What’s on –Singing for Pleasure Group                      The U3A Singing group is reforming after a year’s break.  This fun group is for anyone who enjoys singing for the sheer enjoyment of opening their lungs and singing for a couple of hours each month in convivial company.  We are not a choir and don’t perform in public, but get together once a month to sing our favourite songs including traditional, folk, pop, songs from the shows etc. All chosen by you, the participants.  All nationalities are welcome with their songs. The health benefits of Singing are well documented – it’s good for both body and soul so come and join us at The Parquesol Restaurant, El Morche, on the last Thursday of the month from 11am till 1pm.  Please note: 1) there is ample parking across the Street from Parquesol and 2)there is no fee for singing but non-U3A participants will be encouraged to join U3A for a 6€ membership a year.  For more info on U3A see www.u3aaxarquia.com.  Singing Group leaders: Maggie and Gerry email: silwoodmg@yahoo.co.uk.


What’s on-: Chiki’s Wednesday Cooking Classes           Our ‘’Canning’’ cooking class has attracted confusion since we mention that each participant will go home with their own preserved jar.  Where is the ‘’can’’ ¿? I have been asked…  Well, the term canning is an American term.  British English prefers to call this process ‘’preserving’’ food.  So on Wed. March 28, Antonio, Manager of Chiki BioRestaurant, will offer a cooking class for preserving vegetables in salt water and vinegar but participants can add or omit the salt as they please.  Starting promptly at11am, join us for an interesting food preserving class and meet other ‘’foodies’’ in the region.  And you’ll go home with a finished jar all of your own of veggie yummies.  Cost: 10€ per person.                       Important:  If you plan to join us please sign up no later than this  3/25 as the teacher needs to prepare the ingredients.  Future cooking classes will be announced so, watch this space!!  Chiki’s exact Location: As you face the sea, Chiki is on the beach to the left of the bridge between Algarrobo and Mezquitilla.  Chiki’s Webpage: www.chikibeachclub.com.  To register by March 23th, or for further information contact norma at: norma2kk @ aol.com.
