  •  The sum of 1,100 dirhams were raised for Ranches Ladies funds from the garden party in Carole’s villa on 13th of December. Carole would like to thank all the ladies who made donations and all the ladies who so kindly baked and brought delicious food for us all to enjoy.
  • Julia Handley has offered to be our new PR co-ordinator in the new year and will head a small team looking after Flyers, Facebook, Instagram and PR. Steffi Graf has already offered to run Facebook and anyone willing to help Julia please contact her at or see her at Tuesday meetings. She will liaise a handover with Sue Fulham who has been our PR Co-ordinator for the past few years.
  •  Donations needed for our monthly raffle held on the second Tuesday of each month.  We no longer have vendors so raffle prizes needed.  Prizes to Jacqui Daair who co-ordinates the raffle.
  •  For the first Tuesday in Feb we would like a volunteer to talk about her country for a few minutes.  This can be a slide show, dance, talk, customs etc of your country. See Carole or write to
  • Connie Wheeler will be taking over from Sue Fulham as Programme Co-ordinator in Jan – Feb.  Any ideas for programmes see Connie or myself.
