Currently this organisation is raising funds to build 12 apartments in the UK which will be only minutes away from the Royal Marsden Hospital, a specialist cancer treatment hospital.

This project is expected to cost a total of 3 million euros and is expected to accommodate some 400 Maltese and Gozitan patients for treatment in England each year.

      I encourage not only all people of Ta’ Sannat to attend for these events, but others from all over the island of Gozo, as well those Maltese folks who happen to be in Gozo for the weekend.
      As the above program shows, on the two days there is always something of interest for all; young and old; music, history ,culture, car, animals lovers and what not.
      So make it a point as the forthcoming weekend.

      Well said John and thanks to the Mayor Philip Vella who works relentlessly most of the time on his own, I don’t know how he keeps up with everything.
      For the benefit of the English speaking community, one must mention of course the actual re-enactment of her (then) Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth to the famous lace house of Ta’ Sannat (1951). This is going to involve 10 real old military motor cyclists and 4 military jeeps plus the involvement of the local people. Come and have a beer or two at one of the bars of as is known Piazzetta tax-xalina while watching the parade
