Walking Friend Needed….       I am an almost blind 71 year old male. Having recently moved to Torrox Costa from the Campo .                                                              I have difficulty with navigation around my new environment.
Maybe someone would like to accompany me occasionally for an hour’s  walk (more or less) and then we both get some exercise.
If you are interested in joining me and get some fresh air please contact me by  e-mail   grahamhgodley at gmail dot com.

Services Needed –Installation of the Most effective water filtration system available        I’ve grown tired of lugging home huge bottles of water from the market. I’d like to install a good water filtration system in my home in La Herradura. Looking to kill any bacteria and filter out all heavy metals, pesticides etc. Not sure if reverse osmosis is the best for this purpose.                                              If anyone can recommend a company that does this work and what the likely cost, I’d be most grateful.    Please contact me at michellerabin at gmail                                  As always, I’m grateful for the suggestions/advice from this terrific group.


Services Required –Swimming Pools in Puente Don Manuel Area              Does anyone have any information at all on indoor swimming pools in the Puente Don Manuel area? I appreciate that I will have to travel but it would be helpful to know where they are and any relevant details such as access times and prices. Many thanks for any information received.    Mike Wasling, Puente Don Manuel                  Email – michael dot wasling @ gmail dot com


Recommendations Needed- I would like to install an electric awning                      Is it possible to buy these ready made, if not can some one recommend a Company please ?  Thank you     mauricemulvihill @ gmail.com
