Anybody know  the  times & days ,The Town Hall opens to  apply for  an application form for a Padrón

A friend told me of a great way to minimise the size of the plastic bottles you throw away.
Roll the empty bottle And put the top on And it will stay rolled up.

It makes a third of the size. Helpful for the environment and easier to throw away.

We are quiet, decent folk, both in our 60’s & been overwintering in Nerja the last few years but are bringing the motor home this year to pootle about.

We don’t need frills but a clean, cosy place preferably with a fire/stove (been a bit nippy in Nerja the last few winters!!) a bath & the possibility for WiFi would be great. Fingers crossed…

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.
