OMEGA recommends that you check with the organiser before going to a social group meeting, especially if you have not been to one before. It can help to find the group if you know exactly where they will be within the venue.
Although these events are usually held every month, it can happen that a meeting is cancelled due to circumstances beyond everyone's control. If someone knows you are intending to come, they will try to let you know beforehand if this happens.
OMEGA Oxford Area Social gathering
OMEGA Oxford Area Social gathering takes place on the first Monday of every month (except bank holidays when it will be the following Monday). An opportunity for OMEGA members and carers to socialise with other ME sufferers.
Time from 1.15 pm onwards at De Vere Hotel (formerly Oxford Thames Four Pillars), Henley Road, Sandford-on-Thames, Oxford OX4 4GX
The 3A city bus runs every half hour from Oxford to the hotel, going via Iffley Rd and stops just beyond the hotel entrance.
Best if you check beforehand, with it being a small group there are times we are all too ill or can’t make it for another reason. Contact 01993 866610 or firstname.lastname@example.org
South Oxfordshire ME/CFS Support Group
We usually meet on the second Monday of the month, (except when a Bank Holiday falls on the 1st Monday the month, then we meet on the 3rd Monday in the month).

The X39/X40 Oxford to Reading bus stops on the main road in Shillingford near the turning to the hotel (five minutes’ walk). There is also car parking on site. (The Thames Travel 139 bus no longer stops near to the hotel).
