Grampian Police along with partners from Aberdeenshire Council and volunteers from Inverbervie will be holding a Disco in the Burgh Hall Inverbervie on Friday 9 December 2011 starting at 7.30pm.
The disco is for young people aged 12 - 17 years. Blue Light is a successful project that started in 1983 and provides discos for young people throughout many locations worldwide, including Scotland and England.
The aim is to provide a safe and fun place to socialise with entertainment, in a relaxed alcohol and drug free environment. The project also aims to develop and encourage better relationships between young people, police, and adult members of the community and to tackle local issues of underage drinking and the wider effect of anti social behaviour and alcohol fuelled crime within the community.
Entry to each disco, which is strictly controlled by Police Officers, will require undertaking a breath test and a search. Anyone failing the breath test will be denied entry and taken home by Police Officers. Stagecoach Bluebird has kindly agreed to allow free travel to and from Inverbervie, to anyone attending the disco, on production of a flyer. Flyers can be found at various locations throughout the coastal villages, including Mearns and Mackie Academy’s and Stonehaven Community centre. Tickets are £2 and can be purchased on the night at the door.
