Troublemakers face town-wide drinking ban if they misbehave

Have your say

FESTIVE drinkers who cause trouble face the prospect of an immediate ban from every pub in town, warns South Kesteven District Council.

An emergency Pub Watch committee will be in place over the festive period to ensure that anyone who misbehaves over Christmas will be banned from all the town’s pubs and bars.

SKDC cabinet member Coun Paul Carpenter said: “There is no right of automatic entry into any licensed premises and even when the ban expires you may still find yourself excluded so please think before you act.”

Pub Watch is run by licensees in Grantham and supported by Lincolnshire Police, SKDC’s Licensing and Community Safety teams and CCTV operators.
