LCCC Smoking Policy 2014:
Smoking is NOT ALLOWED IN ANY SEATS within the ground.
The practical implication of this for match days is that anyone wishing to smoke will need to go to an uncovered open area i.e. car parks or paths surrounding the ground well away from the seating areas. Please use the wall mounted cigarette bins provided around the ground when disposing of cigarette ends.
Smoking will not be permitted in any building or in a covered area which includes:
- The Meet and The Geary Stand
- All Executive Rooms
- All Hospitality Boxes and Balconies
- The David Gower Suite & Balcony
- The Charles Palmer Suite
- All covered concourse areas and all toilets
Leicestershire County Cricket Club asks all our Members and Spectators to embrace this new regulation.
Here are some facts about smoking:
- One in every two long-term smokers dies prematurely as a result of smoking.
- Smoking takes oxygen out of the blood and reduces levels of stamina and fitness. So if you want to be top of your sports game it’s best to be smokefree.
- Smoking tobacco gives you dull skin, wrinkles and bad breath. It stains your fingers yellow and makes your clothes and hair smell.
- Smoking increases the risk of impotence by around 50% for men in their 30s and 40s.
- Smoking is expensive! A smoker of 20 a day spends £50 a week, and over £2,500 a year.
Smoking also can have a long lasting adverse affect on children:
- If children see smoking as a normal part of everyday life they are more likely to become smokers themselves
- Children whose parents smoke are around 3 times more likely to become smokers themselves
- Children can become addicted to nicotine quickly - A child who smokes just 1 cigarette doubles their chances of becoming a regular smoker by 17.
- Children who are exposed to secondhand smoking are more likely to develop chest problems such as bronchitis; asthma; middle ear infections (glue ear) and deafness; and babies are at risk of sudden infant cot death
- Avoid smoking around children and young people - Make your home and car smokefree. If you or visitors choose to smoke – go outside.
