Message from Dot
I hope you have all enjoyed the Summer Break and are looking forward, as l am, to resuming our sessions at the Cumberland and the Millstone.
The Cumberland has become part of a campaign called “Shout Up”. This was set up initially to protect women from harassment in bars throughout Newcastle.
You can find out about the campaign on the “Shout Up” website: https://www.shoutup.org
You can also see posters on the pub walls.
This is a “heads up” to anyone who attends our sessions.
We play in the Cumberland so we need to be aware of and sensitive to what they consider to be appropriate behaviour.
Look forward to seeing you all soon,
What to do if there are any problems
Staff at the Cumberland Arms have been trained to deal with sexual harassment as part of this Campaign.
If you experience or witness sexual harassment, the purpose of this Campaign is to encourage you to alert Bar Staff so that they can deal with the problem promptly and effectively. You do not have to literally “shout” – the point is immediacy of action, not volume :-)
Best wishes and see you soon!
