On Sunday 1st July, it will be against the law to smoke, or permit others to smoke, in virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces in England. This new law is being introduced to protect employees and the public from the harmful effects of second hand smoke.
In light of this new piece of legislation, it has been decided that the home of Harlequins, the Twickenham Stoop Stadium, will become a completely smoke free zone from this date. Therefore, no smoking will be allowed within the perimeter fence at the Twickenham Stoop Stadium.
Harlequins fan Ed Atkin won the Etihad Airways 'Up and Under' competition at the Northampton Saints game. As a result, he and a friend have won a holiday to Abu Dhabi courtesy of Etihad Airways and the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.
