Leonard backs campaign to keep noise down

Alliance Party South Belfast Representative, Allan Leonard, has backed
a campaign launch by Queens Students Union to encourage students to
keep noise levels at a minimum at night. The campaign called SSHH is
being run by Queens Students Union in co-operation with Belfast City
Council.

Allan Leonard said: “I welcome this campaign and hope it is successful in reducing noise at night in student areas.

“This is an excellent display of student leadership and I want to
give it my full support. It is only through student-led initiatives
like this that students can ultimately change their often negative
image.

“This initiative will encourage students to feel part of the
community that they live in. It will hopefully create better relations
between students and long-term local residents.

“Its not just about keeping noise down, its about keeping the streets clean and respecting local people.

“Students should enjoy themselves on nights out, but they should
remember that many people who live in their areas have to get up early
in the morning to go to work.”
