At our October meeting we were delighted to welcome Jenny Baird, a representative from MABS, to whom we presented a cheque for 106.56€ which was raised at our ‘Macmillan’ Coffee Afternoon.

The English Funeral Director, Tony Smith also attended our meeting and answered all our questions relating to the difficult subject of dealing with a bereavement and I am sure putting a lot of minds to rest.

In November we will again have two meetings, on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.

Wednesday 8th November – one of our own members Irene Senior Peake is going to talk about The Beginnings Of Camposol. As one of the first residents, she has many early memories, which I am sure will be interesting to relatively newcomers and nostalgic to more longstanding members of Camposol.

Thursday 22nd November is an Informal Coffee & Chat Afternoon.

At both these meetings, tickets will be on sale for all current lunches and excursions.

Christmas Shopping Trip to Murcia – Thursday 15th November

We are taking the coach from Camposol B car park at 9.30am. Our first stop will be the Thader Shopping Mall and Ikea and then the coach will take us to The Nueva Condomina for some more retail therapy before returning to Camposol at 4.30pm. The cost is 9€ for members and 11€ for non-members. All ladies are welcome.

There will be no meetings in December, as we are having our Christmas lunch on Thursday 13th December at the Amapola Restaurante in Bolnuevo.  The coach will leave from Camposol B car park at 12.30pm, returning at 4.30pm. Carl Thomas will be providing festive music. This event is subsidised by Chatterbox funds and the cost is therefore only 20€ for members and 23€ for non-members.
