Watch the Space Station here!

I don’t know if any digamites would be interested but we have been watching the Space station passing overhead this morning – if interested Google “spot the station” and you can register to be told when it will be passing, what area (in the sky) and for how long.    We started watching it when Tim Peake was on board – perhaps others might enjoy it or pass the information on to family members – you can choose the area you want to know about.

Services Available – Singing Lessons

Hello lovely sunny people, happy new year!

I am an experienced singing teacher and have just moved over to the sunny climes of Nerja – with 5 years worth of teaching experience in London and the South of England I have been lucky enough to teach 7 year olds to 90 year olds, and all the ones in between. I am now wanting to help potential singers over here to.

If you have ever felt like you have wanted singing lessons, or lack confidence with anything in your life, then learning to sing can improve this. If you have breathing troubles, then my technique of combining Classical training and modern training together, can really enhance your life.
Or even if you just love music and singing and your too scared to do this alone I am here to help.

I am a grade 8 classically trained singer, with a degree in Vocal performance from a renowned contemporary music school in Guildford. With experience in Musical theatre and pop, I am a published songwriter. And I have toured California with the 80’s band ABC. Please do check my website –


Please do email me georgiecullum@ gmail.com (delete spaces) or call me on 95124 7255 to have a chat about lessons and prices, I am very flexible and I can come to you where ever you are.

I very much hope to hear from you!





Recommendation –Carer

I want to recommend Anna as a caregiver.

She is very attentive, lovely lady.

For one week she was taking care of my sick  husband and

we were very happy with her job.

What’s on- Trip to the zoo at Castellar de la Fronter

The Phoenix Club are off to the Zoo at Castellar de la Frontera on Friday 18th March 2017.hw far is it to Castellar de la Frontera from Torre del Mar

About the Zoo de Castellar – The ‘zoo’ de Castellar is not your typical zoo. It was started as a private rescue sanctuary back in 1998 and was finally opened to the public in 2002.

For years it remained relatively unknown and unvisited. Word of mouth ensuring its survival. Bit-by-bit things are beginning to change.  All of the animals have been rescued by the customs or police.

Its location is of no coincidence, conveniently located near the border; most of the residents were victims of illegal animal smuggling between Europe and Africa.  Some were also rescued from circuses. From its most famous resident ‘Princessa’, a four month old Bengali Tiger to emus, Vietnamese pot bellied pigs, monkeys, all kinds of birds, a hyena, rabbits, even domestic chickens, the zoo has a wide diversity of animals. Over 500 to be exact, from 120 different species.

The refuge centre opened its doors to the public in 2002, mainly to raise funds for the ever increasing number of animals but also in an attempt to educate visitors to their plight.

The zoo is very open and interactive; we are encouraged to touch and meet the animals.

The facilities are basic and are constantly being updated. You can buy small bags of seeds for 1€ as you enter and can walk around feeding the animals.

The petting areas are well controlled, the staff seem to know what they are doing and above all it is an experience we will not forget.

There are not many places where you can play with a live tiger or feed lemurs by hand.
