Stay safe this Christmas

As Christmas draws near, Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) are encouraging residents to think about their plans in order to stay safe whilst celebrating this year.
Working alongside Thames Vale Police and Aylesbury Pubwatch, AVDC have been promoting the Christmas Party Menu this year, which breaks down all the aspects of a night of Christmas festivities to ensure you have a happy and safe Christmas.
For starters, they suggest you plan your evening before you go out, think about transport by using licensed taxis, make sure you have the fare home and stay with friends. Ensure you mobile phone is fully charged and always eat before you drink.
For mains, they focus on your wellbeing – asking you not to leave drinks unattended or accept them from strangers, look out for each other, never mix drink and drugs and to stay hydrated with water.
For desserts, always use a black cab or private hire cab with yellow plate and door signs to get home safely, ensuring you’re in the right vehicle for the right booking and that the driver is wearing his badge.
The campaign is to get everyone thinking ahead, to ensure they’re not caught out or put into any compromising situations over what should only be a fun and festive time. Pubs and clubs throughout the town are promoting the poster in and out of their premises and using their social media.
Peter Seal, AVDC Licencing Manager, said: “We’ve worked along side Thames Valley Police and Pubwatch to ensure that Aylesbury Vale residents have a happy and safe time this Christmas and wish all residents a very merry time indeed.”
