Women welcome

A WOMEN'S group in the region is encouraging more people to join their ranks- in the aftermath of a successful International Women's Day celebration locally this week.

A party was held in the New Oriental Restaurant on Tuesday, organised by D&G International Women’s Group and attended by 65 members.
And they are offering the hand of friendship to women from across the region.
Dumfries and Galloway Multicultural Association chairwoman Yen Hongmei Jin said: “It does not matter where you come from, the International Women’s Group is here for all women.
“Please feel free to come and join us.”
The vision is to ensure all women in the community to have a visible voice by providing learning opportunities by accessing a wide range of diverse activities.
Activities are varied and include yoga classes, food and hygiene training, a community garden club, fundraising, mentoring, job searching, creative writing, trips and more.
A spokeswoman said: “The main objective is to encourage women from all backgrounds to come together and share experiences, by providing them with wide range of diverse activities that encourage personal, social, health and well-being, emotional and spiritual development to improve quality of life of all women.”
They meet every Thursday, 11 am – 1 pm, at the DGMA building in Old Assembly Close, Dumfries.
