EREAUT, BAILIFF: On 20th March, 1975, the Licensing Assembly approved the division of the then Golden Sands Hotel, which at that time held licences of the 1st and 3rd Categories.

The Eastern part of the division, which included what had been the hotel and a part of the former Safari Lodge, and which was to continue to be known as the Golden Sands Hotel, was granted a 2nd Category licence.

In compliance with that provision, Drawing 1164/1 was submitted to the Licensing Assembly in June, 1976. That Drawing showed two bars at the Western end of the building, the Captain's Cabin on the ground floor and the Crow's Nest on the first floor.
