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 normally meet on the fourth Thursday of every month.
Up to now we have met at one of two venues, either the Edge Cafe on the Brookfield Hospital site on Mill Road or the Sunflower Café at Scotsdales Garden Centre, Shelford. But a lot of people find them too noisy, so we are going to try some new places.
Our next planned meet-up will be:
Thursday 26th July
Brookfields Hospital site
351 Mill Road
Free parking available.
If you’d like to attend but will have difficulty getting there, contact the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org and we may be able to help with a lift.
