The Nerja Players: November 20th – The Rude Mechanicals – You can now reserve your tickets online. FB-Link — The Bard to be a bundle of laughs, but director, Joan Tarver, promises a hilarious experience with her adaptation of scenes from Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. A victorious Thesues is about to marry Hippolyta, defeated Queen of the Amazons. Feisty fairies bicker and plot and cause no end of trouble for the Rude Mechanicals – this band of singularly untalented amateurs – as they rehearse a play they hope to perform to celebrate the forth coming nuptials. Will rival factions reconcile their differences? Can Bottom the Weaver succeed in his bid for stardom? Come and enjoy the fun and frolics.

Dog Attack: I want to warn people walking their dogs around the Penoncillo apartments Torrox Costa at night. Last night 6/11/2018 at 21.15 hours my wife was walking our dog and she (the dog ) was attacked by another dog that came out of nowhere, she got 3 puncture wounds that bled. My wife was pulled over by our dog trying to escape the attack,various people helped my wife and dog,one person actually said to my wife that she knew the dog and don’t walk near where it lives. This is just a warning to dog walkers. We are going to vets and asking them to inform Police and try and get this owner to take responsibility of their dog. Thank you Ian Walker .
If you need anymore info I will answer any questions.

Recommendations Wanted for Quality Paint:  We live in Torrox campo and are seeking good quality white matt emulsion. In the UK we always used Dulux but have yet to find a good quality paint here. If you have an opinion about what is a good white matt emulsion and can recommend a brand please let me know. Thanks. Nigel

Recommendation: Wayne’s Drains. Just wanted to say how pleased we were with Wayne’s Drains who came to our aid and swiftly sorted us out when we had an emergency drain problem (roots were found completely blocking the pipe!). They located and accessed the drain under the bathroom floor and installed a new inspection cover. They did a professional job, leaving it clean and tidy afterwards.
