Established 1st December, 1999.

Our first Lupus gathering was only small but was great all the same. We met at the Fuschia Farm on Lillico straight as one of our newest members lives close by to this/her beautiful family owned business. 
Always a great feed, along with fabulous company always makes the fuschia farm a favourite place to visit. 
Due to the members present at the March get together, many were unable to attend in April so we voted to skip April and make a catch up day in May. We have encouraged members past and present to bring along with any new members who would like to have a chat and a chin wag. 
We are already starting to build capacity with 2 new members at the March luncheon with the possibility of a few more at the May lunch.
I am looking forward to rebuilding the North West Support Group so we all have people we can connect with and call when things get us down.

Kind regards
