Updated- Easter Holiday Info for Andalucia:
There is some confusion over the “holiday bridges” and which of these will be “bank holidays”.
Will Easter Sunday will “bridge” to a bank holiday on Easter Monday? Most sources say yes.
Does Palm Sunday “bridge” to make Monday March 29th a holiday? No sources mention this.
If anyone has a definitive source with accurate bank holiday info, please send me the link to it. If Aldi is closed, banks probably will be also.
So far, this is what I have found.
-March 28, Palm Sunday
-April 1, La festividad del Jueves Santo (Maundy Thursday) (Torrox Costa Aldi closed)
-April 2, El Viernes Santo (Good Friday)
– April 4, Easter Sunday
-April 5, Easter Monday (Torrox Costa Aldi closed)

Recommendations & Requests


New Friend: I am a widower of 4 years and would like to meet a single lady either divorced or widowed for socializing, eating out and generally having fun and enjoying each other’s company, if you feel that you are of a similar disposition and fancy a long term relationship and would like to meet please contact me, Mike of Frigiliana on Email: mikestevenitt@gmail.com


Recommendation: We would like to recommend Archgrove Services who recently transported 7 boxes, and a large painting from Spain to the U.K. at a very reasonable price.
From the first meeting with Gail, through to handing over the boxes to Steve and their arrival in St. Leonards-on-Sea was a seamless operation.
We were kept informed all the way through to delivery, dead on time in the U.K.
No hesitation in recommending their services and, without doubt, will use them again as and when the need arises.

The new Covid measure that begins in Andalusia from this Friday  limits home groups to cohabitants for Easter: {Summary, translated from seville.abc.es}
-Despite the fact that since 19 March meetings in Andalusia could have a maximum of six people both outdoors and in homes, from 26 April until 9 April Covid will change this measure, with the maximum number of people in the street and outside bars (six people) and inside restaurants (four people) remaining the same as it is today. As for meetings in homes, they will be allowed only between cohabitants.
That is to say, there are no modifications regarding the prohibition of travel between communities and provinces, curfew hours and meetings other than in homes.

AstraZeneca vaccine resumes, Andalusia will reschedule those who refuse to be vaccinated against the coronavirus now: {Summary, translated from sevilla.abc.es}
-The director of the Strategic Vaccination Plan of Andalusia, David Moreno, has conveyed to the public a message of confidence in the AstraZeneca vaccine, which was resumed last Wednesday in the community, and has pointed out that “almost all the people mentioned went and got vaccinated”.
-In an interview on Canal Sur Television, picked up by Europa Press, Moreno pointed out that this vaccine is being administered to millions of people and is safe. “It has some mild side effects, such as fever and pain in the area of the puncture, one or two days of discomfort, but there are more people who have no symptoms than those who do,” he stressed.
For those citizens who choose not to receive their dose when the time comes, the Andalusian government will establish “forms of repayment” and they will have to wait to be “rescheduled within the population”. Mechanisms will also be included for vaccinating new professionals – police officers, teachers and health workers, among others – who join the workforce.

UK Emergency Covid laws extended until October as Government sees off Tory rebels: MPs have backed an extension of UK coronavirus laws for another six month.
But despite widespread backbench anger over the laws, Boris Johnson saw off his own MPs with Labour support to keep what critics branded “significant draconian powers”.
MPs voted 484 to 76, majority 408, to extend coronavirus laws for a further six months.
-The extension of emergency powers will now last until October.
-But despite the extension ministers insisted this did not change the so-called lockdown roadmap, which will see some restrictions remain in place in England until at least June 21.
-Matt Hancock came under fire from Tory MPs after failing to guarantee “draconian” powers to implement pandemic restrictions will be scrapped in October. Mr Hancock told the Commons he “cannot answer” whether the Government will be “retiring” the legislation in October or whether it will be rolled on.
-Meanwhile, Mr Hancock has expressed confidence about the UK’s ability to manage Covid-19 in the future. He told the Financial Times: “It depends what you mean by ‘end’. I see an end where Covid is managed more like flu: we repeatedly vaccinate, we update the vaccines according to mutations and we manage the challenges, especially around transmissions over winter. “I’m confident that’s where we can get to. I want to get to a position where we can have an updated vaccine in weeks or months, not a year.”
