Are you attending the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) 6 Nations Rugby Tournament in Cardiff? If you are, we want you to have a great time and remember the event for the right reasons.
Alun Michael, South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner, said:
“The Drink Less Enjoy More campaign, heading into its third year, has successfully reduced the demand placed on emergency services due to alcohol related violence.
“Sporting events, celebrations and getting together with friends are great ways to experience how diverse and exciting the night time economies of South Wales are. The campaign simply wants to enhance this by providing staff with the resources and support they need, educating the public on the impact alcohol can have and enabling activities to support partner organisations.”
Richard Lewis, Assistant Chief Constable, South Wales Police, said:
“South Wales plays host to many events, sporting fixtures and celebrations. Operationally, we work with local councils and other organisation to ensure safeguarding measures are in place to keep the community safe.
“Our message is clear- we look forward to welcoming you as you visit South Wales, but do not let alcohol ruin your evening. “
The Drink Less Enjoy More campaign has successfully educated the public on the law around the consumption of alcohol, provided resources to train bar staff about their responsibilities, and encouraged people to enjoy their night whilst saying safe.In a survey carried out by Liverpool John Moore University on users of the night time economy throughout South Wales, the number of people who knew it is illegal to purchase alcohol for someone who is clearly drunk increased from 50.3 % to 63.4% between 2015 and 2016 as a direct results of campaign interventions.
