Announcements

How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

CORONA VIRUS HOTLINE: Information hotline for those who suspect they may have the coronavirus. Anyone experiencing symptoms should stay at home and dial 900 400 061 or 955 545 060 – and only call 112 in an emergency.

When you need reliable info consult The Citizens Advice Bureau Spain at https://www.citizensadvice.org.es/…or the website or Facebook page of your local Town Hall (Ayuntamiento). I suggest you check it daily.

 

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.  -Editor

 

What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

 

Kitty Harri’s Sculpture Garden – Open (almost) anytime by appointment!
Need to get out again- safely?
We are happy to remind you that the Sculpture Garden is open again for your enjoyment, however it is imperative that you contact us for an appointment and details, as this will govern our opening times.
This is to manage numbers and arrival times and ensure your safety but of course there is ample space to maintain as much distance as you need while enjoying the many facets and sculptures around the Garden. You’ll find plenty of shady areas if you need to avoid direct sun!
If we can accommodate you on a Sunday it’s still most likely that your visit will be accompanied by live Chamber Music!
We look forward to seeing you (again!).
Only 20 minutes north of Almuñécar. Directions at www.kittyharri.com

If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

New process launched for UK nationals registering for residency in Spain for the first time : The Spanish Government has launched a new process for UK citizens who have still to register their residency in Spain to protect their rights under Britain’s Withdrawal Agreement with the EU. From 6 July, instead of the green certificate or card that Britons living in Spain are used to receive to prove residency, a new photo ID and biometric card known as a TIE (tarjeta de identidad de extranjero) will be handed out to those who meet the requirements.
The British Embassy in Madrid welcomed the introduction of the new system, but also stressed that the some 360,000 Britons already registered in Spain do not need to change from the green certificate or credit-card sized card they have already have.
