Primed for Primark!

Boost to economy as bargain chain store heads for Santa Cruz PRIMARK, the cheapas-chips fashion chain store which has taken the UK, Spain and the rest of Europe by storm, is heading for Tenerife. And that will be sweet music to the ears of many Islanders, who are happy to fly off to Gran Canaria regularly to stock up on their low-cost clothing. It will certainly provide a feel-good factor throughout Tenerife, for shoppers and workers alike, especially in these austere times with an increase in IGIC, followed by the Spanish Government’s VAT rises, hitting our pockets. A date has not yet been set but the company, which was founded in Ireland, is expected to open in Santa Cruz at the end of this year or, at the latest, early 2013. So, it is all systems go for the grand opening in the capital’s Centro Comercial Meridiano, where officials have confirmed that they are “in negotiations” with Primark. Which is just as well because workers are currently refurbishing one of the existing units there! When Canarian Weekly contacted Primark’s London headquarters yesterday (Thursday), we were told: “No comment”. But there seems to be no doubt about the imminent arrival of one of the UK’s greatest-ever high street successes, which has been triggered by good results posted by the company’s two outlets in Gran Canaria, where it opened two stores in 2010. It signals a fantastic

coup for Tenerife as far as jobs and the economy is concerned, as well as for British residents, who rely on friends and family to bring their “Primarni” fashions over for them. At one time, the stores in Britain were regarded as places frequented by the less-well-off. Now, however - just like Poundland - even the wealthy are not averse to sifting through the bargain buys. The company has even had an outlet on Oxford Street for the past five years and, needless to say, that is also proving to be immensely popular. Such is the success of the chain store, which now has

238 outlets all over Europe, that it always posts an annual profit, despite these austere times. Primark opened its first store in June 1969 in Mary Street, Dublin and spread rapidly all over the British Isles. In May 2006, the company launched in Spain, in Plenilunio, Madrid and then opened another in Murcia a few months later. The following year saw the introduction of Primark to Jerez and a second store in Madrid, and the phenomenal expansion continued with seven more Spanish stores the following year. Since then, the mainland growth has continued non-stop.

A Primark spokesperson said: “We are now a wellrespected, international brand with a global supply chain, and we take our responsibility seriously to act ethically. “The group is committed to providing the best possible value for customers, but not at the expense of the people who make the products.” From the first Penneys store in Ireland to the latest flagship store in Edinburgh, the Primark story has been one of continuing success, founded on a unique combination of fast fashion and lean operations. Its popular, if hilarious, “Primani” nickname is derived from combining top

fashion brand Armani with low-cost Primark to make an urban word. And that certainly indicates just how un-designery Primarky is. In addition to the Tenerife opening, the group has this week also announced the arrival of five new stores on the mainland during September and October. It means the Primark brand will then have reached 32 stores in Spain, which is clearly committed to the textile chain. The Tenerife store, along with the other newcomers, will house collections for men and women, girls and boys and babywear, all embracing the latest trends. Overall, the company

employs about 42,000 people and has grown 16% in the first three quarters of fiscal year 2011-2012. The company’s main headquarters are in still in Ireland, and it is a subsidiary of Associated British Foods (ABF). Primark now has 156 UK stores plus various others scattered around Holland, Germany, Portugal - and one in Belgium. And the company is renowned for creating versions of famous fashions by great designers at discounted prices - covering Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Prada, Miu Miu, Gucci and a host of other wellknown names.

Proof of income is now required to live in Spain

EARLY in July, the Spanish government passed proposals for ‘proof of income’ and other tests, with Ministers saying they hope to save one billion euros a year by forcing EU citizens to meet strict criteria if they wish to stay for three months or more. Migrants will have to prove they have either a job or enough money to support themselves, and if they are jobless, they must produce health insurance. If they cannot supply the evidence, their application for residency in Spain may be rejected. It is unclear what effect the rules will have on those now living in Spain. Currently, EU directives say that those living in member states for more than three months should not become an ‘unreasonable burden on social services’. Recently, former Labour UK immigration minister Phil Woolas said, "We do have the power to deport EU citizens – but they are ignored by the British authorities. We should heed the Spanish example and change our approach." A new ministerial order, quietly released by the Spanish government on

July 9th, states that any EU citizen living in Spain for more than three months must prove they will not become a financial burden on the State, by producing a job contract or documents confirming they have enough money to support themselves. If they are jobless, they must also show they are covered by health insurance. The decree, which potentially affects thousands of Britons, declares that Spain will now adopt a stricter interpretation of the ‘free movement’ principle. The Spanish government has justified the measures by pointing to Article 7 of the 2004 EU directive on free movement, which gives EU member states the power to define it ‘without prejudice to national border controls’ – in other words, entry conditions can be imposed on other EU citizens by member governments. The government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has introduced the new controls in an attempt to cut expenditure on health and social services. Health minister Ana Mato said recently that 700,000 foreigners had moved to Spain just to obtain free health care. The country has become a favourite destination for ‘health tourists’ from other EU countries, attracted by short waiting lists, cheap treatment and excellent

hospitals. Under EU law, citizens of member states are entitled to receive health care in any member country. But Spanish authorities say their finances are being drained by the arrangement, with local media claiming Britons are the worst offenders. In contrast to the Spanish regulations, EU citizens that go to live in Britain do not need to register or take out health insurance. And the only requirement on those not in work is that they should not become an ‘unreasonable burden’ on public funds. A spokesman for the Spanish Embassy in London said: ‘You either must hold a job or have the means to support yourself to ensure that you do not become a burden on the Spanish state. ‘Those people who do not hold a job would have to show that they have contracted a medical insurance service to cover them during their stay in Spain, and also that they have the appropriate means to support themselves and any other member of their families. Pensioners do not need medical insurance.’ A Foreign Office spokesman said: ‘This change simply brings Spain in line with many other EU countries. The British Embassy has issued guidance in English for British expatriates in Spain via its website. We

understand the new rules will affect a relatively small number of expatriates.’ New Residency Requirements 18 July 2012 Source: http://ukinspain. fco.gov.uk For EU citizens planning to live in Spain for more than three months The Spanish Government has introduced new residency requirements for all EU citizens – including Britons – who plan to reside in Spain for more than three months. Under the new rules, EU citizens applying for residency in Spain may be required to produce evidence of sufficient financial means to support themselves (and dependants). Applicants may also be asked for proof of private or public healthcare insurance. The Ministerial Order sets out the new requirements and some of the documentation applicants may be asked to present. A British Embassy (and therefore unofficial) translation with more detailed information is available on the UKinSpain website. All EU citizens planning to reside in Spain continue to need to register in person at the Oficina de Extranjeros (Foreigners Office) in their province of residence or at designated Police stations.

Starry, starry night ONE of the advantages of living on this rock in the Atlantic is the clear night-time sky; if you’re a stargazer then it’s absolute perfection. The skies above Tenerife will soon be showered with the Perseid’s meteor shower; the peak will coincide with the waning of the moon, so viewing conditions will be favourable. It’s predicted that there will be 80 meteors per hour, in some areas reaching as much as 120 meteors per hour. If you wish to view this phenomenon it’s best to find an area unpolluted by city lights. You will be able to see them with the naked eye. Look north-east towards the constellation of Perseus and that’s where the shower is located. The name derives from a term found in Greek mythology referring to the sons of Perseus. The meteor shower is actually a stream of debris which stretches along the orbit of the comet SwiftTuttle. The Perseid meteor shower has been observed for about 2,000 years between July and August. The best time to view the falling stars will be from the night of 11th August until the morning of the 13th August, which will be following a full moon. This month all the nakedeye planets will be on show. August’s highlight is the Perseid’s meteor shower which is already under way, albeit at a low level, and builds to a peak on the 12th before petering out by the 24th. Its bright swift meteors, some leaving glowing trains in their wake, streak in all parts of the sky but diverge from a radiant

point in Perseus which climbs through our NE and E sky overnight. Highlights for August include: •Sweeping about onethird of the way from the star Altair towards the star Vega, and crossing the Cygnus Rift, where dust clouds obscure the Milky Way, you have a good chance to see Brocchi’s Cluster this month. To its upper left is the beautiful double star Albireo, which forms the head of Cygnus the Swan. It is at magnitude +3, but a telescope reveals a brighter amber star and a fainter blue-green star separated by 35”, the former of which is itself a double. •They planets Saturn and Mars and the star Spica are close together in the first half of the month, low above the western horizon. The form a triangle on the 7th and a straight line on the 13th and 14th. You may need binoculars as they set not long after the Sun. •Venus and a thin, waning crescent Moon appear together on the 14th, and Venus is the middle of a line of three planets, with Mercury and Jupiter either side of it. •Neptune is closest to the Earth on the 24th and can be observed around new Moon on the 17th. It is located in Aquarius, and, at magnitude +7.8, can be spotted with binoculars, while a telescope may show its bluish disc of 2.4” across. •The 31st sees a blue Moon - the second full Moon in a calendar month. The term may originally have referred to the third of four full Moons in a season.

Police have to work without interpreters

SINCE the beginning of this year, Police stations at the main tourist resorts here in Tenerife, such as Playa de Las Americas and Puerto de la Cruz, have been without interpreters to translate the complaints and statements of witnesses or defendants, said the Tenerife provincial executive committee of the Spanish Confederation of Police (CEP). The reason for this situation lies in the Interior Ministry’s decision to eliminate the interpreter service just before the summer and “trust in police language training,” said the CEP. A circular from the Home Office, sent last May said, “Interpreters can no longer be used and therefore each station must cope by using their own officers

with language skills”. The Ministry explained further, “Due to current budgetary constraints and in order to rationalise spending, police stations are instructed, until they receive further notice, to refrain from using the services of interpreters that have, until now, been commonly used for assistance to detainees, offices and Citizen Complaints.” The National Police station in Playa de Las Americas had two interpreters, who worked in English, French and German, while in Puerto de la Cruz they had a translator for English and German. Currently, there are no interpreters at these two stations. The measure to remove the interpreters has not only affected the police, but, as far as tourism is concerned, airports have also had the service removed. At Tenerife Sur airport, the National Police lost their translator back in March of this year. Currently, the only National Police station which has an interpreter is in the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It appears that it has only

just been made public. In addition, you can no longer telephone and make a denuncia in your own language. You have to

go to the police station; it seems at one of the busiest times of the year, essential services have once again been withdrawn.

Help to clean-up after beach birds CONSERVATION group SEO/BirdLife is calling on volunteers to take part in a number of projects, such as beach and exotic bird habitat clean-ups, (particularly waterfowl), in the El Medano region.

These activities, which began recently, continue on 26th August and 21st October from 9am until 1pm. Anyone interested can participate - just contact 922 252 129, canarias@seo.org before the event.

Silencio Church is branching out PASTOR Bill Jeffrey, from Silencio Church, has started a 6pm service on Sundays in the heart of the Veronicas area of Playa de Las Americas. The Silencio church was established in 2001 and, for some time, it has had contact with the “Living Room”, above Burger King, As its name suggests, it is a place where local workers can relax, play pool or table tennis, use the internet facility and peruse the jobs’ notice board.

A team of young, committed Christians are available in the bars and nightclubs in the area to befriend anyone in times of trouble. Pastor Bill’s services will be held there until suitable premises are found for a church. This room is high up above the nightclub area and the aim is to support young people who, perhaps, would not go to a conventional church. For more details, contact Pastor Bill on 609 565 528

Base rate unchanged THE Bank of England (Thursda) yesterday, announced it was going to keep the base rate as it was. The decision to keep interest rates on hold at 0.5% was made to maintain its liquidity programme. The bank’s Monetary Policy Committee also voted to

maintain the current asset purchase scheme, known as Quantitative Easing (QE), at £375bn. There had been speculation that it might take some action to kick- start much needed economic growth. GDP figures for the second quarter of 2012 revealed that the UK economy contracted by 0.7%, much worse than

feared and confirmation of a double-dip recession. The formal start of a new ‘Funding for Lending’ scheme on Wednesday might have persuaded the Bank of England to hold off for the time being. It is hoped that an £80m pot of money available to banks on favourable borrowing rates will encourage lending

to small and medium sized businesses. The new scheme supersedes the previous credit-easing project, not only because the money available is considerably greater (£80m versus £20m) but also because participating banks will no longer be obliged to pass on a 1% reduced interest rate to any businesses borrowing from them.

