San Anton - 15 Jan 2011

Celebration of San Anton.

The weather was glorious on Saturday, January 15th for ADANA’s fourth annual celebration of the Fiesta of San Antón the patron Saint of domestic animals which attracted a good crowd of animal lovers and their pets.


Car boot sale - 4 Dec 2010

December sees another new event which we hope will become a regular monthly feature.

This Saturday, 4th December from 10-2 we are holding a car boot sale at Bar Eden on the Forest Hills road.

There is plenty of space for stalls which only cost € 10 per pitch so if you have goods to sell – or like a rummage amongst other people's- this is the opportunity!

Please note that commercial traders are not permitted.

ADANA Dog Show - 8 May 2011

The XXIst annual ADANA dog show was held in the Palacio de Congresos in Estepona.

This year we had a new date and some new classes. The agility and obedience classes were adapted so that more novices or complete new comers can participate. The new classes emphasise the relationship between owner and dog and responsible care for your pet when out together in public.

The following is a list of the winners:


Christmas Fair a Great Success

The ADANA Christmas Fair on Sunday 5th December 2010 at the Palacio de Congresos, Estepona was a great success again with €8,404.84 raised. This was due largely to Helen's efforts on the raffle; on the run up to Christmas she alone sold €1,850.00 and with her helpers brought in €5,270.50.

We were able to attract 29 "outside" stalls although some of these were disappointed with their takings. Others, I'm glad to report were extremely happy with business done!

The Isabel Ortega dancers did a wonderful job keeping us entertained and special thanks also to Santa Malcolm and Marjatta on shiatsu.


Art Exhibition 1-15 Oct

Tery Fuentes art exhibition at the Delegación de Juventud, Plaza de las Flores in Estepona from  1 to 15 October 2010. Proceeds from the sales of two of her works will be donated to ADANA.

Bridge Tournament - 7 Nov


Sunday, 7th November 2010.

After an absence of 2 years Helen Oldfield was able to re-instigate this important event.

It’s important as it is a relatively untapped area (both geographically and socially) for us and  is held at the Bridge Club on the Golden Mile, Marbella.

Although all 12 tables were booked and the event a sell out, at the last moment 4 tables had to cancel due to a mystery virus circulating amongst Bridge players.

However with an auction and raffle we were very pleased to raise €912 owing to the fact that nobody claimed expenses and donated all the goods. Our special thanks for this to Helen, and to Trisha Mansfield for providing the finger buffet.

Picture Cat Show - 19 Sept

The Picture Cat Show held at the ADANA Dog Show on 19 September 2010 at the Palacio de Congresos in Estepona was a great success with 59 entries.  The judges found selecting the winners very difficult as the cats were all so gorgeous and obviously so well loved!

Unfortunately some entries came in too late to be printed and thus entered, while some were only delivered late on Saturday.  Those received, but too late for judging, were still displayed.  Next year you will have much earlier notice of the show and so lots of time to get your winning entries in!
