Pub Watch Scheme does run all year

Have your say

I AM writing in response to Steve Cattell’s column regarding the Pub Watch Scheme and the article regarding emergency bans over the festive period in the Journal dated December 20, 2011. He questioned why the scheme only ran at Christmas.

The Pub Watch Scheme, which is an independent group run by licencees and supported by Lincolnshire Police and South Kesteven District Council, operates all year round, not just at Christmas.

The article was to remind people visiting licensed premises that the trade and the authorities want you to come out and have an enjoyable night out, but those who cause problems may find themselves banned from all town centre premises to ensure Grantham is a safe place to have a night out.
