The British Social Club of Marbella (BSC) - February 2017 Newsletter of this informal friendship group.

Norma arranged for flowers and card to be presented, on behalf of former BAM and BSC members, to the family of Antoinette at the religious ceremony to commemorate her life. Several BSC friends attended the service at the Calvario Church.

It has been a terrible period for deaths and serious health issues for many of our members; let us hope that during the next few months our friends show some signs of improvement.

The January monthly lunch was held on Thursday 26th January at Sirocco Restaurant, formerly the Puerto Azul. It was unanimously agreed that with the change of management the location, service and quality and quantity of the menu del dia provided was of an exception quality. Definitely, a venue to visited again by BSC.

The February monthly lunch is to be held on Thursday 26th February at the Hong Kong Restaurant. Please advise Violette if you are likely to want to attend. The special multi plate menu will be on offer at €15, which includes the tip for the staff. Drinks need to be bought at the time of ordering. The lunch, as usual, will commence with arrival at 1.30pm for lunch to be served at 2.00pm.

Not all our attendees to our coffee mornings have offered to pay the €12 requested to cover day to costs in running BSC. May I remind everyone that they are encouraged to bring guests to all BSC events, however when a guest has attended 3 events, coffee morning, lunch or trip, they are expected to become a BSC member and make the same contribution that all other members have made. When attending our monthly lunch, all guests will be charged an extra €1 and on other trips a surcharge yet to be agreed.

The trip to Salon Varietes, Fuengirola, on 18th February for an ABBA tribute is already well under way. Angret has booked tickets for 12 of us and arranged a mini bus to be available for pickup in Marbella. Gigi has generously agreed to fund the cost of using the mini bus. If anyone once else is interested, please contact Angret immediately as we only have 1 seat left on the mini bus.
