       -   Addicts enquiring about attending meetings and meeting details for various parts of the
           country.

       -   The usual information about conventions abroad which I’ve forwarded on.

       -   A TV production company was looking to talk with a member of staff about the abuse of use
           of pharmaceutical drugs, naturally we have no opinion on this.

       -   Maghaberry prison were inquiring about information day in the institution.

Any Other Business

The standard protocol is that the Tea person is to bring the refreshment bag containing the tea, coffee
and sugar home for safe keeping. In case of relocation this would be wise, but it is not realistic due to
some Tea person’s do not drive it would be a hardship to transport the refreshment bag back and forth
each week; unfortunately, it has to be left behind in the establishment that is rented for the meetings
but it cannot be helped.
