Services Needed- Metal Casting etc….

Small metal casting and enameling help required

I am trying to replace a lost designer logo on a shoe.

Despite evidence of its loss the company will not replace it.

My only alternative is to make a mould from its partner and

then cast a new one and enamel it.

It may cost as much as buying a whole pair of shoes, except there is huge sentimental value, and the items are unique.

I’ve seen people advertise classes in this type of hobby, so can anyone please help?

Services Available? Las Perlas ?

We normally visit Spain every year for three to four months, but last year due to family circumstances we were unable to come. So as we are here now we were really looking forward to a restaurant that we had eaten at called ‘Las Perlas’ in Torre del Mar. Looking at the web site it seems that it may have closed. Can anyone confirm this for me, we are just hoping that they have moved as the food was so good no other restaurant came up to this standard.
Any information about it would be gratefully received.

Info to Digamextra please



Recommendation – Pet & House Sitting Service

In Yesterday’s Digamextra I read the ad from Marian and Don about Pet/House Sitting.

They have stayed at our home twice and they are the lovely, kind and caring people.  I can warmly recommend them to anyone in need of caring for their Pets or home.

I have three dogs and two cats and everything was neat and well taking care of. When we came home in the evening, a pot of YUMMY homemade soup was waiting for us so I didn’t have to cook. WOW

Thanks again to the Marian and Don until next time

Warm Greetings Patricia

Recommendation – car mechanics in Cómpeta

I would like to recommend Automecánica Rubén.
Rubén and Devi a very friendly young couple have recently moved their car repair workshop in Competa to a new location.
Rubén and his employees work fast and efficient and really go out of their way to make it as cheap as possible. We have had both our cars there and repairs were always done in a very professional way. The new address is just behind the new Coviran supermarket to the right halfway up the steep road towards calle de circunvalacion.

It can also be reached from Plaza del Carmen by driving up and take last street to the left before reaching calle de circunvalacion.




What’s on – Introduction to Creative Writing 8-week Course

Have you always had a secret hankering to write but don’t know where to start? Have you written previously but feel a bit rusty?

This fun 8-week course will explore the basics, looking at what makes writing work and having a go at fiction, poetry and more.

Introduction to Creative Writing tutors, Andrew and Fi, will guide you gently into the writers’ life, help you gain confidence and give you the space and time to experiment and share your ideas in a safe and friendly environment.

The course will be taught in English and is for English speakers, but English doesn’t have to be your first language.

No prior experience necessary. You just need some curiosity and a willingness to have a go.

Creative writing is one of the most fulfilling ways to express yourself and best of all you’re never too young or too old to start.

Where:           Casa Paco, Plaza Almijara, Cómpeta

When:             Every Tuesday in February and March 2017, from 7-9pm

Cost:               160€ for the course (price includes a drink and tapas every week)

What’s on Afternoon Tea & Farm Walk Thru Flowering Almonds

farm-walk-etcon Saturday 4th February

Join us for organic afternoon tea and a stroll around the farm on Sunday Saturday 4th February at Casa Montes Negros near Torre del Mar. The organic farm is nestled into the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda mountains and with 160 almond trees, February is a wonderful month to head into the countryside to enjoy the beautiful blossom.

The tea is served as a buffet and is inspired by local and seasonal produce, much of it produced on the farm. Tuck into a great selection of home baked cakes (including gluten free ) scones and jam, freshly baked bread with cheese, pickles and chutneys, plus tea, coffee and infusions. Everything is freshly prepared on the day using organic ingredients. Gluten and dairy free options available if you let us know when you book

You can choose to take the walk beforehand which takes 1 hour and is of medium difficulty, starting with a walk around the farm and then down to the river before heading back up to the house and through the almond grove. For more detailed information about the walk take a look at http://www.casamontesnegros.com/farmvisitwithtea
