From The Sussex Agricultural Express Friday; 1st. March 1901. Licensing Application Refused;

Mr. Bedford applied on behalf of Henry Woolgar for permission to open the “Jolly Sailors Beer-house”, Newhaven, Sussex at an earlier hour than at present. Mr. Bedford proceed to read the section of the Licensing Act under which the application was made, and pointed out that fishermen and men employed at the boiler houses, who had to get to work before six o’clock, had requested the landlord of the house to apply to the Bench for permission to open earlier, - Applicant said he frequently had application from men who had to go to work before six o’clock for refreshment. Some of the men were engaged at the Cement Works, and had to go considerable distance to work. He should supply hot coffee and tea when so desired, - After short consultation, the Chairman said the Bench could not allow the house to be opened earlier. The application was therefore refused.
