New Women’s Group ? I have been wondering lately how many women there are in the Torrox /Nerja area who would like to get together to form new friendships.   A bit like a book club without the books.  An informal discussion of a topic we choose the week/month before – mothers and daughters/sons, trust, health, that sort of thing. The list is endless. Basically anything under the sun. A good gossip around a chosen topic.   No decision yet on where or how often we meet. I suppose that depends on numbers.   Let me know what you think. I think it’s something I’d enjoy. Hopefully somebody else does too.
Please email me on     lamcg59@googlemail.com

Services Available-Electricity Disruption 

Many times, when there is a storm (thunder/lightning), the supply will often trip out, it is always the main switch (RCD/RCB) “Interruptor diferencial in Spain” in the consumer unit that trips.  When you are away, you need a continuous service in fridge, alarm, swimming pool, that requires a continuous electricity supply.  In this case, it is possible to install a Self-reclosing RCCB to ensure service continuity.

What’s on- Book signing by local author  

John Hardy will be selling signed copies of all his books at the Axarquía Animal Rescue Dog Show and Market at Restaurante Puerto Niza,  Benajarafe   (Km 263 N340), this Sunday 22nd October from 11 am. For those who don’t know his work, these make great Christmas presents! Some are books of short stories of crime and mystery set in this part of Spain (‘Malaga Mysteries’), some set in the UK (‘East Side Stories’) and worldwide (‘Twisted Tales’). There are also versions in German and Spanish, useful as parallel texts if you are studying Spanish, as they are entertaining stories and easy to read. And lastly ‘Sedella’ is a history of a Spanish village from prehistoric times to the present day, illustrated with fictional tales. Hope to see you there.   For more information on all books, see www.johnhardybooks.com or email                                 wendy.sedella @ hotmail.com (no spaces)
