Thank You – from CUDECA

Thank you to everyone who came along and visited our Christmas Stall on Saturday, inside Sugar and Spice.    Although, due to the weather,  we had fewer visitors than previous years, we beat all stall records and raised 304.00 euros.  Remember that 75centimos of every euro raised, goes direct to patient care.

Brian Kirk won our Numbers board and generously donated his win back to Cudeca, and Dale Stansfield won the hamper. He also kindly donated this back to another Cudeca fund raising event.

A big thank you to everyone who made cakes, they were delicious!!

Again, thank you for continuing to support Cudeca, your local cancer charity.

Cindy Jones,   Cudeca Volunteer,  Competa.

What’s on –NADFAS

As you are probably aware, we have for many years been supporters of NADFAS (the National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies). Indeed I am currently the Treasurer of the Fuengirola Branch, Costa del Sol Decorative & Fine Arts Society (Costa del Sol Dfas) and in that capacity, would like to invite you to attend the December Lecture, which is being sponsored by Blevins Franks.

L.S. Lowry – a Visionary Artist

Salon Varieties in Fuengirola

Monday 12th December, 4.30pm

L.S. Lowry is one of Britain’s most popular artists and yet the very familiarity of his work has stopped us looking as closely as we should at this extraordinary artist. Well-known for painting the mills of the industrial north-west, he is perhaps also one of the greatest painters of the human condition himself –  he has been called the ‘T.S. Eliot of modern British art’.

The lecturer Michael Howard is Programme Leader of the MA in Visual Culture at the School of Contemporary Art History at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he teaches both academic and studio-based students. He is also President of Bolton NADFAS and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. As well as being an art historian, he is a practising painter, printmaker and ceramicist.

Michael’s has published many books, including L. S. Lowry: A Visionary ArtistVan Gogh, Monet and Cézanne. He has exhibited at the Royal Academy and represented the UK at the 2006 Varna Art Biennale.

As a valued client of Blevins Franks, we would like to invite you along as our guest.  After the lecture we will be serving Christmas drinks and mince pies at the Bar La Plaza, Plaza de la Constitución, Fuengirola. Please do come and join us.

If you would like to attend the Blevins Franks Sponsored Lecture, please reply to us by e-mail. You also need to print the entrance voucher attached here in order to gain admission.

I will be at the theatre on the 12th along with the rest of our team, we look forward to welcoming you to the lecture.

If you would like to learn more about the society and its events please visit the website www.costadelsoldfas.com

Wanted-Voltage Converter
Does anyone know where I can purchase a Voltage Converter for use with a North American electric toothbrush? It needs to convert European 240volts to North American 120volts. It would also be useful if it acted as a plug converter too but that’s not mandatory. Nerja/Torrox area would be preferable.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.
