School wants ban on drinking near premises

Apparantly some parents do, even on the morning run at 8:30am! Jut heard of it on BBC news, but only link is from DM paper.

So, is this happening near you?! Surely it can't be that common an incident!

Have to say I haven't noticed it at DD'ss school or where I work. Might have to check those water bottles more carefully perhaps

Seriously, its tragic though, no laughing matter.

What hope have the poor dc got being brought up in households like that? sad

There is nothing wrong with a little snifter to set one up for the day.

I have just seen that too Hulababy on Look North! My first thought was to wonder if anyone was talking about it on MN grin

there is already a thread about this: mumsnet.com/Talk/in_the_news/836644-Boozing-on-the-school-run

I knew there had to be a MN thread on it. I only looked for today's posts though, as hadn't heard it on news until today.

Where I live is by no means a deprived area but I've noticed a few parents who often turn up reeking of booze to drop off and pick up their kids. My ex is one of them sad

I've not (yet) seen anyone openly drinking near the school itself; around here they're more likely to be knocking back the wine and gin at home rather than swigging out of cans in the street.
