Family’s urgent plea to find missing loved one

Have your say

A GROUP of 10 pubs and licensed shops across Fareham have passed the test of not serving alcohol to children as part of a test purchasing operation by Hampshire police.

Underage volunteers, with plainclothes police officers from the licensing team, went into the shops and pubs on Saturday, February 1, to see if they would be sold alcohol.

All of the premises passed the test by refusing service when they saw that they were underage.

Chairman of the Community Safety Partnership, councillor Arthur Mandry said: ‘This result shows that the hard work of the Community Safety Partnership has paid off.

‘I would like to thank everyone for their commitment to reducing underage alcohol sales in the borough.’
