Answers to Digame




Lost Dog – is she yours ?   

Lost Dog Found

Does anybody recognise this young female found wandering around Montesol Area of Torrox Park on Tuesday morning.  We have taken her to the vets for chip scan but she doesn’t have one.  Vet says she is about 6/7 months old so still a baby.  She is very friendly and we are sure she has an owner somewhere!  Tel: 691640397 or email ganjoggies dot 3gatos at yahoo dot co dot uk.

Thank you



Unknown Plant ? Answer

– looks like a Ricinus plant.




Coffee morning For Cudecca

Last year, on the day of the Worlds Largest Coffee  Morning, we held a sale at Sol y Sombra  cafe bar, Avenida  del Faro, Torrox Costa.   We raised nearly 700 euro for Cudeca.
This year, on a smaller scale we are holding a giant raffle,  and tickets are selling fast.
If you have a bottle of booze, new toiletries, or any other new item that would make a prize, and you are happy to donate to this worthwhile cause, please drop them into Kath in the bar any time before mid September.
Thank you!



Jill RemebranceRememberance-Julia Griffin  

In Loving Memory of Julia Griffin
As many people know, Julia passed away on July 23rd at her home in Punta Lara.
A funeral service is being held in Leamington Spa on Friday August 26th but her friends here are arranging to gather in Nerja to remember and celebrate her life.
We plan to meet at 3pm on the 26th at the eastern end of the Torrecilla beach on the walkway from the Plaza Fabrica de los Cangrejos. In other words along the seafront to the left of the Bamboo Restaurant!
Julia had lived in Nerja for many years and had lots of friends so this is a chance to remember all of the good times. Please come along and pass on the details to anyone who may have known Julia

I see all too often on all the Facebook Buy See Swap sites the amount of animals that need rescuing, help and support here in Spain.
I have 6 dogs of my own so can’t take any in sadly but what I can do is try to financially help those charities that do go the extra mile in helping these animals.
I’m not asking you to donate yourselves because that’s what I intend to do from any jobs I do.
I will donate 5% of the total cost of any job over 100€ to local animal charities.

So if you have a painting job you’ve been putting off now’s your chance.

Get the job done and help me support local animal charities in the process.
Every donation will go to a different local charity and the amount and charity details  will be placed online.
