    Good grief some people are such fuddy duddy's.

    I haven't known alcohol to be at a school fete as such but I have been to town fair's where there has been a bar, a designated area for those who may want to enjoy a drink and I don't see the big deal.
    If you don't want to have a drink then don't! Pretty simple really.

    There's nothing wrong with the parents catching up over a drink and food while the kids play. Quite often in our circle of friends the only chance us parents do get to catch up is at one of our kids parties because we all work and time gets away so we use the opportunity. Noone gets blotto, it's a few drinks, we parents are having a chin wag while our kids are playing. It's usually a great day all round.

    Default Re: Alcohol/Bar at a school Fete? WDYT?

    I think it depends on the school. As I said our school had it and it was no biggy but other schools in our area might have it and every one would be on the ****, roaring drunk and fighting. (which is why our kids don't go to those schools I might add).

    I guess that's where I'll never understand alcohol... Why can't u catch up without alcohol? What's wrong with soft drink, coffee etc? I just personally don't understand why alcohol needs to be in drinks at all....

    In my mind and in my understanding the purpose people drink alcohol at all is to have a good time.. To relax... To have an altered sense of reality... I don't want or need an altered sense of reality

    If you don't drink, then no, you wouldnt understand. Some of us like a tipple, as is our legal right. Why SHOULD I catch up without alcohol? To make the non drinkers feel better? If you don't want a drink, or your kids near it, then feel free to take a few steps away from the designated drinking area and let the rest of us live in unjudged peace.

    Then quite simply, don't drink.
