Thank you for taking an interest in the Giffnock NWR Group which has been established for around twenty seven years.   Membership is drawn from the South side of Glasgow, Barrhead, Giffnock and its surrounding suburbs. Members are a diverse group from all walks of life and interests.

Six monthly programmes provide a wide range of discussion topics. We also try to include speaker slots in each six month programme.  . . Add-on activities include walks, eating out, and visits to places of interest. See some pics in the Gallery. **see list below

Our group are a lively bunch, and enjoy a good discussion which can sometimes go off at a tangent, all adding to the fun.

If you are looking for an opportunity to meet with other women in your area please contact us.  We would be delighted to welcome you to either our monthly  coffee mornings or one of our meetings.

Please do get in touch via the website contact form.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
