Paying a price for silence.

MEMBERS of Canley Sports and Social Club have pledged to be good neighbours after ending up in court for being too noisy.

They say the club has now been soundproofed since Coventry magistrates fined them pounds 1,000 and ordered them to pay pounds 593 costs last Wednesday.

The club has admitted that a children's disco contravened a noise abatement notice already served on them by Coventry City Council's environmental health department.

Yesterday Club secretary Jim Brownlee said nearly pounds 7,000 had been spent to limit noise pollution.

He said: "We could have spent the pounds 1,000 fine on more measures to soundproof the club or on improving facilities for the community.''

He added that the club, which has 1,700 members, had also switched rooms for entertainments.
