County council want people to be aware of alcohol consumption

Have your say

PEOPLE are being encouraged to think about sensible drinking and how many units they are consuming each week as part of Alcohol Awareness Week.

Statistics show nearly a quarter of Hampshire residents drink above the safe recommended levels of 14 units of alcohol each week.

Councillor Patricia Stallard is Hampshire County Council’s executive member for health and public health.

She said: ‘With so many different drinks, bottles and glass sizes, it’s easy to get confused about how much is too much.’
