Thus, the extra days during the holiday season to keep up the name of Chester being a space for travellers and tourists alike. It is promoting the name of Chester as a fun and safe place meant for enjoyable night-outs.

Initial research has indicated that the safe space project saves £9.31 for every £1 invested for reduced admissions in the accidents and emergency services. The reduced usage of police and ambulance services helps the economy finally. One resident of the locality by the name of Rosa even commented that the facility is great for part goers like her. College students, party goers, and females are the ones who are able to benefit the most using this service. Injured, drunk or lost people – anyone can receive help at these safe havens.

Even though the place is of great service, people keep complaining that the shipping container looking safe spots are sore to the eye and should have better aesthetics. No wonder the place has gardened high hopes from them.
