Services Available – Cleaning Vehicles to High Quality                                    If you would like me to detail your car I will be happy to give you a free no obligation quote. For those who do not understand the terminology of “Detailer” it is someone who cleans/valets cars to a much higher level. I have invested a lot of money in very specialised tools to enable me to get car fabrics to represent as best as possible. The average car cleaner/valeter will not have these tools.  The results are better to look at immediately and means that your vehicles surfaces do not deteriorate in the future.  I can then apply protectants to this fabric similar to Scotch guard, which stops spillages etc from soaking into the fabric.  The whole detailing process is very involved and would be way too long to describe here. I will be happy to discuss it over the phone or when I come to quote you. Every car is different in what is required to correct it, so it is impossible to price without me seeing it. Hence why I do a free no obligation quote, which are always tailored to suit your requirements.    I work on all kinds of vehicles from the average to high end supercars. I tend to do more work on the average due to them being more common. You will not be without a vehicle if you do not have a second vehicle, as I can offer loan vehicles whilst your vehicle is undergoing the transformation process. Its expensive to replace cars here, so by spending a little with me I can protect your car from sun deterioration or restore it.    Call me today to arrange a free visit and no obligation quote. 618 346 098 Warren.   (Much more information is available detailing all the work done.  Call the Expert.)

What’s on – The Nerja Players – The Doctor’s Dilemma

On Tuesday 6th February, The Nerja Players will entertain you with a rehearsed reading of a play by George Bernard Shaw “The Doctor’s Dilemma”, Abridged, Adapted and Directed by Ian Mortimer.  The dilemma facing the doctor is that he has only one place available in his special course of treatment for tuberculosis but two candidates. He has to decide which patient to save: a kindly, altruistic, poor medical colleague, dedicated to helping hundreds of the less well-off who come to him for the most inexpensive treatment, or an extremely gifted but also very unpleasant rogue, cheat, womaniser, bigamist and amoral young artist. It is even harder for the doctor to separate his motives for the decision of who shall live as he has fallen deeply in love with the artist’s wife. His problem is discussed amongst his fellow doctors, and – serious as it is – there is much humour to enjoy in the exchanges between them.   Although set in the first decade of the twentieth century, the play contains many allusions pertinent to the practice of medicine today: restricted access to some specialist treatments; performance of some unnecessary operations; disparity between treatments available to the very rich compared with those available to the very poor; the questionable wisdom of the public having easy access to drugs; the latent antipathy between some physicians and surgeons – also between doctors in public and private practice; how some medics use their skills to acquire considerable wealth while others dedicate themselves to benefit the poor and needy; the Press’s ghoulish interest in suffering and sorrow – it’s all there in “The Doctor’s Dilemma”.                 Doors open at 18.30 hours and the performance will start at 19:00 hours and will be held in the Nerja Bridge Club – entrance is through the blue doors at the top of Calle Castilla Perez 1, Nerja. We are between Salon de Juegos and Nerja Realty. Members: Free / Guests:€3  The Nerja Players welcome new members to participate in any capacity including performing, technical and general support.
