The York M.E. Community website

www.york-me-community.org/

This has been set up by Bill Clayton, from Fulford on the outskirts of York, who hopes it will have many of the characteristics of the ‘StreetLife’ family of websites. Bill writes: “This site will only be as good as the support given by those that visit it, adding their ideas and experiences, so please spread the word that we are here to help each other and raise awareness of ME in York. I would like to give a huge thanks to my brother Ian who has put this site together for me, with me adding the content, but now it’s pretty much over to you to bring it to life.”
