West Bridgford bars educated on combating ASB and drugs

A joint night time economy initiative from Rushcliffe Borough Council and Nottinghamshire Police, is helping to educate bar owners and door staff on drugs and anti-social behaviour in their venues.

An evening of action took place in early June held by officers from both organisations. They listened and engaged with staff at nine bars and restaurants in the town in order to kickstart change.

Premises were visited on Gordon Road, Central Avenue and Bridgford Road, backing up the town’s wider PubWatch scheme.

The same evening a further exercise between the teams monitored any localised anti-social behaviour in conjunction with school and college exams finishing but no formal action was necessary. Engagement was also made with those attending West Bridgford Young People’s Centre.

Taxis were also stopped at random by Police and requested to drive to the Bridgford Road car park where vehicle and licence checks took place from Borough Council officers.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Safety Cllr Rob Inglis said: “West Bridgford is among our great places in the Borough for an evening out and safe for residents and visitors to enjoy some of our great outlets.

“However as with all destinations with a night time economy, businesses need support to identify and combat common issues that a small minority may bring to their premises.

“We had a great proactive response and feedback from staff at all outlets and this initiative made our connections with bar owners even stronger, so they and their customers can be reassured support is on hand should any issues arise over time.”
