Gosford RSL – were bought to our attention by a couple of different sources. As a community and family club, they have worked extremely hard to not only follow all R.S.A (Responsible Serving of Alcohol) Legislation, but have gone beyond – including, the banning of ‘double shots’ and intoxication promoting activities. They promote and operate as a community and family friendly venue and do so in an area where other clubs/hotels operate to the contrary. The club received Isabella’s List Category Three Award for ‘Community Responsibility’ and along with a certificate were given three dozen bottles of Alcohol Free Wine – which were well received. The management of the club were very grateful for the award and were appreciative of both our community stand and our efforts. Whilst the Dalgarno Institute continues to champion the option of ‘never having to drink’ (particularly for the under 25 y.o) and advocate for a socially just and responsible society that can do without alcohol, we also feel it important to acknowledge the people who do take positive steps to reduce alcohol consumption and lessen the alcohol profile in our community. If more clubs/pubs did this, there would be reductions in a number of the needless damages done to communities, families and individuals.
