We had a packed house for our first meeting after the summer break and welcomed many new members. The room was buzzing with chatting as ladies caught up with news of old friends and new.

All ladies of all ages are invited to join our group which meets each 2nd Thursday of the month with speakers and activities, at the Social Centre, Camposol B at 2pm.

This year, in addition to these meetings, we will also be coming together each 4th Thursday of the month at the same time and place, to chat informally over a cuppa. This is a great opportunity to meet people if you are new to the area, or just looking for new friends.

On 11th October our speaker will be Tony Smith, The English Funeral Director who will tell us about his work. Please do not be deterred by the subject as I am sure we will find it most interesting and informative.

On sale will be tickets for our October Excursion to Totana on Thursday 18th, when we are lunching at Venta La Rata, after a visit to a pottery for browsing and shopping. The coach will leave Camposol B car park at 11am.  Lunch is at 1pm and we will be returning to Camposol at 4.30pm. The cost for this trip is 20€ pp for a 3 course lunch including a drink. The menu choices will be available on booking.

The afternoon of 25th October is a Coffee and Chat Afternoon and tickets for all outings will be on sale.

Looking further ahead, there is the opportunity for some early Christmas Shopping on Thursday 15th November, when we are taking a coach to Murcia, firstly to Ikea and then to the Nueva Condomina for lunch, window shopping or some serious retail therapy. Details of timings and cost will be available at the October meetings.

Plans are underway for our Christmas Lunch which is on Thursday 13th December, in place of our usual meeting. The Amapola Restaurant has been booked and we will give all the details when finalised.

Chatterbox’s aim is to offer the opportunity to meet other ladies through our meetings, trips and lunches. We are committed to making everyone feel valued and included and think that having time for a chat is important, especially as most of us are away from family. Don’t be alone, come and meet us, you will be made very welcome.
