IT has been a busy month at ICE. Those who saw a large number of people wandering around Sabinillas on the morning of Saturday October 29, observing architecture and street notices and making notes on clipboards, might not have realised that this was an ICE Treasure Hunt.
The lucky winners received vouchers for meals in local restaurants. Thanks go to Rob Potter and Terry Smith for their hard work in preparing the quiz.
Wednesday November 2 was the date of ICE’S latest mystery tour. The first mystery stop was Parque de la Paloma, situated in the heart of Benalmadena Costa.
This green oasis is entirely man-made and over the years, the park has become something of an impromptu animal sanctuary, with rabbits, peacocks, goats, emus, donkeys and various other animals. After that the group headed to Benalmadena port for lunch and then some retail therapy.
On Saturday November 5, the Club celebrated its 28th birthday at El Paraiso Golf Club, presided over by President, Sue Potter. It was an evening of excellent food and drink, music and dancing to live music in convivial company, and there was a raffle of restaurant prizes kindly sponsored by Terry Waite of Blevin Franks.
Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram was performed by the ICE Players on November 11, 12 and 13. The play-within-a-play of four actors was in the cheeky spirit of Carry On. It was an evening of great fun for members. Congratulations must go to the actors, producer and director Julie Wood and to all who provided the technical, organisational and moral support.
ICE’s long awaited disabled lift was officially inaugurated on Thursday November 10. If anyone has been waiting for this to join the Club, wait no longer. Those who join in 2016 will not have to renew until January 2018.
