Residents of Eton Raise Funds for Commissioning a Report to Present to Police about Night Time Noise

Eton High Street

 

Eton residents over the past few weeks have complained revellers walking back to Slough from Windsor’s pubs were causing problems in Eton.

Eton residents’ claimed people knock on doors, ring bells and regularly keep them awake between 11 PM to 4 AM.

They have raised £2,000 towards commissioning a report to help argue they need extra police to deal with the noise.

The data will be collected over 3 months and shared with Windsor and Maidenhead council and police.

‘Enormous amount of noise’

Once the target of £3,600 needed for the survey is raised , the fundraisers say they will hire experts from a private company to carry out noise surveys every night from 11 PM to 4 AM.

Malcolm Leach, an Eton resident, said the majority of visitors to the town did not cause any problems.

“We do get the odd ones where they are drunk, and they are stupid, and they have fights, and they have arguments,” he said.

“If you have gangs together they can cause much noise.”

Mr. Leach believes people go out in Windsor and then either walk back to Slough, Cippenham and Chalvey through Eton or cross the bridge to Eton to pick up a cab, as it is cheaper to take one there than in Windsor town centre.

The Windsor and Maidenhead Borough Council are interested too in seeing the results and will study it once it has the data.
