British and Commonwealth Women’s Association

The BCWA was created in 1962, but has evolved over the years to accommodate changing times and more importantly, the changing attitudes of modern women. It offers a broad range of interests such as Mahjong , scrabble, yoga, book discussion groups, bridge, quizzes and monthly walks and visits, often to places not readily open to the public.  The BCWA is a voluntary organisation; all events are organised by members.

The Dordogne Ladies Club International

Formed in 1986 as a not-for-profit association for women living in and around the Dordogne, we are a vibrant and enthusiastic community of all ages and nationalities (with English as the common language). Our ethos is networking, cultural exchange, friendship, support, welfare and raising money for local charities. Current members from all over the world provide mutual support for new lives in France and get together for social gatherings throughout the year. Annual membership is 25 euros.
