BRASS not beer … that’s the message from local police as they take a zero tolerance approach to U18s and alcohol at the upcoming Whit Friday band contests.
They explained on their Facebook page: “Officers are visiting local schools to reinforce this very important message.
“Please have the discussion with your children if they are looking to attend this fabulous event.
“They will be most welcome to come down and enjoy themselves. However we will take action to safeguard our young people if they are under the influence of alcohol or are in possession without age appropriate ID.
“Please keep a keen eye on your drinks stocks in the run up to the event.”
