Events to help you become part of the Costa del Sol community

Renting long term is a great way to start your life on the Costa del Sol. Once you have found your long term rental and got all your paperwork sorted, it’s time to start making friends, contacts and integrating into your community. There are many ways to do this of course, but a good way is to join in with some of the many events that take place for expats.

Next month Nicole King is once again bringing together members of the Marbella international community for the United Nationalities of Marbella Summit on the 14th of May. Now in its fourth year, this is a chance for residents of the Costa del Sol to have their voice heard and get involved with making it a safer, more productive and inclusive community.

Anyone can get involved and go along to this free event. If you are renting long term, bringing up a family and perhaps running a business here on the Costa del Sol, you can have your voice heard and take part in making Marbella even better for now and the future.

The focus this year is filling in the gaps and supporting Marbella’s teens. So, if you have a business that could provide a service for teens and get great promotion and new customers in doing so, or if you are a parent with children and want to make it a better place for them, Nicole would like to hear from you.

Events like these are an excellent way to make new contacts and friends and share your hopes and fears. It’s a great place to network!

There are many other events and organizations which you can join to feel more connected with the community. Costa Women organizes many social and business events up and down the coast and has an excellent website where you can ask questions and make contacts. Expats World and Internations are two other active groups which regularly organize social events and activities.

There are a number of excellent business associations too, which all hold regular networking meetings. These are a brilliant way to build your business network and attract new clients and make useful collaborations. To find out about upcoming meetings and groups, take a look at the Facebook group Networking and Events Costa del Sol.  

Look out for events arranged by the Town Hall and particularly the Foreign Residents Department. They organize social events, information evenings and are generally a good contact to help you to integrate into your community.

Get out there and get actively involved in your community and events so you can make the most of living in Spain!

Getting involved in your local community

When you move to a new country and start a new life it can be easy to feel a bit lost and disconnected from your local community. But if you are renting long term on the Costa del Sol there are loads of great clubs, societies and charities that you can join, make friends, have fun and in the case of the charities, make a real difference to those in need.

One of those charities who have been calling out for the help of volunteers is the Age Care Association. This is a charity that helps the local older English speaking community on the Costa del Sol and has drop in centres in Calahonda, Los Boliches and Benalmadena. They are looking for volunteers to do home visits, arrange quizzes and larger events and to man the advice centre in Calahonda. This is a great way to get to know people and do something really good in the process, call 952 933 409 or email info@agecarecosta.org for more information.
