Doncaster launches BBN 2015

Doncaster’s Metropolitan Borough Council (DMBC) launched its Best Bar None (BBN) initiative for 2015 this September with a special event for local licensees.

The scheme aims to help local licensees make Doncaster a safe and friendly destination at night, and has resulted in a significant decline in alcohol-related crime in the borough since it launched in 2006. Part of that success has been through the training of over 600 licensees and staff by BBN, with support from HABC in the form of qualifications and learning materials.
