Sian McAleer visited the club with her solo mother Rachael. They had come to our meeting the week before but at 7pm. She was surprised by the presence of security guards and the large number of men attending the Anger Management courses. Rachael said to me is that Mr Smith? She was taught at primary school by Russell!
