After the meeting yesterday I found out that El Paraiso (our meeting place)will be closed in January,Therefore our meeting on the 2ND JANUARY IS CANCELLED.Our meeting in February will be on the 6th,at 1500.This causes a few problems. Anyone wishing to bring anything up at the A.G.M. in March, I will need your written question to reach me by the 15th Jan,so it can be forwarded on to the Secretary for printing,only what is on the agenda for the A.G.M. can be discussed at the A.G.M. On the same subject,if your membership is not up to date ,you may not vote in the A.G.M.
On a lighter note the dinner/dance that Dick is organising for the 14thFeb,at Mil Palmares,if you have not put your name down,send me the details and I will pass them on to Dick,and he will need your money at the meeting on the 6th Feb.
There will be a Menu del dia in Jan when we have a venue /time/date, if anyone has a suggestions for a venue please let me know ASAP so that we can get it organised.Hope you all have a happy xmas and sober new year(for our Scots contingent).
Yours Aye



Shipmate Bryan Dalton was voted in as the new Standard Bearer for the Royal Naval Association, Torrevieja Branch at their September meeting.  His first official engagement with the Standard was for the Royal Air Forces Association Battle Britain service at La Siesta Church on 15th September when he was unfazed by the torrential rain in Torrevieja that morning, kept calm and carried out his duties admirably.

Bryan, originally from Lincolnshire, joined the Royal Navy as a boy of 15 starting on HMS St Vincent in Gosport and served for twenty five years before retiring from The Royal Navy as a Chief Petty Officer.

The Royal Naval Association, Torrevieja Branch are always ready to welcome new members regardless of whether or not they have served in The Royal Navy.  As well as our meetings which are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 1500 hours in Bar El Paraiso near Carrefour in Torrevieja, we have monthly lunches and various functions throughout the year.  For more information please call Chairman Paul Edwards on 618644934, Vice Chairman Danny Kay on 966716274 or Secretary Margaret Forshaw on 966921996.  We look forward to meeting you!
