The couple went to see the solicitor to find out what their legal standing was but their contact had left the company. Monte Puchol were obviously in financial difficulties and told clients that if they wanted any money they should ‘sue us’. To this day Rodney and Brenda’s dream home in the sun is still a grassy area without so much as a foundations stone; this is because the land is classified as “rustic” and cannot be built on. Their solicitor´s firm were totally unconcerned and in fact one senior member of staff who was originally working for the legal firm moved to work for Monte Puchol raising concerns of collaboration.

The next thing Rodney and Brenda heard was that they needed to pay 10,000 euros per month, which was described as ‘instalments’. However, as little or no work had started Rodney and Brenda became suspicious. They refused to pay and returned to see Monte Puchol. After trying to ‘fob’ them off with excuses, the company finally admitted it was having ‘difficulties’ with the development. Rodney requested that their money be returned immediately, but instead was offered a different property but told it was an additional 40,000 euros over the price of their initial house and this house was only in the early stages of construction.

his case concerns property builders Monte Puchol SL, which it appears, took deposits of 50,000 euros and more for new properties to be built in several areas in the north of Alicante province, but the properties were never built.

Partners Rodney Fildes and Brenda Kershaw came to Spain in 2003 and fell in love with a rural plot to be developed by Monte Puchol in the Jalon Valley. The company referred them to a local solicitor, which, given the couple were still living in the UK at the time, arranged power of attorney to be able to complete the necessary steps on their behalf.

Walk for life Sunday was the second ‘Walk for life’ to acknowledge the fight against breast cancer and to mark the 19th October which is breast cancer awareness day. There are 25,000 cases of breast cancer diagnosed in Spain annually and it is forecast that one in every eight women will at some point have the disease. The walk was organised by the AECC (Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer). The organisation offers a range of services and programmes for the care of people with breast cancer. These include information about it and psychological

Entry required a €5 donation to the charity. Around 500 people including men, children, women and babies in buggies took part. Participants received pink shirts, their number and a bottle of water. Overall, the event was a success in drawing attention to this issue and raising funds towards more research into cancer. Suzanne O’Connell

in place. They took no steps to try and claim their clients’ money back. So, in 2006 Rodney and Brenda approached another lawyer and sued the builder winning their case and a judgement saying 80,200 euros had to be returned to them. Unfortunately by this stage, Monte Puchol had declared bankruptcy and had no money left. Rodney and Brenda were told they had absolutely no chance of getting their money back and their papers were handed back to them. Light at the end of the tunnel However, over the years, with the economic crisis and anti-corruption campaigns in Spain, things have begun to change. There are increasing numbers of court cases where people are beginning to win the fight against property frauds and consumer protection has become the new watchword in legal circles. In late 2015/2016 there was a landmark case in the Supreme Court which set a precedent. This ruling is concerned with bank guarantees and declares that people can claim, if certain conditions are met, from the Bank that received the funds related to a property construction, if a guarantee was not provided by the builder and people have lost their money. With many of these builders, the Liquidator found that the developer had no money or assets to pay off their debts, and also that there had not been a guarantee or insurance policy securing the money paid to them, which was legally required by Spanish Law 57/1968. Therefore, if the promoters received

f r o n t

p a g e

advance payments through a bank, they should have been deposited in a special ‘holding’ account, separate from their other funds and only accessible in relation to that specific property. If the bank did not insist that this deposit account was opened and that the amounts were guaranteed, then the bank themselves may very well be liable. Rodney and Brenda have been advised by Spanish Solutions that they have the option of either suing the Bank for not fulfilling the conditions of the law or of suing the solicitor acting for them for negligence and misrepresentation, as they clearly did not do their job properly and act in a professional manner. The couple are now working along the Spanish Solutions team to win back their deposit. Amanda Thomas, Spanish Solutions said: “We know that there are many other people who have lost upwards of 50,000 euros because of Monte Puchol and their associated solicitors and are asking for those affected to get in touch with us. “Anyone who has their paperwork, such as contracts, copies of all payments, any correspondence with the legal firm and emails may well have a strong legal case. This can be used to help them sue the bank or legal firm and recover all of their money and interest and costs. “Rodney and Brenda, came to us on the off chance and as a result may now have a good chance of recovering more than 110,000 euros.” For further information contact Amanda on 966 760 917.

Bank holiday not to everyone’s liking ■ SUZANNE O’CONNELL suzanne@costablancapeople.com

As King Felipe, Queen Letizia, Princesses Sofia and Leonor and acting prime minister, Mariano Rajoy stood to attention in the rain in Madrid, not all of Spain stood with them in celebrating national Spain Day. The 12th October, now officially called Fiesta Nacional de España, is the day when Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas in 1492 is traditionally marked. Until 1987 the day was known as Dia de la Hispanidad and is also used as an opportunity to celebrate Spain’s Armed Forces. Locally, it was quite a low key affair with most families choosing to enjoy a day free from work rather than taking part in any traditional processions or displays. The main focus of celebration was in Madrid where the Royal family, Prime Minister and Defence Minister stood in the rain whilst hundreds of Spanish troops marched past them. A new sheep, ‘Miura’, paraded alongside the Spanish Legion as the previous mascot, ‘Pepe’, the goat had died. There was a fly-past which was somewhat obscured by the low cloud and rain.

Objectors Conspicuous in their absence in the celebrations was the Podemos leader, Pablo Iglesias, and the mayor of Madrid,Manuela Carmen. There is no doubt that Pablo Iglesias’ abstention from the day was intentional. However, there is some uncertainty over Manuela Carmen as she did have a prior appointment meeting with mayors in South America. Pablo Iglesias countered the accusations of lack of patriotism levelled at him by arguing that

‘patriots do not have offshore accounts in tax havens’. The controversy over the day is linked to Spain’s colonial past. Objections to the holiday this year were particularly focused upon the Badalona City Council. The city hall official, José Téllez, publicly ripped up a court order which told leaders that the town hall must be closed for the bank holiday. Mr Téllez ripped up the court order in front of TV cameras and a complaint has been made by the PP to Spain’s Foreign Secretary, José Manuel García Margallo. The Badalona City Council gave as their reason for their contempt that the holiday, ‘celebrates the genocide of the occupation of America and has Francoist connotations.’ The day is traditionally celebrated with military parades and shows of military strength. It was used by Francisco Franco as a display of his dictatorship. Ahora Madrid, Manuela Carmen’s party, noted the day by displaying the wiphala flag outside the town hall. The wiphala represents the native people of South America and is also a national symbol of Bolivia. The day also received a cool welcome in Barcelona. The mayor, Ada Colau, has previously stated her opposition to the spending of around €800,000 on a military parade that marks genocide. Some historians argue that the Spanish conquest of the Americas led to the deaths of up to eight million indigenous people. In Catalonia it was reported that 40 town halls that are run by the Catalan Left refused to take the day off this year. In the meantime many towns did continue to make the most of the bank holiday with traditional events being organised. Whether you agree with the history of the day or not, most enjoyed a mid-week break even if it did follow the tradition of a wet British bank holiday.

BITE SIZE International NEWS: auditorium to rent Continued from page 3

Second promotional video The department of commerce in Torrevieja has launched the second of its promotional videos to publicise what’s available in the town. The video is two minutes long and will be publicised via social media. It shows young shoppers and families entering different shops and restaurants and getting very impressive service. It continues to be part of the town hall’s attempts to draw more people back into the town centre rather than shopping in the commercial centres. If you would like to have a preview of the video you can watch it on youtube: https://youtu.be/Nfx80qSTAu4

Proposals for Torrevieja’s train Could we be nearer to having a rail connection in Torrevieja? The difficulty is that to create this kind of connection there will always be someone who is inconvenienced by it being on their doorstep. Now, in a bid to find a mutually agreeable position for a railway connection, the mayor, José Manuel Dolón has proposed a new site to the Ministry of Public Works. The mayor has sent a technical report which places the prospective train station inbetween Rojales and Los Montesinos. The mayor rejected three previous alternatives as being unacceptable. One of these would have used the previous railway line which is now a heritage area and the other two were bordering the natural parks and lakes. The new site being proposed has already been discussed with the other mayors and responses have been positive. ‘It would not affect any industries or agriculture, nor would it be a threat to homes,’ explained José Manuel Dolón. ‘We hope that the technicians who will study the proposals will agree.’

Moving closer to a wider N332 All those who use the N332 road between Guardamar and Orihuela Costa know how congested it becomes in the summer. With stretches either side already dual carriageways, the hope is that the Torrevieja stretch will soon be able to join them. At least one obstacle has been removed from the latest bid to make the N332 wider. It was announced by the mayor, José Manuel Dolón, that arranging drainage in the area need not prevent the work going ahead. It had been thought that this could have held up the proposed works. It would seem that now, with agreement from different government agencies, that finally the widening of the N332 should be able to go ahead. Continued on page 6

The majority of people living in and visiting Torrevieja have probably never been to its International Auditorium. Set high up on the hill overlooking Torrevieja, it’s used, perhaps a dozen times a year for events and concerts. The auditorium and conservatorywere opened in 2011 and cost 43 million euros. In a bid to make the building earn its living, the SPTCV (La Sociedad Proyectos Temáticos de la Comunitat Valenciana) is putting it up for rent at a charge of €4,000 a day. Currently only Torrevieja benefits from the use of the building, hosting events there occasionally as part of the town’s cultural programme. The move towards renting out the accommodation is also motivated by the heavy tax bill that this property commands. The fee of €4,000 would entitle you to the use of the whole auditorium. More modest requests could include the use of the symphony hall for €1,000 a day, the chamber hall for €400 and more moderate

fees for using the exhibition hall at €200 or a dressing room for €50. The cost of the lease includes outside services such as cleaning, catering, lighting, sound and security. Forms for applying for the use of the hall can be found online along with the rental rates and a model contract. You can even take a closer look at what is available through the photo gallery. The last concert held there was Raphael last Saturday and was part of the town’s cultural programme. Torrevieja continues to hold symphonic concerts in the building as well as some more unusual events such as a job fair and an exhibition selling homes to the Russian community. Suzanne O’Connell

Orihuela Outlet Fair Fifteen businesses are to offer quality products at reduced prices from 21st to 23rd October at the Orihuela Outlet Fair. The Glorieta Gabriél Miró in Orihuela will host the fair organised by the Orihuela Shopkeepers Association (ACMO). Association president Trinitario Belmar assured potential customers that there will be “many bargains”.

ACMO and the Town Hall are bringing back this fair, which has not been held since 2014, and for the first time there will also be two car dealers offering second hand vehicles at affordable prices to the public. The fair will be open from 10am to 2pm and from 5pm to 9pm, and will also have children's activities, entertainers and dance performances.

Torrevieja’s five party council down to four Following the May 2015 elections, a local government was formed from the combination of five separate parties. Councillors combined from Los Verdes (4), PSOE (4), SueñaTorrevieja (2), IU (1) and APTCe (2) to create sufficient councillors to take over the town council from the PP. The situation has always been difficult for the ‘pentapartito’ as the Ciudadanos political party’s two councillors abstained and have sometimes voted alongside the PP (11 councillors) to challenge or overturn decisions. The local government’s situation has now become even more precarious with the stepping down of two councillors from the government team. The two Sueña councillors, Pablo Samper and Alejandro Blanco, have resigned leaving the government with only 10 councillors. The decision was made following the agreement of 97.5% of its members (around 60 people). In a brief statement the councillors said that the decision was

based on differences including having a different vision for Torrevieja than the ruling party. Councillors Samper and Blanco are keen to emphasise that this was not as a result of any one specific disagreement. However, there has been recent conflict between the Sueño councillors and the Mayor, José Manuel Dolón, over the sports provision in the town. It is believed that it is this that has triggered the current rift. The councillors still intend to maintain a conversation with the ruling party and won’t forget that they have had a part in formulating decisions alongside them over the past sixteen months. They have stated the intention of acting in a sensible and responsible manner with the best interests of the people of Torrevieja as the driving force for their votes. It remains to be seen what the outcome of this move will be in terms of decision-making in the town hall. Suzanne O’Connell

Pensioners not to be ‘cut off’ Utility supplier Iberdrola has signed a deal agreeing not to cut off the electricity where hard-pressed pensioners cannot pay their bills. An agreement with the Democratic Union of Pensioners and Retirees (UPD), which is run by pensioners, says affected customers should obtain a report from them certifying they are not earning enough to cover their power costs. Face-to-face consultations and advice on fuel-saving and bill restructure will also be offered to UPD pensioners, even if they are able to pay but finding it a struggle to make ends meet. The UPD, a non-profit association, also offers financial help for retirees with severe money troubles. Chairman of UPD, Luis Martín Pindado, says he has been pleasantly surprised at Iberdrola's generosity. “There are so many people in Spain, pensioners included, who have to put up with being freezing cold in winter

because they cannot afford heating,” Martín explains. He says that many pensioners exist on less than €600 a month, and that even those who are higher earners have been forced to become a ‘safety net’ for their younger relatives. In recent years, the utility board has been offering a flat-rate monthly bill system, whereby average electricity consumption is calculated and the customer pays this amount every month with no variation. Twice-yearly, the figure is reviewed and adjusted to reflect changes in average consumption, either reduced or increased accordingly with a letter sent to the customer in advance. Once a year, the surplus paid or shortfall is calculated and divided into 12, with each of the 12 quotas added onto or deducted from the next year's monthly payments after the customer is given notice by letter.

