Palmerston North 'No Regrets' safe party pack
Parties can be fun, exciting and a great way for young people to relax and enjoy themselves, but sometimes parties can get out of hand and become unsafe.
By being organised and following a few simple tips you can host a party that is enjoyable, and safe.
The 'No Regrets' Safe Party Pack has been produced to provide parents and young people with information that will encourage them to organise and enjoy a trouble free party.
Please note: The section on "Host and the Law" and "Teenagers and the Liquor Laws" are in the process of being updated.
From 18 December 2013, there are new laws for supplying alcohol to under-18s.
It is illegal to supply alcohol to someone under the age of 18 years unless:
- the person supplying the alcohol is the parent or legal guardian and the alcohol is supplied in a responsible manner, or
- the person supplying alcohol has the express consent of the young person’s parent or legal guardian and the alcohol is supplied in a responsible manner.
You could be fined up to $2,000 if you don't follow the law.
