Notario: Never thought I would say this. I have found a really good gestor. His English is good. He understands that the rules here are different to every other country. Most importantly he is aware of the fact that the average customer does not know all the questions. Never mind what the answers are. After owning two houses, many cars and having dealt with all of that he finalized something that had dragged on for many years. Then he told me where to take the work and what the options were.
Juan Luis Avila. Next to the Repsol Station on Torrox Costa. On the ocean side of the road, where there are two gas stations opposite each other. 95 125 4014 Fast, efficient, helpful and understanding.

Pets

Home needed for Sheba: Can anyone provide a loving home for my beautiful ‘house cat’ Sheba? She is a Siamese mix. She is vaccinated, micro-chipped and has her own passport. She has many Siamese traits like sleeping, looking out of windows, ‘talking’ and being played with. I am returning to the UK to care for my elderly parents. However there is a ‘no pets’ policy in the flat where I will be staying, hence this appeal. If you can help I would be very grateful.

La Mula: Hello all the readers of Digamextra !, My name is Silvia, yesterday my husband and I have gone to “tapear” to LA MULA, a rural bar that is on the road that goes up to Torrox Pueblo, passing the LIDL supermarket.
We were amazed by the cleanliness, and the excellent frying of fish and seafood, but the best came at the end, when we had to pay. Very good quality and price! It is ideal to spend a nice and rich moment in middle of the field. Silvia, El Morche

Wild boar keeps local police and hunters occupied for two hours in town-centre chase: The animals are a common sight around the Torrox river but they rarely enter populated areas. Local police, hunters and other officers spent almost two hours on Wednesday morning trying to capture a young wild boar in Torrox town centre. The animal, which according to sources was around three years old, was first spotted by residents in the El Pontil and La Cebadilla areas of the old town. Once caught, it was released in an area of countryside outside the town centre. According to sources, wild boar are a common sight around the Torrox river but they rarely enter populated areas.

Vetiver in conjunction with Sayalonga Sol and the Town Hall in Sayalonga: A Christmas gift collection for the local needy children.
Hello to all of our friends and clients, we are doing this a little earlier than usual as every year we have a larger group of wonderful and caring people. Every year in Sayalonga we work with Bogdan Blanchut of Sayalonga Sol. Bogdan and his staff arrange everything. Everyone donates whatever they can in the form of clothing or toys for children whose parents are in need, along with orphans, and foster children. This is done in conjunction with the Red Cross in Velez Malaga. Bogdan has been doing this for 8 years now. We have had great response from our clients and neighbors of many different nationalities.
We will all meet at the Town Hall on December 19th and have holiday treats with the Alcalde and friends and then transport all the gifts to the Red Cross in Velez Malaga. Contact us as we do not know the time yet and we will let you know. Normally it is 12:00.
This year is no different accept that we, Anna and Dave from Vetiver Spain, are going to provide 10 Vetiver Plants free to anyone who contributes anything for the children. There is no requirement but to participate with us to help people in need. It is a really nice thing that this village does every year and in our opinion is the real meaning of Christmas.
If you would like to participate even in a small way I can send to you the information on what to donate. Mostly clothing, wrapped and labeled for girl or boy and designate the age of the recipient. No cash please!
We hope to see you all at the Town Hall on December 19th and after at the Restaurante Jocavi in the town square for complimentary cocktails provided by the organizers. We then arrange to have everything delivered to the Red Cross in Velez Malaga for the delivery of the items for the children. Last year it took 4 trucks to bring all the gifts to the Red Cross in Velez Malaga and we hope to increase that this year. Any gifts can either be left at the Sayalonga Town Hall or at Bogdan’s office of Sayalonga Sol in the center of the village.
I take all of the photos and donate them to the Town Hall and then to numerous newspapers in many countries.
We hope to see you all soon.
Sincerely, Dave and Anna  www.vetiverspain.com
