Eid Mubarak!

Good morning Ranches Ladies!

Eid Al Fitr is due to start on Tuesday and we wish you all a very Happy Eid.

Whatever you are planning during the Eid break, have fun and stay safe.

Keeping up to date

We don’t yet know when our regular Tuesday social mornings will be able to restart. We hope this will become possible as COVID cases drop and more people are vaccinated.

In the meantime, please pop along to LARTE restaurant in Studio One Hotel on Tuesday mornings from 10.30 – 11.30am to meet Julia or Jeanette and find out about membership and activities.

You can also email ranches.ladies@gmail.com to keep up to date with developments.
