The Torrevieja U3A Walking/Hiking group were back on the road on Saturday 29th January when they took to the hills.for a walk through the saltwater dry river bed around San Isidro. 26 members took part  in the 10 km walk, which was quite a  challenging task, and took about 4 hours to complete the route.

This was the first walk of the year and it is hoped that a similar number of walkers will attend the February hike which will be to The Murals in Crevillente.

Monday 1st February saw the first meeting of 2022 of the Torrevieja U3A Military History Group at Punta Marina. 25 members attended and were treated to an informative and entertaining presentation which was provided by Shenagh who is one of the association’s members.

The talk was on the subject of the Roman era in the UK and detailed how their frontiers were established and why.

After the talk the majority stayed on for a light lunch in The Captain’s Table.
