Changing Those UK Pub Vape Bans One Bar At A Time Through “Considerate Vaping”

An extract from an article by Neil H, posted on the ecigclick website HERE

The advocacy groups can’t do it all on their own – sure they have access to the politicians and some of those ‘jobsworths’ imposing the silly vape bans up and down the country – but we as vapers are the grass roots – the ones who can change reluctant landlords minds.

And to prove I’m not just talking the talk…I’m actually walking the walk…

Over the last few weeks I’ve been talking all things vape to landlords – managers and bar staff in a few of the pubs in my hometown of Leamington Spa and with I might add some success.

Obviously larger chains such as Wetherspoon can’t lift vape bans at local level – that’s down to the management team – however as vapers we are like it or not – not only pseudo advocates but the ones that can get those bans lifted by setting the right example.

You’ll see what I mean by that in a wee while.

OK let’s just show you what the New Nicotine Alliance campaign of Considerate Vaping Welcome actually means in the real world and how sensible conversations on vaping can and do change pub landlord’s minds.
