Drinking and driving
Members will be aware of the proposed lowering of drink/drive limits in 2014.
We ask members to always be conscious of these limits and to take care when attending Club events.
If you know that you will taste several wines, appoint a designated driver to get you home safely or consider hiring a taxi. If water is provided, feel free to drink this. If not, feel free to ask for water.
