Torrox Spanish History Group:
-We are off on another adventure, we are going by coach on the 10th April to Italica which will include a visit to the Monasterio de San Isidoro del Campo, a wonderful old derelict monastery with a wonderful museum which is only 1.5 km from Italica in the town of Santiponce.
-On Tuesday 2nd April due to our original speaker going on a cruise, I will instead be giving a talk on the writer Gerald Brenan. When Brenen first came to Spain he lived in the village of Yegan in the Alpujarras and there is a trip planned sometime in September to visit the village as well as a visit to the English Cemetery where both Brenen and his wife Gamel Woolsey are buried.
-We are lucky enough to once again have Joan Fallon giving another one of her fascinating talks. Joans talk will be on the “Golden Age of the Moorish occupation” and will take place on the 14th May, 2019. Joan will also be bringing a collection of her books along for people to purchase. See enclosed list.

Stolen!: This Trek mountain bike was stolen from my apartment in Laguna Beach Complex, Torrox Costa, between 12 and 1pm, Sunday 24th March. The thieves forced a ground floor window and climbed into the conservatory/balcony. Black/blue frame, with white front forks. Black saddle with a white gel saddle cover. Attached to the handlebars was a Garmin GPSMAP 64. Also stolen was a grey helmet and tyre pump. Complex was full of weekenders, so it’s probably on its way to Madrid, or Granada.
