We ❤️ Albir has now installed two “Happy to Chat” benches on the sea front promenade in Albir, with the support of the Town Hall agency Welcome L’Alfas.

The basic idea of these “buddy benches” is just to invite people to talk to each other, reduce loneliness and encourage friendly communities.

Pictured having the first chat on the benches are two of our regular contributors, AnneLise Johannessen and Sydney Hartas, joined by Luis Miguel Morant Aparisi , the Councillor for Tourism and the environment, Martine Mertens the Councillor for Foreign affairs and our own Dino Trubbianelli. Thanks to Majbrit Jessen and the official town hall photographer for taking photos.

You can find the benches on the seafront promenade at the end of the barranco dry river (boulevard de los músicos) and another opposite Bar Tapas, close to the anchor.

We hope that you will find time to sit on the bench and hopefully find someone interesting for a chat!
