Chatham News, Friday 10 February 1939.

A "COLD WEATHER" DRINK.

An unsuccessful application was made by Mr. M. V. Mackey, an behalf of Mr. William Sargent, for a full "on" licence for the "Edinburgh Castle," High-street, Northfleet. Mr. Mackey maintained that there were no other licensed premises within half a mile radius, and that the house was in the centre of the town. A good deal of trade came from the new Bevan's Works.

Stressing the need for the wine licence, Mr. Mackey said. "In cold weather people don't drink so much beer—they prefer wine I am told that gin-and-lime is a very good drink for keeping warm—some people drink it for slimming."

Mr. Macley explained that when visiting darts teams came to the house, many players brought their wives, who were very disappointed when they found there was no wine.

The licensee (Mr. Sargent) said. "Yes, darts is becoming very popular with the ladies now."

Mr. T. Church (opposing):- Is it not a fact that the "India Arms" are nearer to Bevan's Works than your house?

Mr. Sargent:- Yes, it is too near—the men might be seen!

Opposing on behalf of three other houses, Mr. H. Tuffee claimed that trade in that part of Northfleet was going down.

The application was refused.
