SELWYN TIMES Tuesday September 13 2016 7 News Pub back advertising liquor • By Tom Doudney THE Hospitality Association of New Zealand has welcomed a “precedent-setting’’ ruling which allows the Prebbleton Tavern to advertise its offlicence alcohol prices to passers-by. The Gilmore family, who own the bar and bottle store, had appealed the Selwyn District Licensing Committee’s decision to add a new condition prohibiting it from advertising alcohol outside the premises when renewing its liquor off-licence last year. In its decision released last week, the Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority ordered the condition be removed. Hospitality Association regional manager Amy McLellan-Minty said it was a very good and sensible decision to overturn the “unjustified” condition. “I’m just really happy for the Gilmores because they can get back to what they have been doing for the past 30 years.” She believed the case would set a precedent for other offlicensed premises which wished to advertise prices outside. The district licensing committee’s chairman Al Lawn said that “as with all judicial precedent, the committee will take it into account when considering future alcohol licence applications.” When imposing the condition, the district licensing committee had stated that advertising outside the premises detracted from the amenity of the locality and placed alcohol “in the faces of those who pass by.” However, Mr Gilmore had argued that it wasn’t fair to limit advertising for his off-licence when supermarkets and other alcohol retailers were able to advertise more freely; and that there was no evidence of harm caused by the signage. In summarising its decision, ARLA found that the condition was unreasonable because the district licensing committee had failed to provide supporting evidence that the signage would increase the risk of alcohol-related harm or detract from the amenity of the locality. Tavern manager Shannon Gilmore said he was ecstatic about the decision. “I’m happy that the process was followed and the right outcome has happened at the ITS BACK: Prebbleton Tavern manager Shannon Gilmore wasted no time in putting signage for his off-licence back outside following a successful appeal against a Selwyn District Licensing Committee decision. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER end of the day. Unfortunately, it has been at the cost of our business and our trade,” Mr Gilmore said. The decision comes hard on the heals of another bit of good news for the tavern which has been named as one of 10 national finalists in a competition to find the best pub which serves Guinness.

Rolleston Library will host a digitisation day on September 25 from 1-5pm. Selwyn Libraries manager Vicki Carlyon said along with photos from Rolleston’s past, recent images would also be considered for display at the Rolleston 150 th celebration in October, “The images will help create a story about Rolleston’s origins and how the town has developed over time,” she said. “These could include photos of local landmarks like schools, major shops and parks, people at work and at play, important events in our history and other images that create a picture of what life was and is like in Rolleston.” People could bring along images, slides and negatives they had at home which would appeal to the wider public so that they could be digitised. People would also need to sign an agreement allowing libraries to keep a copy of images in Selwyn Libraries digital collection for future use. Anyone who would like a digital copy of their image would need to take a USB stick with sufficient memory. NEW SEASON essence Classical Design combining traditional timeless elegance with quality.

Organic bin tips To ensure your organics wheelie bin is fully emptied every time: Keep the bin weight reasonable. If you find it difficult to move the bin, then you may find it exceeds the truck lifting limits and could be left behind unemptied. Keep organic bin contents loose. Don’t compact your material by standing on it (it may not come out when tipped by the truck). Place weeds, branchy material or newspaper at the bottom of the bin before filling with grass clippings. This reduces the likelihood of the grass clippings getting stuck. Organics only! Absolutely NO plastic bags! No metals, glass, rocks or stones, bricks or rubbish please. These cause considerable damage to the organics shredder. Put flax and cabbage leaves in your rubbish. Make sure your bin is not over full – the lid must close.
