More hours for the Club

The Galleywood Social Club in The Street has had its application to sell alcohol extended until 11.30 pm from Monday to Thursday and to 12.30 pm on Friday and Saturday and 11 pm on Sunday. Complaints about noise from the club had been raised by Dr Wilson, an intensive care specialist, who had moved into his house in Chaplin Close immediately behind the club. The club chairman, Roy Norfolk, said that windows had been left open in the summer because heat from equipment in the bar had affected staff. He said that all live performances had now been moved to the former British Legion Hall at the front of the premises. Councillors at the licensing committee agreed the extension could go ahead subject to all doors and windows being closed when music is playing and a noise limiter device being fitted.
