This bumper episode comes in two parts.

Part One: Alex and his family attended an international buffet at Radbrook Community Centre. This event featured 22 countries who brought along food to share with members of the community. Alex spoke to organiser Kate, participants from the different nations that they represented, the Mayor of Shrewsbury Elisabeth Roberts, members of the PCSO and the police. This was fun.

Part Two: Alex and Verity sit down with Vince Dovey and Neville Street who are representing their company 1st & Bowery. It seems that every time Vince comes on the show, he has created something new to help protect people. This time Vince and Neville have created a product that can not only help with drink spike detection, but also help keep a database of where detections are discovered.

But Shrewsbury has is a “purple patch” when it comes to the town’s nightlife, with what Vince calls a nice, safe reputation. So why do we need tech like this in a town like Shrewsbury? Well this is discussed at depth.

This product partners up drink test strips and tech in a way that is unique, which makes Vince and Neville pioneers. It seems like not only is Shrewsbury the birthplace for this product, but the town would be the perfect place for it to be rolled out. Alberts Shed is onboard but more clubs and bars are needed to really test this product out. If you would like to find out more please visit the 1st and Bowery website –
