“We know that peaks are taking place in Lancaster and we need to understand that better”
Lancaster University Students Union announcement that it will host confidential discussion groups against peaks on Thursday November 4 and Thursday November 11.
Both events will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Great Hall of Lancaster University.
They will be joined by PC Licensing Officer Andy Taylor of Lancaster Police Force to discuss the management of spikes in Lancaster nightclubs.
The announcement said: “The increasing prevalence of peaks has left many people at risk and the nighttime economy is struggling with how to solve the problem. We know there are peaks in Lancaster and we need to understand that better. To try to improve our understanding, we need to hear from you.
At Instagram, LUSU assured the students, “No personal information will be collected during the focus groups and you are free to leave at any time.”
He stressed that they were “an opportunity to share information with you on peaks and other incidents at licensed locations in Lancaster, in a space where you feel safe”.
The announcement also stated that for those who wish to anonymously share their experiences online, they can email LUSU’s Advocacy and Governance Officer, Chris Cottam at [email protected]
They will be anonymized and transmitted to the police. Or students can email PC Andy Taylor directly at [email protected]
