Stop St Mary Abbotts Sunday morning church bells

St Mary Abbotts church on Kensington Church Street has permission from the council to sound their bells for the following periods: Sunday 8:45am - 9:30am Sunday 5:30pm - 6:30pm Thursday 7:45pm - 9:30pm. As busy working professional residents the decibel level, antisocial hour and duration of noise are incompatible with modern peaceful living. We, the undersigned residents, petition the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and St Mary Abbotts Church to stop the Sunday morning noise intrusion and limit all other intrusions to 30 minutes.

Sponsor

    5 years ago Comments: The church has been in Kensington longer than any of the residents and the bells have rung for longer than the residents have been here and will still be ringing when they have left. I for one love to hear the bells and would love to hear the more. It is only small-minded, petty individuals with no sense of community that want to stop them. I urge local people to support the work the church does and to rejoice in the only community voice it has. Please keep them ringing!
