THE Royal British Legion’s Javea branch recently enjoyed a three-day jolly to Ibiza.

The primary objective was enabling a couple of members living off Javea’s Arenal to avoid the racket from the Rock Festival but it turned into a mass trip.

Branch Members set off for Ibiza on the Denia ferry on May 19 and were able to cram so much in over the next three days, based in the pretty seafront town of Santa Eulalia, a short distance from Ibiza town. 

The crossing over and back was great, with calm conditions and perfect weather after weeks of torrential rain. 

There was plenty of laughter, great food, pretty scenery, beautiful weather, dancing and relaxing.  Most of the group took the road train through the back roads to the Hippy Market and saw some amazing countryside, typical Ibizan villages and beautiful beaches. 

Everyone had a great time and agreed that this should become a regular annual event. 

“We can’t promise this much fun every weekend, but we can always offer friendship and support,” said Javea’s branch secretary Louise Hunt.  

“You don’t need to have served in the Armed Forces to become a member.”
