The Torrox Spanish History Group

Joan is a well known writer who has written 22 works, one of her most well known books is “Daughters of Spain”. Please see Joan[s web site http://www.joanfallon.co.uk/
There will be a small fee of 1 euro in order to pay the restaurant for the use of their facilities. Donations are also welcome as the group, which is a charity and which is free to join, are in need of various items such a projector and screen so that our talks can be backed up by visual aids.

Joan will be bringing a variety of her books as well as her latest one entitled “The Apothecary” – set in 11th century Malaga – for you to purchase and of course they will be signed copies.

Can anyone advise? When we lived in the US Deep South, everyone had a quarterly service where a company came round and sprayed all the exterior decks and bushes – and we were pretty much free of everything from ants to mozzies to roaches, indoors and out.
