Companians is a social club based in Albir which has been going for over 15 years. Pre pandemic, they held a meeting at the Rober Palas hotel every Tuesday morning – prior to that it was held at the Albir Gardens resort.
Although most members are British expats who have settled in the area, there are also other nationalities such as Spanish, Dutch and German who are all made to feel very welcome.
The club is run by a committee made up of Tony Baker, Irena Bodnarec, Rada Haupt, Isobel Marley, Lesley Taylor and Victoria Wright plus a team of helpers, without who the club would not manage.
Post weekly meeting, at which in the region of 100+ attend, there is the Tuesday Lunch Club – (TLC) which dine out at a different Albir restaurant each week – helping to support the local economy.
The club has a free book and DVD library for members to use. There are also regular weekly activities such as Petanca, Table Tennis, 10 pin Bowling and organised mountain walks plus a leisurely (monthly) Sunday stroll.
There are also regular day trips and excursions, dinner dances and even shorts away including cruises. We work closely with a number of reputable tour operators to get the best prices.
Over the years, the club has supported a number of charities including Cruz Roja, MABS Cancer Support, Alzheimer´s, Doggie Angells, G4G and Alfaz & Benidorm Food Banks, donating thousands of euros raised by the members.
Yearly membership is just €15 and entitles you to discounts on trips organised by the club as well as discounts from numerous local businesses on production of the card. See the ´Club discounts¨ section of those participating.
Due to the current health situation, we are not holding official weekly meetings as the hotel is closed. Instead, a number meet up at Godoy´s restaurant – alongside the big car park where the Sunday morning market is held, for an informal coffee – from 11am onwards. You will be able to book any events – see Lesley, Isobel or Jacky.
