The open doors event includes a visit to the vegetable garden, workshops for children and adults and also a bar to have organic drinks and snacks.

The event seems worth a visit. If you’re interested in joining us remember we will be carpooling from Eroski or you can go on your own and meet us there.

Bring a sandwich! We may take a walk later on in Jerez.

The Wise Men are Coming to Town!

The holiday season in Spain is still in full swing.

We are now waiting for the magical visit of the three wise men or kings. It’s going to be hard to get back to our regular work schedule and daily routines after all these festivities.

Walk and Talk Chiclana will not be on a “regular” walking schedule until late January. We have set a couple of walking dates for now:

Sunday, January 5th at Cruz Roja, La Barrosa at  5pm.

Friday, January 17th, Cruz Roja, La Barrosa at 11am.

Once we have a more definite schedule we will post it.

We hope everyone is enjoying time with family and friends during the holidays.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

 

A Time to Share

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.
