Reassurance on expat healthcare T

he third Health Tourism Forum meeting took place in the private Hospital Quirón on the afternoon of Wednesday, 23rd November. A number of experts were there including Francisco Fiestras, the managing director of the Hospital Quirón, Pedro Heredia, lawyer from Pellicer & Heredia, Victoria Abad, the international director, Antonio González, general director of the newspaper La Verdad, Eduardo Dolón the deputy of Tourism of the Diputación de Alicante and HELP Vega Baja president, Michele Masson. The general message was that people should stay calm and not panic. It was

pointed out that Spain is the second health provider of the UK and altogether collects almost 280 million euros for the healthcare it provides to British people. Spain, however, pays around four million euros for the health care of the Spanish who live in the UK. The Forum was of the view that Brexit will not affect the right to health treatment for British residents and that an agreement will also be reached for tourists. Whatever happens there will still be care for emergencies, minors and pregnant women. Pedro Heredia offered assurances to British people resident in Spain. He believes that European legislation will ensure that expats’ rights will not be restricted or removed. Michele Masson is a well-known figure within the British community in Spain and is constantly in contact with those who might be most affected. ‘It was a privilege to be asked to attend the debate with such a distinguished group of people,’ says

Michele. ‘It was good to hear their views on the impact that Brexit may have on expats and tourists in the area.’ ‘Prior to attending the meeting we asked people on the HELP Vega Baja Facebook page to send through any questions that they would like raised and the overwhelming response concerned healthcare. Generally, people are very worried that when the UK leaves the EU they will no longer be able to have access to healthcare here in Spain in the same way as they do now.’ Michele is aware that some people are returning to the UK and are in the process of putting their property on the market. The Forum discussed how lack of information has been a prime cause of the concern amongst British people and Francisco Fiestras advised that it was important to avoid making hasty decisions and preferred that there should be a campaign of information to ease the worries of the British tourists

and residents. Everyone agreed during the meeting that information was just as important here in Spain as in the UK and that it was important that everyone worked together to ‘dispel doubts’. ‘We will now go forward to discuss the day with other charities in the area,’ says Michele. ‘By working together, we will try to give assurance to those people who are anxious about the situation.’ ‘Charities in the area work closely with the British Consulate and when required we will pass on concerns relating to Brexit and the impact it is having on the lives of our members and visitors, directly to the Consulate. This is the best way for the government to become aware of problems that occur and we have the assurance from the Consulate that whatever we pass on is taken to the next level.’ Michele is critical of the impact that the British press in the UK have in contributing to concerns with sensa-

tionalised stories and reminds people that they can telephone or visit charities such as HELP Vega Baja for more reliable sources of information than ‘Bob in the bar’. ‘ ‘We only publish information that we know has come from a reliable source and is updated regularly. Please do not sit at home and worry – talk to us and we will do what we can to help,’ says Michele. If you would like more information about the debate and how you can make sure your voice is heard, contact their San Miguel Centre on 966 723 733 or email office@helpvegabaja.com Suzanne O’Connell

It can be difficult enough to negotiate pavements and roadworks in Torrevieja without a disability. The difficulties which people who use a wheelchair and lack mobility experience on a daily basis was the subject of a protest march on Saturday 26th November. Blocked access to ramps and zebra crossings, poorly parked cars and people taking up disabled parking spaces are just some of the complaints brought to the attention of the town hall by town’s people.

During the march, the police accompanying the protesters issued a number of fines to people parking inappropriately. This included those parked in places reserved for those with a disabled badge. Other fines were issued to people parked on zebra crossing and, preventing access to ramps. Another frequently encountered problem is from vehicles which are parked on corners and make it difficult to cross to the other side. The protesters claim that the major problem isn’t urban planning or the infrastructure so much as the behaviour of people who ignore the parking laws and do not respect the spaces designated for people with special needs.

The complaints have been raised by la Asociación de Padres de Alumnos con Necesidades Educativas Especiales (APENEE). This is the association of parents whose children need special education. ‘It’s like making your way through a jungle’, explained representatives of the group. The protesters are asking for rights of way to be cleared through the town centre to enable them to use the facilities with their children without having to circumnavigate the cars which block their access. The problem of poor and illegal parking is one that the Local Police are aware of.

The fines implemented yesterday are indicative of the fact that we are not just talking about one isolated incident but problems that occur regularly and frequently. Those committing these offences do not think of the difficulties they cause for those with mobility problems. It’s not just disabled people who are affected by this inconsiderate behaviour. Those with pushchairs and older people with shopping bags on wheels are also inconvenienced daily. This is an annual protest and it will continue until the problem has disappeared.

Graham Knight invites people to join him in the presentation of his grandfather’s book ‘From the Prairie to Passchendaele’. Fred Knight, at the age of 83, had decided to write his own story in spite of having only one arm and the hand that he had, shaking from Parkinson’s. With the use of an early electric typewriter and special apparatus attached to his head, Fred Knight managed to write down his memoires. Now, his grandson Graham Knight, is proud to present the recently published book based upon his grandfather’s story. The well-known author, Joy Lennick, has adapted Fred’s autobiography and it is particularly fitting that the final book should have been published on 11th November, Remembrance Day. The book presentation and signing will take place on Wednesday 14th December 2016 at 11am at the Real Club Nautico, Paseo Vista Alegre in Torrevieja. Graham would love to see as many people there as possible.

PROTESTS AGAINST MORE VALENCIANO IN SCHOOLS The Valencian Government is proposing to increase the amount of teaching carried out in valenciano in local schools. The proposals will mean that more subjects will be taught using the Valencian language or valenciano at the expense of teaching in Castellano – the traditional language spoken across Spain. The new approach has particular significance in Torrevieja because of the number of different first languages here. For children who already have a different first language to that of their peers it represents a further hurdle. It’s also argued that when a subject is taught through the medium of a foreign or second language it is likely that it will be less well understood by at least some of those being taught. Those children who are not strong in valenciano, although very similar to Castellano, can find it more difficult to learn and enjoy other subjects such as Art and Music. There are also concerns that schools are not equipped with sufficient resources to teach in this way. Many people would prefer to see the amount of time dedicated to English increased rather than Valenciano. Although it is needed to take up civil service jobs in the Valencian region, it has limited value in the rest of Spain or in other countries. The majority of children who live here will want to travel and possibly live and work abroad. Greater

competence in Valenciano over Castellano will not help them. However, the battle over languages goes much deeper than what proportion of the timetable they occupy. As the Spanish dictator, Francisco Franco, banned the speaking and teaching of local languages, including valenciano, during his dictatorship, so it has become synonymous for some with regional freedom from oppression. Increasing the importance of valenciano is seen as a triumph against the dictatorship and his view of a united Spain without community identity. Even now, 41 years on from his death, feelings run high about the preservation of thelocal traditions, beliefs and languages that were supressed during his dictatorship. Many feel that it is now time to look more globally at what’s needed than regionally. AMPA, the parent teacher association in Spain, is calling on people to make their views known by completing a form and registering it with the PROP office in Torrevieja before Thursday 1st December. They are protesting at the proposed changes to the curriculum in Torrevieja claiming that the Valencian Government are not in a position to make such a radical change without a national mandate.

Continued issues with the indoor market Problems of how to regularise the indoor market in Torrevieja continue. It was discovered recently that the market had been built without plans for there to be a top floor. The conundrum was how to regularise this without requiring the demolition of the whole building. In addition there are also problems with the ground floor. However, Councillor Fanny Serrano has clarified that the market can continue to be used whilst the regularisation process takes place. The issue of illegal builds continues in the town with the Municipal Theatre now having been closed for 15 months. There is some relief that the market can continue trading whilst legal issues are addressed. However, the long-term fate of the market, built in 1995, is still in the balance and only the ground floor can currently be used.

Experts analyse the past and the future of the natural park A conference was held as part of the natural park’s 20th anniversary to discuss its past and its future. The conference took place on Friday 25th November in the Casino in Torrevieja and was attended by Councillor Fanny Serrano, Francisco Javier Durá who is president of the governing body; biology expert, Juan Antonio Pujol and Fancisco Martínez who is the new Director of the park. Durá presented the rules that govern the park and discussed the origin of its conservation policy. Those attending reflected on the state of the area before it was declared to be a park and the threats to it that still exist.

Friday, 25th November was the International Day Against Gender Violence. The day was specifically focused on violence against women although there are occasions when men can be the victim of domestic violence too. The day was commemorated in the town with the release of purple and white balloons in la plaza de la Constitución. The town councillors África Celdrán, Carmen Morate and Victor Ferrández joined

A manifesto against gender violence was read out; ‘Men and women are equally important. Love unites people and never ties them together. It is won with effort and not imposed by force. Words of love are beautiful not insulting. Gestures caress, they don’t strike. If anyone holds you back from the road to happiness or insults you or hits you, don’t confuse this with love. Reclaim your dignity and give it to someone who deserves it. True love drives the world.’ In order to raise awareness to the day

The day was acknowledged throughout Spain with various displays of solidarity. This year so far, there have been 33 deaths of women in Spain at the hands of their partners or expartners. It’s estimated that around one out of every three women in the world has suffered physical or sexual violence. There are two ways of accessing help if you are currently experiencing domestic violence in Spain. You can call 116 and will be put through to a domestic violence hotline. The second is by making a denuncia. These actions will trigger a sequence of events that should enable you to access the support you need. Suzanne O’Connell

This will be a consultative and participation body created by the City of Orihuela, through which its aims to ‘reflect the interests of all those people related to professional training in our city,’ said the councillor.

