Hi Gavin,

I retired just over a year ago
Before this I worked for over 4 years in the Colchester area. I worked across a number of clubs (some small venues 2-3 team, some large venues (10-14 team).
I used to work alongside Mark (who has not posted here for a while).
When the new license came in I was about to get married and planning to have a child, it seemed the right time to leave.

This weekend the Manager of the bar I work at handed me a memo that had been cascaded down from his head office. Just over 2 weeks ago at a cinema in a nearby town (The Odeon in the Festival Leisure Park, Basildon, Essex - for the locals who are interested) an individual sat down in the cinema and felt a sharp pain. When they looked down they found part of a needle sticking out of the seat, and it alledgedly had a note saying "Now you've got HIV too!". Apparently Police have found needles in the rejected coins slots of vending machines to.

I've not heard this confirmed as gospel, but its not the first time I've heard of this happening and the Head office for the chain of bars I do security for felt it nessacary to cascade the memo.




Hmmm. That's my local Cinema and I'm not going there for a while (shudder)...

Respectfully,

I heard you need to be exposed by huge amounts of spit (approx 10 pints) before you're in danger of HIV or aids. Blood however is a different matter.




Hep B and C are the biggies with saliva. There was once a warning passed around in Belfast because the flute bands had a practice of swapping flutes as they marched. The papers said that it was possible to pass infection through the band in this way.

As for urban myths, they can turn to reality cos someone copycats them. I had a friend whose son was mugged at needle point.
