After returning from our wonderful Mekong Adventure, life on the sunny Costa Blanca quickly returned to normal and Vernon’s involvement with the Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir moved up a notch when he became Publicity Officer and very soon afterwards Vice President as well!

This is a particularly busy year for the choir which is celebrating its 10th anniversary and also playing host to a visit by the prestigious Pontarddulais Male Choir on May 6. Consequently, Vernon has been busy preparing press releases, designing posters and programmes for concerts. The 10th Anniversary Concert was played in front of a packed audience in the beautiful Benitachell church (photo left) and bookings are going well for the big concert with the Welsh choir in the 600-seat Auditori Teulada on May 6. You can watch videos of the 10th Anniversary Concert on the choir’s Facebook page.

Vernon is also involved with the imminent launch of a new local radio station called Valley FM and will be presenting programmes 14 hours per week. Fortunately, these programmes will all be pre-recorded and so won’t interfere with our gardening, walks in the mountains and many other activities we are enjoying in our retirement!
