Padron – Correction

The information posted Tuesday is not correct.

Apart from exceptional circumstances, there is no longer any requirement

for EU citizens to renew their Padron every 5 years.

The relevant law is here.

http://noticias.juridicas.com/base_datos/Admin/rd2612-1996.html

Also, only “habitual” residents are required, by law, to sign on the Padron –

non residents are not allowed to, whatever the local Town Hall may say.

The relevant law is here – Article 15.

http://noticias.juridicas.com/base_datos/Admin/l7-1985.t2.html#a13

Many Town Halls flout these laws for their own benefit (the more people registered, the more subsidy they get from central government).

I have been on the Padron in my town for 17 years and have never been asked to renew my entry, even when I request an up to date copy of my registration.

What’s On – Coraxalia Choir

For people who may be interested to hear about our latest performance, and may wish to join us
A wonderful experience
On 11th March Coraxalia Choir took part in ‘Cantemos’, the first International Choir Festival in Granada at the Manuel de Falla Concert Hall.  They performed Mozart’s Requiem which was accompanied by the Orchestra of the province of Granada.
On Coraxalia’s individual performance a professional music  critic reported:
“It was a “Susan Boyle “moment for the audience when they saw a somewhat ‘mature’ choir performing.  They were not expecting to hear such a fabulous sound and it made the audience sit up and take notice! “The feeling of teamwork shone in the performance of Coraxalia.” “Theirs was a  very professional, controlled and musical interpretation, which was consistent throughout their program.” “The general sound of the choir was very rich, without individual voices standing out or interrupting the flow of music, with a balanced use of the rubato.” “They showed that they really enjoyed performing together.” “They had the most enjoyable musical program of the night.” “Excellent tuning and good interpretive taste”. “As for the Requiem, the overall sound was phenomenal.” “I could have been listening to any professional choir.”
Coraxalia Choir continues to receive invitations to Choir Festivals for the upcoming season 2017-18, and invites new members to join them.  Contact eucorax @ hotmail.es for more information.

Information about the Padron

Have you wondered about the Padron? Are you concerned that if you register, you will let yourself in for all kinds of official hassle?
Brits in Spain have published this interesting and informative article recently…

Are you on the Padrón? Do you need to confirm your registration?

The Spanish Office of National Statistics (INE) collects Padrón data annually, and the closing date for information to be submitted this year is 31 March. This data is very important not just for town halls but for everyone living in Spain, as it is used for allocating local budgets, among other administrative processes. You should register with the town hall where you live.

According to the Spanish authorities:

If you are resident in Spain, your registration on the Padrón needs to be confirmed every five years. If you are not resident (e.g. living here temporarily), but are registered on the Padrón, your Padrón registration needs to be confirmed every two years.

If your Padrón registration is due for confirmation, you can do this by signing a declaration form at your town hall. In some cases, your town hall may contact you in person (either an official from the town hall or the local police) or send you a letter asking you to confirm your registration.

If you change your address or personal details with your local town hall, your Padrón registration will be automatically confirmed.

If you don’t confirm your registration every two or five years (depending upon your residency status), then your town hall will start the process to remove you from the Padrón register. However, the town hall will attempt to inform you of this process, before you are removed.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact your local town hall.

Information Taken from a sister Blog. Many thanks.

Service Needed Overpaid Pension Reclaim

We moved to Spain June 2015 {Velez Malaga area} and have recently discovered Digame/DigamExtra. All was fine until last June when we received a letter from a Personal Pension provider telling me I had been overpaid this pension and was never entitled to it. They are now asking for reclamation of the amount paid which we would severely struggle to pay. My wife and I are both 67 and live on UK pensions as income. As you can imagine I am looking for assistance from  a person with experience in this field living in the expat community who can help with my rights regarding this and who would be rewarded for their kind efforts. Obviously confidentiality is of paramount importance to us and initial contact would be by telephone only { 666952916 }.

There are more details to this obviously Jane but flesh will be put on the bones if I can meet the right person. Should you require a headline then anything similar to ” Overpaid Pension Reclaim ” would be fine. Thank you in advance for any help you can muster!

Kind regards

Richard

Services Needed Satellite Installer

Hello Digamites.

I have recently returned to Spain and am wondering if it is

still possible to pick up TV on a 1.4m dish here?

I did notice some information on “a ban on foreign TV services”

so any info on what that’s about would be appreciated.

