A mother with a daugher with ME  who originally booked the village hall to see if there was a need in the area for people with ME/CFS to support each other.... because there was nothing else in this area at all! .... and the rest is history! .... and will continue to do this as long as it is needed

Carers or supporters of people with ME .... ranging from husbands, wives, partners, mothers, fathers, family, friends

  • We are a NEW friendly, informal support group for anyone affected by the debilitating illness ME/CFS (mayalgic encephalomeyelitis/Myalgic Encephalopathy/chronic fatigue syndrome).


  • In June 2014 we started meeting monthly at the quiet rural setting of Meerbrook Village Hall, not far from Leek in Staffordshire.


  • The village hall is booked for 2 hours and light refreshments are provided.


  • Anyone who is affected by or interestd in this debilitating illness is very welcome to come along for a few minutes or the whole time depending on how you feel on the day. .... join us for a cup of tea....... bring your own tea bag if you prefer...... or just come to say "hello"


  • If you can't make the next date but would like to make contact then phone or email Barbara on 01538 300101


  • This is a very new group - only started in June 2014 - but so far meetings have been well attended and it would appear there is clearly some need for support in this area.
