The annual church picnic, bringing together members of St George’s Barcelona with members of the Costa Brava and Andorra congregations, will be held in the spacious garden of Eleanor and John Copestake.
All those attending over the age of 12 must be fully vaccinated.
Children of all ages are most welcome, though parents are responsible for their children’s enjoyment and safety, especially in and around the swimming pool.
Water, soft drinks and red wine are provided, but bring your own picnic lunch and drinking vessels. We suggest you remain with others in your own bubble, wear masks and observe social distancing.
RVSP: Given the limitations due to COVID safety measures, you must let the Chaplain know in advance if you plan to come by emailing email@example.com or via WhatsApp on 630810991.

Via Autopista AP7: Exit 10, Hostalric. Leaving tollgate, take first right, before crossing bridge, BV5122, signed Tordera. Continue for 9 km. At entrance to village (roundabout with flowers) turn right up hill. The road bears right, signed Tanatori. Keep straight on, zigzag round children’s playground and on to large roundabout with standing stones. Take first exit to Tanatori. Can Manel is the last house on the right past the cemetery. N.B. Google tells you that no. 46 is earlier, at junction with Unamuno. It is NOT!
Via C-32 and N-II (northbound & southbound): At Km. 680.5, roundabout (with trees and shrubs), turn to Tordera. At next roundabout (with olive tree), take third exit, continue almost to the “castle”, turn right and continue without deviation for approx. 1 km to large roundabout with standing stones, take second exit to Tanatori. Can Manel is the last house on the right, past the cemetery. N.B. Google tells you that no. 46 is earlier, at junction with Unamuno. It is NOT!
Parking: Please note there is no parking space within the property. You should find safe space, either before Can Manel in the area in front of the cemetery, or just past Can Manel in the street parking at the Tanatori.
By train: Consult RENFE for times. RENFE Cercanias/Rodalies C1 direction Maçanet. Trains leave Plaça Catalunya station at 10:16am arriving in Tordera 1.5 hours later. From Sants they are 5 minutes earlier and Arc de Triomf 2 minutes later. A city bus, parked in the station forecourt, meets the train. Fare: 50 cents. Ask the driver for Can Manel (just before the Tanatori) and he will probably stop at the door. If not, it is a short walk back to the house.
