Pocklington ME/CFS Support Group

About Us

I moved to Pocklington in September 2015 and a month or so before I came I emailed Tony Britten of the ME Association to see if there were any support groups in the area. He told me there wasn't one for Pocklington and why didn't I start one myself? Tony wasted no time advertising the new group starting up and I had several members before I'd even moved here!

Our regular meeting is at one o'clock on the first Wednesday of each month (unless there's a particular reason why not) at the World Peace Cafe at the Buddhist Centre, Kilnwick Percy but we also have other meetings and events as and when people think of them.

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 and I think we've all made new friends through the group.

We've recently added some more social events to our calendar. If you'd be interested in getting updates on these then please let me know and I'll put you in contact with the person who's organising them. If you live in the Pocklington area (anywhere between York and Beverley, further if you can travel to Pocklington) and you have ME, CFS, Fibromyalgia, PVFS or similar condition and would like to join our group then please contact us by email initially. We'd love to hear from you.
