Alcohol costing the North East over £1bn each year
By The Journal - 17th January 2014


Colin Shevills, Director of Balance, North East Alcohol Office

Alcohol is costing the North East around £1.1bn each year and resulting in almost half a million alcohol-related sick days each year in the region, new figures show.

Research by the regional alcohol lobbying group Balance has brought together the cost of alcohol to the workplace (£440m), the NHS (£264m), alcohol-related crime (£296m) and money spent by social services (£97m).

Colin Shevills, director at Balance, said: “We’ve seen a noticeable increase in the cost to the workplace and the wider economy, and this is in addition to the millions of pounds that continue to burden our health service, our police forces and our communities. Alcohol truly is affecting every aspect of our society. This can’t continue.

“Cheap alcohol that is too available and too heavily promoted is a fundamental factor in the damage we see and more needs to be done to reduce the alcohol harm that the region is forced to deal with on a daily basis.

“The region’s three police forces, the health community, publicans and the majority of the public here in the North East support a minimum unit price for alcohol.

“A minimum unit price will save thousands of lives, reduce hospital admissions, drastically cutting crime and save hundreds of thousands of working days lost through absenteeism.

“As the evidence base continues to grow, we need Government to put it back on the agenda to form part of a package of measures which will tackle alcohol on a national, regional and local level.”

On a national scale, alcohol misuse costs society £21.3bn a year.

I bet all those figures have been plucked out of thin air.

The 'costs to economy' of all these sinful habbits must be greater than the economy itself. Alcohol costs tens of billions. Obesity costs tens of billions. Tobacco costs tens of billions. Blah blah blah.


(Sorry for being OT, but a quick Google gave the following 'costs to economy' - Violent Crime £124bn, Cyber Crime £27bnm, business meetings £26bn)

These reports also never mention the benefits in tax revenue, employment, expenditure in the local area, etc.

Maximo Park and Mordue brew up interest in new album Too Much Information

From yesterday's Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/...rew-up-6521400

Maximo Park and Mordue brew up interest in new album Too Much Information
By Michael Brown - 17th January 2014


Members of Maximo Park visit Mordue Brewery in North Shields to sample their collaboration beer Maximo No. 5

Rock band Maximo Park is hoping to stir up interest in their latest album by creating a beer with Tyneside brewery.

The Newcastle quintet, whose new disc Too Much Information hits shelves on February 3, have teamed up with Mordue Brewery in North Shields for the American-style amber ale.

“To celebrate the release of our fifth album we wanted to create a unique Maximo Park beer.

“And, in a flash of inspiration, we decided at once to call it ‘No. 5’ and make it 5% ABV,” said drummer Tom English.

A spokesman for the band, which formed in Newcastle in 2000, said the musicians were “keen imbibers of ale” and that they were looking to ensure that the brew that carried their name was “no blurred alcopop”. “We were asked by them to do a beer to coincide with their fifth album,” said Mordue’s director of operations Matthew Fawson.

“They came across and tried various different types of beer, and decided on a slightly ambery, 5% ABV, hoppy beer, which we’re calling Maximo No. 5.

“It’s going to go into bottles and casks – though probably more bottles, as they’re easier to send around the country.

“And the band have been finalising the bottle label and pump clip designs.”

Available in limited quantities, the beer will be stocked at venues in Belfast, Portsmouth, Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool, Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester, Norwich, Oxford and London, as well as Newcastle’s O2 Academy, on the band’s forthcoming UK tour.

The cask version will also be supplied to pubs in the towns and cities the band are visiting. If fans cannot make it to the gigs or pubs then the bottled version will also be available from the band’s website, www.maximopark.com , and brewer’s website, www.morduebrewery.com

Since starting out, the band – which is named after Máximo Gómez Park in Little Havana, Miami – have recorded five studio albums.

The first, A Certain Trigger, sold over 300,000 copies and was nominated for the Mercury Prize in July 2005.

Our Earthly Pleasures followed in April 2007, then their third album, the Los Angeles recorded Quicken the Heart in 2009.

The fourth album, The National Health, came out in June 2012, with NME rating it 8 out of 10 and saying that it was “a fully ticked-off shopping list of everything that’s unashamedly ace about this band”.

