We hope everyone is enjoying the month of December.
We’ve had a few special events which have been a great success and very fulfilling.
As you know December is a time for us to take a small break. All of our regular walks on Friday and Sunday are cancelled until January 2014.
As for now our final special event of the year will be an Intercultural Christmas Meetup on December 12th, at 7:00 pm at the Cento Box, in Urbisur sponsored by The Lemon Tree English Conversation group. Please bring a toy to donate and a sweet to share with others. There will be live music by Mezcla Casual, a local band based in Chiclana.
Please join in this good cause. It’s a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit and share with others.
With the upcoming holiday season just around the corner we have organized a few special events to get into the spirit. Make sure to mark your calendars and join in!
Please remember we will not have our regular walks on Fridays or Sundays during the month of December.
