The Metropolitan Police has requested the Licensing Authority to reduce the license of opening late hours of The joiners Arms. Instead of closing at 4pm on Friday & Saturday, 3pm on Thursday and 2pm the rest of the days the Joiners arms will be forced to close at 12:30 which would lead to the closure and bankruptcy of the Joiners. Many workers would also lose their job and we all going to lose one of the most genuine places of East London.
Please help us to sign against these restrictions, which will be reviewed the 17th of October. We have no much time and we need to as much support as possible.
Everyone relates Joiners with a nightclub but Joiners is much more than that. Joiners have been always supporting many different artists, diversity, sport and specially freedom.
It is also an example for other business paying the workers the 'London Living Wage'. It has been open in Tower Hamlets during 15 years fighting to keep open for long time. Since the renovation of Shoreditch its getting hard to keep the license, and The Joiners Arms have taken all the measures requested by the police and the council. This is the reason why the joiners had to charge a fee for the entrance, made a smoking area, encourage our customer to leave the entrance quietly, not allowing people to take drinks out, we recently changed all the glasses for plastic cups and we installed a new the CCTV to avoid and register every incidents.
Unfortunately, if Joiners has to close at 12:30, we all know that it would lead to the end of the Joiners.
It is really sad that this could happen. For this reason we ask you to sign the petition not matter where you are or live.
If you have ever have fun and the joiners and you consider that other people should also keep enjoying it, please take a few second to sign.
Thanks for you attention, The Joiners Arms.
Life, Love & Liberty.
