How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Recommendation for SPW Construction: After being let down on several occasions by various so called ‘professional tradesmen, with respect of doing some reform work of my home and wasting several months of my time, I have no hesitation in recommending the services of SPW Construction Services. (If only I had found them sooner!) They were a godsend. The company is headed up by Scott, near Arenas.
Scott is very polite, professional and knowledgeable. He is honest about what can be and cannot be done and will discuss all options. He has a multitude of qualified tradesmen working for him, Electricians, plumbers, gas fitters, etc. All of whom have also been very professional.
Scott can be contacted on 622 938 440

Recommendation for Patio Tiling Work: I requested the above a few months ago, and received a number of replies. Thank you. I had two excellent recommendation for a man called Colin Jeffrey. Colin turned an ugly, damaged area of concrete driveway, into a lovely Patio area for us, and I can highly recommend him. He took the greatest care to deliver a job that exceeded our expectations! Colin is easy to have around the place, and I feel he provided a full and competitive quote, that was excellent value for money. Please feel free to contact me for Colin’s contact details / before and after pics. Darcymay1@icloud.com ; Robert/Torrox Campo P.S. Please do keep up your great work!

Many thanks for your generosity and your interest in their concert. For further information, please contact Greg Starr on gregstarr4@hotmail. com
