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.”
