Chairman Of Pubwatch Remains In Role Despite Drink-Drive Ban

James Francis

The Chairman of the islands Pubwatch group has remained in his position despite being convicted of drink driving.

The licensee group met yesterday for the first time since James Francis was banned. The issue wasn’t discussed.

The meeting at The Mermaid was poorly attended compared to recent meetings and the group failed to elect a vice chairman or secretary.

The Islands’ new police sergeant, Colin Taylor, addressed landlords and managers during the session at the Mermaid. Members narrowly voted to allow back into pubs a local man barred after he admitted buying and supplying what was, at the time, a so-called legal high.

The man lost his job and was banned from licensed premises for two years after obtaining the substance ‘meow meow’. It has since become an illegal class B drug.

He’ll be allowed back on probation.
