Message From President

Jill Cole

Welcome to the March Newsletter, on the 7th March the AGM is being held when you will have the opportunity to vote in a new President and Committee.
I would like to thank you all for the support you have given me over the last 2 years as President. It has been a great experience for me to work with such a great group of people.  I have loved it! But, times change and new blood is necessary to ensure that this wonderful organisation continues to evolve and grow, whilst still supporting all it's members. To enable this volunteers are always needed to join the Committee or run Groups, thus ensuring that the U3A Moraira Teulada continues for many years hence.
I would like to thank the Committee and Group Leaders for all their hard work ensuring the success of our U3A.  
During February we have had some upsetting news of members that are ill or who have passed away.  The Committee and I would like the respective families to know that our thoughts are with them.  For the Committee the biggest shock was the sudden passing of Shirley Baehr, Shirley was a founder member of the U3A Moraira-Teulada and an active Committee member.

Shirley Natanson Baehr 1951 - 2016

Shirley Natanson Baehr 1951 - 2016

Shirley was born in April 1951. After attending local schools in the London area Shirley learned secretarial skills at Pitman’s College in Southampton Row. At the very young age of 17 she got her first job as Personal Assistant to the International Manager at Lou Grade’s Pye Record Company based at Marble Arch.  Shirley soon realised that she had the biggest workload in the open-plan office she shared with all the other secretaries, but she was refused a pay rise as she was too young.

Enterprising even at that young age, one morning in 1969 when her boss was working abroad Shirley left the office at 10:00 am to buy the Evening Standard in which she found an advertisement for a similar job with another record company. After an interview with the International Manager (again), for which she dressed very smartly in a green suit with matching leather gloves, Shirley found herself working for Apple Records in Lady Hamilton house, in Savile Row.
Shirley gradually gained more responsibility with EMI who manufactured the records. When Apple records closed in 1975 EMI offered Shirley the job of Label/Product Manager and she was then the only female executive. Her portfolio of artistes included the Beatles, both as a group and individually (with whom she had built up a relationship during her Apple years), Cilla Black, Cliff Richards, Olivia Newton-John and Kate Bush – a few names we all recognise.

Shirley and Laurence met in the late 1980’s and they then bought a house together in Mill Hill and married in December 1990 at Burnt Oak Registry Office. Laurence had always wanted to retire to somewhere in the sun and by the sea so they visited the Costa Blanca over Christmas and New Year 2003/4 and, loving the area, they bought a flat off-plan in Calpe, where they spent holidays before letting their English home in August ‘06 and moving to Spain permanently with their two dogs. Six months later, knowing it was the right decision, they sold the house in Mill Hill and subsequently bought their villa in Moraira.

Shirley was one of those rare people who worked tirelessly on behalf of others both in the thriving Jewish community based in Benidorm where she was secretary to the Comunidad Isrealita De Alicante and also as the Groups Coordinator in Moraira Teulada U3A.

Shirley was an inspirational, indefatigable lady, a “one off”.

At the inaugural meeting of the Moraira-Teulada U3A in May 2008 Shirley was one of the first to volunteer to help and at the first Steering Group Meeting she offered to be the Groups Coordinator and she has steadfastly and responsibly remained in that very demanding office ever since. Shirley was always promoting and having ideas for new groups and then helped the new Group Leader set up, find premises for the meetings, and in some cases started a group herself to get a new project off the ground.

A very active Committee Member, Shirley helped with organising events, had meetings at her home where members always received delicious coffee and cakes, and generally got involved with all sorts of U3A events. She was a keen supporter of the U3A Golden Oldies Music Group of which Laurence is a founder member. Shirley also enjoyed welcoming members of this group at the beginning of the popular Music nights and usually gave a small speech of thanks at the end.

Shirley regularly held parties at her home to raise funds for charities, was an animal lover and a devoted dog owner.

She was a person always on the go, always willing to help people, always the first to volunteer, always friendly.

She will be greatly missed by all those who knew her and our hearts go out to Laurence, to her sister Helen and to all of Shirley’s family.

