As a wonderful gesture of support for young people, The Queen Charlotte in Andover has kindly offered to open as a ‘Youth Pub’ on Wednesday 15th September.
The move is in response to claims that youths in the town centre need somewhere to go as a way to reduce anti-social behaviour.
The top bar of this friendly pub will be available from 6.30pm to 9.00pm for soft drinks and pub games including the pool table.
If successful it is hoped that the initiative may become a regular occurrence and that other pubs may also follow.
The idea has gained much support with one business – Monopoly Insurance – already offering to provide the cost of 100 pints of soft drinks.
The Queen Charlotte, its publicans, and those residents who have suggested the idea deserve much commendation.
As one local resident has said:
Fantastic!!! Super impressed to see that this business is using their initiative, seriously hoping that it’s a success!
