Hi, I’m currently banking with Sabadell in Madrid but now have a property in Torrox. I would welcome your views on (a) the service received at the Torrox branch in Torrox and (b) how easy/difficult is it to change bank in Spain.

Services AvailableBowen Technique

for Pain Relief, CFS, ME, Fibromyalgia, Whiplash, and more.

Bowen is a gentle hands-on therapy for restoring normality to the body.

The treatment is done through light clothing so there is no need to undress.

There is no force involved; no twisting, pulling, pushing, cracking, or manipulation.

It is relaxing, and pleasant, and most people say that they feel ‘lighter’ after the treatment.

Bowen is good for knees, shoulders, hips, and recovery after surgery or trauma.

Currently I am only at Trapiche Jardine Market on Tuesday mornings.

Email me to book an appointment or text 651 88 45 13.

What’s on- Tuesday 13th December NADFAS Nerja Event/ Today!

lowry lowry02 lowry03

The Cultural Centre (Casa Cultura) Calle Granada Nerja

A Fully Illustrated Lecture in English at 6pm by Michael Howard

Entrance from 5.00pm

Tickets only available on the evening

L.S. Lowry – a Visionary Artist

For further details please contact helen.sijsling@gmail.com

Sponsored by Blevins Franks International Wealth & Tax Management and there is a Christmas Tapas and Wine reception held after the Lecture

Man with Red Eyes, 1938 LS Lowry is one of Britain’s most popular artists – and yet the very familiarity of his work has stopped us looking as closely as we should at this extraordinary artist.

Coming from The Mill, 1930 He was a painter not only of the mills al the industrial north-west but also perhaps the one of the great painters of the human condition himself – the TS Eliot of modern British Art and, perhaps we could even claim him as our very own van Gogh! Come along and make up your own mind.

About Michael Howard

Michael is President of Bolton NADFAS and until recently he was the Course Leader of the School of the History of Art and Design at the Manchester Metropolitan University, where he taught both academic and studio-based students. He is a practising artist, a painter, sculptor, printmaker and ceramicist.

The artist in front of his easel

He has exhibited at the Royal Academy; his work is represented in the Manchester Art Gallery and in many private collections in the UK and abroad.

He and his wife the painter Ghislaine Howard live in Glossop Derbyshire close to Lowry’s home. Michael has written the major text on LS. Lowry and has curated a number of exhibitions including Lowry’s industrial Landscape of 1953 at the Lowry December 2007-May 2008.

Michael has published widely on European art ot the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, mostly on the impressionists. His other books include L S. Lowry: A Visionary Artist, (He also worked on the film on the artist that acts as an introduction to the artist’s life and work at the Lowry Centre), He was commissioned to write a personal guide to the Manchester Art Gallery.

Michael represented the UK at the 2006 Varna Biennale and has featured on television and radio many times and in 2004 he and Ghislaine worked on the film Degas and the Dance which has received many awards including one of the prestigious Peabody awards.

Thank you

Best wishes
