U3A Vall del Pop summer update


THE U3A (University of the Third Age) Vall del Pop group, a self-help organisation for people no longer in full-time employment, covers the many villages and communities in the Jalon and Orba valleys, with some members travelling from Els Poblets, Javea and Pego.

The group provides an opportunity for English speaking expatriates to meet, share experiences, learn new skills, take part in trips and most importantly to make new friends.

General Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Centre Polivalent in Murla, where the committee report on the position of the group, with respect to membership, accounts, group activities, trips and events, etc.

These meeting culminate with a short talk from selected speakers on topics of interest, which in the last session included Spanish Taxes and Brexit, Marine Turtle Conservation and BOAC Experiences.

The U3A Vall del Pop boasts a variety of groups:

Choir and Dancing, Ballroom and Line Dancing

Wine Tasting, Singles Dining and Dining Experience

Digit Photography, Mosaics and Upholstery

Word Addicts, Bridge and Cinema

Walking Groups [half day and full day], Padel

Spanish Classes and Spanish Communication

and from September new groups will be run:

Keep Fit Classes in Alcalali

Yarn & Thread Group in Orba

And with the support of the Spanish Red Cross a First Aid Course will be held in the autumn.
