(Statewide Labour Hire) From our President, Adrian Lipscombe: Club Unity, Direction and Goals.

As Club President, it is my duty to ensure that our direction is visible, promoted and that all Albion Hotel members are engaged. Our 11 football teams and 2 cricket teams that we put on the park each week are at the core of any direction the Club takes. As a volunteer and amateur Club, the Committee will provide all members the resources to From the President promote and achieve: • Enjoyment; • Player development and Progression • Success both on and off the field; • Stability; • Commitment; • Passion; • Discipline and respect; • Integration between all age groups; • Structure; • Progression to higher standards in all areas. Wyndham Denture Our Club is always going to be in a constant state of change. People come and go depending on their circumstances in life.

RUSSO PAVING & Wayne Nott Liquor Licence, Membership Tickets & RSA Course Our liquor licence was granted on May 3 & includes conditions that were generally expected. It is good from both the social & fundraising aspects for the club to have the renewable limited licence as it lawfully allows us to sell liquor to members & guests for consumption on the premises. Statewide Water Cartage Briefly the conditions/ limitations include: (Statewide Labour Hire) a) Days & hours We can only trade on 4 days of the week, Thu to Sun. There are specific hours for each of those 4 days & we must adhere to those. b) Amenity We are not to cause or permit undue detriment to the amenity of the area during or immediately after trading hours. This refers primarily to noise & includes music/ entertainment noise levels, which are set by a Albion Hotel State Environment Protection Policy, from any function as well as traffic, etc when leaving the school site. c) Special Condition No liquor is to be supplied during, or for 30 minutes after, any match or training session involving persons under 18 years of age. The licence does allow the club to hold pre-booked non-member functions (if it so decides) but again only within the days & hours specified. The licence also has a Section 120(2)(e) Approval:— Persons under the age of 18 years are permitted on the licensed club premises other than in the company of a responsible adult in relation to preparation for and participation in sporting events only during the trading hours (as specified in the licence).

  14. 14. Old Westbourne AFC Club Newsletter www.oldwestbourneafc.com.au (Laverton) Liquor Licence (cont’d) Some repercussions from the licence are: * We need to ensure we strictly comply with the licence & alcohol consumption regulations as the licence has to be renewed each 12 months, (expiry Dec 31 each year), & we do not want any reported “incidents”. Also we have a duty of care to our members & to further develop & maintain our family friendly culture. * “Incident” could be excessive alcohol, under age persons, noise during &/or after RUSSO PAVING functions, etc. Note: Good Sports ask for all incidents, regardless of whether & Wayne Nott alcohol related or not, to be listed in the Incident Register. * We can only serve & sell to members & their guests for consumption on the premises. That means there is no take-away & no “travellers”. * “On premise” is the area within the walls upstairs (the licensed area) so no drinks are to be taken outside on the balconies. Note: Penalty notices are displayed at the Bar & currently range from over $6,000 for supply to a minor up to over $13,000 regarding intoxication to both nominee/ Statewide Water licensee & drinker.
