Welcome back to the CBWS Newsletter after our summer break.
Many of our members met in July for Gaby Ferenczy’s funeral in Javea. It was our chance to meet each other, albeit at a sad time, as Gaby was one of our long term and special members. We send our best wishes to Barbara and to Gaby’s family.
