A PETITION to appeal a Salisbury bar's alcohol licence being stripped has gained more than 400 signatures.

@Home, on Bridge Street, will no longer be able to serve alcohol after Wiltshire Police pulled bar owner Louella Adamson before Wiltshire Council’s licensing committee to defend her venue last week.

In response Louella has issued a petition to appeal the license revocation and extend the bar's opening hours to the same time as surrounding businesses of the same nature.

Within 12 hours of launching the petition online, titled 'Save @Home', it had already received 200 signatures, and has now reached around 470.

Talking about the response to the petition, Louella said: "I wanted to put [the petition] out there to see if the cause was worth fighting for.

"Everybody loves [@Home], it's a community space that has absolutely changed lives.

"I don't know what will happen but it's great to see how people have responded to the petition, people like seeing something different in Salisbury that offers something to do."

Noise complaints and police call outs are what led to the withdrawal of the alcohol license, and Louella said she was "exhausted fighting a fictional cause", adding: "I've never had an incident in my bar, I've never had a problem in my bar."

Going forward @Home will continue hosting non-alcoholic events such as learning languages, salsa classes, and cultural film nights, but Louella also hopes to launch events to replace the former alcohol-including nightlife.

A sober rave is one idea from the bar owner, as they have been "a huge success in other places," and "will make it easier for other people to join in," she added.
