The regular Wednesday Women's Group of Alcoholics Anonymous has ceased. Though a number of individuals came to receive help and support, such groups have to be self-supporting and, after a number of weeks, this had not happened. The group was established to offer specific help to women experiencing problems with alcohol, problems that can sometimes be addressed better in a single sex group.
The Community Centre was delighted to be asked to hold such a group, the first time they had ventured into providing space for this kind of specific personal self-help. The quiet Small Room makes an excellent base for any such group and the Committee hope that they may be able to host similar organisations in the future. They would be pleased to welcome AA back in the future if the demand within the area changed.
The nation's drinking culture has altered much in recent years and the problems that excessive alcohol consumption can cause are becoming better known. If you or anyone you know might benefit from the help and support that AA can provide, please do call Eva on 07790 240168. There are other, regular AA meetings taking place in the local area that open to all who might need support.
