Hi everyone it's John reporting on the action at the Welcome Group over the last month.
On Friday 17th February we set out for a Three Nights Stay in Granada, staying at the 4* Melia Granada Hotel.
Everyone was blown away with the hotel. It was lovely and very central.
We all know what a super city Granada is with so much to do and see. Some took themselves off to a Flamenco show while others jumped on a bus and cable car to visit the ski slopes, which were very busy. The views are terrific from up there. On the journey home we called in on the village of Guadix, famous for its cave houses. The villagers were very friendly and opened their doors and invited us into their wonderful cave dwellings. The museum was also very interesting. Everyone had a great few days away.
We were all treated to a great show at the February Dance. Three really good artistes entertained us royally. First up was Sian with her lovely voice singing songs both old and new. After the break we had a tribute act to Meatloaf. I am an enormous fan of Meatloaf and these artistes were really good. When they finished their set the whole audience was on their feet applauding and wanting more. We got more in the form of The Commitments tribute. All three took to the stage to wow us with this group's wonderful songs. Hopefully we will see them back in the future.
