The ACrew event in November was a huge success and it was terrific to see a fresh influx of new faces enjoying The Boathouse. The weather turned out to be amazing which took away some of the pressure on delivering this great event, with the workshops being well run and attended. Friday night crew party and BBQ was another great gathering with DJ Dani L Mebius flying in from Amsterdam to get everyone dancing into Pumpkin hour with some great energetic mixes to close out the end to this season. Jjust unfortunate we had to close things down at midnight – sadly everybody’s got to have neighbours! Looking forward to hosting further events with them next Summer.
And now, with the end of 2016 rolling in like a tsunami our thoughts turn to the festive season and year end commitments … Christmas day, finding time to be with family … drink red wine, catching up with friends … drink more red wine and then the dreaded new year’s resolutions, which personally I never keep … cutting down on the Red wine!
While none of us need an excuse for a good party during the holiday season, it’s important to not lose sight of the things that make this season special. The joy of giving and the importance of connectivity, to our friends, family, religious beliefs, community and most importantly ourselves (and let’s not forget the Red Wine).
So, to get in the festive mood and help us appreciate of the true spirit of Christmas, we’ve got a couple of great gatherings and offers planned during this month ….
‘Tis the Season to be Merry
Dreaming of a White Christmas (or red), come join us for The Islanders year end get together on Friday 2nd December for some good old fashioned Christmas Cheer and Holiday Fun.

WHITE CHRISTMAS SAYNG
The Joy of Giving and the Magic of Santa
This time of year, hopefully exemplifies our generosity and charitable spirit, for me it’s a time for children, a time especially where no child should suffer or go without. Sadly, within the Balearics there are so many children in need, but thankfully there are committed individuals who work tirelessly to raise funds and bring a little joy to their lives, not just during the Christmas season, but all year around.
So, on Saturday 10th December, we are honoured to join up with the JoyRon Foundation again to bring you ‘Carols by Candlelight, A Christmas Extravaganza’.
With over 4 hours of live entertainment from both school and adult Choirs, children’s rock band and numerous local musicians, Santa’s Grotto, Bouncy Castle, Outdoor kid’s movie, Xmas fayre, mulled wine and general craft and gift stalls, there is something for everyone.
Nothing feels more special than when people connect and give part of themselves, their time, their presence, and their laughter. Please take the time to support this great cause and make a moment magical for a child this Christmas.
