Reward of €500 for safe return of African Grey Parrot Cindy.  

She flew away on 14 October in the Pago Al Galera area between Nerja and Frigiliana, and was seen on 23rd of October in the San Rafael area of Frigiliana.    She is friendly and will approach people for food and water. When she goes to someone they should put her in a bathroom. Easy to clean when she poops! She’s used to that, on the top of the shower door, birds feel safe when high up. When on a hand, sometimes she will hold a finger in her beak for balance, she’s not a biter.   She can eat just about anything people eat. Fruit, peanuts, cooked food, she’s not fussy!  Any information greatly appreciated. Email cindy@techavion.com   UK Mobile text and whatsapp +44 7855 264621

What’s on- The Torrox Spanish History Group                                                        This is a new group which will begin in November of this year. One of the History Groups aims will be to gain a better understanding of the existing social, political, religious and economic conditions of the Spanish People and explore both the local History as well as on a much wider scale. The present is in fact the past! There will be short talks on particular periods or areas of history of members’ choosing and by studying History we hope we will begin to understand the present and provide an insight into the way Spain has evolved through history to the present day.    Also included in the new group will be Archaeology as well as Anthropology. New archaeological finds have been discovered up and down the coast East of Malaga and the local area abounds with historical sites which  are easy to get to using public transport and so we will enjoy short trips to historical sites to unravel the past and to learn more about Spain’s fascinating history.  If you would like to learn more about Spain’s History and also would like to take part in discussions and talks please come along and join the new Torrox Spanish History Group.  The idea is that we should meet in a friendly relaxed and informal atmosphere with like minded people and have fun as well as learning and sharing ideas and knowledge about Spanish History. Also to enjoy short trips to places of interest using local transport.  This group will be quite different from the Nerja Spanish History group and is not meant to imitate it in anyway. At our first meeting will discuss  where to hold the venue, the name of the group and how members would like to proceed as well as areas of particular interest to individual members.  Once I know how many people would like to join I will set a time and date for our first meeting so that we can all meet together and discuss how we would like to proceed.    I am experienced at organising groups having been a Guide for over 20 years; giving talks on Spanish History as well as being the Group leader of the successful Spanish History Group of the U3A for five years.   If you are interested then please email me at    patricianerja at hotmail dot com.
