WALMER CASTLE AT WESTGATE

Mr. Rultey Mowll applied on behalf of Mr. A. J. Matthews for a final order in respect of some new premises he had erected at Westgate, and for which a provisional grant was made at the last Brewster Sessions.

The notice has been proved.

Mr. E. W. Fry certified that the building had been erected in accordance with the plans to which the Licensing Bench had given assent.

This was granted; and a transfer of the licence of the new house, the “Walmer Castle Hotel,” was made from Mr. A. J. Matthews to Mr. T. Randall, of Malling.
