Welcome new Belles!

Meeting recap - The Sexy Meeting

Easily the funniest, most entertaining, and informative meeting we have had since… ever? Miranda Kane shared her experiences of being a sex-worker-turned-comedian and had us laughing and asking all kinds of questions. Did you like the meeting? Or maybe it wasn't your cup of tea... share your thoughts in the Facebook group! You can read all about it on our blog

Meeting Fairies needed!

Get involved in making our meetings GREAT! You can help by bringing treats (home-made or shop-bought, we love it all!), or by helping with setting up and clearing away our room. It's a quick job that only takes about 10 minutes, and you can sign up for a single meeting or for many.

Next up: March, the Dancing meeting!


Shake, shake, shake! For this month’s meeting we’ll have a dance off to celebrate International Women’s Day - we'll have a belly dance instructor showing us how to get those hips moving. Wear comfortable shoes and an outfit you can move in! If dancing is not your thing, please come and join us anyway: we'll have a lot of news to share and you can always have a bit of cake while the others dance!
