U3A MARINA BAIXA has provided friendship, events and activities for English-speakers no longer in full-time employment since 2006.

Their area covers Benidorm, Villajoyosa, Albir, Alfaz, Altea, La Nucia, Polop and inland as far as Guadalest.  Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month, with the exception of August and December.

Now that movement is permitted outside the Valencia region, U3A Marina Baixa’s Travel co-ordinators have arranged a visit in June to Bodegas D. Florentino Perez just outside Valencia.  A trip to Extremadura is planned for March next year with others still to be arranged

The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite residents in Spain with family and friends by capping the cost of PCR tests for travel. Please help us to urge the UK government to cap the cost.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
