I would go to one of these if it was close-ish to me on the Costa del Sol. Looking at the website there is one on Wednesday in Torrox which is a bit out of range but I would appreciate notifications about upcoming Open Days.

Ah you see, if you'd have joined the forum sooner or paid attention LOL (sorry, I'm in nag mode this morning!!) you'd have seen they had one in Torremolinos earlier this year and further along near Estapona - in fact they have them all over the heavily populated expat areas during the course of a year!!!!!
Maybe DWP should put a "year planner" on here that we could make a "sticky" or summat???????

I suppose you're right Jo...but I find it quite strange. There are people we know who still refer to the UK as "home". Have they really emigrated, or are they on holiday ?

There are alot of retired folk who come over here simply for the climate. They have no wish to intergrate or be part of the Spanish life, they like the cameradary and friendship they find with the other retirees, they like the "Britishness, quiz nights, bingo, sunday roasts, yorkshire puds, full english breakfasts..... Thats not what I want from living in Spain but if they're not taking anything from the Spanish and they're not causing anyone else any bother, then fine I guess!!

I've got friends who live in France and have done for 8 years now, they retired out there and have totally and completely intergrated into their village - she's even on the commitee of their local tennis club (whooopie!!). Every now and again they like a bit of Britishness cos they miss it. Where do they go?????? They come to stay with us IN SPAIN and go down to Benamadena everyday LOL They love it down there!!
