Pubwatch comes to Bradley Stoke

National Pubwatch

Local police have announced that a Pubwatch scheme is now up and running in Bradley Stoke.

Three pubs in Bradley Stoke -The Bradley Stoke, The Three Brooks and Baileys Court Inn – have joined The Travellers Rest in Patchway and Stoke Gifford’s Parkway Tavern and Beaufort Arms as founder members.

Neighbourhood Beat Manager PC Steve Palmer was instrumental in setting up the scheme.

The pubs will work together with local police to deal with any issues that arise in or around the licensed premises – including anti-social behaviour, drug dealing/usage, assaults and criminal damage.

Police say that anyone involved in an incident at any one of the premises can be banned from all pubs in the scheme for a period of three to twelve months.

Recent incidents at the Three Brooks pub in Savages Wood Road have seen one man hospitalised after a late night brawl (June 2009) and another hit over the head with a bottle (August 2009).

The Pubwatch scheme is featured in the November edition of the Bradley Stoke neighbourhood policing team newsletter, which also includes articles about firework curfews and anti-social behaviour at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre.

  1. Just to let everyone know at an early opportunity. We had our monthly Pubwatch meeting last week, and 5 people have already been banned for 12 months from all 6 member pubs in ‘The Stokes’ Pubwatch scheme.
    The bans were unanimously agreed by the Licencees of the member Pubs, for offences of drug taking, threats to staff, and public order offences.
    This is a clear indication that Licencees will no longer accept such behaviour, and the Police will support the scheme and ensure it is a success. Other premises are now also looking to join the scheme.
    There will also be Police Operations in the future to further enforce the law, to ensure that local residents are able to enjoy a meal or a few drinks in a safe environment.
