The Mansfield & Ashfield FMS & ME Support Group
The Mansfield & Ashfield FMS & ME Support Group was set up in 2005 for people with these conditions. We are primarily a social group, a safe haven where you can come and have a chat with others like yourself, make friends and reduce the feelings of fear, stress and isolation. Our aims are: to raise the awareness of both Fibromyalgia and ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome together, with all the additional intrinsically linked symptoms associated with both conditions; to share experiences and have the support of others in the same situation: to enable you to have some normality of life and self manage your condition.
We go on small outings every other month, suitable for those with fatigue illnesses, these trips are subsidised for Members. We also have a ‘Sleeping Members Network Support’ provision for those Members who are housebound or can’t attend all meeting either by text, e-mail or phone call. Our Group also access Kings Mill Hydrotherapy Pool once a week (these sessions are currently postponed due to Covid Regulations at KMH, hopefully these sessions will recommence in Spring time 2023).
Morning Meetings: are held on 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, 10.30am – 12.30pm at Mansfield Museum (next door to Mansfield Palace Theatre), Leeming Street, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire NG18 1NG. The Subscription is: £2.50 per meeting towards room costs and refreshment costs. (There is No charge: for your 1st time visit). The venue is fully accessible with all amenities, meetings are held on the ground floor.
Annual Membership: This runs from January – December each year, the cost is £7.50 for Single Membership and £12.50 for Joint Membership. Please Note:
Evening Meetings: are held on 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month, 6.00pm – 7.30pm at a Venue to be confirmed (due to moving to a new venue)
