Recommendation – TV Service                                                                               For Valerie who asked about Services Needed  TV Options –                                 I am very happy with BTVC from Estepona.

I subscribe to their Basic Silver Package & get 143 Channels which of course includes all the BBC & ITV Channels & Many Sky Channels!  Some are now in High Definition.                                                                                                                                        You get Catchup going back 14 days.                                                                                   In the Video Club you have over 1,000 movies/films. E.g. Even the latest James Bond which was only released in December.

If you go to their website you can find all the channels available! www.besttvchoice.net

What’s on – NADFAS Fuengirola 

We have for many years been supporters of NADFAS (the National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies). Indeed, I am currently the Treasurer of the Fuengirola Branch, Costa del Sol Decorative & Fine Arts Society (Costa del Sol Dfas) and, in that capacity, would like to invite you to attend the February lecture, which is being sponsored by Blevins Franks.

The lecture is entitled:

Years at universities and art organisations in America and on cruise boats. She was an official guide at the British Museum and has published articles on samplers. Her lectures range from the role of the royal mistress in history to more scholarly lectures such as on Frederick the Great of Prussia.

Three Great Families and their Gardens:

the Astors, the Rothschilds and the Sackville-Wests

“Three Great Families and their Gardens” is the story of three very different, but hugely successful, families: the Sackville-Wests, the Astors and the Rothschilds. The Sackville-Wests have been part of the establishment since Tudor times and the other two families are wealthy immigrants who came to England from America and Germany in the 19th century. The talk traces the history of the families, discusses their considerable contribution to life in England and celebrates the splendid gardens they created and that continue to give us tremendous pleasure to this day.

The lecturer, Caroline Rayman, has lectured for many y

The lecture is on the 8th February 2016 at the Salon Varieties in Fuengirola, starting at 4.30pm.

Please join us for a glass of wine after the lecture in the Martini Bar on the Square.

The fee to attend the lecture would normally be 10€. However, as a valued client of Blevins Franks, we would like to invite you along as our guest.

You may decide that you would like to attend other lectures. If so, for a fee of 45€, you can become a member of Costa del Sol DFAS for the whole season. The society in Fuengirola was founded in 1988 and is very well attended.

The lectures are held at 4:30pm on the second Monday of the month. They are all in English and delivered by accredited lecturers, all experts in their chosen subjects and usually flown over from the UK specifically to speak to NADFAS. In addition to the lectures, the society has a lively social events programme and arranges cultural travel both in Spain and abroad. If you would like to learn more about the society and the lecture, please visit the website www.costadelsoldfas.com.

If you would like to attend the Blevins Franks Sponsored Lecture please reply to us by e-mail

I will be at the theatre on the 8th along with the rest of our team, and we look forward to welcoming you to the lecture.

Kind Regards

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”, days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true. Jane
