THINK before you drink.
That's the message from local Street Angels, who will be left to pick up the pieces over the Easter weekend.The volunteer group assists people who are drunken or distressed on nights out in Cleethorpes.
They patrol the streets offering help to anyone in need.
Angel Jackie Fortune said: "We want people to be out there having a good time. But it can often be a fine balance between good times and having too much to drink which can turn into a disaster."
The Street Angels is one of the organisations joining forces this year to encourage revellers to "stay safe" and to "think when they drink" over this year's Easter weekend.
The Safer And Stronger Communities partnership called on revellers to know their limits when it comes to the amount of alcohol they drink.
North East Lincolnshire Council service manager for Safer And Stronger Communities, Spencer Hunt said: "It's traditionally a busy time of the year for pubs and clubs, with people taking advantage of the long weekend.
"Some people can over-do it and this can lead to problems for licensees and door staff as well as the emergency services.
"So we're encouraging everyone to think and drink sensibly over the weekend's celebrations.
"The help offered by Street Angels is proving very popular with revellers and, importantly, they are helping to reduce the number of calls to emergency services."
Geoffrey Barnes, acting director of public health, said people should be aware of how much they drink at home, too.
He said: "Alcohol misuse is one of the major causes of health problems in North East Lincolnshire.
"Binge drinking can be extremely harmful to health and greatly increases the risk of all forms of accidental injury.
"It is also easy to get into a routine of regular drinking which may not be excessive as a one-off, but could be putting your health at risk in the long term.
"Unfortunately, North East Lincolnshire has a high incidence of liver disease, heart disease and some forms of cancer, which are associated with high alcohol consumption over many years.
"Everyone should consider whether their own alcohol consumption is above recommended levels and if it is they should seek to reduce this or seek advice from their GP.
"Drinking above lower- risk guidelines can also impact on people's ability to get a good night's sleep and can easily affect general day-to-day health."
