Nearly 100 submissions were received by the Hurunui District Licensing Committee ahead of a three-day hearing to decide whether Thirsty Liquor will be allowed to operate in the main street of Amberley.

Amberley School principal Simon Green told the hearing his decile 7 school was vulnerable and he could see the effects of alcohol on the community from a very real perspective.

“We have increasing instances of parents who are under the influence of alcohol when they drop off and collect their children from school,” he said.

“We have even had drunk parents fighting and verbally abusing each other outside the school gate.’’

Read more here. We will post an update on the committee's decision once it has been made.
