Frequency: Weekly:  Wednesday & Fridays 

Venue: Bar Mediterraneo, Avd. del Mediterraneo, Teulada

Group Leader:   Pauline McGough – contact me for timings

My name is Pauline McGough and I’m one of the U3A Associate Spanish Teachers.

I do a variety of classes from beginners, post beginners, pre intermediate and intermediate, and I charge 4€ per person per lesson to be paid up front at the beginning of each month. This is the discounted amount especially for U3A member. Non members pay 5€ a class, so a pretty big saving!!!

To help cover all levels of learning Spanish I have put the post beginners in for those who aren’t absolute beginners and the pre intermediate for those who need a bit of a push to get talking! If you’re not sure what level you are no problem come to a beginner’s class and together we can see identify which is correct level for you.

I teach at Bar Med in Teulada – on Wednesdays and Friday. Times vary depending on your level. So please contact me on the email address below in the first instance.

No lessons in July-August (Lessons resume in September)

Ukulele @ El Martillo bar
Jul 10 @ 13:30

Frequency: Weekly: Fridays at 13:30

Venue: El Martillo, Moraira

Group Leader: Roger Saunders

Ukulele groups are one of the most popular social activities in the UK especially in close knit village communities with new groups being formed almost daily. The Ukulele is a very simple instrument to learn to play and perfectly good instruments are available e.g. from Amazon @ between €30 to €60.
Most schools now teach pupils to play the ukulele because it is a much more versatile instrument than recorders and is more likely to encourage players to become enthusiastic about music.

Our Ukulele Group had its first meeting on the 17th November 2016 and, meets each Friday at 1.30pm at Sol Park Tennis Club, usually for a couple of hours. By September 2017 we had twenty members and in May 2018 more than thirty- almost all starting as complete novices.
All are welcome and song lists with simple chord charts are freely available.

Our Ukulele Group entertained fellow members of Moraira-Teulada U3A with an enjoyable ‘song-along’ at the December General meeting last year (2017) and are busy practicing for another performance at the December 2018 General Meeting. Many UK Ukulele groups raise thousands for local charities e.g the Eskdale group in N. Yorks. has raised more than £10,000 for the local Air Ambulance service.
Unfortunately, some UK Groups appear to be a little shy but this is an American group showing what it’s all about:

Family History (Genealogy) @ Aula de Asociaciones, Calle Calatayud 45, 1st floor

Frequency: Weekly: Fridays 14:00 – 16:00

Venue: Aula de Asociaciones, Calle Calatayud 45, 1st floor (there is a lift)

Group leader: Noelene Cummins

The group has been set up to help members to trace their Family History using online sites.
You will learn how to use the free genealogy sites and will be able to trace your family back. You will be able to put all the information onto your computer so you can print a tree. Once you grow a family tree you may want to subscribe to one of the big Genealogy sites. This will enable you to prove or disprove those family stories, put names to photographs and find relatives all over the world.
You will need to be able to use a computer/ tablet and bring it with you and a notebook to meetings. You need to bring any family certificates or documents to add the information to your tree. You will not miss anything if you do not attend a meeting as each member works at his/her own pace.


If you are interested, please contact Noelene Cummins: genealogy@u3amoraira-teulada.org

What is petanque?

Pétanque (in French) is a form of boules where the goal is to throw metal balls (boules) as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet or Jack. The object of the game is to throw your balls – usually in an arched back-spin – so that they land closer to the small object ball (the jack) than those of your opponent, or to strike and drive the object ball towards your other balls and away from your opponent’s balls. The really only essential is a set of steel boules (three minimum), which should have identical markings (groves). A set of boules can costs anywhere from 8 euros upwards and can be purchased from most Chinese shops.

Spanish Conversation Intermediate @ Relax Cafe
Jul 11 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Frequency: Weekly: Saturday 10:30 – 12:00

Venue:  Relax Cafe, Moraira

Group Leader: Sheila Shipsides

A coffee morning with a difference! You need to be familiar with the different Spanish verb tenses and endings, have learnt grammar fairly thoroughly and have a certain amount of vocabulary to be able to participate as we have no teacher – you will find that you learn from some and help others.

We sit at tables of four or less so everyone gets their say. The idea is to practice in a relaxed way what we have already learnt in class. After quite a short time we are finding that we can think more quickly and consequently are becoming more fluent.


