ROCHESTER & CHATHAM JOURNAL. ACCIDENT.

On Boxing Day Mr. George Jarrett, landlord of the "Ship Inn," Upnor, whilst out walking slipped and fractured his leg.

 

Chatham News, Friday 10 February 1939.

"THE SHIP," UPNOR.

The Magistrates refused an application by Mr. M. V. Mackey on behalf of the licensee of "The Ship," Upnor, for an "on" beer, wine and spirits licence. The house has at present an "on" beer and wine licence, the licensee being Mr. Charles Enoch Allman.

Mr. Mackey said there was only one other licensed house within the quarter mile area, namely the "Pier Inn." The licensee at "The Ship," he said, had greatly increased the trade since he had been there. There were now attached to the house the Rochester Cruising Club, the Essex Yacht Club, and the Floboat Canoe Club.

"This is a summer area, particularly with regard to yachtsmen," said Mr. Mackey, "and the licensee has been increasingly asked to supply spirits at that time."

Mr Mackey submitted a petition containing 145 signatures, asking for the extended licence.

For the licensee of the "Pier Inn," James Wadhams, Mr. H. N. Grimwade (solicitor), submitted that the "Pier" was only sixty yards away and had a full licence. In Lower Upnor, moreover, there were only 33 dwelling-houses, and the total inhabitants did not exceed 100. To create another full licence in that area, he suggested, would be to create a redundancy.

Giving evidence, Mr. Wadhams said that the people who came to Upnor during the summer season did not require spirits, and the Upnor trade was solely a summer trade.
