The next meeting will be at the Pensionista centre in San Pedro del Pinatar. Doors open at 10.00am and the meeting starts at 10.30am.
Don’t forget to bring your food donations for the El Samaritano project, your plastic bottle tops and small change.
The activities within Adapt are only possible because of the people who are willing to give some of their time to share their interests or hobbies with others.
We are currently looking for people to lead the more challenging walks and to resurrect the Cycling Group and the Out & About groups.
I have just been informed that Adrian Grainger can no longer support the Computer Group after May.
How about a Photography group, which encompasses the use of photoshop to edit all those wonderful photographs that have been taken. We could have competitions and we could even have a designated section on our website.
These things are only possible if we have people willing to lead them.
If you feel you would like to be involved in any of the above, or you have some ideas of your own, then please contact me for an informal chat.
You may think it’s odd for us to be thinking of an event that takes place in the winter of 2014 when spring has not yet sprung, let alone winter passing.
Organising a Pantomime can take some time so we need help now! Well not straight away, but we do need a level of commitment. We will need people to help make and design scenery, props and costumes. But more importantly we will need more people on stage. We have some broad outline ideas for this year’s panto, but before it can be turned into a script we need to know that we have a cast and a back stage team. There will be various non-speaking parts (well maybe you will have to say “hello” or “help”!)
We will start rehearsing late August, and performances will be at the end of November/early December. We can’t be definite as it’s too early to approach the Town Hall for use of the Casa De Cultura in San Pedro.
So, please e-mail me as soon as you can at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out more or help in what is becoming a traditional event in San Pedro. I will assume that all those who took part in Jack and the Beanstalk will be available unless I hear to the contrary.
The Computer Group will meet on Tuesday, March 4th at 6.00pm. We will be meeting at Fitzpatrick’s Irish Pub in Lo Pagan. There is no agenda for the meeting this month so we’ll go through anything the members wish to discuss or look at. Wifi is available so bring your devices and I’ll do my best to help out where I can.
16 seasoned walkers turned up at La Mata National Park, on 8th February for the 14km walk along the side of the smaller of the two lakes in Torrevieja. We all had a great time, chatting and walking and taking in the scenery. After we finished our packed lunch we headed back to the car park. Sylvia had a problem with her toes freezing up, so Joan and I followed at a slower pace. We eventually arrived at the car park, deciding to go the back route, only to find Janet Pierce and Pauline Nichols waiting for us on the expected route home, which we did not take. Ian Nichols had been sent to meet us on the expected route in his car. So we eventually opted for a coffee, which was very welcome. Thanks to all of the walkers and we look forward to seeing you all at the next walk.
The next walk will in Guardamar on the 8th March. Car sharing would be a good option.
Mar 8th – Guardamar.
April – San Pedro – Santiago de la Ribera.
May 10th – La Manga Camp Site – La Manga
June 14th – La Manga – Los Balcones
All the above walks are suitable for all levels of fitness.
We are looking for someone to take on the more challenging walks, which could be once a month, or once every three months or even once now and again. I have a library of all the different walks and if you are interested or want more information then please contact me.
Details of all our walks can be found on the website http://www.adaptsanpedro.eu
Four first aid kits have been funded by the sales of books for the Rambling and Metal detecting groups, which were gratefully received.
Please continue to bring your used books to the Monthly meetings.
Access for All has to report that there are now 40 blue disabled bays throughout San Pedro and Lo Pagan, some of which have routinely been placed on urbanizations by the Council understandably as it is the law. However we hope to see the N332 and the other 2 major roads having one or two installed for obvious reasons. We are working with the Council to have a Volunteers Day in the near future, which may very well create an interest both for the volunteers and the public.