If you would like to come along, please email me Sheila Shipsides by email: group-spanish-intermediate@u3amoraira-teulada.org

 

Classic Cars & Motorcycles @ The Harley Davidson Cafe
Jul 11 @ 13:00 – 15:00

Frequency: Monthly: 2nd Saturday at 13:00 – 15:00

Venue: The Harley Davidson Cafe, Moraira

Group Leader: Anne Castle

We have people with classic cars and several with classic motorcycles attending this group, so we now welcome anyone who may or may not own a classic car or classic motorcycle but has an interest in them and would like to join us.  We meet every 2nd Saturday in the month 13.00 – 15.00 at the The Harley Davison Cafe, Moraira.

The only stipulation is that you must at least buy a drink and I think that it is only fair as the proprietors are not making a charge for the use of their premises.

This group is for those who find themselves ‘solo’ for whatever reason, and would like to make new friends and take part in fun activities.
The events are organised by individual members of the group, depending on their interests, and email contacts are coordinated by the group leader, Sheran(she’s very well organised!).

Anyone can suggest an activity, so we always have a variety of ideas from simple coffee meet-ups, drinks evenings and lunches, to walks, mini golf, live music from local bands in bars to larger concerts at La Senieta in Moraira, with popular tribute acts and much more.
Not to mention dancing at Saxo in Moraira!
Anything goes if you can persuade a group of us to share your interests.

We are a large friendly group and people “dip into” our events when it suits them.
The average number of SoloAmigos at any activity is usually around 8-15 members, so it’s never such a big gathering that you would feel left out.  We’re very welcoming, so give us a try!

We now have our own group blog / website, so you can see our latest events and get an idea of what we get up to and what we look like!

Creative Writing @ Aula de Asociaciones, Calle Dr. Calatayud

Frequency: Weekly:  Mondays 15.00 to 18.00

Venue: Aula de Asociaciones, Calle Dr. Calatayud 45, Moraira (Upstairs Room, there is a lift)

Group Leader: Dot Garrett


 

At the meetings we share our individual contributions by reading aloud from the set topic suggested by the Group Leader.

We give and receive constructive criticism to help us develop our writing skills.

We are a group who either already enjoy writing or who want to start and need help. Most of all, we want to have fun. They say that everyone has a novel inside them waiting to get out. Some of us would be happy with a short story or a simple poem. Writing takes many forms and can be really rewarding especially when you share it with others.

That’s our aim in the Creative Writing Group. We want to enjoy ourselves and improve our writing at the same time through reading our work aloud, discussing it with each other, sharing ideas and penning the occasional exercise to sharpen our wits and challenge our imaginations.

As a group we are tremendously proud to have three of our members works published.

In 2018, our 10 year anniversary, we published a book of short stories called “Lucky Escapes”, available from Amazon and kindle.

Photography @ Bar El Martillo
Jul 15 @ 10:30 – 12:30

Frequency: Monthly: 3rd Wednesday 10:30-12:30

Venue: Bar El Martillo, Moraira

Group Leader: John Snell

Assistant Group Leader: Tom Birch

Purpose of the group

The members of the photography group have one thing in common. All have a digital camera and enjoy taking pictures. Some may have a small compact camera, while others may have a DSLR with multiple lenses. Some are complete novices and others have years of experience. But all of us would like to learn a bit more about how to get the best out of our cameras, and sharing our knowledge is a good way to start.

The days when we had to decide how many rolls of film to take on holiday, and then wait for them to be processed when we got home are long gone. Modern technology enables us to take thousands of images on single digital card; even basic compact cameras having several menus to choose from. Moreover, we now have our own “Digital Darkroom”, as there are many different software programmes available to amend or completely change the images we’ve taken.

At the group’s meetings we aim to have tutorials which tackle different subjects, for example composition, exposure, and editing programmes.

Each month a subject is chosen by members to photograph and then share at the following meeting. The group also has about 5 outings per year to places where an interesting range of images can be taken.

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact the group leaders at photography@u3amoraira-teulada.org

Group Outings

The group hopes to have about 5 outings each year. The object is not only to have a social gathering of our members, but also to visit places where different aspects of photography can be practised. One visit could concentrate on landscapes, another to a garden, or buildings or towns of interest. Perhaps one would concentrate on photographing people, another on taking photographs indoors. The venues are all chosen by the members of the group, with the option of getting together for a meal when the photographic element of the outing is over. Sounds like fun?
