Just arrived in Ladysmith and looking to make new friends? Do you need help with a specific need for your family or business but don’t know where to start? Or are you looking to move to Ladysmith from afar and need help landing safely?

The Ladysmith  Newcomers Club (LNC) is a social club where new and nearly-new residents to the Ladysmith area can meet and interact through fun activities and events. The purpose of the club is as follows:

  • To welcome and offer friendship to singles and couples new or recently moved to the Ladysmith area
  • To share common interests
  • To enjoy organized fun activities
  • To learn together about the Ladysmith area

Monthly activities include Monday morning 10:00 am coffee meetings at Tim Horton’s, pub nights, theatre/concert nights,  walking club, lunches, dinners and teas, card and games nights.

Our general meeting is held at 6:30 p.m. on the last Sunday of the month (September through June) at the upstairs meeting room of the Ladysmith Branch of the Royal Canadian  Legion, 621 first Ave Ladysmith BC.

Hope to see you soon!
