Drink re­spon­si­bly when partying

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - SE­NIOR SERGEANT JA­SON HEN­DER­SON

We had a busy week­end with al­co­hol fu­elled disor­der and po­lice at­tended sev­eral in­ci­dents across the town.

The in­ci­dents mainly in­volved peo­ple at par­ties in heav­ily in­tox­i­cated states.

When you are drink­ing re­mem­ber to keep in mind how much you are con­sum­ing so that it doesn’t lead to poor de­ci­sion mak­ing.

Hosts also need to be aware of their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and look af­ter those at­tend­ing their par­ties.

‘‘There were 14 re­ports of fam­ily vi­o­lence in­ci­dents over the week.’’

Pro­vide food and non­al­co­holic drinks and if some­one is start­ing to get car­ried away have a word with them and tell them to pull their head in.

If you are hav­ing a party let us know as we are more than happy to of­fer ad­vice around how to or­gan­ise a re­spon­si­ble event.
