Music fees cause a racket
COUNCILLORS in Llwchwr have been making a noise about live music fees.
Llwchwr Town Council has been told it needs to pay licence fees of more than £500 for live music played at Llwchwr Welfare Hall.
At a Welfare Hall committee meeting last week the council was told it required a Performing Right Society (PRS) licence to have live music performances in the Welfare Hall.
PRS also assessed the licence fee to cost £510.72, despite the hall being used for charity events.

Clerk Anthony Davies said he was concerned that he thought the figure was excessive.
He said: "Most of the live music played in the hall is for charitable events but PRS assess them at £40 regardless of the fact that it was for charity."
The council was also told PRS was seeking to impose a charge in relation to keep fit and dance classes, neither of which play live music in the hall.
The council has disputed the assessment.
