THERE are so many willing volunteer members of the Javea U3A – but the prize for the most industrious must go to one particular couple.
Angela Chantry and Tony Dearie are group leaders of three groups: Spanish Culture and Cuisine, Travellers’ Tales and History. And the success of all three groups is testament to their unflagging diligence and attention to detail.
Over the past month they have hosted a Travellers’ Tales talk and picture show of a U3A river cruise in Andalusia which they organised, a History presentation on the life of Spain’s famous flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya, and most recently a Spanish Culture and Cuisine day trip to Les Coves de Sant Josep, La Vall d’Uixo!
The caves coach trip, experienced by 60 Javea U3A members, included a boat ride on Europe’s longest underground navigable river and a typical Spanish lunch in a cave restaurant.
There was a huge round of applause for Angela and Tony as the coach returned to Javea at the end of another perfectly-organised event.
