  1. The notices were placed on the cabinets on Saturday 15th July.  I drove past the two lads who were carrying out this duty.
    The office seems to be sorting out it’s paperwork.  A form is issued requiring name of water share holder, number of shares held, contact details, parcela number and size of plot.
    I was surprised by the short timescale also.
  2. I did this procedure yesterday. The office was quite busy. I did the usual thing and took the kitchen sink.
    I was given a form to complete. Name, Address both postal and actual, NIE, number of shares, telephone number, e-mail address etc.
    I was asked for no proof of any of these things.
    The lady was not interested in any of my documents, including the original transfer document on purchase of house.
    This is the only evidence I have of any shares !
    When I produced the attached document her face illuminated and she copied all the details from that.
    I was then dismissed.
    I had the impression that something might turn up in the post sometime.
    I would suggest that the gent not returning until August makes a visit to the office a priority and makes sure he has his copy of the attached.
    I am lead to believe that the notices in some areas have been around a while but locally to me Manzano Alto and Barranco Plano they were put up two weekends ago.

  4. We have a blank form, re the water, that our friends got us from the office, if anyone wants it, we have only just bought our shares & it was only connected up last month, Gaileastwood at yahoo dot co dot UK



Bouquet for Birgit 

Can I forward flowers to Birgit ? Wildlife need people to take their dog on a lead when visiting places with wildlife. A dog park in Competa area would be nice, but until we have, use common sense.

Services- Physiotherapy & Osteopathy

My name is Alexander. I am the physiotherapist and osteopath of the International Wellness Center Manantia in Torrox Costa.

I would like to introduce a new manual pain therapy method in which I am specialised in. My personal philosophy is to provide a drug-free and non-surgical treatment to all my patients.

The Facial Distortion Model is a new and effective method of treating pain within the musculoskeletal system. Developed by the American doctor for emergency medicine and osteopathy, Steven Typaldos D.O., the method is enjoying ever increasing popularity. Recent scientific researches on the human connective tissues helps us to understand the importance of the fascia.¡
Up till now, many disorders and illnesses of the musculoskeletal system were difficult to treat and only healed very slowly but with FDM healing is greatly accelerated. This knowledge has been successfully employed to help many top sportsmen.

Due to FDM the description “chronic pain patient” takes on a completely new meaning. Up until now such patients were seen as being “incurable”. FDM sees persistent chronic pain in a completely new way.

The treatment includes a specific examination and manual mobilization, soft tissue massage and osteopathic techniques.

For more information about our pain therapy treatment at Manantia or to request an appointment: Call +34 648517092 or 951774819.

International Wellness Center Manantia Av. Garcia Peñalver (Av. del Faro) Blq. 76 Bajo 6, 29793 Torrox Costa (Málaga)
