Cardiff social club licence revoked after ‘serious incidents of crime and disorder’

A social club in Tremorfa has had its licence revoked after a series of criminal incidents in August.

Police licensing officers made the application to review the premises licence of Pengam Moors Social Club after what police described as ”serious incidents of crime and disorder” on August 24.

On the evening of August 24, a 32-year-old man suffered serious injuries after being assaulted. He is currently being treated in hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

A 22-year-old from Splott has been charged with wounding with intent.

In a hearing carried out by Cardiff Council, South Wales Police presented CCTV footage from the club on the same evening showing drug use, inappropriate sexual activity and violence.

Disregard for the law and the licensing objectives has resulted in serious incidents of crime and disorder that will not be tolerated in Cardiff.

The club is enjoyed by a variety of community groups, of all ages, and law-abiding members.

But unfortunately the behaviour and actions of a small group of people has resulted in this action being taken.

The club now has 21 days to appeal the decision.
