Save The Harlow Square Official Petition.
More Info at:
Allow the continued sale of alcohol at the Square, in the recognition that the target age range includes young people legally old enough to buy alcohol, under-age young people are not served alcohol at the Square, and The Square will struggle to continue its community and youth work and entertainment function as a result of the loss of revenue that will be caused by the plans to ban the sale of alcohol within the Square.
Allow the continued booking/promotion of bands of all ages, in order to prevent a loss of revenue and decline in ticket sales.
Scrap plans to refuse youth work with young people under the influence of drugs, including alcohol; young people with drug problems are those who need youth work the most, and as previously mentioned, this limit would include 18 and 19 year olds who have legally bought alcohol.
We feel that the councils proposals this will destroy The Square, and will lead it to its demise.
We are angered that ECC did not inform the public properly and sooner.
We do not agree with the ECC universalizing youth policy and forcing it upon The Square.
We see the Square as a music Venue for all ages, doing valuable Youth Work.
We demand the ECC to take notice of our views.
Please do not use rude language. Please add sensible comments, ones that will make the council reconsider.
