Dear Hanna Gibson,

Thank you for your response.

I noticed that there are three premises that don't have "Alc" written next to them. Am I right in assuming that they don't have 24 hour alcohol licences?

Also, in the list there is Town Hall, Function Hall, Club, Public House (x3) and Offices. Are all these really licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours a day for consumption OFF the premises?

Thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Oliver Jackson

Dear Mr Jackson,

Thank you for your email, and apologies for the information being unclear in the list I provided you.

I can advise that the premises that do not have 'Alc' next to them are the takeaways, who have to have a licence to sell hot food and drink between the hours of 11pm and 5am, but do not sell alcohol. I apologise that this data was included on the list, as this should have been removed before it was sent to you.

In regard to your other query, I can advise that the Town Hall does not sell alcohol to consume off the premises, but the Function Hall, Club, Public House (x3) and Offices do

I hope this is helpful.

Kind Regards
