As per Fridays Echo we are unable to open the bar due to a lack of a licence.
Shame as would hav meant more revenue for the club.
Lets hope Castle Point Council and the courts get their fingers out a bit sharpish.

Its not that easy now, I have just applied for a new license, bloody hoops they are making us jump through you would not believe.

Luckily I have experience of the system councils use, god knows how somebody who is new to it would cope.

What exactly does the licence entail? Is it just one to serve alcohol or is it a bit more than that?

I mean will that bar be open tomorrow for Aldershot fans to enjoy a coke? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I do not understand we still have a license and I assume it is within the ground and is therefore covered by our existing license.

The only impact will be when the new licensing laws come into force in November we may have a problem if we have not requested a similtaneous variation.

We can still get a temporary one nowunder the old regime, or request a TEN (Temporary Event Notice) under the new regs.

Ken ask your dad but I think I am right.

You are correct MOB and the "Occasional Licence" has been applied for and granted until the permanent licence is awarded in due course.

So welcome to all the Dagenham & Redbridge supporters who may be the first to enjoy our new little watering hole which we hope will become a popular facility with all away fans in the future.

We also invite all away fans to provide the new bar with a token of their visit preferably with a pennant or scarf to be placed around the bar for others to add to.

Great news - well done to all involved. Lets hope it gets well used.
Just think more drunken bums on the island now at weekends. You'd never see me in that state! (Well maybe you would).
Hope the old bag opposite our car park is pleased! lol

Just read a post on the Burton forum regarding mascots.

Apparently if your son/daughter wants to be a mascot he needs to join a junior supporters club - annual membership is £12. This gives you other benefits like birthday card, parties etc.

This may have been considered before or is covered by the supporters club. Just wondered if this is another possible initiative for the club?

It was packed out and the D&R fans were superb.
Thankyou to them all and please tell other supporters on the various forums to enjoy our new facility and please bring a flag or scarf or pennant to stick on the wall or ceiling or whatever. Cheers.
