Lost & Found

Found Sunglasses: On the track to Acebuchal on 10th May at about 0930 I was walking with my friend and stopped and chatted to a cyclist who had unfortunately fallen off his bike at the river crossing. He carried on towards the helipad. When we got to the river we found some wet sunglasses! If this was you and you’d like them back please contact Rose 0044 7817501615 or rose4215jubilado@gmail.com ; Torrox/Competa campo near helipad.

Services Offered/Wanted

Wanted: Information wanted on NHS pensions/Hacienda. Is there anyone in digameland who gets an NHS pension paid not by the local authority but the Paymaster General? As I understand the double taxation agreement, this is not counted as a government pension, and therefore is taxed in Spain not the UK (unlike civil service pensions, teachers pensions and the like). However the HMRC is telling me this is not true, anyone have any information to share on this? In confidence, of course. Thanks for your help – Wendy (Sedella), answers to wendy.sedella@hotmail.com (corrected email this time. -Ed.)
