County people challenged to sign up for Dry January

People across the county are being challenged to stop drinking for 31 days and sign up to Dry January 2015.

As well as improving your health and well-being, evidence from Alcohol Concern shows that six months after completing a Dry January, participants not only drink less frequently and less per drinking day, but they are also getting drunk less.

Dry January is being backed by Northamptonshire County Council and Northamptonshire Police, with both organisations encouraging their staff to take part. County council cabinet member for public health and well-being Cllr Robin Brown has said he’ll be taking part as he wants to improve his own health and well-being.
