Community activists attended a drug and alcohol information event on Monday night which was organised by the Cavanaleck Community Association in Enniskillen Library.

Speaking at the event, a committee member said:

"We organised this event because of the concerns that our community have raised with us such as the legal changes around 'legal highs' to where to go for help.

"We had organisations here such as the Fermanagh Drug and Alcohol forum, Breakthru, Action Mental Health, Community Education, the Ark Healthy Living Centre, The Find Centre, and the PSNI.

Councillor Debbie Coyle, who was also involved in organising the event said:

"Many people across Enniskillen have contacted me regarding their concerns over drugs in their area. They want to know what to do and what help is available.

"Tonight, we had a very interesting presentation from the PSNI based on the issues in Enniskillen and the wider Fermanagh and Omagh area. Some of the details are very concerning.

"We also had a very interesting presentation from Action Mental Health who informed us all what help is available for people from New Horizons, based in Enniskillen.

"As community activists, it is important to have this information so that it can be shared with others in the community.

"I would encourage anyone in our community who is affected in one way or another by drug, alcohol or mental health issues to seek advice. I am happy to liaise with anyone who may not be sure where to go." - Ends/Críoch
