Burglaries in Lomilla Area of Competa

Recently, some rascals broke into our as well as our neighbour’s house, when we were away. They left a mess – and a large number of keys (photo), which we handed over to the helpful officers from the Torrox Guardia Civil, who came fairly quickly at the request of the Policia Local of Cómpeta, who were first on the scene.     The keys are now with the GC in Cómpeta – if anyone missing them. They stole some strange items: old electrical equipment, old bags and rucksacks (one National Geographic), the latter probably to carry away the stuff. If you came across a suspicious pile dumped somewhere, then perhaps there is something, which I would like to get back, so please contact me in that case: birgit.fastrup @ gmail.com

Recommendation – Opticians

Martin Opticas Algarrobo

I have used Martin Opticas for a number of years and they have always given very good service.

The eye test they give is also accurate as regards the type and strength of your lens.

The glasses have always been of good quality, and they never charge if you need them cleaned or adjusted at a later date.

Like all the other “High Street” opticians, such as Martins and Specsavers, the eye test is only basic, which is fine for choosing lens, however I would suggest occasionaly having a full eye test which can often detect other underlying problems with your eyes and general health.

For this type of test I would recommend Clinica Hidalgo in Velez Malaga, they will give your eyes a thorough check over and provide you with a lens prescription, which you can then take to Martins to supply glasses. It costs around 50 euros for the eye examination at Hidalgo.

Their contact details can be found on their website  www.clinicahidalgo.es



Recommendation – Gray Heating and Plumbing

I’ve just had my ageing gas boiler replaced very efficiently by Nick Gray Heating and Plumbing. He diagnosed the problem, sourced and purchased a new boiler and fitted it complete with an anti-calc filter. He cleared away the old boiler and thoroughly tested the new one. He has 19 years experience in the UK. I recommend him.He can contacted on:

Recommendation – For Qualified Osteopath

Just wanted to share with you a little Gem we found whilst taking a walk down by Peñoncillo Beach (Torrox-Costa) with my husband – her name is Bianca (Clínica Casa Blanca).

It was my husband who picked up a leaflet as I’d been suffering with neck and lower back pain. I’d been seeing an Osteopath for 2 years before moving out here and hadn’t been able to get past a month before needing more treatment – so worth a try I thought!

After having 3 sessions with Bianca I felt as though a dark cloud had been lifted from my head, I felt lighter, taller and actually had a spring in my step for the first time in years.

My husband has also had treatment with Bianca for his shoulders, hips and knees – he also had 3 sessions. I have now gone for almost a year between treatments and my husband hasn’t had to return at all.

So a Big Thank You to our Little Gem Bianca for your Healing Hands and making our lives pain free.

Bianca can be found at Clinica Casa Blanca and is a qualified  Osteopath and super qualified for a range of treatments.
Appointments: Tel 952 96 7628 / 659 374 673

How to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in  JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this format…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.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