Orihuela tobacconist robbed at gunpoint A tobacconist in the Orihuela village of La Campaneta, which is located on the road towards Almoradí, has been subjected to a ‘film-style’ robbery when he was held up at gunpoint last Monday evening. The police have confirmed that the attack was committed by two men who entered the shop brandishing a handgun and demanded that the shopkeeper hand over the day’s takings. The same police sources said that the robbery

took place at about 8:30pm and that the two robbers had a third accomplice waiting outside in a car and after they took the loot the three of them made a speed get away in the vehicle. The Local and National Police have been processing the crime scene and are now working to catch those responsible or the robbery. This is the first reported crime of its type in the area and police are keen to stop the gang before they try the same type of hold-up again.

They also wanted to find out more about some pending road network developments such as alterations to the CV-95 by Torrevieja Hospital and the widening of the N332. There were particular concerns raised about sea-front, high-rise construction.The mayor showed them a plan on which were outlined the current urbanisations and future areas for

development. Much of the building that is taking place now was agreed during previous administrations. The meeting took place in the town hall and was attended by many people from different countries. Some residents use bicycles as transport in Torrevieja and are keen to see an increase in the number of bike lanes in the town. Questions were also asked about public transport and what the Government’s plans are to improve it. Suzanne O’Connell

Plans for dog beach to be taken forward The councillors representing seven different political parties all agreed to amend local by-laws so that dogs can be taken to a named beach by their owners. It is expected that this will come into effect before Easter. Which beach the new legislation will refer to, has yet to be determined. There are believed to be six options that are currently being considered. There are already 58 beaches in the country where dogs can be taken and if Torrevieja adds another to this list it is believed that it will be an asset to the town. There may have been agreement about the principal but we could still see disagreement on the actual beach to be chosen. For example, councillor Pablo Samper is not in favour of Playa Ferrís being the chosen venue. This beach has been one of the more popular options put forward so far. Suzanne O’Connell

Collapsing shelves injure court worker ■ SUZANNE O’CONNELL suzanne@costablancapeople.com

An employ at the courts in Torrevieja was injured when a shelf collapsed in her offices. Workers at the courts have complained before about the state of the offices and it’s claimed that this is the third time that something like this has happened. The functionary of the courts was injured on Friday 25th November and suffered a number of cuts and bruises and a wrist injury after a shelf fell on her. The shelf was overloaded with files, folders and other documentation linked to court number 3 in Torrevieja. Witnesses at the time say the injuries could have been much worse and she was lucky to come off so lightly. There

was recently a similar incident in the criminal court and in another office. The safety of shelves has been reported on a number of occasions and this was an accident waiting to happen. They are not designed to handle the weight of documentation that they are holding and are not properly secured. In October Costa Blanca People reported that the judiciary system in Alicante is at breaking point with lack of investment over years meaning that court houses and administrative offices are in a poor state of upkeep. Basic building problems such as poor plumbing, falling masonry and faulty IT are making it difficult to cope with the mounting number of cases that come to the courts. It has been reported that space is so limited in the court of Torrevieja that presentations are made through a window of the courthouse. The risk isn’t only to the people who work there. The shelf was located in a place where ordinary citizens are constantly walking and could just as easily have caused an injury to one of them. The court was in process on Friday and many people passed through the site of the damage during the day. The state of the building is a risk to everyone who uses it. The problem isn’t only with the shelving. The roof also needs repairing as there are problems with leaks into the offices. This also, recently, led to someone falling over and being injured due to a wet floor.

Consulate encourages people to volunteer Red Cross and English speaking charities encourage English speakers to volunteer One year after signing an agreement with the British Embassy, the Red Cross has taken fresh steps to get English speaking charities to work more closely with their local groups and to encourage more English speakers to volunteer. The British Consulate, along with Pedro Dominguez, newly hired by the Red

Cross as European residents’ coordinator, held meetings in Calpe and Torrevieja to allow the Red Cross local groups to get to know their English speaking counterparts. They were keen to collaborate and were unanimous in what their main need was – more volunteers. The different groups also discussed how to get more vulnerable British nationals to use teleasistencia, the Red Cross “panic alarm” service which allows at risk people to continue living

independently as they can call for help whenever needed. Many British nationals don’t realise that the Red Cross offers this service in English and that it isn’t just a case of pressing the emergency button – volunteers will also carry out regular welfare checks so the user doesn’t become isolated. Following the meeting, British Vice Consul in Alicante, Sara Munsterhjelm (right) said: “A year from signing the agreement to work more closely with the Red Cross, it is fantastic that they have now employed a full time English speaking member of staff to work with European residents. The benefits to the Red Cross and the English speaking charities from working together are clear – the charities can benefit from the Red Cross’ knowledge and infrastructure, and the English speaking charities can help the Red Cross reach vulnerable British nationals and give support with fundraising.” Pedro took note of all the ideas that came up in the meeting, especially the cry for more volunteers. He said “I’m excited about this new role and can’t wait to get on the road to work with all the different associations. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about volunteering to get in touch with the Red Cross or any one of the English speaking charities. It’s a great way to get involved and to integrate into the local community”.

Patron saint of Torrevieja festivities It’s the time of year when Torrevieja pays homage to its patron saint of La Inmaculada with a range of celebrations that spread over the course of two weeks from the 27th November until the 10th December. The celebrations begin with the children’s parade on the 27th November from the Virgen del Carmen centre at 4.30pm. There will be a theme of ‘superheroes’ and this will also be followed up in the town’s dance schools. The Giants and Bigheads processions begin on Thursday 2nd December at 5.45 pm leaving from the Plaza de la Constitución to Paseo Vista Alegre and back again. The characters who take part in this rather strange ritual include Lily, Ogre and the wolf who are the ‘Giants’. Under the huge papier-mâché heads people stagger along on stilts surrounded by the ‘Bigheads’ who, as the name suggest, are not so high in stature but have big heads too. This highly unusual parade can be seen around town on a number of occasions and the characters are usually pursued by children and young adults who take the opportunity to indulge in their own mini riot with fire crackers and drums. On Saturday 3rd December it will be a busy day with a ‘San Fermín’ event with a simulated bull run for children beginning at 11.30am. The giants and big heads will be out again parading around the streets and in the afternoon there will be music with

different bands performing. On this day, the statue of the Immaculate Conception will leave the Church of the Sacred Heart to be taken along the streets. Later on that evening the giants and big heads will be out again accompanied by the Musical Society of Torrevieja. On Sunday 4th there is something new for Torrevieja. Previously the Crazy Car race was held in La Mata. This year it will take place in Torrevieja between the avenida Diego Ramírez Pastor and the Plaza de la Constitución. On Monday 5th there will be two outings for the giants and bigheads one at 12.30pm and the other at 17.45pm. Tuesday 6th is a special day across Spain as it is the Day of the Constitution and there will be special events planned to celebrate. The paella competition will be held this year in the Recinto de Mercados on the Avenida Delfina Viudes. The event will begin at 1pm and at 3pm there will be a music concert with music from the era of the eighties. There will be around 80 participants in the competition and around 2,500 people are expected to taste the paella. There will be entertainment for children including inflatables and a mechanical bull. Torrevieja may celebrate its patron saint at a rather chilly time of the year, but hopefully it will continue to be as popular as ever as light relief before Christmas. Suzanne O’Connell

Festive fun as Santa Walk puts best foot forward

Join the festive fun

Christmas must be coming, because this Sunday, 4th December, see’s one of Coast’s most popular charity events, the Santa Walk, take place at Zenia Boulevard. Organised by Maria and the Pink Ladies, the event raises money exclusively for the AECC anti cancer charity. This is the seventh annual Santa Walk and the third to be held at the shopping centre. It is always a popular event with everyone dressing in Christmas fancy dress: Father Christmas, Mrs Christmas, snowmen, elves and even ‘reindogs’ can been spotted joining in the festive fun. The walk is a 5k circuitous route from Zenia Boulevard and although it is a walk people are able to run, jog, cycle, skate or be pushed round. Registration is just 5 euros, all of which is donated to the AECC… and the ‘sea of Santa’s’ really is a sight to behold as the procession weaves its way round the Orihuela Costa. So please bring your friends, family, the kids and even the family dog for a fun walk in the sun. Members of the public are also being asked to kindly bring along a toiletry item for the teenage children at Elche Children’s Home – such as deodorant, shower gel, perfume, aftershave, body lotion, moisturiser - and an item of dried or tinned food stuff for Reach Out to help feed those in need this Christmas. This year, the walk will start later than in previous years at 12.00noon. However, those wishing to take part should arrive earlier, from 11am to register. The walkers will follow Santa who, due to his busy schedule has swapped his sleigh for a truck, and on their return there will be live entertainment and Sunshine FM will be there supporting the event and playing some festive tunes. Maria Wilson said: “We hope that this year’s event will be as successful as previous years. The Santa Walk is all about having a bit of early Christmas fun to get in to the festive spirit….and raising money to fight cancer, a cause that is close to all our hearts.”

All the money raised will be used by the AECC to subsidise its Early Detection Programme which offers cancer screening tests for men and women against several types of cancer. Appointments for screenings can be made at Zenia Boulevard on the day of the walk. The AECC is a national Spanish charity, with branches across the country. The charity has a local office located on the ground floor, Playa Flamenca Commercial Centre, offering support to cancer sufferers and their families. Since forming in June 2010, Maria and the Pink Ladies and Panthers have raised more than €302,681 on behalf of the AECC.

CRUZ AZUL - HELPING TO KEEP CAT COLONIES UNDER CONTROL Animal welfare charity, Cruz Azul,is continuing its work to maintain control over cat colonies in the Murcia region. Following successful campaigns in Sucina village and El Valle Golf, they are working with animal lover, Lorraine Oram, in the San Pedro campo. Lorraine first came to Cruz Azul for help when she found a little dog who had been stabbed and left to die. The charity paid for his sterilisation, microchip and vaccinations and he was adopted by the lady who cared for him following his lifesaving surgery. Recently, Lorraine discovered a large cat colony near her home and paid to have three of them neutered. She did not have funds to sterilise all thirteen cats but knew Cruz Azul supports Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) campaigns and asked for their help. Cruz Azul has initially pledged 300€ to sterilise as many as can be caught andwill continue to support Lorraine until the whole colony has been neutered. “TNR is the most humane way of dealing with cat colonies” saidcharity VP, Sue. Cruz Azul are committed to helping people who want to do this rather than cats suffering horrible deaths from being poisoned. That is just barbaric and as TNR is proven the world over, we are happy to promote and support it.” Trap-Neuter-Return means the cats are humanely trapped in their colony, taken to a local vet to be sterilised, ear-clipped and vaccinated under anaesthetic, then returned to their colony site. Ear-clipping is to indicate the cat has been sterilised. Cats are normally returned to their colony on the same day with good antibiotic

protection. When it comes to reproduction, cats are prolific breeders. One female kitty can produce an average of 12 kittens each year if not spayed. Once a kitten reaches puberty, typically between 5 and 9 months of age, she will be able to reproduce. Some kitties mature as young as 3½ months old, usually after they reach around 2 kilos in weight. In warm climates such as ours, the

Murcia provides. Cruz Azul is supported by the World Veterinary Service, who have provided traps for this purpose. These are available on loan from the Cruz Azul Centre in San Javier and volunteers are happy to take everyone through the correct procedure. If you would like to know more, please give Sue Thomason a call on 693 017 616. Cruz Azul Murcia is a registered charity

females can remain in heat all year-round. Cruz Azul Murcia is happy to help local communities control their cat colonies. Co-operation between neighbours is the key to a successful campaign: raising funds for the operations and co-ordinating the Trap-Neuter-Return campaign, following the guidelines that Cruz Azul

(No. 11.720/1a) and exists to provide veterinary care for the sick and injured pets of people in need and to promote responsible pet ownership. If you or someone you know needs help, or you would like to volunteer or donate, please call 693 017 616 or visit their website: www.cruzazulmurcia.es

Christmas craft markets in Altea and Calpe This year Amata, the regional craft association, is hosting two Christmas Craft Markets, one in Altea thirty craft stalls next to the Town Hall, between Thursday 8th and Sunday 11th December – and the other in Calpe old town on the same dates. Both will feature stalls selling arts and crafts, live music, workshops for children, craft demonstrations and all sorts of what the Spanish call ‘espectácul’o processions, dancing, music and performances. Amata is a professional craft association and one that insists that each and every stall at one of its markets sells only goods made by the person behind the stall. There are no imported bits and pieces, and nothing is made in a factory; it is all original creative work that reflects the care and attention to detail of the artisan. Some of the people taking part will be working quietly at their stall and visitor can watch while they work. Most are more than willing to talk about what they make, and why they make their wares. There are historical crafts such as a smith, a glass blower, a sculptor, a book binder and a potter. The markets will offer a wide choice of original craft work: toys and puppets, paintings, pottery and decorated boxes, leather bags an belts, hand-made shoes and boots, 3-D caricatures, candles and beautifully painted Spanish roof tiles, and there are several stalls with jewellery in silver, macramé, brass, origami, ceramics, wood, bone, horn or enamel. There will also be a few stalls selling traditional foodstuffs such as cheese, dates and dried figs, honey, jams and typical Christmas sweets. For example: Toni, using a 200 kg mortar and a huge iron pestle, will show how to make genuine turrón, the soft nougat that is eaten by e very household at Christmas-time in Spain. In addition to the stalls there will be workshops for the younger visitor, where they will be shown how to use their own hands to create some original

Christmas decorations. There will be ponies on which children can ride round the fair, an old fashioned merry-go-round and wooden table top games. All around the square are bars and restaurants and the old town has quite a few picturesque streets, cosy

little squares, pretty town houses and quite a few craft shops. Between the craft fair and the old towns both Altea and Calpe are the perfect places to find original Christmas presents. Both Christmas Fairs start on Thursday 8th December at 11am. Thursday, Friday and Saturday the opening times are from 11am until 10 pm, and on Sunday 11th December from 11am to 2pm. For further information call 639 979 678 and speak to Elvira who speaks English or see pictures from other fairs Amata has organised on its webpage, also in English, at: www.amata.es

INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL MATTERS US ELECTION – Where do we go from here? n Wednesday we all woke up to the news that Donald Trump will be the 45th US President, for those that had believed what the Newspapers, most TV channels and the Polls were saying this was a shock, for those who had looked deeper it wasn´t such a shock.

O

The question is now will it trigger another recession? What is certain, and this was the case even before the UK Brexit vote is we are in a period of unprecedented political risk. There is a surge in anti‐establishment sentiment. In the US now the Republicans also have control of congress and a majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, which is potentially a good thing as it can remove the US political gridlock that has been there throughout the Obama administration. In the US the likelihood of a US rate rise in December or early next year is now falling, the Dollar is weakening and the knee jerk market sell off is likely to be short lived as there is a considerable amount of money out there waiting to “buy the dip”.

The sectors that should do well are consumer and infrastructure. All the above should be making the EU leaders quake in their boots, as the EU has more than enough problems of its own, we have the Italian Constitutional Referendum on 4th December which is the 1st hurdle, then elections in France, Germany and Holland next year.

WEEKLY EURO UPDATE As expected it was a rather slow start to the week with everyone waiting for Wednesday’s autumn statement from chancellor Philip Hammond, which considering Brexit is considered to carry more weight than usual. Prior to Chancellor of the Exchequer Phillip Hammonds Autumn Statement- his inaugural major Commons event; speculation was mounting that he would announce measures designed to soften the blow of the BREXIT vote in June. As a result of Brexit growth predictions have changed as was widely expected with the Office for Budget Responsibility upgrading UK growth in 2016 to 2.1% from 2.0% and downgrading to 1.4% in 2017 from 2.2%. Among the popular announcements was a freeze in fuel duty and more funds available for housing, transport and digital infrastructure. Although, historically, Budgets/Autumn Statements rarely have an effect on the FX market, investors still felt the need to take GBP higher over the course of the day with rises of approximately 1% across the board. To wrap up, the Euro finished on a low again this week, largely due to

political uncertainty surrounding Europe and the damaging effect it could have on future financial stability. Reaching a low of 1.0517 versus USD on Wednesday it was the weakest level for the Euro for 12 months. It was also the Euro’s weakest level versus GBP for two months. To offer some conviction French and German PMI figures for services and manufacturing sectors were broadly in line with forecasts. After paying tribute to former chancellor George Osborne’s work towards cutting the country’s budget deficit, Philip Hammond spoke about the government’s “commitment to fiscal discipline.” Crucially however, the pace of budget tightening over the next 3 years will be slowed, which gave the pound a boost against a basket of currencies, namely the Euro. As a result the Pound continued its gains and hit the highest level versus the Euro since September. There were no surprises in Wednesday’s Autumn Forecast statement, with the UK budget deficit likely to increase by an extra £122 billion by 2019/20. In addition GDP forecasts could reduce for 2017 and 2018 with Brexiteers believing government maybe too negative.

Exports slump follows historic highs Spanish exports reached a historic high in the first nine months of 2016, growing year-on-year in terms of revenue by 1.2 percent. Data published by the Secretary of State for Commerce recently shows that foreign trade has generated €188.49 billion so far this year. What the figures don’t show is that Spain seems to be caught up in the overall slowdown of global trade. The country is performing better than most of its competitors, but its overseas sales have been decelerating steadily since July, to the point that in September, growth was zero. That said, only Germany and Italy have registered export growth so far this year – of 1 percent and 0.5 percent respectively – while the UK’s has fallen by 4.5 percent, France, a 1.5 percent dip, the United States, 5 percent, China, 6.8 percent, and Japan, a hefty 9.2 percent. From January to September, Spanish exports to the European Union grew by 3.9 percent: the EU is far and away the country’s biggest market, making up 66.5 percent of the country’s overseas trade. But sales to the rest of the world have fallen: by 2.3 percent to the United States, by 1.4 percent to Japan, by 8.2 percent to South Korea, by 25.1 percent to Saudi Arabia, and by 11.35 percent to Latin America. By contrast, there has been growth in exports to China (11.8 percent), to Canada (9.1 percent), to Morocco (15 percent) and to Chile, where growth was 3.3 percent. Until recently, China was investing in mainly German machinery and equipment, but as its growth model shifts toward greater internal consumption, there is growing demand for consumer goods and foodstuffs. Spain’s newly installed Secretary of State for Commerce, María Luisa Poncela, said that China is helping boost Spanish exports at a time when

Chinese imports are declining. She added that she expected Canada’s new trade agreement with the European Union will help further improve trade. In the wake of this summer’s Brexit vote, exports to the UK seem to be falling, due in large part to a weaker pound. Trade rose by 8.8 percent over the course of the year, but fell by 1.5 percent in September. In August it barely rose by 1.2 percent, a significant slowdown on the previous 12 months. Competitive market Although Spanish exports grew by 3.2 percent in volume in the first nine months of the year, the 2 percent fall in prices amid a highly competitive market translated into a 1.2 percent growth in terms of revenue. Imports grew by 2.7 percent, but prices fell by 4.2 percent, which explains the 1.6 percent fall in imports. As a result, between January and September, Spain’s trade deficit was around €13.2 billion, 29 percent lower than for the same period in 2015. In large part the improvement is due to falling prices, and particularly the collapse of oil prices. Spain’s energy import costs have fallen by 30 percent up to September, the same proportion as the improvement in its trade balance. That said, the increase in crude prices is beginning to be felt: September’s figures show that the cost of energy imports fell by 19 percent, compared to the 30 percent figure for the rest of the year. The automotive and food industries have contributed the most to Spain’s exports, growing by 8.5 percent and 6.2 percent more, respectively. The Secretary of State for Commerce says the 8 percent increase in capital goods represents “the modernization of units and an advance indicator of activity.”