If it is possible can anyone recommend a reliable professional installer,

with the emphasis on professional, as I don’t want to be billed by

someone messing about with a DIY signal meter.

Thanks in advance. Email sengmand @ hotmail.com

(Please answer directly by email, DigameXtra cannot post info regarding this info request.)

Recommendations – Paypal Warning
When it comes to using your debit card on PayPal, whether you are entitled to chargeback protection depends on how you make the purchase.

If you load  money using the card into your PayPal account, you won’t be covered by Chargeback as it is not considered a card transaction.

But if there’s no money loaded in your PayPal account and you use your card directly to make a payment through PayPal, your purchase should apply for Chargeback cover.

To avoid any grey area, you should empty your PayPal account before making a purchase to make it clear how the payment was made.

Recommendation – Plumber

We recently used the services of Oscar Pinazo Linan, the plumber from Torrox to remove an old shower tray and install a new  tray and also a dishwasher.

We would highly recommend Oscar, he speaks very good English, is very punctual and communicates through What’s app.

His workmanship is excellent and his pricing is fair.

We are very pleased with his work.

Recommendation – Airport Parking

Just a note to say I used the new dropping off facilities at the airport on Thursday and it was so easy. You drive into car park a girl on the barrier gets a ticket for you.

Go and park up drop your passengers off, go to Salida put ticket in and drive out, no problem.

In fact there were so many parking spots it was hard to decide where to park, Mind you it was 08.20 in the morning.
Kind regards,

I.M.E.

Services Offered – Dorn Method – Relaxation – Coaching

Feel Good Axarquía is all about supporting clients to live better, fuller lives.

Are you looking for an alternative to chiropractic or physiotherapy?
Bring vertebras and joints back into their ideal positions with the DORN method. It is a soft and very effective method to treat diseases and symptoms related to the spine and/or the joints.

Would you like to have some time for yourself?
Listen to the soothing sound of the Tibetan singing bowls or learn about a new relaxation technique like the Autogenic Training (AT) or the Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR).

Both AT and PMR can be learned in individual appointments, but practicing it in a group brings more exchange.

If you are already a group of people and you would like to organise a private course, I will be more than happy to provide more information on a possible schedule.

Or is there something on your mind you would like to talk about in a trustful environment to get it off your chest?

What is very special about the short-term and solution-oriented coaching is that rather than focusing on your problems and their cause, you focus on resources and positive experiences.

Get in touch for a first 15 minutes meeting to get to know me.

This first meeting will be non-binding and free of cost for you.

Feel Good Axarquía is based in Sayalonga.

A fully equipped treatment room is waiting for you, but also home visits are possible. Get in touch with me to learn about details.

I look forward to getting to know you  –  Feel Good!

Recommendation – Kennels

We recently lodged our dog for eight days at Weston kennels and cattery on the Torrox to Cómpeta road.  Terry and his daughter Lucy were very friendly and efficient and our dog was very well looked after for a reasonable price.

We would recommend them and have already booked our dog in for

another longer stay.  Jubith B.

Burglaries in Lomilla Area of Competa

Recently, some rascals broke into our as well as our neighbour’s house, when we were away. They left a mess – and a large number of keys (photo), which we handed over to the helpful officers from the Torrox Guardia Civil, who came fairly quickly at the request of the Policia Local of Cómpeta, who were first on the scene.     The keys are now with the GC in Cómpeta – if anyone missing them. They stole some strange items: old electrical equipment, old bags and rucksacks (one National Geographic), the latter probably to carry away the stuff. If you came across a suspicious pile dumped somewhere, then perhaps there is something, which I would like to get back, so please contact me in that case: birgit.fastrup @ gmail.com

Recommendation – Opticians

Martin Opticas Algarrobo

I have used Martin Opticas for a number of years and they have always given very good service.

The eye test they give is also accurate as regards the type and strength of your lens.

The glasses have always been of good quality, and they never charge if you need them cleaned or adjusted at a later date.

Like all the other “High Street” opticians, such as Martins and Specsavers, the eye test is only basic, which is fine for choosing lens, however I would suggest occasionaly having a full eye test which can often detect other underlying problems with your eyes and general health.

For this type of test I would recommend Clinica Hidalgo in Velez Malaga, they will give your eyes a thorough check over and provide you with a lens prescription, which you can then take to Martins to supply glasses. It costs around 50 euros for the eye examination at Hidalgo.

