    Stay safe for the sake of Auld Lang Syne

    There’s always plenty of ‘new year, new you’ advice around at this time of year, but Accident Advice Helpline wants to help the old you stay safe and enjoy the new year in full.

    New year’s old home is Scotland, with the tradition of Hogmanay still running strong after centuries – so we thought we’d look there for tips on a harmless Hogmanay.

    Edinburgh’s Hogmanay is promising ‘a rocking good party’ with Twin Atlantic, Twilight Sad, Eddi Reader and this year’s Mercury Prize-winners, Edinburgh’s own Young Fathers, along with Auld Lang Syne at midnight.

    Keep your alcohol consumption under control wherever you are and remember that alcohol poisoning is a real risk.

    The Scottish police, along with other forces around the UK, are advising that friends stick together and look out for each other to stop people who have had a few too many from hurting themselves or becoming victims of crime.

    But this shouldn’t be necessary if everyone drinks in moderation and takes care to keep an eye on their tipples to stop spikers.

    Fire Balls and frost bite

    As Aberdeenshire prepares for around 12,000 people to turn out for events including Stonehaven’s Fireballs Ceremony and Open Air in The Square, the Local Area Police Commander wants to keep the public safe from cold weather.

    Chief Inspector Richard Craig encourages people to make sure that they are dressed for the conditions with a planned route to and from their parties to avoid exposure to the elements.

    Fortunately, the weather won’t be too cold, but the chill in the air isn’t the only thing to look out for.

    Outdoor events and street parties provide the ideal hunting ground for pickpockets and other thieves so Mr Craig advises friends to stay together and watch their own valuables as well as each other’s.

    And don’t forget to stay safe around fireworks.

    If you are unfortunate enough to get injured over new year’s, remember that Accident Advice Helpline can always help with personal injury claims. Call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no obligation legal advice about making a claim.
