We have entered the summer season with, yet again, record numbers of members.
Our next General Meeting is on Monday 4th July and we hope to see many of you there.
My thanks to all those on the Committee who work so hard to ensure we have a vibrant, effective and welcoming U3A.
My thanks also to all of those who work so hard in the background on behalf of all members. There are so many such as Piotr Azia who looks after the Website, Dot Garrett who prepares these newsletters, John Snell & Colin McNae who ensure we have a sound system ready for the general Meetings. If I have inadvertently missed any other regular helpers please let me know but also please accept my apologies.
Finally, I want to thank all of the Group Leaders who work so hard to ensure we have many interesting activities in our U3A.
As we do not have a General Meeting in August I wish all of our members a happy summer and look forward to meeting many of you at the September meeting
Thoughts concerning a Moraira/Teulada U3A Care Group

Thoughts concerning a Moraira/Teulada U3A Care Group

By John Hopwood

President’s address at the General Meeting 6th June 2016

The President’s Address is usually just a few short comments about one or two not so interesting things – really just a bit of an infill to pad the out the meeting.

This morning I want to make an exception and talk to you about matters which, if they don’t concern you right now they most certainly are likely to in the future, one way or another.

What I want to say has been brought about by various recent events and first of all I am very sad to have to report the passing last week of Cathy Middleton who, together with her husband Chris, has been a member of our U3A from when it was first inaugurated. I am sure that you will all join me in sending our sincere condolences to Chris. Sadly, such similar events are quite simply part of our lives.

I want to make special mention of two of our members – both lovely ladies who spent – or in one case she is still spending – many, many hours of their time to benefit you and me – their fellow members – pretty much every single one of you - because they both looked after all of the groups in our U3A.

I am talking about Shirley Baehr who one day was with us working hard as our Groups Coordinator and who was in, as far as we were aware excellent health, and yet the next day she passed away and it was an enormous shock to all of us who knew her.

The other lady I want to mention is Lynn Clark who was Shirley’s assistant or, as she called herself, ‘Shirley’s little helper’. Lynn stepped into the big job immediately after we lost Shirley.

Only a few weeks later, Lynn’s husband Brian, suffered a massive and disastrous stroke as a result of which he spent weeks in critical care and is now still in hospital in rehabilitation but the time will come when he will be sent home and when Lynn will probably have to be a full time Carer.

Both of these ladies have given a great deal of themselves, their time and their efforts to our U3A and to you, our members without the expectation of any reward.

Such events made me think about what would happen to my wife, or your wife or your husband if – and the probability is when – we have to face some similar disaster. Would you have any support and help from anyone other than your close friends – your families may well live in another country.

Moraira/Teulada U3A is such a strong organisation – 1800 members compared to most locally who have only 150 to 500 or 600 members.In such an organisation surely there must be members willing to guide and support a new group which instead of being one set up purely for the enjoyment of members is one which is run to provide some care, help and comfort for those of our members who may be in need.

I am suggesting that what we could do is to organise a group with members being willing to give maybe an hour or so every now and again to perhaps do some ironing or take a cake,or to do some gardening, or to take a fellow member on a hospital visit, or just to spend an hour or so chatting to fellow members who have encountered some significant difficulty or problem or loss in their life.

I know that we are very fortunate to have the local HELP organisation who do wonderful work but I do feel that in such a large organisation as ours there must be many of you who would be extremely happy and willing from time to time to help fellow members who may be in need.

I think what we need is simply a Group Leader – just as we have for all of our other groups – who would be willing to organise members who join that group to volunteer to help other members who may be in need for whatever reason.

I am not suggesting any great involvements – but I do feel just that most of our members are caring considerate folk who would love to have the opportunity to join such a group and occasionally enjoy the satisfaction of bringing a little sunshine into the lives of those of our members who may be going through a period of loss or of some difficulties.

So that is something I put forward for all of you to think about and I hope that one or more of you will be willing to volunteer to lead this new group.

I now have an announcement to make. One of those ladies I mentioned, Lynn Clark, has decided that due to her husband Brian’s illness she has to step down from her role as the Groups Coordinator. I mentioned that Lynn was Shirley Baehr’s Little Helper and she worked hard then and has worked even harder since taking over Shirley’s role – despite all of the family problems she is having to cope with.

However, she has now very reluctantly had to decide that she must pass on that role to another so, on behalf of all of our members I want to most sincerely thank Lynn for everything she has done for this U3A and I ask you to show your appreciation.

I am absolutely delighted to tell you that, true to form, Lynn has also had some discussions with Prue Jackson and as a result of those discussions Prue has agreed to take over the role as Groups Coordinator and, for the time being Lynn has agreed to work with Prue as her Assistant Coordinator. I am sure everyone will join me in welcoming Prue as our new Groups Coordinator.

It is due to folk like Lynn & Prue being willing to take on responsibilities and to work so hard on behalf of our members that we have such a wonderful U3A.


Classical Music Group Trip to the Theatre

Classical Music Group Trip to the Theatre

By John Sheppard

On Friday 3rd of June a group from the U3A classical music group went to the Auditori Teulada Moraira to see and listen to the young Chinese pianist Haochen Zhang. He was brilliant, and ably assisted by the Chamber orchestra of Valencia conducted by Daniel Abad Casanova.

