The usual general meeting business was replaced by another spectacular Christmas show – the annual Extravaganza.
The fun began with a performance by the Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir. It was followed by a series of sketches and musical groups by U3A members.
The committee was unrecognisable in the shortened version of Hungarian Cinderella. And members Lyndsey and Gary Johnson were hilarious in their respective sketches as an aerobics instructor and ‘father of the bride’.

Linda Coughlin and Val Dromgoole finished the show as ‘stripping cleaners’!
The show was masterminded and compered by the U3A’s Events Co-ordinator Shirley King.
After the finale and an appreciative round of applause from the audience, there was the usual tradition of sherry and mince pies …. consumed in vast quantities by the 300 or so members who attended.
