Cyril William Gedge was summoned for keeping his house open for the sale of beer during prohibited hours. On Sunday 30th June, 1912 Police Sergeant Webb had observed Robert Coker, newsagent and Robert Bone, yardman drinking on the premises at 8:30 am. Mrs. Gedge, who had served the beer, said at time, she was very sorry, but did not think she was doing any harm. Mr. Gedge had been upstairs in bed and said he knew nothing of the matter and was also very sorry. He had been licensee for three years and nothing of the kind had happened before. Coker had delivered the newspaper and had been given a half pint of beer. Liable to a fine of £10 Gedge was fined 16 shillings with 4 shillings costs. The other two defendants, who pleaded guilty, were each fined 6 shillings with 4 shillings costs.
