A Section 34 Dispersal Order has been authorised by Inspector 3330 Croucher around The Bounty Public House, Cockmarsh, Bourne End from 12pm Saturday 4th July until 12pm Monday 6th July. This is to prevent anti-social behaviour after recent reports of public disorder in the area. A Section 34 Order allows Police Officers and PCSO's to issue tickets to those suspected of committing anti-social behaviour and requires them to leave the area, or face being arrested. Please report any issues to 101 or 999 in an emergency, quoting reference number 629 30/06/2020.

While I think it was arguably 'brave' of the Bounty to open ahead of the official timeframe for pubs, I do hope this issue can be resolved amicably

Firstly while it is entirely possible that there was public disorder around the Bounty in the last few weeks, I've not seen any posts here suggesting that anyone observed it, and certainly I have been in the area most weekends recently and the conduct of pub attendees seemed peaceful and well-behaved. Nor has the Bounty been historically associated with disorder as far as I am aware - I've never seen anyone commenting here on that.

I do understand that it was apparently considered necessary by the authorities to prevent people from congregating in the pub garden area and that this will inevitably have caused overspill onto the towpath - the Bounty staff were proactive in requesting that patrons immediately leave the area with their takeaway drinks and had staff monitoring at all times.

I do trust that if there is a police presence there this weekend that both the public and the police will behave responsibly and that this issue will blow over in due course.

Is the subject matter of this post accurate? Because it is entitled 'The Bounty' it may be erroneously assumed that the order applies only to the pub and does not include the whole of the Cockmarsh area.

According the Bucks Free Press when referring to the dispersal order:

'It comes after a string of complaints from Bourne End residents about large groups of people gathering at the river's edge during the hot weather.

There have been fears over a lack of social distancing and litter being left behind in the fields.

Residents have complained on social media of up to 200 people gathering and leaving behind bottles and laughing gas canisters and were spotted out in the area clearing up behind them'.

This behaviour has little to do with the pub in Cockmarsh. Reports of anti-social behaviour and fears about broken glass have been reported from some weeks ago during the very hot weather, before the pub was open at all.
