Sunday meat ban imposed Butcher loses £1000's

Post by GD on Wed 10 Nov 2010, 4:53 pm



BRIDGE butcher Charlie Le Poidevin reckons he has lost £3,000 in takings because of delays in granting him a Sunday trading licence – and is calling for the law to be reviewed.
Mr Le Poidevin (pictured), of Charlie’s Family Butchers, took over the former Johns the Butcher a month ago and applied to St Sampson’s constables for a licence. But it has still not been granted and he said the delay was damaging his business.
‘They said originally it would take about three to four weeks, but two people came last week, asked me to sign a piece of paper and said it could take another two weeks,’ he said.
St Sampson’s senior constable Andy Bichard said that anyone who had applied could telephone the constables to find out what stage the application was at. (from GEP)

He should ask the states for a subsidy, after all they subsidize all the shops in the market, thats the market the states gave to McCauly.

The answer can only be yes as it appears to be a name change only.Some of our officials seem to think it is 1910 not 2010!

About time they scrapped this daft law. Only there to make a few Douzeniers feel self-important.

I think all shops should have one day where they are no open to sell items .i find some shops that are open all hours are getting very untidy and dirty ,give it a day off from trading to give the place a good clean.,here endeth the second lesson according to kats book of advice .
