The Social Team organise a number of events for the residents of Gata Residencial throughout the year. – Check the calendar on the Members Info page for upcoming events!
Generally there is at least one Charity Night during the year when we have some fun and raise money, normally for the Cruz Roja (Red Cross).
At Easter or Christmas something is organised for all the children of Gata, with previous events including Easter Egg hunts and Christmas parties with visits from Santa and his reindeer. In 2016 we went one better and hosted a very successful Christmas Extravaganza in our Fairy Park when Santa paid a visit with gifts for all the kids but we also had a Christmas Market, mulled wine, mince pies, carolling and Christmas performances from local school children.
Most months there is a Barmy Bingo evening, which is a fun way of meeting your neighbours for a drink or two. Oh… and there are prizes for the bingo winners. In addition to bingo, we also enjoy hosting the odd Quiz Night. We have recently included a bilingual element to our quizzes, with questions in both English and Spanish giving participants a perfect opportunity to practice their language skills and meet some locals in a fun, relaxed atmosphere!
Each year something is organised during the local village fiestas in July/August. Since 2016 we have participated in the fiesta in Gata de Gorgos between 28th July and 6th August with a “Barraca ” in the village square. This is our very own party stall, every year decorated in a different theme. Everyone is invited to come and join us this year in the Plaza Nueva where ancient Rome will be the theme. On 1st August we are hosting a Toga Party and anyone who makes an effort to come along appropriately dressed will be rewarded with a free drink.
In addition to all these events, we also organise regular Ladies Lunches in various different restaurants around the local area with between 30 and 40 ladies attending each one. And every year we arrange at least one shopping trip by coach, usually to coincide with Christmas. In June we also organise a coach for residents to go to the annual Moraira Music Festival.
To help you keep up to date with all this, the Social Team have a Facebook Page, Gata Residencial ST, which is frequently updated with information about everything we get up to here in this active community.
