A private members club faces objections from Lancashire Police as it applies for an amended alcohol licence.

The Club Ramblers, formers Fishwick Rambers Working Men’s Club, wants to be able to serve booze until 1am Monday to Thursday and 1.30am on Friday and Saturdays.

Preston City Council says it received an application for a premises licence from agents acting on behalf of Tracy Bamber.

It states it wants the opening hours of the renamed club to be until 1.30am on Monday to Thursdays, 2am on Friday and Saturdays and 12.30am on Sundays.

But Lancashire Police’s licensing officer sergeant John Lovick said: “The police objection to the application on the grounds of crime and disorder and public nuisance.

“Additionally there are insufficient measures in place in order for the police to make an appropriate decision as to whether the premises can promote the licensing objectives and trade safely.”

Council officers say they were notified of the club on Mornington Road, Fishwick, changing its name in October but it did not hear anything from the owners until the application was lodged in January.

The licensing sub committee will review the application on Thursday 27 March from 10am at the Town Hall.

You can view the full application details on the council website.
