The cricket club have been asked to change their licensing hours to avoid an objection from South Yorkshire Police

The club asked to serve alcohol until 11 p.m. during the annual bonfire and fireworks display used as the club’s main fundraising night.

In the published report, an objection remains between Barnby Dun and Kirk Sandall Parish Council regarding “one or more” of the four licensing purposes.

These are the prevention of crime and disorder, public nuisance, the maintenance of public safety and the protection of children from harm.

The full reasons for the objection have not been published by Doncaster Council.

The full application will be heard by councilors at an upcoming meeting at the municipal council office in Waterdale.

South Yorkshire Police have also asked for the Challenge 25 program to work, including a denial log, signage and keeping staff training records.

Officers have also requested a CCTV system which must be installed, maintained and used at all times while the premises are open.

CCTV footage is to be stored for 30 days and police and authorized council officers will have access to the footage for purposes related to the “prevention and detection of crime and disorder”.

A club spokesperson said: “The annual community bonfire and fireworks display takes place at the Sports Ground, and we would like to be able to sell alcohol until 11pm at this event.

“This annual event is a key fundraising activity for the Barnby Dun & Kirk Sandall Sports Association, which serves to provide and improve sports facilities for the community.

“From time to time the club will hold a fundraising gala, usually during the late autumn bank holiday and refreshments would be sold to members of the public attending the gala.”
