Keep cool and stop things over-heating

As the weather has been good recently I expect a lot of you have been enjoying a pint or two in a sunny beer garden.

There’s nothing better than having a good old chinwag with your mates over a cold drink as you sit out in the sunshine.

But sometimes the heat and the alcohol can go to your head and actions can turn violent.

When you’ve had one too many, your behaviour and judgement can change and what may start out as a slight misunderstanding can quickly escalate.

Just last weekend four people were injured when glasses were thrown in the patio area of The Ashley.

Four people sustained cuts in the incident and we’re appealing for information.

And while I’m asking you to keep tabs on your own drinking, the same goes for your mates.

It’s not until the World Cup kicks off too and during that time pubs screening matches will be open later.

While this gives you the opportunity to watch the matches in Brazil, don’t use it as an excuse to up your alcohol intake.

You will want to see that penalty shoot out or the winning goal scored in extra time and you won’t if you’ve been asked to leave the pub or are slumped in a corner.

I don’t want to sound like a kill joy, as I like to enjoy myself as much as the next person.

But as the weather heats up make sure you keep a cool head so that next 999 call isn’t about you and your drinking.
