Seminar for local licensees

HIGH Peak licensees are to receive advice on how to tackle under-age drinkers and people who have drunk too much alcohol at a free seminar taking place in Buxton.

Partners led by High Peak Borough Council, Derbyshire Police and Derbyshire County Council Trading Standards are staging the event at the University of Derby, Buxton Dome on Tuesday, October 23 at 11am.

A register of licensees attending the seminar will be kept for reference should problems occur in the future at premises where training was not sought.

Inspector Martin Coey, who is in charge of policing in the Buxton, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Whaley Bridge and Hope Valley area, said: “We would encourage as many local licensees as possible to come along to the seminar and top up their knowledge of licensing issues.

“While we continue to work hard with partnership agencies to keep the High Peak safe, we need the support of the people who manage local pubs, bars and restaurants”.
