The following groups require visitors and home group members:
Rhyl Sunday - Meeting start at 8.00pm urgently request support by members attendance for this group meeting. Membership and attendance is low and might been in danger of closing unless members help by supporting its attendance.
Saltney - The Vibrant Saltney group meeting, held Tuesday 8pm at Oddfellows Hall is looking for group members to commit and joint the group and actively take part in the running of the group. This is key to keep the meeting running along AA guidelines and service helps us all to integrate and become apart of our fellowship. Please embrace this opportunity and contact Lisa / Sue if you would like to discuss joining.
Ruabon -The Friday Ruabon, 8pm meeting at Ruabon Community Centre, Wrexham urgently request support by female members attendance for this group meeting. Looking for group members to commit and joint the group and actively take part in the running of the meeting, it may need to close unless members help by supporting its attendance. For information please contact Andy / Owen at the meeting.
Old Colwyn Tuesday - The Tuesday ‘big book read’ group in Old Colwyn is struggling. Its current group leader travels a fair distance to ‘help’ but cannot do it alone. The group desperately needs support and members who may in time wish to assist! Please pass this message on, if your ‘regular’ Tuesday night group is flourishing, maybe excusing yourself to support this group would be a kind gesture and prove helpful
The details are (and maybe contrary to where to find etc) Sure Hope/interchange, Old Colwyn opposite Texaco (formerly BP) garage. 19.30 to 21.00. The group looks forward to your support.
See find a meeting section for full details of addresses and start times.

We have approached local newspapers with the idea of printing AA Members stories over the Alcohol Awareness month of November 2012. Please send your stories (max 500 words) to email@example.com
We are looking for a wide variety of different stories for them to choose from.
Please see a few good ideas below for possible PI Activity. If you can think of any other ideas please advise in the comments box below. The following is re-printed from PI News in July 2012.
Committee 1 at Conference this year stated that ‘the Fellowship needs to raise its public profile’. ‘…we are Alcoholics Anonymous and not “alcoholics invisible.’
The proposition is that every Group, Intergroup, Region and every member of the General Service Board contributes to the cause in accordance with Tradition 11 and its own group conscience. November gives plenty of time to plan ahead and immediately precedes the traditional drinking season around Christmas and the New Year…perhaps a good time to sow seeds in the public consciousness!
It is, of course, up to individual Groups, Intergroups and Regions to determine their own initiatives and what they believe will work locally. Posters in libraries, surgeries, police custody suites are always helpful. Making Group meetings open to the general public and invited professionals can also be very effective. There is wide range of possible initiatives; the important thing is that we make a concerted effort on a Fellowship-wide basis. The following is a list of activities which were carried out successfully last year. The actual articles were included in PISN over subsequent months. A document entitled “PI Awareness Week November 2011 Articles” which consolidates the articles on the themes listed below is available from on the AA website at:
- Big Books donated to main libraries with helpline number on the flysheet.
- Information sent out to GP surgeries, community centres, chemists, libraries.
- Professionals and members of the community invited to open meetings
- Pre-recorded AA shares broadcast on local radio
- An AA meeting was recorded (anonymity protected) – 6 shares were used and broadcast locally together with information from professionals and those affected by alcoholism.
- AA information stands at local shopping centres and libraries.
- Stories told to local newspapers
- Professionals and members of the community were invited to public meetings.
Part of Dr. Bob’s last message reads:
“Our 12 Steps, when simmered down to the last, resolve themselves into the words love and service. We understand what love is and we understand what service is. So let’s bear those two things in mind”
I know these stories had an affect on some people – I was at a meeting where a newcomer was inspired to come as she had related strongly to one of the stories.
