Lincolnshire MESH group has changed its name to the Lincolnshire ME Support Group – after hearing from new members that the name MESH had meant nothing to them.
In a letter circulated this week, chairman Andrew Hall explains: “A lot of new members were telling us that they did not realiose there was an ME/CFS group in Lincolnshire.
“And when the local papers printed details of our meetings, they would tend to print MESH and – if you did not know who were were – MESH meant nothing. So we have decided that it's time to change the name so it is similar to many of the other local support groups around the country.”
The group's next meeting will be held in North Hykeham Memorial Hall, 317 Newark Road, North Hykeham, Lincoln LN6 9RY, on Saturday, 13 February at 2.15pm. There will be an Annual General Meeting followed by a talk on Pilates by Jo Dales.
