Response to the Attack in Torrox

I have been left speechless by the Torrox mugging post. Is this the moment in time when our lovely, safe village catches up with the rest of this horrible world we live in.

I pride myself when I tell people stories of my friends or myself walking home in the wee small hours, feeling safe in the knowledge you will make it home safe & unscathed. Boy, am I going to need to rewrite the script now or what.

I know we have had out share robberies, vandalism & petty crime over the years, but what happened to this gentleman the other day is about as scary & real as it gets.

What can we do to keep our village that I thought was frozen in time, safe from the horrors of the outside world?

The simple answer to that question is, nothing!

I just hope the police get onto this incident as quickly as they can & we as a community remain vigilant & hope that this is a one off incident.

I hope the gentleman involved in this incident, makes a full recovery, both mentally & physically.

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 –

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
