Information re: Car Boot at El Pantano (Lake Vinuela). To all interested parties, the monthly Car Boot/Market scheduled for Sunday 7th April, at El Pantano car Park, Lake Vinuela, went ahead as planned. It was cold but no rain. We did not need to invoke the default re-schedule plans regarding bad weather. As we all know, the weather here is very localised and whilst it might be pouring with rain in Nerja, it can be calm and sunny in Velez Malaga.
We have received many calls and texts from enquirers who thought that we may have postponed until next Sunday (14th), but there was no need. Weather was OK.
So this notice is to inform you that the next monthly market will be as scheduled on Sunday 5th May. Thanks to everyone for their continued interest and support at this popular venue. For any further info, please contact Sandy (Vinuela) on 619 471 301

Games Afternoon – Fridays: Just a quick reminder that our weekly Games Group still meets every Friday from 11.30 am at Chines Puerto Blanco in Caleta de Velez Main games played at the moment are Rummykub, Crib and Whist..but we play others Do come and join us. We are a social lot and always have lunch when finished..although this is optional.  Polly, Email: madpip AT hotmail DOT co DOT uk for details