Business groups are against hypermarket

Changes to shop opening hours THE Canary Islands will comply with the new opening rules handed down from Madrid and allow large shopping centres to open on 10 fiesta days yearly, up one day from the current nine, according to Canarian Government Business and Consumer Minister Gustavio Matos. In his opinion, however,

the modification will have a negative impact on smaller businesses that cannot open, as well as on staff who will, in effect, have to work an extra day. He also believes that the measure will do nothing to improve the decline in the retail sector, which has occurred since the repercussions of the economic crisis hit home.

Girl almost drowns MEMBERS of the Canarian Emergency Services, SUC, saved the life of an eightyear-old girl, who almost drowned in a jacuzzi. The event took place in a

THE Tenerife Business Federation, Fedeco, together with all the south’s business associations were in Santa Cruz recently, where they presented their campaign against the proposed huge shopping centre planned for Adeje. Attending was Luis de Miguel, President of Fedeco, accompanied by representatives from business associations in the south of the island to support the initiative to gain as many signatures as possible on a planned petition. “The new hypermarket will mean a drag on the economy because we believe that the benefits are not invested

here,” said Luis de Miguel, “The market share that Canarian companies might receive is about 30%.” Jordi Esplugas, President of the Adeje Business Association, (AECPA) and vice president of Fedeco, said, “While it is true that jobs would be created with the arrival of this business park in Adeje, it is also true that three or four times as many would be lost because so many smaller companies would have to close.” Esplugas claims the proposal is ‘illegal’, in terms of zoning and that opens up the possibility of Fedeco taking legal action. He said that the land is currently zoned for tourism use and would have to be reclassified, depriving the south of a possible new, major park, which, he said, would significantly improve leisure facilities and services essential to the tourism

sector, the engine of the Islands’ economy. All of the opposing groups say they trust that the Government of Adeje will listen to the outcry against the project and be sensitive to the approaches of the thousands of people affected. Already, just a week into the campaign, they have collected nearly 5,000 signatures from employers and employees who see their futures in jeopardy. They have also created an online platform, with the idea of collecting the largest number of signatures to support this initiative. Those wishing to support the petition against the proposed hypermarket can do so online at www. empresariosdeadeje.com and www.fedeco.org • Federation of Commerce of Tenerife (FEDECO) The following are all

opposed and urge the public to show their support. • Business Association Adeje • Centre for Initiatives and Tourism of Tenerife South • Association of Arona • Business Association Centre Granadilla • Association of Playa de Las Americas and Costa Adeje • Business Association of Catering and Allied Tenerife (AHECATE) • Business Association of San Isidro • Business Association of El Medano • Business Association Los Abrigos • Business Association of San Miguel de Abona • Indian Association of South Tenerife • Circle of Entrepreneurs in South Tenerife • Hospitality Business Federation Canaria • Leisure Services and Trade (FECAO)

NEWS IN BRIEF Brits’ booming tourist trade NEW data from Tenerife Tourism Corporation reveals that nearly 1.66 million Brits chose the Island for their holidays last year - a 10.6% increase from 2010. September was the most popular month, with UK numbers up by a huge 34% from the previous year. British tourists now represent 32.1% of Tenerife’s total holiday market.

Watch your water output

JESÚS MORALES, Tenerife’s Water Minister, is calling on the public to employ “responsible use” of our supplies. If each citizen saves just a few litres a day, he believes, the benefits would be significant. But the water shortage is being felt mainly in the agriculture sector.

Masca car suspects nabbed

POLICE have captured two men suspected of stealing valuables from cars parked at Masca, the popular beauty spot. People travelling around Tenerife by car are warned to remain vigilant and lock their vehicles, even if they are simply stepping out to admire a view, or take a few photos.

Canarians are lowly paid

CANARY ISLAND workers were the lowest paid in the country again last year. The average annual income was 18,876 euros, while the national average was nearly 4,000 euros more, according to the National Statistics Institute.

San Miguel’s ‘tourist’ status?

SAN Miguel Town Council has applied to the Canarian Government to be declared a “tourist municipality”. Mayor Valentin Gonzalez acknowledges that this is usually determined by the number of beds available for visitors - 3,000 in San Miguel’s case. But he believes the Amarilla Golf and Golf del Sur golf clubs, San Miguel Marina, rural tourism, luxury hotels and the Costa San Miguel brand should be taken into account.

Doctors abandon the Island

AS the economic crisis continues to bite ever deeper, hundreds of foreign residents are heading back home, including an increasing number of professionals. In Tenerife, where cuts to the health service have seen many changes, numerous EU and non-EU doctors are moving on. In the past three years, 400 of a total 690 foreign doctors have left, with more to follow.

Jobless figures so painful

THE unemployment rate in Spain has hit its highestever level in the second quarter. The jobless rate rose fractionally, by 0.02% from the first quarter to 24.6%, which means the number of unemployed rose to 5.7 million. It is the worst figure since current records began, in 1976, and the Government does not expect unemployment to fall much below 22% before 2015.

Spain still bids for Games

SPAIN will press on with its bid for the 2020 Olympics, despite the economic climate. The Government says it will not follow Italy and abandon the plan. But more and more Spaniards are questioning the multi-millioneuro expense of going ahead, as the economic crisis shrinks budgets for public services like hospitals and schools, with people being asked increasingly to make sacrifices.

Tourism industry so vital

THE number of jobs on offer in the tourism sector in 2011 rose to 262,823 - 34% of the total employment in the Archipelago, which underlines the importance of tourism on the Island’s economies. Last year, it generated 12,297m euros - 29.5% of total income and an increase of 6.5% on the 2010 figure.

Medical care for illegal immigrants - matter of ethics THE Spanish Society of Primary Care Physicians, SEMFyC, the largest in the sector, is encouraging doctors to reject the government’s decision to partly deny illegal migrants the right to public healthcare.

The association, which is 20,000 members strong, feels that this decision violates the Hippocratic Oath on several fronts, including their obligation to “watch out for the patient’s wellness, loyalty, justice and autonomy.” The SEMFyC is encouraging m e m b e r s to keep seeing their undocumented patients and to declare themselves conscientious objectors in order to protest the new law. Loyalty to the patient must prevail, they say. “We cannot stop seeing people who, just because they have lost their residency permit, might be in a situation of sanitary defencelessness,” said Josep Basora, president of the medical association. The conservative government’s royal decree sets out several measures

TEMPERATURES are due to soar even higher here in Tenerife for at least the next couple of days, according to the Meteorological State Agency. The Island is currently under a yellow alert with figures hovering in the high thirties. As always, the public has been advised to stay cool indoors if there is no need to go out. This is set to increase to orange alert as temperatures soar to a minimum of 37 degrees Celsius. Of course, visitors here for fun in the sun should take care to stay well hydrated, drinking plenty of water, and use appropriate sun protection at all times. Sports

that include taking the health card away from undocumented migrants; from September 1st, so they will only be allowed emergency services, as well as medical attention during pregnancy and delivery, (children will continue to be fully eligible for medical services).

“The exercise of the medical profession comes with ethical obligations that doctors cannot drop at their convenience, not even because of government decisions,” said a spokesperson for the association. Many professionals say they will oppose the decision and continue to see their patients, whether they have their papers in order or not. “These people who are having their

health card taken away are our patients. They do not disappear just because the government says they no longer have the right to medical assistance,” said Abel Novoa, author of the document Análisis ético ante la retirada de

asistencia sanitaria a inmigrantes sin permiso de residencia (Ethical analysis of the removal of the health card from immigrants without residency permits), which was presented in Madrid recently. Novoa, who is also a member of the SEMFyC’s bioethics group, said he will

organize his own schedule in order to be able to see his undocumented patients during working hours. “It is our duty as doctors.” The SEMFyC underscored that, according to the Medical Deontology C o d e , conscientious objection is, “The doctor’s refusal to submit out of ethical, moral or religious convictions to a conduct that is required legally, through a mandate of the authorities, or through an administrative decision, in such a way that complying would seriously violate his or her conscience (article 32.1).” Objection is the only way out for professionals wishing to fight this, “unfair and immoral” measure, and also to pressure for change, according to the organisation. That is why they have created an objection registry where doctors may sign up and provide a record of their position on this issue; whatever the case, they will also have to inform their superiors of their decision.

Heat brings fire risk and other energetic activities are not recommended during peak heat times. And with the rise in temperatures comes additional risks, not just to the public. The Tenerife Cabildo has reissued its prohibition on

all fires, whether barbecues or otherwise, in the forest and recreational zones. In a communication from the Environment Department, various activities have been listed as banned for preventative reasons

during this time. For instance, farmers may not burn off agricultural waste or stubble in their fields, no bonfires and no fireworks. With the coming of the hot weather there is always an increased risk of fire and after the horrendous blaze just a matter of a couple of weeks ago, the authorities are keen to avert another disaster. At the moment, according to officials, the risk of fire is a worrying 78%. Finally, the Cabildo advises that the public should not make any unnecessary trips into the forest areas of the Island while these unfavourable conditions continue.

New process for resident travel AIRLINES have begun to request a resident’s certificate, issued by Town Halls, as a requirement to receive discounts. Residents of the Canary Islands are given as much as a 50% discount on travel, whether by air or sea, as long as it is within Spanish territory. According to the websites of Iberia, Air Europa and Ryanair, Island residents wishing to travel from 1st September within the country, including other Islands, will not only have to present their DNI, or NIE/residencia/passport, but they will also have to present a certificate from their Town Hall. To apply for the certificate, you must be on the padron, the official list of local residents of each Municipality. This news comes despite the announcement in May from Development Minister Ana Pastor, that the only

documentation needed to receive the discount would be available online. The Ryanair website says: “In order to be eligible for the 50% discount for

NEWS IN BRIEF Crackdown on our migrants FOREIGNERS living in Spain and the Canary Islands face tough income tests as the debt-ridden country launches a crackdown on migrants. Earlier this month, the Government passed proposals for “proof of income” and other tests. They must prove they have either a job or enough money to support themselves and, if jobless, they must produce health insurance.

Zero booze tolerance for drivers? The DGT traffic authority throughout Spain is considering zerotolerance for drinkdriving, as has already been applied to drugs. It would mean that anybody tested with only a drop of alcohol could be punished. Trafico will conduct special roadside operations from 20-26th August.

Crime rise blamed on economy CRIME figures have risen here this year, in comparison with 2011. The 43.1% increase, says the Interior Ministry, was in burglaries committed between January and June. The economic crisis is said to be a definite factor.

Debt figures adding up HACIENDA Minister Cristóbal Montoro says Spain’s deficit to June will be about 4%, which means the agreed deficit figures for this year will be met.

SPANISH authorities have taken strong measures to face the current economic crisis on several fronts, but mounting market pressure on Spain and soaring borrowing costs would have negative consequences for the rest of Europe, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned. In its just released, annual report on the Spanish economy, the IMF said Spain’s economy has entered an unprecedented double-dip recession with unemployment already very high and public debt increasing rapidly. Major policy actions have been already taken. Bank’s provisions and capital requirements have been raised, independent valuations commissioned, and a backstop provided with support from Spain’s European partners, the IMF said. Key policies incorporated to accompany this backstop are identifying individual

bank capital needs based on a comprehensive asset quality review and an independent bankby-bank stress test recapitalising; restructuring and resolving weak banks; segregating legacy assets of weak banks into an asset management company; burden sharing from hybrid and subordinated-debt holders in banks receiving; strengthening supervision and regulation. In July, the Council of the European Union

recommended until 2014 for Spain to reduce its deficit below 3% of GDP and loosened the targets for 2012-14. In order to achieve the new targets, the government increased VAT and reductions in civil service remuneration and unemployment benefits. On regional governments, the government initiated the first step in the warning process for several regions at risk of missing targets, monthly reporting from October, and a new funding mechanism, the IMF said.

