Afternoon Quiz and Art Exhibition: There will be an Afternoon Quiz on Thursday 3rd October at 3pm in the usual place, El Pozuelo, Laguna Beach. To find the bar go through the central big arches, turn right, down the side of the SH Gestion offices and you will find El Pozuelo round the back, between the hairdressers and the supermarket. Our quizmaster will be Carole.
El Pozuelo is in a delightful position facing the gardens and the owner, Encarni, is a brilliant artist who has recently had an exhibition in the Torrox Costa town hall. Her paintings are now back in the bar and for sale as well as some by other artists (namely me), and hopefully they will be hung by Thursday in time for the quiz.
Everyone welcome, and good food if you want to eat first.

Lost Friend: Hi Naythan, Would you ask your readers if they know a lady who moved to Spain from Wales, some 20yrs ago? Her name is Ros Griffiths and she’s the most lovely lady, who set up her hairdressing business somewhere ‘up in the hills’ of your friendly part of Spain above Malaga. I have been unfortunate in losing contact with Ros and wondered if any of the digamextra readers know her?
Many thanks for your help in finding a long lost friend.
With kind regards, Ruth Richards, Welshpool, Powys Wales


Washing white clothes and bedding: I wonder if anybody has any advice for washing whites, my whites don’t seem to come as clean as in the UK. What products are there around? Deborah/Torrox
