The Informal English Speaking Group of Loja starts its 6th Year!
Law firm De Cotta, McKenna & Santafe, continue their support of the group with a talk in February.
The February 2nd meeting of the Informal English Speaking Group marks the beginning of its 6th year.
Started by Peter and Patricia Love in February 2004 the Group has gone from strength to strength and now has had no less than 400 people through its books. From the start it was intended that the group should be totally informal – no fee, no Committee, no agendas, no minutes, no formalities! The meetings were solely designed to be somewhere where English speakers (no matter their nationality) and people new to Loja and the surrounding area could meet and make friends.
Good contacts have been made with the Consulate, with De Cotta McKenna Y Santafé (who give free regular talks and updates on some of the more frequently asked questions and difficulties that can arise when moving to live in a new country) and with various Spanish and British businesses within Loja. The Hotel Almazara has also been extremely cooperative in letting the group use the hotel for their meetings.
The group is now representative of the international community and there is a wide diversity in age and nationality. To date there are members of 12 different nationalities.
Everyone is welcome to come along – the group meet on the first Tuesday of every month from 12 noon until 2pm at the Hotel Almazara, Riofrio, Nr. Loja.
