Sad News



We have had very sad news from our dear RL member, Anne Archibald.  Her beloved husband Hugh has passed away in hospital and is going to be hugely missed by Anne, all his friends and his colleagues.  Anne and Hugh enjoyed 40 years of happiness and travelled the world together.

God bless you both

Keep in Touch



Mandy has sent this beautiful picture of East Preston beach in West Sussex during the glorious weather in UK last week.  There are still many RL members in UK waiting to return home. We are looking forward to seeing you all back soon.

Please continue to email circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com with all your pictures, suggestions and activities.  There has been a complete re-opening of malls and businesses in Dubai so we are now able to move around with more freedom. However, social distancing is still in force and we hope all RL members will to continue to keep themselves safe.
