The Women’s Association of Hacienda del Alamo has been set up for all the ladies who live, own, work or who are associated with Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort. Our aim is for ladies to meet each other and do activities, or go on trips together. There have been a vast number of interests that the ladies are interested in, so we will try and arrange to do as many of them as possible.

We are an official Association, having registered with the Head Office of the Asociacion de Mujeres, in Murcia.
We have around 280 ladies who have joined our group, mainly English, and of course Spanish, but many other nationalities, ranging from Scottish, Irish, Welsh, French, Belgian, German, Dutch, to Norwegian, Russian, Canadian, South African, Brazilian, Filipino, Hungarian, Serbian, Romanian, Danish, Argentinian, Columbian Ukranian, 
Kazakhstan, Dominican Republic, Latvia, Thai, Malaysian and Chinese.

We meet at the Golf Club house VIP Room, every Wednesday at 10.00 am. If there are enough ladies, we will go for a walk, unless we have organized some other event. Otherwise we will just have a coffee and a natter.
The motto of our Asociacion is “We are here for you”.

Have a look at the list of Activities we have organised for the next few months and if you are interested in joining us with any of them, or, if you wish to join our Asociacion, then please contact us.


Most of the ideas for the outings we have planned, we found on the Murcia Today website. It is a really interesting and informative website.


TEA PARTY
As part of the celebration of International Women's Day on 8th March, the Town Hall of Fuente Álamo decided, as last year, that each of the ten Women's Associations of Fuente Álamo and the surrounding villages, should do something to involve the ladies of the other Women's Associations, within the same area.


At the meeting Laurence and myself went to in February, we were asked to organize an Afternoon Tea Party as we did last year. They said that it was so successful, they wanted us to do another one!! For those of you who remember, last year we held the Tea Party on the Queen's 90th Birthday, 21st April and we had around 150 ladies come along. One stipulation the Town Hall asked for was for everyone to wear a hat. This they asked last year as well, but even though most of our ladies wore a hat, not many of the Spaniards did!

This year we arranged for it be held on Thursday 30th March, as last year, in the VIP Lounge at the Club House. Again, we asked our ladies to all make or buy, something, be it a cake, sandwiches, or some dish from their own country. We sent out invitations to all the other nine associations, and also to the shops in Fuente Álamo and had a tremendous response from our ladies as well as the ladies from Fuente Álamo and all the villages under the umbrella of Fuente Álamo.


Laurence and myself bought some decorations, ordered carnations to give to each lady and balloons, plus various other things, but then I had my foot operation so was unable to continue helping. But, thankfully we have such a wonderful group of ladies here, that a number stepped up to help with decorating the room and helping with the organization.

 

On the day, the weather was really kind to us, luckily, although we did have three pergolas which the Town Hall had loaned us, just in case. Our ladies had done a superb job in decorating the room and moving the furniture around to give maximum space. There were three large round tables set up for the food and other tables set up for tea, coffee and cava. Laurence had organized a couple of ladies for each of the previously mentioned tables to serve the guests. There was another lady giving each lady a ticket for the cava and another two downstairs giving each lady a carnation. We had asked Bill Townsend, an owner here and the husband of a member, to play some music during the afternoon, which he did admirably. 

We had well over 250 ladies come along, almost all of them wearing a hat! Around 50 were our ladies. Some of the outfits worn, were beautiful, everyone had really made an effort. It was a super afternoon, with all the food going, whereas last year we had quite a lot left over, because, some of the Spanish had not realized there was food, so had eaten beforehand! Obviously they had remembered not to eat first, this year! Even the mayor came, to present the 'Woman of the Year' trophy to a lady from Fuente Álamo. For about the last hour, many ladies were dancing on the terrace outside, then just before 18.00hrs the Channel 7 Murcia, TV reporters came to do some interviews and film the activities. Unfortunately quite a few had gone home by then. But, they still managed to get a few interviews in and join in the dancing! It was broadcast on Friday evening.

All in all it was another truly amazing afternoon and so many Spanish said how much they had enjoyed themselves.
