North Lincolnshire Council announces: "Revellers in Scunthorpe who need help or are taken ill over the New Year will again be offered assistance at a temporary Safe Haven in the town centre."
North Lincolnshire's Coun Darrell Barkworth, from Scunthorpe, said: "This is a fantastic initiative aimed at helping pub and club goers in need over the Christmas and New Year period. It's proved a success in the past and I'm pleased that we are able to offer this vital service once more."
Very commendable indeed.
And those revellers in need in Brigg.....?

'.....I've never heard of getting over-intoxicated as 'taken ill' before....
......'feeling like death' the next morning,ok, - but 'taken ill' makes it sound like a mild case of the wind!

We don't need a 'Safe Haven' in Brigg - we've got them already - Black Bull, The Brit, White Horse to name a few.

Anyway, the over-riding rule about Brigg is that if anyone is... 'taken ill', they still need to buy a round before being allowed to crawl off.

If you can't take it - lay off the sherbert. The 'safe haven' should be our own responsibility.

HAPPY (Soberish) NEW YEAR FOR 2011
