UK EU Referendum

As you are aware, there is a referendum in the UK in June to determine Britain's future role in Europe.

The results of this are likely to affect all ex-pats living in Spain.

You may be eligible to vote in this referendum, and it is easy to register your right to vote.

See Vote for your Spanish future for more information.


BRITAIN DECIDES is a ten part radio series that provides an opportunity for both sides of the argument to be explained and rigorously tested.

Spanish

Heidi, the Group Leader of our Spanish classes, is thinking of starting a new Beginners class in September 2016, if there's enough interest (date and time to be decided).

Contact Spanish Beginners if you are interested in joining the class.

History Group

The speaker at the 14th June meeting of the History Group will be Mike Rendell, an authority on Georgian England. His talk, “Royal Shenanigans in the 18th-Century”, will take a look at the scandals which rocked the Royal Family 250 years ago.

See History for more details.

iPad SupportGroup

After 3 years as Group Leader, Lorraine Allin is stepping down following the June 2016 meeting.

A BIG thank you to Lorraine for all her hard work. Now we hope that someone will come forward and continue her good work and offer to keep this group going. Lorraine says "it is not an onerous role, is not time-consuming and does not require an in-depth knowledge of iPad, as this is a self-help group".

So therefore, we are looking for someone to lead the Group. Will you volunteer to save this group?

See iPad Support for more details.

Canal de la Fontana

Interested in what is happening on the Canal de la Fontana at the Arenal? Have you tried the new Promenade along the canal yet?

The NOTICE BOARD - normal service resumed.

The online Notice Board is now fully operational and if you are looking for a bargain, look here first.

See Notice Board for more details.

The Vice President

Unfortunately Geoff Woodwood has decided to stand down as Vice President. In his short time in the role, Geoff has achieved so much, having lined up speakers for the next year as well as a complete overhaul of our Discounts List.

The Committee will miss his talents and enthusiasm, as well as his wit and humour.

Visit to the Jávea Desalination Plant

One of the new Travel group members, Charo, is planning a visit (or two) to the Jávea Desalination Plant. This is a very interesting place and was fully booked a few years ago when similar visits took place.

Assuming there is interest, the proposed dates are Friday 3rd June and Wednesday 15th June. Both visits expected to be at 11:00.

If you would like to go, please contact Charo on travel.charo@u3ajavea.org, stating which date you prefer.

Cancer Research Fund-raising Concert