160314 Art Talk 14th March 2016: Grandma Moses

Art Talk 14th March 2016: Grandma Moses

Date: Monday 14th March 2016 10:30
Location: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira (next to the large free car park)
Subject: Grandma Moses (1860-1961)
Lecturer: Angela Chantry

Anna Mary Robertson Moses, known by her nickname Grandma Moses, was a renowned American folk artist who started painting in her 70s. Her nostalgic depictions of rural American life became internationally recognised and her paintings are among the collections of many museums. She has appeared on magazine covers, television and in a documentary on her life, won numerous awards and was awarded two honorary doctoral degrees. In person, Grandma Moses charmed wherever she went. A tiny, lively woman with mischievous grey eyes and a quick wit, she could be sharp-tongued with a sycophant and stern with an errant grandchild. Grandma Moses worked from memory, portraying a way of life she knew from experience. In her paintings there is no despair, unhappiness, or ageing, yet this unrealistic view of life is presented with remarkable power.

EU Referendum vote

EU Referendum vote

By David Salgo

The British Embassy in Madrid has produced a guide to encourage Britons who live in Spain to register to vote.

1.      A referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union will be held on 23 June.

2.      If you were on the electoral roll in the UK within the last 15 years, then you can register as an overseas voter and have your say. #yourvotematters.

3.      If you last lived in England, Scotland or Wales, go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and fill in your data. All you need is your National Insurance number, passport details and date of birth. (Even if you don’t have an NI number, you can still register).

4.      Choose how you want to vote – by post, proxy, or even in person if you will be in Britain on polling day. If you choose to vote by post, ballot forms will be despatched about one month ahead, giving you time to receive, complete and return your vote.

5.      If you were last registered to vote in Northern Ireland, download an overseas voter application form from the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland, at www.eoni.org.uk. You can choose to vote by proxy or in person, but not by post.

6.      Do register now, don’t wait until the last minute and miss the deadline. Thousands of expatriates are already signing up. If you wait, you may miss your chance to have your say.

7.      Just as in the UK, you need to register annually. So if you registered as an overseas voter for last year’s General Election, you still need to renew ahead of the EU referendum.

8.      Out of 283,000 Britons officially resident in Spain, just 11,000 were registered to vote in last year’s UK General Election. Many British expats could miss out on their say in the EU referendum, so tell your friends to register too.

9.      Use Facebook and Twitter to pass the message on that #yourvotematters.

10.  Go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote - make sure you can have your say

Success for Creative Writing Group

Success for Creative Writing Group

 

By Rosemary Sheppard

"The Creative Writing Group of the Moraira/Teulada U3A are enormously proud to announce that two of our members, Vonnie Giles and Hilary Coombes, have just had books published.    Vonnie has been one of the leading lights of the Group since it's formation.  She has lived in Spain for many years and has always enjoyed writing for pleasure, her principal aim, however,  always being to have her own book published.  Following Vonnie's successful contributions to the anthology 'Picked and Mixed', she was invited to publish a selection of her unique and quirky short stories.  These have now been published under the title ACID RAIN, which according to the cover of the book  'delves into her eclectic collection of dark and esoteric tales and promises to entertain and surprise. Meet some of the darkest characters ever to send shivers into your dreams.' 

• ISBN-10: 1908135069

• ISBN-13: 978-1908135063

We are as thrilled as she is that her dream has finally come true. Hilary was born in Devon and brought up in Bristol.  After juggling family and studying for university as a mature student she taught in various schools and colleges, eventually specialising in teaching blind students.  She now lives between Somerset and Spain with her husband.  All her previous books are non-fiction (boring, she says, compared with the joy of writing a 'proper' novel which is something she's wanted to do all her life). Hilary joined our Group a couple of years ago, seeking advice about a novel she had embarked upon.  Having been urged by the Group to 'carry on', this has now been published and is entitled 'THE HEN PARTY', described on the cover as follows: 'As the survivor of a terrible childhood, Bern has always lived her stormy flamboyant life as a fighter.  Now in her fifties organising a hen party in the popular Spanish resort of Benidorm is easy, but booking a party means that she must also deal with the consequences when one of her companions reveals a secret that has repercussions for everyone.  Bern finds herself in a Spanish police cell and is forced to confront her deeply buried feelings, her past and face up to the way that she is living her life.
Paperback ISBN number 978-1-908135-40-7978-1-908135-40-7  

eBook ISBN number 978-1-908135-41-4978-1-908135-41-4.'