But the institution underlined the urgency of additional progress to boost competitiveness and employment, despite recent labour market measures taken to reduce market duality and wage rigidity, and increasing firms’ internal flexibility. Finally, the report said, the success of this strategy in restoring confidence, jobs, and growth also depends critically on progress at the European level in strengthening the currency union.

new properties at a 38% discount. Spain’s largest bank, Santander, has reportedly dropped prices by 35% to 45%. Spanish house prices have

already fallen about 25% since their peak. But many analysts are expecting another 10% fall, which would make the overall decline similar to that seen in Ireland.

Experts warned that further shrinkage of Spain’s economy, which is in a double-dip recession and affected by strong austerity measures, could force prices still lower.

SPAIN’S second-biggest bank, the BBVA, said it would be accelerating its sales of toxic property assets, lowering prices as necessary. It has 8.7 billion euros of real estate on its books, including building land and thousands of built and halfbuilt residential properties. Most of that property is connected to developers who have been unable to repay loans since the housing market crashed four years ago. “We will adjust prices month by month to speed up sales,” BBVA’s chief executive, Angel Cano, said at the end of July.

We’re living in fear! Scavenging wild dogs bring terror to Los Cristianos residents A GROUP of people in Los Cristianos are living in fear of a pack of dangerous dogs running wild. They are convinced there is a real risk of someone getting seriously injured, and that local businesses will suffer because tourists could be driven away from Oasis del Sol, which is a thriving area. A meeting of concerned residents, held on Monday at Restaurante Margarita, led to the formation of the group Action Against Wild Dogs. Their intention is to force official local bodies into taking action to halt a serious problem. A few individuals have been attacked and injured, and a cat is also said to have been “eaten”. There was a good attendance of 16 adults and three youngsters - all dog lovers - at the meeting, and many related stories about the wild pack, living on the

side of the Guaza Mountain. Many of them had heard of, or had been involved in, some horrific incidents in the past year or so, and they are all convinced it will not be too long before these wild mongrels harm someone badly, even fatally. The other threat is the 10 or so puppies produced by the pack already, and unknowing people leaving food out for the dogs quite innocently. The pack, numbering about a dozen, is led by a huge white dog which terrified a member of the group some time ago. “I was getting something out of my car boot when it suddenly came up and snarled at me,” said Ian Martin, of Port Royale, which is right in the firing line, next to the Guaza Mountain. “Luckily, I had a hammer in the boot, and managed to frighten the dog off. But it was a scary moment and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.” A couple from the same complex are so concerned

about the pack that they put their dog in the car and drive off somewhere safe every day to take it for a walk. Suzanne Hinchliffe, a local renting agent from nearby Parque Tropical III, is joint leader of the action group. She was confronted by two big dogs and a smaller one as she left her house last week to take her own little dog for a walk. “They were standing outside my gate and, fortunately, I had her on a lead,” she said. But I was so frightened that I just screamed. It did the trick because they ran off, but we shouldn’t have to live like this.” Sharon Edens, her coleader who chaired the meeting, said: “I keep thinking about the Dingo affair in Australia all those years ago. “My big fear is that a young mum will leave her baby in the push-chair for a few unguarded minutes to chat with a friend, then discover it has vanished.” It seems, from all the

information at the meeting, that neither the police, nor Arona Council, is prepared to disperse the wild dogs. One man said: “I’ve called the Town Hall several times and was finally told that the problem was in hand. But it clearly isn’t.” Another said he had contacted the local police, but to no avail. “They are just not interested, and perhaps it will take a serious injury or even a death - for them to get involved,” he said. The dogs, who live in small caves on the side of the mountain, are clearly starving - and dehydrated because of the warm weather. They usually venture out early in the morning and at night only, scavenging around all the local bins for scraps, and diving in when they sense food. Sharon, who lives at the top of Calle San Francisco and often sees the dogs walking along the mountain pathways, will invite selected representatives to the group’s next meeting, on Monday, 20th August, at the Margarita restaurant from 4pm. She is contacting the local Police, Arona Council, the Cabildo and even hotels, restaurants, bars and the four residential complexes

in the Oasis del Sol area. Others who have also been affected by the dog pack are also welcome. Justin Quinn, who works at the restaurant, started the ball rolling on Tenerife Forum by asking: “Is anything being done about the stray dogs in Los Cristianos?” He had seen the pack on numerous occasions, strolling past the premises late at night, hunting for scraps in basura bins. His comment aroused plenty of attention on the Forum, with one contributor replying: “A friend just popped into my home, saying they were just seen eating a CAT! What next? Old lady? Child?” Another wrote: “I was so grateful to read when I first arrived on holiday about the dogs attacking a lone woman walker around the Port Royale area when she unwittingly disturbed them near some bins. “I often walk around that area shortly after 7.30 every morning and rarely meet anyone. I took heed of the warning and stuck to routes with shops, people, delivery vehicles, etc. “I really think some action needs to be taken - and very soon - before a tragedy befalls someone!” One Forum contributor

monitored the dogs’ movements outside the local Mongolian restaurant and wrote: “12.30pm-1pm: 7 dogs took residence near the restaurant, but this time on the grass right outside, and not at the bins. Much barking and commotion, especially at the ‘correos’ moped girl. 2 men in hi-viz vests in an unmarked white transit seemed to take interest at 1pm, but the dogs scattered. “Midnight-ish: Staff from the Mongolian went screaming and stamping towards the bins. The dogs scattered, revealing a traumatised lady (tourist I thought) holding her skirt up to reveal the back of her leg. Dunno if bitten or scratched. “An ambulance came, commotion died down, lots of talk on the street. Just an update on what I saw. No rumours.” Yet another person appealed for the authorities to take responsibility, saying: “They have become a headache for the authorities, who have failed miserably in their duty of care to the public. Of course they will eat a cat; they are hungry. I suggest to everyone in the area that you relentlessly call 010 to complain about the dogs. Only then MIGHT something be done.”

Bomberos heroes raising funds to replace their lost and damaged equipment TENERIFE’S Bomberos (Fire Brigade), who played such a heroic part in overcoming the fierce forests fires recently, are fund-raising to replace equipment lost and damaged during their marathon battle. With this in mind - apart from recent a door-to-door collection - they are staging a show at Roy’s Pizza and Indian Tandoori Restaurant, in San Eugenio Alto, next Saturday (11th Aug), from 3pm onwards. The main source of cash will be realised from a grand raffle, with numerous donated

Africa Mercy Hospital ship is in Santa Cruz THE HOSPITAL ship, ‘Africa Mercy’ (Esperanza de África), is currently docked in Santa Cruz for some much-needed maintenance work, and is inviting the public to step onboard and find out more about the work they do. It all started back in 1978, when Don and Deyon Stephens, (while living in Lausanne, Switzerland) had a vision of ships that would carry medical personnel and relief cargo to help the poor. Quite a number of Spaniards were involved in the transformation of the first ship, the Anastasis, into the world’s largest non-military hospital ship. This Spanish involvement continued throughout the early years of Mercy Ships but later faded out. In the year 2000, Mercy Ships Spain (Naves de Esperanza) was registered as an

NGO in Spain to involve the Spanish people once again in this great endeavour. Today, various ships in the fleet have served in more than 50 developing nations. Seventeen national offices around the world support the work of the ships and land bases. Mercy Ships Spain aims to raise awareness, recruit volunteers, obtain gifts of goods and services from companies and raise the finances needed to continue this valuable work. They currently have an all volunteer staff with its na-

tional office situated in Barcelona. The Africa Mercy is the newest ship in the fleet, and is 152 m in length. It was renovated in the UK from a rail ferry into a hospital ship, and overtakes the Anastasis as the world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, with six operating theatres and a 78-bed ward. It arrived in Santa Cruz after spending several weeks in Togo, and once the work is done it will move on to Guinea Conakry on a 10 month mission. For more information visit

www.tenerife.nde.es where visiting times are provisionally listed for Sunday August 5th from 4pm until 8.30pm. Visits commence every halfhour and last approximately one hour. To find the ship in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife harbour, simply follow the signs for the Armas ferry and look for signs for la Esperanza de África. The web site advises checking the date and times as Sunday approaches, in the event that there may have been changes to the schedule.

www.canarianweekly.com A CYCLIST killed by a bus near the Olympic Park in London has been named as 28-year-old Dan Harris. The fatal accident took place in Hackney on Wednesday at approximately 7.40pm. Mr Harris was struck by an official Olympic bus and died at the scene. An inquest into Mr Harris’ death has opened at Poplar Coroner’s Court but was quickly adjourned until the end of the month. The Metropolitan Police confirmed that the driver, in his mid-60s, had been released on bail following his arrest on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving in East London. The London Ambulance

Cyclist killed by an Olympic bus named Service spokeswoman said: “Sadly one person was pronounced dead at the scene by the air ambulance doctor.” A London 2012 spokesman said: “We can confirm that a cyclist tragically died as a result of a collision with a bus carrying media from the Olympic Park. “The police are investigating the accident and our thoughts are with the cyclist’s family.” The collision is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police’s Traffic

Investigation Unit. Britain’s cycling gold medallist and Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins called for improved safety on the roads. He said: “It’s dangerous and London is a busy city and a lot of traffic. I think we have to help ourselves sometimes. “Cycling is a dangerous sport. I know there are a lot of people out there who ride bikes who abide by everything, the laws, the lights and things. “But there are a lot of cyclists as well who don’t help themselves, riding along with no helmets on, iPods on, this, that and the other. “There have got to be laws that protect both parties. Things like legalising helmets, making them the law to wear. They shouldn’t be riding along with phones and iPods on, shouldn’t be riding without lights.” Many called for bike helmets to be made compulsory by law, but Wiggins stopped short of

this, later clarifying his position on Twitter. He tweeted: “Just to confirm I haven’t called for helmets to be made the law as reports suggest. “I suggested it may be the way to go to give cyclists more protection legally if involved in an accident. “I wasn’t on me soap box CALLING, was asked what I thought#myopiniondoe

sntcountformuch”. Safety campaigners said Mr Harris was the 10th cyclist to die in London since January, the same number as in the whole of 2010. At this rate, the number of cyclists killed on London’s roads will exceed last year’s death toll of 16, campaign groups fear. But London Mayor Boris

Johnson said there were no plans to make safety helmets compulsory. “We have absolutely no plans to make them mandatory,” Mr Johnson said. “The evidence is mixed. I have to say, that in countries where they have made them compulsory, it hasn’t always necessarily been good for cycling.”

Vertigo at the top VERTIGO, one of Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic films, has been given the title of the greatest film of all time following a prestigious poll. Almost 900 film critics, academics, distributors and programmers from around the globe took part in the once-in-a-decade survey held by the British Film Institute (BFI) Sight & Sound magazine.

Nick James, editor of Sight & Sound, said: “The new cinephilia seems to be not so much about films that strive to be great art, such as Citizen Kane, and that use cinema’s entire arsenal of effects to make a grand statement, but more about works that have personal meaning to the critic,” . “Vertigo is the ultimate critics’ film because it is a dreamlike film about people

who are not sure who they are but who are busy reconstructing themselves and each other to fit a kind of cinema ideal of the ideal soulmate.” Vertigo is a 1958 psychological suspense drama about a detective with a phobia of heights; it knocked Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane off the top spot for the first time in 50 years.

Rausing husband has avoided prison HANS RAUSING, whose wife Eva was found dead at their London home, escaped a jail sentence after admitting to hiding her body and driving under the influence of drugs. The 49-year-old multi-millionaire received 10-month and two-month suspended sentences for the offences after pleading guilty at Isleworth Crown Court on Wednesday. Judge Richard McGregorJohnson, who ordered the Tetra Pak heir to start a twoyear rehab programme, de-

scribed his behaviour as “an illustration of the utterly destructive effects of drug misuse”. The couple had a long history of drug abuse, and Eva’s body was discovered at the couple’s luxury Chelsea home in an advanced state of decomposition. It was uncovered after her husband had been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs on 9th July. A post-mortem examination established that the 48-year-old, one of Britain’s richest women, had been dead for two months and that she had cocaine, opiates and amphetamines, in her system.

