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 meet on the fourth Thursday of every month.
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 just for a change, we are going to meet at Mark’s place and attempt a game of Articulate! Just the thing for brain-fogged people in the middle of the week..
Bring a cake! Or something else sugary and edible.
Our next planned meet-up will be:
Thursday 27th August
9 Priory St
It’s the white house, halfway down on the left (from the Huntingdon Rd end).
Parking: bang on the door and ask Mark for a permit to park on the street.
If you’d like to attend but will have difficulty getting there, contact mark at email@example.com and we may be able to help with a lift.