Both of these books have been published as eBooks and paperbacks on Amazon, but booksellers should be able to obtain them. This, we feel, is a wonderful achievement not only for two very gifted writers but also for our Group and the Moraira/Teulada U3A in general."

Healthy Walking Group report, February 2016

Healthy Walking Group report, February 2016

By Noelene Cummins

26th/28th January. Teulada, Els Molins, Castellon

It was very misty for the Tuesday walk and there were no views. 24 members enjoyed the walk which started at Teulada Cemetery and had some steep parts to it.

On 28th the sun shone and 47 enjoyed wonderful views from the renovated mill at the top of El Molins urbanisation. Walkers were interested in the excavations near the car park which have opened up a large cave and remains of buildings in it. Roman?

Wednesday 27th January. Regular Walkers New Year Meal.

47 regular walkers met at La Brisa,Teulada for an enjoyable and noisy get together.

A comment was made about some not recognising some of the diners. As we do the same walk twice a week, regular walkers on Tuesday do not often meet those who walk on Thursday! Non walking partners were also at La Brisa.

The Blossom Walks

2nd/4th February Parcent, south through orange, almond & olive groves

Robert Verbruggen works out the walks schedule and every six weeks he emails it to all members of the walking group. Two days before the scheduled walk on 2nd February he notified walkers that the Blossom Walks would be the first two weeks of February instead of the last two as the blossom was fully out. Despite this alteration 60 walkers drove to Parcent that Tuesday. That is the largest group to date however Leader John coped admirably. It was cloudy but all enjoyed the beauty of the area. There are areas in the woods where there are tiny daffodils less than 1cm across the flower. Whilst crouching down to photograph them Tim spotted a beautiful Orchid. Coffee was at Castelvie in Alcalali.

31 walkers did the walk on Thursday 4th February. It was cloudy.

9th/11th February Parcent, northwest loop

This is an undulating walk along tracks around hills and orchards ending with a steep hill from the Wash House to the top of the village. Once again it was dull and the blossom looks best with the sun on it and blue sky behind.

38 walkers did the Tuesday walk, but 20 walkers on the Thursday walk were blessed with a fair amount of sunshine which brought out the colours of the countryside. Brian led this walk in reverse and avoided the steep hill for which some walkers were grateful! 18 walkers enjoyed coffee at Tramonti restaurant and some stayed for a meal.

Sadly, shortly after this event, Irene Mowle’s husband Alan, died. The group sent their condolences to Irene.

16th/18th February Benissa to Senija (The Cemetery walk!)

This walk is a level walk through the vineyards and fields including two beautifully kept Cemeteries. 30 or more members did these walks. Coffee was at the little bar at Brico on the Teulada industrial estate.

23rd February Around the country paths from Les Fonts

This walk leaves Les Fonts uphill and then drops into the carefully manicured fields in the valley below the urbanisation. It was a delight to see the neat cultivated fields and we admired a lovely allotment opposite the watermill. The variety of healthy vegetables growing side by side was a credit to the owner. It was unusually hot for February and many went to the bar in Benitaxell to revive with coffee or a beer.

By Eileen Haxon

A SIMPLE NO-COOK STARTER, DELICOUS SALMON PASTRY FOLLOWED BY A GLAMOROUS DESSERT.

SERRANO HAM WRAPPED PEACHES

SALMON EN CROUTE

1tbsp oil

1 large leek - finely shredded

200 g cream cheese with garlic and herbs

1 pack of puff pastry ( I like Lidl`s fresh puff pastry )

150 g cooked peeled prawns

1 egg ( use egg yolks from the following recipe )

Oven 200 C

Heat oil and fry for 10 minutes without browning. Cool slightly and stir in cream cheese, prawns and a pinch of pepper

Roll out sheet of pastry and divide into 4 squares

Divide the leek mixture into 4, placing down the centre of each pastry square. Cover with salmon fillet.

Brush pastry surrounds with beaten egg and wrap pastry around the salmon

like a sausage roll. Seal edges. Make a few cuts in the pastry, then brush with beaten egg.

