President’s Chat.

August 1st 2019

Well there’s a month I do not want to repeat. I think I will take July out of my calendar in the future, it always contains unhappy things. This year I have sat by hospital beds and attended funerals. I have flown to and fro to the UK and caught some dire bug which has laid me up for a week now. I am so glad that month has gone and I can start looking forward again.

On the bright side we did have the Moors and Christians fiesta, which is always good fun. This year was no exception, with the camels and geese and the girls in their bubbles. My friend and I sat in the latest bar in Avenida Lepanto, in the Urb. Puerto Real, I don’t know the name of it but a good few of the U3A Committee were there! It has a lovely view of things but, boy, is it pricey! I only went to listen to the massed bands play the ‘Javiensa’ but stayed for the whole thing. This was mainly due to the parking, I don’t know where Carmen parked my car but she was a long time retrieving it!

So now we are into the main tourist season. Lots of visitors, little space for cars! Lots of sunshine, lots of sun oil in the pool! Don’t we love it?

While you are relaxing in your own home avoiding the rush of sun seekers, do keep an eye on the trips that David and his team are arranging. You have to be quick sometimes to get onto them.

Also keep an eye on the Facebook page for extra events that are happening in and around Javea. Many in aid of the various charities.

On which note, Marion Kenworthy, of Todos Juntos Javea delivered some bits and pieces of craft materials to a group of disabled adults in Javea. This group makes all kinds of things which they then sell. So if you have any pieces of material, ribbons, beads etc you are about to throw away, reconsider!

As always, my friends, take care in the sun, protect yourselves and drink plenty…………….of WATER!!