In the first half Haochen Zhang performed Beethoven's concerto number 4 for piano and orchestra. In the second half the orchestra performed Beethoven's symphony number 5 - all very enjoyable.

Afterwards the group went to a local restaurant and was lucky enough to be able to talk to the conductor and some of the musicians who were also in there . A superb evening all round.


Healthy Walking Group Report June 2016

Healthy Walking Group Report June 2016

By Noelene Cummins

May 31st & June 2nd       Teulada Camis and Railway

This walk was not the scheduled walk. When it was checked a few days before, it was found to be impassable beyond the Canor Restaurant. The spiky grass was waist high and two of the terraces had been pulled down. A walk avoiding this part meant 40 people crossing the N332 just round a bend so that idea was scrapped! Another walk beginning at the large Teulada Industrial Estate car park was taken and proved to be very pleasant. Walkers were warned about a pack of about 10 barking dogs which were all tied to trees. Passing them could be a bit unnerving. We passed another group of barking hunting dogs but these were securely in a cage! About 38 people walked and most enjoyed coffee at the Poligono Bar on Tuesday and the Brico Bar indoors on Thursday. This was the hottest walk to date.Later walks were adjusted to suit the weather.


End of Season Lunch      Montgo Restaurant June 1st

Although there were two more walks planned, it was suggested that we had an end of season lunch. In past years we have had a meal in the New Year in the evening and walkers were pleased that this was a lunch as some dislike driving in the dark. 36 walkers sat down to pre-ordered meals. They were served very efficiently by pleasant, helpful staff. Each course was served and cleared before the next. This avoided the problem of some eating their main course while others waited for their starter! If we had chatted a little less we would have heard more easily which meal was ours when it was brought out!

Congratulations and thanks to the Montgo staff.

Thanks were expressed to John and Brian for leading the walks throughout the year.

Thanks also go to Robert and Frieda, who have had to be in Belgium for much of the summer, for the work they do planning the walk schedule, plotting and checking suggested new walks and emailing them to almost 250 walkers. Thanks also to Karen and Clive of the Javea Walking Groups who have spent many years planning walks and allow us to cannibalise their walks to suit our group!

Walks stop at the end of June.

The Healthy Walking Group has been very successful this year. Far greater numbers of walkers have turned up and some people walk on both Tuesday and Thursday. Sometimes the leader does the walk in reverse to see different aspects of the countryside. The weather caused only 3 of the 48 walks to be cancelled since September 2015. The highest number of walkers was 60 and lowest 12, and between October and December the average was 35.

The Leaders look forward to your company when the autumn season of walks begin mid-September.

John & Teresa, Robert & Frieda, Brian & Noelene.

U3A Band Dates and venues

U3A Band Dates and venues

By John Hopwood


Moraira/Teulada U3A Band goes from strength to strength with a number of dates booked in the summer season.

On Saturday the 18 th June the band has been invited to play for the Benitatchell Bowls Club’s summer dinner dance and whilst U3A band does not accept any payments for performing, the members of the Bowls Club will be donating an agreed sum to local charities.

On Sunday 26 th June the U3A Band has again been invited by Moraira Lions to open their series of Summer Concerts with a full evening’s performance commencing 8pm at the sea front next to Moraira Castle. We hope to have great support from all of the members of Moraira U3A as it is an opportunity to listen to some great tunes whilst helping Lions with your generous donations. Last year we helped to raise more than €1500 for local charities and we are very much hoping to well exceed that amount this year.

The next Golden Oldies Music Night is on Saturday 9 th July at the Café Del Mar and this is already very heavily booked so members are advised to send their requests for places to John Hopwood, the Group Leader, as soon as possible.

The members of the band are very grateful for your continued support.

New Location For Teulada Weekly Market

New Location For Teulada Weekly Market

Some of you might have noticed, that the Teulada market has changed its location to the Plaza VI Centenari.
The citizens have asked for this change ages ago. The Calle Alicante is an important road to connect with the village center and the market has always caused problems, especially for ambulances and health vehicles who need access to the Alzheimer center.

June 2016

The Teulada-Moraira Town Hall has approved a decree which will help to guarantee freedom on public spaces. Measures will be available to stop aggression against human dignity, begging, street traders, abuse of public spaces and prostitution amongst others.

The main target of this decree is to preserve public spaces, to make it possible to share those common places with all citizens at any time, guarantee personal freedom and teach citizens to treat human dignity with respect. The decree will help to efficiently deal with new situations and circumstances. This might affect the maintenance of public spaces. The right of every citizen to freely use those spaces as well as enjoy his personal liberty will be respected, but on the other hand everybody must respect certain rules which guarantee human dignity and personal rights. It will not be done solely with the authorities controlling and fining, which sometimes will be necessary, they will take it a step further and also support and help in order to promote the values of civic life and of public spirit. The decree will include the whole municipality.

The following behaviors will no longer be accepted: acts against human dignity such as discrimination, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia or the disrespect of personal circumstances caused by financial or social difficulties, especially when attacks are targeted against the most vulnerable groups of our society.
