Both pubs are on Main Road in the village.

The chain ran from the door of one pub to the other.

Money was also raised for Victim Support on the night and advice to women was on offer during the event.

“We wanted to do something to raise awareness of the recent spiking in Nottingham and we wanted to do an event that joined us both together as a community within Gedling,” Beccy Webster, told the BBC.

  1. I sense that they detected a bandwagon to jump on. After the publicity on national and local news, the awareness is already raised. It would be more constructive to say what they are doing to improve safety in their own premises.
