Revellers asked to keep beer in the arena at Oceanfest
Police say they will take a friendly approach but please, no booze on the streets or the beach.
MORE than 25 police staff will be deployed during each day at GoldCoast Oceanfest in Croyde this weekend.
It all begins tonight (Friday) with live music in the arena and continues until Sunday, but entry is by ticket only.
Inspector Roger Bartlett said police were working closely with organisers and community volunteers to hopefully ensure an enjoyable weekend for all.
“Our role is to be friendly – it’s a family event and an environment where people can enjoy themselves,” he said.

“But there is a zero tolerance approach to drinking on the beach and in the village. We want drink to be limited to the arena and to the pubs, we’re not going to tolerate it elsewhere and will be seizing alcohol from anybody drinking on the street or in the dunes.”
