Boxer Dog Needs a Home Please

Young Male Boxer for Good Home
We recently found this male boxer in town, he is about 1 year old, lovely nature, does not bark at all, very friendly and affectionate. We cannot keep him because we already have two Huskies. Please help to find a good home for him. For more information call us: 958 612 412 Rena and Alex Thank you.

New 41 Club Chairman has many new ideas  

Martin Urban from Astria has become the new Chairman of 41 Club Nerja (Ex Round Tablers).  We have already had a talk on walks around Frigiliana, an evening with a horse whisperer. a boat cruise around the bay at Calata and three Munch Bunches.  Our Club has 47 members from 10 different Counrties and is truly International.  Two new members have joined in the last two weeks.  We meet twice per month.  On the first Thursday we take our ladies out for our Munch Bunch where we visit different restaurants for a Menu del Dia.  On the third Thursday we have our ‘Normal’ meeting – whatever that is and have a speaker or an outing to visit someone such as the ‘Horse Whisperer’ who was excellent.  Martin has decided to involve the ladies at some of these meetings.  We have an annual meeting of all of the 41 Clubs on the Iberian Cluster in October and this year 18 couples are going to Calpe 41 Club for a three day event.A few weeks ago we twinned with Lichfield 41 Club and a gang of us visited them as well as the National Memorial Arboretum where Round Table and 41 Club have a memorial along with Ladies Circle and Tangent. We are always looking for new members even if they only spend a few weeks in Spain per year.  Please look at us on 41clubnerja.org or ring Alfie on 626998626 Alfie Fornear
