Cumbria Celebrating the Diamond Anniversary in Style

On Wednesday 26th February 2020, members from Carlisle, Egremont and Kendal branches celebrated 60 years of the NWR. This iconic event was held at Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery, Carlisle. We celebrated with a delicious afternoon tea and at 2 pm we took part in the live streaming of speeches across the country and joined the national toast with a glass of Prosecco. 

Claire Sleightholm, the Tullie House Curator delivered a presentation on “Women in the 1960’s,” which was fascinating and had everyone reminiscing with stories of their own. We then had the opportunity to look round Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery. During the afternoon members were also interviewed by Radio Cumbria and That’s TV Cumbria.

Our hope is that women will continue to join NWR and benefit from it as we do.  or email the Area Organiser for Cumbria, Val Bassindale  at  [email protected]
