Horse Manure sold by Ellen Amos in Algarrobo and advertised on Digamextra: We have bought manure from Ellen before and have been more than satisfied. This week again we went to buy more manure for this year. We arrived at the time we had agreed and the 10 sacks were waiting for us in the road which made loading convenient. They were well bagged, so there was no spillage nor smell in the car. The quality is very good, I think the term is “well-seasoned”. So we’re expecting a bumper display of roses this year!

Recommendations for a Plumber: Thanks to Sue and Pete for their recommendation of Rob Peel the plumber. I have lived in Spain for many years and he has to be the best plumber I have come across. He came when he said he would i.e at once as I had a fairly urgent job. He knows what he is doing and gave helpful advice as to what to do if a similar problem should arise elsewhere. He was very reasonable and I endorse all that Sue and Peter said in their recommendation in Digamextra on January 14. Hazel Bryant

The Diputación de Málaga provincial government has awarded a number of town halls in the Axarquía funds to roll out a number of projects:
-Cómpeta town hall has been awarded 250,000 euros to set up an olive oil museum. The town’s old olive oil factory has been earmarked for the museum which will show the entire process from the olives arriving at a mill, to the final product being bottled. There will also be space for exhibitions and cultural activities.
A further 200,000 euros has gone to Moclinejo for an Axarquía Muscatel raisin research centre, which the council has said will attract tourists to the village as well as being of significant interest to the agro-food industry in the local area.
-Other funds have gone to the villages of Arenas and Benamargosa to improve their respective football pitches and the older people’s day centre in Árchez is set to be refurbished.
-Macharaviaya town hall has received 38,480 euros to convert two warehouses and replace the town hall roof.

Cockfighting Busted in Murcia: Spanish police said Monday they had arrested 182 people who took part in a “national” cockfighting competition, an ancient sport that continues in some regions despite being banned. Officers seized around €300,000 ($344,000) during Saturday’s raid in the southern town of Sangonera La Verde in Murcia, police said in a statement.
Cockfighting is banned in Spain except in the regions of Andalusia and the Canary Islands, where it is allowed only in licensed circumstances after being considered a valuable cultural tradition dating back more than 500 years.
