RL Tuesday Social Morning

Our Social Morning will meet this week from 9.30-12 noon in Birdie’s Bar, Arabian Ranches Golf Club. Please note the programme starts at 10.30 am.
January 15th 2018 Talk: Elizma Hoffman of YOUnique Beauty

The word Fascia is new to the beauty and health industry but not new to our bodies. At school we learned about the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and connective tissue. But we were never taught about fascia. Elizma is trained in massage and beauty and will tell us about this new physiological concept at the RL Social Morning.

From 9.30am Elizma will be offering free 5 minute neck and shoulder massages before her talk.


Access to Birdies Bar at Arabian Ranches Golf Club is behind the Golf Club.  Walk through the foyer and a buggy will take you across the golf course to Birdie’s, if needed, or it is only a short walk from The Golf Club.

Al Ihsan

After our visit to Ajman in November last year it was clear that there are many ways we can help and your donations are vital.  We are now collecting unopened toiletries (hotel freebies are ideal), packaged cakes and biscuits, and sweets and goodies for the children. In the future we will ask for dried, canned and packaged goods. Your small acts of generosity make a very big difference. Please bring everything along to one of the Tuesday social mornings to be collected by Jeannette. Thank you.

Ladies Lunch 20th January

On the 20th January Maha from My Kitchen Secrets will host a ladies lunch at her home in Al Barari from 12pm. For 150dhs you will be treated to a delicious meal of authentic home cooked dishes from Syria prepared by Maha who, you will remember, did a fabulous demonstration at our Tuesday Social Morning in September last year.

Please let Liz Stark know immediately if you would like to attend, so she and Maha can cater for this marvellous occasion, by email at ranches.ladies@gmail.com.
