Torrox Lighthouse

The light still shines but only to the sea. Neighbours complained that it was invasive so shields were put up at the sides. Ships are still safe and the light can be seen along the coast. Visit the centre below the lighthouse (if you can catch it open) – wonderful museum and gives the history of the area. There is a Roman Market there next weekend from 2nd September.

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.

Services Available- Work Opportunity  

Helping Hands has been supporting people with award winning care in the UK since 1989
enabling customers to remain in the familiarity of their own homes, surrounded by things that they love.
As the leading provider of care in the UK, we have a network of regional offices , managers and
trainers to support and develop our carers who are the heart of our business.
We are currently looking for Spanish based potential carers to work in the UK, whilst experience
can be beneficial it is not essential as you will be given full training.
Our Spanish based Live-in carers find that, not only is Live-in care a rewarding career but it also
fits well with Spanish and UK lifestyles, as well as being in the UK for a few weeks supplementing
their income they also get to visit family and friends – it’s the perfect balance.
For information about our forthcoming recruitment and training events are being held in Spain the next event is 12thto 16th Sept interviews taking place next week along the costa del sol.

Recommendation-Transport services received. Excellent

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.
