Warning – Be Wary on our Beaches

A warning to all beach goers and families, yesterday a friend of ours lost his mobile  phones and wallet on Penoncillo beach. His wife was sitting on a sun bed reading when the robber must have come up within a metre of her and took two I phones and a wallet out of a bag. The owner of the bag had just gone into the sea so it was only a couple of minutes when nobody was right next to the bag.

Please warn all your friends. Don t leave anything valuable unattended for even a minute. These robbers are so fast and daring

Rental Needed- Long Term a year next Sept (2017)

We are a Danish couple female 51, male 53 with a small dog (4 kilos) needing a long term rental country house with pool 🙂 in the area around Competa.

I know it’s very early to look for this as we are not moving out of Denmark before next year in September,(due to newborn grandson) but thinking if someone knows that they will move back home or something we could make an early agreement. Please contact . tonny @ pmcdanmark.dk.




Recommendation- Chiropodist

To those people who were kind enough to recommend Amanda Stockton,
Chiropodist, to me, my profound thanks.

She came to us this morning,
charming lady and excellent at her job.

My feet are totally different!  It will not be her last visit!
Jeremy, Algarrobo



Recommendation Removals- Purias Impact

I know many Digamites have recommended many local removals, I have a special one who moved me from Competa to Cambridge 6 years ago.  All furniture was export wrapped, no matter how large the units (I had alot of furniture) and so many delicate items.  Purias Impact from Murcia were so professional, polite and efficient both inSpain and in the UK.  I cannot recommend them highly enough.  There was not one breakage of a delicate item, or a scratch on the heavy furniture.  Storage was not a problem and they fitted everything in with my timescale.  You can contact them for enquiries either by phone on 0034 968 654 667 or info@advancemoves.com   You can check out the website yourself at Advancemoves.  Good luck. Maryanne, Cambridge.



Recommendation Pool Lights

Thanks to  Jeff at pool tech Nerja who responded to my request through Digame to change my pool light bulbs very efficient
David Frigiliana



Recommendation- Kennels

Thanks to Lucy and Terry at Weston Kennels on the road into Competa.
They looked after our 5 month old puppy and spoiled her rotten, she
didn’t want to come home!
Alison and Colin



Recommendations Needed

Eye Specialist

Recommendations, please, for an English speaking eye specialist, preferably in Torre del Mar but anywhere between Nerja and Malaga will do.


Recommendations, please, for a good, reliable removals and storage company which could pack up a whole house and store the contents (equivalent of a 40 foot container) securely, possibly long-term.

Answers please to Digame.




RecommendationExcellent building work

We have had Competa Properties carrying out building work for us. The men arrived on time, worked hard all day and the job was completed on time. To our delight today when returning home we found cleaners had been and all the areas that had become dusty had been cleaned (a job I was not looking forward to). It is good to find a company that obviously takes pride in its work. A Gold Star should be awarded.    Norma

What was On Nerja 41 club attended Almijara Bowls Club 


Members of Nerja 41 Club (Ex Round Tablers) and our ladies spent a very enjoyable evening at the Almijara Bowls Club just off the Capistrano roundabout in Nerja.  After some excellent instruction from members of the Bowls Club we all blamed the heat for our poor performance.  A great evening of fun and fellowship was followed by a meal and Club Meeting with our ladies at the Nerja Club Hotel.  Chairman Jim Skinner was very pleased with the outcome of the evening and has plans for many more interesting and different evenings during his year as Chairman.

Nerja 41 Club meets twice a month.  On the first Thursday of the month we have our MUNCH BUNCH when we go out for a ‘menu del dia’ with our ladies and on the third Thursday of the month the members have an evening meeting and many of our ladies, who wish to, go out for a meal.  Most of our members are only in Spain for 3 to 6 months of the year so if any Ex Tablers would like to come along you can contact us via www.41clubnerja.org or ring Alfie on 626998626
