The incorporation of Beniarbeig Town Hall into the Xarxa Jove de la Marina Alta has allowed a group of young people aged between 16 and 18 from various countries, such as France and Italy, to help with tasks to adapt the old school into a space for young people in collaboration with the Councillor for Youth. .
The campaign is part of the Agenda Valenciana Antidespoblament (AVANT) and in this case is managed by DeAmicitia, an entity which works with international volunteer camps and has a house in Sanet i els Negrals, from where the young people are collaborating with the towns and the villages in the Girona valley.
Councillor Sara Gil Peretó has thanked the volunteers for their work, as they have already helped to «take out rubbish, take out nails and put up tape prior to painting, so that the space can be available for young people from the autumn onwards».
On Saturday 12th June, the well known ‘singer of songs’ Dani Miquel visited Beniarbeig with his show «Musiqueries». The event was organised by the Councillor for Culture and funded by the Diputación de Alicante and some 350 people from all over the area attended the event, held in the playground of the old school. People young and old sang and danced to the sound of Dani Miquel who, accompanied by his full band, presented his full musical repertoire, which makes him a phenomenon in the world of children’s music. Two weeks later it was the turn of «CONT@RTE», a show based on the story of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ (1862) by Lewis Carrol. It was performed by L’Oracle de l’Est and more than 150 people attended.
The Councillor points out that the response of the families has been very positive and that both shows were able to take place in line with all COVID-19 protocols, meaning keeping a safe distance, taking temperatures, wearing masks and sanitising hands. These measures, added to the fact that the events took place outside, maximised safety.
Over the last days of June, the sports centre hosted the second multisports week organised by the Ayuntamiento de Beniarbeig,in which 39 children aged from 5 to 10 took part. Among the sports practised were court games like basketball, football and padel, but also cycling, making use of the football pitch and adjacent land to design a circuit for the bikes. As planned, the young sports fanatics also made use of the pool, not only to refresh themselves but also to play water games.
Heading the activities were the instructors Betty Llopis, Raxel Lafuente and Anabel Ahuir who say that they were very happy with the number of participants and by their attitude. In fact, Llopis said “the boys and girls have enjoyed themselves, when we asked some of them which had been their favourite activity, they started to name nearly all of them and that means that they enjoyed them”. Llopis also explained that the facilities available in the village are spacious and are in good condition, which makes it easier to do so many different sports.
From the Town Hall, the mayor Juanjo Mas also agrees that the feedback on participation was positive and he hopes that the good sensation left by the multisports week might lead to the formation of some groups in the village’s sports schools. This is fundamental for Mas «because we all know how beneficial sport is for children of these ages and the town hall has been trying to give new life to the sports schools for some time».
In fact, from now until 15th August, pre-registration is open for the village’s sports schools. The aim of pre-registration is to hold a first poll among those boys and girls interested in doing a sport, to find out the viability of forming groups for basketball, five a side football, handball, padel, volleyball or pelota, which are those on offer this year. Apart from pelota, for which you need to contact the Town Hall in El Verger, you should contact the Town Hall in Beniarbeig for more information and to pre-register, be it in person, by phone on 96 576 60 18 or by email at email@example.com.
Although the name still has to be decided, more than thirty residents attended the two meetings held in the Centro Cultural in Beniarbeig in June to show their interest in this new association.
After these two meetings it was concluded that the association will be based on volunteering, it will carry out social and environmental activities (from the temporary care of pets to the collection of rubbish from green spaces) and that the services of the association will be available to all residents whether they are members of the association or not. In the association, for the moment, languages used are Valenciano, Spanish, English, French and German.
The committee, recently elected at the second meeting of the group, intends to get the association moving before the end of July. For now, anyone interested in joining can call Sally (616237286), Maruja (630680973) or Daniel (655381656).
The last match of the season took place on 14th June between C.F Beniarbeig – VillajoyosaCF «B». With a score of 2-4 in favour of the team from the Marina Baixa, the Beniarbeig team settled for third place in the 2ª Regional Plata league, which for the general classification is the equivalent of tenth place. As the president of the club Javier Picornell Carpi explains, «this year, halfway through the season, they had to divide the league into two, because in January and February we couldn’t play and in this way they could shorten the season a bit.». This formula didn’t prevent the season from finishing a month later than usual.
The team is now resting and recovering their strength to start the pre-season training before the end of the summer. For Picornell the 2021-2022 season can be viewed with optimism because «we have managed to create a very good atmosphere within the team and most of the players intend to continue». As for the results, ahead of the new season the president hopes to be able to improve its classification, although at the moment, the biggest challenge is to find a replacement for Àlex Pulido, the trainer who has led the Beniarbeig team this season. The trainer said goodbye with a letter to the «CF Beniarbeig family», in which he doesn’t skimp on thanks to the players, the committee and the fans and in which he says how much he enjoyed his stay at the Camp del Girona. The committee confirms that they are now trying to get a replacement for Pulido, a search that is already quite well advanced and they hope soon to be able to announce a name.
During what’s left of the summer, while sporting activity is at a standstill, CF Beniarbeig will take advantage of the break to devote itself more to the social side of the club and they hope to celebrate their AGM with members at the end of July.
