Free community meeting

A free community event is being held in Opotiki tonight that will feature stories from two people who have tangled with methamphetamine and found sobriety.


Redemption Walk In Opotiki is hosting the event, which will feature social media sensation Nicola 'Nix' Adams and former drug king pin Billy Macfarlane talking about their journeys.


Tania Joughin, Facilitator for Redemption Walk In Opotiki, says she hopes tonight's event will help people realise they can get through meth addiction.


She says the group holds weekly meetings for all those in the community struggling with methamphetamine use and their whanau.


The event starts at 6 o'clock and is being held at Pavilion Park in Opotiki.
