Owner of adult club hits back at complaints over 'shouts and screams' that go on into the night

The owner of an adult club in Lincolnshire has hit back at complaints that they are ‘upsetting nesting birds’ with the ‘shouts and screams’ emanating from within.
At the Pool Shed, they have regular ‘adult-themed’ events that are attended by many open-minded folks who just want to have a good time.
However, it’s a peaceful, countryside sort of place, so there are naturally – pun completely intended – some things to consider, not least the sensibilities of local residents.
The parties can sometimes attract up to and above 200 people, and they can continue on into the wee small hours of the morning.
One birdwatcher told the Sun: "People come from all over the county to see rare birds there. It’s usually peaceful.
"But the club plays music — and there are shouts and screams of excitement."
However, owner Neil Wright says that there’s nothing wrong with his parties, that his club doesn’t ‘provide sex’, and that the claims made against them are ‘hogwash’.
The businessman says that he just wants a licence to sell alcohol.
He told the Lincolnite: “We do have adult parties here but we don't provide sex. We just provide a safe place for people to meet.
“I don't need a sex licence as it's just people who come and meet.
“The application's just to sell alcohol.
"They say it's like a swinging club but it's not – it's a nice place for people to meet where there's a pool, jacuzzi, a bar, and a dance area."
The parties have been going on at the location, near to Boston, since 2009.
However, local objectors say that there are problems with noise and traffic at the club, but Wright believes they’re just against him and the club in general.
“A lot of what they’re saying is hogwash," he said.
“The police and council have visited here and are happy.
“The only representations the application has had is from those living nearby.
“Not once have I had police turn up here, or a complaint to the council.”
Wright says that getting an alcohol licence would allow him to better control how much people are drinking and what they are drinking.
One objection from an anonymous person states: “The single track road through the village has been akin to a racetrack, starting late in the evening and continuing to and from the site until the small hours of the morning.
“This is totally inappropriate in a quiet village setting such as Frampton.
“In addition to the significant increase in traffic volume, the prospect of loud music (both indoor and out) being added to the mix would be a significant intrusion to and erosion of the quality of life in the village.”
