The Vall del Pop U3A started their General Assembly on 6th October with a busy pre-meeting period for booking trips and events, perusing the Pre-Loved Table and, my personal favourite, enjoying the freshly prepared cakes. Paula did us proud this month with a wide variety of delicious cakes, the sponge with fresh strawberry was well worth a second piece – but I had just eaten the last slice!!
Despite torrential rain and flash floods 80 U3A members and friends, and OK Band supporters, braved the weather and enjoyed the most fabulous afternoon picnic concert on Sunday 25th September at Pinos. After a welcome from the U3A Goodwill team and Ian Bennett from Bay Radio the party was kicked off by Paul and Jude J, two of our lovely U3A members, with some great songs from the 60s and 70s, while we enjoyed our picnics. They did us proud as always. A great start, thank you.
Whilst we have been taking the shade with a cooling drink or keeping cool in the pool our TCET, Goodwill and Sharing & Caring teams have been busy arranging a ‘something for everybody’ events programme for the autumn season.
Since Brexit the rules regarding voting rights have changed as British residents of Spain are no longer EU citizens. However, as part of an agreement during the Brexit negociations certain EU countries including Spain retained voting rights for British residents.
It was important to come early to the Vall del Pop U3A’s first meeting of the new season last Thursday, 8th September, as there was lots to do before the meeting.
