Telephone Service Newsletter July 2021

Hi Everyone

First, a new intergroup title for North Herts. In future it will be known as N Herts and N Beds Intergroup. The area covers from Carlton in the north to Welwyn Garden City in the south to coincide with the telephone service area. South Beds will remain the same and will continue to work together with NHNB as a joint Telephone Service.

Sadly, we‚??ve had to say farewell to Chris (alternate Mon nights week 1), we wish you well with your new promotion Chris. Lisa C (alternate Wednesday afternoon week 2) has also had to stand down for the time being. So as you can see from the rota there are vacancies (in red) now. Please encourage your sponsees and any others you can think of to put their names forward for the service, it was there for many of us when we needed it and is often the first port of call for the still suffering alcoholic.

On a brighter note we extend a very warm welcome to Mike C who has filled the alternate Wednesday 1 ‚?? 6pm week 2 shift. Mike was a responder in London some time back so learned the ‚??old system‚?? of handover, we‚??re sure he‚??ll find this one much quicker and easier. Richard and Katy please note, thank you.

This coming Saturday Michael O is covering for Sue, Suzanne and Sam please note, thank you.

Several meetings have re-opened now, details can be found in the ‚??Find a Meeting‚?? section of the AA website. Face to face meetings is listed first followed by those which are still Zoom/hybrid. The Biggleswade Tuesday evening group will be moving from St. Peter‚??s Church, Station Road to The Orchard Community Centre, Sullivan Court Erlensee Way Biggleswade SG18 8SZ on Tuesday 3rd August. Meeting starts at the usual time of 8pm for one hour, with no breaks. Covid protocols remain in place.

Regretfully the get-together has had to be deferred but please be assured it will be arranged asap. We look forward to seeing you all, the previous two were a great success with lots of discussion and points being raised/resolved.

We‚??re getting reports of the number of calls dropping off for some responders, one or two who have questioned the need for the Telephone Service. Others have been extra busy so just be aware that if you have a few quiet shifts this can change at any time. You may be calling us to say you barely had a moment to yourself another time! There is always the need for the service, if just one person a day calls us it makes it all worthwhile. It‚??s also good to know that regular members of AA have called the service when their usual contacts haven‚??t been available. As you know we‚??re not just here for the still suffering alcoholic but those of us in recovery as well.
