Ap­peal for less grog at par­ties

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

‘‘Keep the Christ­mas cheers cheer­ful’’ is the mes­sage the Al­co­holic Liquor Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil of New Zealand and ACC have for those at­tend­ing work­place Christ­mas func­tions in the com­ing weeks.

‘‘Christ­mas is a time for cel­e­bra­tion, but let’s not make al­co­hol and get­ting drunk the fo­cus of the cel­e­bra­tions,’’ said coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive Ger­ard Vaughan.

‘‘We are see­ing a trend away from al­co­hol­fo­cused work­place par­ties to more team and fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties for Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions. Fam­ily pic­nics, team ac­tiv­i­ties such as trea­sure hunts or quiz nights, or vis­it­ing lo­cal at­trac­tions are all be­com­ing more pop­u­lar for work­places.’’
