SMEG Events and Meetings

Our group's AGM will take place on Tuesday 26th August 2014  at 6:30pm at Bayston Hill Memorial Hall.

Shropshire SMEG Self-help groups

People with M.E. usually find it helpful if they can meet others with the same illness. Below is a list of places where small, informal groups have been set up where people with M.E. can meet. The groups vary in size and frequency of events but all groups welcome everyone who attends; in fact, you don't even have to be a member to come along!

It should come as no surprise that people with such a difficult illness often have a lot of empathy, patience and understanding for others with the same condition. These groups can often serve as an oasis to people who attend as this mysterious illness is sogreatly misunderstood in the larger community.

Bridgnorth: Held on the first Tuesday of each month from around 12-2 pm at Parlour’s Hall Hotel. Please contact Elizabeth for more details.

North Shropshire: please contact Amelia for more details.

Oswestry: please contact Megan for more details.

Powys or South Shropshire border:  please contact Karen for details. The group meets in Montgomery, situated on the Shropshire border.

Shrewsbury: Held in the front foyer lounge of The Lord Hill Hotel, Abbey Foregate, on the first Thursday of each month between 12pm and 1pm. Very regular and informal. If you find a group of six or more chatting together it will undoubtedly be the group.

South Shropshire: please contact Rosemary for more details.

Telford and Wrekin: please contact Daphne for more details.
