“It seems incredible that another year has almost passed and Christmas is once again upon us. It’s been an extremely busy year and as ever December is a hectic month for us. As always our members are our number one priority and we continually work hard to look after your interests. The LBRA was established as an association to work for and support its members, and to help and assist them on a daily basis whatever their needs. As an association we are a collective of like minded people who can share knowledge and information and whose aim is to work together as a united group for the benefit of Lanzarote and its future.

As the year draws to an end I like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members for being part of the association and for your continued support. I am pleased to report that with your support the LBRA, as well as being the only official association for Europeans on the island, remains one of the largest. It has been a good year and one with more highs than lows. We are extremely proud to have been awarded a contract from the Cabildo, working on the promotion of Lanzarote. We also secured a contract with Teguise Ayuntamiento, and now work with them on a weekly basis providing translations and assistance for non Spanish speakers and helping in other general areas. We are at present in talks with other Ayuntamiento’s and associations and hope to be able to bring you news of further contracts in 2016.
I should also like to thank my team at the association, particularly Silvia and Rita, and to the member representatives for the work and support they give. My family play an important part in supporting me and allowing me time away from my own businesses to concentrate on association matters, and for that I am grateful and thankful. When I formed the association in 2008 after many years of planning and work, it was my wish to be able to help others and I feel that this has now been successfully achieved. The association as you will be aware is now a respected “member” of the community and is acknowledged by all the authorities and I hope that makes you feel as proud as it does me to be part of our organisation.
Our members are the most important part of the organisation, and our commitment is to work hard on your behalf and take care of your interests. As always our overall objective is to continually increase tourism, improve the facilities, standards and services that the island has to offer, and to support and create unity in the community. We have the knowledge, capabilities, enthusiasm and dedication to work on your behalf and with your support we will continue to do so. Best wishes Daniel Trigg (President Lanzarote Business and Residents Association)”
Once again from everyone involved in the running of the LBRA, we would like to say a big thank you to all of our members and to anyone who has supported us during the year. This year has been excellent for the organisation in many ways, and we hope to continue with our success in 2016. We are sure that with all the excellent support we receive from our members, the public and the Cabildo of Lanzarote, next year the Lanzarote Business and Residents Association can achieve even more!
