Worthing Late Night Partnership (LNP) in collaboration with Adur & Worthing’s Safer Communities Partnership held a late night event in Worthing Town Centre on 18th November, to end 2017s Alcohol Awareness Week with support of local Worthing businesses and public services.
The ‘Getting Home Safely’ event was supported by #Worthing’s night time economy of nightclubs and late night venues, promoting Worthing as a safe place to socialise, whilst introducing the various local initiatives and charities that are available to the public, who actively help, often voluntarily, to keep everybody safe.
In attendance at South Street Square were: West Sussex Fire & Rescue, Western Sussex Hospital Sexual Health Team & Alcohol Specialist Nurse, Sussex Police, Chair of the LNP-Councillor Diane
Guest, Councillor Edward Crouch, Street Pastors, Adur & Worthing Councils Communities & Wellbeing and Licencing Team, Bar Ten; One Club and Vintage Bar Box who provided non-alcoholic mocktails from their horsebox bar to the public to encourage safer drinking.
Event organisers Adur & Worthing Councils, Communities and Wellbeing Manager, Rhian Francis said
“as we lead up to the festive period, it is important the local community feel safe whilst enjoying the night time venues that Worthing has to offer. We thank everyone who was involved in this event for their support, and the hard work they continue to provide to help make our local community feel safe at night.”
