cartoon-dog120524Thanks from Action for Animals

Last month, Action for Animals together with Juan Molino of Naturvets, visited Candido Lara school in Cómpeta to give a presentation about the importance of caring for animals. Since the presentation, the children have been busy fundraising. They’ve held a second hand market, rattled their collection tins during a “mini march” around the village and sold their paintings during Cómpeta’s recent Art Walk. They’ve raised an incredible €207.46 in total!
A huge thank you to the teachers at Candido Lara, the organisers of the Art Walk and most of all a massive thank you to the pupils of Candido Lara. Well done, everyone!


Obelisk ?

Near the seaward end of El Faro, Torrox Costa,  where the Paseo  meets the road there is an obelisk with the word Greenwich carved into it.   Does anyone out there know the significance of it?  No, it’s not on the Greenwich Meridian.  Replies to Digame for general information.


Services Needed-Steam Cleaner Hire

Does anyone know if it is possible to hire a Steam Cleaner,

not a hand held one, an upright would be more appropriate.

I have several rugs and soft furnishing I want to clean.

Thank you, I live in Venta Baja.

Please reply to smcl119 @ hotmail.co.uk

Recommendation-Jewellery Repairs

I would like to recommend a lovely young lady who sells and repairs jewellery at the El Trapiche market every Tuesday, (and probably elsewhere!). Over the past two years I have asked her to repair several pieces for me, from costume to white gold jewellery, and I have always found her work excellent and very reasonably priced.  She has some lovely pieces for sale too.  Ruth



Recommendation Needed –Curtain Aleration

Could anybody recommend somebody to do a professional job of shortening two pairs of new curtains recently bought from Leroy Merlin?

They were expensive and are lined so I feel a professional job is required. I have seen places offering sewing repairs but really want to go somewhere that’s recommended.
Thanks for any advice.
Telephone me :- Jill Barker 952508821 or mobile 617283129. If you use the mobile please do not leave a message as I don’t know how to retrieve them!



Recommendation- Building services

We would like to recommend Simon, he has reformed our town house to an excellent standard and he cares about what he and his work team does. He is  English with fluent  Spanish. He has  workmen for the jobs you want done, big or small,  reforming, toldos, electrical, painting etc. the lot. He even came with us to the local town hall to make sure we changed our padron with ease.  His phone number is 620678240  Thank you Simon.      T&S W.


Recommendation  – Translation Services   

I have also used the services of Kaye for a hospital visit recently, she is very professional, helpful and with her fluent Spanish it was very reassuring to have her there. Would gladly recommend her in the future

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. 

New 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.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
