Update on Premises Licence Application

Liselle and I attended a lively Long Ditton Residents Association meeting last Wednesday where we answered some of the concerns that local residents have regarding our application. Many were unaware of the way we operate at the moment and whilst we appeased some, there are others who are adamant that we are nothing but a nuisance.

I have seen the representations that have been put to the Council and there are a range of concerns from “whistles, shouts and people speaking” to “the blasting of outdoor music” to “late night noise affecting local wildlife”. All of them raise the same point of people leaving noisily, lingering in the car park and being a drunken nuisance. We can all help our reputation by being more responsible. We are in a residential area and need to take that into account when leaving, especially late in the evening.

Whilst they are all heavily weighted on the negative side, many do say they know what a great club we are and one even likes our ‘annual bonfire night’ (!). We go to a hearing next week so I’ll update you all when there is news.

Water Fountain
Huge thanks to Bathroom Eleven for not giving up on the water fountain, it has taken a year but it is all cleaned out and now flowing as it should be, please make your opposition aware of its whereabouts.

Car Park Reminders
Please do not park in front of the overflow gates, we really do need the space – every day.
On Sunday a car was broken into in the car park, whilst this is a rare occurrence please do not leave anything tempting on display, hopefully the culprit will be caught.

Lost Property
As you all know we deal with a large amount of personal items that are left at the club, whilst we try and make most of it available to be rehomed, there are some items that we will not be able to for general hygiene reasons. Mouthguards and underwear will not be put in the lost property.
