The group offered a place to meet people of differing backgrounds, an even spattering of people both in and not in relationships, not a place to look for a relationship like the singles scene, just a way to connect with other gay women as friends and socialising!

We relocated a few years ago and were keen to make new friends in the area.. After plucking-up a little courage I made contact and the lovely D. Parties, picnics, BBQs, Pride gatherings, festivals, comedy & music gigs, pubs, clubs & restaurant meets, karting, climbing, skating, a game of rounders on the beach or a kick about in the park, W4W organise a busy social calendar catering for everyone and you’re always in great company.

We are very keen to extend our group both North and West, so even if you live a little further away please get in touch and we’ll try to arrange an event nearer to where you live.

That said, some couples were singles before they joined the group ;).

No, you’re not the “only lesbian in Essex”, but we sure know that it can feel like it.

Five years later and happily married to an amazing woman I still attend coffee mornings and the occasional social gathering.

I have made friends with a lovely bunch of women who have made a difference to my life.

This included responsibility for the operation of one ninth of Royal Mail – plus the added difficulty of severe industrial relations issues in a couple of his areas.

Ken did not shy away from the task of taking the Group from the comfort and support of Mill Hill and its postal empathy to the unknown that was Grantham, and being part of a very large TA organisation.

Think about it – you literally never have to go anywhere alone again, whether you fancy a night out, a country walk or a good old coffee morning! Only members can see the group, who’s in it, and the posts. Join us 🙂I have been a member of Women 4 Women for nearly 20 years now!

In that time the group has given me endless support.

I was fairly new in the area and had through circumstances become isolated.

I had a couple of new friends but I wanted to be able to connect with people where I didn’t have to explain or justify my sexuality as part of getting to know people.

9 years later I have met some lovely lifelong friends and had some brilliant times.
