moved in but they opened a new room for a while near my room in the flat.

and I lived in Hackney until 2 years ago and would happily still live there.

The noise complaint through council every single time is the way to go, will take time but eventually she'll be fucked if she doesn't behave. Also, if you have neighbours you can get on board then several separate complaints speeds up the process. If it's your gaff and you plan to stay the long haul then just grin and bare it whilst you complain.

Feel your pain though, i've had it before and it's fucking depressing.

Some friends of mine live in Leyton and an illegal social club at the bottom of their road has been operating on and off for 2 years. They’ve sone everything the council advised, made all the complaints etc. They’ve just started up again and they’ve had enough and put their house on the market.

Not trying to piss on your cornflakes bruk but it could be a long road for you (hope not for your sake though)

People pissed up from pubs at night I can understand everyone has done that at some point, just life. If you buy got to tolerate.

Noisy neighbours / flats is hell.

The biggest difference I’m finding moving back to city centre action is people riding insanely loud motor bikes like harleys after 11pm, fuck all you can do.

Somebody on my road has a mustang and drives to their cafe not more than 500m away every morning at 6:30am, I’m up anyway but serious arsehole action.

And obviously seagulls never sleep.

I have social housing opposite where I live. This guy had a dog and it was kept in such poor condition. On Christmas Eve I counted 8 dog shits outside my doorstep. I sent out Mrs X, pregnant with our second child, with a bucket of hot soapy water and a cleaning rag. Every day for the next week there was dog shit. ‘It has to be bozo’ I thought..

… and so I purchased a camera that senses movement in the night and an SD card. We caught him. In the middle of the night he would take the dog out and go up and down 20 feet then go inside again. We wrote to the council and nothing happened so my wife wrote an sternly worded note and gave me dog poo bags . I put them on his door handle and taped the note to his wall. After an hour I thought it was a harsh of her and went to retrieve the note. He opened the door….

I told him it was disgusting. In his yokel voice he said ‘sorted, sorted’. We never saw the dog again - it’s probably dead.

Going to a wedding evening do tomorrow night, can I get away with some cropped chinos/linen trousers, short sleeve camp collar shirt and some loafers?

Not been to just a night do for years, does anyone really care what people are wearing at that point? It’s gona be hot and I don’t think it’s a mega fancy gaff.
