Welcome to Lakeland Businesswomen’s Network


Join us at glorious Lakeside Hotel in Newby Bridge for what promises to be an amazing evening. We’re delighted to welcome Westmorland Gazette cartoonist, Colin Shelbourn, who will be helping us to get creative at Christmas and there’ll be gift stalls galore so you can do a bit of last minute festive shopping, too. If you bring your cossie and towel, you’ll also be able to enjoy a dip in the pool or a spot of relaxation in the sauna! All that plus mulled wine and mince pies – don’t miss out.

Free to LBN members and just £5 (on the door) for guests with profits going to our two charities. Booking essential – see you there!

A brilliantly supportive network with women at its heart

LBN is a networking group run by and for businesswomen in the South Lakeland area. We hold regular meetings on the third Thursday of every month – sometimes in collaboration with other likeminded organisations – on a variety of themes and are often able to secure interesting speakers to inspire and inform.


Become a member and enjoy all these benefits

Membership of LBN is available for an annual contribution of just £40 and includes a dedicated member profile page on the LBN website, free entry to our monthly events plus networking and skills development workshops. We are now receiving support from the Cumbria Growth Hub and Rural Women’s Network through a special funding programme that’s enabling us to offer even greater opportunities to our members through training, consultation and development which will help us to build a stronger group with improved links to other networking organisations.


Find out more by attending a meeting for FREE
