Come along and enjoy a morning browsing and picking up a few bargains at this well established monthly market, which attracts visitors from far and near. A super location. The restaurant has shaded terraces overlooking the lake and many customers sit and enjoy a coffee or a tapa and a drink and catch up with friends and acquaintances for a chat. Many even stay and choose lunch from the varied menu available.  Bar is open from 9.30am serving coffee/drinks/food.
Please note: If the market has to be cancelled at short notice, due to bad weather, it will automatically be re-scheduled for the following Sunday. Forward reminder: As always, there is no car boot/market in August. For further info please contact Sandy (Vinuela) on 619 471 301

Services Wanted/Offered

Computers- DoctorLaptop’s July Specials: The heat is upon us, and that is bad news for your computer. Keep yours running cool by scheduling your annual maintenance servicing now. If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, update Windows + all drivers + programs, install free ransomware protection, optimize your settings for fastest overall performance and clean your fan and cooling channel. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete. €50.
Special deals and free shopper assistance!
1. Bring in two computers for maintenance service and get 20% off, €80 for the pair.
2. Free shopper assistance, provide me your requirements and I will check all the local or UK stores for your best options.
3. Backups. Hard disks hate the heat. What would you lose if your hard disk crashed, irreplaceable documents, pics, vids or an extensive music collection? Do you have a backup copy of Windows should you need to replace your hard disk? My backup service makes a clone copy of your entire hard disk onto an external USB hard disk. This backup provides you with access to all your data, plus a copy of your full operating system exactly as it is at the time I do the job. Should your hard disk fail and require replacement, the backup can be re-cloned onto a new hard disk, no need to setup Windows all over again, no need to reinstall programs or drivers or files. I can supply a new 1000Gb external hard disk and do the clone backup for €100. Computers with a hard drive larger than 1000Gb add €40.
*These specials end August 1st, 2018.
