We need You

Ranches Ladies Tuesday Coffee Mornings

New Friendships start here

Ranches Ladies’ Tuesday Coffee Mornings are a great way to meet up with old friends and start new friendships. Our slogan  ” New Friendships Start Here” is the reason we get together and enjoy each others’ company.

Recently we have seen the numbers attending our Tuesday coffee mornings start to dwindle and there is a rising concern about the viability of our weekly Coffee Morning.

We rent the room on an annual basis and offer a guarantee of 30 ladies per week for catering purposes.  (We cannot hire the room without catering). We are just slipping under this number and urge you all to come along on a Tuesday and bring a friend to keep our Coffee mornings thriving and to continue our purpose of offering friendship to all women in Dubai.

If you have any great ideas for our programme of speakers, events or demonstrations please get in touch with Connie, Carole or any committee member. Even if it is just an idea of something you would like to see. If you happen to know someone who would be happy to present a talk to us then we will be delighted to speak to them.
