The Almanzora Group of Friends was officially founded in 2000 and it now exists to do what it says, literally getting people together as friends.

Make friends in Almeria

With a library and numerous events it serves the English speaking community in a number of towns including Arboleas, Albox, Alfoquia and Huercal Overa.

On Monday February 19, it is planning a day trip to the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort and Nevada Shopping Centre with pick ups and returns at the towns mentioned above and cost is €22 for members and €27 for non-members.

Day trip to Sierra Nevada

Assuming that the road to the ski resort is not closed because of snow (and if so, the coach will divert to the el Dornajo Visitors Centre and then to the shopping centre) there will be a two hour stay at the resort and the adventurous could perhaps take a ride in a gondola (discount if you have a pensioner’s card).

Then the coach will take everyone to the Nevada centre which with 240 shops and restaurants, there will be several hours of retail enjoyment before heading back home.

Bookings (if space is still available) have to be made in person at the Library and Social Centre on Plaza San Antonio in Albox but visit to find out more about the organisation
