Services Needed – Pool Person

I am looking for a person to look after my pool from mid May

until the end off September.

This will include weekly visits to test and treat  (if necessary) the water,

net any debris from the pool , clean out skimmers and vacuum if required. Backwash and rinse the filter.

Not a difficult job for the right person.

Location near to Archez.

Service Needed Overpaid Pension Reclaim

We moved to Spain June 2015 {Velez Malaga area} and have recently discovered Digame/DigamExtra. All was fine until last June when we received a letter from a Personal Pension provider telling me I had been overpaid this pension and was never entitled to it. They are now asking for reclamation of the amount paid which we would severely struggle to pay. My wife and I are both 67 and live on UK pensions as income. As you can imagine I am looking for assistance from  a person with experience in this field living in the expat community who can help with my rights regarding this and who would be rewarded for their kind efforts. Obviously confidentiality is of paramount importance to us and initial contact would be by telephone only { 666952916 }.

There are more details to this obviously Jane but flesh will be put on the bones if I can meet the right person. Should you require a headline then anything similar to ” Overpaid Pension Reclaim ” would be fine. Thank you in advance for any help you can muster!

Kind regards

Services Needed Satellite Installer

Hello Digamites.

I have recently returned to Spain and am wondering if it is

still possible to pick up TV on a 1.4m dish here?

I did notice some information on “a ban on foreign TV services”

so any info on what that’s about would be appreciated.

If it is possible can anyone recommend a reliable professional installer,

with the emphasis on professional, as I don’t want to be billed by

someone messing about with a DIY signal meter.

Thanks in advance. Email sengmand @ hotmail.com

(Please answer directly by email, DigameXtra cannot post info regarding this info request.)

Recommendations – Paypal Warning
When it comes to using your debit card on PayPal, whether you are entitled to chargeback protection depends on how you make the purchase.

If you load  money using the card into your PayPal account, you won’t be covered by Chargeback as it is not considered a card transaction.

But if there’s no money loaded in your PayPal account and you use your card directly to make a payment through PayPal, your purchase should apply for Chargeback cover.

To avoid any grey area, you should empty your PayPal account before making a purchase to make it clear how the payment was made.

Recommendation – Plumber

We recently used the services of Oscar Pinazo Linan, the plumber from Torrox to remove an old shower tray and install a new  tray and also a dishwasher.

We would highly recommend Oscar, he speaks very good English, is very punctual and communicates through What’s app.

His workmanship is excellent and his pricing is fair.

We are very pleased with his work.

Recommendation – Women’s Health Checks

Regarding Sandra’s question for Women’s Health Checks I use Mar y Salud in El Morche as they are fantastic and offer a wide range of services.


For our family’s  teeth we use  Nete at Denta Danes in Maro as she, and the team, are excellent.


Hope that helps. Elon



Recommendation – Airport Parking

Just a note to say I used the new dropping off facilities at the airport on Thursday and it was so easy. You drive into car park a girl on the barrier gets a ticket for you.

Go and park up drop your passengers off, go to Salida put ticket in and drive out, no problem.

In fact there were so many parking spots it was hard to decide where to park, Mind you it was 08.20 in the morning.
Kind regards,

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
