RL Tuesday Social Morning

 Our Social Morning will meet this week from 9.30-12 noon in Baker Finch Room at Arabian Ranches Golf Club. Please note the programme starts at 10.30 am.

1 October 2019:  Spirals Hair Salon

Quick Styles Workshop

The Team from Spirals Salon will host a hands on, interactive workshop at RL Tuesday Social Morning to demonstrate a selection of “On the Run” hairstyles showing simple styling techniques on a willing volunteer.  RL members will then form groups to practice the styles on each other with the guidance of a Spirals’ team member! This should be a fun programme and will be followed by a Q&A session.

Last Week’s Speaker


On Tuesday 24th September Ranches Ladies were fascinated by Christina Balhui, a registered Hypnotherapist. Her talk was about hypnosis and hypnotherapy and she debunked the common misconceptions about hypnosis and emphasised the scientifically proven benefits of hypnotherapy.

Christina is generously offering a free 20 minute consultation for all current RL members and also 15% off her hourly rate. It is definitely a good idea to speak to her about any of your concerns, from weight issues to a broken heart.

Forthcoming Social Mornings

The RL Big Circles Morning is next week!  All our many Circles will be showcased and you will be able to meet the Circle Leaders and sign up for any Circles you find interesting. You must be a member of Ranches Ladies to sign up for any Circles and you will be required to show your membership card.


Please volunteer as one of our Meet and Greet ladies if you have a little time once a month. You will be asked to help out at roughly one Tuesday Social Morning a month and your role will be to show new members around, explain about the Circles, find them a seat with a group and make sure they have coffee and someone to talk to.
