What’s on  Probus of Velez Malaga

Meeting Tuesday 9th May at El Trapiche Restaurant

Probus meets on each second and fourth Tuesday of every month throughout the year. The members meet for lunch at El Trapiche Restaurant, El Trapiche for 2pm and normally have a guest speaker on the first meeting of the month. The members also enjoy various ?away days? during the year. The last of these was a visit for members and their partners to the Ron Montero Rum Factory and then to the Sugar Museum in Motril. A really interesting visit that opened our eyes to how important  Motril was in the production of rum and sugar dating back to the 16th Century. Then off to Hotel Salobrena for a delightful lunch.
Probus is a worldwide organization, and our membership is open to all professional retired gentlemen living in the Axarquia area.
Why not come along (and bring a friend)  to our next meeting on Tuesday 9th May and see what Probus is about, or for more information please contact the secretary at admin @ probusvelezmalaga dot com for more details.



What’s on- Book signing by local author  

Local author John Hardy will be at 2 events this weekend – on

worthy cause, there will be dog classes and loads of stalls.

Also on Sunday 7th May at Día del Níspero in Sayalonga from 11.30. If you have never been to this one, it’s a great day out with loads of stalls, live entertainment all day, free nísperos, etc etc.

All the books will be available to buy, some versions translated into Spanish and German too. Most of the books are short stories of crime and mystery, some set in this area, some set worldwide, and ‘East Side Stories’ set just in the UK, from Hadrian’s Wall down to the Thames. The latest book is ‘Sedella – the story of a Spanish village’ which is a mix of historical facts about the village from prehistoric times to the present day, with fictional stories illustrating each period of history.

Signed copies of all books are always available from us here in Sedella, email wendy.sedella @ hotmail.com to arrange this. For more information on all books, see John’s webpage www.johnhardybooks.com
