Lost- Missing


This beauty adopted us years ago in Torrox Campo. He is now missing since a week ago. He is a very timid and silent boy, who does not like to ride a car.

Anyone who can give us information about his whereabouts can count on a reward. Just contact Riverman on 692 354 888 or erland @ Archipelago.se



Opinion – Timing of announcements

It’s a shame that a lot of items in Digamextra are appearing too late to be of any use.  Perhaps Jane could let people know the deadline for publishing, and organizers could send in details of events in time for people to plan to attend.

Reading in the morning that an event is on the same day is a bit too late for making plans.    Carol C.



Waitress Needed

Waitresses needed for our Nerja restaurants, experience essential. Call Alison on 952 521 783 or 693 564 411



Services Needed –Help With Skype

A bargain bucket (or maybe shelf) with a selection of items for only 1€ and a selection of sale jewellery. We’ll also be extending the end of season clothes sale and offering 10% off all Spring & Summer fashions, once again for this weekend only.  So it’s a great chance to buy yourself a new outfit for this lovely Spring weather.

We have a special offer on the remaining large tubs of Quality Street, Roses and Heroes at only 6€ and packs of 4 spiced teacakes for just 1.85€

It wouldn’t be a celebration without a drink so we’ll be serving a refreshing punch whilst you browse, and there is plenty to see we’re so choc-a-bloc with fabulous giftware, furniture and furnishings, that we are bursting onto the street. Pete Cómpeta’s favourite wood turner will be on site, as part of the Cómpeta Artwalk, with his array of beautiful crafts.

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”

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 –

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