Ranches Ladies Newsletter



The summer holiday period is approaching but unlike other years most UAE residents will be staying put in the region .  Ranches Ladies has a number of online circles still meeting and members will be continuing to paint, sew, make mosaics and enjoy all their crafts.

Although Dubai is gradually returning to normal Ranches Ladies cannot resume its activities, meetings and circles until we have received government approval from the CDA.  As a result we cannot resume our Tuesday coffee mornings or organise the usual circles.  Many Ranches Ladies will be meeting friends informally but please understand RL cannot organise any meetings yet.  Please bear with us and continue with your online activities.

We will let you know as soon as Ranches Ladies can meet face to face again


Please continue to email circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com with all your pictures, suggestions and activities.

Once a year, with the approval of the CDA, RL has sent a donation to Al Ihsan.  As RL has not yet been authorised to resume our activities we cannot apply to the CDA to make a donation until later in the year.
