I had my wallet stolen today whilst walking around Nerja market.
I had €150 taken plus cards which I have cancelled.
If anyone finds a black wallet with a driving licence & NIE card still inside would you kindly contact Tim Willcox on 07860346636.
Whoever took it tried to use the card at Tor del Mare within an hour of it being taken but luckily it was declined.
I am always so careful, so beware.

Too much wine and sun I guess but has anyone found some large sunglasses with a scratch on right lens and RALPH written on the arms? Also light beige marks and spencer lightweight cardigan? Torrox Costa or Torrox village

Services Available- Interpreter
If you need to see a doctor, or go to the hospital in the near future, you will need to take an interpreter with you. Most doctors speak a little English but you can’t rely on it, and they do prefer to have an interpreter there.
It saves them time. The risk of not being able to describe your symptoms or misunderstanding what is said to you, is too great to take a chance.
I was an interpreter/volunteer in the hospital for fifteen years.
So I have the Inside knowledge to get you where you need to go, to see the doctor you need and to help you with any paperwork necessary.
I go to most centros de salud, to clinics and hospitals in Malaga too.
I don’t charge by the hour. It’s a flat reasonable fee.
It can Include my collecting you and taken you back.
Call me. I’m always on the end of the phone, 24/7

Trip to Orgiva Tea Gardens Friday 19th May
The Orgiva Tea Garden has evolved over the last ten years from a barren patch of land with waist high weeds into a beautiful tranquil garden split over three very different levels and covering about 5000 sq m.
The philosophy with regards to the planting has been to concentrate mainly on Mediterranean plants with help from shade-providing trees and also to take into account our animals as many have free range over the whole garden.
English Teas, refreshments, homemade sandwiches, soups and delicious cakes (ice cream in the summer) are available plus our shop sells local crafts and fresh produce. And of course there is a selection of plants for sale in the garden nursery section.
With a quiz and games for the children, the menagerie of animals as well, the garden can be enjoyed by the whole family and by all ages.

Price? €25pp includes coach fare, entry to the gardens, lunch and drivers gratuity
Ronda Romantica Feria Saturday 27th May
During the three day festivities, locals and visitors are taken on a voyage of discovery to 19th century Spain, a time of bandits, muleteers and romantic travellers.
Hundreds of locals from Ronda and the surrounding towns and villages participate in this unique recreation of 19th century life in this stunning part of Andalucia.
Dressed in typical clothes and garments of the time, these colourful characters take part in a historical street parade and representations of different historic events. The sound and smell of gunpowder, artisans markets and equestrian exhibitions are just some of experiences enjoyed by visitors during the celebrations.
The locals also spend hours decorating the streets and shop windows of the city with colourful and eye-catching flowers, plants and banners, transforming Ronda into the most romantic of destinations.
Another of the unquestionable stars of the event are the horses which are also dressed in stunning attire, typical of the 19th century, and their elegant riders also wearing their traditional garments.
For more information on any of our trips or events call Gail on 951067723, email@example.com or catch us on the web at www.phoenixsocialclub.co.uk. The Phoenix club is a registered charitable association raising funds for 3 local charities and SSAFA in the UK. We meet every Tuesday between 12 and 2 at Bar La Vega in Torre del Mar and you can book or pay from 12.15 onwards. Do pop in and meet us.
