BBC Look North seeks participants….

I hope that Digame can help a former colleague of mine.

BBC Look North is looking for residents in the Nerja/Torrox/Frigiliana area who are from the North East of England or Cumbria, and are either intending to vote to leave the EU in any forthcoming referendum, or have no interest in taking part in the ballot.

You would also need to be available on the morning of Thursday 25th of February to participate.  Anyone interested should contact

Kevinwilliams6(at)me (dot)com in the first instance.

Many thanks



Justice or Not ?

In April 2015 I was pulled up by the police for a motoring offence, “fair cop governor” as I was guilty of the offence.                                                                                   I was fined on the spot, 200 euros reduced by 50% if paid within 20 days.                 This I paid within the deadline.                                                                                             My life went on.                                                                                                                                   In September 2015 I received a fine for the same offence this time for 500 euros less the 100 I had paid.                                                                                                                I appealed to the traffic authorities and received a reply in January 2016 to the effect that the policeman who gave me the fine way back in April 2015 had made a mistake and the fine should have been 500 euros, not the 200 euros I was originally fined.                                                                                                                                                     Is this Justice?  Should I have to pay for a policeman’s incompetence?  AC.

Advice please    Broken Apple IPad Screen
Please can kind people in DigameLand tell me , and others who might need to know, what can be done with an iPad or phone  when the glass is shattered in one corner but the machine still works .

( I have stuck sellotape over it to keep everything in place )

Can they be repaired ? Do you have to go back to Apple in Marbella ?

Make an appointment ? Is there a local company that can change the glass ?
Thank you for any help or advice that you can give me and others who drop their machines on these tiled floors …

I m sure I can’t be the only clumsy person here

A word of warning… Archez Parking

Today I was fined for parking by the recycling bins in Archez by a

motorcycle policeman while I did the recycling.

I was on the wrong side of the road facing the wrong way as there

were several cars parked there also, maybe that was it.

The policeman was very polite.

Anyway just be careful when parking there.

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