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

Dear Gardeners

Next month’s Garden Group outing is a trip to

near Boulogne Sur Gesse 
The McArthur family

a garden centre & landscaping business run by

Due to his many commitments he is only available on Saturdays so, for this reason, we have decided (exceptionally) to change the day of the outing from Thursday to
Saturday 9th April.

We will meet at the centre at 2.30 pm 
As always, tea and cake will be served !

Shrubs, Hedging, Bamboo and grasses
He has kindly agreed to give us a guided tour of the centre followed by a talk about roses.
Hoping that many of you will be able to join us, please consider car-sharing where possible.
