Recommendation Needed Please – Swimming Pool

I am spending two weeks at Easter in El Morche with my grandchildren.

They love swimming and as it can be very windy on the beach at this time of year I wondered if anyone knew of a swimming pool in the area that they can use.

I know there is a public one in Torrox Pueblo but would like something nearer, say in a hotel.

Obviously willing to pay.

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
