Supermarkets sell cheap alcohol, sometimes at a loss, and less people are going to drink and socialise in Pubs. The high Duty on alcohol is causing many pubs to close at an alarming rate, every week. A Pub is a place in our community where you can socialise with friends, catch up on events, and meet new people.
Under age drinkers are not served alcohol in Pubs, which is a benefit to our community.
The Sky tariff is meant to reflect the Rateable Value of the premises. However there is a Rate Relief scheme in Wales which better reflects an area’s economic strength.
The Sky license should therefore reflect the actual rates paid as opposed to the Rateable Value.
Mae pris Sky ar gyfer llefydd trwyddedig wedi ei osod er mwyn adlewyrchu gwerth ardrethol yr adeilad. Serch hynny mae yna ryddhad ardrethol yng Nghymru sydd yn adlewyrchu gwir gryfder economaidd yr ardal.
Dylai'r trwydded ar gyfer Sky adlewyrchu yr ardreth sy'n cael ei dalu yng Nghymru nid y gwerth ardrethol.

Clubs and Pubs have, for many years, been the cornerstone of many communities in the UK, providing places for leisure, business, entertainment and formerly education of ordinary citizens of the United Kingdom. It provides many thousands of jobs, either directly or indirectly, at various levels and incomes.
Through a number of actions, either enacted by Parliament, or through the mis-interpretation of various Acts and Regulations, these venues are seriously threatened, with many closing and ceasing their various social activities.
It should not be forgotten that the club and pub “scene” has also served at least as “training grounds” for many of the Entertainment “Stars” that we rightly celebrate as great British talent, and continues to be. It is an industry sector that consists of many thousands of businesses and jobs, which not only has a very high value, but is also an extremely important source of revenue to the Exchequer.
We therefore petition Her Majesty’s Government to take swift action to support this entire industry and important source of leisure facilities and activities.
The George pub, 171 Glyn Rd, E5 0JT is the subject of a planning application to turn it into a block of nine private residential flats.
Although it closed as a pub several years ago, it has since been a vibrant site for privately run music nights and performances, community celebrations and even a wedding. It has also played host to local and international artists and musicians.

We want to retain this Victorian pub as a resource for the community and call on Hackney Council to refuse planning permission for a residential development.
In the UK licences have to pay VAT at 17.5% on all 'eat in' food and they are unable to claim back the VAT on the food ingredients as they are zero rated. In Europe the average VAT is 5% on 'eat in' sold. Are we part of Europe or not?
If you agree taxes should be fairer please sign your name below.
Queensland Government has given notice to several venues as to why they should be allowed to serve beverages in glass. The Fortitude Valley is one of, if not, the biggest entertainment precinct in Brisbane.
The valley alone has over 70 000 patrons move through it from Friday to Monday every week. Though statistics prove there has been an increase in the amount of ‘glassing’ incidents, comparatively there are thousands of people whom flow through establishments every weekend without trouble or incident.
This petition is an attempt to stop a tiny minority ruining it for a vast majority.
Save the Five Bells Public House, Riseley
The Five Bells is the last traditional pub in Riseley and its loss will have a detrimental effect on the village community.
The Closure of the Five Bells will mean the end of the skittles, darts and pool teams and it will make it hard to maintain the football and cricket teams, all of which are historic and important to the social fabric of the village.
The pub closed due to lack of investment from the brewery and a succession of poorly vetted tenant landlords. The campaign to save the pub has proven beyond doubt that the Five Bells is still a viable business.
There is huge support to keep the pub with 85% of villagers pledging to use the Five Bells if it’s refurbished and reopened. The current economic down-turn will not last forever, the Five Bells needs to be protected for future generations.
A cash buyer has come forward to buy the Five Bells and keep it as a pub, but the brewery Greene King has opted to sell to a housing developer – even though the cash buyer offered more money than the developer!
The existing ‘pub’ in the village is not a traditional pub – it is predominantly a restaurant and does not offer any of the amenities of a village pub. It keeps restaurant, not usual pub opening hours and village farm workers and labourers cannot use it straight from work.
The developer has applied to ‘change the use’ of the Five Bells from a pub (A4) to residential (C3), once use has been changed, it’s almost impossible to change it back.
The Highway public house in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire is at risk of losing its license to trade because of a recent police drugs raid.
The raid resulted in only 2 arrests, both of which were for possession of illegal substances and were later released by the police.
The size of the raid and resulting action was disproportionate to both the size and character of this family oriented pub. The pub licensees, Ian and Sue Bradford have never condoned the use or dealing of drugs of any kind on their premises and would immediately bar anyone caught doing so.
The Highway is a responsibly run, friendly, non violent venue, which accommodates family clientèle with their children, including the licensee's own.
Action resulting in closure of the pub would be tragic, as it is a pillar of the local community and would ruin their continuing work for the Royal British Legion charity.
From the 1st July 2007 it has become illegal to smoke in any place of work including;
pubs and clubs
Most people agree with non smokers' rights to not have to breathe in other people's smoke but what about the smokers? Do they not have the right to smoke if they choose? Why should they be forced outside in the cold and wet?
Let's ask the government to rethink the smoking ban to allow pubs and clubs and other places of work to - if they choose to - provide smokers with a dedicated smoking place inside buildings.
Let's look at pubs etc where if you wish to drink you have to do that inside as you are not allowed to drink on the streets yet you can only smoke outside, seems ludicrous!!
This is a petition against the removal of John and Becky Whinnerah.
