U.K. Currency Deadlines Approaching     Just a thought but much in the news in the UK is the withdrawal of the old round £1 coins this week and the fact that there are still over 120 million old fivers still out there somewhere you have until spring next year to get rid of your old £10 pound notes but the old £5 needs to go back to the bank of England for a refund. Just as an afterthought…. if you cant be bothered to do anything about the odd £20 you have kicking around in the bottom of a drawer, I feel sure the local animal charities will take them of your hands.   regards Haydn     UK Pound coins….     On behalf of Pippa’s Pawprints, we are looking to relieve you of any “old” British £1.00 coins. You might have one (or some stashed away somewhere). They will soon be illegal tender and being a considerate and helpful organisation, we will be delighted to help you de clutter by picking up any you may have lying around!  Seriously, it would help enormously and it’s no trouble to come and collect. Thank you very much. Give me a shout. Gracias. 622 574 164


Services Available – English for Spanish Children       Hello my name is Eva and I have started doing an English club where I help Spanish kids learn English with fun and exciting activities like singing and dancing and games. I also went to a Spanish school when I was younger so I can understand Spanish and speak it too! I charge 5 euros an hour. I do each sessions in groups of 6 or less. I am based in Caleta de Velez. If interested please feel free to call 651 122 585.


Services Needed-Spanish Teacher    I am looking for a teacher who can provide the above for 1 maybe 2 hours per week, must also speak good English. I live in Torrox Pueblo, but can travel. I am keen to learn and improve my Spanish but want to take it slowly so I can gain maximum benefit, and enjoy it. Don’t want a high pressured class.   I am a retired gentleman, perhaps a trial of a few lessons to see if it works for both parties. Please contact Bob with a few details about yourself and including your hourly rate to:  Darcymay1@icloud.com
