December 2016 Newsletter of this informal friendship group.

The British Social Club of Marbella (BSC)
December 2016 Newsletter of this informal friendship group.

It is with sadness that I must advise you that during the month both Ann Gray any Les Ramsay died. Both our friends will be sadly missed and our sincere condolences go to their friends and families.

Our thanks go to Norma for arranging Christmas cards and presents to be given, on behalf of BSC, to our currently infirm friends. Jean Lord has asked that you all be thanked for the gift she received.

The November monthly lunch was held on Thursday 24th November at Angolinos Restaurant. Although the meal was appreciated by those who attended the seating arrangement was very cramped and not terribly convenient. In my opinion, the inside dinning space is fine for a small number of dinners but not for a group of our size. During the lunch time, we presented to Ana Ortega Cruz, President, Marbella Voluntarios €1000 from BAM funds. Marbella Voluntarios are to use the money to make up baskets of Christmas food to distribute to needy families and senior citizens in Marbella. Subsequently, we have received formal notification that the money has been deposited into the bank of Marbella Voluntarios.

The Special Christmas lunch, consisting of all 4 starters, traditional Christmas Roast Turkey with all the trimmings, dessert, mince pies, wine and coffee was held at the San Cristobal restaurant on Thursday December 15th. Like the quiz, created by Joan, the whole event was a great success enjoyed by all who attended.

The January monthly lunch is to be held on Thursday 26th January at Sirocco Restaurant, formerly the Puerto Azul. Please advise Angret or Joan if you are likely to want to attend.

Yutta continues to have up to date information of trips and cultural events for all who wish to contact her. She has details on Salon Varietes Christmas events for the next month or two.

Our BSC coffee mornings will be held in the library/TV room at the San Cristobal Hotel every Wednesday morning between 11am and 12pm until further notice.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year.
