Subject: RE: BS: Smoking in public to be banned (UK)
But walking down the street behind someone who is smoking and breathing in the smoke wafting back is not pleasant (or healthy) either.

This year in the Middle Bar in Sidmouth, we had signs up politely asking if people would refrain from smoking in the singing. The reason for this was that two of our well-loved members are ill and cannot spend time in smokey places. Everybody was very good about it with the result that the atmosphere in the bar was much pleasanter than usual, singing was easier and a lot of people who usually lose their voices either partly or entirely in the course of the week, didn't.
