Networking reach our young drinkers

A FACEBOOK campaign is urging young people in North Lincolnshire to think before they drink and be aware of the affects of alcohol on their health and know where to get help.

A series of hard-hitting messages are being posted on Facebook in an attempt to stop people drinking at a young age.

Brigg and Wolds councillor Rob Waltham, cabinet member for adult and children’s services, said: “The campaign will hopefully get the message across that drinking alcohol from a young age causes more damage in the long-run.

“While we can’t stop people drinking, hopefully by making them aware of the harm it causes to their health and the risks they put themselves and others under, it will make them think twice before drinking.

“It is important that young people are aware of the facts.”
