Nightclub aiming to keep pole position
A PENZANCE nightclub ranked as being the best in Cornwall and the second best in the UK in 2013 in terms of promoting best practice in licensed premises had the honour of launching next year's scheme.
Cornwall councillors, senior police officers and other licensees joined staff from Sound nightclub at the launch of the Best Bar None 2014 scheme which promotes the responsible management and operation of alcohol-licensed premises.
Manager Robert Matthews said he was "proud" to be hosting the launch event.
"It is a great scheme and we are definitely trying to be the best in Cornwall again in 2014," he said.

"There's nothing better than being known as the best in your field and I'm very grateful for the hard work of Laura, Charlie and head doorman Tufty in helping to implement the scheme."
Mr Matthews says that entering into the Best Bar None scheme "definitely makes you up your game and helps improve safety and the experience of visiting licensed premises for customers".
"Everything has to be recorded properly. If you say in your log book that staff member X has visited the men's and ladies' toilets every 15 minutes from 11pm on, then the inspectors will ask to see CCTV footage of those times to check that those visits have actually been made.
"There is no fudging the information that you give the scheme."
