What we're about

Ladies Wot Lunch is a social group for women in the North West, we are based in the Ribble Valley. Most of our meetings are between Gisburn and Preston, encompassing the whole Ribble Valley and Blackburn, but we throw an occasional Manchester, Lytham or Windermere meet in occasionally.

Activities usually involve meals out, but may also include coffee mornings and the occasional cinema or theatre trip. This group is aimed at women over 30 who enjoy making new friends. There is a big age range but we are all young at heart and there is a lot of natter and giggles!

The primary focus of the group is for mid-week, day time based activities. So if you don’t work, work part-time or from home, perhaps you’re new to the area, a stay home mum, an empty nester or just at a loose end then come and join us and make some new friends!

The group is limited to 50 members, and for this reason non active members are periodically removed but are always welcome to return!


There is a charge of £2 per person for each meeting attended. This covers the annual fee charged by MeetUp to run a group (this will hopefully revert to £1 - we've had to put it up to cover the MeetUp fees for the last year while we haven't been able to meet, and unfortunately MeetUp were still charging full fees) .

We only have two rules:

1) Please make sure your RSVP is up to date. If you have RSVPd "yes" and can't make it to a meeting then please update your RSVP. If we reserve a table and have a lot of no shows it is embarrassing, plus we have often waited half an hour or more before ordering only for people not to show up. 3 no show strikes and you're out! :o)

2) In the interest of keeping our membership current, anyone who hasn't logged in for 3 months or more will be removed from the group. However, if this happens to you and your absence was unintentional then of course there will be nothing to stop you from joining again. Organisers may also remove people who log in but never attend meetings.