Mexican’s cook their way to world record

MEXICO City cooks have prepared what they claim to be the world’s largest sandwich. The sandwich marathon was taking place at the ninth annual Torta Fair celebrated in the Venustiano Carrazanda borough. A torta is a type of sandwich popular in Mexican cuisine, and can be stuffed with egg, sausage, ham, steak, or cheese. Some 55 sandwich-makers helped in the preparation of the 53-metre-long feast. The 700kg torta was stuffed with 70 different fillings, including steak, chicken,

Page 14

seafood, turkey, fish and bacon. It took the cooks a little over four minutes to put together the sandwich, although toppings and bread were prepared ahead of the event. “Now we have the challenge of eating the 53-metre-long torta,” said Elena Segura, a Venustiano Carrazanda Borough official. The goal of the event is to promote the Mexican staple food as well as small local businesses, said Ms Segura. Officials estimate that more than 350,000 people will visit the fair over the next five days. About 600,000 tortas will be sold during the event, according to organisers.

Relations thaw with Russians

VLADIMIR Putin has been visiting Downing Street this week. It was the Russian president’s first visit to the capital for nine years. At the meeting of the two leaders in London, the subject on the top of their agenda was the current unrest in Syria. The meeting took place before a visit to watch the judo competition at the Olympics, the pair also discussed trade links between their two countries and human rights. Both men agreed to continue talks between London and Moscow about the Syrian uprising, which has caused splits in the United Nations Security Council. Russia has repeatedly vetoed resolutions designed to increase pressure on Syrian president Bashar al Assad. “We both want to see an end to that conflict and a stable Syria. We will continue to discuss with our foreign ministers how we can take this forward,” Mr Cameron said. Mr Putin made no direct reference to his country’s stance with regard to longstanding ally Damascus, but said that there were areas where Russia and Britain “see eye-to-eye”. “We agreed to continue working to find a viable solution,” the Russian president said. Mr Cameron was keen to tread carefully in his talks with Mr Putin, which are the

first in London since contact was broken off after the 2006 murder of dissident Alexander Litvinenko. Relations have now started to thaw and the Prime Minister went to Moscow last autumn. He also held talks with Mr Putin at the G20 summit back in June.

He said: “Today has been about a further strengthening in our relations and having these important dialogues, even in areas where we do not always agree, so we can understand each other’s positions.” The Prime Minister also joked that he was glad to be taking the Russian president,

who has a black belt in judo, to watch the Olympic competition rather than take part. Mr Putin lavished praise on Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony, describing it as “quite a spectacle”. “It was a wonderful feast presented by you to mankind,” he said.

Linea Directa is oozing with quality and cover AN accident in which a car has been written off is always the worst kind, because it implies the disappearance of the insured car. Francisco Valencia, Línea Directa’s Corporate Governance Director, describes the quality measures taken by his company, a leading insurance company for foreigners. “Losing your vehicle in a foreign country is undoubtedly a major setback for anybody. What makes Línea Directa different from other companies? “First of all, the personalised service. Línea Directa offers customer service over the telephone entirely in English and German, and also acts as an intermediary and translator with garages and scrap merchants. “In addition to this, we also offer different cover options which no other insurer offers, such as our amount of compensation, which is never below 1,000 euros, or when appropriate, double the price paid by customers

for their insurance.” You also have a purchasing centre if customers wish to acquire a new vehicle after theirs has been written off. “At Línea Directa, we believe that when a car has been written off, it is an opportunity to give customers back the trust that they have placed in you. “As a result, if customers ask us to, we take care of all the processes involved in buying a new vehicle in their name, including the paperwork and delivery of the vehicle to their home address.” And finally, how

03 August - 09 August 2012

does Línea Directa pay compensation? “Línea Directa is committed to paying compensation within 40 days at the very most, although the average waiting time is always much less. “If the car is less than two years old, either we pay its value when new in compensation, or we take care of all the processes involved in purchasing another vehicle. “In addition, if the car is between 2-3 years old, we offer 15% more than its official value, as a quality measure.”

It is also the day that death rates rise by an average of 6% in English hospitals - the most dangerous day of all on which to fall ill. On Wednesday, 7,000 new recruits from medical school took up their hospital places around the UK and a mandatory new scheme has been introduced to improve patient safety. It means all young medics will spend a minimum of four days in a shadowing role before taking up their posts. Dr Rebecca Aspinall, of University Hospitals, Bristol, who came up with the idea, and has already put it to

the test, said: “I have already reduced, quite significantly - by some 50% - the nearmisses, the close-shaves and the mistakes new doctors might make. “It is never going to be massively significant because there are so many senior doctors keeping an eye on them, but we have certainly improved safety.” NHS medical director Sir Bruce Keogh said: “There is some evidence of increased risk to patients as new doctors take their first steps. “So, learning from pilots across the country, we’ve agreed that all first-year doctors should undertake a period of paid shadowing at the end of July, starting this year.” Trials in Bristol showed that mistakes made by new doctors in their first four

months were reduced by more than 50% after a week of shadowing and targeted teaching. A recent General Medical Council survey of 51,000 junior doctors found that one in seven felt that he or she had to deal with medical problems beyond their competence and experience. Yet 20% felt they were not being supervised properly by senior colleagues, and 33% reported that they rarely, or never, had informal feedback from a senior clinician. But the Department of Health said: “This will help them become familiar with their new working environment and include a handover of their clinical responsibilities. “Evidence from the pilots suggests that the shadowing can reduce the number of serious adverse effects.”

Buying property in the Canaries THIS is a kind of dictionary connected to the purchase of a property in the Canary Islands. You can find a lot of information on the internet relating to this subject but sometimes, although the facts are correct, there are many things to bear in mind. Normally, there are lots of legal steps to be carried out in Spain until you become outright owner of the property. It starts with a contract of purchase, which is a private document whereby both vendor and buyer find an agreement. If there is a developer, the property will be a future house or apartment not built yet. The developer usually includes a plan of the property and the buyer pays a deposit or first payment. The proceedings finish with the last payment at the time of signing the Title Deed of Purchase (Escritura de Compraventa), which is

Page 16

the public document to be recorded at the Land Registry. Sometimes the developer finds a bank to finance the project and, consequently, there is a mortgage on the land where the development is to be built. This mortgage is divided, charging every apartment (instead of the whole plot), and it has to be cancelled before granting the Deed of Purchase. Alternatively, the purchaser can surrogate in the mortgage agreed by the vendor (with the acceptance of the bank). The buyer, of course, can get his own mortgage loan (you may find more information in my article about repossession). Now, I am referring to some of the documents needed after purchasing a property before notary public. Before signing the agreement with the vendor, it imperative you check to see you are going

to get clear Title. Once you have the “Escritura”, you become the real owner of the property. In spite of this, it would be very important to register the Escritura at the Land Registry. There are taxes to be paid before one month since the date of the signature of Escritura. It is a mistake to avoid the payment of taxes if you do not present the Escritura at the Land Registry. Nowadays, the “telematic” information runs so fast, and the Tax office gets this information from the notary office. Once you become owner of the property and register your Escritura, in addition to Transfer TaxStamp Duty (IGIC tax in some cases), you have to pay the “Plusvalue Tax” (“Impuesto sobre el Incremento del Valor de los Terrenos”) at the Town Hall. You also have to contact the Community of Owners

in order to fix the payment of future Community fees (this is not applicable if you buy an independent house). Take into account that, at the time of signing the Title Deed, the vendor has to provide you with the information proving that he is up-to-date with the Community of Owners. Another tax to be paid is the yearly rates (Impuesto sobre Bienes Inmuebles or IBI), which is paid to the Town Hall (or Consorcio de Tributos) once a year. The electricity and water suppliers must also be informed about changing of ownership in order to bill the new owner. If you do not change it and the former owner does not settle the new invoices, you could suffer the consequences if the electricity is cut off. The suppliers normally ask for a “Cedula de Habitabilidad”, which is a document provided by the Town Hall to

the developer, who passes it on to the purchaser. Useful A-Z dictionary for guidance ADMINISTRADOR DE FINCAS: According to the Condominium Property Law (Horizontal Division Law), all the owners of properties in a complex must hold an Annual General Meeting to appoint a president, vice-president, secretary and administrator. The administrador de fincas is a licenced administrator, who deals with the accounts of the complex. A M O R T I Z AC I Ó N (repayment or redemption): This is the refunding of a loan (fully or partially) as per the agreement signed with the bank. The repayment can be monthly, yearly or every six months. In cases of a mortgage loan, the word is “redemption” of loan. AMORTIZACIÓN PARCIAL: The refunding of the loan before its deadline. It is

subject to commission, which depends on the interest rate of the loan). ARRAS PENITENCIALES (deposit or guarantee deposit): The amount the buyer gives the vendor as guarantee of payment of the property before a deadline. If the purchase is finally completed, the “arras” are taken as part of the price. If not completed through the purchaser’s fault, he loses the deposit. If it’s the vendor’s fault, he has to refund double. AVALISTA (guarantor): The person who acts as guarantor of a loan and assumes the responsibilities of payment if the debtor fails to pay the debt and the interest on it. There is far too much information for one column, so I will complete the dictionary next time. Mariano Zunino Siri is a lawyer registered in Tenerife Bar Association since 1991.

abandoned or ill-treated (or both), the owners will then be prosecuted. If you really want to help the situation in Tenerife, then everyone must work in a legal and correct manner. On a happier note, the following article was written by Sarah Wilson Coombe, who adopted little Oreo from the refuge. I was tagged in the photo of him with his brothers and sisters and he just appealed to me. He just looked at the camera with those gorgeous eyes. I rang Marion on the Monday and went to see him on the Tuesday. I fell in love with him straight away. He was the cutest, friendliest ball of fluff ever! He needed to be seen by the vet to get his chip, and I then signed the papers and off we went home: I was a bit worried as to what my boxer was going to be like, as she is a little madam at times, but she was great.

Loli is two years old now. I let the pup just sniff around the garden to start off with, and I made a fuss of Loli and Whiskey (my four-year-old Bichon Maltes) so that they were away from him for a little while. But they were soon all sniffing each other and, very quickly, Loli and Oreo (the newly-named pup) became great friends! His name was Blackie when we left Accion, but Charley, my 13-year-old daughter, soon changed that to Oreo because

of the little white bit under his chin! Whiskey took a little longer, but all he did was ignore Oreo until he felt ready to play, and now they all play happily together! Oreo is so funny because he has to sleep with Loli, and he wakes like an alarm clock at 7am each day, crying to go outside and do his ‘stuff’! We hardly have any messes in the house, and I think this is because of having the other dogs to teach him where to go - and where not to go!

