At VAPF Group, we understand the importance of leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle, which is why we think it’s important to encourage sporting activities at any age, especially for children. Sport is not only a key factor for good health, it also helps with socialising and understanding values such as respect and perseverance.
At VAPF Group, to reinforce our support for sport, we’ve sponsored the sports equipment of the young gymnasts at the Sports Schools of Poble Nou de Benitatxell. The colours of the uniform are blue and yellow, which have a long local tradition and also those of the local football team in Benitatxell.
The official sportswear was handed over to the 153 boys and girls from the different clubs by local sports councillor Manolo Segarra, who had previously expressed his satisfaction with the uniform: “We hope the children feel motivated and wear it with pride at local competitions.”
Of these 153 members of the Sports Schools, many are enrolled in more than one sport. The activities they take part in are football, tennis, padel, rhythmic gymnastics, karate, swimming, and golf.
At VAPF Group, we believe that it is important to support and participate in the local community, and play a part in developing activities in El Poble Nou de Benitatxell. That’s why we believe that sponsoring this uniform is a show of our support for local sports.
Last Friday, on the 27th of April, we celebrated our first Day of the Tree with students from the international Lady Elizabeth School by carrying out a reforestation Project which saw the students plant 100 pine trees. The school children repopulated a green area near to Lirios Design in the Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort, which is considered an area of high environmental value.
Day of the Tree is a good opportunity to take part in educational activities so that both adults and children learn the importance of looking after the environment and the resources given to us by nature. With this initiative, VAPF Group has worked together with the pupils at the Lady Elizabeth School with the aim of creating a greener future for the town of Benitatxell.
Year 3 students from The Lady Elizabeth School were chosen to take part in this initiative, as it fit in perfectly with the topic they are working on at school: “saving the world”. Students, parents, teachers, members of VAPF Group, and the mayor of Benitatxell spent an exciting morning that helped the pupils to learn and also to enjoy the opportunity to help the environment and do their bit towards “saving the world”.
The mayor of Benitatxell, Josep Femenia, attended this pleasant outdoor event and gave a short speech to inspire the children: “When I was younger, someone very wise once told me that there were 3 important things in life: having a child, planting a tree, and writing a book; and today you are doing one of these things: sowing new life”.

VAPF Group sponsored the event and provided two buses to pick the students up from their school and take them to where the trees would be planted, as well as giving them the gardening materials they needed. VAPF Group made the most of the occasion and offered each child a bag, a cap, and a surprise pack of seeds to plant and look after at home, to encourage their interest in nature from a young age.
Cumbre del Sol, where both the Lady Elizabeth School and the different residential areas built by VAPF Group are situated, is a unique natural enclave surrounded by green areas and the Mediterranean Sea. The area is home to protected green areas such as Granadella Natural Park, impressive cliffs and caves, and stunning beaches and coves, which are one of the main attractions in Cumbre del Sol, and a priority for VAPF Group. At VAPF Group one of our goals is to contribute to helping the environment by promoting different initiatives that protect the planet and reduce environmental problems.
The students at The Lady Elizabeth School know how important it is to look after nature around them, and it is not the first time that they have participated in activities related to the environment. Trips to the Montgó gardens, creating a garden by planting trees in the primary playground, and school trips to viewpoints and nearby locations are just some of the activities that help to educate the students.

VAPF Group is currently working on the construction of a new building for secondary pupils at The Lady Elizabeth School in Cumbre del Sol, so that pupils have the opportunity to broaden their studies. The work is progressing successfully, and the new classrooms will be equipped with the latest technology including four laboratories, three IT rooms, a kitchen for food science, and a space for art, dance, and theatre. The secondary pupils will be moving into the new building in September.
The pupils at The Lady Elizabeth School will be able to go back and visit the trees they have planted in the future, to see the progress they have made and appreciate their contribution to the environment.

Last Thursday, 14 December took place the awards ceremony of the first Christmas Decorations Contest of the Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol: a fun, family oriented and very emotional event that allowed us to spend a few hours with local residents and toast together for Happy Holidays.
From Grupo VAPF we want to thank all the neighbors who participated in the contest; all of them did a great job, which made the task of the jury very difficult.
Shortly we will bring you a photo gallery with the decorations of the participating houses, as well as the awards ceremony.
Today we attach to this post the photo of the winners in the category of “Outdoor Decoration-Garden and lighting.”
Next year we will repeat the contest as this year we had a very good experience and it was a pleasure to start the Christmas celebrations in such a good company.
Congratulations to all the participants!!!
