Border Women got a very favourable mention on Woman’s Hour on Wednesday, 30th September 2015, when a letter from Holly was read out:

Shropshire is a great place to be a lesbian. There are numerous gay-friendly events, venues and activities. And most noteworthy, there is a fantastic self-sustaining network for lesbian and bisexual women from across the counties along the England – Wales border.  It’s called Border Women, it’s been running since 1988 and members organise events for all tastes and ages.
