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 LLC 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. 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

Jane Cooper has kindly offered to host this event at her
house: address can be requested from Caroline

We will be following on from our December meeting when we learned about bug hotels 
and we will be assembling our own together in Jane’s barn/gîte - although there is heating it might be a good idea to dress warmly.

You will need to bring 
a box or container (an old wine crate would be ideal) 
and some materiel to fill it with to attract a variety of insect life -  
bamboo sticks, straw, twigs, pine cones, dry leaves, pieces of bark…


I have attached links to two useful websites to give you some inspiration.

As always, there will be tea and cake !

We look forward to seeing you all on the 4th,
Pat & Caroline
