GASCOGNE LADIES CLUB (GLC) -
We aim to act as a link between women of all nationalities, for social contact and the exchange of information, the organisation of various events including exhibitions, markets, creative workshops, and to share our regional knowledge of life in Gascony, 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
Our next walk will take place in the pretty hilltop village of Lavardens dominated by its Chateau and church on
Friday 9 August starting at 10.30 am
Lavardens is situated off the D930 Condom/Auch main road. It is a moderate circular walk of
10 kms (maximum 3h) with a variant of 5 kms (about 1.5h). The walk takes us out into the countryside in amongst the sunflowers with excellent views of Lavardens for much of the walk which means a few hills! We will pass ancient twin mills, the old Chapel of Saint Marie in amongst the vines and the old lavoir before returning to the village.
Re-walk - Montesquiou -
Wednesday 14 August starting at 10.30 am
We will walk the variant of 4.5 kms - a circular easy walk which starts in the pretty village of Montesquiou. We walk up the High Street through the village onto part of the Compostello St Jacques which we re-join later on in the walk. There are some good views and we pass the old lavoir en route.
