Australian Hotels Association holds discussions with Orange venues

The Australian Hotels Association met with late night traders in Orange yesterday, to discuss issues involving alcohol related violence in licensed venues.

The meeting comes as a great concern, after Orange man Adam Ford was allegedly assaulted in the early hours of Sunday morning, and remains in a critical condition.

AHA NSW Director of Policing and Membership, John Green, says he has “dropped everything” to come to Orange, following the incident.

Christian organisation Fusion Australia will now address today’s meeting of the Orange Liquor Accord, with regard to the city’s pubs and clubs.

Fusion Australia is calling on licensed venues in Orange to trial earlier closing time, in a bid to curb violence.
