What’s On

Course, Dealing with Emergenices: Some people move here and assume that everything will be the same when it comes ro an emergency.It isn’t because the population is too thin distributed for the system that wrks in the UK. Some people live up a mountain or in the campo and never even think of how a fire engine would reach them. It doesn’t matter until it all goes wrong Patronus Rescue International Ltd is offering a two day course in first aid, fire safety, healthy lifestyle, home security and how to deal with a road accident. It costs €65 and includes lunch and coffee breaks. Dates are 23rd & 24th July and 22nd & 23rd October at Restaurante Venta La Parra, Alcaucin
