Land Needed to Rent –  Urgently

APA Nerja Estacion Esperanza is a dog refuge, which will have to be closing on October 31st.
We are desperately looking for a small piece of land to rent anywhere in the Nerja Frigiliana, Maro Torrox Campo areas .. Size of a football pitch-  so hot huge
Would be nice if the piece of land had a few trees for shade but the association will do the fencing and pens etc
If anyone knows of anybody who might have something similar to rent out please either contact the association on their face book page or me
Gipsy48 @ yahoo.com and I will pass on any messages received
Anything and everything will be considered
We have 25 dogs to house and time is short
Thank you



Spanish Nationality

Has anyone yet applied for Spanish nationality?  If so, are you finding the papework onerous or do you use a gestor?  Perhaps a discussion on this topic could be useful to quite a few of us re our experiences, hopes and opinions about what the future holds etc?

Daisy R


Are there any clubs in the area for the above for an 8 year old boy, just moved here with, as yet, little Spanish. He’s very willing to join in and would love to do some sport in his new home.
Many thanks

What’s on A 2nd International Art Symposium!

We are organizing another Symposium LUZ in Competa, it will take place 17 October – 22 October

.This time also with a demonstration of bronze casting (and a course casting your own little bronze sculpture)

7 days of Inspiration, Creation, Art, Friendship and Joy Exhibition of the artworks in the Gallery opening of the week Monday 17 October, Artists will do an artist talk with PowerPoint

Working days: Monday afternoon, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday morning

Inauguration of the art exhibition in Gallery ‘Luz de la Vida’  Saturday 22 October 12p.m.

Keep the dates free!  Feel welcome to come and have a look

This symposium brings people together. For a short period of time artists from all over the world gather to exchange information, techniques and ideas related to their profession. These artists, painters and sculptors from different backgrounds will inspire each other and will be able to see their colleagues at work.

The event will broaden horizons. It helps improve the understanding of other cultures, countries and art. The symposium is a public event using local spaces in Cómpeta and surroundings where locals, art-lovers and visitors can meet the artists and experience how they create their own particular style, with spontaneity, originality and creativity. At the end an exhibition will be held to present all art created during the week. The LUZ Symposium will be held in the marvellous environment of the Andalusian mountain village Competa. The village is surrounded by beautiful nature. No doubt that the Spanish culture, the sun, sky, mountains and the sea will inspire the participating artists…
We’ll keep you updated!

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

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