Don’t Waste Food !

As its the season for tourists and house changeovers in Digameland, this is a plea for you not to throw good food out. At our dog refuge Tail Torrox, we have 4 live in volunteers to feed. Any left over food will be very gratefully received as will any excesses you are given from neighbours or have grown in the garden.

This will help to keep our food costs down which means more money for the ever increasing numbers of dogs we are trying to rehome.

The refuge is situated on the left as you approach Torrox costa next to Mambo graffiti sign and 200 m before Lidl. You can park there too.

For any queries please call Gill 633405560.

Thanks and lets help reduce food waste

Services Available – Swimming Pool Care

This submission is a request for information from all swimming pool owners and managers of rental properties with swimming pools.

Are there any subscribers who are finding it difficult to get the services of a swimming pool technician or maintenance company?

I have been looking for employment with a pool company and as yet have been unable to find any openings. My alternative option would be to set up on my own and relocate, if necessary, to an area where it is evident there may be a shortage of such a service.

Any information that could help me make an informed decision would be a great help and be received with much appreciation.

I have never operated my own business before but have over 30 years experience managing swimming pools and leisure centres , so hopefully, if the need is there, I will be able to provide a high quality service to those that are in need.

I am fully qualified and can provide copies of relevant certification, if required.

With thanks to everyone in advance,

Kind regards,

Mike Wasling,

Venta Baja.

Recommendation Needed – Car Rental

Car rental advice please!  We normally drive from the UK to Competa but thought we might try flying again.  We’ve been a bit put off by the stories over the years of alleged rip-offs – high rental costs, fuel tank fills, insurance, huge deposits etc.  I know there have been a lot of recommendations and advice in the past in Digame, so I wonder whether anyone can help me by recommending their favourite company for us to use in the next couple of weeks?  I would be so grateful.  Thanks, Lynda

Recommendation – Car Valeting Service

Another recommendation for Warren Phillips and his car valet service. He took my very tatty looking car away and returned it the next day looking fantastic! It is now super shiny and looking like new.

Warren can be contacted on 618 346 098



Recommendation for Steven Rowle Animal Practice

Dear Digamites and Animal Lovers

I recently engaged Steven Rowle to help me with our two dogs. They were both rescue dogs and taken on within a short time of each other. They quickly joined together with really bad behaviour. Chico became very aggressive towards other dogs and sometimes people and Lolita could be quite destructive in the home and disobedient. My husband and I had tried everything  to change these patterns with little success and life was becoming quite miserable at times.

I was initially a bit sceptical, but Chico, I discovered from Steven, was carrying a lot of fear and unhappiness from his former life and Lolita was quite depressed. But, Hey Presto! they are now the total opposite. After Stevens visits I watched the change take place each week. Its all about energy, there’s and ours I believe. We had to change the way we looked at things and take on a new rule book but it was all worth it! He even gave us a personnalised aftercare pack for us to refer to.
