Less than a week to Smokefree England...

Just six days and counting to Smokefree England when virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces become smokefree by law.

As the official website for Smokefree England says, the new measures will ensure a healthier environment, so everyone can socialise, relax, travel, shop and work free from secondhand smoke.

It will also make a visit to the pub much more pleasant!

I remember having a conversation in my local with my Dad before he died in 1997. After fighting through clouds of stinking smoke to get to the bar, I rather boldly suggested that in a few years time, pubs would become 'smoke free'.

My father never smoked a cigarette in his life, but thought smoke-free pubs would never happen.

Making public spaces smoke-free is, in my opinion, a giant leap forward!
