EGM and open meeting - 26 Sept 2016

Room packed for EGM and open meeting

Extra chairs had to be brought into the meeting room at the Padre Manuel Centre Estepona for the thirty plus members who attended. The meeting unanimously voted to accept the amended statutes and to approve the sale of the Sanctuary land on the Estepona - Casares border as well as giving Treasurer Reg Winkworth authority to renogiate the terms of the mortgage.

President Mary Page, who chaired the meeting, said that disposing of the land at the best obtainable price would put a final end to the ill-conceived Sanctuary project.

Night at the Races - 26 March

Saturday 26th March at The Roadhouse Sports and Music Bar.

"Something different it certainly was! If you happened to be passing the Roadhouse Sports and Music Bar on the 26th March you most certainly would have heard the 50 or so race goers cheering on their favorite horses as they enjoyed the eight races that took place throughout the evening.


3rd Annual March March - 13 March

Once again we held our March March. This is the third year we have organized this event and each year it grows in size. Primarily we use it to showcase our dogs and to promote shelter dogs to local residents, hopefully promoting the ethos of 'don't shop, adopt'. It is also an ideal opportunity to publicize the work that ADANA does and raise our profile within the community.

ADANA Quiz Night

"Much fun was had this year at The Adana Quiz Night. We ran it once a month February through to October at The Irish Fiddler in Estepona Port. Doug Proctor was a great Quiz Master and he and his wife Finola put in a lot of hard work. We had two guest appearances from Carrie-Anne Smith and Peta Superville to give Doug a needed break and both were very professional.
