Wanted – Long Term Flat Rental: Last year, a couple from Edinburgh rented our flat in Torrox Costa from May to November. Suffice to say they were model tenants; paid punctually and looked after the flat. As our flat is not available, we offered to help them find somewhere. They are seeking to rent a 2 bedroom flat, hopefully with communal pool, in the El Morche, Torrox Costa and Peñoncillo area for 6 months, from 29th May 2018 to end November 2018. They are looking to pay up to €800 pcm for the right property. If you have, or know of such a place, then please email (deleted disallowed 3rd party email address) or myself on raycraig@live.com ; Ray Craig 608568602


Computers: My computer was running extremely slow & sluggish. Took it in to Dr. Laptop. Got it back the next day. It is now running at an excellent speed. He cleaned out lots of unnecessary programmes, got rid of old security system and put in a new free one. We are very pleased. Andrew, Sayalonga. andrewsmajor53 @ gmail.com
