Services Available-Changes at Todo Papel, Competa

Todo Papel – important announcement

After 12 years it is with regret that we have to announce that we will be stopping the sale of newspapers and magazines. The last day of sales will be Saturday 2nd September.

Many factors have contributed to this decision primarily declining sales due to changes in distribution of a large number of publications earlier this year, technology and how individuals access their news and increasing costs.  Unfortunately, it is no longer financially viable to offer this service.

We will continue to stock and sell our other core items such as greetings cards,  second hand books and of course our PO Box and parcel receiving services.  We are also very excited to be introducing a new product range which will take the place of newspapers – more over the next couple of weeks.

Kind Regards

Alick and Debbie

Recommendation- Jeff of Pooltec

We have been rescued once again by Jeff of Pooltec.

Our pool turned completely green with algae, probably after a visit from two young grandsons who swan almost continuously for three weeks. They were rather well protected with sunscreen which was a contributing factor to the algae.

After a visit from Jeff and some excellent advice, the pool is now glass like and very tempting in this heat.

I can really recommend this extremely helpful chap.
