Greenwich pub landlords spoken to after opening for outside drinks
Greenwich police have stated they are talking to a couple of landlords in Greenwich after pubs opened in recent days for outside drinks.
Police stated this morning “We are aware that a couple of pubs may have been open over the past couple of days in Greenwich. Details have been passed on to our Licensing Sgt & Royal Greenwich. Their Landlords will be spoken to about potential breeches.”
The Plume of Feathers placed markers outside so people could keep apart while the Greenwich Tavern sold drinks from a window to those queuing.
Guidance does seem odd. People are expected to be able to go to garden centres next week. Is that essential? Looking at images of the pubs it doesn’t appear that different to people queuing at shops and takeaways.
One continual issue appears to be lack of consistency in what is permitted or not.
People in parks are not allowed to sit down yet in some town centres there’s no space to avoid people when walking to shops due to lack of movement on creating sufficient space.
