Vintners in Derry and Strabane have joined forces with the Policing and Community Safety Partnership and Derry City and Strabane District Council to launch the annual beermat campaign to encourage responsible drinking during the St Patrick’s celebrations.

The ‘Turn Over a New Leaf’ campaign will see 20,000 beermats distributed to licensed premises across the City and District as a reminder to make sensible drinking decisions over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The safety message has been issued ahead of one of the busiest days for pubs and hotels in the city centre.
