Thieves between Carraspite and Cruz Miranda

You wont believe it! A simple chain -value about 4-5 €- has been stolen from my entrance to the parcella. Just cut off with a pliers and taken away. I hope this idiot will be hit by a lightning while sitting on his toilet. So be aware…

Recommendation Needed–

Can anyone recommend an excellent builder or building company for small and larger scale work on my villa located in the area of Vinuela & Alcaucin?

Recommendation –Pilates

Thanks to an article on Digame I started to go to Pilates classes at Pilates con Lorena in Torrox Pueblo, I have back problems and also arthritis and she is really helping me to overcome some of my problems.
Her classes are very reasonably priced and she provides all the equipment in a lovely studio designed for the classes, she is kind, caring and an excellent instructor, I would highly recommend her for just exercise or for people with problems where stretching and building strength can help. There are lots of classes at different times to suit everyone.
Her email is : pilatesconlorena at gmail.com Tel : 615430288



Recommendation –Motor Insurance

Having recently returned to the UK we motor insurance.  We did not realise how problematic this was going to be. Given our ‘mature’ years and having been out of the U.K for over 10 years most insurance companies did not want to know, especially with a Spanish non claims certificate!!  Our initial quote for motor insurance was £2880 .
Our saviour was our Mapfre Insurance agent in Velez Malaga Juan Porras Garcia.
Juan was always very good with both our motor and home insurance whilst we were in Spain and issued us with a no claims certificate to give to a UK insurer.  Eventually we found a company that would accept the NCD certificate, but that’s when our problems started.
Then they wanted an English translation, Juan provided this
Then they wanted an English translation including the Mapfre logo, seal and signature , Juan provided this.
Then they wanted an end date for the last renewal, on an English translation with the Mapfre logo, seal and signature , Juan provided this.
Then as the expiry date for the policy was next April that was not good enough and they then wanted a policy cancellation document in Spanish with an English translation bearing the Mapfre logo seal and signature , Juan provided it.
Now I have insurance .
If anybody in Digameland is looking for motor or home insurance I whole heartedly recommend Juan his contact details are
Juan M. Porras García
Agente Exclusivo
MAPFRE Área Regional Iberia
Canalejas 35,29700 Vélez Málaga

Give Juan a try I’m sure you will not be disappointed………Merryll.

What’s on – Nerja Foreigners Department – Conferences in English – Budget & Brexit

To clarify any errors or doubts, Nerja Town Hall Foreigners Department informs of 2 different conferences in English:

Thursday 24th November at 11 am. at Nerja Caves Restaurant, “restaurante cueva de nerja” re. The participation of Foreign Associations in the Nerja Town Hall Budget of Expenses for 2017.

A conference in English to all foreign associations of Nerja explaining the possibility that associations have to participate and give their opinion on what they would consider necessary that the Nerja Town Hall Budget of Expenses for 2017 should have and on what items money should be spent. Drinks and snacks will be offered after the conference.

Friday 25th November at 11 am. at Nerja Town Hall Meeting Room on the 2nd floor re. Brexit and what British living in Spain should do. After the recent voting of the “Brexit”, Britain leaving the European Union, the Association “Brexpats in Spain” was created.

This Association from Mijas is 2 visiting areas with a high British population to inform of what you should do and conform with the Spanish regulations if the Brexit should take place.

For example, you should

be registered on the Padron,

take out Residency,

have a fixed doctor in Spain,

change your British driving licence to a Spanish one,

pay your taxes in Spain and possibly take out Spanish Nationality, which means learning some Spanish and also knowing about Spanish culture.

The aim of the Association Brexpats in Spain is that Town Halls get involved collaborating together with other towns, so things will be easier in a near future if the Brexit should take place. The conference will be at Nerja Town Hall meeting room “salon de plenos” on the second floor. It is important that you become a member of this Association.

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