Sometimes if a plant is overwatered, it just does not seem to recover afterwards. The leaves start to get dull and turn yellow and the whole plant seems to be on a slippery slope towards death. You try to correct the watering issue but nothing seems to help. Chances are your plant is suffering from root rot.

What is root rot? Root rot can have two sources, one is a prolonged exposure to overwatered conditions can cause some of the roots to die back due to a lack of oxygen. As they die, they will start to decay or rot away. The rot can then spread to healthier roots and kill them as well, even if the soil conditions are corrected. The other source can be from a fungus in the soil. The fungus may lay dormant in soil for years and then may suddenly flourish when the plant is overwatered once or twice. The root rot fungus attacks the roots and causes them to die and rot away.

Root rot prevention Control of root rot should be aimed at prevention. Use only healthy transplants. Weak plants may be diseased and you certainly will not save time or money in the end if you use weak plants. Since poor drainage usually goes hand in hand with root rot, proper site preparation to provide good water drainage away from roots is imperative. Rotate annual plantings in the garden every 2 or 3 years with unrelated plants to help prevent the buildup of pathogens in one area. Also, remove crop residue at the end of the season to help reduce pathogen survival.

Other measures of precaution: 1. Plant resistant cultivars when available. 2. Set out transplants when soil has warmed up enough for good growth. 3. Enrich soil with compost. 4. Try not to cultivate close to roots which can cause injury and allow disease to enter. 5. Plant in well-drained soil and avoid overwatering. 6. Make sure water does not pool around the base of trees by forming irrigation moats to hold water at least 12 inches (30 cm) away from the stems or trunks. 7. Use soil solarization before planting as it has been shown to give good results in controlling root rot. Treating root rot Whether the problem is prolonged overwatering or a single overwatering that caused a root rot fungus flare up, you must act quickly. Remove and destroy badly infected plants. They will normally not survive anyway, but can often be propagated so they will not be lost completely. Moderately affected plants may be saved by pruning away diseased roots and replanting in well-drained soil. Treating root rot ASAP will give your plant the best chance to survive: 1. Remove the plant from the soil and wash the roots under running water. Wash away as much soil and affected roots as possible

CostaBlancaPeople Nov 29th - December 5th 2016

while being gentle with the plant. 2. Dispose of the soil that the plant was in. 3. Use a sharp, clean pair of shears or scissors to trim away all of the remaining affected roots. You may have to remove a significant amount of the root system. 4. Disinfect the shears or scissor and prune back 1/3 to 1/2 of the top growth on the plant. This will give the plant a better chance to re-grow the roots as it will not need to support as much top growth. 5. If possible, dip the remaining healthy roots in a fungicide solution to kill off any possible root rot fungus.

6. Disinfect all pots or tools used on or around infected plants using a 1 part bleach to 9 parts water solution. 7. Replant the plant in clean soil/potting mix. If the plant is in a pot, make sure the container has good drainage and only water the plant when the top of the soil is dry. While the plant is re-growing its roots, do not fertilize the plant, as this may stress it. You do not want to have to treat root rot again in the plant. Hopefully now the plant will recover and you will get your beautiful plant back. Marc Vijverberg

€3000 to help

Los Montesinos families

Sue Gibson and eight of the members of her Suzi4fitz fitness and dance group are proud and humbled to donate €3000 to the Mayor and Director of Social Services of the town of Los Montesinos. Earlier this year in April, Sue produced her latest show ‘Dances Through The Decades’ at the School of Music Auditorium in the town, which ran for two nights. Both nights were virtually sold out and the money raised from ticket sales along with two other functions run by the group this

year, enabled them to raise this fantastic amount.

The money was split into five donations, which was handed over to five of the local shops in

the town, including three supermarkets, a butchers and a fishmongers. The disadvantaged families living in the town, will be given food vouchers by Social Services enabling them to go and purchase essential items in any of the allocated shops to help them through the winter. Sue would like to thank all who were involved with her show along with those who went to watch it and is so pleased that the proceeds will be used to benefit those that need it the most.

Christmas starts here The Christmas Concert which has long been known by audiences as 'CHRISTMAS STARTS HERE' will be given by the award-winning IN HARMONY Chamber Choir on Sunday 11th December at 7.30pm. This well-loved concert, which also gives festive audiences the opportunity to sing many wellknown Christmas carols, will take place at the Iglesia Santa Maria del Mar, just off La Zenia roundabout. IN HARMONY have long been the leading choral group on the Costa and are wellknown for their many local performances in both liturgical and popular music. Their

Christmas concert will include several recently composed pieces of great beauty as well as many famous carols loved by audiences across the world. The concert is conducted by local professional musician,

Nigel Hopkins, and will also feature well-loved local soloists Verity Hall and Mary Beer. Why not join in celebrating the start of the Christmas season in a truly traditional style? The welcoming ambience of the beautiful La Zenia church entwined with the most wonderful music, and the opportunity to have a really good sing await all those who come along on December 11th. Tickets are available only at La Ponderosa Gift Shop at La Zenia C.C. and are limited, so patrons are urged to acquire them soon to avoid disappointment.

Do You Surf Here Often...! Mary Coughlan (the singing one) has a great song where she is placing an advertisement for a man, using just a contact number. I believe that many men and women, of all ages, are now using this method in the search for the perfect match. I suppose disillusionment with the disco scene, coupled with busy lifestyles has encouraged many people to cut to the chase and advertise their wares. I hasten to add that I am not in this market myself, but this has not stopped me from doing a little bit of research on your behalf. Anything I wasn’t sure of, I put to the floor in Paddy’s Point, where a mixed group gave me some surprising answers. No folks, cupid’s arrow does not fly straight and true on the love-sick pages of Buy ‘N Sell, numerous magazines, or on the internet either. Everything is not as it seems. I am about to advance your education in the love-stakes. Young children please look away now! Like any other advertisement, a “lonely heart” is selling something, so for the purpose of this exercise we shall refer to the advertiser as ‘the seller’ and the person replying as ‘the buyer’. You only have to look at any ‘for sale’ ad in this newspaper to see that the seller puts the best gloss on their product, no matter what is being offered and the product of love is no exception! This is where caution is required! No, indeed, all is not as it appears and you need the ability to read between the lines. You need help and that is where this column comes in. Let’s start with a lady ‘seller’. “Fortyish”

means 49 and she will probably be 50 in December. “Large Frame”, “Feminist”, “Cuddly” or “Voluptuous” means fat. “Athletic” means she doesn’t have a chest. “Beautiful” means that you cannot believe a word she says. You won’t find any “ugly” sellers, which means you have to be more than careful with “average looking”. Likewise with “considered good-looking”, because you won’t find any of the ‘considerers’ signing their names to the advert. “Friendship to Start” means that she is trying to give up her bad habits – starting with you. “Open-minded” can be good and it can be bad. In a nutshell, she is desperate and you can expect .., well …, openness. “Old fashioned Values” is the opposite of “openness” and you can expect the openness of the former to be closed here. “Outgoing” means she will be loud and embarrassing and in your face. When you read “emotionally secure” you might think you have found a woman just like Mammy. Wrong! This one has come out of a bad relationship and is on medication. Fast Forward: In spite of all the pit-falls above, you manage to find a date with the woman who looks like being the love of your life: Just hold on a minute; you are not out of the wood yet! There are a few more important things you need to remember. Here are the main ones: “Yes” can mean no; “Maybe” means no; “No” means maybe; “We need” equals I want: “We need to talk” means she caught you out; “Sure, go ahead” means go

anywhere except ahead; “Do whatever you like” means there will be an awful price to pay if you do. “No, I am not upset”, translates to, can’t you see I’m upset, you total gobshite. “You’re very frisky tonight” means, I know what’s on your mind and do you ever think of anything else! Now girls, if the ‘seller’ is a man, what do you have to watch out for? “Outgoing”, he is not only loud and embarrassing, but a bit of a bo***x. “Professional” means he would make two of the last category. If he is “openminded”, it is you he expects to have all the windows and doors in your brain open. “Adventurous” and he is bragging so be prepared for fun and games. “Friendship at first” means he is probably half way through impotency therapy. “New age” means he has hair in all the wrong places and he smells. Oh, one thing I nearly forgot about “openminded” above – he could be married. OK, so, in spite of the minefield you have come through, you are on your third date with this hunk. Now, you need to be able to decode man-talk! “I am hungry” is a direct translation and means, I am hungry. “I am tired” means I am tired.” I am sleepy” means I am sleepy.

For every woman who makes a fool out of a man, there is another woman who makes a man out of a fool.

Visit to PONFERRADA with Vivalia Travel Ponferrada is the capital city of El Bierzo in the Province of León, Spain. It lies on Sil River and it is completely surrounded by mountains. It is the last major town on the French route of the Camino de Santiago before it reaches Santiago de Compostela.

