Nerja Feria Guides

There are two publications available around town. Spanish and English.

These links show digital versions of exactly the same things if you can’t get hold of the paper versions.



Many thanks to Matt for alerting us to these guides. Editor



Driving Licence Renewal

You don’t have to wait until you are 65, it can be exchanged at any age.
You, or a gestor on your behalf, have to exchange to licence at Traffico in Malaga. There is no other way. It is quite easy to do yourself.
You might need a medical which can be done at Clinica Rincon. In theory you don’t need one but Traffico will ask for one.
Once you have your licence it can be renewed at places like Clinica Rincon and they will do everything for you.
Cheers, Gerry



What can you get for €1 ?


What can you buy with a euro? Pledge it to Axarquia Animal Rescue and we´ll get real value from it.
Please click on the link to pledge just €1 a month. (This amount will never change.)
Knowing that regular donations are coming in allows us to order much needed items such as the scalibor collars that we need for all our dogs to prevent leish.

Recommendation – Hairdresser

Pelequeria Low Cost Tinte is a new hairdresser on Avda Andalucia in Torre del Mar.

Having paid 15 or 20 euros previously for cuts that were just okay, I decided to invest just 5 euros, and got not only good styling, but what I actually asked for! Take a picture with you, they don’t speak English, take a ticket when you go in and wait your turn.

I have waited longer when I’ve had an appointment at some places, both here and in the UK!

Your email address must be quoted in this format…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.
