A public house in Aberaeron has been issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £1,000 for breaching the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No.4) (Wales) Regulations 2020.

The Black Lion public house in Aberaeron was seen by officers from the Public Protection Team to have been supplying alcohol and remaining open when prohibited under the Regulations.

The Fixed Penalty Notice was issued on 9 December 2020 by Ceredigion County Council. The licensee may discharge liability to conviction for the offence if the penalty is paid within 28 days.

The authority acknowledges the sacrifices made by the majority of Ceredigion licensed premises in order to comply with the coronavirus restrictions.  Action will be taken against premises where they are found to be flouting the requirement under the Regulations to close and not serve alcohol.
