CUDECA Needs Volunteers ! 


I am writing to you to inform you about the recent opening of our new furniture store in Calle Infante 46, Torre del Mar.   It is opposite our existing charity shop.

We are looking for volunteers who have a free morning or afternoon every week to help us to sell second hand furniture and attend to customers in the new store. There are lots of interesting things to be done, the Charity Shops are open to one and all!

I would be very grateful if you could please support us with this campaign by contacting your friends via social network etc.  Attached is the poster which we have designed in English asking for help, which you can please use.  Would you like to help us?

Contact the Volunteer Department now: 952 56 49 10 // 671 048 304;

voluntariado @ cudeca.org

I will appreciate any help you can give us to ensure the success of our new and exciting venture.

With warm regards.

Can Anyone Help Me To Identify These Unwanted Intruders.

We returned to our apartment in Nerja last week after having been in the UK since June.When we opened the food cupboards we found lots of these tiny black insects who, despite flour and sugar being kept in what we thought were airtight jars,had got in and were very active.These two in the photo were found in the bottom of the freezer!.Before we left in June we sprayed with moth killer insecticide,as we had found a number of very small moths on the kitchen.Whether these two events are related,I do not know.If anyone can help identify these insects and indeed recommend how to get rid of them,we would be very much obliged.
