An organisation focusing on women working in the world of property is planning to host a networking event this week.

The Lancashire and Cumbria branch of Women in Property held its inaugural event in July and is inviting people to its Christmas networking event in Lancaster on Wednesday.

The evening will begin with ice skating at Lancaster on Ice followed by drinks and bratwurst at the venue's Tipi Bar.

Lucie Barnes, from lawyers Baines Wilson, who helped form the branch said: “After the success of our first networking event, we wanted to follow up with a Christmas get together. For those who haven’t yet been to our networking events, this is a great opportunity to come and meet other members in a relaxed environment, get to know your branch and chat with the committee. We welcome all women who work in property across Cumbria and Lancashire to come and join us for some festive fun.”

Women in Property is an organisation designed to create opportunities, expand knowledge and inspire change for women working in the property and construction industries.
