Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Social Scene - By Alex Watkins awatkins@cb­

THE GUARDAMAR men­tal health as­so­ci­a­tion (ASMEGU) has been busy this month, at a con­fer­ence about car­ers at Tor­re­vieja hospi­tal, and go­ing on ex­cur­sions or­gan­ised by the town hall.

Chil­dren and their fam­i­lies were among those who went on the first day out of the coun­cil’s recre­ation pro­gramme es­pe­cially for peo­ple with func­tional di­ver­sity.

This con­sisted of a trip to Santa Bár­bara cas­tle in Ali­cante on Satur­day, where they were able to en­joy ex­tra­or­di­nary views and fun ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing a visit to the city’s Palmeral park.

ASMEGU thanked the town hall for giv­ing their chil­dren the chance to en­joy them­selves on such a mag­nif­i­cent ex­cur­sion.

Fu­ture trips are planned to Carta­gena on April 21, a farm school on May 21 and Santa Pola on June 23.

For more in­for­ma­tion visit the pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion (Par­tic­i­pación Ci­u­dadana) of­fice on the se­cond floor of the town hall.

Last Wed­nes­day, coach Joaquín Va­lentí spoke to moth­ers from ASMEGU at the con­fer­ence ‘car­ing for the carer’ at Tor­re­vieja hospi­tal.

They said it had been very en­rich­ing and a chance to share many ex­pe­ri­ences, and thanked the hospi­tal’s head of psy­chi­a­try, Dr. Jesús En­rique Mesones Peral, for hav­ing al­ways sup­ported the as­so­ci­a­tion.
