Southampton Rangers Sports Club Liquor Licence Renewed With Conditions

Wed, 2019-06-05

Superintendent James Howard – A Liquor Licencing Authority hearing was held on Thursday 30th May 2019 regarding Southampton Rangers Sports Club’s request to renew their liquor licence.

Representatives for the sports club as well as the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) made submissions at the hearing.

On behalf of the Commissioner of Police, I filed a formal objection to the Liquor Licencing Authority.

The objection was based on several documented breaches of the Liquor Licence Act. A series of conditions were also put forward by the BPS, should the Authority decide to grant a licence.

In its official ruling, the Authority has now granted the licence renewal for Southampton Rangers Sports Club – with several conditions – which the BPS supports.

In the interest of public safety, the BPS will continue to meet and work with Southampton Rangers Sports Club and all Members Clubs to eradicate any anti-social behaviour, disorder, gang activity and violence from their establishments – should it be present.

However, the BPS also remains committed to responding to any acts of criminality at liquor licenced premises and reporting any breaches of the Liquor Licence Act to the Authority.