FREE British man arrested in Orihuela Costa mammograms at Quirónsalud

Quirónsalud Hospitals in Valencia and Torrevieja have launched a campaign to prevent breast cancer by conducting free mammograms to mark the World Cancer Day, October 19th. Early diagnosis of the disease through mammography reduces mortality rate between 15% and 20%. For women interested in booking an appointment at Quirónsalud Torrevieja, the analytical period will be from 17th to 21st October and those interested may request information by phone 966 92 57 61 prevencion.trv@quironsalud.es mail or through the web http://www.quironsalud.es/torrevieja/es Specialists recommend having your first mammogram at forty years of age and to repeat this test every two years for early diagnosis of this disease, "although depending on the characteristic of the breasts the specialist may recommend an annual review for a period of time for improved monitoring," said Dr. Teresa Olmos, Quirónsalud Hospital oncologist Valencia. Breast cancer is the most common cancers among women in Spain and represents 29% of all cancers. It is estimated that one in eight women will suffer with breast cancer.

for abusing his own daughter A British fugitive captured by the National Police is facing 39 years in prison in his UK home country, after the arrested was brought before the Court of Instruction 2 of the National Court in Madrid. The National Police arrested the British citizen, aged 61 years old, in Orihuela Costa as he was wanted by the judicial authorities of the United Kingdom for crimes of sexual assault and child pornography, according to the Provincial Commissioner. The fugitive is accused of having

sexually assaulted his own daughter when she was just 9 years old. It is believed that the crimes took place in the early 1990’s and the man is also wanted in relation to crimes of a sexual nature committed against his daughter’s friend, thought to be around 11 years of age at the time. The operation that culminated in his arrest began in early October, when agents of the Provincial Judicial Police Brigade were informed that the wanted man could be residing in Orihuela Costa, where he was

located and captured last week. Notthingam courts accused the detainee, according to the Criminal Code of the country, of crimes of indecent assault, sexual assault on minor, witness intimidation, and forcing a minor to witness sexual acts. For these four counts, according to a statement released by the National Police, he could face a sentence of 39 years in prison.. The arrest was carried out by officers from the Specialist Crime Unit and Violent (udev) of Alicante.

The creaks and groans of an overloaded legal system The judiciary system in the Alicante Province is at breaking point. The difficulties that the courts in different towns across the province are facing are not just down to too many cases to handle. The premises in which the courts and their associated offices are located are simply inadequate. Piles of paperwork, overcrowding, dilapidated and inappropriate buildings are just some of the difficulties that those working for the judiciary face on a day to day basis. Lack of investment over years is being blamed for the current state of the court houses and administrative offices. So poor are some of the conditions under which employees are working that they themselves are breaking the same laws that their courts are designed to enforce. The multitude of basic building

problems such as falling masonry, poor plumbing and problems with IT mean that valuable time is taken away from the real task of sorting out the large ‘pending’ pile of cases. It is claimed that there are currently more than 250,000 unresolved cases in the province of Alicante. In other words, one for every eight people living there.‘This translates into an unacceptable period of time between the entering of a case in the courts of Alicante and the judicial response,’ says the Alicante Magistrate Salvador Bellmont. Some buildings have not been renovated for decades and include antiquated electrics, dangerous architectural problems, absence of waiting rooms and lack of fire detection systems. The lack of facilities can lead to

real problems for those being called to court. For example, lack of a separate room for victims and aggressors. The poor working conditions have led to a high turn around of staff with many temporary appointments being made. In Torrevieja space is so limited that presentations are made through a window of the courthouse. The transfer of detainees and those arrested is in full public view in front of the main door. Again, not an ideal situation for any of those involved. Suzanne O’Connell

Terrorist recruiter Deceitful Duo Found arrested in Altea Guilty of Benefit Fraud A multi-national swoop by special agents has led to two Jihad recruits being arrested in Spain, including one in the Alicante-province seaside town of Altea. Residents, who include a sizeable population of expats – many of whom are British – were stunned to

hear a DAESH recruiter had been in their midst and that he was in direct and constant contact with leaders of the cell in Syria and Iraq. The man, identified as Anuar M., 38, originally from Morocco, was one of four caught in the same police operation. A second was arrested in the

Spanish-owned city-province of Ceuta on the northern Moroccan coast, and two others in Morocco itself. The Ceuta man, 34, a compatriot of Anuar, is said to have been a ‘charismatic recruiter’ whose eloquence and sales pitch managed to lure a high number of potential Jihad fighters. In fact, his followers referred to him as a ‘Sheikh’, or spiritual leader, which made him a ‘powerful weapon of indoctrination and capture’, according to police. Anuar's arrest at an apartment block with privileged sea views just a few metres from the L'Olla port caught even his closest contacts unawares – another young Moroccan man was in the apartment at the time, but had nothing to do with the case, and was seen leaving the building with ‘a terrified expression on his face’, witnesses say. Anuar’s Spanish girlfriend, who owns the flat he was arrested from, was not at home at the time. A search on the property took police over five hours, having broken the door down to gain entry. Investigators left the building carrying several boxes of items seized to inspect for evidence before heading for Anuar’s own house, on the C/ Zubeldia in Altea town centre close to the town hall. Another raid lasting several hours was carried out, but this time officers opened the door with Anuar’s keys. Finally, an Arab butcher’s shop owned by Anuar’s cousin was searched, but the cousin was found to be innocent and stresses that Anuar must be, too. He says: “I don’t believe my cousin would have sworn allegiance to DAESH, because he knows I’m their number one hater.” Police have been investigating the Jihad cell since 2014 after finding out that two Moroccans living in Spain had joined a katiba, or DAESH unit, based in Syria and Iraq but with branches in Spain and Morocco.

A Benalmádena resident and his UK accomplice who falsely claimed he was living in the UK have both been found guilty of benefit fraud. British pensioner Antony McNamara made a claim for Pension Credit in 2011, despite working and living in Benalmádena on the Costa del Sol. On his claim he

“I would encourage anyone who knows of similar fraudsters in their communities to continue passing details through to our colleagues in Spain.” falsely stated that he lived in Heysham, England with his “sister” Margaret Walsh and asked that his benefit be paid into her bank account as he did not have one of his own. Over the next four years his so-called sister would transfer his benefit money from her bank account to his, allowing McNamara to continue enjoying his Spanish lifestyle at the expense of the British taxpayer. Investigations carried out in 2015 by DWP fraud teams in the UK and Spain revealed that not only had

McNamara been living and working in Spain for the past four years and owned 50% of a property there, but also his alleged “sister” was actually someone with whom he had been in a relationship with many years previously and had a child with. In June of this year the 70 year old pleaded guilty to benefit fraud totalling £15,147.90. He was handed a suspended sentence and ordered to repay the money in full. His fictional sister Margaret Walsh admitted one offence of lying to the investigator when he called to speak to McNamara by saying that he had “just stepped out for a minute”, but denied assisting him by letting the DWP think he was living with her. However, after a trial at Liverpool Magistrates Court, she was found guilty on all charges of assisting McNamara in obtaining benefit by deception and was sentenced to 10 weeks electronic tagging and a curfew. Department for Work and Pensions Fraud Investigator David Topping, who worked on the case stated: “This case shows that people abroad who set out to defraud the benefit system in the UK by claiming benefits they are clearly not entitled to, will be tracked down and dealt with in the courts. “The Department’s Fraud and Error Service take every allegation received very seriously and wherever possible will investigate and take appropriate action. “I would encourage anyone who knows of similar fraudsters in their communities to continue passing details through to our colleagues in Spain.” Benefit fraud affects all of us and takes money away from those that need it the most. If you suspect someone of committing, or assisting someone to commit benefit fraud in Spain, call the free and confidential fraud hotline on 900 55 44 40 or report a benefit thief online at www.gov.uk/reportbenefit-fraud

2017 Bank holidays Next year's bank holiday calendar has been issued, giving workers plenty of time to plan their bonus days off and everyone else to work out when they will need to get extra groceries in before the shops shut. Of the 12 annual national holidays, nine are considered ‘non-substitutable’ – given that most are global and deeprooted traditionally – of which New Year's Day is not one, since it falls on a Sunday which is a non-working day in any case. If 6th January, or Three Kings Day' – when Spain normally hands out Christmas presents – falls on a Sunday, it is usually moved to Monday, 7th January, but in 2017 it is on a Friday so workers and school children will get a long weekend. Otherwise, the fixed national holidays are: Good Friday, which falls on 14th April; Labour Day, always on 1st May – a Monday in 2017; Tuesday, 15th August, ‘Day of the Assumption’; Thursday, 12th October, ‘Hispanic Day’, historically to mark the conquering of the Americas but now simply ‘National Day for Spain’ so as not to remind Latin American residents of the bloodthirsty colonisation; Wednesday, 1st November, ‘All Saint's Day’, when Spain traditionally honours its departed loved ones and attends to graves; Wednesday, 6th December, ‘Constitution Day’, and Friday, 8th December, ‘Day of the Immaculate Conception’; and finally, Christmas Day,

which falls on a Monday in 2017. Thursday, 7th December may see scant activity in offices, shops, restaurants and other trade premises, especially the public sector, as many employees will either take it as annual leave to give themselves a five-day break or will be given it by their employers. The same may happen on Friday, 13th October. Boxing Day is not a public holiday in Spain, so British workers should plan ahead and book a day's annual leave if they do not want to drag themselves into the office with a Christmas hangover.

Non-fixed bank holidays Four other non-fixed bank holidays, which not all regions observe, include 2nd January, a Monday, which will only be a day off in, curiously enough, all regions starting with the letter A: Andalucía, Asturias, and Aragón, as well as Murcia, Castilla y León and the Spanish-owned city-province of Melilla on the northern Moroccan coast. Maundy Thursday will be a bank holiday in 2017 in all regions for the first time ever, except for Catalunya which will continue to take Easter Monday, 17th April, off instead – in the past, Spain had an almost even split of regions taking Easter Monday off work and those opting for Maundy Thursday instead. This year, San José – or Saint Joseph's Day – falls on a Sunday, but most regions which observe it are expected to take Monday, 20th March off instead of the usual 19th March.

For Valencia, 19th March has always been sacred – at least in the province of the same name and that of Castellón – because of the region's huge Fallas festival, where giant and colourful papier-mâché statues satirising celebrities, politicians and current affairs are set up, falleras in traditional costume party round the clock, and the monuments are then burnt down. Other than in the north of the province, Alicante does not celebrate the Fallas and it is common to find shops open just 30 kilometres away from the main hub of fiesta activity. So far, only Extremadura and Madrid have chosen to take 20th March 20 off work. Tuesday, 25th July, the Apostle Santiago Day, is celebrated generally in all regions, but each one may decide to move it to the Monday to avoid disruptions with workers taking the day off in between. At the moment, only Galicia, Navarra and the Basque Country will take July 25 off, but elsewhere in the country most towns will have an extra ‘local’ bank holiday in the summer to mark their annual festivals. This year, 2016, Labour Day on 1st May was a Sunday, and Christmas Day will also be so, meaning these two fiestas are effectively lost.

Regional bank holidays Region-only bank holidays also apply – for local regions these are: Friday, 9th June 9 (Murcia and La Rioja) and Monday, 9th October (Valencia).

INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL MATTERS What is an Unfunded Pension and might you have one? What can you do? Well, it's never an easy decision but one idea is to disentangle your pension pot from the main pot by transferring it to a QROPS (Qualified Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme) or Sipp (Self Invested Personal Pension). That way, your money becomes ring‐ fenced for you, normally with many less conditions and rules on how you can spend your own money, including leaving all of it to your heirs. If you think whatever you have been offered by your pension firm is derisory, give me a call and I will help you come to the RIGHT decision whilst advising you of your options. We are the professionals with 30 years experience, hence, why would you risk going anywhere else (and this includes your local Bank)? We are here to give you impartial, independent investment and financial advice (minimum investment just £20,000 / €25,000).

hose of you that were lucky enough (or so we thought) to have accumulated a pension pot (or indeed several) over your working life time, with the promise that you will get a good pension upon reaching 60, such as the equivalent of 2/3rds of your final salary, maybe in for a shock. Just like endowments, when these arrangements were devised by company pension planners they thought that rates of returns in the region of 9 & 10% per annum would continue forever. History had told us otherwise and accordingly, these 'promises to pay', are turning out to be hollow. The pension companies, whilst budgeting for the aforementioned annual returns, have found it increasingly difficult to obtain just a 5% annual return and have struggled for many years. This means that there is not enough in the pot to pay the promised amount – and this is what is called an “unfunded pension”. The 'promise to pay' is called a “Defined Benefit Pension”. Actuarial company Lane Clark & Peacock analysed information contained in the annual reports and accounts of FTSE 100 businesses, with Defined Benefit Pension shortfalls disclosed at 56 companies. You can see, therefore, that this pension shortfall applies to 56% of the top wealthiest businesses in the UK, so perhaps it follows that the problem is even bigger for the less wealthy companies i.e. the companies that you worked for ‐ did anyone reading this work for BHS? As it happens, BT (British Telecom) also have a pension deficit ‐ but I don't wish to worry anyone, so I will counter that by saying that it has also been stated that the BT balance sheet is strong enough to fund the pension deficit but shareholders will lose out.

WEEKLY EURO UPDATE Losses of two thirds of a yen, a quarter of a Swiss cent and nearly one US cent pushed the euro into the back end of the field: only the Northern Scandinavian crowns, the pound and the South African rand had a worse run. The euro did nothing particularly wrong: most of the economic data from Germany and pan-Euroland beat forecast. It was just that investors' attention was elsewhere. It was on the United States, where it continues to look likely that interest rates will go up in December. And it was on Britain, where the referendum result continues to cripple sterling. The only ray of sunshine in the pound's week was a suggestion that parliament would get a vote on the Brexit terms. That idea was quickly squashed when Brexit Minister, David Davis told parliament yes, they would get a say, but not a vote. It was game on again for the sterling bears as the Brexit minister gave the impression that the government is still intent on pursuing what has become known

as the "Hard Brexit"; an abrogation of all things EU, including the single market and free access for financial institutions. Their hand was strengthened by a story that the pound's post-referendum decline is pushing up prices not only for imported goods but also for domestically-produced Marmite. The US dollar was helped on its way by the minutes of last month's Federal Open Market Committee meeting, which appeared to leave a December rate increase on the table. Although only three of the FOMC's ten members voted to increase interest rates in September, more of them felt they should not wait too long to pull the trigger. "Several members judged that it would be appropriate to increase the target range for the federal funds rate relatively soon…" The semanticists can argue about the exact meanings of "several" and "relatively soon" but investors reckon they mean "more than five" and "before Christmas".

Prison requested over Briton’s land fraud The Granada Prosecution Service has asked for one year’s imprisonment for all three of the accused in as case of fraud committed against a British couple, where the accused purposely took advantage of the fact that they could not speak Spanish. The couple were sold a rural plot in Bácor, (see below) an annexe of Guadix, Granada which was supposed to have 22,000 square metres of surface area when the ‘cadastral certification’ was recorded as just 12,267 m2. According to the provisional written accusation by the Public Ministry, the fraud amounted to

108,060 euros. The crime occurred between 2002 and 2004 and the accused also face a request for special disqualification and fines of 1,800 euros for concocting a plan for personal enrichment in an illegal manner and in prejudice towards the British couple. One of them, of British nationality, was a manager of real estate sales office in El Contador, Almería, and was the first to contact the British couple, which resulted in their visit to Spain in November, 2012. During the visit another of the accused and of

Spanish nationality, proposed ‘buying the plot in two payments. The couple returned to England, after granting power of attorney to the accused responsible for the assessing of the sales contract with the two owners of the rural land. The price agreed for the first sale for the 10,000 m2 was 36,060 euros and the payment of two supposed commissions of 9,000 €. On the same date, they signed another contract with the option to buy the 12.000m of neighbouring land to the plot already purchased by the British couple, but according to the Prosecution Service ‘the total land amounted to only 12,267 square metres and not the 22,000 square metres the British thought they had obtained. When in July 2004 the British couple returned to Spain they liaised with the third accused person, who is of German nationality, who acted as an intermediary between them and the sellers of the second part of the estate with a price fixed at 72,000 euros of which 30,000 euros remained pending with commissions taken of 1.500 euros. In August of the same year, the notary in Baza published the first contract despite the fact that ‘in none of the stipulations in the deeds was the accurate size of 10,000 square metres recorded’. The purchasers sent the sellers another 30,000 euros in cash, which they believed completed the transaction. Only when the couple started to make building plans for their new home, according to the Prosecution, did they become aware they had been swindled over the size of the plot, and presented a legal complaint. The accused face the crime of seriousness fraud, with attenuating circumstance ‘because more than eight years had passed for reasons not attributable to the defendants’ specified the prosecutor who has established the facts which will be judged in the Second Section of the Granada Provincial Court.

Managing your money: How do I find a local IFA to help with my finances and what value can they add?

Y

ou may be perfectly comfortable planning your investments, but there are times when you may need professional guidance when there is a big financial decision. Without help from someone else, there is no guarantee that you'll end up with the best choice for you when it comes to finding the right investment or planning your retirement.

What does an Independent Financial Adviser, IFA, do? An IFA will check your entire financial situation, suggest a suitable financial strategy and then comb the entire market for the best financial products available to fit your needs. You will have to fill in some forms and be asked a lot of questions about what you want, your existing investments, and your attitude to risk. Only with that sort of information ‐ called a factfind ‐ can an adviser get a full picture of you. Not all advisers are independent.

What is the value of advice? An IFA can help with sorting out your pension and give investment advice on buying funds, regular savings schemes or just managing your cash efficiently. This is useful if you are not confident making your own financial decisions and need support of a professional, or if you simply don't have time to do it yourself. Setting up and monitoring an investment portfolio can be time consuming and difficult if you do not know much about the financial markets as you need to weigh up the risks and make sure you are getting the balance right in where your money is going. You also need to have the time and discipline to keep an eye on your portfolio to make sure it is heading in the right direction. Even if you feel you can manage all of the above, there may be occasions when an adviser is needed, such as handling the complicated tax issues around a big inheritance, or helping you understand what do when converting your pension into retirement income. Give me a call on 965 704 338 to book a free no‐obligation appointment in our Benijofar office. Alternatively, send an email to:

Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis) is a popular garden plant, grown for its scented flowers and for its groundcovering abilities in shady locations. They have clusters of small, white, bell-shaped flowers that hang from a strong reedy stalk. Many people do not realize how easy it is to grow Lily of the Valley indoors. Like paperwhites, Lily of the Valley can be grown in just 3 to 4 weeks indoors for much-needed middle of the winter fragrance, colour, and gardening enjoyment. They do not need any cold treatment or special care - just plant them and enjoy the flowers in a couple of weeks´ time. Plus, not only is growing Lily of the Valley indoors rewarding, but you can plant them up in 3-week intervals all winter and enjoy wonderfully fragrant flowers continually throughout the cold months. How to grow Lily of the Valley indoors: 1. Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis) come as dormant rhizomes also called "pips". When you purchase them each division should have at least one "pip" - a pinkish-white growing tip that looks like the eye of a potato. 2. Find a container that is at least 3 inches (7.5 cm) or more deep. Add high quality planting medium that will hold moisture well, but dry out a bit in between waterings. 3. Before planting, soak your pips in lukewarm water for a couple of hours. Just take them out of their bag and put them in a bucket or your sink. The pips will absorb water and should swell a bit and become hard. They are now ready to start growing almost immediately. 4. Before planting them up, if your pips

have roots, snip off the root tips by about a 1/2 inch (1.25 cm). This will activate the roots, encourage moisture uptake and jump start the growing process. 5. Planting your Lily of the Valley Cover the roots with mix until just the tips of the pips show, and plant them about 11/2 inches (3.75 cm) apart. 6. After planting, water liberally, soaking the soil. The plants will start to push new growth very quickly, usually in just a week. Keep the soil evenly moist since Lily of the Valley grow so rapidly they need water to keep up the fast pace of growth. 7. Place your pot in a cool area, 16° to 18° C is ideal, and make sure it gets lots of indirect sunlight. 8. When the plants flower, feel free to cut them for bouquets; it will not hurt the plants. 9. After the plants have flowered, leave the foliage in place - do not cut it off. If you want, you can transplant the plants to a shady area outdoors when the weather is mild. Lily of the Valley in the garden Lilies of the Valley are easy to grow under most conditions, though they do best in partial shade. Once they are well rooted they will spread indefinitely by means of the underground rhizomes. They are an excellent ground cover that lasts until frost sets in. Their outstanding feature is their sweet fragrance; their scent has even inspired perfumes. There may be a dozen or more blossoms per plant. The best way to appreciate the fragrance is to plant Lilies of the Valley along a walkway or in raised containers which you regularly pass by.

Once they are well established, they will form large clumps that need almost no care and live for many years. Garden catalogues and nurseries will either sell a complete potted plant, or a package of pips, from which you can start new plants. Use the second alternative,

pips, if possible, as they are much cheaper. All parts of the plant, including the berries, are highly poisonous. If the plant is touched or handled, hands should be washed before doing anything else. Marc Vijverberg

Animal welfare is improving…slowly In our edition the 30th August to the 5th September we reported on a dog that was causing concerns due to its difficulties walking and the lack of care it appeared to be receiving. Concerns had been raised about the situation and the fact that the dog continued to be left at its home in spite of denuncias to the police about its condition. Since the article was published the animal is now homed and doing well. It has ‘ataxia’ which is a neurological problem and results in a lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements. It isn’t treatable and the animal shakes constantly due to the problems with its nervous system. Conditions at the family home had not been ideal with the family experiencing personal difficulties. However, the dog was being fed and the evidence wasn’t sufficient at the time for the police to remove it. ‘Spain has some way to go yet when it comes to animal welfare,’ explains Councillor Carmen Morate. ‘Things are changing here but slowly.’ For example, a lawyer has been doing the rounds,speaking to local police officers and the Guardia Civil. The talks she has been delivering are about the processes for removing animals considered to be in danger. This will be new information

for many. Simply making a denuncia is not sufficient. The police require evidence that a crime is being committed. Animal cruelty and neglect is a crime in Spain but it is one that is not fully understood yet and the legal requirements to put it into practice are not well known. Carmen gives her advice. ‘If you do become aware of a neighbour’s animal, for example, that is being badly treated, then there is a process to follow. It cannot just be lifted from the home unless there is clear evidence of the maltreatment and that a law is being broken.’ In order to get the evidence, Carmel advises that you should take photos of the animal in distress and take theseto a vets. The vet will make a report which you should then take to an animal rescue organisation. Animalistas Torrevieja is one organisation that you might approach for them to help you. Using the photos, vet’s report and linking to the laws that are being broken, a denuncia can be made and an application for removal of the animal made to the court. ‘It’s not a straight forward process,’ explains Carmen. ‘But if we don’t start putting it into practice then it never will be.’ Suzanne O’Connell

From its interesting legacy of monuments, the superb Infantado Palace - a real symbol of the city - is outstanding. The origins of Guadalajara go back to the Roman period, with the foundation of the early centre of Arriaca. It was under Arab domination when this settlement came to be called Wad-al-Hayara (“Stony River”), a placename that developed into its modern name. Its importance as an urban centre increased in the 12th century, when Alfonso VII granted a charter to the city, which was later extended by the kings Fernando III and Alfonso X. Undoubtedly, however, the greatest historical mark was left by the Mendoza , who, in the middle of the 15th C. received the lordship of Guadalajara and made the city splendid for centuries. The rich history of the capital of La Alcarria has left an important architectural legacy in its old town. The pedestrianised Calle Mayor is the spine of the historic part of the provincial capital, with buildings of great historic value like the City Hall, the great houses of the Plaza de los Dávalos or the old palace of the Mendozas, whose internal courtyard is an excellent example of Platersque art. But the most important civil building in the capital of La Alcarria is the Infantado Palace, considered a real symbol of the city. The construction of the building, which nowadays houses the

Museum, the Provincial Archive and the Municipal Library, was begun by Juan Guas en 1480, commissioned by the second duke, Íñigo de Mendoza. It is a magnificent work in Isabelline style presided over by a superb Renaissance façade. Inside, it is structured around the Patio de los Leones (Courtyard of the Lions) which is made up of two galleries.Guadalajara preserves plenty of examples of religious architecture, like the Baroque Jesuit church of San Nicolás el Real, in which its reredos and a 15th. C. alabaster tomb are outstanding; the church of Santiago (14th C.), a GothicMudejar church with lovely chapels and a Baroque façade; and the procathedral of Santa María la Mayor, built and remodelled in the 17th century from an old Mudejar-style mosque. Other churches worth mentioning are the Chapel of la Piedad and the churches of Nuestra Señora la Antigua, San Ginés and Los Remedios.Cuisine and surroundingsIn one of the many inns in Guadalajara you can try roast lamb or kid, two of the culinary specialities that best represent the province. Also typical are trout, crayfish from the river and pork products, without forgetting "morteruelo serrano" (a paste for spreading on bread). La Alcarria honey has its own denomination of origin. Guadalajara is the capital of La Alcarria, a county immortalised in various literary works and where you can find places with interesting artistic legacies. Torija

has a castle that houses an ethnographic museum dedicated to La Alcarria; Hita, which its beautiful porticoed main square, is also famous as the home town of Juan Ruiz el Arcipreste, one of the most important Castilian authors of the Middle Ages. Near this place, you will find Jadraque, whose town centre streets lie at the foot of an imposing castle, and Cogolludo, with its Ducal Palace. In the north-east of the province, Sigüenza, a town declared a Historic-Artistic Site, is outstanding. A traditional episcopal seat, the town is presided over by its 12th century medieval castle, now turned into a Parador de Turismo. Another monument worth pointing out is the Gothic Cathedral (12th C.), with Romanesque elements, which houses the famous carving of the Doncel de Sigüenza in one of its chapels.Atienza, sanctuary of La Serranía, played an important role during the Middle Ages. Its town centre is presided over by the church of Santa María del Rey and by the castle. Also outstanding is the Plaza del Trigo, one of the most beautiful squares in the whole province.One of the most important protected areas in Castilla-La Mancha is the Hayedo de Tejera Negra Natural Park, in the northwestern corner of the province. At the gateway to the park is Majaelrayo, a small place forming part if the Black Architecture Route, known for its typical villages with stone houses and slate roofs.

