Services Available – Singing Lessons

Hello lovely sunny people.

I am an experienced singing teacher and have just moved over to the sunny climes of Nerja – with 5 years worth of teaching experience in London and the South of England I have been lucky enough to teach 7 year olds to 90 year olds, and all the ones in between. I am now wanting to help potential singers over here to.

If you have ever felt like you have wanted singing lessons, or lack confidence with anything in your life, then learning to sing can improve this. If you have breathing troubles, then my technique of combining Classical training and modern training together, can really enhance your life.
Or even if you just love music and singing and your too scared to do this alone I am here to help.

I am a grade 8 classically trained singer, with a degree in Vocal performance from a renowned contemporary music school in Guildford. With experience in Musical theatre and pop, I am a published songwriter. And I have toured California with the 80’s band ABC. Please do check my website –


Please do email me georgiecullum  @ gmail.com

or call me on 95124 7255

to have a chat about lessons and prices,

I am very flexible and I can come to you wherever you are.

I very much hope to hear from you!

(Fully endorsed by your Editor too ! Jane)


Centro Dental in Nerja, Calle Bronze 2. has a technician’s laboratory attached and would I am sure undertake repairs to dentures.

Telephone 952 52 88 69

Movil: 628 43 93 99

It is easy to access being about 3 mins walk from SuperSol at the roundabout near the bridge.

Martin & Sally


In reply to T.W. in today’s Digamextra: I went to Dentis Centro Dental in Torre del Mar yesterday with a denture emergency. I would add that this is my regular dentist. They repaired my old, broken UK made denture in hours and I have arranged for a brand new denture to be made. First fitting in the morning.

Staff are brilliant. Technician is on site. English speaking if required.

Better still, if you have a Simple Care card, you receive a very good discount. Prices are very sensible. The clinic can be found on the main road (Avenida Andalucia 86). Almost opposite the large pharmacy and close to the main taxi rank.




Recommendations – English Breakfast

In reply to Eddy, I can offer the advice that Cafe El Eden, on the
main car park in Torre, does a very fine two eggs and bacon with toast
and butter if you want it.   For many years I have thought it the best
available locally, used to be perfectly cooked eggs with 6 rashers.
But I haven’t been for a while, so it may have changed.

What’s On – Talk Radio Europe- Help !

Talk Radio Europe 105.5fm in the Axarquia (sometimes 91.5fm).

TRE was voted Third TESCA Best Radio by expats worldwide in the Expat Survey Consumer Awards 2016.

Firstly, In a bid to improve reception here in the Axarquia, Talk Radio Europe has been making some technical adjustments.  Some areas are easier to reach than others, that’s why we need your help.

Can you spare a little time to drop us an email with your location (very important) and your honest opinion of the reception quality.  The type of device you are listening on would also be useful but not essential.

Your comments would be very much appreciated.

Please send your reception report/location to:

colette @ talkradioeurope.com

With you help we can make a difference for everyone to enjoy.  Thank you in anticipation.

Secondly, A slight change to programming………………….

Howard Brereton will be presenting a live Sunday Supplement show on Sundays from 10am, featuring the weekly interview between Howard and Bill Blevins of Blevins Franks.

Howard’s Radio in Black and White show will move one hour earlier to 9am Sunday.



Thank You – Success With the Correct Information !!

Yesterday you published an advert for me for an amp/speakers, plus notice boards.  You were kind enough to check the picture of the amp and include the make and model in the advert, which I had omitted. This I’m sure contributed to the fact it sold within a couple of hours of Digamextra going out.  Thanks very much for your hard work with Digamextra, it is appreciated.

tc-me-smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail.com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in  JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

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. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
