New CAS Shop in Nerja

The Costa Animal Society (CAS) has moved its charity shop to a newer, larger place in a better location in Nerja.  The new premises are located at No. 2 Calle Castilla Perez on the corner of the main road into town that crosses the old bridge.  You pass Supersol and will find the charity store at the next round-a-bout next door to the Good Stuff Café.  The doors open for business on Monday, December 5th and the shop hours will be between 10am to 2pm, Monday through Saturday.  Come on by and pick up good quality second hand clothing and bric-a-brac at bargain prices and remember the proceeds go towards helping animals in need.




Re: Choir carol concert in Competa:

Yes sadly One Voice disbanded in the summer. However several of us are now singing with Coraxalia in Viñuela. There are a few Xmas concerts taking place in the area and we have been pushing for one in Competa.

But for various reasons it was confirmed yesterday that it’s not going to happen.

Hopefully it will be reinstated next year!  Lorna



Power Cuts Advice Please

Could any tech Digamites help please:

We have an apartment in Torrox Costa. Occasionally we get a power-cut.After a couple of minutes the power is restored.Sometimes,however we get a different sort of outage, whereby the the big black switch in the fuse is thrown and we have to flick back the switch to restore the power.

The former type of cut is OK but the latter could be a nuisance if we are not at home to throw the switch back. (fridge/freezer without power etc).

Can anyone explain the difference between the two types of outage and do we have a specific problem in the apartment?

A reply to Digame might be useful for other readers with similar problems.

Thanks in anticipation

We have our BIG concert, again in Granada in March.  I have forwarded your message to our conductor, Eusebio Pita Venegas and you never know, he may find time to fit another concert in.

Plaza Almijara.

If the weather is bad, the market will be held in the Underground Carpark, below the Town Hall.

Many thanks, and fingers crossed it does not rain..



 What’s onUrgent – help needed from someone in Periana!

There was a post yesterday on digame about the market at Periana on Sunday 4th – unfortunately the only contact details were Periana town hall, which was closed by the time I saw the post.

Is there anyone out there who can give me an email or phone number of Jose who appears to be organising it, or indeed anyone else who is involved with it?

I would like to have a stall on Sunday if there is still room. You can email me on wendy.sedella @ hotmail.com or phone 951069997.

Would be very grateful if anyone can help in any way.

Thanks  Wendy

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

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.
