The Golden Bee, in Stratford-upon-Avon, was the launch venue for a campaign by Warwickshire Drugs and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT).

The campaign in Stratford-upon-Avon, entitled ‘It’s not fine to mix a pint with a line’, is aimed at making pub-goers aware of the dangerous effects of mixing alcohol with cocaine.

The message is communicated with a poster campaign, in pubs and clubs across the town, including The Golden Bee.

Louise Denton, from Warwickshire DAAT, said: “We know that the mix of alcohol and cocaine substantially increases the risk of side-effects from the drugs. “People who mix alcohol and drugs in this way are putting their health in serious jeopardy by increasing the risk of sudden death, stroke, heart attack, liver damage and depression.

“We hope that people on nights out will bear these consequences in mind and take steps to stay in control and out of harm’s way.”

The pub’s duty manager, Kerry Reynolds, added: “We are really pleased to be involved in this campaign. We have a zero-tolerance policy towards drugs – and the posters help to convey this message clearly.”
