Nerja Cudeca Support Group – Today – Thursday

Reminder that the Nerja Cudeca Support Group meeting is on Thursday 21st January at 11.30

in the Caritas Room at the rear of El Salvador Church on the Balcon.  A warm welcome to anyone who feels that a chat and advice on health matters might be of assistance to them,  a member of their family or a friend.



Nerja Town Hall Meeting : The Padron

Nerja Town Hall is very concerned with the Padron, population list, as 1,600 foreigners are going to be taken off the Nerja Padron as they haven’t renewed their Padron, which has to be done every 2 years. This implies that if we go under the figure of 20,000 inhabitants registered on the Padron, we will lose services and could have a reduction in police, doctors, firemen, teachers apart from losing a very important amount of money that the central and regional governments give to the town halls according to the population figure of the Padron, which at the moment, in Nerja is of 22,200 persons.

We would like to invite all the press, magazines and radios of the nearby areas to a meeting with the Nerja Town Hall Foreigners Department. It would be on Wednesday, 3rd February at 10:30 am at the Nerja Town Hall, at the Salon de Actos on the second floor. The aim is so you can express our concern in your media and make foreigners know that they have to renew their inscription on the Padron every 2 years. They just have to check with the Town Hall that they are on the Padron.

Also to welcome all newcomers to Nerja who spend several months here to register on the Padron for the first time.

The meeting will last approx. one hour. Please confirm your attendance.

Kind regards

Jacky – Nerja Foreigners Department
