Host Family Required

I was wondering if you might be able to help, my son is looking to live out in Torrox from Aug 1st – April 1st to take part in a football program.
He is looking for a host family or a room in shared Accommodation to help with the cost.
He is also looking for a part time job to help raise some funds to help fund this football experience.
Would you have any ideas on how best way to help with this.
Many thanks

Warning re Removal Lorry

You cannot matriculate (put on Spanish plates) a right hand drive commercial Vehicle here in Spain, so if you want to purchase the Vehicle to take back to the UK, then that’s fine, but if you want to use it here in Spain, then you only have 6 months use of it, it then has to be scrapped or taken out of the country. Of course you can continue to use it until the Guardia stop you, but remember you are not insured, even though you think you are. Look at your policy

“Vehicles must be road legal at all times”, after 6 months the Vehicle is not road legal.

The main reason you cannot matriculate the Vehicle is a vision problem,

imagine you are approaching a main road from the left on a road which is set at 45 degrees to the main road, there is no way you can see if any vehicles are approaching from the left when you are sat in the right hand driver’s seat.  So if you want to buy it, go ahead, just be aware of the above.        Lucy.



Re signing Ukgov petitions (mentioned in yesterdays issue)

You do not need a UK address to sign the uk gov petitions (https://petition.parliament.uk) you just need to tick the box to confirm you are a British Citizen. M.M.

Services Needed-Gardener

In Digame I read of a young Spanish male who undertakes gardening jobs. He advertised he had transport and brings his own tools.

I need help pruning and tidying borders etc. Are you that person. Or do you know how I can contact him.

Did I read recommendations on Digame.

Gardener needed in Canillas de Albaida (not Campo)
Tel 666819623.



Recommendation Needed–Hotel Vouchers

Halcón travel agents use the voucher system. I think they are in calle diputación in Nerja.

I tried responding to the enquirer but my message was returned. Pete

(Editor writes – I suspect the message was returned because the respondent did not remove the spaces I’d inserted into the email address in order to protect the person’s personal data . J)

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. 

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.
