CARLA BELTRAN is the newly-elected president of Moraira’s Moors and Christians Central Committee.
Beltran, belonging to the Almoraima group, replaces Victor Oller from the Almogovers who headed the committee for the last two years.
In his farewell speech Oller expressed his pride in representing the Moraira celebrations inside the municipality and in other parts of Spain.
These included the occasion when, representing the Costa Blanca Tourist Board and Teulada-Moraira town hall, the local filas paraded through the streets of Madrid during the Fitur tourism trade fair.
The fiestas also won the Tourism prize during the 2017 and 2018 National Assembly of Fiestas Groups held each year in Almansa (Albacete).
In conclusion, Oller called on the members of both bands as well as local businesses and town hall departments to work towards securing “Fiestas of Local and Regional Interest” status for the Moraira celebrations.