Feeding time is fun. He really needs to be on puppy food, but he prefers the big food that the others eat, while they think puppy food is caviar! Oreo has fallen totally in love with Charley, and he follows her around wherever she is. Charley went away for a weekend and, when she came back, he gave her the biggest cuddle ever! “He has been to our vets and had his second vaccinations, and he’s due to go back for his third one in August. “The vet thinks he is a mix between a Caniche and a Labrador, but possibly a spaniel. Whatever he is, he is ours and we love him! So it’s a massive thanks for Andrea who, I think, was the one who tagged me in the photo. And even bigger thanks to Marion for allowing this little pup to come home with us. We are all so very happy that he has his “forever” home with us! “

Strays must come to us through official sources

FOLLOWING an extremely successful visit last October, Gillian and her talented students are back in Tenerife. This time, an EU Grant has been awarded to help finance the trip, in collaboration with Viana Shows. And again, they are looking to raise as much money as possible for local animal

charities, this time K9 and Live Arico/Fasnia Refuge. There are only two opportunities to enjoy these one-off shows at the Palms Bar and Restaurant, Golf del Sur, on Tuesday, (7th August), and at the Harbour Club, Los Gigantes, two nights later. Tickets are 15 euros each at the Palms, to include a two-course meal, and 20 euros at the Harbour Club, to include a 5-star buffet. It was said last year that the show alone was worth the ticket price, and it really does have to be seen to be believed. Only a few tickets remain in each venue, so please call Sue on 629 388 102 to get yours. You will not be disappointed. Fasnia Refuge progress AT the time of writing, just over 250 dogs have gone to the new refuge and look to be settling in well. Live Arico

Soham: A Parents’ Tale Friday, 3 August, ITV1, 9pm

Television Guide

W C CHOICE

MARKING the tenth anniversary of the Soham murders, this new documentary for ITV1 reveals the devastating impact on the family of one of the victims, Holly Wells. The Wells family speak exclusively about how they have coped without their daughter, who along with friend Jessica Chapman was murdered by Ian Huntley in 2002. At the time the murders caused a national outrage – and this documentary plots the chronology of the horrific events of that summer, and follows the Wells’ very personal story of how they have come to terms with the loss of their daughter to remain a strong family unit over the past decade. By taking part in the documentary, members of the family speak of their emotions at the time, and their struggle to find a way to simply keep going in the face of both the murders and the ensuing media storm. Holly’s father Kevin Wells says: “The intensity of grief in 2002 through the early stages was absolutely debilitating but of course Holly doesn’t go away and our thoughts and the memories of Holly don’t go away, the effects of that grieving process don’t go away. We had a 12-year-old son Oliver who we wanted to provide a really strong future for, so our thoughts were with him right from the very early days.” In the days after the girls went missing on August 4, 2002, Kevin says his major memory is of the whole local community pulling together. “When the girls went missing we had enormous numbers of police teams here, enormous numbers of media but in amongst that were enormous numbers of local people who just took the time off work or changed their leisure time and wanted to be proactive and do something to help in the search for two girls. And that’s a great feeling, when you’re the father of one of those girls, to see so many people - it was an amazing coming together.” But when the police turned up without calling ahead, the family knew that the terrible news they had prepared themselves for was going to hit home hard. “They turned up at our door and we immediately knew that we were about to hear the worst possible news so that is what happened, we then obviously had family round and shared that news with them and it was disastrous, absolutely disastrous.” Despite Ian Huntley being jailed for life and his girlfriend Maxine Carr being prosecuted for perverting the course of justice, the loss of Holly is still devastating for some members of the family, including grandmother Diane. “I’m still very bitter - I suppose I shall be bitter for the rest of my life.” In the days, months, weeks and years afterwards the Wells family learned to cope with their loss, says Holly’s mother Nicola Wells, through a variety of ways including going straight back into work, trying to create a ‘normal’ life for their son, and seeking solace via a medium. “I went straight back to work didn’t I, not on a full time basis but just to try and get some normality, and Oliver went straight back to school and I thought that was important at the time; just to try and keep everything in a normal way of life really.” Their son Oliver, now 22 and a partner in the family window-cleaning business, has set up home with his girlfriend and says he still misses his sister. “I wish I could see her somehow what she’d look like now, she had very blonde hair. It will always be a little bit strange going round just the three of us and everyone knows there used to be a fourth.” The Wells family wanted to help other families who were struggling to cope with bereavement and joined forces with a charity called Grief Encounter. This year Kevin Wells ran the London Marathon with his best friend Rob, raising £14,000 for the charity despite running with an injury. The emotional scenes as he finishes the marathon are captured in this film – reflecting his and the family’s attitude to the future. “We hope that we’ve adjusted; we hope that our family have adjusted. We still see much sadness and sorrow and we all accept it as being that price that we pay for someone that we love very deeply because she was a very special girl.”

For two cents, you just would STROLLING along Fañabe beachfront last week, I noticed bars offering pints for one euro. Yet each one was quiet, apart from the bar at the end of the strip. It was rammed, and selling pints at 98 cents. A sure sign of the times! Going swimmingly IN the summer of 2000, after singing Bat Out Of Hell on karaoke for the first time, Paul Lee was asked by the compère to sing it again the following night. By the end of the summer, Paul had an hour-long Meatloaf tribute ready for the 2001 season, plus the promise of regular gigs. Three years later, he made the move here and has been in the swim ever since, because Paul passed Tenerife’s statutory DiveMaster instructor course and now has his own dive school in Puerto Santiago. Take the plunge and enjoy Meatloaf here: Mondays: 9pm, The Courtyard, Puerto Santiago Wednesdays: 10pm, Ryan’s Bar, Pueblo Canario; 11pm, Blaydon Races, The Patch Saturdays: 10pm, The Rumpot, San Eugenio; 11pm, Amanda’s, Torviscas Sundays: 10pm, Colon Beach, Puerto Colon; 11pm, Bojangles, Los Cristianos

Silent moves RECENTLY arrived in Tenerife, mute mime artist Blip sat alone, a Harvey’s Bristol in one hand and an A4 in the other. This is his typed story. “Testing for Chlamydia” I exclaimed. “It’s a catchy title, mate, I’ll give you that.” Blip’s hand described circular movements to indicate turning the paper, and I did as requested. It read thus: Hello. My name is Blip.Though I am mute, I communicate using my arms, feet, a shoulder, the tip of my left little finger, a twitch of …let’s just say my whole body and leave it at that. I can display the whole gamut of emotion with just the flick of a member. Colour, sound, the intensity of each ...” I could contain myself no longer. “But how?” Blip’s finger stabbed the paper where it next read: I’m sorry? “How,” I blurted, “is that possible? That’s simply superhuman!” You are correct, it is superhuman. But please forgive me; I am afraid I can no longer continue this interview. “But why?” I asked. I have another show in halfan-hour. “Can I at least keep the paper?” I asked excitedly. Blip’s finger moved to the bottom of the page and I followed suit. It’s yours. “Thanks, Blip,” I said as I left, “and bye!” “Cheerio!” he replied.

Belting them out BIRMINGHAM’S Tony Kay had such an amazinglysuccessful six years on the UK clubland scene that he decided to come to Tenerife.

RECENTLY, I slated someone’s idea to name and shame venues that pay under the “going rate”. Now I’ll suggest a reasonable one. It’s regarding entertainers who are expected to arrive at a gig, only to wait while the owner/compère decides whether he or she is working. To get there, acts need legal transport with sufficient petrol. Here’s the idea: compères and owners could text them that the show is either on or not and dock the cost of the message from their next fee. What do you think, guys? I was on your side last time.

W C CHOICE Gardeners' World BBC2, 20:30 As the garden reaches an abundance of growth in August, it's the pond, hedges, and edges of the garden which are the focus of attention. In the pond the growth of algae is at its height, so Monty recommends some plants which will eventually improve the quality of the water and help to prevent this unwelcome growth. He also gets going on cutting the hedges and mowing areas of the garden where the grass has been left to grow, so that the wildflowers can seed themselves ready for next year's display. Joe visits a garden on a Welsh mountainside and finds out how the owner has risen to the challenging topography, frequent torrential downpours and often waterlogged site, and made a lush, colourful and verdant garden. And at Glebe Cottage, Carol answers viewers' queries about the proliferation of slugs and snails in our gardens this year. She recommends some plants we can add to our gardens which molluscs won't be so keen to munch on.

Neil Oliver investigates the discovery of a 5,000-year-old temple in Orkney. Built 500 years before Stonehenge, the temple has triggered new thoughts about the beliefs of Neolithic people, turning the map of ancient Britain upside down. There have been some incredible finds, including the first ever discovery of Neolithic painted wall decorations, and even the pigments and paint pots used by Stone Age artists. Special effects have been used to bring this archaeological evidence to life, creating a three-dimensional model of the entire temple, allowing Neil to walk inside in a bid to understand just how it might have been used.

Flight comparison tool UK holidaymakers looking to book a last-minute getaway this summer can compare the cost of any optional extra fees and charges for their flights, thanks to the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) comparison tool. The online tool allows passengers to compare the optional fees and charges applied by the top 23 airlines operating in the UK. It includes information on how much airlines charge passengers for checking in luggage, having an in-flight meal and a host of other services that passengers may have to pay for on top of the ticket price. Originally launched earlier this year, the comparison table has been fully updated following a comprehensive review. Thousands of passengers have already used the CAA’s information on fees and charges to help them book their flights knowing the full price picture from the start. The table contains information on charges ranging from booking priority boarding, to taking sports equipment on the flight, reserving your seat and having a meal. Andrew Haines, Chief Executive of the CAA said: “The UK has a fantastically

diverse aviation market that offers choice and value to millions of passengers each year, and if passengers are to really see the benefit of that diversity, they have to know the full picture about the flight they are booking. “We made this tool available to help give passengers that full picture; allowing them to make informed decisions about what flight suits them best, safe in the knowledge they are aware of any potential fees and charges they may have to pay on top of the price of the ticket. It’s proved very popular, and we hope even more passengers will now take advantage of this useful tool.” The fees and charges comparison table is available from the CAA’s Passenger Portal, which also includes a range of additional advice for passengers to use before they fly, on board the aircraft and after they return from their trip. Where fees and charges are not optional extras but unavoidable e.g. air passenger duty, they must by law be included in the price of the ticket at the start of the booking process. The CAA continues to work to ensure this happens. The Office of Fair Trading also recently announced that following enforcement action, a group of 12 airlines have agreed to include debit card surcharges in the headline price rather than surprise consumers at the end of the booking process. More information is available from www.caa.co.uk

A favourite destination for Britains

New data from the Tenerife Tourism Corporation reveals that nearly 1.66 million Brits chose Tenerife holidays last year, which marks a 10.6% increase from 2010. September was the island’s most popular month, during which the number of visitors from the UK jumped by a massive 34% compared to the previous year. British tourists now represent 32.1% of Tenerife’s total holiday market.

Ryanair takes with one hand and then gives with the other DESPITE its decision to cut some 21 flights from Tenerife to the UK, Ryanair has now announced it will introduce two new flights from Tenerife’s north airport into Madrid and Barcelona, starting on November 7th. With the beginning of the winter season, Ryanair has decided to add Tenerife’s Los Rodeos to its network of airports across Spain. The company estimates that with this addition, it will move some 300,000 inside the country and create 300 jobs at Los Rodeos. Flights to Barcelona will be on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 11.55am and to Madrid the flights will be daily at 12.25pm. Only two weeks ago Ryanair announced it was slashing 36 routes in Spain and reducing the frequency of another 78 due to a forthcoming rise in airport

taxes. Many of these will be in the Canary Islands due to the regional government’s alleged ‘breach of agreement’ in ‘failing to promote budget air travel and tourism’, according to Ryanair’s chief executive officer Michael O’Leary. A total of 2,300 jobs and 2.2 million passengers will be lost as a result of the latest decision. Flights between Madrid and Manchester, Girona and Frankfurt will no longer run, and those between Barcelona and Tieste and Hamburg, among others, will be scrapped. A further 24 Madrid routes and 22 Barcelona routes will be heavily reduced in frequency. Those affecting Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria are predominantly routes connecting the islands with the mainland. Only on the 19th July Ryanair confirmed deep cuts at its four Canary Island airports with the cancellation of 21 routes and frequency reductions on 32 other routes, which will result in cuts of over 1.1m

passengers p.a. to/from the Canaries after the Regional Government of the Canary Islands reneged on its lowcost traffic growth incentive scheme agreement with Ryanair. As a result of these cuts, Ryanair’s Canary Island traffic will fall by over 26% from 4.35m to 3.2m p.a. with the loss of over 1,100 local “on site” jobs From Nov 2012, Ryanair will make the following reductions to its Canary Island operations: • Gran Canaria: 7 routes cancelled, 8 routes suffer frequency cuts, 38 weekly flights lost, annual traffic reduced by 300,000, from 1.1m to 800,000. • Fuertaventura: 4 routes cancelled, 8 routes suffer frequency cuts, 30 weekly flights lost, annual traffic reduced by 250,000, from 650,000 to 400,000. • Lanzarote: 6 routes cancelled, 6 routes suffer frequency cuts, 38 weekly flights lost, annual traffic reduced by 300,000, from 1.1m to 800,000 • Tenerife: 4 routes cancelled, 10 routes suffer frequency cuts, 36 weekly flights lost, annual traffic

reduced by 300,000, from 1.5m to 1.2m. Speaking in Tenerife, Ryanair’s Michael Cawley said: “Ryanair sincerely regrets the Regional Government of the Canary Islands’ decision to renege on its low-cost growth incentive agreement with Ryanair. "Instead of more than 4.3m passengers and the thousands of local jobs which this traffic sustains, Ryanair’s Canary Island traffic will now fall by over 26% to just 3.2m passengers a year. Ryanair will cut 21 routes and make frequency cuts on 32 other routes, with the loss of over 140 weekly flights. "Sadly, over 1.1 million passengers p.a. and over 1,100 jobs will be lost on the Canary Islands to other lower cost airports elsewhere in Europe, where Ryanair continues to grow. "These route and traffic cuts can be reversed, but only when the Regional Government reintroduces its agreed growth incentives. Rest assured that Ryanair will keep trying.”

