A new licence will help Exe Sailing Club extend a range and time of entertainments at the facility.The club, based at Tornado in Shelley Road, will now enjoy later nights at weekends and an option on up to 15 days per year of extended opening hours. The club, previously operating on a premises certificate, has been able to serve alcohol to members and stage music and entertainments with restricted closing times. The new official licence will extend their leisure remit.Nearby residents had expressed concern over the club's application - for midnight closure each night of the week. The premises' licence would also allow alcohol sales to non-members, as neighbours became wary the club could become a general entertainment venue.Yet the club will continue to restrict non-members' admission under their own rules, which promote a family atmosphere. Children will not be allowed to play in the club's garden, to be extended in capacity from 32 to 80 spaces, after 10pm.East Devon District Council's licensing committee has also limited operations, with entertainment and alcohol sales until midnight only permitted on Fridays, Saturdays, plus 15 dates per year, and a 3am New Year's Eve licence.
