I joined Ladies Circle after I moved to a new area, with a 2 week old baby. To begin with after having my first baby I found it hard to meet people and make friends, after a while I got into the swing of going to baby groups, one of which happened to be run by a member of Hebden Bridge Ladies Circle. After a few months they were running a baby shopping event and I was persuaded to go along. At the event I met three other members of Ladies Circle who all had babies around the same age as my son. Very soon I started going along to meetings and joined not long after.

That was now 10 years ago and since then I have done so many things with Ladies Circle that I wouldn’t have done otherwise and made many firm friends all over the country. In the last 10 years I have been Hebden Bridge Circle chair twice and treasurer seven times. I have also been Area 3 Treasurer 2013-2015 and Area 3 chair 2017-2018.

I have recently moved again to a new area and was surprised that there was no active circle in my new area, so have decided I need to do something about that!! Watch this space!

My inspirational quote is from Winnie the Pooh! “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think!”
