About Us

RĂ©ans, Armagnac, 32 Gers, France
Our objective is to promote friendship between women of all nationalities living in Gascony, SW France, to share our interests and to offer help when needed. The Club started in 2008, with twenty English ladies living in Gascony, using a foreign language and experiencing a new life. Since then, several different groups have been added and our membership has grown into the hundreds, with new ladies moving to the area and ladies who have lived here a while, who have discovered us, who want to make new acquaintances and discover new areas of interest. Today we have eleven nationalities, and our speaking/working language is English. The GLC meets on the second Tuesday of each month, excluding July and August.Every member receives an email each month, giving the name of the restaurant, the chosen, menu and a booking form. In 2014, we became a non-profit making Association, known as Ladies Lunch Club de l’Armagnac and was re-named in 2019 to Gascogne Ladies Club. Our annual subscription fee of 10 € is payable in January each year. Each member of the Club may participate in some or all of our various groups

Bookclub : November 2013 book choice

The book suggested for the November meeting 

on 19th is:


1276938

So as not to bombard you with book choices, I will email again in a week or so Jane’s selection of books for the December meeting.

Thanks for the delicious cake Brenda and for ‘holding’ next month’s cake!

Jane is selecting books for our December read which will fall on the 19th so perhaps we should think of a little celebratory meeting!

The October book: 
was enjoyed by all members of the club who were present at the meeting today (and one who wasn’t!). 
We found the strong characters quite interesting, each one with a different background and agenda. 
The reader follows Harold on his cathartic walk to visit his old dying colleague from Devon to Berwick on Tweed and his wife’s struggle to come to terms with his actions, their son’s problems and their marriage.  We found it a thought provoking, sensitive and entertaining read, sometimes reducing us to tears.
