AT their meeting on Thursday, 2 March, the committee and members of the U3A Vall del Pop extended hearty 85th birthday greetings to John Chilcott and offered their thanks for his lead in establishing hill walking as one of the group’s most popular activities.
John has been an active member of the U3A Vall del Pop since its establishment ten years ago.
Until January this year, John was the leader of the Friday Walking Group, who each week walked a different part of the beautiful countryside and hills along the Costa Blanca region. They spent the day in the fresh air and sunshine, enjoyed terrific views and sights and rounded off the day at a pre-selected taverna.
Although the Friday walks are no longer the group still have weekly walking groups on Wednesday – half day finishing with coffee, and Thursday – full day with your own packed lunch and finishing at a wine bar or taverna.
