Warning re Vehicles

Just feel that your readers should be aware that a car not taxed or Mot’d in it’s country of registration is illegal to drive here, be it English, German, French or the rest. It might be only 260€ but it is still illegal and not alone. If stopped the Guardia will take it away and crush it.

(Editor writes – many thanks John for the info & warning. Jane)


Another great big THANk YOU shout out to John Walker

( from Torrox)who not only donated a roll of felt for our shed at APA dog shelter in Nerja .. he also came and fitted it with the help of Kevin (Val Thom) from APA… all free of charge

Thank You to All

I would like to say thank you to everyone who attended the Service of Life for my Husband Charles Brasier on the 11th August.   Roselle and Tomas from Angles Rest organised and carried out the Service exactly as Charles wanted.  Your Condolences were very much appreciated as were the many cards of sympathy we have received.

Thank you also to the friends who came to the after Service get together.  Charles’s sisters June and Jean were very pleased that although the Service was not in England, he had a good send off. Gina Brasier
