1st August 2019
Our remit of cover is Suffolk & Norfolk and so far we’ve been successful in setting up GA teams in Lowestoft & Beccles BUT!!! we are always happy to talk to you about setting up a team in your area. So if you think you’d like to become part of a new GA team then please do get in touch and we’ll get the ball rolling - EXCITING TIMES!!!!
We’ve also decided to create a new arm to our Garden Angel project, it’s something we think will appeal to women who have previously not been able to commit to offering their time on a weekly basis but would really like to be a GA - who wouldn’t ! We’re doing it now because we have been receiving a few requests from schools and care homes, asking if we can turn their open spaces into a place people want to be. But we’ve been pushed to our limits with these jobs because they’re not as simple as gardens.
SOOOOOooooooooooooo by increasing the number of women on our books that we can call uponwhen needed to do a few hours we should be able to help more people And that can only to be a good thing - YaY.
If you’d like to sign up then please drop us an e-mail to email@example.com OR send a message via our Facebook page (the link’s in our contact section)

We are SSSSSSSSSSSSOoooooooooo grateful to EVERYONE who believed enough in us and popped their tokens into our slot - There are 3 prizes available, up to £1,000, £2,000 and £4,000 and as one of the other groups requests was for another defibulator for Beccles, we very much doubt we’ll come first
BUT! where ever we come we WILL be able to plant our second SHE SHED - And that’s REALLY exciting!!!
Apparently we won’t know until June (ish) where we came but as soon as we find out we’ll let you all know
Thank you ALL again for all your support, It’s been great to see how many of you also believe Women Like Me IS GREAT x
Awards for All - National Lottery Funding
We are extremely pleased to announce we have recently secured National Lottery Awards for All funding to help build new and worthwhile experiences /groups/networks for Women to create and participate in, these activities will focus on increasing their positive well-being and help grow their feelings of self-worth that will enable them to enjoy a sense of increased empowerment.
Starting in the New Year, we shall be running a variety of one off workshops - from Mindfulness to Basic Car Maintenance. Setting up the first She Shed project on our allotment in Lowestoft - with every intention and desire to have a network of our sheds across Suffolk & Norfolk and increasing participation on the fantastically successful Garden Angel project we set up earlier in the year.
We will create a safe + friendly environment to help all Women Like Me members feel better equipped and supported to live full and enriched lives and to help them gain and increase a greater self of Positive Well-Being. We will work on positive outcomes - we will celebrate all successes and failures because TOGETHER we will Learn Laugh and Grow.
