GOA (Girls Out Alone)

This recently formed group, open to all, plans to meet on an ad hoc basis
 - watch out for details and let us know what you would like to take part in.


In September a group met to discuss topics raised by the film Victoria & Abdul, a historical drama about the extraordinary, unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s life which enables her to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaim her humanity.
It didn't seem t omatter that some had not seen the film - drinks and nibbles alongside lively discussion filled the evening.

From July 2016 magazine:

GNO to become GOA

Tuesday 14th June saw the inaugural meeting of the Walmersley (and wider) GNO – Girls’ Night Out.  18 of us met in the bar in Owen’s Restaurant in Ramsbottom and were soon transported upstairs to complete an enjoyable evening of eating, drinking and being merry together.

There were ladies from up the road, down the road, middle of the road and Prestwich – but we didn’t mind at all!  We shared our expertise in choosing wine.  ‘Just a small lager,’ soon became ‘Oh, make that a large glass of white’ and we even managed to get the chef to swap his delicious pepper sauce for plain gravy.  No airs and graces about us!  (But we did draw the line at asking for a piece of bread to mop it up with).

Some ladies eschewed the most delicious ice-cream (raspberry panacotta) for posh coffee.  And finally, we all agreed that we needed to do this again.  So we drew up a list of places to eat, drink and be merry within reasonable distance of Walmersley (it’s a long list).  And are definitely decided that this must happen again.

We’ll try to change the day each time to avoid those who have
commitments on particular
evenings.  Suggestions for where to go are readily encouraged.  Watch the press for news of the next GOA (Girls’ Out Alone), probably towards the end of July.  You have been warned!
