Pyle and Kenfig Pubwatch support Christmas drink drive campaign
Pyle and Kenfig Pubwatch members have joined forces with their local fire station to raise awareness of the 2014 drink drive campaign.
The Pubwatch members attended the fire station to hold their monthly meeting and were then provided with a multi-agency session - as both fire and police officers presented the informal training. Road Safety Officer Wayne Tucker demonstrated the breathalyser tool and asked one of the members to volunteer to take the test.
Members from all areas within the scheme from the Angel Hotel in Mawdlum, through North Cornelly, Pyle, Cefn Cribrw and Kenfig Hill attended.
Police Community Support Officer Julie Banks said:
“It is important for the community that we all support each other - and bringing the community together at the Fire station was a great opportunity to share information.”
The Pubwatch scheme in Pyle and Kenfig has just finished its first year of operating and it has already worked together on many projects to promote community safety. One project was to design their own beer mats, which advertise the National Pubwatch scheme.
Inspector Darren Grady of the Community Safety Partnership welcomes this collaborative working, he said:
“It is very important that we support our communities to help make them safe. I am very proud of the joint work that has been achieved in this area in such a short time.”
