|The Camposol Residents Association|
Maite, Eloy and myself attended the pleno tonight and I am now sitting at my desk drinking a bottle of Red Wine.
|Although in being for some years as an ad hoc
organisation the Association formally adopted its constitution as a
registered voluntary organisation in the summer of 2006. (Reg No 7943/1,
CIF No : G73369167) It is dedicated to the development and well being of
Camposol in Murcia. This township is now over ten years old and has some 5000
The development has a wide range of nationalities, Dutch, Belgium, Germans, Norwegians, French, and Spanish but is primarily British. Many Brits live here permanently with others owning holiday homes. This site enables everyone and particularly those who live in the UK to keep in touch with events on Camposol and the surrounding area.
Living here is a privilege, a broad arid river valley surrounded by mountains, twenty minutes from the Mediterranean, an hours drive from Murcia Airport, the cities of Murcia, Cartagena, Lorca, the resorts of Mazarron and Aguilas. A place which has been settled from before Roman times, with the oldest boat in the world in the harbour of Mazarron.
These residents have settled here forming a very diverse community with many common interest groups and clubs. We have seen bare villas turned into palaces with magical gardens, many British owned businesses formed and developed, and the open spaces planted and tidied by the volunteer gardening groups.
We now have numerous restaurants and bars on two commercial centres. There
is a large supermarket (Consum) which stocks many British and international products, builders merchant, swimming pool
constructors and maintainers, even central heating installers!
This site contains the minutes of our
committee meetings and important announcements and press releases as well
as numerous other items of interest to the residents of Camposol. There is also a forum page open for discussions amongst all registered members of the CRA.
