Support Barmouth Beach Club started this petition to Gwynedd council Licencing department

Barmouth Beach Club, an accommodation venue with specialist facilities for people with varying abilities and disabilities recently applied for a premises licence to sell alcohol to the residents and their families, friends and/or carers during their stay. This has been met with some local opposition demanding that it be refused on the basis that it was inappropriate for a venue of this nature be allowed to sell alcohol. Local opposition has stated that “ one would think that a nightclub/public house would hardly be conductive to the less able and disabled.” They have also referred to people who have disabilities as ‘handicapped ‘ what age are we living in???According to the Discrimination Act 1995 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability (NI) Order 2005 this is clearly discrimination in line with the above act, not to mention that it is not a club or public house it’s simply accommodation for people with disabilities. Doesn’t most accommodation have a licence to sell alcohol??
At Barmouth Beach Club we believe that everyone should be entitled to have the same opportunity as everyone else in regards to being able to socialise, therefore just because someone has a disability it does not mean they can’t enjoy the same pleasures as other people on holiday, dancing, singing, watching a film and dependant upon disability a drink. The guests, family and the carers alike are all entitled to have a drink. Why should our guests, family and carers be discriminated against like the local opposition suggest they should? Please sign our petition in support of our premises licence and equality for our guests who through no fault of their own suffer daily. Why should they suffer more because of discrimination?
