THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION OF MARBELLA – BAM
NEWSLETTER November 2015
The October monthly lunch was held at the Sirocco restaurant on Thursday 29th October. I am advised by one or two persons who attended the event that on this occasion the food was not up to its usual standard. However, many thanks go to Violette and Joan who managed the event.
The next BAM monthly lunch will now be held at the Angolino’s restaurant on Thursday 26th November. Please contact Violette, 952828988 by Monday 23rd November, to book your place for the lunch. The cost for the 3 course lunch, which includes the tip, the first drink and coffee, will be €16.00. The lunch, as usual, will commence with arrival at 1.30pm for lunch at 2.00pm.
Remember, it has been agreed that we will raise funds for an animal charity, Triple A, with an afternoon tea in which each member who attends would bring a cake or other contribution and then pay €5 for the charity donation. Guests are welcome together with their €5. Violette has kindly offered the use of her house to host the event. This will take place on Thursday 19th November. Please advise Violette, 952828988 if you wish to participate.
A very special Christmas lunch, again at San Cristobal similar to the very successful event last year, has been arranged for Wednesday 9th December. The lunch, as usual, will commence with arrival at 1.30pm for lunch at 2.00pm. This will immediately follow the BAM Wednesday morning coffee event which on this day only will commence later than usual at 12:00. The cost of this special lunch is €35. This includes a welcome drink, typical Christmas feast plus 4 different starters, or fish dish of the day, choice of drink with the meal, choice of dessert, mince pies, coffee and tip. A non-refundable deposit of €10 will be taken at the time of booking your place. Please contact Joan, as soon as possible, so that we can confirm numbers. Last date for receiving deposits will be Wednesday 2nd December
The BAM committee unanimously agreed that this year’s Charitable Donation will be presented in February to SER HURMANO where meals are provided for less fortunate and handicapped people of Marbella. Angret is to coordinate our involvement with this organisation. More details will be given nearer to the time of the event
Violette together with Yutta are arranging trips into Malaga for early Spring, it is likely that these will involve Malaga’s Picasso, Motor/Fashion and Thyssen museums.
Yutta has supplied me with information on the activities and events to be held at the Salon Varieties, U3A and the Costa del Sol Decorative & Fine Arts Society. For more details please contact Yutta, 952831289.
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.
