The Almanzora Group of Friends was originally started in 1998 as a means of sharing information, and giving advice to people who had decided to move to this beautiful area of Spain – the Almanzora Valley.

The Group is totally self-funding and not affiliated to any political or religious organisation.

Almanzora Group of Friends - group 2016Our Library and Information Centre is situated in Avenida Lepanto, Albox, 100 metres down from Mercadona and next door but one to Bugsy’s Bar, and is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 to 13:00.

The library has a large selection of books, videos, DVDs and computer games for adults and children and new titles are added every month.

We have a list of translators who can help with legal and medical matters. They are independent of the Group and charges should be negotiated individually.

The staff in the Centre are all volunteers who provide a friendly welcome and will try and help you with any information.


Coach trips, both days out and holidays, form an integral part of the Group’s activities and introduce members to other beautiful parts of Spain.

The subscription is 12 euros per annum and includes our monthly newsletter which can be picked up in the centre. Renewals are due in January.


Quiz Nights
Maloan’s - Albox - 8pm. Quiz Nights & Library Clearance Sale

PLEASE NOTE: Due to flooding at Maloans Bar, the December 5 quiz has been cancelled.
  • Monday 2nd January 2017

In view of the December 5 cancellation, there will be a combined quiz on Monday 19 December with funds split between four charities (AGoF, AUAN, APSA and PiRDA)

It will be a quiz but with a few fun games too so it'll be a bit different and a bit Christmas party-ish!!!!

The funds raised will go to their respective good causes.
