The National Women’s Register (NWR) exists to provide mentally stimulating meetings, activities and events across the country. I am always staggered when I receive a weekly email from our National Office about what I get for my annual £25 subscription. NWR members have free access to dozens of talks and activities. I recently joined in a fascinating live virtual walking tour of Edinburgh. I have already booked similar tours of York and Manchester, as well as numerous other free talks such as Girls in Science, or the hidden world of Hatton Garden. Now that restrictions are beginning to ease Chineham and Old Basing NWR have restarted our monthly lunch meetings, beginning outside with a maximum of six.
We are very democratic, and everyone has a say in our programme, and takes turns in leading or hosting meetings. As soon as we are able, we will have our monthly Monday afternoon discussion meetings indoors and the Thursday evening monthly Book Group. In the meantime, Zoom meetings keep our Group in touch. Some of our members used to take an annual 3 day break across the Channel but resumption of that always-hilarious trip is on hold.
If you enjoy lively conversation and broadened horizons whilst having fun and meeting people (according to the current guidance on social contact) please look at www.nwr.org.uk, or contact our current local organiser Karen via firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 01256 328488 for a chat.
