As a new initiative, every Tuesday starting Tuesday 13th August 2013 Phil Cockcroft, landlord of the Southampton Arms in Winchester Road, Andover, has agreed to open from 6pm for young adults from the age of 13 to 17 only.

No alcoholic drinks will be served on these evenings, though soft drinks and refreshments will be available.

The aim is to give younger people in Andover a place to meet and talk in an informal setting, and the landlord will allow free use of the juke box and pool table on these evenings.

  • what a great idea phil hope all goes well haven’t any that age anymore but bet it will be well used

  • Great Idea, well done Maurice Cleary for getting this of the ground, let us hope you have the same success with the other Land Lords, which you mentioned.

    • To answer your question Lisa, there will be no adults involved, apart from the land lord, or at least that is what was said at a meeting I was invited to, you may come to your own conclusions regarding this, further it was set up by a UKIP member, he ( Maurice Cleary ) intends to pay a visit to the Swallow, Queen Charlotte and the Merlin to ask them if they could do the same for the youths in their areas..
      Which I think is a brillant idea if it works.
      If you require further information then let me know

    • Hi Lisa, you don’t need to worry, we aren’t about to let the kids run riot in a pub, there will be a number of Southampton Arms staff working, myself and Phil included. Maurice Cleary who has organised the whole thing will be there, I believe his wife Pam will be there too.