Long and lovely? I’M often told that I don’t like long hair, but actually, I do. But only if it is cared for - and in some sort of style – and not just long for the sake of it. Long hair should suit the client and not just be hanging there or, worse still, tied back. One-length, long hair just hanging down someone’s back makes me quite sad to see such a prominent feature not being shown at its best because it has no form or movement. And I’m even sadder to hear some clients asking for “just the ends off” their long hair when they haven’t had it cut for over a year. It’s criminal! Long hair, if past your shoulders, could be over five years old! Just think about the abuse it has been through, and how dry those ends could be. If it is past your bra strap, then it’s around seven to eight years old, depending on how quickly or slowly your hair grows. Having long hair is hard work. It needs constant, careful brushing and conditioning, Plus loving care and attention. It’s not just a case of snipping the ends off every year. Then there’s the subject of age. When does a woman need to call it a day with her long hair? Well, that’s her personal choice, obviously. For me, around the late forties is when a woman should go a little shorter. But I can’t

Page 40

just attack someone’s hair just because I think it’s too long. Yes, I can advise and talk a client through the dos and don’ts of having long hair, but in the end it’s up to her. Just because a woman still has a beautiful head of long hair doesn’t mean it should stay that long if it does nothing for her. It’s like wearing a dress from 20 years ago - it looked great then, but put it on now and, well, it probably wouldn’t fit as well and would look outdated. And it is the same with your hair. Talk with your stylist if you are thinking of growing

it to see if what you want to achieve will, in the end, suit you, and also if it is possible for your hair. Everyone has a maximum growth length, which means it could grow down your back, while another woman’s would reach the shoulders only in the same time. It means that if you do want long hair, it might not always be possible. At the end of the day, long hair is a personal choice. It’s hard work and is not for those with little time on their hands. As with any style, it needs upkeep and attention - and longer hair should always be lovely!

Dear Christine, The guy I was with for 18 months had previously been in a three-year relationship, but he never really mentioned it. When I fell pregnant last summer, he said he would have nothing more to do with me if I kept the baby, so I had a termination. I hated doing it, but I was scared of having to cope alone. Then he dumped me anyway, so I moved back to my parents’ house in the UK for a few months. I returned to Tenerife recently, and I was feeling much better about myself until I found out that my ex was expecting a baby with his old girlfriend and was very happy about it. I feel really low that he could hate our baby that much, and I don’t know how to get my head around it. Leonie Your ex didn’t hate your baby; he hated the idea of responsibility and he’s proved at least twice that he’s no good at stable, mutually-supportive relationships. He dictates to a woman, bullies her and offers conditional love only. You’re so much better off without him! He may have got back with his ex, but I doubt things will be all sweetness and light and anyway, on-off romances never work out well. There are plenty of decent guys out there who’d love someone loyal and caring like you. They are honest and not afraid of commitment. The trick is to weed out the ones who play games and can’t commit properly. You should be able to do that by the third or fourth date, simply by asking what they want out of their relationships. If they don’t want the same as

you, get out rather than going ahead with a pointless liaison. There are plenty more good guys around, and you’re obviously attractive or you wouldn’t have had a boyfriend in the first place. In the meantime, fill your life with fun, interests and friendships - and be good to yourself. Dear Christine, There’s only me and my dad, and he’s driving me mad by always ordering me to do things. Sometimes I feel like running away, and right now I hate him. I’m always stuck at home doing all his jobs, like making him breakfast and doing his ironing. I can’t go out with my friends and enjoy myself because he says it’s not good for me, and that I won’t concentrate on studying for school! Please help me! B As a teen, it seems like parents hold all the power. So here are some ideas for using your own power to get more of what you want. Your dad’s worried that you won’t concentrate on your studies if you go out. So if you do concentrate on your studies, he won’t have that reason to keep you in so much, will he? Make sure he can see you working at least some of the time. Talk enthusiastically about what you’re learning, and show him your work and best marks. Not only will this help to keep him off your back, but it will be a great investment for your future. After a month or so of your new tactics, try negotiating with him about going out, say, one mid-week evening and one or two nights at the weekend until

a time he sets. But do make sure you let him know (honestly) where you’re going, who with, what you’re doing and how you’re getting there and back. And make sure you’re back in good time. You earn trust by being trustworthy! Now, on to those chores you say are “his”. Presumably, it’s your dad who brings in the money for you to live. He works to give you a home, food, clothes, the odd present and, maybe, holidays and pocketmoney. So what about showing him some appreciation? Try treating him less as an enemy and more like a friend. Thank him occasionally. Do what you can to help out at home, willingly and cheerfully (or at least as cheerfully as you can). Take care of your own stuff and keep your room tidy and clean. Offer to make him the odd cuppa. Talk to him a bit about what’s happening in his life and about what’s happening in yours. As you demonstrate responsibility, he’ll start treating you more like a responsible young person! So now you have choices. You can carry on seething with frustration and anger, which can’t make life pleasant for either of you, or you can give the tactics above your best shot. Christine Craggs-Hinton is the author of 20 selfhelp books, including ‘Natural Treatments for Arthritis’, ‘How to Manage Chronic Fatigue’, and ‘Coping Successfully with Psoriasis’. Her books are available from all good UK bookshops as well as ‘The Paper Shop’, Apolo Centre and ‘Bookswop’, Edificio Cristianos 1, both of which are in Los Cristianos.

Let’s face it, workouts are not necessarily so pleasing for your skin EATING too much sugar certainly isn’t wise for your waistline, but did you know that over-indulging in puddings can add years to your face? Even if you do strenuous, cardio workouts each week, you’ll be missing out on potential, anti-aging body benefits if you do not include yoga, weight-training, and rest in your programme. “Good nutrition is a fundamental building block of healthy skin,” says Leslie Baumann, a Miami Beach dermatologist. “The natural ingredients in whole foods, such as romaine lettuce and strawberries, help increase cell turnover, and boost production of collagen

fibres to help keep skin smooth and firm. “Conversely, foods with littleto-no nutritional benefits, like sugar-packed doughnuts, can actually damage the collagen and elastin that keep skin firm and youthful.” These aging effects start at about age 35 and increase rapidly after that, according to a study published in the British Journal of Dermatology. Even if your diet is wholesome, you could be making exercise mistakes that age you as well. For example, if you do cardio only, at the expense of other types of exercise, like yoga and strength-training, you could be missing out on skin-protective benefits.

Going bananasover raspberries TUBBY Americans desperate to lose weight are going bananas over raspberry ketone, a weight-loss supplement which has been promoted extensively on TV there. It has been labelled a “miracle fat burner in a bottle” by Dr. Mehmet Oz on his popular daytime show. Even stores that don’t usually stock the product are taking note, and one health shop consultant, Joy Fanning, says: “So many people have come swarming in that we’ve had to take special orders.” As Dr. Oz says, raspberry ketones are the compounds within raspberries that give the fruit its characteristic aroma. More importantly to dieters, however, is new research showing these compounds can also melt away the pounds. Studies show that thin people have higher levels of adiponectin - a hormone found in fatty tissue that improves our ability to metabolise fat - than overweight individuals. What’s more, the researchers agree that the hormone improves insulin sensitivity and helps regulate weight. The latest study supporting the use of raspberry ketone for weight loss was carried out last year by Korea’s Food & Drug Administration. In the organisation’s study, raspberry

ketone supplements resulted in an elevated secretion of adiponectin and, along with that, increased metabolism of fatty acids and less fat storage. To get enough ketone to have an effect on the way your body burns its excess fat, you would need to consume 90lbs of raspberries. But, just 100mg of the supplement daily is enough to get your body burning fat the way you want it to, or so they say. So far, the raspberry fad doesn’t appear to have touched the UK or Tenerife, although a Spanish website advertises the pills from 15 euros for 60. But less than two months ago, well-respected US nutritional supplement manufacturer Andrew Lessman criticised sensationalised media and marketing claims about raspberry ketone’s weightloss benefits - and strongly cautioned against its use. And he really is the voice of honest America!

Bright Sparx computer game can lift depressed youngsters COMPUTER games, long seen as a contributing factor to teenage isolation, are now being used to treat adolescent depression. Rather than simply encouraging players to engage in mindless destruction, the SPARX video game attempts to teach teenagers how to deal with depression using a psychological approach known as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Just as importantly, the creators of this innovative New Zealand programme set out to make the game exciting for those teenagers who are often reluctant to seek counselling - and are bored by well-meaning advice on how to cope with depression. The result is a role-playing fantasy game, where teenagers adopt a warrior avatar and get to blast negative thoughts with fireballs, while trying to save the world from sinking into a mire of pessimism and despair. Project leader Sally Merry, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at Auckland University, said the unconventional approach had proved popular with teenagers, allowing them to address their issues in privacy, and at their own pace. “You can deal with mentalhealth problems in a way that doesn’t have to be deadly serious,” she said. “The therapy doesn’t have to be depressing in, and of, itself. We’re aiming to make it fun. “The problem of depression in young people is international - it’s common and mostly untreated.” Merry said 75-80% of adolescents suffering

depression received no help at all, leading to potential problems such as poor school grades, social isolation and a negative outlook. “Often, young people can be feeling low and not really realise what it is,” she added. “They just know that they’re feeling ‘blah’ and accept that as something they have put up with. But SPARX and cognitive behavioural therapy show them we don’t have to accept that.” The game has seven levels, each lasting 35-40 minutes - the same as a counselling session - and is aimed at the 13-17 the age range, when adolescent depression generally kicks in. It introduces players to a guide, or mentor, who helps them through the levels, each of which has a lesson embedded in

it, teaching skills such as anger management, conflict resolution and breathing relaxation exercises. As the game progresses, the online world depicted in it becomes brighter and less forbidding. Metia Interactive managing director Maru Nihoniho said the challenge was making the game compelling for teenagers, so they could play it without actually realising they were learning anything. “We had to look at the learning objectives and still design it to be a game,” she said. “That meant keeping the entertainment value, such as interactive 3D environments, puzzles and quests you’d find in commercial games.” To do that, they relied on feedback from test groups of teenagers over a 14-month

development period, including elements that adolescents wanted while tempering their requests for blood-and-gore and shootem-ups. “We knew we couldn’t have shooting because of the nature of the game,” said Nihoniho. “So, instead of having your character going around shooting or killing with machine guns or bombs, we gave the avatar a rod, from which they could shoot lighting bolts to turn negative thoughts into positive ones. It was about compromise.” A clinical trial, the results of which were published in the British Medical Journal earlier this year, found the game was as effective as traditional faceto-face counselling in helping adolescents cope with mild to moderate depression.

