Raynes Park Vale FC is refused Licence

Update 25 June 2021 - Licence Application Refused

We were pleased to hear that this licence application has been refused. Our Association was delighted to participate in the amazing campaign to oppose the granting of the application for a public alcohol licence which would have disrupted the lives of so many residents living near the Raynes Park Vale Football Club. The club of course already has a perfectly adequate licence for its own events and we wish it well in its sporting endeavours.

As Chair of the Residents’ Association (which has no political party affiliations and seeks to support all residents) I was pleased to speak in your support at the council licensing sub-committee meeting on 17th June.

 I was impressed by the imaginative campaign and by the residents’ appointment of such an accomplished barrister. 

John Elvidge, Chairman, RPWBRA
