Reference – Feeding Feral Cats in La Rabita    I hope the person requesting help to feed her feral cats in the Rabita was not referring to the cats that hang around the bins by the main entrance to the Rabita.  I appreciate there are many views on this but apart from being against Town hall by-laws to feed them,  the cats have multiplied since being “fostered”over the years and now are a menace to the those living nearby including ourselves.  Neuter/ Spay and feed them yes, but just feeding them because you feel sorry for them only makes a bigger problem for the future generations of cats and campo residents. Thank You.  Esther&Ken (Residents of La Rabita)

Recommendation-Arkwrights English Shop in Puente Don Manuel          I just want to let people know about Arkwrights English shop in Puente don Manuel. It changed hands about 6 or so months ago and the two Spanish guys that own it now are doing a fantastic job of running it, they have introduced lots more stock including wines and beers and English beers too and all at very good prices.   I am not in any way associated with the business I just want to make  people aware of this.

Next up will be Andalusian Ceili Bandits, led by French piper Jerome Hippolyte who will play a selection of Irish and Galician music on a variety of acoustic instruments. They consist of Jerome on bagpipes and whistles, Sorrel from the UK on accordion and vocals, John from Ireland on fiddle and guitar and Meigan, who is from Wales and is the singer.  Spanish duo Betty Loop comprising of Erika Vinylo and Angel Ariza perform next, and as their name suggests Angel is a master of the loop machine both for percussion and guitar (made famous by Ed Sheeran) and Erika plays ukulele and is the lead singer.   Jukebox Bandits and friends will round the night off with a set of music to dance to kicking off with a selection of Rolling Stones songs sung by local Dutchman Kees de Leeuw (with all the actions!).   This unique multi-cultural night of music had been a huge success in previous years, please come along and make sure it is just as successful again this year.  Please gives generously to our local charity, Action for Animals to help our furry friends in need.   For Youtube footage previous concerts, key in “Canillas de Albaida Multicultural night”.    Tables may be available at La Plaza Restaurant, call 952 553254/609 167127
