V club: Richard Carr's teenage son was licence holder
7:00pm Friday 8th March 2013 in News
Until July 26, 2012, V Bar (the former church) and Hamptons/Viper (the former church hall) operated under two separate licences.
James Beedham, a long-time business associate of Richard Carr, was the premises licence holder for V Bar from October 2009 until May 10, 2012, when the licence was transferred to Ace of Clubs Ltd.
On July 26, 2012, an application was made for a new premises licence to incorporate both the church and the hall into a single licence.
The licence holders were Vee Asset Ltd.
On December 20, 2012, there was an application to transfer the premises licence to Jacob Richard Carr, the 18-year-old son of Richard Carr.
Mr Carr said this was because his son is the beneficiary of a trust that injected some money into the business.
He said his girlfriend bought the business from Jim Beedham and the trust provided a cash injection.
On February 26 this year, there was another application to transfer the premises licence to Gary Bennetton, the owner of the Orange Rooms, although the police are believed to be objecting to the transfer.
