  1. I wish wish wish someone would bring back Aqua Libra, I loved it and when I was young and out drinking I frequently chose to have this over alcohol. Gonna google it now, it’ll probably tell me it was alcoholic ha ha.

    1. Hey Ginger Groundhog Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog 🙂 I remember Aqua Libra too! If you find it let me know.

  2. Hiya guys,

    I couldn’t find an official email for you, so hopefully this reaches you. I am a student in Bath who’s set up a brand called Alternative Bath. One of my main motives for this initiative was to give students an opportunity to enjoy Bath creatively without relying on poisoning their bodies with alcohol in order to have fun.

    I personally haven’t drunk any alcohol for nearly 3 years now, as a form of protest, and not that I expect every student to follow suit, it’s still a good opportunity to show students that they can have a great time without it. Some of my events have included a moving silent disco, Dancewalk, through the streets of Bath. And I’m also starting a morning rave workout, with no booze at all.

    I was just wandering if you could support my project in any way, or offer some formal form of recognition or award for the work I’m doing? It would not only help boost my brand, but also would help my grade for my module. Let me know 🙂

    1. Hi Cody Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog! As flattered as I am that you think I am someone of influence my best advice would be to contact some of the big boys in the field such as Alcohol Concern (who have recently merged with Alcohol Research UK) and also consider the Institute of Alcohol Studies (IAS) or James Morris at Alcohol Policy UK. Would be happy to showcase your module when it’s done 🙂 Lou
