About Us

My photo
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

Search for participants for Christmas concerts 2015

Hello LLC members, 
I - Carole Clark - know it is only August but just to give you advance notice of our aims for our traditional Christmas concerts so that you can add them to you diary..

I am delighted to tell you Riene and Stephen will be helping us again this year and we shall commence rehearsals on 

Tuesday 1st September, at 2.30pm in the hall at Tasque as normal, and 
each Tuesday thereafter until the concerts, which are planned for 

11th December at Tasque and 
13th December in Plaisance. 

There has been a request for a further concert but I shall discuss that with everyone at an appropriate time.

Stephen, Riene and I have agreed upon a programme of traditional English and French songs, some old favourites and some new. I shall be putting together a song portfolio for everyone as I did last year and there will be a small cost for that for paper, ink etc.

I do hope that you are able to join with us again this year and if you know anyone who would like to come along too, that would be great.

Je suis ravi de vous dire Riene et Stephen nous aiderez à nouveau cette année et nous commenceront les répétitions 
le mardi 1er Septembre, à 14h30 dans la salle des fetes à Tasque comme d'habitude, et 
chaque mardi par la suite jusqu'à ce que les concerts, qui sont prévues l

Je vais vous donner un portefeuille de chanson pour tout le monde comme je l'ai fait l'année dernière et il y aura un petit coût pour celui du papier, de l'encre, etc.
