A GROUP set up to oversee Colchester's night time economy has been relaunched.
Its aim is to ensure Colchester has a safe and enjoyable night time economy by introducing a number of schemes which focus on reducing alcohol-related crime.
John Valerkou, Pub Watch charman, said: "I am looking forward to working with other licensees and partner agencies.
“This group is a positive move forward.”
Town centre licensing Sgt Sue Richardson, of Essex Police, said: "Police officers in Colchester are very pleased to be involved with Pub Watch and already have several initiatives in the pipeline to support a reduction in alcohol related crime.”