Place on baking tray and bake for 25 / 30 minutes until golden.

GARLIC ROASTED NEW POTATOES cook these at the same time as the salmon en croute

1 kg baby new potatoes, washed

1 chopped garlic clove

pinch of dried herbs

olive oil

Oven 200 C. Put potatoes in a roasting tin and toss in the garlic, herbs and seasoning. Coat in about 2 / 3 tbsp of olive oil. Roast for about 30 - 40 minutes

SERVE A SIMPLE SALAD AS AN ACCOMPANIMENT

RASPBERRY PAVLOVA

For meringue -

3 large egg whites

140 g caster sugar

30 g light brown sugar

1 level tsp cornflour

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp white wine vinegar

Heat oven 170 C. Line a large baking sheet with baking parchment. Whisk egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gradually add the sugar a little at a time, whisking well between each addition. Whisk until stiff and shiny. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Spoon meringue onto lined baking sheet in a circle making a nest with sides higher than the centre. Place in the centre of the oven and bake for 1 and 1/4 hours turning the oven down to 125 C after 5 minutes.

Once cooked, turn off oven and leave pavlova inside oven until completely cool

Decoration -

300 ml double cream ( or a mixture of creme fraiche and cream )

1 punnet of raspberries or strawberries

Whip the cream until it holds shape.

To assemble the pavlova, place the meringue onto a serving plate. Put the cream in the centre and pile your chosen fruit on top of the cream.

Have a successful evening.

Magnum Productions Charity Concerts

Magnum Productions Charity Concerts

Logia Deportiva No.83 in association with Magnum Productions and Studio in Gata are promoting a series of charity concerts this year for the benefit of Masonic charities and the Alzheimers Society (AFA) Teulada - Moraira. The first concert in February featured the tremendously popular “Liverpool Band” who provided the best tribute to the Fab 4 that can be seen in Spain and were justly rewarded with standing ovations throughout their fabulous show.

The second of these concerts is scheduled for Friday the 18th March in Espai la Senieta, Moraira and showcases the wonderful combination of two of the most talented operatic singers on the Costa Blanca.  Gill Henry will be performing her unique style of modern popular songs from the greatest Diva’s in the world and will be followed by Manuel Lázaro singing some magnificent opera numbers with his enthralling tenor.  The second part of the show features duets with Gill and Manuel providing a perfect blend of Gill’s soprano and Manuel’s tenor voice.  Gill and Manuel thrilled the audience with their performance at the “Glyndebourne in Gata” event last year and this will truly be a “Classical Crossover” not to be missed. Tickets are only 12.50€ and there will be a bar and prize draw so please book early not to miss this one off event in a lovely theatre.

Lions Club Moraira. Manhatton Jazz Play Satchmo

Lions Club Moraira. Manhatton Jazz Play Satchmo

Unbelievably, this year sees the 45th anniversary of the death of Louis Armstrong when, on 6th July 1971, the world of jazz said goodbye to one of its true greats.

Although best remembered today by many for his hit records “Hello Dolly” and the iconic “What a Wonderful World”, the career of Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, jazz musician, composer and singer, spanned over 50 years and, as early as the 1920s he established himself as one of the pivotal and most influential figures in jazz music. With his famously gravelly voice, which appeared to originate from the soles of his boots, virtuoso performances on the trumpet & cornet and a hugely engaging stage presence, Satchmo was enormously popular with audiences wherever he played. It, therefore, takes genuine talent to do proper justice to any part of Louis Armstrong's extensive & varied repertoire of jazz music but, with this concert, talent aplenty is what will be on-stage at La Senieta as Manhatton Jazz take us back to the era when jazz was king.

Jef Hatton and the boys of Manhatton Jazz have a large and loyal fan base throughout the Costa Blanca and so we are delighted to have this opportunity to bring the band to La Senieta for this special night – the more so since they have, for many years now, been constant and generous supporters of Teulada Moraira Lions.

Jef Hatton has already promised that this is going to be a GREAT night and so, if you are any kind of jazz fan, form an orderly queue now to secure your seats via our Ticket Hotline: tel. (0034) 634 347 343(0034) 634 347 343 or email tmlionstickets@gmail.com. Tickets are priced at just 10 euros!