New Party Location?

Was having a wander around the Oxford Galleries the other day and decided to take a walk on the 'sky walkways' from the Premier Inn Hotel into Queens Square.

Happened upon the scene of a Cuca drinking session, looking it up, Cuca is an Angolan beer - never heard of it before.

That s a regular run for me and it's certainly home to a number of a'hem characters. The empties are more usually Frosty Jacks - vintners and victuallers to the down and out. It also usually has a charming aroma of.... ammonia.

Thought it's a shorter walk home Mrs NP refuses to go that way alone.

BTW was minded to ask a question about it a while ago - what was the nightclub there and where was the entrance - at your bottles or towards the staircase?

Yes, makes the un restored Duke of Wellington bog [or the Head of Steam's for that matter] seem as clean and fresh smelling as an operating theatre. A living aromatic temple to the Haber-Bosch process.

It was called "Madisons" for most of its life, owned and operated by Tony Zivinaris, along with similar clubs in Teesside; the smaller club at the north end of the building (though not fully disconnected) was known as "Maceys".

The entrance was about two thirds of the way along the northern path which branches off the New Bridge Street walkway between the hotel and the nightclub. The hotel also had a reception desk on that walkway.

It is a massive unit, with several bars, and I'd guess that its capacity would easily have exceeded 600.

They wonder why the public doesn't buy their newspapers when they regurgitate every press release from vested interests without question. Where is this "cheap alcohol" they keep going on about? I can't find it. I'm surprised they missed the old "cheaper than bottled water" lie too. As for "the majority of the public here in the North East support a minimum unit price for alcohol" are the turkeys really voting for Christmas? The Journal lets this pass despite their own poll of readers back in October:

£250,000 investment in Newcastle pub refurbishment

From today's Journal Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.thejournal.co.uk/business...shment-6527751

Will always be the City Tavern to me

£250,000 investment in Newcastle pub refurbishment
By Robert Gibson - 20th January 2014


Entrepreneur David King outside the LYH pub Newcastle, which is currently being refurbished

Work has begun on a £250,000 refurbishment of a historic Newcastle pub, now in the hands of the man behind the likes of Barluga and Perdu.

Heineken-owned Star Pubs & Bars, and lessees Bar Hound, are jointly investing the funds in transforming LYH, off Northumberland Street, into a landmark food-led bar and open kitchen.

The venue, which will reopen at the beginning of March, will be renamed City Tavern – its original title when the building became a bar back in 1971.

Those behind the refurbishment say the new look will be light and airy with the emphasis on style and comfort.

Decor, meanwhile, will reflect a traditional urban look with sumptuous fixtures and fittings, while seating areas will be reconfigured to provide a mix of fixed seating and cosy booths, they added.

City Tavern is the first site for Bar Hound which, as well as running bars, is a licensed trade and leisure design company founded by North East entrepreneur David King, who sold his previous leisure business, Fluid Group, in 2013.

Fluid ran Newcastle city centre coffee houses, gastro-pubs and bars, such as Barluga, Central Bean, Perdu and Fluid Bar.

Star Pubs & Bars, with Bar Hound, take over LYH from the Head of Steam pub group, which sold the rest of its portfolio to Camerons Brewery last year.

In recent months, it has been in the hands of a temporary management company.

King said: “Situated right in the heart of Newcastle, and with capacity for 450 people, this multi-level venue is going to be a great destination for people to meet for excellent coffee and cask ale and to enjoy some of the best locally-sourced home-cooked food in the city. As well as a place that people will want to eat and drink in it will be a showcase for Bar Hound’s design expertise.”

Usual sloppy writing, not the man behind... it's the many who's company designed.....

FWIW star is Heineken's tenancy side.

I assume that the keys were given back to them by Head of Steam who used to operate this - perhaps as part of the Cameron's takeover.

A pub trading since 1971 is 'historic'? I wonder how The Journal would describe Ye Olde Trillians, which first opened nearby a couple of years earlier.

It looks like Pasqualinos will be rebranded Dat Bar. The guys who did the branding and the interior graphics of Njne Bar coffee are helping with this too. "Craft beers, sour dough pizzas and the best burgers in the world."

Opening next month.
