Have you booked a place on the Younger Women Together in Edinburgh this weekend?


Booked a place on the Younger Women’s Together event in Edinburgh but worried about going alone?


Considering booking a place but not sure?


Every year we receive queries from women, including concerns about coming along to the event on their own. Feedback from previous events has said how helpful it was to talk before the event.
This thread is a chance for you to say hello and “meet” others attending the Younger Women Together. I will check in regularly and if you have any questions do let me know and I will do my best to answer them.


Look forward to meeting you later this week
