Ladies Love to Lunch Xmas Celebrations, lunch and optional cocktails, will take place TODAY, Thursday, December 12, at the Columbus Hotel.

Beverley Holt and Kim Holm have started “Be Here Now” Ladies lunches to help support women in any way the group are able, be it to settle into a new country, support with a personal or business project or simply to make new friends.

“We are blessed to have many exceptional ladies in our group,” Beverley said.

“As the year draws to an end we will celebrate new friendships and meaningful relationships and have a fun end of year lunch to get to know each other better. We will reflect on the year past, our amazing speakers and acknowledge the great achievements from some of our members.

“Let’s think about what we can do in 2020 to truly be of service to each other.

“All members are welcome to bring any special Xmas vouchers for their services or products so we can support each other. Post them on our FB group. Even if you can’t make the lunch and would like to offer something, make a post and our members can contact you directly.

“Due to popular demand many ladies have asked to stay behind after the luncheon for some Xmas cheer. For those who don’t have to rush back to work we would love you to join us for a fun cocktail.”
