CAS Scruffs Dog Show 2018: Just a quick reminder that CAS Scruffs Dog Show 2018 that was postponed last Sunday due to the weather warnings has been rescheduled to Sunday, 21st October, at the same time and in the same place. This was always advertised as the fallback date for this event in case of bad weather. As it is held jointly with Nerja Town Hall, who provide staff as well as the facilities, we have to honour this date. Apologies to the people who’ve been inconvenienced by the postponement and we look forward to welcoming those who are still able to support our event despite the date change. There may now be a place available for anyone who wasn’t able to have a stall last Sunday but would still like one. Fiona ; found 33 @ gmail. com (no spaces)

Making doctors appointment: Has anyone managed to navigate the new system for making appointments in the Spanish healthcare system? It’s recently changed and I’m going round in circles. Any easy 1/2/3 instruction would be very welcome! Thanks in advance. Valerie. Torrox; vjfahey0 @ gmail.com (no spaces, the “0” in the address before the “@” is a zero) (Also forward replies to DigameXtra please. -Ed.)

Taxi from Airport: Advice to all who call for a taxi at Malaga Airport. The meter is only half the charge, the driver will refer to a chart stuck to the rear side window which allows him to nearly double the meter display. The chart is on a green background with small print and is legal. Confirm the final fare before. Tony, Nerja (no replies to me please) sjc 2714 @ gmail. com
