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

Knitting Group – would you like to help?

This year we are knitting for babies a little closer to home.  The Salvation Army have a great need for baby clothes at HMP Bronzefield, and also at their Baby Bank at Ilford.  This winter they would also like hats, scarves and blankets for babies, children and homeless adults in Essex.

We need buttons for baby clothes, wool, ladies to wind balls of wool from cones and more knitters – all tools provided. 

Please call Marion Pitchley on 05 62 08 37 93 or give your donations to a committee member.

Second-hand Greetings Cards:  Pamela Savage  has requested that we start to collect our old greetings cards
(Christmas, birthday, anniversary, etc).  These are very useful when our ‘crafty ladies’ recycle them into beautiful new objects!  Kindly bring along anything you think could be recycled to the next Ladies Lunch.  Thank you!
