Benidorm rewards the work of three associations born in the years of the Transition

The City Council presents the corporate medal to the Horizontes Scout Group, local commerce and housewives as an example of social cohesion

Benidorm celebrated yesterday the 40th anniversary of the Spanish Constitution with an institutional act held in the Plaza de la Senyoria and in which three associations born during the years of the Transition were rewarded and which are still working and with full activity.

The Association of Housewives, Consumers and Users, founded in 1976; the Independent Association of Merchants (Aico), dating from 1977; and the Horizontes Scout Group, created in 1978 and that today continues to train children and young people in values ​​such as solidarity, companionship and love and respect for nature.

After the raising of flags by representatives of all political groups except the mayor of Compromís, Josep Bigorra, who did not attend the ceremony, Mayor Toni Perez handed over the corporate medals of the city to Jaime Pérez, coordinator of the Group Scout Horizons of Benidorm; Raúl Parra, president of Aico and Vicenta Pérez, president of the Housewives.

The mayor stressed the role played by all these groups as “a fundamental element for the cohesion and the structuring of society, also to channel citizen participation” and stressed that with this Corporate Medal “recognizes the work and the trajectory of three entities born in the first years of the democratic transition, which are still active in the city where they were born”.

Finally, he stressed that “his work and his proposals have been an example and an incentive to promote the association in Benidorm. There is a common denominator in all of them: build the best Benidorm ».

Full constitutional validity
In his institutional speech, the first mayor of Benidorm also made a broad reference to the meaning of the Constitution approved in 1978, a “fundamental symbol of the will of consensus of the people”.

The popular defended the full validity of the Magna Carta and the State of the autonomies as it is conceived: “No political process can end up being an alibi or a unilateral cut-off to violate the foundations of our democracy. Let no one expect us to look the other way ».
