Male Puppy Dumped. Please Help 

Gails Puppy

This male pup, around 3 months old, was dumped over our back fence very early this morning.  He is well fed not chipped but is settling down.
We cannot keep him as we are not in good health and already have 3 dogs and it would not be fair to this little chap.
If anyone can offer him a home we would be happy to pick up the cost of inoculations and neutering.
Call Gail on 951067723 or email gailmooney32@msn.com



Volunteers Needed

Can you give up one morning a week to work as a volunteer in

one of the TAIL shops. If you feel you would like to help this

charity  that looks after and rehomes the many dogs  in

need in this area please phone Jean on  629469445



Lost Bracelet

Last Sunday, 10th April, I lost a precious bracelet given to me last Christmas by my husband. It was lost whilst walking between Ladera Del Mar 1, Nerja and the Mauri Bar, Playazo Beach, Nerja. If anyone has found this bracelet, which is silver and white zircon gemstones, I would be so happy if you could contact me either by email or mobile phone.

Full of hope.

What’s on- Capistrano Film Nights

Many of you will know, that sadly, Vivian Margulies recently passed away and Marty has now returned to his home in Florida. We know that Marty plans to be returning to Capistrano in October and has said that he will still be available for advice and assistance in the presentation of Film Nights.

However, before leaving,  Marty entrusted his amazing collection of films to Capistrano in the hope that his legacy of Friday night film showings will continue. Thanks to Marty we have a database of all these films and thanks to Ken Finch we now have that database instantly viewable by title, genre, language, actor etc. available on CD.

I am delighted to say that a number of committed individuals have agreed to participate in the selection and showing of a number of films for the next season.

Ken has agreed to monitor and collate the choices with the aim of providing a wide variety of genres, languages and artists.

If anyone is keen or willing to participate in the selection & showing of a film or films- please contact me. Presenters from all nationalities are welcome.

All we need to start with is your availability on a Friday night during October – March and a contact e-mail – We’ll do the rest.

Wanted – Storage for a Caravan

I am looking for storage for a 3/4 birth caravan which I am bringing to Spain in May.

I have looked at the caravan site in Torrox and they don’t appear to do storage. Just pitches which I do not require.

I am looking for a place to store it for a few months near to Competa at a reasonable rental cost.

If I can’t find storage then I would need to sell it so let me know if you are interested.

The caravan is in very good condition with up to two double beds, kitchen and toilet.

It is a Sterling Excel Sprite. Length is 6 meters and width is 2.13 meters.
