Call for members to join Boston Pub Watch


Free membership until January is being offered by Boston Pub Watch to all town businesses which sell alcohol.

The group has recently expanded its committee and is keen to encourage more representatives from pubs, clubs, restaurants, shops and off-licences to join.

The committee of eight put its heads together to come up with ideas on talks, presentations and trips out – all of which are intended to be both useful and informative to licensees. Members are able to ask for bans to be placed on troublemakers, how long the bans last, or if they will just be given a warning.

As part of the group’s re-launch they are offering free membership from October until the AGM on January 15. It will cost £25 for the year after that. Membership allows anyone who owns/manages a licensed premises to attend meetings and gain access to vital information.

The meetings take place on the last Thursday of the month (except December). They are normally held in the Municipal Buildings in West Street, Boston, at 9.30/10am.

The meeting on October 30 will be attended by the council’s licensing officer who will advise on this month’s changes to licensing laws.

Guest speaker Mike Jessop will also talk about the work the street pastors do in in town on Friday and Saturday nights.
