Advice Please  Re 5 year Grandson
Between 19th and 26 th December my 5 year old grandson will staying for Christmas in Torrox Costa with Grandmother . Please has anyone any ideas of how he can be entertained so he has a good time ? It s especially worrying if the weather is bad and we can’t play football on the beach !!!!!
It would be nice if he could maybe meet up with other children from different backgrounds .He also loves animals   Maybe other grandparents have a similar dilemma and would be interested in recommendations .
It’s at times like this that I really miss the Nerja Donkey Sanctuary !
Cheers.   Judy        judyannspain at yahoodot com

Saturday 16th December: The organic and handicraft Christmas Market in Benajarafe is at Garden Centre Florymar this Saturday 16th December from 10:00h to 17:00h. Run by members of ECA (Eco Axarquia), a registered environmental conservation organisation, you’ll find lots of organic food stalls, including vegan and raw foods, a welcoming cafe and some exciting, original ideas for timely gifts from the many and varied handicraft stalls. There’ll be live music from Gram Russell and the Cantaremos Barbershop Choir and, when they’re not playing and singing, some background Christmas music to set the seasonal mood. Of course there will be the usual workshops and children’s activities and the fabulous garden centre to wander around.                                         Story telling with Berta La Despierta is at 12:00h followed by an ongoing art corner from 12:30h onwards. A recycled art workshop also begins at 12:30h as does face- painting fun. In addition there’ll be a demonstration of ceramic painting throughout the day.   The spectacular venue facing the beach and sea at Florymar Garden Centre is easy to find on the right hand side of the N-340 coast road coming out of Benajarafe from the Torre del Mar direction, immediately past a Cepsol fuel station. Access is excellent, coming from the east (Nerja, Torrox, Torre Del Mar etc.) or the west (Rincón de la Victoria, Malaga City etc.) along the N-340 or the A7 Mediterranean Motorway.
