We have a new Flamenco beginners’ class, starting on September 7th at the Pensionistes Building, 1st floor, from 11:00 - 12:00 hours. The charges will be 5 euros per person per class and the first class will be FREE. There will be a chance for everyone to learn this exciting dance and to progress to even more difficult routines! 

Would you be interested in becoming part of our small Travel Team?

Your Committee and I are looking for volunteers to help with planning trips and events for 2022-23.  You would not need to attend every trip nor would you need to serve on the U3A Oliva Committee.   Any little volunteer role would be more than welcome – for example, taking the names of members before they start a bus trip or liaising with a venue to book a Coffee Morning.  No experience in planning events or trips is necessary.

Remember:

Together

Everyone

Achieves

Interested?  Please get in touch with me and we’ll take it from there.  Let’s ‘hit the road’ in 2022-23!
