GENTLE WALK: U3A Marina Baixa’s Monday strollers in Calpe Photo credit: U3A Marina Baixa

U3A MARINA BAIX’s new Computer and Smart Phone group met recently for the first time at Alfaz’s Casa de Cultura.

There were some minor problems with internet connections but, on the whole, a very successful first meeting although. Owing to the October 12 fiesta, the group cannot meet next Tuesday but all will be back to normal the following week.

The Monday Strollers met in early October at the northern end of Calpe for a gentle stroll along the cliff-top path, enjoying outstanding views across the Mediterranean.


The next Monday stroll takes on November 15, leaving the car park at La Nucia cemetery at 2 pm for a stroll to the top of the Monte del Calvario for stunning views across the Marina Baja after a reasonable climb.

A trip to Nueva Condomina Shopping Centre and IKEA in Valencia is planned for Friday November 5, for which a few seats are still available at €18 euros per person.

New regulations affecting coach travel require members to provide evidence of their Covid-19 vaccination or alternatively an antigen test taken within the 48 hours before departure. Masks must be worn throughout the journey.

Further information is available on the association’s website and their Facebook page. Non-members are always welcome to attend a meeting.
