THE Lockyer Valley Liquor Industry Action Group is encouraging show-goers to drink responsibly this Gatton Show weekend.

The group has also warned anyone under a current LIAG ban that any licensed areas within the show are also part of LIAG.

Greg Steffens from Lockyer Valley Security Services said they would have up-to-date material about those people on a ban with them at the show.

The licensed areas included the Tinny Bar and a bar at the Table Tennis Club.

These areas are licensed to run from 10am-6pm on Friday night and until 11.45pm on Saturday night - the main night of entertainment this year.

Gatton police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Tom Missingham said there would be a strong police presence at the show.

"It is always a good family event and we do not expect any problems," he said.

"We just encourage people to do the right thing, to enjoy the night and drink responsibly."