Their contact details can be found on their website  www.clinicahidalgo.es

 

 

Recommendation – Gray Heating and Plumbing

I’ve just had my ageing gas boiler replaced very efficiently by Nick Gray Heating and Plumbing. He diagnosed the problem, sourced and purchased a new boiler and fitted it complete with an anti-calc filter. He cleared away the old boiler and thoroughly tested the new one. He has 19 years experience in the UK. I recommend him.He can contacted on:

Recommendation – For Qualified Osteopath

Just wanted to share with you a little Gem we found whilst taking a walk down by Peñoncillo Beach (Torrox-Costa) with my husband – her name is Bianca (Clínica Casa Blanca).

It was my husband who picked up a leaflet as I’d been suffering with neck and lower back pain. I’d been seeing an Osteopath for 2 years before moving out here and hadn’t been able to get past a month before needing more treatment – so worth a try I thought!

After having 3 sessions with Bianca I felt as though a dark cloud had been lifted from my head, I felt lighter, taller and actually had a spring in my step for the first time in years.

My husband has also had treatment with Bianca for his shoulders, hips and knees – he also had 3 sessions. I have now gone for almost a year between treatments and my husband hasn’t had to return at all.

So a Big Thank You to our Little Gem Bianca for your Healing Hands and making our lives pain free.

Bianca can be found at Clinica Casa Blanca and is a qualified  Osteopath and super qualified for a range of treatments.

Looking For Swathe of Poppies in the Axarquia

This may seem an odd request, but a special family occasion is coming up and it would make for some particularly lovely photos if the background was a swathe of poppies (ideally), or possibly an expanse of purple flowers or even something like oil-seed rape. It’s the expanse of bright colour that matters.

The photos can be taken any time soon, in advance of the event at the end of April.  If you see an area like this near you and can take a quick shot and send it to me (to save us chasing all over the Axarquia) we would all be extremely grateful!

After some disappointing (and expensive) experiences with local opticians we have been going to Specsavers, Fuengirola for the last three lots of glasses and have been very pleased with the service, the eye test and most of all the price.

Thank You – From Cat and Me!

First I would like to thank Digamextra for their amazing professional contribution allowing the whole of the expat society to find answers, solve problems, and help people generally with all sorts of questions and difficulties.

Thank you so much.
My second thank you is to the very kind gentleman who answered my urgent plea for a cat trap to catch a feral cat,
which looks very much to be pregnant, to take to the vet, which will hopefully lead for her, to a much calmer future life.
Thank you all once again.
Don.

Zhineng Qigong is a life science officially recognized as one of the most powerful and effective methods of healing and maintaining health. This natural system is easy to learn and it is simple, safe and suitable for people of all ages. Its soft movements , its visualizations and internal affirmations promote and enhance its results.

Open your mind and your heart, be pure and have faith and trust in your practicing, be constant, persevere and unfailingly. The Universe always responds naturally and effectively with original Qi. Remember: Whatever you send out to the Universe, the Universe responds back in the same manner.

– Empowers intuition and expands conciousness

Simple and easy as it is, Zhineng Qigong uses the universal energy (Qi) as an information channel capable of modifying and affecting any part of the body during and after practicing.

Thus the meaning of Zhineng Qigong is to enhance and promote our Qi-field as a constant source of life and energy through daily practicing.

During this healing retreat you will discover and enhance your innate abilities for self-healing by one of the greatest contemporary masters of Zhineng Qigong.

His kindness, cordiality and closeness, his inner wisdom and impressive presence will without a doubt make it possible for us all to generate a powerful and generous Qi-field from which we shall all benefit from the very beginning.

With calm and joy, we enter into our Qigong-state, regaining our Vital Energy in a natural and leisurely way, feeling the emergence of our true selves stronger than ever. We will revitalize and regenerate, nourishing ourselves from the inexhaustible source of Universal Energy (Qi), along the entire process and practicing.

Chinese Master Liu Jianshe spreads his enthusiasm through his long experience as a teacher and healer. He has dedicated his life to Qigong for more than 25 years due to which we can now enjoy and benefit from his knowledge and in depth experience. It is all at our disposal through his service. With simplicity and clarity, he will show for us the path to recovery and strengthening og physical, mental and spiritual health.

In this workshop/retreat of 5 days, our lives can without a doubt be transformed. Let us just leave the mind open, keep the heart pure and enjoy. There is a wise saying: Be open to everything and attached to nothing!
