March 26th 2019: Dr Jennifer Kasirsky MD

The HPV Virus

Dr Kasirsky is a doctor specialising in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the new Mediclinic Parkview Hospital. She will be talking to us about that hugely important subject of teen health and specifically the HPV virus and the need for vaccinations. 


Please contact Sue Fulham on ranches.ladies@gmail.com if you think you will be in London on Monday 8th July.  Sue is organising the London Reunion of Ranches Ladies and she would love to see as many of you as possible. Further details will be announced nearer the time but everyone is invited! Keep an eye on Facebook for updates and let Sue know if there is a possibility you can make it.

On Tuesday 19th March, Maria Isabel Beykovsky gave an interesting presentation to Ranches Ladies.  Maria is a personal stylist and colour consultant whose mission is to enable us to make the best of our wardrobes by choosing the right colors and styles that truly reflect our personalities. Maria gave us the incredible insight that people are judged on their appearance within 7 seconds of meeting someone, and rarely completely positively! But it is entirely within our power to enhance the way we look.  Maria offers a range of packages and is offering a discount on her colour assessment for RL members. Look at her FB page #styleinthesand for more information

Al Ihsan

Tuesday is the last day for collection so please bring the ingredients for bread making, which could include oil, flour, salt and sugar, with you to the golf club reception desk or upstairs to the Baker Finch room on Tuesday 26th.   If you would like to help bagging up or come along to Ajman with us please get in touch with Connie (as Jeanette is unwell) on ranches.ladies@gmail.com or speak to her on Tuesday morning.

Today is our Mediterranean inspired Ladies Lunch.  The lunch is taking place at Liz’s house.  Thank you Liz for saving the day as Maha has had to cancel her offer to cook. It is bound to be a huge success.
