RL Requests

RL is run entirely by volunteers and we rely on your kindness to give a few hours of your time each week to assist the Committee and keep Ranches Ladies running. We are currently looking for deputies to act as assistants to Jackie (Circles Coordinator), Anne (our treasurer) and to update the website with Sara (Webteam). 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.

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.
