Scandals Night Club

When Scandals took over the business from  Southern Pride in Norwood High Street residents asked local councillor Jackie Meldrum for help. Although the building backs on to industrial land it does have residential neighbours who want a good night’s sleep and there had been problems in the past. Jackie advised residents to write to Lambeth Council with their concerns about the licence for late night  music, dancing and alcohol.
And last week councillors on Lambeth’s Licensing committee listened to local residents and finally agreed a licence for Scandals on condition that the hours of operation were reduced to closing at  1am on weeknights and 3am on Friday and Saturday nights.
For more information about  Scandals see their web site: http://www.clubscandals.co.uk

Businesses are important to the future of West Norwood and will be welcomed particularly if  they take on empty premises and get on well with their neighbours!
