Purse Found on Nerja Beach

Whilst we were at the beach on Sunday afternoon a purse was discovered on the wall behind Hotel/Restaurante Jose Cruz.
It contained a couple of hundred euros and several cards.
A German lady took it away promising to hand it in to Santander bank (noted from one of the cards) Monday morning.
Hopefully – this happened and the owner has been reunited with all the contents

Free Hot Tub – Confusion Resolved

I am sorry that some people do not seem to be able to get through to me. However, I already have a person interested who did use the address so not sure what has happened!! However, this is my email address again: {linsi@lnznwills.com} and I think you need me to put it in this format

linsi @ lnznwills. com.  So please could you put it in again with my email address again.

Many thanks





Services Availablefor house-sitting May (flexible)
Retired couple, now living in the UK, but previously in Caleta de Velez, would like to return to the area for about a month between the end of April & June.  Before we rent somewhere I wondered if anybody is looking house sitters for some or all of that period ?  We have done lots of house sitting before, and would treat your home as if it were our own.
We will be driving over in our own car, so do not need transport.  We will be bringing our small dog with us, so you would need to be happy with that.

We do not want paying, but do need wifi and to be located near the coast.
Please contact me at janlberry @ hotmail dot com if you are interested.



Services Available   Laptop, Tablet – Software Repairs and Maintenance.

Do you have a Windows system that has become unstable, sluggish, or particular programs no longer function correctly or as smoothly as they used to? You may have corrupted software or you may have caught a virus or some other infection and these can often be a nightmare to remove. Your system may require a thorough health check.

I can provide a complete Windows overhaul, including a virus and malware cleansing service.

I live in Torrox Costa but can travel any reasonable distance.

Recommendation –for Warren Phillips/Car Clean Malaga.

I had my 15 year old cabriolet ‘cleaned’ by Warren for my birthday. But cleaned does not say enough. He took it and left me a car to use and when it came back it was unbelievable.

It was like new inside and out (even the engine!). All the dings and scratches sorted, a couple of loose bits reattached and where I thought the steering wheel had lost its colour I found it was 15 years of my grubby hands.  So thank you Warren.

I thoroughly recommend him (tel 618346098) and no-I’m not on commission.  Just delighted.

Now my husband wants his done as well.




Recommendation Needed – Fitten Kitchen

We are looking to install a new fitted kitchen.

Any recommendations on suppliers of kitchen units and

granite or silestone(?) worktops?

Recommendation – First Aid Training

I attended the basic first aid course which was conducted by Jason Bland of SCL First Aid Training in Viñuela.

The content was both interesting and informative and includes the recovery position, CPR and abdominal thrusts (The Heimlich manoeuvre). We were all involved in role-play to practice the techniques required to help and comfort an injured person and quite possibly keep them alive until professional medical help arrives.

I, like most of us, was ignorant with regards to procedures, should a tragic accident take place. Although I had watched countless episodes of Holby City!

I now feel much more confident to deal with a situation should it arise.

In the UK less than 1 in 10 people survive an out of hospital cardiac arrest, however, in Norway the survival rate is 1 in 4, why? Because CPR is taught in secondary schools.

As many of us live in ‘campo’ areas, the difference between life and death might be first aid training.

Jason also runs other courses from basic to advanced, should you wish to enrol at the next course you can contact him on his e-mail address: info @ stockwoodconsulting. co. uk (remove spaces).
