Ranches Ladies Newsletter

Circles Coffee Morning

The Circles Coffee Morning last Tuesday was a great success. Many existing and new RL members came along to find out about all the activities on offer, with many signing up to join circle groups.

Many thanks to Jackie, Josephine, Hayet, other committee members and all the Circle Leaders who helped in setting up and organising the event, and to Larte Restaurant at Studio One Hotel for hosting us.

Tuesday Mornings

Ranches Ladies are meeting every Tuesday morning for coffee at Larte Restaurant in Studio One Hotel, Studio City (across the roundabout from the back entrance of Arabian Ranches 1) from 10.30am – 12pm.

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 routes to reach Studio One Hotel from Arabian Ranches are via D61 (Hessa Street) or D54. More details of suggested routes have been sent on the RL members WhatsApp group.

Membership Renewals

If you have not yet renewed your membership, or you would like to join, you can do this at Larte Cafe, Studio One Hotel, Studio City on any Tuesday morning from 10.30am to 12 noon.

Please bring completed membership form, your Emirates ID (or passport if ID unavailable) and fee of 120 AED. Get more information and download the form on the membership section of our website: Ranches Ladies Membership and Renewals

If you are unable to get to Larte on Tuesday morning to do your renewal, you can ask a friend to bring your form, copy of your ID and membership fee.
