Circles Coffee Morning – Tuesday 11th October

Don’t miss our Circles Coffee Morning from 10.30am this Tuesday 11th October. It will be a great opportunity to meet the circle leaders and find out more about what’s on offer at RL! Current and new members welcome.

Please note, there are roadworks and road closures in the area of the 2 roundabouts which connect the back exit of Arabian Ranches to Studio City and Motor City and it is not possible to cross over directly to Studio City. Probably the best route to reach Studio One Hotel is via Hessa Street (D61). You can use GPS to guide you. More details of suggested route have been sent on the RL members WhatsApp group.
