Volunteers wanted in the Cudeca Shops
Do you have four hours, once a week to volunteer in either of the Cudeca Shops in Nerja or Torre del Mar?
The Nerja shop opens six days from 10am until 1.30pm.
The shop at Torre del Mar also opens in the afternoons from 17.30 until 19.30 Monday till Friday.
During the Winter we have plenty of volunteers but come the Summer many of our helpers have family out on holiday or go
If you can only commit to a month that would be a big help. The income from the Cudeca shops support the Hospice at Benalmadena and the Hospice home care teams who attend people in their own homes. Please help put life into days for seriously ill
If you are interested you can contact me for further details 52marylynch@gmaildotcom
Many thanks Mary Lynch Cudeca Volunteer.

Recent Trip to Barcelona
Back now from our break in Barcelona and for those who asked, here are
the details (eventually) of who we booked the
airport transfer from Barcelona with, as promised.
It was booked in advance on line with Barcelona airport taxis – barcelonaairporttaxis.com
Although the flight was delayed, it was reassuring to have the driver there
still waiting for us in such a busy place.
Chance of a Lifetime for Negro
He belongs to a neighbor who yesterday gave us permission to find him a good home.
He’s under 2 years old and doesn’t appear sick, but we would have him
tested if someone comes forward to adopt him. Contact me via email if interested.
He so deserves a chance.

Car Valeting Recommendation.
Having seen Kevin and Jenny’s entry for car valeting in Digame
and those from various satisfied customers I decided to give them a try.
I have to say that I was more than totally satisfied.
Their response to my initial enquiry and the service they gave was excellent
and I now have a thoroughly clean car once again.
I thoroughly recommend them.
PS Kevin & Jenny also clean rugs and sofas.
Services available: Photo Restoration – Contact details
Revised phone number – 68204428 or rbphotos26 at gmail .com

Recommendation – House/pet Sitter
We would like to recommend Rebekah Allen-Smith for house /pet sitting.
It was obvious straight away how much she loved animals.
Our dog was walked regularly and even taken out further afield by car
and I know he got lots of cuddles,
She kept in touch while we were away for 3 weeks, and left the house
clean and tidy
A very reliable and delightful girl.
Based in Competa, Her contact details are
Thanks again from Rob and Julie Narewski
Recommendation –Where to buy a TV
(1) The best place to buy televisions in my experience is Carrefour, there is one at Centro Commercial Total, near Rincon de La Victoria.
They have a good selection of models and the prices are usually lower than elsewhere. There is a website where you can check all the prices.
We saved over 100 euros on our Samsung Smart TV
Jan – Benajarafe
(2) I wouldn’t bother having a TV sent over from the UK. If it goes wrong then it would be difficult to send it back (as our German neighbours and found with their new German-bought TV that went wrong almost immediately they came here). They are not that expensive here and we have not had any problems buying or returning electrical goods from either Worten or Carrefour. Barbara
