The February BAM monthly lunch was held at the La Ribera restaurant on Thursday 26th February. All who attended were pleased with the event. Many thanks go to Paz and Angret for arranging this lunch. During the meal ASPANDEM was presented with our charitable donation. I have issued a press release, together with a photograph, to SUR in English and the Euro weekly news publications.

The next BAM monthly lunch will now be held at the San Cristobal restaurant, on Thursday 26th March. The menu to choose from will be the menu de dia of the hotel.

Please contact Joan, 952 835 947, ASAP, at the latest Monday 23rd March, to book your place. The lunch, as usual, will commence with arrival at 1.30pm for lunch at 2.00pm. The cost for the 3 course lunch which includes the tip and a drink is €13.50. Please pre-book to assure a guaranteed place.

Future monthly lunches are to be held at the restaurants of Puerto Azul on Thursday 30th April and El Capitan on Thursday 28th May. During 2015 it is likely that events will also be held at the Shanghai, La Ribera, Da Bruno and Andana restaurants.

New to Estepona is the Orchid House and botanical garden, situated near the heart of town it has the largest collection in Europe of Orchids with varieties from South America & Asia. The cost for the coach only is €11.

Tarifa: Visit to a wonderful Old Moorish Town with its great tapas bars and restaurants and Bohemian atmosphere on Sunday 3rd May. Spectacular drive there and back and if you like fish & seafood, this is the place for you. The cost for the coach only is €20.

If you would like to be part of a ‘BAM group’ please contact Joan, 952835947, as soon as possible, so we can secure a pick-up at the bus stop opposite the BP garage at La Canada and get confirmation of times for departure and return to La Canada, etc.

Our best wishes go to Antoinette and Jean who are still not well. We hope they soon get back to full strength.

The BAM coffee morning event continues to be held on at the San Cristobal, so we hope to see you all every Wednesday from 11:00 in the library.

Many thanks are given to Eva, who has created and constantly updates a new website and Facebook entry for BAM. Any ideas for additional content would be appreciated.
