Adelaide support group meeting
Monday 2 May 2011
Our first gathering this year will be a Support group meeting on Saturday 7th May at Sophia House. This will be an opportunity to come along for a relaxed chat with other ME/CFS sufferers (no guest speaker at this meeting).
Tea/coffee/biscuits will be provided – but bring your own lunch if you want to.
If you haven't been to Sophia before, it is a particularly comfortable venue with chairs, a couple of sofas, and a decent carpet if you are better lying on the floor. We hope to see as many of you as possible on the day.
Please wear warm comfortable loose fitting clothing and you may like to bring a rug or cushion. You can sit in a chair or on a cushion or lie on a carpeted floor if unwell. The venue is heated using gas.
If it's cold, the venue is usually heated using gas, unless we are informed in advance that this will likely cause a chemical sensitivity problem for any member.
Many people with ME/CFS are extremely chemically sensitive, so we ask attendees to refrain from wearing aftershaves, perfumes etc, and please refrain from smoking at our meetings.
We'd love to see you there.
Sophia is 225 Cross Road Cumberland Park, adjacent to Cabra College, and ten minutes from the city centre by car or bus. Turn west (towards the sea, not the hills) from Goodwood Road. The carpark entrance is off Cross Road at the Sophia sign. There's a walk from the carpark to Sophia House, of about 50 metres.
Buses from the city originate on King William Road (Bus 210, 216, 214, 218) and travel via Goodwood Road (to Flinders University, Panorama and Happy Valley). Alight at stop 9 and walk west along Cross Road. (This is about 450 metres, so generally would be an issue for ME/CFS people. The Circle Line stop 176 is about the closest you can get, about 50 metres from Sophia's gate.)
Buses also travel from the city (Bus 296, 297) along East Avenue. Alight at stop 12, the Cross Road intersection, and walk east to Sophia.
Sophia is actually located on the Circle Line (Bus 100) – get off at stop 176 Churchill Avenue.
The conference room is in the modern building to the left, at the end of a curved lane.
