Conversion of pub into new Co-op store could depend on alcohol licence

The former Mowbray Arms at Epworth looks set to become the latest local pub to be turned into a Co-op convenience store.
But the redevelopment could depend on a bid for an alcohol licence.
The Manchester-based Co-operative Food Group is currently seeking approval to sell alcohol on the site from 7am to 11pm seven day a week.
Objectors have been given until January 15 to make their views known in writing to North Lincolnshire Council.
The plans for the Mulberry Arms as submitted to North Lincolnshire Council.
A Co-op spokesman said: “Epworth is an area we are looking at along with locations throughout Lincolnshire.
“But we cannot comment on specific sites at this stage.”
The Arms, named after William De Mowbray, one of the barons who forced King John to sign the Magna Carta, was once the home of the Epworth Folk Club.
