Water Restrictions in Competa

  1. JOSE LUIS TORRES GUTIERREZ, Mayor of Cómpeta, under the authority stated in the law 7/1985, the 2ndof April, letter e9, 1 of article 21, regulating the bases of local government,

Dictates the following:

The town hall of Cómpeta informs everyone that because of the recent lack of water, due to insufficient rain, the Town Hall bans-

-Watering of land, gardens, trees, streets, terraces,…

-Use of water for swimming pools, fountains,…

-Washing of vehicles and other objects.

This means there is only one way water can be used –  for human consumption.

Thank you everyone for your help and understanding,

  1. José Luis Torres Gutierrez (Alcalde de Cómpeta)



Residency ?

My partner and I have always thought we were residents by default – we’ve lived here permanently for eleven years now and have entered tax returns etc each and every year. However we now want to import a UK plated car and obtain a Spanish driving licence and have been advised we need the full residency certificate to do so. Friends have advised we need to complete the ex18 form and we have a link to what other items we need. So I am really just seeking any tips or experiences that people have had who have done the same. Many thanks. Email  littlenige at mail dot com    .and Digamextra please


My experience of Scalewatcher.

As my boiler was repeatedly cal-ing up I bought a Scalewatcher, which was very expensive. After a number of weeks the boiler caled up again so I got a filter system installed and also contacted Salewatcher stating that the unit was not working. They exchanged the unit saying the original was faulty. From then I had both systems running and had no cal in the boiler. I have changed the filters at regular intervals. 2 years ago the Scalewatcher lights went out after about 5 years use and I removed it and sincet then there has been no cal in the boiler. So it would seem that the Scalewatcher had no effect at all as the filter system removed the cal.   Robert

Dog Academy

Having problems with your dog ??

All dogs, large or small, good or badly behaved welcome.
Also, if you are experiencing particular difficulties with your dog,
we can offer One to One Private sessions, to help owners deal with
more specific problems such as :
Aggression – towards other dogs, people & other animals.
Possessiveness – over food, toys & bed etc.
Greeting – barking or jumping up at you, visitors or people you meet on the street.
Excessive barking – this could be due to territorial, guarding behaviour, boredom, frustration or separation anxiety, or a combination of any of these.
Stress / Insecurity – following you or another family member constantly, destructive behaviour when left, barking or howling when left, constant licking or chewing of their own feet or legs, whining, shaking or hiding.
Toileting in the house (excluding young puppies) – scent-marking, urinating or defecating in the house. These are normally signs of stress, anxiety or dominance.
Fear – examples include: walking near traffic, loud noises (thunder / fireworks etc.), strangers, travelling in cars.
Obsessions – examples include: tail chasing, balls or toys, stones or sticks, vacuum cleaners,  brooms, mops, household sprays etc.
Recall issues – chasing cars, cats, cyclists etc, rushing up to other dogs (either to play or fight), stubborn refusal to recall from playing, scenting, hunting or any other distraction.
The Dog Academy assists dog owners in all of these problematic areas.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss your pets problem further.
