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
The knitting group continue to knit for the Salvation Army, who currently need hand-knitted garments for HMP Bronzefield, Ilford Homeless Project, Ilford Baby Bank and the Lovelight Project in Eastern Europe.
All items are delivered personally to the Salvation Army by Marion to ensure safe arrival, no costs involved.
Marion showed the meeting a wonderful
Thank You card from the Salvation Army and a wonderful selection of knitted garments.
Photos of these to update the Blog.
Marion further advised us that one member has started to collect second-hand clothes to donate, but that costs were involved in sending these items.
Marion will look into whether the Salvation Army has a collection point in France.
If you do have any unused and spare wool which you no longer want and would like to donate to this group, please bring it along with you to the GLC lunch. Thank you.