‘You Can’t Be Serious’ is a weekly tongue in cheek look at the world through Bernie Comaskey’s eyes. With kind permission of the Westmeath Examiner. bernie.comaskey@gmail.com

The eyes have it... Last Sunday at Killulagh mass, Fr. Heaney told a story from the gospel, in which Jesus restored sight to a blind beggar. Had I been paying the required full attention, I would now remember the bugger – sorry, I mean beggar’s name. Father Heaney opened his sermon with a few words on the gift of sight and the importance of our eyes. He went on to expand on all we can learn about a person from looking into his or her eyes and what people tell us about themselves through their eyes. ‘A roving eye’, ‘A twinkle in the eye’, ‘A sly eye’, ‘A kind eye’ and so on. I took to thinking about this and do you know that just about everything can be learned about man or beast from their eye. Some of you may remember the column I did on Ellis Island and ‘the nine second medical’. It only took the immigration doctor nine seconds to tell if the immigrant was healthy, based solely on looking into the eye. The same thing applies with animals. It is many a case of ‘red water’ I detected in cows from observing the sunken eye, long before the water showed red. When buying a cow we would always look to see if she had a ‘kind eye’ or a ‘bullet eye’. The one with the ‘bullet eye’ would kick the stars out of the sky! Staying with animals for a moment; some jungle animals can actually hypnotize their prey if they succeed in making eye contact. In national school I remember Master Lawlor telling us that if you met a lion and you stared him, without looking

away, the lion would not touch you.(warning: do not try this in your own home!). ‘Eyes are the mirror of the soul.’ How easy it is to warm to a person with a bright sparkle in their eye. Those who study these sorts of things tell us we are correct in suspecting that the guy with the small squinty or shifty eye has an introverted and secretive nature. Look for eyes that sit firmly, whilst gazing steadily. This reflects a solid and a persevering nature and a person of stability. A wandering or shifty eye portends a nature given to unsettled and inconsistent habits. If the eyes slant upwards, that person is an opportunist. People with the opposite slant – downwards may be a little selfdeprecating and at everyone’s mercy by not being able to say no. I read somewhere that the late Princess Dianna and Michael Jackson share a feature of their eyes. They possess floating irises, under which the whites are visible. Experts say this indicates an inner turbulence – a person at odds with the world. Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln also shared these traits. Though spiritual in nature, they are hard to please or understand and have very high expectations of others. People with close-set eyes have a narrow opinion of the world at large. These people possess little forbearance; trivial matters will be blown out of proportion and they are likely to crack under stress. In contrast, the wide set eyed character is far more broadminded

and tolerant. A roving and unsteady eye, one incapable of looking at you, is an attempt to mask inner intentions. But be careful to be fair here, as sometimes a shy or discouraged person will reflect a similar eye. You see, (pun intended) it is all in the eye: stern, cold, cruel, soft, warm or endearing. The ‘look’ of the eye cannot be explained or taught, but it is something we instinctively look for when we meet people in various situations. Even the colour of the eye has certain characteristics – if you are to believe American research – where they are high on this sort of thing and perhaps low on ‘cop on’ and common sense. Deep green eyed people are highly energized and very inventive. Men and women of genius often possess this colour of eye. Grey eyes reveal a high degree of intelligence and imagination, but the bad news is that passion may be less pronounced. Deep blue eyes and you are likely to be highly sexed, yet gentle and sensitive and enjoy flirting with the opposite sex. Now they tell me! There was my excuse if only I knew! ‘I couldn’t help myself, Father ..; it’s the eyes you see!! One last thing about the eyes: The wink! Look at all you can say and do with a wink. Without the eyes there would be no wink. Pity you cannot see me winking at you now!

If there is a smile in your heart, your eyes will show it

Recruitment day for the Samaritans

Alicante murder arrest

A man has been detained in Alicante for what police are describing as the ‘assassination’ of his 89 year old aunt. The National Police detained a 40 year old man who had walked into the Central District Police Station to confess that he had strangled his 89 year out aunt to death in her home in Calle Pintor Aparicio in the city centre. The man confessed he had been living with her body for several days. Agents from the Violence and Delinquency Group of the Provincial Brigade of the Judicial Police went to number 7 Calle Pintor Aparicio, a seven-storey building where the aunt and nephew had been living together. Once the body had been found, around 7pm, the discovery was communicated to the Scientific Police and the judicial commission. After the agents inspected the home, they took the man into custody using a camouflaged car to take him to the cells in the Provincial Police Station. A judicial order was issued by the duty judge in Instruction Court 1 in Alicante, and the judicial secretary arrived at the crime scene with the duty forensic doctor and just before 9pm the body was removed. First indications are that the woman had been strangled, and an autopsy was scheduled for the following day in the Alicante Legal Medicine Institute

so that the official cause of death could be confirmed. After the removal of the body, the Police continued their search and taped off the premises to stop evidence being lost. Neighbours in the street where the victim, identified as Isabel A. was strangled said her nephew had ‘problems’. They said Isabel had been living family members until some three years ago when they died, and then it was decided her nephew should return from Norway to look after her. ‘He had separated from his Norwegian wife and came to live with his aunt as he had no work,’ they told investigators. Residents in the same block said the 40 year old had a drinking problem and appeared to have no friends, he was abusing his aunt and stealing her money and the only time he took her out was to get more cash, they claimed. Isabel, however, was a lovely person ‘she was very kind and we loved her… Popular in the district, we will miss her’.

If you’ve ever thought about the possibility of volunteering to help the Samaritans then now is your opportunity to find out more about it. The Samaritans are holding a recruitment day on 2nd November between 11am and 2pm at their headquarters in Punta Marina Commercial Centre. The centre is just off the Punta Prima roundabout on the N332. There are a number of roles available from being a duty ‘listener’ on their 900 525 100 free phone line to helping out for a few hours in their charity shop. Other roles include the face-to-face consultations at the newly opened drop-in centre, help with administration, delivering publicity materials or just running errands. Whatever your skills and interests there is likely to be a role suited to you. Applications are welcome from fluent English speaking adult volunteers of any nationality. References are required for listener volunteers and for this important and sensitive role you will also need to provide references so that some background checks can be made. Training and mentoring is provided and listeners are given constant support. Shop volunteers also receive

awareness training and are fully briefed to handle people in distress and direct them to the duty listening team. Many callers make a first tentative approach for help by browsing in the shop and getting to know the staff. Although volunteers are not paid, they can claim expenses and receive a monthly newsletter, invitations to group social occasions, AGM and other team meetings. Perhaps most important, by volunteering for the Samaritans you join a team of caring and dedicated people who can become friends for life. If you are more comfortable raising money than being a listener or centreworker then you might like to help out with the Friends of Samaritans who organise a number of fundraising events. More information is available by visiting the website www.samaritansinspain.com or by contacting Jane Troubridge, Branch Manager in Torrevieja at janeatsams@outlook.comfor an informal chat. Ideally, coming along on the 2nd November will provide you with opportunity to ask any questions and find out exactly which role might suit you. Suzanne O’Connell

British teacher arrested as cyber sexual predator The National Police has detained an internet sexual predator in Barcelona who has been fleeing British Justice and is on the most wanted list for pretending to be a minor on social networks to obtain photos of sexual content. According to the National Police Force in a statement released recently, in 2015 the detained man was a professor at a Sussex academy, and created several profiles on the internet faking his age and targeting 12-15 year olds to obtain pornographic images. He would gain the confidence of pupils his own classes without them realising who he was and would then move on towards more deviant actions, demanding nudity and the showing of private parts for sexual simulation. He was arrested on a European Arrest and Deliver Warrant after being monitored. He fled to Spain at the start of this year and it was established that his first port of call was Barcelona where he was living under a false name and would often change residence in an attempt to hide. The detention was carried out by the Organised Crime Section of the Judicial Police Provincial Brigade in Barcelona in collaboration with the Fugitives Group of the General Commissariat of Judicial Police with the support with the British National Crime Agency. He is charged with multiple counts of child sex abuse.

Time to prepare in 10, 9, 8, 7, 6...1 Rebecca Serwotka – Your favourite local property expert, of Inmobiliaria Real Estate Agents in Ciudad Quesada. Preparation is key to everything successful in life, and the same goes for selling your house. Now that the heat of summer is passing, it’s cool enough to see to those minor repairs. You know, the ones that can either make or break that first impression, when your future buyer pulls up to your front door. So I’ve prepared a nine point checklist for you to make sure we send our buyers a very welcoming message upon their arrival. The first item on your checklist, is the doorbell. Does it work? Nothing shows a buyer that the home is well taken care of, than the sound of a crisp doorbell. Second item to check, is the entrance gate. Is the paint peeling? Can you see rust? Don’t worry; nothing that a can of paint can’t fix. If you don’t have time to paint the whole gate or money to employ a professional, just do a quick touch up. Next on your list, item number three, is the landscaping, between the gate and the front door. Walking through the gate should be the most inviting experience your buyer feels. "Welcome Home," should literally be felt with every footstep in the approach to the front door. Removing weeds from in between tiles can also be a quick fix. You’ll be amazed at what a huge improvement it will be. Item number four...the front door! Does is stare you in the face everyday begging for a drink of varnish? . This time of

year is perfect for re-staining wood, as the sun is a little weaker. It will prove to be a valuable and time worthy job. Number five. Once the front door has been opened, you want the buyer to feel the wow factor. If you have some, out of the ordinary taste for wall colourings, then now is the time to change it back to a more neutral tone. If in doubt, white always works best when your home is on the market. Number six is for leaks. The only noise we Real Estate Agents want to hear when showing a house, are the ooohs and ahhhhhs of a buyer swooning over the many wonderful features it offers. Dripping taps and water running through toilets are noises no buyer wants to hear. Item number seven, light bulbs! Showing a house is an art form, and we need to illuminate every room in the house. Even with the shutters all open! Make sure all bulbs are not just in the light fitting, but actually work too. Number eight - oil those hinges! No one likes to have squeaky doors and they’re easy to fix. So get your oil can out and stop that annoying sound! Number nine, time to shine! There may be some places in the house that need a little attention, but that you are so used to seeing, you forget to clean them – like doors. There are a lot of choices out there for a buyer. Give them every reason to say, "I’ll be back" and not, "I’m a celebrity, get me out of here!"

