January 29th January 2019 Talk: Yvette Judge
The Emirates Literature Festival 2019

Yvette will talk to us about the guests who will be gracing the platform at this year’s Emirates Festival of Literature and tell us about this year’s competition entries. This is not to be missed if you are a book lover.


Jeannette will be visiting the Al Ihsan distribution centre in Ajman this week to take your gifts of toiletries, packaged cakes and sweets.  She has sorted and bagged all your donations. If any of you would like to join Jeannette on the trip please speak to her at the front desk at the RL social morning on Tuesday or email her on ranches.ladies@gmail.com.

If you haven’t donated yet please bring your unused toiletries (hotel and airline freebies are ideal), packaged cakes and biscuits and packets of sweets for the children on Tuesday.

Thank you to Martine Nates, qualified acupuncturist and certified mindful meditation practitioner, for her relaxing presentation at RL social morning last week. She taught us her 3 Minute Breathing Space technique to help in stressful situations.
