We are a group of 22 friendly, mostly retired, women who meet on average a couple of times a month on various weekday evenings at each others’ houses.
Our meetings are very varied, some light-hearted, some less so; our programme can include investigations of various topics, from current affairs to women in art, literature or science to what we eat for breakfast or acting a whodunnit. Meetings where a speaker is invited to talk are always well attended. We enjoy social events as well, a walk, a meal, a theatre trip, our Christmas party involves food, drink and often a craft session (more successful for some of us than others!).
We have an active Book Group which meets 6 times a year, a Supper Club for members and their partners, but this does not exclude single members, and a monthly daytime outing that we call NWR + which could be a visit to a museum, garden, concert or to hear a speaker for example.
Why not come along and give us a try. You would be made very welcome. It’s a great way to meet new people and have a lot of fun.
