“One can not think well, love well and sleep well if one has not dined well.”
So, what is ELLE? ELLE is Every Lady’s Luncheon Extravaganza. It’s pure decadence for ladies!
Typically, each lunch will consist of a tempting choice of three-course menu with wine & coffee/tea. Before most lunches we hold a presentation from a Guest Speaker. Each November we hold a Christmas Shopping Extravaganza before the lunch with many interesting stalls to browse. In December we have a Christmas Drinks Reception & Raffle and occasionally we will have other events, such as a Charity Afternoon Tea, a Shopping Trip or even a visit to a Christmas Pantomime! ELLE offers a great opportunity for meeting with like minded people and making new friends.
What we do.
We currently have regular ladies lunches at some of Poole & Bournemouth’s finest Hotels and occasionally we will meet in the Dorchester area at an award winning restaurant – Yalbury Cottage at Lower Bockhampton.
Lunches are usually held on a Wednesday. Our presentations from Guest Speakers are for approximatley an hour’s duration before lunch which is served around 1pm.
There is an Elle event to attend approximately every 4 weeks.
We are a relaxed, friendly luncheon club with a great atmosphere. ELLE is an opportunity for getting together with friends and also meeting new friends.
We would love to hear from you!
A member of Elle for more than fifteen years
I have been a member of Elle for more than fifteen years now and because I enjoy it so much I hardly ever miss a meeting.
WHY? Because I am able to enjoy the company of other discerning ladies, I appreciate good food and wine and at most meetings we have excellent Speakers before the luncheon who will cover a wide variety of subjects.
The ELLE club is special to me because it is very well organised and members viewpoints and preferences are always taken into account for future events. What more could I ask?
Excellent selection of speakers and activities
I have been a member of ELLE for many years and have really enjoyed all the luncheons at various hotels, with an excellent selection of speakers and activities and of course, most importantly meeting many friends and getting to know new members. Clare and Janet run the club really efficiently and it is all great fun, I am looking forward to the Xmas lunch at the Guildhall Tavern never having been there before.
Very enjoyable lunches
Clare and Janet organise very enjoyable lunches with interesting speakers and provide very good value for their members.
Lots of interesting people
The Elle Luncheon Club provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy stimulating presentations and to meet lots of interesting people in great venues - all very professionally organised.
A very friendly group of ladies
"I really enjoy our Elle lunches. The membership is a very friendly group of ladies and there is always a really nice atmosphere. As well as a good lunch, we get to hear some exceptionally interesting speakers on a wide range of topics. What’s not to like?"
A vast array of delightful events
The ELLE club has created a wonderful venue for meeting ladies and connecting with like minded women. It has been an opportunity to share life experiences and attend a vast array of delightful events. There is a real need for this.
A friendly club and lovely locations
Such a friendly club and lovely locations to eat. Janet and Clare make members feel like welcome guests to each lunchtime event.
