Easter Bonnet Parade
April 9, 2023
Bar Tuta Jarin Botanico La Cala De Mijas
30th year for Easter Parade Eggstraviganza!
Yes it certainly was a parade of the prettiest hats on Easter Sunday when over 70 fun-loving folk ventured out to Bar Tuta to experience the fun and games only John Sharples can supply and to partake of great food and service from all the staff. Held for the past 30 years by Anne Bowles and her late husband Frank as a charity event, today was in aid of the La Cala Lions Diabetic Support Group. There was so much going on - quizzes from Graham, Musical Bingo and jokes galore from our MC John and plenty of participants for the Easter Bonnet Competition - including three men and some dear little girls. Also helping to swell the funds was a raffle, an auction and guess the name of a massive Teddy bear. Everyone joined in and thanks to Avalon Funeral Plans for the welcome drinks and to Ibex Insurance for their kind donation too. Hot Cross Buns finished off the afternoon and nearly 700 euros was raised and special thanks to all who came and to those Lions and friends who helped to make the day a success. Congratulations to Jo who won the Ladies Prize and thanks to Wynson Beswick the Lions President for judging a very difficult competition.
