Minsterley and Pontesbury Community Alcohol Partnership

Community Alcohol Partnerships bring together organisations to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and harm caused by underage drinking through providing youth activities, alcohol education and enforcement.

The Minsterley and Pontesbury Community Alcohol Partnership (M&P-CAP) members are: Shropshire Council, West Mercia Police, the Co-op, Severnside Housing, Mary Webb School, Pontesbury Parish Council and Minsterley Parish Council. As the project develops other agencies or groups may join the partnership.

M& P-CAP is part of a Shropshire wide Community Alcohol Project which is working in four other market Towns in the County, the project was established following Shropshire being awarded two years funding through the Governments Alcohol Fund.

In January 2013 the Partnership has its first monthly meeting, and the partnership is being officially launched on 1st May 2013.Currently the project is working on the following projects:
Challenge 25 training for owners and employees of places which sell alcohol. The training will be given by the Co-Op, the partnerships lead retailer.
Promotion of the project in the Area
Looking at the provision for youth work in the area to provide outreach work on Friday and Saturday nights. Seeking out new ideas and activities for under 18s in the area.
Conducting a youth alcohol perception Survey in Mary Webb School. The outcomes of this survey will highlight local priorities and help provide direction to the project.

The Partnership will be at the Rea Valley Local Produce Market at Minsterley Parish Hall on 12th May and the Church Fete Pontesbury on 8th June 2013. Please come and see us if you would like to talk about the project.