PONFERRADA is the capital city of El Bierzo in the Province of León, Spain. It lies on Sil River and it is completely surrounded by mountains. It is the last major town on the French route of the Camino de Santiago before it reaches Santiago de Compostela. History In pre-Roman times the region was populated by the Astures, a Hispano-Celtic Gallaecian people. They were conquered by Emperor Augustus in the AsturCantabrian Wars (29-19 BC) and the area quickly became the largest mining center of the Empire during the Roman period, where gold and other metals and minerals were extracted. Numerous Roman mining sites are still visible in the area, one of the most spectacular being Las Médulas, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. Romans also imported grapevines, and wine production thrived in the region until the propagation of Phylloxera at the end of the 19th century, which destroyed the majority of the vineyards. The modern name of the city derives from the iron reinforcements added to the ancient bridge over the river Sil, commissioned by Bishop Osmundo of Astorga to facilitate the crossing of the Sil River to pilgrims in their way to Santiago de Compostela. The railroad arrived in Ponferrada in 1881, and during World War I local tungsten deposits were exploited to supply the arms industry. In 1918 the Ponferrada Mining, Iron and Steel Company was founded to exploit coal deposits in the region, and it grew to become Spain's largest coal mining corporation. Starting in the late 1980s most mines were closed, and after the collapse of the mining industry Ponferrada was for a

while in a crisis. However, in the late 1990s the city underwent a major transformation with the establishment in the city of several industrial and services firms, the reintroduction of

the city in their way to Santiago de Compostela. Las Médulas, ancient Roman gold mines also included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site List, are only a few kilometres away from the city.

commercial wine production, the opening of a local branch of the University of León offering several undergraduate degrees, and in general a radical improvement of the town's infrastructure. The economy is now based mainly on tourism, agriculture (fruit and wine), wind power generation and slate mining, with a mild but constant population increase. Important factors contributing to the recent boom of the tourism industry are the increasing popularity of the Way of St. James (Spanish: Camino de Santiago; a pilgrimage route that goes from France to Santiago de Compostela, Galicia), the designation in 1997 of Las Médulas as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the development of rural tourism lodging and wineries in the area. Tourism Ponferrada lies in the Way of St. James, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and every year many pilgrims pass through

Ponferrada is also noted for its Castillo de los Templarios, a Templar castle which covers approximately 16,000 square meters. In 1178, Ferdinand II of León donated the city to the Templar order for protecting the pilgrims on the Way of St. James who passed through El Bierzo in their road to Santiago de Compostela. The castle hosted the Knights Templar's Grand Master of Castille. However, the Templars were only able to enjoy the use of their fortress for about twenty years before the order was disbanded and its properties confiscated in 1311. Several noble houses fought over the assets until Alfonso XI allotted them to the Count of Lemos in 1340. Finally the Catholic Monarchs incorporated Ponferrada and its castle into the Crown in 1486. As with many other historical sites in Europe, many of the blocks that at one point formed the walls of the castle were removed and used in local construction projects. Extensive restoration works are ongoing.

when constructors and builders went bankrupt or just disappeared and left the development unfinished. With this new Court Ruling in place, many Britons who lost their deposit to secure a property ‘off-plan’ and/or who made further stage payments can now claim back their lost monies. The average deposits paid were at least £60,000 and some much higher, as the companies involved were hit by Spain’s financial crisis in around 2008. Now Spain’s highest court is holding the banks responsible for the missing money deposited in their accounts which could allow British victims to claim back up to £4bn in

Mrs Stephanie Davis lost their deposits in the crash. One such person caught in these tragic circumstances was Stephanie Davis and her late husband who lost around 75,000 Euros. They intended buying their ‘place in the sun’ on the Costa del Sol and had paid this as a deposit plus several additional payments, totalling over half of

the150,000 Euros asking price. Stephanie now has her fingers crossed as she is now in the expert hands of Spanish Legal Reclaims of Barcelona, who are in the process of claiming her monies back. There is no language barrier for her either, as Spanish Legal Reclaims speak English and will handle the whole case on her behalf. With more Britons owning a holiday home in Spain than any other nationality, UK citizens were hit hard by Spain’s property crash. Spanish Legal Reclaims has unparalleled expertise in this area of law, and has formed a dedicated legal team to help non-Spaniards lodge a successful claim and win their money back on a no win, no fee basis and, as mentioned previously, they speak English.

A real treat for Christmas It’s sometimes said that the audience can make or sink a production. The audience watching Aladdin and The Magic Lamp on 18th November at the

Cardenal Belluga Theatre were most definitely there to have a good time. Stagestruck’s Christmas pantomime was an enjoyable mixture of traditional pantomime convention with a few Spanish twists. Throughout the two act performance, the audience, both young and old, were keen to take part. ‘It was quite difficult to keep a straight face,’ explained Aladdin, played by Blanca Helena Sierra, ‘when one of the children in the audience was joining in, but I was supposed to be under hypnosis at the time.’ There were a few comments from the adults in the audience too, but these also added to the comedy of what was a very entertaining show. There had

been no effort spared with the costumes and sets. The scene where Aladdin finds himself in jail was particularly well portrayed. Blanca (Aladdin) and Louise Thomas (Princess Jasmine) made a lovely couple and both

played their parts extremely well. Ian Smith performed admirably in his usual relaxed and individual style as Widow Twankey. There were a few baddies to choose from and the audience did not let them have an easy time. The town crier, Mike Farmer, was eagerly challenged with ‘we already know’ and became a very likeable ‘nasty’. Of course, the real villain of the peace was Abanazar, played by Alan Appleton. It

was a lovely twist at the end when he became the love interest of the only gay genie in the production, Joe Luker. Wishee Washee, Chrissie Wright, and the Emperor, Jim Speakman, gave very good performances and Joann Van Root, the Empress, received a standing ovation, to one of her songs. Perhaps particularly touching was the plight of the poor Fairy, Rita Naughton, who discovered her magic qualities had been replaced by the genie. However, she was able to help out in the end and ensure that everyone lived happily ever after. Well done to all of Stagestruck for this enjoyable and entertaining Christmas performance. Suzanne O’Connell

How to cope with cold feet, when buying a home. Rebecca Serwotka – Your favourite local property expert, of Inmobiliaria Real Estate Agents in Ciudad Quesada & published author of “Moving Forward – 25 Essential Rules For Buying & Selling Real Estate Without Going Crazy.” Request your FREE copy today! Buying your dream home is an exciting time in anyone’s life…you’ve saved up your hard earned money, and now the time has arrived to make your dream a reality. For many of us, this is the best time, but for others it can be a feeling of “oh my goodness, what have we done!” This feeling doesn’t actually mean there’s something wrong, or that you shouldn’t carry on, and complete your purchase. It’s only your mind playing Devil’s advocate, making you question your judgment with “What ifs…” Here’s how to make sure those questions can be put to rest, so you can make this journey an exciting one, and not one to be afraid of. If you’re unsure about how much your legal costs will be, make sure those questions have already been answered, long before you’ve even put your offer forward. No-one wants to receive a hefty bill after you’ve completed, so get that “peace of mind information,” from the start. If you’re scared you could be paying too much, think about other homes you’ve already seen in your price range. Ask your Real Estate Agent to show you comparable home prices. This will reinforce your decision to buy at the price you’ve offered, again allowing those butterflies of excitement, to carry you through your purchase. If you’re in the mindset of “maybe a better house will come on the market,” you need to stop second guessing yourself. Don’t you remember how many

homes you’ve looked at online, before you fell in love with the one you have chosen? You need to give yourself a pat on the back, and remind yourself of all the legwork you did upfront. Hey, raise your hand high, because he’s a high five from me! And, if you’re still afraid you’re going to miss out on your dream home, ask yourself how happy you are with the home you are buying, on a scale of 1 to 10. An 8 or higher, you’re making a great purchase. Think about this…. You could be looking for a year and never find a 10. If you think you’re taking on more than you can cope with regarding any renovations, ask yourself if you need to do the whole house in one go, or could you live in the home, and make the improvements one room at a time. Always start with something easy, like painting the master bedroom. You’ll soon feel very satisfied at what you’ve achieved. So stop doubting your decision, look to the future with your head held high, and make your purchase a happy adventure. I’m sure you’re choice will be perfect!

For more information and guidance on buying and selling, please contact us and we will send you our FREE e-book or log on to: www.homes4u.es/new-kindle-e-book to request the link. Think property?

Guardamar Town Hall and local opticians fight blindness The Guardamar Town Hall has launched a campaign to prevent blindness by bringing together several local opticians to offer free eye tests until the 16th of December. They are inviting all local residents to visit their nearest optician during this period to take advantage of the free eye tests and make sure that eyes are healthy and that their vision is good. One of the participating opticians Specsavers

Opticas on Avenida Pais Valenciano is delighted to be part of this important campaign and hopes that everyone will make the time to get their eyes tested. “There are approximately 285 million people worldwide who live with impaired vision and blindness. Of these, 39 million people are blind and 246 million have moderate or severe visual impairment, yet 80% of visual impairment is avoidable through treatment and protective measures. This shows just how important it is to take steps to prevent avoidable blindness from conditions such as glaucoma, age related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.”, explains Francisco Manuel Jurado Alonso, Store Director of Specsavers Opticas in Guardamar. “All of these conditions and many others can be easily identified with a complete eye test and early diagnosis is crucial to effective treatment and avoiding permanent vision loss.If necessary, the optometrist will refer you directly for further medical examination with an Ophthalmologist or doctor. We hope that the residents of Guardamar will participate in the Town Hall’s excellent programme to prevent blindness and go and get their eyes tested between 21st of November and the 16th of December – this is an important health check as well as simply because you think you may need glasses.” Specsavers OpticasGuardamar is located in Avda. País Valenciano 43-Bajo, Guardamar del Segura, Alicante, 03140. Call 965 083 273 to book an eye test or visit www.specsavers.es for more information.

