Lost iPhone on Tuesday in Competa or Canillas de Albaida
Our old iPhone 4, black, has gone walkabout, getting itself lost somewhere between driving from our house in Canillas de Albaida at 13.45 on Tuesday (December 19th), parking the car in Competa main car park (Plaza Axarquia) and walking from there via Plaza Almijara to the El Pampano restaurant at Plaza Vendimia. And you thought iPhones couldn’t walk! Any information on sightings gratefully received on 952 55 33 88 (landline) or text to +45 4018 6730 or email: lyn(dot)harrison(at)insightwind.com

Correction to Request in the previous Digamextra.Small Parcel  Delivery Needed Please – A parcel must come FROM England to Spain- Should read…   Services Needed-Small Parcel to go From England to Spain I have a small parcel, 33cm x 17cm x17cm, weighing 1.15 kilos which I would like transported to Arkwrights in Punte don Manuel for collection by a friend.  I live in Kent, near Sevenoaks.

Long Term Rental Needed-                                                                                               We’ve put the following onto Facebook pages for accommodation etc from everywhere from Motril to Rincón and everywhere in between, but had no response. Can anyone help? We do have specific requirements.                                      Our current rental contract ends in early March.   After Christmas, we shall be looking for a new home to rent in order to move at the beginning of February/March. We shall be downsizing in terms of space and cost, so we’ll be looking for a 2-3 bedroom house (or 2 beds and study area), probably in the campo, with a good-sized fitted kitchen as we both enjoy cooking. A pool isn’t necessary, but a/c would be appreciated – if not fitted now, then at least to sitting room and master bedroom, by next June. A fenced garden is important as we have 2 medium-sized dogs. We’re very open to location, but having lived in Competa and negotiated the road frequently, we’re no longer interested in living there.                               *Maximum* budget is €600, and we’re looking for a really long term rental, so if you’re hoping to sell your house soon, it wouldn’t be suitable for us.                            Please contact me if you know of anywhere.  Michael advertiser @ outlook . es (remove spaces)


Thanks from Nerja Branch Royal British Legion                                                      We would like to thank Ian from the Chapel Bar in Nerja who hosted Christmas  carols in the Bar last Sunday. The event raised 369 euros proceeds from the wonderful raffle that took place , Our thanks also go to everyone who donated prizes and who came along to support the venue and the Royal British Legion, without this support we, at the British Legion, would not be able to help our lads and lasses . Well done everyone. Dorothy Allen Poppy Appeal organizer Nerja
