Lancing-based site for ME sufferers world-wide. The site is run by Ally Petty, who has lived in Lancing and Sompting since she was about 2. Whilst studying in her first year of Sixth Form at Boundstone, she became ill with what is now known as ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). Thanks to the invaluable understanding of some teachers at the time, she was able to take the time out, and was able to go back and study both part-time at Boundstone and Northbrook respectively which allowed her to work on her recovery without compromising the future.

The original site entitled ME Friends is a homepage of sorts where people can come and read her story, find links to other ME websites globally, and more.

But the BRAINFOG!! forum and chatroom (named after the baffling foggy brain symptom …..) is where all the action is at. Ally first launched BRAINFOG!! back in August of 2001 and it has since gone on to become one of the most popular forum and chat rooms on the internet for this illness. They currently have over 300 members from all around the world, a number which is growing by the day with hundreds of posts being made daily from the serious to the light hearted.



The Association promotes the development of the local Community and provides, at the Centre, a meeting place for a range of activities including a Play Group, Mother and Toddler Group, Youth Club, Bingo and Dancing Groups as well as social and leasure activities.

The Centre has rooms and facilities available to hire and has good kitchen facilities, disabled facilities and a large car park.

or telephone 01903 208824 (office open Mon/Wed/Fri 10am-12 noon or leave message on answerphone).

A message to Lancing and Sompting residents from Derek Carr of the National Blood Service:

Recent sessions have been very successful (and very busy!). At the last session held at Lancing Parish Hall 168 people attended and we were able to collect 150 donations. The great support shown by local people means that the donations collected at the last session will help at least 300 patients in local hospitals receive the treatments they need.(at least 2 people benefit from each donation)

The continuous hospital demand for blood means we have to collect 10,000 donations EVERY DAY, nationally. Without the help of local communities and local business, (either by attending or through advertising our blood collection sessions) we would find it very difficult to meet these demands.

A massive thankyou to all local residents and businesses for their ongoing support and for 'Doing something amazing'.

Kindest Regards
National Blood Service

Perhaps most famous for its landmark chapel, which looks out over the A27 Shoreham flyover, and the Adur Valley, Lancing College itself is an historic Independant Boarding and Day School, taking both boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 18.

Many thanks to Lancing college for providing the superb photographs (numbers 3 and 4)