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor Your article in this weeks Costa Blanca People states that Spain’s Foreign Secretary Jose Garcia Margallo is meeting Boris Johnson to sort out healthcare payments. Mr Johnson said that he is hoping for a Canadian style system where 99% is of healthcare payments are waived. Perhaps Mr Johnson is not aware that the UK already pay Spain 3500 euros per ex-pat patient on the Spanish NHS pa. I would have thought Snr Margallo was also aware of this and do not understand why he is demanding payment as if none was being made, and not ensuring the continuance of payments Why should this change? We were told by Mr Cameron when he resigned outside 10 Downing Street that established circumstances and residency would not affect us. If this was not true then am I being naive in believing him? I therefore ask the question that just because the UK is leaving the EU why would the British Government reduce the established payments? If they can pay 99% why can’t they pay 100%? I dread to think what would happen to the UK NHS if vast numbers of ex-pats returned home. It would be overwhelmed. From an economic point of view it surely must make sense to continue making the full payments to ensure we all stay here. All I can say is god help us with Boris doing the negotiating. I wouldn’t trust him to make a profit selling oranges on a market stall. Regards Tony Dean

at, and verbally abusing our two little girls. Since then, the woman has been to court for aggression to minors and we thought that would be the end of it (copies of court papers can be provided). Unfortunately, things have gone from bad to worse. We had to have CCTV installed because the man was harassing our children every time they played outside, slamming his door and gate in temper when he could hear them playing, banging on the walls if they were dancing, running, crying etc. whilst indoors. I recorded 4 separate incidents on my mobile but finally decided to install a security camera. Recently the woman has sworn at my son and the man has sworn at my husband. They don’t like the camera as it records their foul-mouthed, drunken behaviour. They have a ‘vado’ outside their house yet they don’t use it to park their car, instead they take up an additional TWO spaces on the public road. Their arrogance is astounding. He pretends to be a responsible dog owner by carrying a plastic bag, however the bag comes back every single time unused…he just leaves the dog mess for others to step over. It’s not just us they have a problem with. We are in touch with the previous tenants and they behaved in exactly the same way to their children, and they used to bang on the walls if another tenant wore high-heeled shoes. If they want to live in silence they shouldn’t live in a family-friendly town. They really are the neighbours from hell. Sincerely, Name and address supplied

Dear Editor Some time ago our neighbours started swearing

Dear Editor The Royal Oak hosted a coffee morning for

McMillan nurses on 30th and raised 950.00 euros. Many thanks to all who donated. Dear Editor I have just read the report on the inquest of the drowning of Julie Dudhill on a beach in Alicante. My condolences go to her husband, as it was a very tragic and sad accident. However, the article tends to put all the blame on the life guards and no mention is made of the fact that the red flag was flying and the lifeguards had warned them that the sea wasn't safe for swimming. I have seen this happen so many times - red flag flying and bathers ignoring the requests from the lifeguards to stay out of the water. This has resulted in them having to go and rescue many after they have gotten into difficulties It is rare for lifeguards not to react when someone is in difficulties. However if they reacted as Mr Dudhill says, I can understand him being angry and upset. The point I am making is - all facts should be reported when printing an article. This gives lifeguards a bad name and as a general rule they do a very good job and have saved many lives Pat Pritchard La marina urbanisation Dear Editor Fund Raiser In Aid Of The Victims of The Fires In Javea On Tuesday 11th October, a suberb night of fundraising was had at Restaurant Catorce. Everyone will have read about the recent events of the fires in and around the Javea area.

People in the area have lost their homes, animals or livelihood whilst the fire services have lost a lot of their equipment trying to dampen down and stop the fires from spreading. Martyn and Paul at Catorce were contacted by their friends in Benidorm (Duo Zodiac) who were having various fund raisers in some of the venues in Benidorm where they perform. Thinking it was a great idea and cause, Martyn and Paul decided that they would continue that line in Benijofar. Firstly, they found out where donations were being sent and how the money was to be distributed. Secondly, they managed to get the fantastic entertainer Andy Jones on board who sent messages out to performers asking if they were prepared to give up some of their valuable time for the cause. Andy managed to get 4 other entertainers on board. All of the entertainers gave up their time for free. Staff at Catorce gave their time for free, family and friends gave their time selling raffle tickets and food was provided by the Restaurant free of charge. All of the money raised from ticket sales therefore went direct to the cause. Over 31 prizes were donated for the raffle. Martyn and Paul would like to thank everyone who gave their time and support to this great cause. Their generosity will be greatly appreciated by all concerned. A massive thank you goes out to Andy Jones who put the show together and coordinated and compared the show during the course of the evening. Huge thanks also to those who provided entertainment - Roxy, No Limit, Terry Morgan and Melissa Jade.

With ticket sales and raffle sales, the customers managed to raise 894 euros. Catorce also gave a percentage of the bar takings pushing the total raised to 1000.00 euros. The money has been passed to Grant a Wish.es in Javea who is cordinating all donations and they will pass this on to all of the victims affected by the fires.

Park volunteers back at work ■ SUZANNE O’CONNELL suzanne@costablancapeople.com

Following on from the summer season, the Volunteers of La Mata natural park are once more back on duty. The Asociación de las Rutas y Caminos de la Sal had their first meeting on Saturday 8th October and are now ready to begin helping to preserve the beautiful natural lake and surrounding area. Their first meeting focussed on what’s been happening over the summer and

initiatives has been repairing fifteen nesting boxes which are now ready to be installed. The boxes are meant to encourage small birds to nest and make the park their home. It is hoped that these birds will help reduce the number of processionary caterpillars which cause damage to the pine trees as well as being a danger to dogs. The volunteers have also helped to restore and replace the signs around the park which encourage the public to take care of and respect the environment. Plans for the coming season include introducing bird feeding stations to

The volunteers outside the park information centre what’s now planned for the coming year. The volunteers work according to a rota, helping to supervise the public in the park as well as behind the scenes. They are encouraged to send incident reports which are given to the park staff and detail problems such as dogs off leads and people entering the water. One of their most important recent

encourage birds to visit and the introduction of a small, rare fish into the Torrevieja lake. Other events to look out for include the guided tours around the lake, a photo exhibition and talks on the different habitats that can be found there. It looks like it’s going to be a busy season for the volunteers.

Oh What a Night! Simon Weston CBE (RIGHT) was in town recently when he presented his one man show ‘An Evening with…’ to a packed audience at the Olympia Restaurant, Mil Palmeras. Simon, who is regarded as one of the very best speakers on the UK circuit, showed his worth as he captivated over 350 people who were there to pay homage to the Falklands Veteran. The former Welsh Guardsman was supported on stage by one of the Costa Blanca’s foremost young talents, Rebecca Holt, who, despite her tender years, has also been a longtime champion of the Royal British Legion, organisers of the evening’s event. And it was Rebecca who got the evening underway with one of her signature acts, a tribute to the war years for which she was dressed in the uniform of an ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association) L/Cpl. She gave a masterly performance featuring many of the period hits that were especially well received by the enthusiastic audience. As Rebecca brought part one of the evening to a close she was pleasantly surprised when Simon Weston then appeared on stage to present her with a jeweled poppy brooch,

as a thank you for the years of support that she has provided to The RBL in Spain. After a short introduction by Branch President, Pastor Keith Brown, there followed a rapturous reception for Simon Weston which surprised even the man himself as he quickly realised the esteem in which he is quite clearly held on the Costa Blanca. Simon then spent over an hour recounting his days, from the fateful invasion of the Falkland Islands in 1982 that so dramatically changed his life, through the 90 or more operations and medical procedures he has undergone, his family life, experiences, and his relationship with the royals, throwing in many anecdotes and amusing stories along the way, all the while radiating optimism, courage and strength. His irrepressible humour and infectious enthusiasm was clearly visible as he had his Mil Palmeras admirers enraptured for almost an hour before switching from direct delivery as he then provided the audience with an opportunity for questions and answers, his final message being one of sheer determination and acceptance of whatever difficulties you are likely to meet along the way. “The only obstacles to achieving one’s targets and successes are

Simon Weston those you create for yourself,” he said, his words never failing to inspire. As Simon concluded his presentation the audience rose to their feet in applause, clearly demonstrating the admiration in which the Falklands war hero is still held on the Costa Blanca. Rebecca then returned to the stage for her second spell, this time following a more modern theme, Simon continued his evening’s work where he was in great demand to sign almost 50 purchased copies of his autobiography. He then spent over an hour meeting many of the Mil Palmeras crowd before the evening was finally brought to a close. The event was organised by the Orihuela Costa Branch of the Royal British Legion and supported by the generous sponsorship of Avalon, Currencies Direct and Sanchez Butron Solicitors with profits donated to the annual poppy appeal. More information on the work of the RBL locally can be found at http://branches.britishlegion.org.uk/branc hes/orihuela-costa. The Orihuela Costa Branch meets on the third Thursday of each month at the Olympia Restaurant, Mil Palmeras starting at 7.30pm.

Britain’s Body Image Secrets with Anne Robinson BBC1 – 9.00pm

Anne Robinson presents a series delving into different areas of contemporary British life. Anne looks good for a woman of 72, but she works hard at it. But aren't younger generations under even more pressure to look good than ever before? She meets make-up addicts who spend more time getting ready for a night out than on the night itself, gym obsessives in pursuit of Instagram followers, and a young man going under the knife in the hope that he will be 'perfect' one day. Anne

wants to know why we're all so obsessed with our appearance and what's wrong with being ugly anyway? As a counterpoint to those who are obsessed with their looks she meets some people who very definitely aren't - from naturists who let it all hang out, to the comedian speaking out against body shaming, to actress Miriam Margolyes who tries to coax Anne to eat more than a lettuce leaf over lunch.

Hunt for the Arctic Ghost Ship – Channel 4 – 8.00pm In September 2014 a multi-million-dollar state-of-theart expedition made the astonishing discovery of the Victorian ship HMS Erebus, intact and upright on the Arctic sea floor. It’s the culmination of a 150-year-old mystery and has been hailed as the find of the century. This Secret History documentary has exclusive access behind the scenes of this momentous expedition. The story unfolds in the freezing Arctic, on the search vessels on the 2014 expedition, from their battle with heavy sea-ice that threatened to stop the search entirely, to the dramatic chain of events that led to their historic discovery.

Spanish flag will fly in Gibraltar says Foreign Minister Spain’s Foreign Minister, José Manuel GarcíaMargallo, is convinced that Gibraltar authorities will start negotiating a joint sovereignty agreement with Spain in March of next year, when Britain begins its formal exit from the European Union. The minister made this assertion last week, after hearing Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo say that Spain will “never get its hands” on the British Overseas Territory. Speaking at the Fourth Commission of the United Nations General Assembly, which deals with decolonisation issues, Picardo had stated: “No way, Jose! …[Spain] will never get its hands on our Rock,” in reply to a suggestion by the Spanish ambassador to the UN that co-sovereignty would be beneficial to Gibraltar’s economy once it is left out of the EU. “Not my hands – I will put up the flag, and much sooner than Picardo thinks,” said García-Margallo on state broadcaster RTVE’s radio program ‘La noche en 24 Horas’. The Spanish minister predicted that this flag could go up within the next four years. “They will understand that the sooner a solution is found, the better,” he said. “The current solution is disappearing, and a new one must be found,” he added, in reference to the Trilateral Forum for Dialogue, a three-way platform for talks between Spain, the UK and Gibraltar that has been on hold for years. “They’ve even studied the Greenland solution, and they will start to see a formula,” insisted GarcíaMargallo, noting that Gibraltarians overwhelmingly voted against leaving the EU. When Brexit becomes effective, Gibraltarians will

have two choices: “Being British outside the European Union or Spanish-British within the EU.” Spain’s offer includes letting Gibraltar access the EU domestic market, tearing down the border – la Verja – between both territories, granting residents dual citizenship, and letting them preserve their self-governing institutions. Spain and the UK would jointly manage issues of defense, foreign affairs, border control, immigration and asylum. García-Margallo also underscored the benefits for workers on both sides of the border – not just Gibraltarians but the Andalusians living in Campo de Gibraltar (Cádiz).

Age old dispute Spain claims sovereignty over the Rock, which stands on the southernmost tip of the Iberian peninsula, but it has been a British Overseas Territory since the signing of the Treaty of Utrecht 300 years ago. The 1.2-kilometre frontier between Spain and Gibraltar was closed by dictator General Francisco Franco for most of the 1970s, and remained shut for several more years after his death in 1975. The UK government has made clear that it will not negotiate over sovereignty as long as Gibraltar’s people want to remain British. Under the previous Socialist Party administration, Spain softened its stance, discussing other issues without bringing up sovereignty, while agreeing to give Gibraltar a voice in any talks with Britain over its status. But the conservative Popular Party government of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has taken a harder line regarding its claim on the territory.

