    Hi

    Ash
    Sorry for the delay but I have been away and had computer trouble. A pumpers get together is just a social evening in the pub for anyone who lives near to meet up , have a chat and swop tips, etc. Our first meeting seemed to please all 11 who turned up. Some came with partners, some by themselves. 2 girls were just chosing their pump so hopefully we gave them some confidence.

    It is easy to set up. Just make up some sort of notice and give it to your local diabetic dept. to display. to your local diabetic group to put in their newsletter and in any nearby doctors surgery. choose a date, tell the publican and just turn up.

    Everyone who turned up agreed that their email could go to all the other members of the group (essential) and I shall forward any messages and let them know the next date at the end of February.

    Do have a go at setting one up. We all agreed it was very useful, particularly if you have a new pump.
