English Church Service in Lloret

English speaking church service's are to be held at Les Alegries church on the first Sunday of every month as from 12.00 hrs 5th February 2012. The services will held by Father Shea who will welcome all nationalities to his Christian services.
Father Shea has worked extremely hard for the past 9 months to achieve the go ahead for these services in Lloret. Refreshments will be served afterwards and you will also be able to have a chat to Father Shea who will be only too pleased to hear about any ideas or events which people of the local community may have or would like to see in the future. In the meantime he would like to hear from anyone who could possibly volunteer some of their time at future events, and is especially desperate to find an organ player who could volunteer their musical skills in the church! either with or without their own organ, the church does have it's own PA system.
I have met Father Shea today and he is so full of enthusiasm about his new venture and really wants to get something good going for Lloret de Mar.  He is wanting to organise garden fetes, bring & buy sales and BBQ's all of which he hopes will help to raise money for charity and the church, so he will also welcome any ideas you may have of which charities you would like to see benefit from these events. This pretty little church which can be found just on the outskirts of Lloret on the Girona road has a bar, it's own village band and well tended grounds which are ideal for any get-together.


On a more serious note you can also contact Father Shea for weddings, marriage vow renewal, bereavement counseling or any other matter you feel he may be able to help you with. For more information you can contact Father Shea at lesalegrieschurch@gmail.com

Lloret de Mar Today


It was a bright sunny day in Lloret for the organised swimming event....we went over  there to see them all taking to the sea for the 12.30 session, and hopefully get some photos. As you can see nothing much happening at all. Either they felt it was too cold or the official Lloret site has given out wrong information..again!
Of course, now I remember why this site was started!!

New Years Eve in Lloret


 Happy New Year To all Readers 

New years eve in Lloret and the town was partying ! Most of the big clubs had organised special events for this special night, but several of the British bars and Spanish bodegas were closed as they celebrated the New Year with their families and friends. Here's some photos of the celebrations in Buzzbys....
Fancy dress??   No its always like this!!


The old Spanish tradition is that  as the bells are chiming 12 each person has 12 grapes and for each chime they have to swallow one grape, and if they succeed in swallowing them all before the end of the chimes then its said they will have good luck for the following year ....... its not as easy as it sounds!
