Interclub was formed in 1983 and comprises mainly British people who either live in Spain or visit the area for holidays. It aims to provide a meeting point for ex-pats, and does this by organizing social events where you can both enjoy the function and meet and exchange views with others like you.
The full registered name of the club is the International Club of Arenales but this is rarely used nowadays, particularly with the club now being based in Gran Alacant.
The club meets once a month on Thursday evenings at the Alonai restaurant at the Santara Resort (previously Life Resort) at Gran Alacant. We stage a Quiz once a month which comprises various different types of quizzes and, sometimes, other games and 2 or 3 dances each year. For details see Programme page. The club closes for 2/3 weeks for Christmas and Easter and from end June to October for the summer.
From September 2018 there will be no annual subscription and the event fee will be €12.50 per person EXCLUDING drinks. A charge of €3 per person will be made for dances to contribute towards the cost of the musician.
The club actively supports the charity Cotalengo in Alicante. Cotalengo is an organization run by nuns which looks after poor people who are physically and/or mentally disabled. They receive no governmental support and rely on companies, organizations and individuals for their income. Club members contribute to a weekly collection to which the club adds a donation. Cotalengo is visited twice a year when the club makes donations of cash, clothes, toys books or anything else that can be turned into cash.
The current committee comprises :- Bob Newby – President and Treasurer; Jill Newby – Vice President; Bryan Grove – Secretary; Committee Members – John Denington; Peter Atkins; Barry Thompson; Angela Grove; Eddie Critchley and Iain Sheridan.
