The Season Lengthens

For the past 16 years I have endured the intolerable noise from cannons with the comfort of at least knowing the season would end at the beginning of September and peace would once again blessedly descend. I sit here in Surrey now as October is about to arrive still hearing cannons - one firing every 30 seconds - as new varieties of berries extend the season further every year.

When will this nonsense stop? How, in a supposedly civilized country can a small group of inconsiderate farmers inflict so much disturbance on so many people with apparently no concern by those who are supposed to control such things?

I really hope someone does eventually realize the harm propane cannons cause.
