I am interested to see that some people are objecting to having a tavern in Omokoroa due to concerns about gambling and alcoholism. I feel a tavern would be a good thing if it was also a restaurant. As Omokoroa is growing we need something like this for social gathering. The current boat shed is members only when it comes to buying drinks and from feedback I have received the restaurant struggles to keep up with demand when it comes to timely service.
As a hypnotherapist having a tavern in town does not create alcohol addiction just like selling chocolate in a supermarket doesn’t make everybody obese. I can understand if the people living very close by might be concerned about noise but that can be managed with the current laws we have in place and with a liquor licence comes with the responsibility not to sell any more liquor to somebody who is already drunk.
Just giving another perspective
