Today we had a talk from Jo Hedges from Sutton and East Surrey Water on the issue of drinking water quality and the fact that we don’t drink enough water.
We received leaflets giving us advice and we all went away with a cup to remind us to keep drinking.

Here’s a website with some health information and articles which you might find interesting. We have added the site to our Links list.
Paul Scully, MP for Sutton and Cheam, visited the group today. He spent time talking to our members about fibromyalgia and the problems that sufferes face. Thank you to Paul for spending the time with us – hopefully he will link up with Alok Sharma MP (Reading West), who held a debate on fibromyalgia in Westminster Hall.
We reported on her debate – click on link.
This event might be interesting – details are on the flyer.
Jacqui picked up the following link from FMA UK to some interesting research into fibromyalgia. She thought you might find it interesting.
On the last Wednesday of each month we hold a craft session. Michelle (one of our volunteers) runs the session. We make cards for all occasions and we will sell them at our Christmas Fayre.
We went to the seaside yesterday – to Eastbourne to be precise. We went for fish and chips and sat on the peer. We explored the shops and generally hung out together. A great day was had by all.
The local Police gave us a talk on yesterday about general safety issues. It covered hand-bag safety in the high street and rogue callers and how to avoid being caught-out.
It was really useful to be reminded to be careful when out and about and also to keep safe when at home.
Yesterday we went to a pub lunch at The Moon on the Hill, Sutton. It was a chance to celebrate the birthday of one of the members and just to get together.
After lunch it was back to SCILL where we took part in a mindfullness session with Jackie Farrell who promotes issues around Essential Tremor. We have found out that some people with fibromyalgia suffer from this condition too.
