Maldon: Landlords call time on pub group
5:00pm Saturday 21st September 2013 in Local News
A pub association has folded after 29 years.
The Maldon and Dengie Licensed Victuallers Association (LVA) had provided a network for landlords and ran safety schemes such as Pubwatch and Behave or Be Banned with police.
It also raised money for good causes in the town.
Treasurer John Linton, manager OAKhouse Bar Café, said: “The LVA has been established since 1984 however, since the changing in licensing laws in 2003 and the need for membership to assist in applying for later trading hours was removed, membership and activity has slowly decreased to a minimal amount.
“The current committee has decided that any existing funds will be dispersed between various local charities chosen by them.
Current or ex-members that want to nominate a charity can call Ray Cornish on 07860 830526 or John Linton on 01621 859965
