Join the White Swan's Fence Petition
Added to this we have a high security outside entrance area incorporating a state of the art photo and id scanning system which all customers attending are photographed and their id checked and recorded on the system, which we find makes people not only feel safer but stops unwanted behaviour on our premises as everybody knows ‘we know’ who they are.
We are currently locked in a seemingly pointless battle with the council who are demanding we lower our fence currently standing at 1.8 meters down to just 1 meter high, this we know would dramatically lower our security as most people can get over such a small fence with very little difficulty.
The homophobic terrorism in Florida played a big part in our decision to erect the fence including the point-of-entry scanning system including professional door staff all nights, and the White Swan was subject to it’s own problems in the past but now no longer thanks to everything we have done to prevent and stop dead any such atrocities.
We have now been able to give our customers bigger and bolder events such as Cybil’s House, TinaWeen,
LGBT Police Events, KlubKids and FlashBack to name but a few.
The White Swan has seen a massive reduction in homophobia and abuse ever since our security improvements and all our customers have commented on how much safer they now feel because of everything we have implemented.
We have petitions on Facebook and our website with a great response and still growing as a way of showing this council the error in their request.
