Happy New Year to all our Members

One of our newest members Tomo Kato, visiting from Japan, has just had her first child, a little boy Haruta, born on December 19.   Haruta is the first baby born to one of our members for many years. Tomo has promised to introduce him to us in the new year. We are looking forward to it!

The Ladies' Club is now in  its ninety-sixth year.

We are a friendly group of about a 100 members, with a varied programme of talks, social events and visits to places of interest.  Above is a picture taken on one of our many outings .


The Ladies’ Club usually meets either at:

Devonshire Hall, Cumberland Road, Leeds LS6 2EQ

or at University House on the university campus.

See the two images upper right.

Coffee or tea, with biscuits or cakes, will normally be served before  talks.

It is important that you inform the named person on your personal programme by the due date, if you wish to attend, as we have to advise the venues of numbers in advance.
