The U3As of Vall del Pop and Denia joined forces for an unforgettable Christmas.
U3A Vall del Pop member and Publicity Officer Peter Sockett writes:
“The Nerja Christmas trip over five days at the Aparthotel Marinas de Nerja, which was attended by members from the Vall de Pop and Denia U3A associations, was superbly organised and managed by Sandra Welham with a helping hand as necessary from husband Bob, U3A Vall del Pop President.
“The hotel, situated on the beach, comprised apartment style accommodation, being very comfortable and spacious with a surprisingly good buffet for breakfast and evening meals inclusive of a choice of wines.
“The epicurean highlight being the Christmas Gala Lunch, leaving no palate unsatisfied and an appetite fully satiated. However, for those stalwart trenchermen eager for more, then an evening meal was available. There were some takers!
“Carols on the Beach on Christmas Eve was a great success helped along by some members of the Vall del Pop Singers, putting us all in a festive spirit.
“Organised visits to the spectacularly scenic village of Frigiliana and the Caves of Nerja were included with ample free time to explore the surrounding locality or just chill out on a sun lounger by the beach.
“On Boxing Day, a fantastic trip to see the lights in Malaga was arranged. No one should miss this sound and light experience! On our journey back, a festive quiz was organised which proved entertaining with first prize taken by the Denia President.
“The coach driver, Pepe, deserves a special mention not only for his considerate driving but for being ever cheerful and helpful.
If a similar trip is organised for next Christmas, book early!”
