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.
8 October 2019:  Big Circles Morning

The RL Big Circles Morning is on Tuesday from 9.30am!

All our circles are on display and you will be able to talk to the Circles’ leaders about what they offer and you can sign up there and then.

Our craft circles include silk painting, mosaics, quilting, jewellery making and water colour painting. We have 2 book circles and 4 foreign language circles along with fitness groups for Yoga, Pilates, Scottish Dancing and Walking. You can visit the cinema with a group of friends, recite poetry or play mahjong, Shanghai rummy and bridge.

And if you don’t see a circle that caters for your interest, make a suggestion to Jackie or offer to lead one yourself.

Come along on Tuesday and choose which circles you would like to join.

Last Week’s Speaker

Spirals Beauty Salon

What a wonderful morning! Thank you very much to the Spirals Beauty Salon team who transformed our Ranches Ladies on Tuesday 1st with their quick and easy hairstyles. It was inspiring and everyone has been encouraged to try the new styles for themselves.


RL is run by volunteers and we rely entirely on your kindness to give a few hours of your time each week to assist the Committee and keep Ranches Ladies running. The easiest way you can help is to 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.

Please speak to Julia on ranches.ladies@gmail.com for more information about being a meet and greet lady or talk to any of the committee if you think you can help in any other way.
