Late night drinks a cause for concern
PEOPLE’S social lives have changed so much in recent years and licensing laws have been updated to reflect that.
Family life and working shift patterns are so different to what they were a generation ago, people are coming and going at all hours of the day and night.
So it is not unusual to see nightshift workers in a pub at breakfast time, and evening workers unwinding in a bar well into the early hours. Most people now take it for granted. But the fact that an off-licence in a busy residential street on the Welland estate wants to stay open to sell booze until 4am is alarming.
A city centre late bar is one thing, but does anyone want people wandering near their homes in the middle of the night in search of drink?
