Services Needed-Cushion Covers Made

I am looking for someone in the Nerja/Frigiliana area who could make some cushion covers for me I brought some material from the UK.

The covers would be 43cm square. Zip 34cm and piped edging. The material should be enough for 4 cushions.
Phone Pat. 620626127 or leave a message


Recommendation-Airport Taxi Services

I saw a recent post in Digamextra with a horror story of smoke-filled and unreliable taxis, etc.

For three years now we have been using PCB Tours:

Tel: +34 654 35 88 00

Their cars are always spotless, smoke-free, punctual and the owner, Paul, prides himself on providing a high quality service. All drivers are English speakers.

Two days ago we arrived at Malaga an hour late, handicapped wife parked on runway outside empty airplane (no room on the handicap transfer bus), cheated by car-hire (as usual) and needed to get home. A simple call to Paul and he had one of his drivers meet us at the airport within 1/2 hour and took us all the way home, in El-campo (where taxi drivers usually refuse to go).

100% recommendation for Paul and his taxi / transfer service. They ARE the best.

What’s On Real Flemish barbecue in Torrox-Costa

Saturday 2 September

Dear lovers of good food,
It was in 2001 when I was invited to a ¨real Flemish barbecue¨ in a small village west of Brussels for the first time. I was sure that they could not beat the Americans or the Argentinians. However, I was more than surprised and since then convinced that the Belgian people like the Americans and Argentinians know how to prepare meat on a fire!

And imagine all this meat combined with their famous Belgian beers like Leffe, Affligem, Kriek…
On Saturday 2 September you will have the chance to participate in a real Flemish barbecue at Happy Days in Torrox-Costa.

All you can eat at a price of 16 Euros per person. A variety of meats, fish, salads and potatoes.

If interested please do go along the restaurant and put your name on the list. They are open from 4pm until at least 11pm.
Location: corner of Avenida de Europa and paseo marítimo (Bloque 82 Centro Internacional)
Contact phone number for enquiries: 645 439 914
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Restaurant-Happy-Days-313649202397941/
A real cosy corner where people of all nationalities have been meeting up since they started last July!
