New Year Extended Hours

Current liquor licence holders have been granted extended opening hours this New Year's Eve.

Liquor Licensing Board Chairman, Mr. Mitchell Welds, has confirmed that liquor licence holders will be permitted one additional business hour beyond regular closing times, as specified on their licences.

"The extension applies to all seven categories of licences," Mr. Welds said, "but different categories have different closing times."

He also reminded business owners that licence stipulations will still be in effect. "Liquor sales and the playing of music must cease during the last ten minutes of permitted opening hours for retail, hotel, restaurant and beer/wine categories of licenses and all customers must vacate the premises before closing."

For more information, licence holders and members of the public may contact the Liquor Licensing Board Executive Secretary, Marva Scott, by calling 244-3168 or emailing
