“Gardeners Question Time” with our good friend Liz Maley-Craig

gardenDo you ever imagine sitting outside in your garden surrounded by beautiful fragrant flowers? Do you then realise the dream doesn’t match the reality? If you answered yes to either of those questions this week’s programme is for you!  Liz knows enough about gardening to give us all green fingers. Bring your questions, limp leaves, troublesome trees or sulky shrubs and Liz will attempt to put us right.


  •  The Festive Bazaar, organised by Hayet, raised over 11,000 dirhams, including the raffle for Ranches Ladies funds.  Congratulations to all our vendors, to the raffle organiser Sue Fulham and her team. to the Golf Club for sponsoring the room and doing the setup, to Lorna for setting up and loaning her lovely Christmas decorations, to all the ladies who helped in any way and to all the ladies who came and bought raffle tickets and bought from our vendors.  It was a wonderful morning.  Thank you all.   Carole
