Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group meets every first Tuesday of the month at El Parquesol restaurant in El Morche at 11am. We are a friendly and enthusiastic group of people who are dedicated to learning about the History of Spain. Members themselves are encouraged to give talks on a particular area of History which they enjoy. Talks can be about a particular area of history an historical event or a person; a work of art or literature. Members are also encouraged to participate and help in the running of the group as well as giving talks. We also go on trips to places of historical interest but which are easy to get to by bus or by car however for the future I will be looking at Historical sites further afield which would require an over night stay. Our last trip was to the museum in Velez Malaga. Well worth the effort. Everything was in English as well as Spanish and the display ranged from prehistory, the Phoencians and Romans artifacats to modern times. Also many of the items were from lots of different sites in and around the area of Torrox. This month we have a talk on the Inquisition and also the second part of a series of talks on the Romans. If you would like to join then please come along and meet us on the 5th of June at 11am
or email Patricia (Nerja) at: patricianerja @ hotmail .com. Please close gaps.

Car trade-in advice wanted: We are contemplating changing our car.We currently have a 10 year old Peugot 308. It has done 55,000 miles.  It is right hand drive.When we imported it into Spain it was necessary to have complete(new) front & rear lights;to comply with Spain regs. We have,however, kept the original lights in case of the car being returned to UK. We haven’t a clue where that leaves us in terms of selling or trading in the vehicle. Could anyone offer any advice please?
Contact John ( Torrox Costa).on: jon 108 @ hotmail.co.uk ( close spaces). Many thanks all.
