Beers for Bales

We are all aware of the current issues our farmers are facing across the country with one of the worst droughts some of even the most senior farmers have ever experienced. Without our farmers we don’t have the produce to do what we do best, they need our support and most of the ones in need will not ask for help, in fact when you have an issue in the bush, you go to the local pub to find a solution. We need to take the city pubs to the bush and provide part of the solution!

The Accord Executives have discussed ways to show support and the obvious and only way for us is by monetary donation. We call it ”Beers for Bales”

We have decided to do this in two ways and set a goal of raising $30,000 from CNLA venues.

  1. The first will be by sponsoring 2 x semi trailers full of hay to be transported to a rural area within 900km. This will be a large scale donation to the tune of $19,000 paid direct to Rural Aid by the Executive on behalf of the members, out of currently held accord funds.
  2. This leaves a balance of $11,000. To get to the total goal of $30,000 we have asked our members to join us in a fund raising exercise . We have registered the accord as a supporter of Rural Aid ”buy a bale” see following link  www.buyabale.com.au/donate/?supporter_id=40631 

Our members are open to raise the funds in a manner that suits their business, whether its a donation of 50c for every schooner sold, donation tins on the bar, a $1 from every door charge or staff donating their tips.

For venues that would like to get involved or more information please contact citynorthliquoraccord@gmail.com

Ask For Angela Campaign

Safety and feeling safe are critical to a successful night time economy. In the past two years reports of sexual offences and sexual assault have increased in Sydney. This is a complex issue that requires a partnership approach to reduce risk and prevent crime. NSW Police, Sydney City in partnership with Australian Hotels Association, City of Sydney and the E-Safety Commission invite you to participate in the Ask for Angela Campaign in the Sydney Area Command. The Ask for Angela campaign encourages people who are uncomfortable or unsafe in a licensed premises to discreetly ask staff for help by ‘Asking for Angela’– a phrase aimed at alerting bar staff to help so they can help defuse the situation. Pioneered in the UK the campaign has been internationally recognised as a successful intervention for reducing sexual violence.

Licensed premises within Sydney City Police Area Command are invited to participate in the campaign by;

  • Displaying posters and other materials at your premises
  • Training staff in how to respond to requests for assistance/ issues
  • Providing feedback on the campaign

All participating venues will be required to complete the training prior to displaying posters. There are two training options available face-to-face (train the trainer) and self-directed training. All venues will be requested to participate in an online evaluation so we can measure the reach and success of the campaign.

Training Options
1. Face to Face- Train the Trainer (Recommended)

An intensive 2hr training for bar managers or their delegates to undertake to support adults who are vulnerable, feeling unsafe or at risk of sexual harassment or assault. Designed to provide the skills and tools for attendees to deliver the training to their colleagues and team members.
