Nerja Sea – Pollution ? Responses

I see in Saturday’s Digamextra,  that the Nerja sewage is still around – that is what happens when you s*** in the sea, despite all the plans for treatment and ‘Blue Flag’ beaches.  Let’s be realistic.  It is never safe to discharge raw sewage into the sea and lame excuses like ‘broken pipes’ won’t protect you.   You may be interested to see my casual little film from 2011 – nothing has changed and if you must venture in keep your mouth closed !

Nerja – Polluted sea





Volunteer Dog Walkers Needed

APA Nerja are desperately seeking foster carers and walkers for our shelter dogs
At present we have over 50 dogs in the shelter… 10 of them are small puppies and really should be in foster care.. however we do what we can for them
Mostly we need people who are willing  to walk a dog
Holiday makers or residents it doesn’t matter
Our group walks are starting at 8.30 due to the heat but you would just need to come with us once or twice and then can walk whatever time you like between 8.30 and 1…
We walk down to Playazo and back to shelter… takes about an hour..
Because of the lack of walkers we have been going back with one lot and taking another to give them all at least one walk a week … but it’s getting too hot now after about 10.30
If anyone is interested at all please contact me, Sue….
gipsy 48@ yahoo . Com

Thank you on behalf of the doggies!




To all dog owners
Please , if you are walking your dog in town or pueblo, think of their paws.
YOU would not be able to walk barefoot on the sweltering pavements, neither can they .
And certainly, if you’re going to the beach, the sand is oven-hot.

Pick your pooch up, please.



Services Required – Water Pump

I have just bought a Espa domestic water pump to replace my existing unit.
Too complicated for a DIY job, so plumber required for this small job.
We live half way along the Competa Torrox road.

What’s On – Please Give us More Time

I often see events advertised on Digame that are happening on the same day that Digame is published. I counted at least 5 such events in the last few days.

I’m not sure about other people, but my wife and I plan our activities a few days (or sometimes weeks) in advance. So, for us, it’s no use telling me about something that’s on today as I  probably have other plans.

Tony and Pam, Torrox Park

Wanted – Ladder

Does anyone have a 7 to 8 metre high ladder I may be able to borrow for a week please?

I’m happy to pay a reasonable hire charge if necessary.
I’m reluctant to buy one as I don’t have anywhere to store it, and have help from a friend from England to paint a couple of 5.5 metre high walls, that have been waiting a long time for attention.

We have use of a 3.5 metre ladder but this is way too short for these walls, and Spanish scaffold doesn’t fit into the tight patio space!

Thanks in advance.

Standardizing Ads for “Treatments” Advertised in DigameXtra

As of today, I will accept Ads for health professionals, therapies, medical treatments etc.etc. ONLY if the person concerned can provide a Licence Number to operate here in Spain in the text of the ad.

For Example:

This is perfect!
