Room calle Dr. Calatayud, Moraira

As some of you may know, we have been trying to obtain a place for some of our meetings, considering that lack of suitable meeting locations is the main obstacle to creating new groups and a major headache for group leaders.

After several months of discussion, the Teulada-Moraira ayuntamiento have kindly offered us the use of their room in calle Calatayud 45.

The room is suitable for meetings of up to 30-40 people, with 17 chairs + 3 folding chairs available at the moment. More chairs can be added if required and if requested in advance.

There is now an Internet connection, thanks to a U3A sponsored access point, which makes it suitable for groups like Smartphones and Tablets, Computers, Photography, Matters Arising, etc.

We also intend to use the U3A projector and a projection screen.

U3A equipment will be stored in one of the lockable cupboards which the ayuntamiento promise to make available for our use.

The room is located on the first floor, a small lift is available, which makes it accessible for people who would have trouble climbing the steps.

The room is normally locked and the group leader or a deputy has to pick them up from the concierge of La Senieta.

Very important – after use, the room has to be left clean, air conditioning turned off, windows closed  – ready for use by the next group, whether U3A of other, while U3A owned equipment will have to be stored in the cupboard and locked, ready for use by the next group.

The group leader will be responsible for making sure that everything is tidy, locked up and that the key is returned to the concierge at la Senieta.

Cancellations

If, for any reason, the group does not intend to use the room on one or more of the dates booked, the facility has to be cancelled in advance, under penalty of cancellation of further bookings by the ayuntamiento – they take a dim view of unused facilities and consider it a sign of disrespect for the effort they make on our behalf – at no charge to us.

 

The photographs below give an idea of the kind of the facilities available and the amount of space.


Summary of facilities:

  • 1st floor, lift available
  • Air conditioning and heating
  • Windows protected by blinds, there is a promise of light-proof blinds, which should help with projections
  • Wifi available – through a U3A owned access point
  • 20 chairs, more can be made available on request
  • Sound – facilities not available, each group should provide own equipment, until we can pool some of the existing facilities for groups using the room – work in progress
  • Keys held by la Senieta concierge – leaders will be responsible for picking up and returning them after the meeting
  • Each group will set up the room according to its needs and leave it tidy and ready to use by the next group
  • All U3A equipment should be stored in the cupboard and locked
  • Please respect strictly the cancellation policy, or we may have to face cancellations of our bookings

The following groups have requested to use rooms at la Senieta and will therefore have time allocated in the new facility, once it’s confirmed:

  • Computers
  • Photography
  • Smartphones and Tablets
  • Matters Arising
  • Genealogy
  • Creative Writing

For new requests

Piotr Azia deals with facilities requests at la Senieta and the room of calle Calatayud, with Lynn Clarke assisting as required: contact Piotr Azia and Lynn Clarke at: requests@u3amoraira-teulada.org, indicating:

  • Name of the group
  • Group leader(s) with contact information
  • Time and frequency of meetings (please allow a certain flexibility, as we may have to fit you into an available time slot)
  • Facilities required
  • Number of people expected
  • Any other useful information about the group and its activity (if not already shown already on the group’s page on this site, of course)

We will place a request with the ayuntamiento on your behalf, but please take into account that it’s quite a complex bureaucratic process, which may take several weeks.

The presence of a request only means that I am working on it – it doesn’t mean that it’s  confirmed!
