    As a member of the marvellous Deepings NWR group and a regular participator in the regional and national events – I wholeheartedly recommend this organisation for other women. I have found lasting friendships and had experiences, conversations and found new interests. We are lively minded women who enjoy coming together to discuss as well as eat, read, Zoom, walk and talk.

    NWR has been and still is a great source of friendship and support. The local meetings are a great opportunity to meet like minded women and get those ‘little grey cells’ working. With a wide range of subjects covered and walks and speakers included in the modest membership subscription it’s great value for money. The area, regional and national day conferences are a great chance to travel a little further from home and meet even more friends.

    Jill Lucas

    I was invited to a group meeting – and I was hooked – such a welcome from everyone. I enjoy the outings, quiz nights, local group meetings, meetings with other groups, and regional and national conferences.

    Janet Lyons

    Without NWR emails, Zoom and garden meetings my life would have been very lonely during lockdowns.

    Sheila Warren

    NWR saved my life. In a new town, with two small children, joining NWR was like having a new family. I am not sure what I would have done without NWR.

Larger national events such as the National Conference, Telephone Treasure Trail and The NWR Walk are arranged by the National Office and are supported by NWR volunteers. We host regular online talks & conferences with some truly inspirational speakers.
