Louis Grima is providing free friendship across Melbourne’s north and west to bring together like-minded people and give people an opportunity to enhance their social life, with the Fusion Friendship Group.

After running a single’s dance club more than 20 years ago, the passion returned for Louis to bring people together and seek out new friendships from himself and for others, causing him to found this group.

He said the group provides an opportunity for anybody to make new friends in safe environments.

“We’re mainly into music, dancing, and dinners,” he said. “We’re out every Saturday and Sunday.”

“There’s no cut off on age, we’re open to anyone, but it’s more suited for 45 and up.”

“This group’s aim is to bring together and give the opportunity to people to enhance their social life and to meet new and interesting like-minded people. Our events will predominantly be held in Melbourne’s western and northern suburbs. If this sounds like you, don’t die wondering and hop on board.”

The group hosts a number of events, with anywhere from 10 to 40 people attending each time.

Mr Grima said the group’s strong mix of people from all over Melbourne’s north and west means the group has events all across the region, but most notably in the north, with Music Land and the Darebin RSL proving popular venues.

To cater for older members and regular workers, they have Sunday events typically running from 3pm to 6pm.
