  • Myra Cecillia Azzopardi from the Citizens Advice Bureau Spain will be speaking at an event organised by the U3A

Myra Cecillia Azzopardi from the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) Spain will be talking to members of the U3A (University of the Third Age) Axarquía, as well as anyone who wishes to attend, on the subject of Brexit and how it will affect Britons living in Spain.

The talk will take place on 13 April at 11am at the Parquesol restaurant in El Morche.

U3A and CAB are keen to point out that the event is not a debate on Brexit, but simply giving information following the latest developments concerning agreements made in December last year.

Terry Brady has been president of the U3A Axarquía since last June and he is working towards extending the activities offered. He explains that there is no minimum age and all nationalities are welcome. The U3A currently offers cycling, singing for pleasure, book club, creative writing, photography and discussion groups and the president explains that there is always the possibility to start up other groups as long as there is interest and someone willing to lead them.

U3A Axarquía also holds general interest events, such as the CAB Brexit presentation and Christmas celebrations.

Most general meetings take place at the Parquesol restaurant in El Morche but other groups meet in different venues around the Axarquía, both along the coast and inland.

“Once the idea of sun, sea and sangria wears off, people moving to the Costa del Sol look for something to occupy their brain, body and vocal chords,” explains Terry and says that this explains why U3A has 150 members from different countries and is growing. Membership is six euros per year.
