DESIGNATED drivers in the area will be able to receive free soft drinks from Wadworth pubs throughout December.
Pubs taking part include the Barge Inn in Seend, the Three Magpies in Seend and the King’s Arms in Melksham. The idea behind the offer is to encourage drivers to stay sober and avoid the temptation to drink and drive over Christmas. It is available to pre-booked Christmas parties and group outings during December.
Wadworth operations manager Rupert Bagnall said, “Many pubs are situated in rural areas and are easier to get to in a car, but they make ideal places for groups of friends to get together and celebrate the festive season.
“In line with our responsible drinking policy we want to ensure that our customers make their way home safely, so we strongly recommend that all groups nominate a designated driver who agrees not to drink alcohol for the evening. We will supply as many soft drinks as the driver wants so that he or she remains sharp and alert for the journey home.
“As we are constantly reminded by the Police and the seasonal television advertisements, drinking and driving can be a lethal combination, and we at Wadworth do not want any of our customers to end up in an accident that could have been avoided.”
To claim the free drinks, simply introduce your nominated driver to the bar staff when you arrive.
