Condolences: Many of you have heard the heartbreaking news that my dear friend Linda Barlow died on Thursday after a short battle with cancer…. Johnny Q and Linda have been in Torrox for many years and many will remember them both from their bar Johnny Q’s which they retired from last year…. Johnny is heartbroken as is so many who knew and loved her…. both Linda and Johnny’s passion is music so Johnny feels the most fitting way to celebrate Linda’s life and mourn her sudden passing is to hold a memorial evening. This will be held at Bea’s postamt in Torrox Costa on Tuesday 17th April from 8pm… if any musicians who have played with Johnny over the years would like to come and support Johnny music starts at 9pm.. anyone who would like come and pay their respects to a very special lady are very welcome…let’s give Linda a send off she deserves… the next few months will be very long and tough for Johnny but with the support of his friends I know he will get through it…. also for anybody would like to make a donation to help ease the strain for Johnny through this very tough time there will be a donation box on the night….thank you for your support regards. Joanne Dobinson

Health Care: I recently had a fall and cut my forehead. As a result, I had to visit the Health Centre in Torrox Pueblo to have it stitched. The attention I received there was phenomenal ! The reception staff, nursing care, cleanliness and the efficiency of everyone. Appointments were made for me to return on a daily basis to check the wound, to change the dressings and also to register me with the doctor who checked me out to make sure there was no concussion or complications. The seven stitches have now been removed and the scar is barely visible. Grateful thanks to all of the wonderful staff there. Wm. Blackledge, Torrox, lythamman@hotmail.com
