A7(a). Community Actions to Tackle Alcohol Harms
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 24 April, 2015
Please describe how you have supported local community activity to tackle alcohol's social and health harms, over the last year (2000 characters limit):
1. Our managers are encouraged to become actively involved and participate in Pub Watch/Town Watch etc wherever one has been set up. Further support is provided by the company's membership of the British Beer and Pub Association [BBPA].
2. Wherever there is a Best Bar None Scheme it is company policy that our pub managers enter the scheme. We support 'Purple Flag' via our membership of the BBPA in those areas that have applied for or obtained 'Purple Flag' although very few of the areas in which we operate have this accreditation.
3. We have participated in Community Alcohol Partnerships (CAPS) and will do so again when invited to. Whenever a Business Improvement District (BID) is proposed company policy now dictates that we vote in favour. Closer participation is via our membership of the BBPA.
4. From a corporate perspective, we actively support the BBPA in its community based activities, with a number of senior managers being involved in various BBPA committees. If asked, we also try to participate in multi-disciplinary forums looking at alcohol and its interaction with health and behaviour.