La Cueva (The Cave), Los Abrigos

A cave of gastronomic delights ONE of the things I love about living on this rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is that for such a small place, there is an abundance of quality restaurants to suit every taste. This week, I visited La Cueva (The Cave) in Los Abrigos. It had been described to me as one of Tenerife’s “hidden gems” and, from the small amount of information I was given, I was intrigued to find out more. Now the problem with “hidden gems” is that they are normally difficult to find but, luckily, this was not the case. If you make your way from Las Chafiras down into Los Abrigos, you take the first right and you’ll find a small gravel car park. Just around the corner is La Cueva, and this is the reason why it is deemed to be “hidden”. On the pavement there’s the menu board, below the sign outside a small doorway - an understated entrance to what lies just down the staircase! As we made our way into the restaurant, we were greeted by Pablo and Blanche, who were to be our waiters for the evening, and a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean through the huge windows. We were invited to take a seat downstairs for a pre-meal drink, which is something you all must do on your visit. You are taken down the staircase in to the genuine cave, which is beautifully lit by both lowlamp and candle-light, and you can see and hear the waves of the Atlantic lapping against the rocks below. “A bit of a Shirley Valentine scene,” was how my companion described it - very stress-relieving and something unique to Tenerife. After much deliberation and having changed our minds several times, we made our selections from the menu, assisted by Pablo, who showed a great knowledge of all the dishes, with recommendations of how they should be cooked. Once our selections had been made we were shown to our table, next to the window overlooking the sea in the exquisitely-decorated restaurant. For our starters, my companion opted for Mussels marinere - steamed shoreline mussels in a white wine and garlic cream sauce, with rustic bread for dipping. I chose the home-made soup of the day, which was

Page 42

carrot and coriander, a thick creamy soup which was also accompanied by rustic bread. What I found particular pleasing was that the waiting staff were very attentive without being a nuisance. And once the starters had been cleared, we were asked how soon we wanted our main courses, which is not something that happens in all restaurants. This gives you a chance to dine without feeling the pressure to hurry up – which, in turn, makes it a more relaxing, dining experience. Before the main courses

arrived, Blanche assisted us in choosing a wine to accompany our meal. We selected the Verdeal, a fresh, crisp, white wine from the verdejo grape variety and a Gold medal winner in 2011 in Spain and Germany. La Cueva boasts a range of wines which have been specifically chosen by the owners to complement the restaurant’s food. Many of the wines are internationally

acclaimed and not available in local supermarkets, yet are priced very reasonably. For the main course my companion chose seared duck breast, pan-seared Barbary duck, accompanied by a Scotch whisky-and-blackcurrant juice, served pink (as recommended). I went for the lamb cutlets, which were served encased in a mixed herb crust with biritz potato and bordelaise sauce and all meals are served with a selection of fresh vegetables. Both meals were well received and the generous portions left us both feeling happily stuffed!

During the evening, we got talking to two couples on the next table, who live on Golf del Sur and regularly take the short walk down the coastal path to the restaurant. It is one of their favourites and they were taking advantage of the three-course menu of the day, priced at only 7.99 euros per person, which they thought was excellent value. Before the end of our evening, we managed to spend some time with Rossa, one of the owners and also the chef. He told us that, along with his business partner Martin and his “better half” Anna, they had taken the restaurant on over a year ago with the intention of providing a variety of highquality dishes and putting their own personal stamp on them. A huge amount of time had been spent testing and

researching local suppliers to ensure that all ingredients were of the highest quality. A specific aim was to provide vegetarians with a selection of dishes different from the norm. One of my personal gripes is frozen vegetables, and it is refreshing to see a restaurant which deals with fresh ingredients only. Rossa’s enthusiasm and passion for what he does, accompanied by waiting staff with an impressive knowledge of the dishes and wines available - all housed in a beautiful restaurant - makes La Cueva in Los Abrigos a must for lovers of fine dining. La Cueva are introducing a new, “light bites” daytime menu starting on Monday (6th August). For reservations, call 922 170 039 or 661 178 043.

The most common amount borrowed for a home improvement personal loan is around £10,000 over five years. Paul Wootton, Nationwide head of personal loans, commented: “A static housing market means many people are unable to move home and are opting to make home improvements instead. “Making major renovations to your home can be expensive and people could be spending much more than they need to if they fail to shop around for the best rate.”

A NEW survey from Nationwide Building Society, conducted by YouGov, reveals around half (47%) of us are choosing to make home improvements within the next year, compared to just 8% of people who are planning to move. Among those planning to make home improvements, 72% want to update or mod-

Mizuna Mizuna is a popular Japanese leafy vegetable, which grows as a large rosette of finely dissected leaves, similar to rocket. Mizuna tastes peppery with a cabbage flavour, and is used raw in salads or cooked for stir-fries or soups. Mizuna is tolerant of cool, wet conditions and but dislike extreme heat. So here you’ll need to grow in an open, sunny position, with some shade, the soil will have to be kept moist at all times. The beauty of Mizuna is it’s a cut and come again salad leaf, will carry on throughout the summer and is ideal for pots.

Plastic-bag charges must come in to cut the waste, say green groups SOME environmental groups want a levy on single-use plastic bags in England to combat shoppers’ increasing use. They have been sparked into action following the latest figures, which show that the number of carrier bags dished out by UK supermarkets last year increased to nearly eight billion - up by 5.4% more than the 2010 total. Waste reduction group Wrap, which provided the details, says each person used an average of almost 11 a month. But in Wales, where a 5p charge was introduced last October, the amount of bags being taken home has fallen significantly.

England is the only UK country which has no plans to imposes a charge, and the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), Keep Britain Tidy, the Marine Conservation Society and Surfers Against Sewage are calling for one to be brought in. They maintain England’s streets, countryside and beaches are littered with plastic bags, which can also be damage wildlife in the sea. Most plastic takes around 450-1,000 years to degrade at sea. But actually, it simply breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces and eventually forms plastic dust, according to the environmental groups. Samantha Harding, CPRE’s “Stop the Drop” campaign manager, said bag levies had been shown to work in Wales and in Ireland, where their use fell by 90%

UK's mortgage approvals drop THE BANK of England (BOE) data shows, 44,192 new mortgages were approved in June compared to 50,544 in May. The official forecast for June was also some 10% out, at 49,000 mortgages. Mortgage approvals have plunged 13% between May and June. UK mortgage approvals have dropped to their lowest level since December 2010. The less than positive economic news comes as a study by property analyst Hometrack revealed that house prices have fallen

for the first time in seven months, as fewer people look to buy while more people look to sell. “Weaker demand is to be expected over the summer months, but compared to previous years, the seasonal slowdown has started earlier and developed more rapidly than in previous years,” said Richard Donnell, director of research at Hometrack. “This reflects growing concern over the UK’s economy and the deepening eurozone crisis.” The study is based on research from 1,500 estate agents and surveyors across England and Wales.

following the charge. “A levy is coming to Northern Ireland, while Scotland is already in consultations,” she added. “Why must the English countryside be the last to benefit from good, environmental policies?” Dr Sue Kinsey, MCS litter policy officer, said: “Singleuse bags and plastic bags, in particular, are a menace to the amazing marine wildlife found in English waters. “Animals get entangled in them and mistake them for food. This can lead to infections, strangulation, starvation and even death. A

levy is a simple, effective way to stop such a ubiquitous form of pollution.” Some retailers have introduced charges for their plastic bags, but the groups are urging the Government to follow the lead of Wales and bring in a small levy right across England. A Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs spokesman said: “We want to work with retailers to help them cut the number of bags they hand out. “We are monitoring the results in Wales, and the outcome of the Scottish consultation.”

‘Dropmore’ Anchusa azurea is easy to grow and likes full sun, but moist soil. You can plant now to catch the end of the summer and then take cuttings through October to December. This striking, upright perennial will, with regular deadheading, bloom all summer – bright royal blue blooms. The flowers are adored by bees, and look good in wildlife gardens or mixed borders. Stake plants and cut back stems after flowering in early autumn. Root cuttings can be taken from autumn to early winter and clumps divided in early spring, but it will self-seed freely. The blue beauties are edible and ideal in summer drinks and delicacies.

Nerine Nerines in general are quite tender bulbs, but, Nerine Bowdenni is quite hardy, enjoys sun and grows especially well next to a wall. They are actually of South African origin; where, the bulbs are planted in warmer areas for their very late display of rich flowers like elegant pink lilies. Don’t just plant a single tuber, plant as a cluster for a magnificent display. If they get a bit overcrowded divide and thin them in the spring.

Gardening jobs · The best time to garden during this hot spell is early morning or at dusk · Annuals (bedding plants), perennials and roses need to be dead headed regularly to encourage new blooms · Autumn flowering bulbs should be available plant them as soon as you can

New Merc monster will swallow up big families MERCEDES’ huge, seven-seater GL, scheduled for the showrooms next April, has a new look, new engine and new tech. SUVs account for around one-fifth of the company’s global sales. And while the flagship GL is aimed mainly at US buyers, it’s a worthy rival to the likes of the Audi Q7, Range Rover and Discovery with its blend of comfort, luxury and space. Strong refinement, efficiency and handling are highlights, while the seven-seat lay-out is versatile. It won’t be cheap, but you’ll have to wait until UK prices and specs are revealed to see if the GL is good value at an estimated £60,000 (76,645 euros). Engineers developing this new machine had a brief to deliver a large SUV to match the comfort, safety and refinement of an S-Class. The MkII GL uses the same platform as the original, but the styling has been brought up to date with a more upright grille, LED running lights and reshaped bumpers giving a similar look to the latest M-Class. The GL is vast, too, at over five metres long - enormous dimensions which may but some buyers off. Yet many SUV owners demand the road presence they provide. Plus, the car makes great use of all the space, serving up a family-friendly lay-out. The 2-3-2 seating is carried over from the old GL, with the rearmost row offering more room than in a Land Rover Discovery. And the outer seats in the middle row can now be specified to fold forward at the touch of a button. Even in seven-seat mode, the boot is a useful size; fold all five rear seats and it offers 2,300 litres of space. Up front, the dash has been brought into line with other

new Mercedes. Top-notch materials, a swish design and a lofty driving position all impress. And tech updates include an optional around-view camera for easier parking and Crosswind Assist that uses the ESP to bring the car into line in strong gusts. Buyers will be able to choose between the GL350 BlueTEC V6 diesel and the GL500 BlueEfficiency V8 petrol. Mercedes claim the diesel uses 20% less fuel than before, while emissions are down 43g/km to 192g/ km - even though this car has 47bhp more power and 80Nm more torque, at 255bhp and 620Nm. The diesel is relaxed, and the 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox is a good match. It kicks down smoothly and offers decent manual control via the steering paddles. Equally smooth is the stop-start system. Performance is adequate, but the most striking thing is the engine’s refinement. Smooth power delivery in

03 August - 09 August 2012

the mid-range ensures it is responsive and quiet. Adding to the appeal is the air-suspension, which offers a cushioned ride, while tyre and wind noise is well isolated from the cabin. On motorways, the GL is quiet, stable and very relaxing. Considering its size and

weight, it also feels quite agile on narrower, bendier roads. With the optional Active Curve System fitted, adaptive anti-roll bars keep body movement in check, and there’s a reassuring level of grip. The electric power-steering is light but positive and accurate, with reasonable feel.

Off-road, the GL is equally accomplished, with hill-descent control, and the airsuspension lets you raise the ride height. The optional On&Off Road package adds more underbody protection, a limited-slip diff, a two-speed transfer case and six switchable off-road

programmes. In this trim, the GL can cope with a 35-degree tilt angle and wade through water up to 60cm deep. All in all, it’s just perfect for mum, dad and up to five kids! And if the anticipated price holds good, it’s definitely a good ’un for the large family!

Nod’s as good as a wink for operating car radio! BELIEVE it or not, you will soon be able to control all your car’s gadgets with facial expressions and gestures. New technology means that you will soon be able to switch on your car radio with a wink - and turn up the air-con with a simple hand gesture.

