THE founder of a social club for single ladies in the prime of their life is hoping to get women from Cumbernauld and Kilsyth involved.

Liz Gilogley (52), of Moodiesburn, founded the Single Ladies Club a couple of years ago as a support network for ladies who find themselves on their own after many years.

She said: “Really it came about because in this day and age everybody is doing the social networking thing; my daughters are always on Facebook, Bebo and Twitter. I wondered if I could do something that was social networking for women who were where I was – in late 40s, came out of a long partnership or marriage and found themselves at a halfway stage. There are eight million women on their own over the age of 40 in Britain. I felt they needed a network.”

Liz set up the organisation and created a forum-based website for them to chat and arrange meet ups. The club now has 60 members.
