AnnouncementAnnouncement from Archez Townhall

The Townhall of Archez would like to inform everyone that the road ‘Campoamor’ that runs between Archez and Canillas de Albaida (behind the old town hall, inbetween the traffic lights), will be closed for resurfacing and the improvement of utility services (water, electricity etc).  The works will start on Wed 8th June and will run for approximately one month.  We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but this is essential work towards the improvement of local infrastructure.

Many thanks, Mari Carmen Moreno Cordoba

Kitten Needs Home


This adorable little boy of about ten weeks old is living on a busy roadside abandoned. He is friendly and would make a lovely pet. If you can give him a good home please contact Claire and Roland – 606459894                                           rolandgillett at gmail dot com

He is in the Trapiche area but we can bring him to see you if you would prefer.


Tribute to John Cook

It is with great sorrow that we have to break the news of the death of John Cook, aged 75, last night. (Monday)

He loved Spain and was deeply loved by every one in Maro, his latest residence.

In the late nineteen-eighties he took early retirement, having been deputy headmaster at  a secondary school

in the Birmingham area for nearly thirty years. Being a live wire,he helped all students in Frigiliana Enrique Ginés school and Nerja´s I.E.S. Sierra Almijara to speak better English.

He was a mathematician, a soccer referee, a man of many passions and interests.

He loved the quiet Spanish way of life, adored our cuisine and especially fell for this beauty spot called Maro, having previously lived in La Noria and other areas. Wherever he went he made new friends among the locals and helped every one generously.

We always remember his sense of humour and grieve his loss, our loss…

Jose Manuel Cabezas, head of English at Nerja High School



Los Barriles in Nerja?

Does anyone know why this small wine bar – near to and across the road from Antica Roma- closed? Have they set up anywhere else?
Answers to Digamextra please. F. M.



Happenings in Archez…Question

Thank you Kevin for letting us know about the road closure in Archez.  Are you by any chance aware of any plans to install road barriers on the upper part of this road and onto Canillas? Since the previous trees were cut down for the new farming the road seems quite dangerous at times.

Thank you in advance.

I am an art historian available for art history lessons in the Torrox area. I specialise in contemporary art and animals in art, but I also have extensive knowledge about Hispanic-Muslim art (which made possible most of La Alhambra), early Flemish painters, gardens in art, Japanese art and culture, and other interesting topics.

Recommendation –Pet & Home Sitters

At short notice we had to go to Holland for a funeral and were desperate for petsitters. We found Sarah and Tony on Digame. We were quite worried as all our normal petsitters could not come and we were not eager to try out new people. They had to stay at our place as we have 5 dogs, 4 cats, 2 ponies and 8 chickens. However, we were very content, arrived home to very happy animals and a clean house. Highly recommended.
