Services Available- Solution for Electricity supply problem

  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.  Call or email for no obligation quote and more information:  Oscar Pinazo  Torrox   605 59 00 11 (Also WhatsApp)              reparacionespinazo at gmail dot com

What’s on –Red Cross-Update on tourist train trip and other activities   The Red Cross in Spain (La Cruz Roja Española) in collaboration with the Association for the Promotion of Tourism in Axarquia (APTA) booked the tourist train that runs around Vélez-Málaga plus an English-speaking guide in October and the 40 places were advertised via print and social media. There was an overwhelming interest and APTA kindly offered another two trips but these were also ‘overbooked’ within days of the initial announcement. The three trips that were held were very successful (notwithstanding a mechanical breakdown and a minor collision with another vehicle) but regrettably more than 80 people who had applied were unable to enjoy the trip and remain on a ‘reserve list’.   A meeting is due to be held with APTA in the New Year to discuss the possible provision of similar train trips in 2018 and if any are available to the Red Cross then priority will be given to those people already on the ‘reserve list’ with the list being closed to new applicants in the meantime.  If sufficient additional places become available then these will be opened up to new applicants with details announced via social media. There will, hopefully, be a range of programmes, workshops and cultural activities for English-speakers in 2018 and further announcements will be made via print and social media in due course.   In the meantime, if anyone wants more information about the work of the Red Cross and the support available or is interested in becoming a volunteer please contact the local office.
