Hi Kevin

Although you don't see many English about in Yecla i believe there are about 30 couples or more & more arriving. We live in Yecla & are still meeting new English people. 

There is a group of English & Spanish who meet up at various events to practice speaking each others language & organise trips & days out.

If you send me a p.m with your mobile no i will pass it on to someone who attends to contact you.

Hi there, 

Just thought I’d let you know that there are quite a few Brits living around the Las Virtudes area, on the way to Villena. I live just off the CV-81 road from Yecla to Villena, which is only 16 kilometres away from Yecla. If you go into Aldi’s in Yecla you will always find British people there, or if in Villena town itself, you’ll hear lots of English spoken in all the main supermarkets!

In Caudete, go to Andy’s Rastro (like a boot sale under cover!)  where the people who manage it, some of the sellers and certainly lots of customers are British. 

There is even the chance of having a good brew and English breakfast!   Only open at weekends from 10am to 2pm approx. 

You’ll get no end of advice from these guys. 

Best of luck,

Jan

P.s. I’m actually on the Costa Blanca forum, try there too.

Hi Jan,  I really appreciate you getting back to me,   I will certainly visit the place in Caudette next weekend.

I sign up for my place tomorrow morning it's between Caudette and Yecla just off the main road.  The boot fair sounds just the place to start..  I would like to meet people socially.....I have moved here with two dogs that keep me busy but I will have lots of time to enjoy the lifestyle that hopefully Spain offers.  .  Thanks Kevin,
