The financial report was then read and the treasurer noted that there was one outstanding cheque to be cashed. Next, our Christmas Night Out was discussed and a deadline of Sunday December 2nd was set to give Emily a 10 euro deposit.
Next we selected our committee for the year with Vernon returned as chair, Lillian as secretary and Mick as treasurer. Mick and Maura agreed to stay on as walks`coordinators.
The meeting finished with a discussion about our trips away for 2019. See below.
Spring Weekend Away
There are many hotels in Nerja ranging from 1 to 4 star. Apartments are also available should people decide to share. Early booking is advisable. Caution: some of the cheaper accommodation is on the edge of town, though this is not often clear from the booking sites. Check with Vernon before booking, as being in the centre of town is a distinct advantage for access to walks. Areas to avoid when booking hotel/apartment include Maro, Capistrano, Torrecilla and Burriana.
Walks will be lead by Vernon and Emily. Temperatures should be in the low twenties Celcius.
Those interested please contact Vernon as we are hoping to get an indication of numbers as soon as possible - by Monday November 5th.
