Pub applies to extend hours

A WEST Hallam pub will find out if it can extend its opening hours at a council meeting on Tuesday January 18.

The Newdigate Arms has asked Erewash Borough Council to vary the time customers can buy alcohol and music can be played from 12.30am between Thursday and Sunday to 1am.

Objections were received from 21 residents who said it could cause increased noise and Derbyshire police objected because it could increase alcohol-related anti-social behaviour.
