New Venue - Vesta Tilleys in Sunderland


New Amber Taverns venue opens in Sunderland

Phoenix Security provide SIA Licensed Door Supervisors to a new Amber Taverns venue opening in Sunderland city centre.

The former Black Bull has undergone a 1million pound renovation and will re-open as Vesta Tilleys, named after the music hall star, this week.

The firm, which owns 100 pubs across the North, has spent the past few months stripping the High Street West venue to create an Edwardian-themed watering hole.

The pub will be selling cask ciders and real ale including Double Maxim which is brewed in Rainton Meadows.

Around 15-20 jobs have been created by the new pub, which opens to the public tomorrow.

Phoenix Security will be providing SIA Licensed Door Supervisors to manage security at the new venue.

National Counter Terrorism Awareness Week 2014


"The "time is right" for police, security and intelligence agencies to be given more powers to defend the UK, Home Secretary Theresa May has said"

The launch today of National Counter Terrorism Awareness Week indicates quite clearly what an important role all security staff have to play in keeping alert to the threat of terrorism.

Knowing how to report suspicious behaviour and what to do in an emergency is key.

As we approach the busiest time of year it is essential that our teams working in licensed premises are aware of their responsibilities to help keep everybody safe.
