At meet-ups ME and fibromyalgia sufferers can expect a friendly welcome from fellow-sufferers who are very familiar with how it affects life! One of the main benefits is not having to explain or justify yourself. We want members to be able to relax and enjoy themselves in a supportive environment, free from judgement or criticism of their limitations. Everyone who comes is coping with chronic illness in one way or another.
Living with ME is an obvious topic of discussion, but we don’t limit ourselves to that! Feel free to talk about anything you want. This is a social occasion above all.
Who can come
The meet-ups are open only to group members, and to supporting adult companions. So if you’d like to come, and haven’t joined yet, head over to the Contact page and get in touch!
When and where
We usually meet at one of three venues, the Edge Cafe on the Brookfield Hospital site on Mill Road, the Sunflower Café at Scotsdales Garden Centre, Shelford, or the 1815 cafe/bar at the Cambridge Union (Round Church St), but we’re always open to new ideas.
This month (February 2020), the meet-up will be on the third Thursday, 20th February at 2pm. This is because on the Saturday of the next week (the 29th) there is a special event – Yoga for ME – whose details you can find here on the Events page, or on the CrMEtea Facebook page. We are moving the meet-up forward a week to avoid over-taxing the energies of those who would like to attend both.
The meet-up will be at:
The Edge Cafe
Brookfields Hospital Site
351 Mill Road, Cambridge,
It’s immediately on the right after entering the site from Mill Rd.