King to hold more government talks Spain’s King Felipe VI will begin a new round of talks with political leaders on 24th October, the acting government confirmed last week. These talks are aimed at establishing whether any candidate stands a chance of becoming the next prime minister – a position that will be decided at a subsequent investiture vote in Congress. The political calendar mandates that this session must be held before 31st October, or the country will automatically go to a new national election. If so, it will be the third in a year, and polls are forecasting low turnout and a similarly fragmented outcome as Spaniards become increasingly tired of their bickering politicians. If the monarch’s talks with party leaders suggest there is enough support for any one candidate, the investiture session could be held on 26th or 27th October, with a second run-off vote held on 28th or 29th October, just in time to meet the deadline. In practice, the only politician who stands a chance is Mariano Rajoy of the Popular Party (PP), who has been heading a caretaker government since the first inconclusive election of 20th December, 2015. So far, Rajoy has been unable to attract enough support from other parties to get himself reinstated, leading to a 10-month stalemate. However, the recent resignation of the head of the Socialist Party (PSOE) means that the main opposition group might be open to an abstention at the investiture vote, a move that would effectively deliver the position to Rajoy. The Socialists are still split between those who favor abstention and those who oppose it. If the latter

prevail, Rajoy would lose the investiture vote and a new national election would be inevitable. Congressional speaker Ana Pastor met with the king recently and announced that she would speak to party leaders later that day. On 20th October, she will send Felipe VI a list of the representatives who will meet with him on 24th and 25th October. Meanwhile, acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is getting used to the idea that even if he succeeds in being reinstated after a 10-month stalemate, his Popular Party (PP) will need to change the way it does politics. And he is conveying that fact to his fellow party members. Last weekend, Rajoy told a meeting of senior PP officials that even in the event of continuing in office for a second term, the new government will have to show “patience and humility” because it will be very much alone. The new fragmented scenario that emerged out of the 20th December elections, thanks to the appearance of the left-leaning anti-austerity Podemos and the centre-right Ciudadanos, and then again at the repeat vote of 26th June, means that the PP does not have the kind of absolute majority it has enjoyed in the past. Nor has it managed to strike any enduring deals with other parties that might ensure stability during the legislative term. Instead, a hypothetical Rajoy administration would have to reach voteby-vote arrangements in Congress with opposition parties, some of which, like the Socialist Party (PSOE) and Podemos, are battling each other for hegemony over the political left while dealing with

internal battles of their own. In the new, uncertain scenario unfolding in Spanish politics, Rajoy’s chief strategy seems to be to tread lightly and try not to put his foot in it. He has already told PSOE leaders to take their time to decide on the issue that is ripping the main opposition party apart: whether to vote against Rajoy at an investiture session in Congress, or whether to abstain, thereby passively delivering the government to him. Even if abstention wins the day, the PSOE has already warned that it will not enter into a governing coalition with the PP. Alternately, if the Socialists vote down Rajoy at the investiture vote, the country will automatically go to a third election in December. Meanwhile Ciudadanos, which has alternately attempted governing deals with the PSOE and the PP, will also refuse to enter into a coalition with Rajoy in the light of the Gürtel corruption trial that got underway last week. The PP is hoping for favorable

rulings that might convince Ciudadanos leader Albert Rivera to back the conservatives sometime in the future.

Open to collaboration Rajoy and his team have been reiterating that they remain open to all types of collaboration “with the PSOE and other parties.” “I think all three parties have a lot in common,” said Pablo Casado, the conservative spokesman, about the PP, PSOE and Ciudadanos. For now, however, Ciudadanos leader Rivera keeps insisting that his party will not govern with Rajoy because of his association with Gürtel and other highprofile corruption cases like the executive credit cards at Caja Madrid, which is also at the trial stage. “If there is no renewal within the PP we will not enter into a coalition government,” warned Ciudadanos vicesecretary general José Manuel Villegas. “Rajoy is a master of maintaining the status quo.”

TERRORIST ARRESTS IN NORTHERN SPAIN Counter-terrorism police in the northern Spanish cities of Gijón and San Sebastián have arrested two suspects described as being “fully integrated” into the so-called Islamic State jihadist militant group (ISIS). The suspect arrested in Gijón is a Spanish citizen of Moroccan origin, while the man detained in San Sebastián is a resident of Spain, also with a Moroccan background, according to the Interior Ministry. The two men had joined ISIS voluntarily, making this decision public on social media and Internet forums, according to the ministry. Both were allegedly involved in the brainwashing and recruiting of new members for the jihadist group and had promoted the carrying out of terrorist acts in the name of ISIS. The suspect detained in Gijón is said to have sworn allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr alBaghdadi on social media and to have asked all of his followers to do likewise. He reportedly based his operations in the city and employed sophisticated security methods including the use of encrypted virtual phone lines to avoid police detection when communicating with other ISIS members. The man arrested in San Sebastián was allegedly in close contact with radical elements in Guipúzcoa in Spain’s Basque Country. His chief activities included the recruitment and indoctrination of recruits among vulnerable people. The content posted online by the two suspects included ISIS propaganda videos designed to appeal to a mass audience. But the two men also posted violent and explicit videos as part of the socalled Islamic State’s online presence.

Body of missing British hiker found in Spain The body of a missing British man who went missing during a 2,250 km trek from London to Gibraltar has been found in Spain. Former Leicester councillor David Oldman was found by hunters in La Concepcion, near Almeria, at around 11am. Relatives of the 66 year old were informed that afternoon and a postmortem is was due to take place the following day. Mr Oldman was last seen on 9th June whilst trekking from HuercalOvera in Almeria to the nearby town of Albox. Concerns grew when he failed to ring his mum or board his flight home a few days later. His family made a series of pleas on social media for help finding him, but an intensive fourweek search had to be scaled back in July after it came up with nothing. Mr Oldman had been walking from his hometown of London to Gibraltar in stages. The part-time librarian, who was described as an ‘experienced and very fit walker’, would fly back home between each stage. His niece said before the body was discovered: “He is a very experienced walker and was following a planned route from Gibraltar House in London to Gibraltar. “This is what he does – this is his holiday and he is very fit and good at what he does.”

The raids carried out last week come after terrorist attacks in Europe that have demonstrated the danger posed to national security by undercover jihadists. Spanish security forces have arrested 150 Islamic radicals since the country’s terrorism threat level was raised to four in 2015. Of those arrests, 120 have taken place within Spain, while 30 took place in other countries with the cooperation of Spanish security personnel.

Increased risk Last week’s raids also come a month after Spanish counter-terrorism authorities issued an alert about “the increase in mentions of our country” in recent propaganda material produced by ISIS, including text documents, videos and graphs. Potential targets mentioned in this increased chatter included crowded areas, police officers, Christians, Jews and homosexuals. Spain is another significant center of Islamist activity on the continent: 45 percent of the jihadists arrested in Spain since 2013 had Spanish nationality. In early 2015, the Popular Party and the Socialist Party put aside their differences to sign an antiterrorist pact aimed at fighting jihadism in Spain. Under that law, anyone convicted of carrying out a terrorist attack or any other violent crime can receive a life sentence with a review for release after serving 35 years. That pact also calls for 20year sentences for anyone convicted of supplying weapons to terrorists, or 10 years for those who fund terror networks. Spaniards who join foreign radical groups can also receive up to five years in prison.

Happy thoughts With October marking International Mental Health Day and statistics showing that if we don’t act urgently, by 2030 depression will be the leading global illness; this week The Costa Blanca People takes a look at stress and anxiety. Asks why we feel anxious and what can we do about it… Dry mouth, feeling sick, racing heart... most of us are familiar with a state of anxiety – although it is usually just a fleeting reaction to a stressful or ¬frightening situation. But for many it’s a permanent state. And in 2016 an anxiety epidemic is sweeping the developed world, wrecking relationships, careers and family lives. Growing numbers of us are finding our everyday worries and stresses escalating to levels of anxiety that can leave us panicked and fearful. And it seems anxiety knows no boundaries when it comes to age, gender or circumstance with film stars, pop stars and well-known personalities opening up about their struggles with mental health issues. Stephen Buckley, head of information at mental health charity Mind, says: “Anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems in the UK and across Europe– it’s thought that around one in 20 people will experience anxiety each year. “Many people wait too long before seeing their GP and they discount social anxiety as just day-to-day stress. “But it’s very important to seek help as soon as possible if you feel like your anxiety is interfering with your ability to do the things you normally would.”

So what’s behind this epidemic? Experts believe the speed and pressures of modern-day life are partly to blame for the rise in tension so many of us feel. Chartered psychologist Dr Angharad Rudkin says: “There is a general trend that average is no longer good enough. “All of us feel the need to be exceptional, whether that’s as parents or employees, and this spreads into leisure time because we ask who has run the longest and fastest, or who has been on the best holidays. “Previously, as adolescents, we had only our peer group and Just 17 magazine to compare ourselves with. “Now, young people are exposed to apparent perfection all the time on social media. “They haven’t yet got the ability to critically analyse these images in order to understand that this isn’t real life and this is not a good benchmark to compare themselves with. “As parents we often forget that our children pick up on even the subtlest messages. “If you’re running around and tearing your hair out with anxiety then there’s a good chance your child will be anxious too, however much you tell them that there’s nothing to worry about.”

Who is affected? Anxiety has risen in all age groups with each facing its own pressures and fears. Dr Rudkin says: “Children tend to be anxious about threats such as burglars, tsunamis and monsters.

“And as they move towards adolescence, beyond 10 years old, they can start to get more anxious about friends, being accepted and being popular. “As they get into adolescence, anxieties develop around performance, being good enough and being special. “Adults’ anxiety tends to be around physical safety as well as the demands of intense juggling of tasks each day, which leads to enormous stress which can then feed anxiety. “Older adults fear physical illness and ¬loneliness. Fear tends to increase in old age and seemingly carefree adults can become really quite anxious as they feel more frail and vulnerable, and are often less supported.” It’s the millennials – those born after 1980 – who are under more pressure than other age groups, says psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos. Twentysomethings feel that they have to be perfect in absolutely everything they do. Millennials have higher anxiety than any generation before.

The gender gap While women suffer anxiety more often than men, both genders experience and manage the problem in distinctly different ways. Polls conducted on behalf of Mind in 2015 found that women were three times more likely than men to have cried because of anxiety in the last week and were twice as likely as men to feel better for having cried. When it came to dealing with anxiety

at work, 36 percent of women chose to hide in the toilets while only 15 percent of men did the same. Half of women surveyed said they would eat more if they felt anxious compared to two-fifths of men. Instead, 39 percent would drink alcohol compared to 29 percent of women.

How to get help If all this makes you feel anxious, the good news is that there are many treatments available to help combat the modern day scourge. Dr Antonis Kousoulis, deputy director of the Mental Health Foundation, says: “There is an epidemic of anxiety, to an extent. “And the facts and figures tell us it’s on the rise. But there is a range of help available.

www.costablancapeople.com

“Cognitive behavioural therapy is the most common treatment. “It’s a talking therapy and part of it helps you start to understand yourself better and why you might behave in a certain way. “Self-management can be very important. Recovery can happen with guided self-help, including online options, and the NHS can help with that. “Another treatment is mindfulness, which is derived from meditation but doesn’t have any religious connotations. "It helps you to come to terms with your feelings and teaches you to live for the moment. “Acupuncture might work for some but we do not have much evidence to support this. “Medication is sometimes used too. There is no anxiety-specific drug which can mean being prescribed with antidepressants. “They will help some people but they are not the first option because of the potential for side effects.” Whatever the reasons are for anxiety, or the age or sex of the sufferer, the answer from mental health experts is uniformly clear: don’t suffer alone and seek help. Dr Papadopoulos adds: “Anxiety can take away the flavour of life. “If you experience it, please seek help to fix it. There’s no point saying, ‘Oh, it’ll be fine’ – you wouldn’t say that if you found a lump. “Anxiety is something we can solve.”

British holidaymaker critical after drowning A British holidaymaker is in a critical condition with possible brain damage after almost drowning in Spain during first holiday abroad. The man suffered a heart attack following a sea rescue. Mike Knight, 49, from Manchester, had to be rescued by lifeguards after he got into difficulties while swimming off the coast of Magaluf. Mike, who was on his first holiday abroad, had a heart attack after he was pulled to shore on the holiday island of Mallorca. The father-of-seven was rushed to Inca Hospital where he is now breathing through a tracheotomy and has pneumonia. Doctors are also concerned he may have suffered some brain damage. His brother Chris Knight, 57, said the holiday had been a present for Mike’s 50th. “It was something he had been looking forward to,” he said, “He had always wanted to go abroad and had never flown before. “He was loving the holiday and was telling me that it was red hot. He was in his element.” He added: “Whatever happens, he will never be the same again. It’s heartbreaking.” The family are now in a row with Mike’s insurance company, who are refusing to pay out because he had alcohol in his system. They have started an urgent appeal on Just Giving in a bid to raise €14,000 to take him home. Visit www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/vic ky–knight-102 to make a donation.

Spain sued over wrongful imprisonment A Dutchman who spent 12 years in jail for unjust rape conviction ‘suing Spain for €6m’ after DNA proved it was committed by a British man. Romano van der Dussen was jailed in 2003 for allegedly attacking three women in Fuengirola and spent years in prison for a crime he did not commit. The convictions were quashed last year after DNA evidence revealed the culprit as Briton Mark Dixie, who had been living there at the time of attacks. Dixie is already serving a life sentence in the UK for the rape and murder of 18-year-old Sally Anne Bowman in 2005. Van der Dussen said he is seeking compensation for ‘damage caused’ and for being ‘wrongly deprived’ of his freedom. He always maintained his innocence and is still contesting two lesser charges of robbery and sexual assault, which were not overturned in the appeal court. Van der Dussen is soon to release ‘My Spanish Nightmare’, an autobiography detailing his ordeal.

There are many differing attitudes to breakfast, our first meal of each day. The word breakfast means exactly that, we are breaking our fast as our last meal was probably many hours before. Some people never eat breakfast first thing, some eat it rather later at mid morning whilst others have a hearty start to the day. My training has always taught me that eating breakfast is important for the

following reasons; It helps to bring the blood sugar to a normal healthy level - thereby regulating the release of insulin It helps to start to body’s digestion It helps the body to have a routine, which is good for it It normally helps the bowels and therefore the body’s eliminating process. So that leads us to what foods are best to have for breakfast?

CostaBlancaPeople October 18th - 24th 2016

Breaking your Fast… Eggs. They are full of protein help you feel fuller for longer and help you to eat fewer calories Greek Yogurt which again is high in protein, helps to reduce appetite and some types contain healthy bacteria. Coffee. This contains caffeine which helps to lift mood and improve our mental awareness and performance. Oatmeal. Great breakfast food and helps to reduce cholesterol and if used

with skimmed milk is even better. Nuts. Tasty satisfying and nutritious and is thought to help reduce heart disease and improve blood sugar. Cottage Cheese is a fantastic breakfast food, high in protein, which promotes feelings of fullness and increases the metabolic rate. Flaxseeds are incredibly healthy and high in fibre. They may also improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar

levels. Whether or not you eat breakfast is a personal choice but if you do start by fuelling your body with these healthy and nutrient dense foods.

translate service but be careful as nothing is free on the internet so there maybe payload of adverts and junk mail. John via email asks: Hi Aunty. I need to translate a letter from English to German so I scanned the letter onto my computer and it is successfully saved as a PDF file. I have tried using Google Translate but although it tells me it is translating, nothing happens. I would appreciate your help.

Aunty Says: Hello John. You will need to scan the document using the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) function of your scanner which is normally an available option just before you start the scan. You should then get the option to save the document to Word etc. in a text format which you can then copy/paste into Google Translate. There are plenty of websites out there that offer a free PDF

Vikki from Murcia asks: Hi Aunty. I am having a problem trying to stop a website from appearing whenever I go on the Internet, it keeps popping up whatever I am doing and I have to close Chrome to get rid of it. I have also noticed my internet keeps slowing down and occasionally my computer will lock up and I will need to pop the battery out. Aunty Says: Hello Vikki From the link you sent me it looks like you may have a rootkit virus on your computer. Make sure you have an updated copy of MalwareBytes and do a full scan. Do the same with your antivirus program and let me know how you get on. Bob from Quesada asks: I have just recently bought a rather expensive Canon MG7750 printer but trying to get genuine cartridges locally seems to impossible. I don’t want to order them online as I’ve had a nightmare in the past with fake or faulty ink. I work with high quality photographs so I don’t mind buying genuine ones as they last longer, have better quality ink and are less likely to damage my printer.. Aunty Says: If you don’t want to shop online Bob then try giving Pauline or Mike a call at www.inks.es (just around the corner from you in Montesinos) as they have good prices for most of the major models plus they are always in stock. I used to stick with originals but I’ve been trying out “compatibles” and have found the print quality has greatly improved and they seem to have far more ink. Any questions, you can email me at: auntyvirus@costablancapeople.com and hopefully see you all next week.

Toyota launches adorable companion robot Japan’s first robot astronaut Kirobo flew for 18 months in space, and now its smaller cousin, Kirobo Mini, will be available soon. The Kirobo Mini is 10-centimetres tall and will bridge the gap between humans and their machines while it sits snugly inside your car’s cup holder. At release, the robot can carry out conversations exclusively in Japanese. Hand gestures, facial

expression, and even the tone of speaking changes according to the mood of the conversation. Aside from listening, a built-in camera also lets the Kirobo Mini look at who it is talking to and identify people’s facial expressions so it can respond accordingly. Because of the robot’s diminutive size, most of the processing happens elsewhere. The Kirobo requires pairing with a smartphone via Bluetooth to work. A dedicated cloud service

for the Kirobo by Toyota is also required, which costs an additional $3 a month. The robot itself costs $387. Initially, the Kirobo Mini will only be available in Japan, for sale at select car dealerships. Aside from just providing small talk, the Kirobo Mini wants to literally give a humanoid face to the future home. The robot can comment

they become relevant again. Aside from just being a chatterbox, Toyota has a bigger purpose for the robot. The official Kirobo Mini website reads: “Imagine how driving would change if Kirobo Mini’s technology was integrated into Toyota vehicles: we could assimilate hours of data to better the everyday lives of drivers all over the world, informing future innovations and developing transport that’s in tune with the driver’s mood, suggesting places to visit, routes to

about your driving and help you navigate. Just as you pull up the driveway, the robot can remind you that a hot bath is running for you and whatever smart home appliances are activated upon your arrival. Algorithms that run the robot are self-learning, making it respond better with further use.

By allowing drivers to just talk naturally, Toyota might be able to unlock what people demand from modern vehicles. While robotic driving is still finding its way to the mainstream, a different kind of robot might pave the way.

Gig Guide

S

itting here with a streaming cold made me think of the entertainment adage –“The show must go on”. Many people don’t realise that acts will try to fulfil their bookings no matter what personal or physical problems they may have. Behind the scenes all hell can be breaking lose in an entertainer’s personal life and they can be wracked with pain but such is their commitment to the job and the audience that all those problems must be forgotten - For that one performance at least. Having been a dancer and carried on to the end of the show with a broken foot I can attest to the power of adrenaline. We all have troubles in our lives and the last thing we want to do when we go out to forget them and have a good time is seeing someone on stage who reminds us of our own miseries. Nothing brightens up my day than seeing a smiley singer who enjoys what they do. Smile and the world smiles with you as they say. Making you smile this Tuesday are two completely different styles of tributes. Appearing for the first time at the ever popular La Bodegueta in Lo Crispin is fun Elvis tribute and all round showman Danny Fisher. Back by popular demand in Playa Flamenca you can find the Beatles Duo at Pablo’s International. If Sir Rod Stewart is your favourite then you can do no better than David John Williams who will be strutting his stuff at YOLO (You only live once) on the Cabo Roig Strip on Tuesday and at Pablo’s on Friday. On Saturday Phil Collins fans can catch the amazing Rob Lewis at The Club, Quesada. Rob has a unique style and an uncanny voice likeness to Phil Collins and has been at the top of his game since winning Stars in Their Eyes. Rob is usually to be found on the high seas entertaining cruise ship customers so this is a rare chance to enjoy what audiences have been raving about worldwide.

A BLEAK El Plantio 2 Stray Sod La Marina Golf Society DAY ON THE Golf Society Golf Society COSTA BLANCA We set off for Altorreal in pouring rain and with the weather forecast in mind, little expectation of an enjoyable round. The society booked for earlier tee-times abandoned their day, but we struck lucky. Just before our starting time the sky brightened and the rain stopped and we enjoyed a dry day. Although there was some lying water the course was in excellent condition and benefits from the money that has been invested recently. Silver winner with 31 pts was Gerry Mccabe, but this was eclipsed by gold winner Les Pirie with 34pts. Les also managed 2 NTP's and a share in the 2's pot with Alan Craig and Bill Stobbo. Alan Craig and Lindsay Merchant completed the NTP awards. It was also the final of the K.O. Cup and Mike Green scraped home on countback from Sarah Mccabe, both of them (before starting) citing injured shoulders as an excuse in the event of losing. Our next outing is Captain's Day on 27th October at el Plantio which is arranged as follows: 0930 9 - hole competition on par 3 course Breakfast to follow. 11.30 competition on 18 hole course Evening dinner at the La Marina Club. Please contact Elspeth on elspeth4mcd@yahoo.co.uk to give her your requirements and to let her know if you wish to bring a guest to the dinner (cost 10euros) many thanks to Helena and Paolo for providing the food on Thursday.

Unfortunately on Thursday 13th October Eurogolfs planned Greensomes had to be cancelled due to torrential rain. However on Tuesday 11th Toffs played in beautiful sunshine and enjoyed a lovely day of golf. The results were Cat 1. (0-15) 1st John Fairhurst 36 2nd Pete Cleaver c/b 36 3rd Dave Nichols Cat 2 (16-24) 1st Steve Sayers 37 2nd Ken Enever 35 3rd Bob Shorley 32 Cat 3 (25-31) 1st Ed Silvester 34 2nd Franco Gentili c/b 34 3rd John Hill 32 Overall Tiffs winner Steve Sayers Best front 9 Jan Shorley 19 Best back 9 Paul Manning 20 NTP´s 5th Jan Shorley 11th Sue Forbes 15th Dave Nichols 17th Mike Inns Football draw John Kirkwood Debbie Weedon Ian Turner and Fred Reeve.

Great turnout for The Stray Sod 32 of us travelled to La Torre today. The course was in great condition but the greens were a bit slow. We played singles stableford competition and 2 nearest the pins. Nearest the pin on the 9th was Andy Kane, nearest the pin on 17th was Margaret Wright. Best ladies score was Judy Shilver with 38 points, and todays winner with 41 points and cleaned up the pot of €85 was little Jimmy Sullivan (hope Sheila doesn't see this Jim) Jimmy wasn't bothered about the €85 euro and the box of balls! He took more pleasure in taking €3 from Andy Kane.

A DELUGE OF Your Week in Sport GOALS AS TOP TEAMS RAMPAGE ■ CHRIS DARWEN

chris@costablancapeople.com

After what seemed an interminable ‘international break’ the league weekend started in unpromising fashion, with a sterile 0-0 draw between Las Palmas and Español, but that must have spurred the strikers into action. Sevilla visited newcomers Leganés, and the game looked to be headed for a two-all scoreline until Sarabia’s 85th minute goal kept the Andalucian side in third place. Barcelona had little problem in putting four past Deportivo, two of them scored by Rafinha, and Suarez notching the one he needed to keep up with Griezmann in the ‘pichichi’ table. It was the turn of Atletico to entertain Granada, who had just sacked manager Paco Jemez. Said Sr. Jemez must have taken time off from counting his compensation to spare a wry grin as Belgian Carrasco slotted in the first three of seven goals as the ‘Colchoneros’ added to Granada’s misery. Real Madrid, not to be outdone, and smarting after a row of draws, paid a visit to Betis in the Andalucian capital, and put their ghosts firmly to bed after four minutes when Varane headed home the first of six. They coasted home 1-6 winners, Ronaldo having to wait until late in the second half for his own personal contribution. When Athletic Bilbao played host to Real Sociedad, more goals transpired, Athletic running out 3-2 victors. Valencia, having freshly appointed Prandelli in charge, had a good away win against Sporting, then, in Sunday’s last match, Villareal, not wishing to be left out of the goalfest, ran in five against Celta, to stay fifth in the table. In the second division, Levante scraped home 21 against Mallorca to stay six points clear at the head of the table. Locals Elche had a good 1-3 win at

Zaragoza to stay in touch with the play-off places. In division 2B, group 4 leaders Marbella are still unbeaten, despite having been held to a draw the previous week, and this weekend’s 1-0 win over Melilla means they have an enviable record of 8 wins and a draw from their nine matches, keeping them well clear of the field. Spare a thought for oncemighty Real Murcia, languishing in their 32,000 seat modern stadium, struggling near the bottom of group 4 – they lost at home to San Fernando 0-1. Group 1 sees a change of leader, with Cultural Leonesa, drawn against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey, winning 0-3 at Guijuelo to lead on goal difference from Racing de Santander, who could only draw at home with Tudelano. Group 2 is currently something of a bunfight, three points covering the first nine teams, whilst Ebro are clear leaders of group 3, closely followed by locals Alcoyano and Hercules, who will meet Barcelona in the Cup. In England Manchester City, due to face Barcelona in midweek, somehow contrived to fluff two penalties, and drew 1-1 with Everton, allowing Arsenal, who beat Swansea, to catch up. Chelsea handed out a thrashing to champions Leicester – not the force they were last term. Away from football, Roberto Bautista knocked Djokovic out of the semi-final in the Shanghai open tennis tournament, only to fall foul of the in-form Andy Murray, who looks set to take over world number one spot soon. In cycling, Peter Sagan won the World Road Race Championship, whilst motorcycling’s top title goes to Spain’s Marc Marquez. Malcolm Palmer

Cycling and alleged drug taking/missing a drug test/having the kind of illness that others feel may qualify you for the Paralympics. Delete where appropriate, but they all seem to go hand in hand don’t they? It has now been alleged that Sir Bradley Wiggins missed a routine drugs test three months before the Rio Olympics which would be his third missed test in his career. Yes, that is more than the tally of gold medals some cyclists won at Rio. Now, this could well be very innocent and not problematic whatsoever, but Sir Bradley did condemn a fellow cyclist a little while back saying something like “there are no excuses for missing a drugs test.” Well, no excuses other than the ones Sir Bradley allegedly dishes out from time to time. Speaking of drugs in sport, or outside of sport in this case, no sooner had Tyson Fury given up his titles and belts following his admission of failing a drugs test for cocaine in the build up to the Klitschko rematch the people who run boxing suspended him indefinitely. Well, that has probably added several million pounds to the purse for the comeback fight then. Finally a sports person whose reputation will remain intact. London 2012 gold medallist Jessica Ennis Hill has announced she is retiring from athletics. She will be remembered for being the one who wasn’t Mo Farah or the ginger long jumper on Super Saturday in West Ham’s new home. Andy Murray, yes really, has the world number one ranking in his sights. Murray won the Shanghai Masters, which sounds more like a poker tournament than a game of tennis to close the gap between himself and Djovokic. Considering that we’ve historically had little to shout about until Murray

T.M.G.S. @ La Finca La Siesta On a perfect day for golf almost 40 members and a couple of guests made their way to La Finca for the 1st round of our Captain’s Stableford competition. Although we run 3 categories on the day the Captain’s Stableford competition is based on all overall scores and the best 3 of 4 rounds to count over the course of this season. The course was in good condition but many players were asking what had been done to the greens, they were too fast!! This was reflected in the Bronze category results. It seems that the lower handicappers handled the speed better with both winners returning scores better than par. However a visitor did have the best score of the day with his 42 points and before handing in his card asked if he

could join? The Secretary replied, yes of course, all you need to do is hand over your membership fee of €20. Which he did and was then told that his membership would begin NEXT week! (You always need to be aware of the Vikings) Results: N.T.P.’s Hole 3 I. Brown, Hole 6 NADA, Hole 13 B. Striver, Hole 16 J. Hettrick. Best Visitor K. Skipperud 42 pts. Bronze category, 3rd M.

Bowls Club By Rod Edgerton

The Winter League season commenced with a home match against San Miguel and this match seesawed with both sides having the advantage at different times. However, it was the home team that kept their nerve and came out winners by 99 shots to 79. Winning rinks were Sheila Chorley,Rod Edgerton, Sue Jordan and Brian Fraser 279. Val Dalton, Alex Morrrice, Pat Harman and Jean Cooper 23-14, and Harold Charleton, Pat Moore, Bill Jordan and Brian Gardiner 20-18. Overall points score La Siesta 8 San Miguel 4. The Blues first league match was away at Emerald Isle Claymores but despite winning the shots by 109-103 it was the Claymores that won the points 86. Two big wins for Joy Gardiner, John Taylor and Jean Cooper 31-15 and Beryl Styring, Ramsey Sinclair and Alex Morrice 30-4 helped but La Siesta just came up short. The Golds started their home campaign in the Southern League with a 10-4 defeat at home to Greeenlands Cedars with a points score of 95-109.The winning rinks for La Siesta were Wendy Ralph,Tony Campbell and Johnnie Ryder winning 23-16 and Penny Porter Rab Logan and John Lincoln winning 2115.With lots of new players La Siesta will look to improve as those players get more experience as we go on but well done to everyone for their efforts. Two more Touring Teams are yet to visit with Fleet on Sunday and Burgess Hill on Tuesday.

rocked up, I would imagine there will be a national holiday if he does get to the very top of the tree. Forget the fact that Djokovic has been there for ages and won several more Grand Slam titles than Andy, just one day at the top of the ATP rankings will be enough to allow Sue Barker to finally retire happy. England beat Bangladesh 2-1 in the One Day Series, and the security measures taken did not extend to protecting both teams from the argy bargy that ensued Joss Buttler’s dismissal in the final match. England’s stand-in captain felt, rightly, that the Bangladesh boys may have celebrated his wicket a little too energetically, and certainly pointed it out to them in his very best Somerset twang.

LAS RAMBLAS GOLF SOCIETY Our first game of the week was a 6x6x6 where one score counts on the first 6 holes, two scores on the second 6 and three on the final 6 holes. The weather conditions were perfect for golf and the team taking full advantage with an excellent 14 under score of 86 pts were Terry Field, Ulrike Barth, Pete Dunn and Mike Chapman. The highlights of the round were an eagle by Terry on the Par 5 fourth hole and a birdie by Ulrike for 5 pts on the tenth. In second place were Tom Hardie, Doug Wright, Marleen Billen and Hendrick Oldenziel with 81 pts. On Wednesday we played our normal weekly stableford competition after an excellent Club lunch at El Prado San Miguel the day before. There was a very good turn out and the scoring was particularly good especially in Cat 2 where level par didn't even make the frame. The top score of 39 pts came from Joyce McClusky to win Category 2 whilst Ron Phipps beat Terry Field to win Category 1 on a count back with both players scoring 38 pts and two 2's to claim the majority of the 2's Club money. The top three in each category were as follows:

and Lindsay Forbes

Cat 2. 1st Joyce McClusky 39 pts 2nd Ulrike Barth 38 pts 3rd Doug Wright 37 pts

On Friday eight pairs took part in the Pairs Match Play Knockout competition with an eye to gaining a place in the semi finals. Those winning their match were Doug Wright and Brian Dent (2&1), Nick Campbell and Pete Dunn (1 up), Ron Phipps and Hendrick Oldenziel (2&1) but the stand out performance of the day came from Bryan Neal and Mike Chapman who dove tailed brilliantly to beat red hot favourites Terry Field and Marleen Billen by 6&5. Bryan's 2 birdies on the Par 3 sixth and tenth holes were the highlight of the round. The remaining members played a 2 ball better ball which was won by Olga Douglas and guest Brian Stratton with a score of 40 pts.

2's Club: Ron Phipps (x2), Terry Field (x2)

He was also Captain and President of the San Miguel Golf Society, a much loved man by everyone that knew him. The course was in excellent condition with lovely greens, wall to wall sunshine, a good remedy for good scoring, and we were not disappointed, with Shamus Martin in the Gold Category coming in with a nett 71, to win the Trophy, Some other good scores were also recorded.

BUSTERS OCTOBER 2016 GOLF REPORT Lee Barber memorial Shield On Friday the 7th October we played for the Lee Barber Memorial shield , unfortunately Lee one of our founder members passed away in August 2015 , so as a society we thought that it was apt to have something to remember him by , the shield along with smaller copies for the winner to keep as a memento were kindly donated by Brian Jones , Nikki and Brian Ead , the competition was played at Bonalba . As seems the norm by most Spanish golf courses the course was playing very long , the four par three’s in up keeping with this Spanish tradition were all over one hundred and fifty metres and as most of the members of our golf societies are past retirement it would help if they could shorten the course where and when necessary especially the par three’s but we can only live in hope , some of Bonalba’s fairways had suffered due to Bonalba recently holding the Under 18 Spain v Italy tournament followed by the Spanish Amateur Championship , when they were advised to reduce irrigation and cut the level of the grass on the fairways for these matches , this caused Bonalba problems which they are slowly sorting out ( reseeding etc. ) however it also caused us amateurs problems but with good weather and good company the day turned out to be very enjoyable

for the twenty four players who turned out to play in this competition . Now onto our results , although the four par threes were playing long they were all hit in one by some of our player’s , the fourth hole was hit in one by Jo Doyle who managed to hole the put and

win our two’s pot outright , well done Jo , eighth hole was won by Derek Ailes , the eleventh was taken by John Chatham with Dave Ryan winning the fourteenth all received a sleeve of golf balls , our best front nine with fifteen points being won by John Chatham and the best back nine with fourteen points won by guest Frank Burton both received Grants scotch , tying in third place with Dave Ryan was Bill Peters with Dave taking second place by count back but our winner on the day was Kay Ryan , our first three all received either

Vodka , Bacardi or Whisky depending on their choice , the prizes were all donated by John West , Brian Jones and myself , the NTP prizes had been donated by Brian Jones , our November games takes us to Roda which is a course we all enjoy and are looking forward to playing . Can I once again take this opportunity to thank Rik , Lisa and the Staff at Quesadas Mini Bar which is located close to the arches in Quesada , for looking after us on our return to the bar for our presentation and providing us with an assortment of sandwiches and snacks that were followed with a couple of the bars sensibly priced beers . Busters Golf Society is a small friendly group of like minded people who play on the first Friday of the month , depending on the time of the year we generally have between sixteen and twenty four players , over the four years since we first formed the society some of our original members have moved on , either returned to their country of origin or have ventured to pastures new , so we are looking for a few more members to swell our ranks , if you are interested in joining our society ( its free) then please email me Barry Grinsell at bustersgolfsociety@hotmail.com quoting your phone number and current handicap and I will get back to you within a couple of days .

Paddy’s Point GS The Lime Bar Golf ABBEY ANGLING After our week away on the annual Extremadura Fishing Festival, we began with the 5th round of the Winter Series on the 11th October on the River Segura at Murcia.

The Plaza Golf Society at The Alehouse Vistabella Well I think most players were glad the storm came early as they still got to play. We had a full house yet again with new faces too.

Nearest the pins were sponsored by Christian Attwood, with The famous Irish Declan O’Dea taking hole 4, Scotland's Richard McAllen hole 8 and for the English Mr John 1 Eyre taking hole 15.

Our guests were Colin Bell coming in second with 32 points with his handicap of 15, Declan with 39 points with his single figure handicap of 6. Our members saw Phil De Lacy taking 3rd spot on count-back to Mr Tony Smale both scoring an impressive 35 points and Mick Lanchester scored an amazing 37 points with his handicap of 20. Great golf had by all but the afternoon with DJ snoopy was fantastic with the golfers and partners dancing the afternoon away. Our next event is Friday 28th which is a sell out and already have a huge reserve list in place. Please get your name down for Alicante Friday 11thNovember and our other events so to avoid disappointment.

until just before 8am, at least there was no rain during the match although it had been forecast.

A record number of golfers, which included over 30 who came across from Ireland for the event, competed in the UNA DUFFY MEMORIAL DAY at El VALLE. For the most part the weather was good although the last few groups did get a bit wet. The course proved tricky as usual with the bunkers taking their toll however scoring in general was very good. Congratulations to Shaun Murphy for his hole in one at the 12th. The breakfast baps and goodie bags were much appreciated as was the fantastic buffet in the evening. Thank you Hazel and Rory and all Paddy's staff for looking after us, you did a great job. Chloe, thank you for the biscuits they were delicious.

THE CELTS CLUB DE GOLF Our Presidents' prize was celebrated last Wednesday at our home course, La Serena. It was our fifth annual event and how rapidly the years have gone. With a field of almost seventy players the scene was set for the challenge. Scoring was particularly high on the day as the tees were placed in a location that was rather forward due to un-expected maintenance. I would like to thank the staff in the proshop for their usual courtesy, Karolina, Jose, Leticia and Paul. An event such as this takes many months of planning and it is very important to acknowledge the role played by the members of the junta directiva. To Camillus Fitzpatrick ably assisted on the day by Alisdair McLean and Philip Mountford many thanks for all the hard work. To our treasurer Denis McCormack who does a sterling job managing the accounts and making it possible to purchase such an array of prizes. Through prudent management the competition is subsidised by The Celts club and the entry fee for the day was only 10 euro. This covered golf, prizes and dinner in El Prado restaurant in San Miguel. I would like to thank the many visitors who competed on the day and this year we also had two representatives attend from the federation FGCV. Alfredo Martinez Ruiz

the head rules referee and Miguel Ballester. We would like to thank them for their attendance and support. We celebrated our prize giving ceremony on the night with a splendid dinner and I would like to thank Juan and his staff for the very tasty fayre. Entertainment on the night was

those who helped make the evening special. We were asked if we could help a nephew of one of our members’ who had just been diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia. And a huge thank you to all those on the night for their generosity as we raised the

provided by our very own Jackie Whyte. From start to finish she had us all enjoying her talent and she assisted Alfredo with his rendition of “It's now or never” which had the ladies weak at the knees. Thank you Jackie and all

magnificent sum of 1,000 euros. This collection is much appreciated by the family and will reduce some of the financial worries. We wish Oran well and a speedy recovery. Down to the presentation of prizes,

our Captain Bev Ellender was at hand as she has throughout the year to assist with the prize giving. I would like to thank Beverley for contribution to our club, she has been a model as captain lending her support to all our events. We had five sections, one for the visitors and four members’ categories. In the visitors’ section we had, Enda Curtayne with 37 and 2nd Tommy Finegan 33. The NTP’s were won by sharp shooter Kathleen Maher two, Denis McCormack, John O’Brien, Colin Soones and Anslem Molloy. Category 4. 1st. Kevin McBride 41, 2nd. Giovanni Butto 39, 3rd. Jane Knight 39.
