Please help to Identify Intruders in Algarrobo

Recently there have been several serious break-ins reported in Algarrobo

Campo area.

The intruders where very brutal and they even pulled out the metal bars

(rejas) fromthe wall.

The damage to the buildings has been accordingly.

In one case, the high quality cameras of ¡PERFECT Alarm!  We were able to take pictures and video of 3 criminals. Unfortunately they were wearing face masks.  Nevertheless, we would like to ask the readers  to check the attached link, to see if they can recognise any of the 3 persons.

We have uploaded a video on our homepage, so you can analyse the approach of the suspects. There might be a little detail, which you recognise and can help to find these intruders.

Please take your time and let us know if you recognised any person by the way he moves or by the clothes he is wearing.

Volunteers Needed for Torrox Shop of CUDECA

Many thanks to all the people who responded to the advertisement for volunteers

to work in the Cudeca shops in Torre del Mar and Nerja.  Strangely enough all of the

applicants were for the shop in Torre del Mar!!

This is a call to possible volunteers for Nerja.  If you could spare four hours one morning

a week Monday to Saturday we would be delighted to hear from you.  The shop is open

from 10am until 1.30pm and it helps to support the hospice in Benalmadena and several

home care teams, who attend terminally ill patients in their own homes.

If you want more information feel free to email me at 52marylynch@gmaildotcom

“Help put life into days for seriously ill patients”

Many thanks, Mary Lynch, Volunteer.

Services Available– Sausages!


In response to the person enquiring about Boerewors, we make Boerewors and will be delivering to the area this coming Monday.


Ye Ole Butchery



It’s probably easier and cheaper to make these sausages! You can find the recipe easily on the Internet. The ingredients, including the sausage casings

can be bought from Martin of Ye Old Butchery who advertises regularly on Digamextra. All you need is a mincer with a sausage nozzle attachment.

They have been Kenwood mixer accessories since the 1960’s and there are many sitting in the backs of kitchen cupboards so ask your friends if you don’t want to buy one, but a simple mincer is not expensive – you can buy a hand operated one for €24. It’s great fun making sausages and you know exactly what’s in them. It will really impress your friends too!


I lived in South Africa for 5 years. Love boerewors  and can highly recommend Martin who runs  Ye Ole Butchery. His are excellent  and he delivers !!!

Find him on Facebook. Ye Ole Butchery.   Elaine
