Law of Shooting in Campo

Can anybody out there in digamextra land please tell me the law on shooting near houses in the campo

I have been told they are not to come within 150mtrs of a property but am not sure if this is actually the law and I had one hunter shooting

approx 10mtrs from my front gate-  which made my small dog run off,!

I have her back now by the way.

thanks Robin

Respond to Digamextra please

Services Needed Gardening

Lady living just outside the village of Benamargosa needs help with keeping her garden tidy once a month.  She suffers with Osteoarthritis and is finding it difficult to manage.  Small pension only so this would be voluntary work so please help.
She has very little mobile phone cover, even with Movistar, so it will have to be a text message.  Thank you.
Tel. Number: 649 034 486.

Recommendations Needed –Fibre Optic Advice

As a (very happy) customer of Movistar over the last 3 years, they have offered me the option of upgrading to their new fibre-optic broadband. It will cost a little more each month, but they are guaranteeing 300mb speed.

We currently get around 8mb,which,to be honest, is perfectly adequate for our devices

However, the prospect of a speed 37 times faster is a huge draw!

Do any of you Digamites have experience of this Movistar package, or even experience of such a high speed?……….possibly too good to be true?

Any experiences would be appreciated.

please email me on:        jon108 @ Hotmail dot co.uk

Thank you Diggers.



Recommendation – Air Conditioning

I would fully recommend Keith from Cooltec for Airconditioning and attendant sensors.

Keith is English but resides in Nerja, which is a plus for us. He recently fitted air conditioning and sensors in our apartment in Nerja to a very high standard with the minimum of fuss and disruption. We had a very small window of opportunity in which to commission the work. By pre arranged appointment Keith surveyed our property, provided us with a detailed quote, and installation works were completed within the same week. We found Keith to be trustworthy, punctual and reliable. He turned up on time and stuck with the job till it was completed. He was professional, efficient, clean and tidy and courteous throughout. His final invoice contained no hidden surprises.

Anita and Chris Cooke



Recommendation  for Gary Mayes Construction

We would like to recommend Gary Mayes and his team of electricians, plumbers, painters, decorators, tillers and cleaners for the excellent workmanship when clearing, cleaning and restoring the first floor of our house after a fire caused massive damage.

Gary’s Spanish and British team worked quickly, thoroughly and sensitively, throughout the job.

I would certainly use them for any future building works.

He is contacted by email gary.mayes @ hotmail.co.uk

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.
