About Us

Réans, 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

Ladies Lunch Club Annual General Meeting February 2014

An important subject for the LLC in 2014

We appreciate that this time of the year is very busy for everyone but ask you to give the LLC five minutes of your time so that we can prepare for the AGM in February 2014.



Patricia Colan started the club in 2008 and it has grown from strength to strength with now over 100 members, 40 to 50 attending the lunches each month. 
We unfortunately lost the valuable help of Dawn Johnson, our Chairwoman, when she moved back to the UK and although we are succeeding in keeping everything going we would like some help. 


We would appreciate occasional help and ask everyone to let us know what they are willing to assist with, but also we need some additional committee members to lighten the load.  We meet just once a month so nothing to arduous and we work together as a team to share the responsibilities.



Sue Sullivan, 




Jane Cooper





 and Pippa Brown 


are happy to stand for 2014, Jane to continue as Secretary and Pippa as Treasurer. 


Ginster Michel has done excellent work setting up the blog and Facebook page and continues to administer it and has agreed to stand for the committee to continue with this.  She has been nominated by Jane Cooper and seconded by Sue Sullivan.  

Sue Treeby, 



although having completed a three year term has generously agreed to continue if we do not have any other members joining the committee.

So we are looking for nominations! Please don'’t be shy. 
If you wish to discuss it, any of the current committee would be most happy to talk to you.  


Secondly, many of you have suggested that the name of the club should embrace the multi-national essence of the group.  Some have suggested we should refer to ourselves as women rather than ladies or perhaps the name should reflect the country we live in, femmes rather than ladies.  We are therefore asking for ideas for the name of the club.  If you wish it to remain the same, let us know, if you have a great new idea for a name, similarly let us know.

Sue Sullivan and Jane Cooper (secretary) are happy to continue as we are and Ginster has very kindly agreed to handle the IT; the Facebook page and the Blog. 
But we will have places to fill.  

It was hard to find people to stand this year and it will be a problem in January unless people stand up and volunteer.
  


Any member of the LLC is welcome to volonteer to be elected.
Please contact any member of the committee at your next Luncheon or directly at LLC secretary by mail:
