Rubbish – Appeal for Tidiness


Can I make an appeal to people that think overflowing bins like this are acceptable? If your nearest bin is full, please make an effort to take your rubbish to the multiple bins, skips and recycling points that are located at the (previously known as) ‘tip’

There are plenty of other re-cycle points and bins around. If you don’t want a smelly bag of rubbish in your car then hang it from your rear windscreen.

If you are a holiday villa owner, or property management company, please instill in your rental guests the importance of disposing of rubbish in a sensible manner and encourage them to re-cycle.

Don’t just moan that the Ayuntamiento isn’t collecting it regularly enough – I have already written to the Alcalde. Let’s all be pro active and sensible in rubbish disposal and recycling and keep our beautiful village of Cómpeta clean and tidy.

Fire in Nerja

Is this the first fire this year near Nerja ?

On Sunday evening the familiar sound of the water bombing helicopter could be heard over the motorway tunnel to the west of Nerja.

They do a wonderful job – but the Bomberos seem very unfamiliar with their local region and one can watch them trying to get near the fire along tracks that locals know will never reach the place.

The Guadia Civil seem to suffer from the same lack of local knowledge.

TC-ME smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
