    Miss Ellie has kindly listed all the groups, go into support group thread on the forum page, and it is the top thread, also saying support groups, and gives the Soton address and contact details. Also, Renn runs a Streamline one at the Holiday Inn near Locks Heath that lots of us go to. best wishes, Ruby

    Donna, I started attending a couple of groups in March when I went for my consultation, and my op date is August! I found it invaluable, learnt lots, made friends, and it will be much much better post-op to attend knowing everyone, so go for it, and enjoy! xx

    You are always very welcome as is anyone reading this. You can find out more at my website Obesity Weight Consultant for Southampton I Weight Management Programme for West Sussex I Lifestyle Weight Consultant for Portsmouth. If you email me nearer the date I’ll look out for you on arrival.
    Welcome to the forum and you will soon make buddies as the lovely Ruby Tuesday has.

    Hi Donna

    I’m half way between Southampton and Portsmouth so I attend the one At the Fareham Holiday Inn (which, like Ruby said is really nearer Locks Heath/Park Gate) with Renn, and the Hayling Island one with Buzz. There IS one in Southampton but it’s on a Saturday so no good for me. I would heartily recommend coming along. I never thought I was a support group ‘type’ of person but I absolutely LOVE going along and meeting all the lovely people I now consider true friends. I’m 3 years post op and wish I had known about them sooner!!

    Hi.

    I have just read about the Southampton support group. Is it still running?

    Is it open to new people or just those who have had the surgery?

    If it is open I would love to attend tomorrow.

    Can anyone give me details?

    There is a support group on Monday 15th August at the Langstone Hotel, Hayling island at 7pm. We usually sit in the bar area or in the back room to the left of the bar, just come and find us, we try and keep our eyes open for anyone lurking, looking like they are looking for someone.
    It would be great to meet you, there are lots of us at all different stages of our journeys pre op to 3 years out so come along, you will be very welcome. Just ask for the streamline group at reception, as we let them know where we are so they can point you in the right direction.

    Hope to see you tomorrow if you can make it.

    Note the Southampton Saturday meeting is 3/9 and monthly and I don’t think it’s on next week.
