Pocklington Chronic Fatigue Community

Pocklington Chronic Fatigue Community

About Us





The group began life in September 2015 as the Pocklington ME/CFS Support Group and soon had its first members thanks to an entry on the ME Association website. The group has met up each month in the World Peace Cafe pretty much from the start.

After a while we incorporated Fibro into our name as we were finding many sufferers of Fibromyalgia asking to join and we became the Pocklington ME/CFS/Fibro Support Group.

We're a friendly group and love to greet new members. We drink tea and eat cake and we always seem to have plenty to talk about. Of course, the conversation is sometimes about our illness, we share ideas and things that have or haven't helped us, but it isn't all about that by any means. It's just nice to chat, knowing others understand the issues of chronic fatigue.

In order to improve accessibility we have moved our regular social meeting to the Feathers Hotel on Market Street in Pocklington. It is generally at half past one on the third Thursday of each month.

In 2019 we changed our name again in order to include any condition which causes chronic fatigue and we are now called the Pocklington Chronic Fatigue Community.

We have a small committee who are looking into other ways of supporting sufferers of chronic fatigue. These include social gatherings and online resources with the help of grants. As all the committee have some form of chronic fatigue these things will take time to get organised and we welcome offers of help.

With our limited resources and capabilities, we seek to provide support for fellow sufferers. With this in mind, our first project is to provide specially designed yoga classes at a reduced rate to our members. We are already running the classes at a cost of £5 per session but we hope to be able to reduce this cost with the help of subsidies through community grants.

If you live in the Pocklington area and you have ME, CFS, Fibromyalgia, PVFS, Long Covid or similar condition that causes chronic fatigue and would like to join our group then please contact us by email initially at
