Due to arrangements at El Cid for the next two months, November and December General Assemblies will be held on the first Wednesday of the month.
We hope that these changes will not be too inconvenient for members and when we return to normal, we will review the situation.
Doors open at 10am for membership and Travel, Cultural and Entertainment events.
Formal General Assembly starts at 11am
Refreshments are available before and after the General Assembly.
Vernon and his wife retired to Spain in 2007 and live in Orba. Before he left the UK, Vernon presented talk programmes on as local commercial radio station, Delta FM, and can still be heard presenting various programmes on Hospital Radio Basingstoke, for whom he also produces a regular magazine programme Postcard from Spain.
Vernon helped launch an English-speaking, local radio station Valley FM, covering the Orba and Jalon valleys on 94.5 and 102.6fm and on-line at www.valleyfm.es. The station broadcasts 24/7 with UK news from Sky on the hour and additional business, sports and Spanish news throughout weekday mornings.
Vernon presents a wide variety of programmes, including a regular lunchtime music show in conjunction with his wife Celia and specialist-interest shows featuring modern American country music, '60s/70s/80s and classical music, love songs, short stories and even a comedy hour.
He also presents a 2 hour magazine programme on Saturday lunchtime which covers a wide variety of subjects and includes a recipe spot presented by his wife Celia, a ‘wine of the week’ from a local wine expert, a ‘Good Life in Spain’ self-sufficiency blog and interviews with local musicians and singers by a presenter who is himself a musician. See the station’s programme schedule on its website www.valleyfm.es for more details.
Vernon is very much involved with life in the Valley FM area and maintains a ‘What’s On’ page which provides free publicity for local events and classes and he produces an hourly events bulletin.
