The lunch is simply a get-together to have fun and offer support to the newcomers. A lot of good friendships have evolved from the lunches and there have been many happy reunions. For example, Betty Bibby and Nina Candy bumped into each other at one lunch and their history goes way back. Neither knew the other would be here.
 
The same goes for myself and Joy Geldenhuis, who worked together over 25 years ago. We saw and recognised each other at a lunch, although in all honesty it was only a week later that we worked out where we knew each other from.
 
There was also the case of a lovely lady who was feeling a bit down at one of the lunches, and we all thought she would get on well with a regular, Jean Nixon. We called her over only for Jean to recognise her and declare: “Was your maiden name . . . ?” to which she replied: “Why, yes it is!”
 
And Jean said: “You're my cousin!” It was a wonderful moment and the ladies around were in tears at this happy reunion.
 
We try and meet at a different venue every month and try to accommodate all by having the get-together on a different day each month to give everyone a chance of attending at least one of the lunches.
 
We have a wonderful group of ladies here on the Gold Coast, and our lunches even include Mauritians, Welsh, Austrians, Hollanders and not forgetting Zimbabweans - so even though we are called the South African Ladies Lunch we have an open policy as the motto is simply: “Friendship.”
 
Ladies Lunches Lunches are held at a different venue every month and on a different day each month to give everyone a chance of attending one of the lunches. We have a wonderful group of ladies here on the Gold Coast and welcome newcomers with open arms.
