Canillas de Albaida welcomes campervans: Canillas de Albaida has allocated a specific area to enable campervans to park overnight without the fear of being fined or moved on. The parking space, the first to be implemented in the area, will have room for 22 caravans or campervans and covers around 2,500 square metres of land. The plan is to have the area completely adapted in three months, allowing it to be ready for the upcoming summer season.
The space has been designated as a ’parking area’ however and not a ‘camping area’ so tables, chairs and other camping accessories cannot be placed outside the vehicle, but it will provide a secure and picturesque area to spend the night before a day out in the national park.


Hearing Aids: I would like to say thank you to all the kind people who sent e-mails in response to my cry for help! Believe me, I am so grateful: I was resigned to flying back to the UK and beginning the long and arduous task of trying to sort things out there, but the manufacturer of my particular aids seems to have representation in Spain and even more wonderful has clinics fairly locally! So once I have managed to shake off a pretty grotty cold I shall make the appropriate arrangements. It occurs to me that perhaps a different type of aid could suit my circumstances better now that I am certainly in the position of skiing downhill re. age, so I shall have a quick recce of available types.
Thank you once again, everybody! Dianne/Torrox Park, diannelast@yahoo.co.uk
