National Women’s Register (NWR) is a social organisation for women and has groups across the UK that connect women who are interested in everything and talk about anything! From lively discussions, to share ideas, meet other women and make new friends.
If you enjoy talking and look forward to meeting new people then why not see whether NWR is what you are looking for? Groups generally meet once or twice a month mainly in members’ homes and in the evening although some groups meet in the daytime. Programmes are planned in advance and provide the opportunity to discuss interesting topics, exchange ideas and offer varying opinions; the conversation never dries up! Some Groups have separate special interest groups such as Book Clubs and Walking Groups and also add a social dimension with outings to the theatre, garden visits and meals out.
Lee-on-the-Solent hosts the nearest NWR group. They can be contacted via the NWR website, see link below.

About 1 in 8 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. If it’s detected early, treatment is more successful and there’s a good chance of recovery.
Breast screening aims to find breast cancers early. It uses an X-ray test called a mammogram that can spot cancers when they’re too small to see or feel.
But there are some risks of breast cancer screening that you should be aware of.
As the likelihood of getting breast cancer increases with age, all women aged 50 to 70 and registered with a GP are automatically invited for breast cancer screening every 3 years.
In the meantime, if you’re worried about breast cancer symptoms, such as a lump or area of thickened tissue in a breast, or you notice that your breasts look or feel different from what’s normal for you, don’t wait to be offered screening – see your GP.
Drop-in centre or pre-booked appointments available to anyone with concerns about cancer, located at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham.
