On Friday 7th October 1938 the Superintendant Cooper objected to the granting of a licence to Cecil Wire. A temporary transfer had already been granted and on Sunday 28th August 1938, a police-constable had hidden behind a hedge and witnessed a person enter the doorway at 10:30 a.m.
Mrs. Emily Violet Fish who was helping out at the house, in the absence of Mrs. Wire, sold 1s worth of whisky to Arthur George Precious, who said he was unwell.
The magistrates said it was most unusual for a man to be charged in a licensing case and to apply for a licence transfer in the same court.
Wire was ordered to pay 6s costs and Precious and Fish to each pay costs of 4s.

Sales 1960 were barrels of beer 78, spirits 21

Closure NOT agreed when proposed by S&P at first Joint Committee Meeting of Bullards and Steward & Patteson 29 May 1962.
Sales then said to be 66 barrels.


Thanks Ed.....and again 23.09.06, 18.05.07, 21.10.12, 18.10.16,
