186 – Gathering of “We Love Atina” Group Members – 26th / 27th / 28th September 2014

Some while ago I started a new group on Facebook, an English speaking Group for people who share my passion for beautiful Atina and the Val di Comino and who have family roots firmly planted in this beautiful little town in Frosinone, Italy.  The group is called: “WE LOVE ATINA !!!” We now have reached a total of over 400 members.

Brigida Varley and I organised a “Get Together” of “We Love Atina” members in Bella Atina over the weekend of the 26th / 27th / 28th September 2014.

On the Friday afternoon Paul and I had the pleasure of meeting up with Mark and Jan Waldron and Mark’s cousin Peter in Ponte Melfa, in Atina Inferiore.

On the Friday evening we met up at the bar near the Arco and the new fountain for drinks, so we could begin to get to know each other, and what a lovely bunch of people they were.

After some discussion we decided that we would go back down to Ponte Melfa to the Villa Fortuna, a hotel and restaurant run by a friendly couple – Marcello and Christiana.  On Friday night they do a Fish and Chip Supper which went down a treat.
