About

Activities:

  • Children’s Christmas party: This is organised 2-3 weeks before Christmas every year, and is always well attended.  The children not only have a good time they also receive a Christmas present from the organisation.
  • Disco Nights: The Organisation’s young members got to know each other and made new lasting friendships.
  • Ladies buffet: Ladies, members of the Organisation prepare delicious, with traditional recipes, food and cakes for Kalavasiotes & friends get-together evenings.  Lately this event is combined with the Children’s party, thus giving the opportunity for whole families to be together.
  • Kalavasos Souvla event: this takes place every year in early July.  It is always well attended and apart from good traditional souvla, open-air games are organised and good time is had by all.
  • Dinner and Dances: These do not take place every year, but when they do they are successful and enjoyable.
  • Pensioners Dinners: From time to time the Committee organise special evening for grand parents.  Reminiscing
    stories of Kalavasos life in the bygone years and the early and difficult years in the new country normally last well into the night.
  • Bus Trips: So far visited: Cambridge, Bognor Regis, Isle of Wight, France.  Always well attended and Kalavasiotes and friends have memorable times together.
