Burnham hotel staff celebrate achieving licensing qualifications

Staff at a Burnham-On-Sea hotel are celebrating after achieving licensing qualifications.

The Royal Clarence Hotel on Burnham's seafront has seen another two of its supervisors pass a prestigious licensing exam - the (BIIAB Level 2) Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH).

Under the Licensing Act 2003 any sale of alcohol must be made or authorised by a personal licence holder who must hold an accredited qualification such as the APLH.

Paul Chatwin, owner of The Royal Clarence Hotel, said: "The law requires that just one person within each premises is required to study and pass an examination to be awarded their APLH and thereafter apply for a Personal Licence."

"In the interests of public safety, to reduce the impact of anti-social behaviour, and to provide staff with a better understanding of their legal duties when serving alcohol, we took the decision to pay for all of our supervisors to study for the APLH examination."

"We are extremely proud to announce that we now have six staff working within the hotel who have successfully completed the course and have gained the (BIIAB Level 2) Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH)."

"I believe that we are the only premises throughout the South West to have such a large proportion of their staff having taken the course which shows our continued efforts to ensure our customers can relax in the knowledge that staff are trained to look out for potential issues and to ensure illegal under-age purchases are not taking place."
