Archez – Dead kittens

So upset over the brutal killing of those tiny kittens. Can anyone give some indication as to who did this as whoever is responsible needs to be punished.

As your letter said we are in the 21st century and this is totally out of order and they may do it again.

At the moment I am looking after 3 kittens that are adorable.

It breaks my heart to read your letter as they are so trusting to humans and expect to be cared for.. not treated like this.

Services Needed

I have recently been working in a restaurant and had from the outset asked for a contract as I know the consequences of not having one. I was constantly being fobbed off when ever I asked for it.

Also- after 3 months of work asked to be paid and was told in no uncertain terms to go.

They stated they had no money to pay me yet the restaurant was always busy and I was working 11-12 hours a day. If anyone can help and get more detail please call me on 622706615.

Thank you Mark


Wanted- News of Missing Repairman…..
Sometime in May, we noticed a recommendation on DigamExtra by a person called Diana, for an expert kitchen and bathroom fitter. We called him, he came and spent three hours with us detailing how we would redo our kitchen. He started work beginning of June and did such a good job, we had him do other jobs throughout the house up until last Thursday.

Last Thursday, 27 July, we shook hands and said: “See you tomorrow.”

He never showed up and has not answered the phone since then; it either rings endlessly or we get a message indicating that his line is not currently available, can we call back later.

He had always answered his phone, even on Sunday, so we are worried.

His name is Wayne Newton and lives with his wife and daughter in a townhouse in Frigiliana, drives a van and sometimes an Audi.

If anyone knows what if anything has happened to Wayne, please let us know at: 634351754 or puchkauzon1 @ gmail.com (no spaces)

Thank you in advance,

Paul and Veronique

Services Wanted- Transport

I need to send a small box weighing approx 10 kilos and measuring 20 x 26 x 40 (8″ x 10″ x 15″) to UK, to arrive by the end of August. The contents are all in glass jars so I want them to be “handled” as opposed to being “thrown”. After many hours of searching, I decided that Digamextra readers would have the answer through their own experiences! Can anyone make a recommendation please?

Is there a reliable courier company depot (DHL or similar) )in the Malaga area?

Does anyone do independent delivery trips of small packages to UK?

Is anyone driving back to UK in the near future, with space to spare/sell? Please email me on anne1146 at outlook dot com (no spaces etc.)

Sincere thanks in advance to anyone with info. Anne (Location: Arenas de Velez)

Recommendation- Torre del Mar Airshow

I’d like to reiterate what Rita said about driving/parking for the Torre del Mar Air show; a little planning with something Google Maps, and it shouldn’t be difficult or stressful. There’s acres (OK hectares) of parking to the west of town, and it was well organised.

The air show is now a world-class event, and everyone involved should be proud. The only quibble I had was that I was unable to find the timetable of events on the official website.

And I must add thanks to the skills of the pilots, who put on a fantastic display… mark it in your diaries for 2018!


Recommendation Needed – Gas Oven Repairer
