Welcome to Thirsk Ladies Group

Thirsk Ladies Group was originally started by a small group of business women in Thirsk who decided to get together in an effort to promote local businesses, and attract visitors to our beautiful market town.

Over the years the group has grown and evolved, we now have over 300 ladies who regularly receive our newsletter and volunteer at our various events throughout the year.

Supported by Thirsk Business Association the Ladies group run events throughout the year aimed at visitors and locals alike to raise the profile of the town and also to raise funds for Thirsk Christmas lights.

The Christmas lights have also evolved over the years and now culminate in a weekend of activities at the end of November including, ‘The Big Switch On’ a free show in the Market place, a 3 day Christmas Fayre at Thirsk & Sowerby Town Hall, and beautiful, simple Christmas lights enhancing the Market Place and surrounding roads throughout the festive period.

Our ladies are no longer just local business women, they are from all walks of life and many different ages from their twenties to their nineties, which means we have a diverse and creative group working for the good of Thirsk.

If you would like more information on how you can help, or if you just want to join in and make new friends send us an email and we’ll include you in our newsletters mailing list.
