In April 2017 it was agreed by the Paphos group that a 11th step prayer and meditation meeting be held at their convention for a 5 day period starting at 7am. This was greatly welcomed and the bond that was established through this was amazing. It was agreed that the step 11 meeting would be part of the next convention in 2018, and for following conventions through the year ahead in Birmingham, Torrevieja and Fort William.
