The Nerja Players:
AGM followed with a cold reading of “When We Are Married”, a comedy by J.B. Priestly. Script will be made available on this evening to those who join in the reading. Free event. Please RSVP here: https://www.thenerjaplayers.com/events/annual-general-meeting-and-a-cold-reading/form
“When We Are Married” is a play about a group of three couples, old friends and all married on the same day in the same chapel, gathers at the Helliwells’ home to celebrate their silver anniversary. When they discover that they are not legally married, each couple initially reacts with proper Victorian horror – what will the neighbors think? – and all three couples find themselves reevaluating their marriages; hovering closely over the proceedings is the Yorkshire Argus’ alcohol-soaked photographer, keen to record the evening’s events for posterity, and a wickedly destructive housekeeper who is hoping to use the couples’ mortification to her own advantage. In the end, of course, everything turns out well, and the play ends on a happy note.
If you have thought about joining The Nerja Players but are not certain, this is the perfect time to come and join us. AGM begins at 7:00 PM and non-members are welcome to join us at the meeting and join in on the conversation. Non-members can offer proposals but do not have a vote. If you’d rather just listen and come for the cold reading, that’s okay. Wine available at an “honesty bar”. We are located at Calle Castillo Perez 1, Nerja, 29780. We are located just between the Supermarket and Salon de Juegos through the large blue door. Contact: admin AT thenerjaplayers DOT com , with any questions.
Save the Date: 5 February at 7:00 PM. “With Great Pleasure” (Pizza included) €3 Non-Member guests. Details can be found on our website.

Message to dog owners: Due to free running dogs, not on a leash but with collars, in Sayalonga Campo, who entered my terrace on Saturday morning – the home of my two cats -, and getting aggressive with the cats. They must have had a very heavy fight in which the tom-cat got injured very seriously. I had to take him to hospital where he died after 8 hours at night, due to those very heavy bites of these aggressive beasts. As you can imagine I am more than furious and sad. The cats were brother and sister and my best companions for 14 years. I better not continue as I would use the wrong wording. Walter, wwhuss AT web DOT de PIC

Looking for classical musicians to play chamber music: I play both violin and viola and am looking for other musicians who enjoy playing chamber music for pleasure…string trios or quartets, or even sonatas with a pianist. I will be in Nerja until March 31 and would love the opportunity to play with others. I am at a professional level but happy to play with accomplished amateurs like myself. Please contact me at

Guest registration for rental properties: Hi – I don’t profess to be an expert, but this information will hopefully help Jan and anyone else wanting to register guests.
Website: https://webpol.policia.es/e-hotel/#.
Browser: When I first registered, the advise was to use Firefox. I think other browsers such as Chrome do work, but with Firefox you don’t get a security warning.
Information: You certainly need all the info you mentioned, and I’ve been told that you are supposed to have seen a copy of the actual passport. But you don’t need to scan the passport into the system.
Age: Yes, registration applies to anyone over the age of 16.
Printing: Yes, you can print a copy from the website, and the guests are supposed to sign them on arrival. You don’t have to present the signed copies to the police, but they must be available for inspection on request (I think you have 3 days).
I too live in the UK. Fortunately now the lady doing the meet and greet takes care of all the registration for me. Prior to that it was a problem due to timing – I could only do the online registration on the day of arrival, which was too late to print the forms and get them sent over for signing. So I did my own form in Word, and sent it in advance. Beware, though, that they must be numbered (which they are automatically if you print them from the system). I have heard of fines being levied for forms without numbers on.
I stand to be corrected if anyone spots any errors in what I’ve said.
Good luck! Malaga House

Renting Info: We started renting out our place in Benajarafe in Spring last year. The policia website is
It’s not a secure site but this is normal apparently! You have to click on “advanced” then “proceed to website (unsafe)”
After you enter your user name and password (you did well to get them!) and enter the site, click on “Grabacion Manual” and the details to be entered come up.You need the name(s), nationality, type and number of ID document , year of birth and sex. I’m never sure about the Fechas – I think F Expedicion is date of arrival of guests and F Entrada is the date you enter the details (it’s supposed to be done within 24hrs of arrival. After the details are entered, click Grabar and the details are sent to the Guardia. That’s all they need.
The completed form then comes up on the screen and can be printed off and signed by the guest. I found the easiest way to get a copy of the form to save or print is to use the computer Snipping Tool to take a photo. However in practice, our local hostess gives them each a blank form to fill in and sign. The Guardia don’t need a copy but as I understand it, the Andalucia Tourist Office requires us to keep a copy of each form and ID document available for inspection for three years.
We try to get our guests to email us copies of their ID documents a few days in advance. That helps our hostess in preparing the bedrooms and we are also then ready to enter the details on to the policia website within 24hrs of their arrival.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you find out anything different?
Kind Regards, Veronica, Benajarafe, veeanderson57 AT gmail DOT com
