Brighton and Hove Thyroid Support Group

Hi folks, I would like to get a local support group off the ground in Brighton/Hove for anyone struggling with Thyroid issues. Would like to meet once a month, either daytime (I think I could get access to a community room for a couple of hours) or evening after 7.30pm (not Monday, Tuesday or Friday!) maybe in a local pub? Please reply with preference for time/day, thank you!

This is brilliant news! :) We used to have a group on our list in that area, but they closed down a while ago now! :)

I have pinned this for you.

Thank you for the encouragement! I've put a group up on Meetup too - Brighton Thyroid Health Support Group, to try and gather members, any idea why the last group closed? I can't believe that there are not enough people in the Brighton catchment area to warrant it... I guess everyone was too exhausted to go :(

I think that the lady who was organising it was too unwell.

Give it time - you might get some takers yet! :) xx

I would be I interested in this. Day or evening. I work shifts so no preference on day, it would just depend on my rota.

Brilliant theminx, good to hear from you. I've put details up on meetup.com you should be able to find it easily as Brighton thyroid health support group, the date/time/place can be changed but meetup wanted a first meeting detailed before listing!

Joined up! Can't do 17th due to work (and my attendance at meetings may be sporadic due to shifts but happy to support when I can).

Hi Liverish, I'm really interested too! Also fairly flexible as to day or evening meet up. Thought I had replied to you previously but must have been doing something wrong. sorry!

Excellent, did you find the details ok on meetup.com? I might need to move the date I have there according to people/venue availability, but I had to put a date in to set it up. Look forward to meeting you!

Smashing! I know everyone has online forum overload but please can I ask you to check it out on meetup.com, it's easier for me to administer there - it's not an onerous join up process and just means you'll get notifications of meetings, it doesn't take the place of forums like this... I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

I've only just seen this but it sounds great. I've just joined on meetup.com. Thanks!

I would also be interested in a Brighton/Hove group. Daytime suits best for me, to accommodate everyone perhaps two could be organised day and evening one.

Hi Orpheline, I'm more than happy for that, it really depends on how many folk are interested and can make it. If you can't come to the one scheduled for 30th September I will ask and see if folks can make daytime ones, maybe we could alternate it each month, everything is possible!

Sure its a good start, just post where and when. :))
