Alcohol drinking ban is extended

The St Peter Port Sunken Gardens in Guernsey will continue to be an alcohol free zone during the summer of 2010.

The Home Department decided the current ban on drinking in the area should continue until the end of October.

The alcohol free zone was first created in the Sunken Gardens in March 2009 following complaints of anti-social behaviour, litter and graffiti.

Having reviewed the situation, the department said it thought it was appropriate the ban remained in place.

The department has also finalised the plans for the Liberation Day celebrations, from 8-10 May, when drinking will be banned in the main areas of town except in designated areas.

It has also made Victoria Avenue and Les Banques alcohol free during the National League System Cup final match between Guernsey Senior County League and Liverpool County Premier League on 1 May.
