Covid19: Indoor face-to-face meetups have been cancelled until further notice. Virtual meetings via Zoom will be held semi-regularly. These will be posted at the bottom of this page and on the CrMEtea Facebook page.
At meet-ups ME 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.
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. Indoor physical meetings are suspended until the covid19 pandemic has abated. There will be an experimental outdoor meeting this month: see the Events page for details.
We will aim to hold two meetings per month, on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, 2-3:30pm. Technically, those on the second Wednesday are meetings of the Cambridgeshire rural group, crMEtea, and those on the fourth are CBME, but members of both groups are welcome to attend both meetings.The next planned two meetings are:
Wednesday 14th April, 2pm: CrMEtea.
Wednesday 28th April, 2pm: CBME
Meetings will be held using the Zoom app. You can participate via your browser or install Zoom on your PC, laptop or smartphone if you wish.
If you would like to attend the meeting, email mark for an invitation.
Note that you need to be a signed-up member of CBME or crMEtea (the Cambs rural ME support group)
