All night drinking or not, teenage drinking won't go away

ALL NIGHT DRINKING OR NOT, TEENAGE DRINKING WON'T GO AWAY

Dear Ed

Short conversation with a clean well dressed local young teenager.


I saw him looking at his grazed knuckles, so I asked who have you been fighting?

He answered: "Hit some young kid, got put in a cell overnight, I was drunk, didn't know what I was doing."

All night drinking or not, I feel that teenage drinking will not go away. A lot of it was started by the introduction of the alcopops or vodka and lemonade drinks.

VICTORY FOR PETER AFTER A YEAR OF TOIL

 Hawkinge Parish and District Councillor Peter Smith has launched his unique one eighth scale model of HMS Victory at Folkestone Harbour.

The Shepway co-ordinator of the Sea Britain Festival has been constructing the 25ft long model of Nelson's Flagship in the back garden of his Daniels Terrace home in Hawkinge  for nearly a year.


Peter would like to see the ship have a permanent place in the Harbour as a reminder of the town's links with Admiral Lord Nelson.

Trafalgar Weekend to celebrate the bicentenary of the battle takes place on 22 to 23 October.
