Having sold our home in Gata de Gorgos five years ago, we returned to Spain in late 2015 and the moment we arrived back we realised how much we missed the Spanish lifestyle and now have a home in Orbeta which we love.
Having moved from the area we knew in and around Gata and Javea we joined the U3A Vall del Pop to meet people and to enhance our life here in Spain. From the first meeting we attended everyone was so welcoming and informative – so much so that I now enter my second year as Secretary, a role which I have enjoyed during the last 12 months and which I hope to continue to enjoy and develop during the next year.
I worked as a legal assistant/secretary for 35 years in various law firms and during that time was Secretary of our daughter’s PTA and a parent governor. Both John, my husband, and I have had a long interest in motorsport and I still help in the race administration office conducting driver sign-on and issuing of race results etc. One of many highlights has been working at Goodwood at the Festival of Speed and Revival meetings.
I’m really looking forward to the challenges of continuing to be an active member of the U3A and working hard on the committee!