Building the Worlds Most Luxurious Ship – Channel 5 – 10.00pm

Documentary series about the engineers, designers and constructors racing to build the Seven Seas Explorer, which is claimed to be world's most luxurious ship. A suite may come with a grand piano, a personal butler and its own spa, and a price tag of £8,000 per night, but despite these prices, the maiden voyage is sold out long before the ship is complete. With the deadline looming, can the engineers deliver the £360m superliner in time for the first cruise?

Miracle on 34th Street – Channel 4 – 6.35 pm

Richard Attenborough stars in Les Mayfield's charming remake of the 1947 classic as Kris Kringle, who insists he really is Santa Claus. Kringle gets a job at Cole's department store on 34th Street thanks to toy department executive Dorey Walker, who, like her daughter Susan, doesn't believe in Santa Claus. But such is Kringle's success that a rival store, which is losing money, decides to have him declared insane for his insistence on his identity. The case comes to trial, with Bryan Bedford, Dorey's wouldbe-suitor, acting for Kringle, out to prove that he really is Santa Claus, knowing that failure will break the hearts of children all over the world.

83 year-old makes 930th parachute jump An 83-year-old lady from Barcelona has just completed her 930th sole parachute jump – and says she has no plans to give up her favourite sport for a long while yet. Montse Mechó was 49 when she first leapt out of a plane, and at the time, tandem jumps had not yet been invented. This means that, unlike all other beginners who are bodily strapped to an instructor with at least one spare parachute, and who does all the work for

the new skydiver, Montse had to go it alone – making the decision to jump from the open door of the aircraft and pulling her own parachute cord at the right moment. Luckily, she was already used to challenging sports that require a fearless constitution; she had competed in the Spanish national swimming and trampolining finals, and went on to win both after her first few skydives.

Aged 80, she featured in a video advertisement for insurance company Aviva, which was subtitled in English. Separated from her husband decades ago, Montse lives alone and struggles to survive on a pension of just €245 a month – and although just one parachute jump can cost nearly this much, she has become such an ambassador for her local drop zone that they let her do it for free. She has been named ambassador

elsewhere, too – the GAES Te Cuida campaign, which aims to promote healthy habits among pensioners and encourage them to follow a varied and balanced diet, has chosen Montse as its mascot. Montse started out her active life with ballet classes, then persuaded her mother to let her start swimming lessons with the help of a local grant. She became one of the country's pioneers in practising synchronised swimming, and went on tour nationally and abroad with major competitions in Marseille and Grenoble under her belt, but gave it all up to get married and have her two children. Taking the plunge Back in 1982, Montse visited her son's surfing school and he talked her into doing a parachute jump, which she accepted – even though, back then, there was no such thing as skydiving instructors or tandem jumps. She has gone on to compete nationally in parachuting

competitions, carrying out stunts in the air, even skydiving out of a hot-air balloon and taking part in contests in Arizona (USA), Turkey and Finland, representing Catalunya. During the presentation of her title of ambassador for GAES, Montse urged pensioners to practice sports such as aqua-aerobics, swimming, going to the gym, or even just taking a walk along the beach. “You should never give up sports and, if you've never done any, you're still in time even if you're middle-aged or elderly – just do what you can to enjoy the sea, countryside, mountains and fresh air, because after all, they're yours and everyone else's, and they don't cost a thing,” Montse said in her speech. “I just keep going the best I can, like other pensioners,” Montse revealed. And parachuting helps keep her spirits up when the rest of her life seems to be in freefall, she says.

German murderer detained in Spain A man who murdered his partner and fled from Germany with his 18 month old baby has been arrested in Spain. A macabre tattoo on the man’s shoulder includes the name of the victim, Lisa, her date of and the date it is believed the man killed her. Underneath are the words ‘Gracias por todo’ or ‘Thank you for everything’. The crime was committed in Germany and his arrest was made in Girona. After cutting the throat of his partner, he fled with their baby, and used his partner’s phone to post messages on the social networks to give the illusion she was still alive. The National Police in Lloret de Mar, Girona, detained the German fugitive accused of murdering his 20 year old partner to death in Freyung, Germany, after which he fled to Spain with his 18 month old baby in his arms. According to the National Police, the presumed killer was spotted and detained in an apartment hotel in Lloret de Mar, where he was staying: the Judicial Police of Alicante participated in the investigation. The incident took place less than a month ago, but the detectives have been unable to give a firm date. The German Police discovered the cadaver in the couple’s home in the Bavarian

region of Germany. It had been put into several rubbish bags and a deep cut to the neck was identified as the cause of death. Days later on 7th November, when on the Facebook profile of the victim the suspect placed a photo of him with his son next to the Eiffel Tower; the German judicial authorities issued a European arrest and extradition order while the German Police contacted the Spanish National Police, on the suspicion the fugitive had reached Spain, aiming towards Morocco. The first clue came when it was discovered that the fugitive had been sleeping in a hotel in Tarifa, signing in with his brother’s name. The next clue came when two 500 euro cash withdrawals were made on the same day from machines in

Valladolid, and another at motorway service area on the AP7 when he was detected as using two tool booths in Torreblanca, Castellón and later in Martorell, Barcelona. It was vital that the baby be found safe and well and a protection order was issued immedatley. Once the Police had made the arrest, the baby was transferred to a children’s centre in Cataluña, until the German social services arrive. The detained fugitive had several tattoos, and what appears to have been most recent was the most macabre. Although the tattoo was fairly recent the police believe that it was received prior to the murder, which shows clear pre-meditation and intent on behalf of the murderer.

Banoffee paella As if Jamie Oliver’s paella with chorizo was not enough to upset Valencia's culinary purists, the latest parody on the region’s most famous dish – also invented in the UK – is banoffee paella. And, in fact, the only connection it has to the original recipe is the paella pan it is cooked in – none of the ingredients of the traditional dish are included, not even rice! A dubious creation by top baker Dominique Ansel, inventor of the 'cronut' – a cross-breed between a croissant and a doughnut – the banoffee paella was made to celebrate the opening of his eponymous cake and pastry shop in London. Even die-hard defenders of Valencian paella and its hundreds of varieties – none of which are desserts, nor include chorizo – would have trouble dissing the banoffee

version after they had tried it, however. Reports claim it is ‘deliciously sticky’, loaded with toffee cream, bananas, and butter with a crispy salted butter biscuit crumble topping designed to look a little bit like rice. Ansel first put the banoffee paella on sale in his flagship bakery in New York to celebrate its fifth anniversary as a limitededition dish ‘until sold out’, then launched in the new branch in the UK capital. Far from the flood of criticisms of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s ‘abomination’ making Britain think twice about messing around with paella recipes – criticisms so harsh, in fact, that the UK ambassador for Spain, Simon Manley, had to intervene – this latest version takes the joke even farther. As yet though, no backlash has been forthcoming from Valencians.

Spanish ski resorts open early Ski resorts in Spain started opening from this Saturday – even earlier than last year, which is hoped to make up for a drop in visitors over the 2015-2016 season. A total of 4.74 million people hit the slopes last season, some 6.6 percent fewer than the previous year, thanks to a snow shortage in the first few weeks and poor weather on some of the slopes, especially those in Aragón where sleet, high winds and snowstorms left the pistes empty on the last few days of the season. Income from skiers also fell, partly due to a concerted effort on the part of slope managers to keep prices down – the average visitor spent 9 percent less than the year before - €20.44 instead of €22.53. Typically, hiring skis, poles and boots comes in at around €17, and a lift pass about €21, with insurance for equipment damage an extra €5 and medical cover €3. Many ski slopes have private emergency health clinics on site, meaning a SIP card – valid for free healthcare in all State hospitals and GP surgeries in Spain – does not cover treatment at the resort, but a very small fee ensures skiers are covered. As a result, skiing is relatively affordable in Spain for the infrequent visitor, or more regular participants who have their own equipment. Some ski stations, including those managed by Aramón.es in Aragón, are already offering discounted lift passes for the entire season at around €360, a substantial saving for those who hit the slopes every weekend. According to the Association of Ski

Station and Mountain Tourism (ATUDEM), if weather conditions and snow levels had been more in its favour last year, the number of visitors would have been around 6.6 million, equal to the best season on record so far, that of 2008-2009. The six stations which opened on Saturday, 26th November are: the Pyrénéen resorts of Cerler and Formigal, in the province of Huesca, Aragón;

Baqueira Beret (Lleida) and La Molina (Girona), both in Catalunya; the Sierra Nevada, in the province of Granada and – although not Spain, very close by – that of Grandvalira in Andorra. Other than the Sierra Nevada, most ski resorts are in the north of Spain – even in Madrid – and many are a short drive from major cities; Javalambre and Valdelinares, in the province of Teruel, are approximately two hours from Valencia, making a day trip to the pistes very feasible for residents on the Mediterranean coast. Tickets for the 'Bus

Blanco' ('white bus') are already on sale with trips running from 5th December. The 'Bus Blanco' leaves from Valencia at around 07.00 on weekends and heads straight for Javalambre and Valdelinares, stopping in Sagunto (north of Valencia) en route, and another coach departs at the same time from Zaragoza (Aragón) towards the stations in Huesca. Deals can include equipment hire and lessons, and offer either day return trips or overnight stays. Later openeings The 1st December will see another two stations opening in Spain, both in the centre-northern province of León – Leitariegos and San Isidro. The resort of Boí Taüll, in Lleida, has invested €1.8 million – of which €1.6m was provided by the regional government of Catalunya – in improving its facilities, most of which has been spent on a snowmaking machine and another vehicle for flattening the pistes, plus a hands-free access system. Along with two other Lleida resorts – Port Ainé and Espot Esquí – Boí Taüll will open on 2nd December. The last one to confirm its opening date so far is Vallter 2000 in the province of Girona, a short drive from the sun-drenched Costa Brava. Many of the slopes are highly recommended for complete beginners, so there no excuse for not enjoying the winter fun.

IVF calculator A new ‘IVF calculator’ can predict a couple's success of conceiving a baby, experts have said. The tool, which can be used by doctors or people seeking fertility treatment, can estimate a couple's chance of having a baby before and after first IVF treatment, and over multiple cycles. Writing in The BMJ, researchers led by the University of Aberdeen describe how the calculator could ‘help to shape couples' expectations’. It takes into account the age of a woman, how many years she has been trying to conceive, whether she has an ovulation problem, an unexplained fertility issue or whether there is a male fertility problem among other factors. The tool is based on data from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) which collects information on all licensed fertility treatments in the UK. The researchers analysed data from all women who started IVF and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in the UK from 1999 to 2008 using their own eggs and partner's sperm. They found that of 114,000 women who completed almost 185,000 cycles of treatment, 29.1 percent had a live birth following their first cycle. And 43 percent had a baby following six cycles of treatment. They found that the chances of a couple having a baby declined after the woman reached the age of 30 and decreased with increasing duration of infertility. The data was then put into the calculator to predict IVF success. For example, the calculator predicts that a 30-year-old woman with two years of unexplained infertility has a 46 percent chance of having a live birth from the first complete cycle of IVF and a 79 percent chance over three complete cycles. The calculator can be found at w3.abdn.ac.uk/clsm/opis.

Age-defying tips for a longer and healthier life 1. Lift Weights Scientists once believed that nothing could be done about the withering of muscles associated with ageing. Then, in 1990, a study was published by the August Krogh Institute in Denmark that indicated there was one group of ageing athletes who maintained the strength of men half their age: weight lifters. Studies from Tufts University in Boston confirmed that muscle and bone loss could be stopped and even reversed through weight training. After lifting weights twice a week for a year, a group of postmenopausal women in their 50s and 60s made gains in bone density, and their scores on strength tests soared to levels more typical of women in their late 30s. 2. Go for a Walk Even if you’re 50 and have never taken part in a physical activity, a brisk half-hour walk three times a week can basically reverse your physiological age by about ten years, or so claims a three-year study of 220 retirement-age men. In the study half didn't exercise and the other half walked briskly for 30 minutes three times a week. After a year, the exercise group showed a 12 percent increase in aerobic power and a ten percent increase in strength and hip flexibility, equivalent to what they would have lost over a decade had they not exercised at all. 3. Quit smoking If you quit smoking by age 30, your survival rate can rival that of lifelong non-smokers, according to a report in the British Medical Journal. Quit by 50 and you have half the risk continuing smokers have of dying in the next 15 years. Even if you've already developed a smoking-related health condition,

you'll benefit. People who quit smoking after having a heart attack reduce their chances of having another by about 30 percent.

high-fat diet, they showed severe impairment on learning and memory tasks, a finding that has since been proven for humans as well.

4. Be a Nutritional Star If you're looking to turn back the clock on your body experts advise eating a broadly based diet that packs a nutritional punch: Dark-green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli and Swiss chard (calcium, iron, folate and beta-carotene). Sweet potatoes (folate, beta-carotene, vitamins A and C, and fibre). Blueberries and other dark berries (vitamin C, iron and fibre). Yoghurt (calcium, protein and phosphorus). Beans (iron and a highfibre form of protein). Whole grains (higher in fibre than white bread, with more B vitamins, vitamin E, selenium and zinc). Nuts - eating them more than five times a week could cut death rates from heart disease by 25 to 39 percent. Salmon, tuna and other coldwater fish (omega-3 fatty acids).

7. Don't Get Too Much Sleep While too little sleep can leave you exhausted, too much isn't healthy either, according to University of California researchers. They followed more than a million Americans for six years and discovered that people who snoozed eight hours a night had up to 13 percent increased mortality over those who slept seven hours, while those who slept four hours had a risk of death that was as much as 17 percent higher.

5. Don't Forget Your Vitamins As we age our bodies become less efficient at absorbing nutrients. A multivitamin with minerals will help you get them, she says, though it's no substitute for a healthy diet. Foods contain important components like fibre that you won't get from a pill. On top of your multivitamin consider calcium to help build strong bones; vitamin D to aid in the absorption of calcium and the prevention of osteoarthritis; and vitamin E to boost your immune response and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. 6. Take It Easy on the Fat Research indicates that a low-fat diet can protect your ability to learn and remember. In tests when lab rats ate a

8. Challenge Your Mind Stimulating mental activities, such as learning a foreign language, reading a challenging book, playing bridge or attending a lecture may keep you mentally alert as you age. People who do more of these things in older adulthood tend to develop dementia at a lower rate. 9. Take up an Instrument Musical training fundamentally changes the development of children's brains, but ageing adults can benefit from taking up (or returning to) an instrument, or at least listening to their favourite tunes. The reason? Intense musical training forces the brain to recruit additional resources, working against dementia. 10. Spend Time with Your Friends If you can’t stand to jog and refuse to swear off chips and dip, here’s the good news: a poker game with your pals may be equally beneficial. When Thomas Glass, associate professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School

of Public Health in Baltimore, tracked participation by almost 3,000 people aged 65 and up in a range of activities over 13 years, he found that social engagements may add as much to your life span as healthy measures such as cutting cholesterol or lowering blood pressure. 11. Help Someone Else Several dozen studies show that

people who devote time to community efforts are happier and healthier in later years. So volunteer at a local charity group or shop or simply become a buddy to someone in your area who needs some support. Experts believe that when we help someone else there are probably a couple of things going on; one is that you're making friends and have a social circle; the other is the continued on page 63

psychological benefit of feeling useful and needed. 12. Adopt a Pet People, particularly as we age, who own pets are less likely to be depressed than those who don't, according to studies. The positive effects stem from the fact that pets force us to focus on something other than ourselves. Again there is the feeling that someone or something is relying on us and so we are useful and needed. Put simply it take our minds off our own aches and pains. 13. Look for the Silver Lining One quality most centenarians share, according to the large-scale New England Centenarian Study, is an ability to not dwell on difficulties. Stress provokes a physiological response that's hard on the body. Your body pumps out adrenaline and cortisol, which are meant to help you cope with danger in the short term but which can damage your immune system, heart and brain when you're constantly keyed up. Having an optimistic outlook really can add years on to your life. Practice yoga or relaxation techniques if you find it difficult to switch off. 14. Go to Church At last count, nearly 1,000 studies indicated that those who went to church, synagogue or mosque were healthier than their non-attending counterparts and tended to live longer by seven years, according to one study. While Jeff Levin, an epidemiologist and author of God, Faith, and Health: Exploring the Spirituality-Healing Connection, contends that some positive health effects extend from the restrictions religious groups may place on smoking, drinking and premarital or extramarital sex. However, Levin also believes that church provides a social network that supports the ageing and ill, and is a source of comfort.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor I live on El Raso in El Cortijo Real. Driving home along Calle Bovalar, one of El Raso's roads, on the evening of 21 Nov., at about 18:30, just before the play park, I heard a loud bang and a scraping noise. As one does, I stopped, got out to see what was amiss and found that there was a large amount of baling twine wrapped around a white stationary car on the other side of the road. Some idiot, (too kind a word?) had strung the twine across the road, about 1.50mtrs high between a lamp post and the opposite fence. It hit my windscreen, scraped along the roof bars until it hit my aerial and broke under the extreme stress. The twine was black. I did not see it at all. I could see no damage to the white car, but there are slight scratches on my car's roof bars where I believe the twine started its journey over the roof. The point is, if this “prank” had caught a runner or cyclist, serious injury would have been caused, perhaps even been fatal. I suppose some moronic individual thought it funny to do such a mindless act, which could have killed someone. It has been reported to the Guardia Civil in Guardamar. Syd Avery Dear Editor I am sending a couple of photos of the road leading to the new school at playa Flamenca it is dangerous and about time Orihuela council got it sorted. They just came along 12 months or so ago put up a no entry sign and an arrow sign didn’t bother with road markings or silly things like that the police just booked people for going the wrong way. You can bet your sweet life there are no roads like this in Orihuela or Alicante or Valencia in fact I know there isn't. It is really dangerous for the children and about time the council did something about it and forgot about the bullring in the city and spent the money on this road I hope you can print this and get it sorted

Yours Graham Haywood

Playa Flamenca

Dear Sir/Madam My wife and I have a home is in the Mariblanca Urbanization of Los Altos, and for some years we have enjoyed walking the coastline between The Nautilus Restaurant and La Valeta. The small bay at Cala Ferris was always the most attractive feature of this coastline, and has been one of the most photographed places in this area. It is now a smelly area covered (for almost the past two years) with seaweed which – in places – is now more than five feet high, and totally covers what was a sandy beach.. The spacious ground around this area has been reduced to a fraction of its former size due to fencing which – I assume – is a prerequisite to even more socalled development that will be started and probably, like all others in the area, left unfinished; even roadways and footpaths have been started and left unfinished – some in a dangerous condition. Can you report on what is going to happen at Cala Ferris and the area back from there to the N332, please? It seems that those responsible for this area have forgotten about it! What was once a beautiful area is now a smelly mess. There are still postcards of what the area once looked like, and it would be worth your taking pictures of it now. Yours, R. J. NEWMAN Dear Editor It would be good if you could give our Art Exhibition some publicity. From the 21st of November The Quesada Art Group are exhibiting their paintings at The Cultural Centre.

Dear Editor The recent "Reach Out" Christmas Fair at the Marina Bar Torrevieja raised a very acceptable1264 Euros. The support again was tremendous and organizers David & Lorraine Whitney were once again over the moon with the result. Together with their trusty volunteers and with the ongoing help of Dave and Rita Monaghan of the Marina Bar, the event surpassed the previous year and retains its place as an event not to be missed. With a surprise visit from Santa the children present were a joy to watch as they collected a present from the big man. The afternoon

was a testament to the generosity of people and thanks must go to all of the people who supported and donated items to this worthwhile charity. "Reach Out" who help the poor and homeless in the area. Dear Editor I am a pensioner/Widow who needs help from anyone with regard to legal inheritance, due to the death of my husband in November 2014. On April 17th 2015 I had an appointment with a Notary in Rojales to sign a DECLARATION IOF INHERITANCE in respect of my late husband’s will. It is now November 2016 and I am still waiting to receive this Declaration duty stamped and sealed. Is this a normal occurrence? I did write to the British Consulate but once again, no reply. I have been a legal president in Spain for 26 years in Spain for 26 years ans as a couple we always made sure we followed rules and regulations. I am desperate to finalise this matter, so any help would be most welcome. A very frustrated and unhappy pensioner.

version of the software that lets you print but nothing more. You can get the full download of the Epson software from the download section of their UK website Barbara via email asks: Hi Aunty. I have a fairly new Epson printer/scanner but whenever I print anything 2 thick black lines appears down one side of the page. I think this has only happened since I had a Windows 10 update install, but is that a possible cause? I also seem to have lost the option to check the ink levels or run a cartridge/head clean which also seems too much of a coincidence. I don’t want to fork out for a new set of cartridges

only to find that it has not fixed the problem. Aunty Says: This does sound like a faulty ink cartridge Barbara but we can’t rule out a Windows update problem. Try doing a test by using the b/w copy function of the printer as this does not use the computer and will eliminate any Windows or driver problems. The ink level and cleaning options are part of the Epson driver software and you may well find that the Windows Update has installed a cut down

Sue via email asks: Hello Aunty can you please help with my problem? Recently I downloaded a cleanup app as my laptop was running very slow but I have found loads of other additional apps that have installed but I had not asked for. My grandson has managed to remove some of them but they seem to come back and I’m now plagued with loads of advertising in Spanish. The worrying apps are Optimizer Pro and Delta. My laptop is a HP and I am using windows 10. Your advice would be appreciated. Aunty Says: Hi Sue. These 2 particular programs you have picked up are not technically virus and are sometimes known as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) but they will definitely cause you some big problems. I‘m pretty sure an updated Malwarebytes free will get rid of them so give it a try and let me know. Martin via email asks: Hello Aunty, 3 months ago I treated myself to a new Lenovo laptop and recently I am receiving notification that the trial version of my McAfee security program has expired. I don’t remember signing up for a free trial and I don’t know if I should pay, if it is safe to do this over the internet or just ignore it. What do you recommend? I am fairly new to computers so please explain in basic language Aunty Says: Hello Martin. The free trial from MacAfee was probably pre-installed on your laptop but it can also get installed when you updated your Adobe Reader. I’m still a big fan of Window Defender that comes prebundled with Windows 8.1 and 10, and to be extra safe I still recommend having a separate antispyware programs like the free Malwarebytes or Superantispyware. Any questions, you can email me at: auntyvirus@costablancapeople.com and hopefully see you all next week.

Huge motor home fraud uncovered The prosecutor has requested more than three years in prison for a businessman from Villafranqueza and his mechanic who ran the considerable fraud. The Alicante Provincial Court has called to testify some 40 witnesses in a major court case which opened recently. Two people are sitting on the accused bench, for the alleged crime of the fraudulent selling of motor homes. The company in Villafranqueza had advertised on the internet more than thirty motor homes which should have been scrapped after they were flooded during the storms which affected France in September 2008. These vehicles were sold via the internet across Spain, with people defrauded in 17 different Spanish provinces.

The mega case opened recently in the Third Section of the Alicante Provincial Court and is expected to last six days. On the accused bench, is the businessman and mechanic who are charged with fraud and the falsification of motor registration documents. The prosecutor wants both men to serve three years and three months. In addition, 25 people were under investigation from the ITV vehicle testing stations in Alicante and Benidorm for passing the motor homes. However, these were acquitted by the judge as it is possible that they failed to detect any anomalies in the vehicles during a routine inspection. Also being processed are five lawyers with personal accusations against them, the defrauded purchasers and the manufacturer

for the alleged damage to its brand. The floods occurred in September 2008 in the French locality of Tournon, where the headquarters for the motor home brand was located. A total of 414 vehicles were seriously flooddamaged and were unfit for driving, and should have been sent to the scrap yard. However, the scrap yard decided to resell 30 which were the least damaged, and sold them on the Internet at vastly lower prices. The Guardia Civil believes that the motor homes in question are the same vehicles as the ‘scrapped’ stock; showing signs of being immersed in water and the fabrics show deterioration in line with the time period between now and the flood.

Barcelona cabbie hands in €10,000 in cash 656

A taxi driver in Barcelona has handed in €10,000 in cash left behind in his cab by a Canadian tourist. According to the Mossos d'Esquadra – Catalunya’s answer to the Guardia Civil – the cabbie brought in a suitcase containing, among other items, the five-figure sum in euros and the Canadian's passport.

The incident happened at arounf 5pm last Saturday afternoon, and checking with the embassy, police found the tourist's accommodation details. He was staying at a hotel on the Passeig de Gràcia, an upmarket central street which is Barcelona's most famous shopping avenue. The Mossos returned the suitcase

to him intact at the hotel and explained the situation. They said the visitor was ‘extremely grateful’ for the taxi driver’s honesty – an action which is fairly typical in Spanish culture, despite the financial crisis, and which will make the cab driver an unofficial ambassador for Spain in Canada when the lucky tourist gets home.

Imanyo Golf Society La Siesta Bowls Club This is the third year this trophy has been played for, many thanks to Dave Rotchell for sponsoring the day. We played at one of the society’s favourite courses, Altorreal, although the day did not start very well regarding the weather...yes rain and a lot of it, we decided to make the trip to Murcia hoping it would have stopped by the time we arrived, well the good news is that it did stop and we ended up with near perfect weather conditions, the course was a bit wet in places having rained for two days prior but the new drainage system worked very well although we had to keep the buggies on the pathways. The format for the day was Texas scramble pairs, low handicap player partnered with a high handicap player scoring Stableford points, but the twist at the end was we drew three blind holes for

double points. Winners of the ”Dave Rotchell Trophy” were Martin Gadney “Watch My Handicap” and at last a winner, Ronnie King with 47 points, runners up were Ian Bell and Phil Ward “Minty” with 45 points. Nearest the pins were, hole 5 “The Wine Collector” Brian Court, holes 8 and 10 “Watch My Handicap” Martin Gadney and hole 17 Mo Chaplin. The football card was won by “The Wine Collector” Brian Court with West Ham Utd winning €20 and raising €20 for this year’s charity, Caritas Daya Nueva. Due to Imanyo’s being closed for holidays we relocated to Yo Yo restaurant for the presentation, thanks for the hospitality. Photo Shows Dave Rotchell presenting the trophy to winners Martin Gadney and Ronnie Kin . www.imanyogolfsociety.com imanyogolfsociety@gmail.com

A good start to the week with both the Apollos and the Pioneers having resounding home wins. The Apollos triumphed over Greenlands Sycamores by 144-62 gaining 10 points to their opponents 4 whilst the Pioneers completed 14 points to nil victory over El Rancho Broncos by 160 shots to 72. Highlight in both matches went to the players on Rink 5 with Dawn & John Taylor winning 38-3 for the Apollos and Janet Charman,Val Dalton and John Porter winning 40-7 for the Pioneers. For the Apollos their were also good wins for Irene Laverick, John Ball and Brian Harman 28-5, Trish Reilly,Ramsey Sinclair and Brian Fraser 26-7,Dave Davies,Pat Reilly and George Richardson 26-9 and also by our Friendly Team of Ann & Robert Heath with Jean Cooper winning 27-9. With everyone winning for the Pioneers there too many names to mention everyone but well done to our Captain John Lincoln with Wendy Ralph and Tom Heaslewood who won 26-11. Wednesday’s Winter League fixture with Greenland was washed out and will now be played on the 3rd December.

Real Madrid go six points clear

The weekend started with a home win for Eibar over Betis, which took the Basque club temporarily level on points with Atletico – pretty good for a club with a 5,000-capacity ground! Then it was the turn of Málaga to edge out Deportivo in a seven goal thriller at the Rosaleda, before Real Madrid took the field. Their visitors were Sporting de Gijón, and the teams came out to be greeted by a downpour, that was to continue unabated throughout the match. Cristiano Ronaldo struck straight away, a penalty, then a bullet-like header, but the Madrid side seemed to be in a dream, and allowed Sporting the luxury of a goal, and then a penalty, which Cop obligingly sliced over the bar. The rain was so heavy that the logos on the new ‘ecological’ shirts were completely washed away! Sevilla had a spot of bother in disposing of Valencia, also by two goals to one, a result which takes them to within six points of the leaders. Next up were Villareal, early ‘form team’ with a fine defensive record – but that counted for little, as their upstart visitors, