All’s ship-shape at Cap’n Senny’s

TWO hundred patrons of Cap’n Senny’s were kept inside the building on Saturday night as 12 police officers with two drugs dogs swooped on the nightspot.

No one was allowed to leave or enter during the unannounced inspection which was part of the Nightsafe regime. Nightsafe is operated under the Pubwatch system which aims to ensure Whitehaven’s night-time economy is safe and being run in a proper manner.

The officers arrived just after midnight, at the club’s busiest time on its busiest night of the week to check for any problems.

Manager Chris Pool was happy to report none were found, no presence of drugs, no under-age drinkers and that all licensing conditions were being complied with.

There were random ID checks on over half the patrons in the popular club, he said, and police dogs searched the dance floor, bar area and toilets.

Said Mr Pool: “We have complied with all licensing requirements and this is a testament to good management – all the work we have done and measures we have put in place to ensure we operate properly.

“It isn’t easy, people do sometimes get in on false IDs. We do have to remain vigilant.”