Engineers at in-car entertainment company Harman have developed a system which can translate a series of facial expressions and gestures into commands for vehicle gadgets like the radio, heating, hands-free and sat-nav. Infra-red sensors are installed behind the dashboard and monitor the driver’s face and hands. A wink will turn the radio

on or off. A nod to the left will turn up the volume, while one to the right will turn it down, and a tap on the steering wheel will skip to the next station. Making a phone gesture by holding a hand to the ear with the standard thumb and little finger sign will answer a call. And drivers will be able to control the air-con by raising or lowering their hand over

the gear stick. Engineers at Harman say it will make motorists safer by allowing them to control their car’s technology without taking their eyes off the wheel. It’s worth a nod, I suppose, but I’d rather be hands-on for this sort of thing. After all, anyone with an unfortunate eye twitch would be turning the radio on and off all day long!

More golden success! Wiggins and Vinokourov trained on Tenerife mountains for Tour de France and Olympics WHAT do Kazakhstan and Great Britain have in common, apart from producing two Olympic gold medal winners in London? Answer: Tenerife, of course! Both Bradley Wiggins, who won Wednesday’s Time Trial at Hampton Court, and reformed drugs cheat Alexander Vinokourov, who took the Road Race crown the previous Saturday, both trained on the Island. Wiggins, who became Britain’s most decorated Olympian by winning the Time Trial in overwhelming fashion, is convinced all the preparatory mountain work he did over here enabled him to win the Tour de France a fortnight earlier. And Vinokourov, in Tenerife for the same reason, gained redemption for his doping crime five years ago, despite shattering a leg in a horrific accident during last year’s Tour. By winning gold - the medal

everyone believed was Mark Cavendish’s for the taking the 38-year-old also shattered Team GB’s hopes of a glittering start when the London Games began on Saturday. He says he has now retired on a high from professional cycling. But for Wiggins, with four Olympic golds, a silver and two bronzes, his incredible adventure is far from over. “Just to be mentioned in the same breath as Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Chris Hoy is an honour,” he said. "Six weeks ago, I left home for the Tour, virtually unknown outside my sport, and now the whole world knows all about me.” Wiggins, the spindly, 6ft 3ins, 32-year-old Londoner, who lives with his wife and two children in the Lancashire village of Eccleston, added: “I don’t think my sporting career will ever top this. " But as for being hailed as the most successful British Olympian in history with his seven medals, Wiggins, said: “The only colour is gold. Steve Redgrave has five, so I’ll be off to the Rio Games in four years

Match Reports By Geoff Huxtable ROOD’s Betty hit maximum form during last Friday’s singles knockout competition at Xtreme Sports Bar to win her way through to the final. There were 20 competitors and, as well as Betty’s 180, Lillian enjoyed a 108 check-out, although the other final spot

was secured by Rhi, from Ourplace Playgirls. The last match in the Premier League draw at WandaBar saw Xtreme Sports Bar stablemates Tom and Ian locking horns. But it was the younger man Tom who did the business and booked his finals’ night berth. At Phoenix

looking for my fifth!” Fittingly, down-to-earth Wiggins is being hailed as the People’s Champion, and in true style, he jumped back on his bike after being awarded the gold at a ceremony behind closed doors at the palace and rode out to shake hands with as many supporters as possible. Hundreds of thousands lined the streets as he raced through Surrey at breakneck speed, and it was his way of thanking them. “It’s a shame they couldn’t get into the palace to see the medal ceremony - you have to be among the chosen few - and I appreciate all they did to get through the whole hour.” he said. “Ultimately, the real fans were

outside the palace gates, but they weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket.” Also at the top of the podium on Wednesday were rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning, who pipped Wiggins to land Britain’s first gold of the Games, just a few hours earlier. It was a fairytale finale because they teamed up for the women’s pairs only in 2010 after Helen had been introduced to the sport two years earlier. From the moment they took their first stroke on the water at Eton Dorney, though, Stanning and Glover were ahead. And the classy duo made it look so easy as they led from start to finish to become the first British female rowers

It’s a knockout night! Bar, Mitch, Paul Messent and Mike Telf hit 180s during some close, exciting matches. But there seems to be no stopping Mitch these days and he galloped through to yet another final. The Division 1 event at Target Bar ended up with two league stalwarts from

Xtreme Sports Bar going head to head. Sadly for Luc, he just lost out to Mally, who will now meet up-and-coming Nathan. He who came through from the draw at Ourplace, where he plays for the Naturals. Finally, the Division 2 boys

enjoyed it as well.” There were two surprises in store for the golden trio, who learned that the Royal Mail was honouring them with special stamps to commemorate their successes - as it will for any other Brit winners. Around 100,000 stamps, with images of the winners, were distributed to 500 post offices across Britain yesterday (Thursday). A further 4,700 post offices will receive the stamps within a week. On top of that, wherever possible, all British winners will have a post box painted gold in their home towns. The sun may be shining in Tenerife and mainland Spain, but the Olympic Games have been a tale of woe there, with not a single medal recorded until Wednesday, when Mireia Belmonte Garcia picked up a silver medal in the women’s 200m butterfly final.

Jubilant Heather, a captain in the Royal Artillery who had been given leave for the past two years, said:“It’s a big thankyou to the Army for giving me time off, and to everyone for getting me here.” The pair had dominated rowing all season, beating the strong Australian, New Zealand and European teams, and they went into the event as favourites. But not even they could have anticipated the huge sigh of relief breather by the nation, who had waited anxiously since Saturday for Britain’s first gold. Helen said:“Before we started, we just said to each other, ‘this is for us’, but now we have finished, we can admit that there was pressure - there was expectation.

New-look Tenerife takes shape THE disappointment of last season is slowly fading, and it's amazing to think that we are just a fortnight away from the brand-new season. CD Tenerife will start their promotion quest in Las Americas with an early derby match against CD Marino. It will be quite an occasion for the Marino players and fans, but also a reality check for CDT supporters. It could, no should, have been Villarreal instead of the noisy neighbours. Tenerife finished last season with Quique Medina in charge, but he has been moved upstairs. His new role as Director of Football is, arguably more important, and he has had a baptism of fire. Half of last season’s side have left, and a new broom has been swept in the direction of local lads. Hungry Canarians with local pride? Or the return of some flops? It depends on which way you look at it! Alvaro Cervera is the new manager and this is his 10th club. He lasted just a few months at Racing Santander last season, and it was not his fault that the club were relegated. He has experience at this level and made the right noises in the press conference. Cervera had a brief spell with the club as a kid and knows what he has to do.

“Promotion! That is it,” he said. “This club and the fans deserve to be in a much higher league. What happened last season is history. We start again.” The former Spanish international winger likes to play an expansive game, so we should see some better football at the Heliodoro. It has been a horror year for Cervera. He lost both his parents and says the move to Tenerife is just what he needed, adding: “Only those who know can know what it’s like. “But the chance to live in Santa Cruz, where I have family, has been a stroke of luck. It means I can be close to those

Pablo put it to one side and concentrated on promotion which, of course, never came. A host of higher division sides wanted him, including Las Palmas. Being a Gran Canarian with family ties, it must have been tempting. However Pablo bleeds CDT. It was thought a new deal was close to being agreed when he dropped the bombshell. He says he needs to spend more time with his family and it's hard to knock him for that. At 30, it’s a shame because you are a long time retired. But I don’t believe Pablo is done with football, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see

him back in a CDT shirt one day soon. Richie Kitoko has been recalled by parent club Udinese and loaned out to Girona. He was well-liked and certainly gave his all for the cause. It’s a shame that his final act in a CDT shirt was to give away a penalty and be sent off against Ponferradina. He has been joined out the door by last season’s top scorer, Jorge Perona. He has moved to Cartagena, who came down from Segunda Division last time. His move was financial. It is understood that he is now earning double what he was on in Santa Cruz. He has

I love again.” Tenerife will start the new campaign without three of their finest senior players from last season. Captain Pablo Sicilia shocked fans and the club by announcing his retirement. It had been a hard few months for him. At Easter, he had verbally agreed a fresh five-year deal that would see him end his career in Santa Cruz before joining the coaching staff. But for reasons unknown, the contract was never drawn up. It was made on the proviso that Tenerife were promoted and maybe the club dragged there heels on this point.

been joined at Cartagena by Marcos Rodriguez, the bald midfield enforcer who had a fine year until falling out with Medina at the end of the season. Omar Ramos will also be moving on in the next few days. The former Under-21 international is a wanted man. La Liga side Rayo Vallecano thought they had him, only for late interest from Valladoild. It seems Omar prefers the latter. It is uncertain whether Tenerife will get a transfer fee. Winger Kike Lopez has joined Alcorcon. He arrived from Villarreal only in January and showed a lot of commitment, but he was always going to end up in a higher league. Alvaro Zazo has moved to Guadalajara, Victor Bravo has options to join Lugo, Oviedo or, strangely, Apoel Nicosia, while Ruben Rosquete, Meji and Raton have all been released. The futures of back-up goalie Brimah Razak and Ferran are still undecided. Ferran is still on a decent deal and, though he is on “gardening leave”, there is no sign of him going. Razak is in a similar scenario. He is a popular player in the squad and the fans like him. But he is taking up a vital “senior” spot in the squad and CDT badly need him to leave. All these departures have seen half-a-dozen new signings, the return of two old boys, a coup from the SPL and the promotion of some fine young talent. All of which will be revealed next week!

Horoscopes of the week 

























Olympic History



Overtime you put in during the week ahead can pay back tenfold. However, you don’t seem to be prepared to give a loved one any leeway in a matter that is not as important to you as you are making out. Think of how you would feel should the situation be reversed. It is not fair to set one standard for that person and another to yourself, is it? VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd) Lies are told midweek in business, so beware. Your stars show that your time is not your own, and nor is your space. This situation is only temporary, fortunately, but you must try to give a loved one a little more support. You, of all signs, should know what it feels like to crave the backing of those you love and respect. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) Too many opinions are blurring your good judgement. You will just have to be prepared to do someone else’s job if you want to build up any sort of team feeling in your life. The independent mood you have adopted of late has not seen you at your most popular, and it is time to let loved ones know you’re ready to join in with them again. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) Promises may be broken, so don’t put money behind them. Love at first sight is going to make this a memorable week for you. Make sure that you are yourself - and don’t put on an act you know you cannot continue. After all, it is you that person will have to live with if things work out, so it is you that individual must get to know! S AG I T TA R I U S (November 23rdDecember 21st) Time spent with an ex helps you find closure over the past. Old memories are set to play a big part in your future as you find yourself making a life-changing decision which will

Page 48

affect both you and your close ones. Virgos seem to know what to say and do to part you and your cash so beware, especially on Monday and Tuesday. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) Don’t be so uncaring about a friend’s problems - just think if the situation were reversed. Would you not expect that person to be there for you? If there is something you’ve wanted to achieve in your career, then now is the time to do it, as you are sure to focus admirably on your goals. As for that family member who has been acting so distantly of late, just forget it! AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) You seem to be trying to overcome some sort of a disappointment which has occurred. You have been treated like a fool, but the planets line up to give you every reason to stand up for yourself and to show them how able you are to get on with your life. You don’t mean to, but you have worn your heart on your sleeve of late. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Revelations from a loved one are still on your mind as you reflect on changes you might soon be making. Don’t be angry with the friends who are telling you white lies because aspects indicate that many of the signs were pushed into a corner of late. They didn’t go voluntarily. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Aspects show that your plans will come under attack as your

Quiz

close ones decide that they have their own agenda for you. In particular, a romantic situation you have been bemused about for some time should start to take shape - and give you a clearer picture of what is really on offer. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) Flirtations you take part in this weekend could see you treading on someone’s toes. You should find it possible to make changes in areas of your life that have long been stagnant. Not just one, but several sets of old pals are preparing to re-enter your life, one of whom can help you to find that new and improved path of which you’re in need. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) House moves are favoured, as are changes to your abode in general. Loved ones are going to be asking some forward questions, and you may feel uncomfortable voicing your reply. As long as you are saying what you think and feel, then you cannot go wrong, so speak your mind. This is one gamble that could just pay off in your favour. CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd) Promises cannot be broken, so think before you make them. You are likely to find yourself feeling self-conscious and oversensitive. Take events with a pinch of salt and you will avoid any unnecessary bad feelings this time next week. Look around and you’ll discover a new admirer, who will both surprise and please you.
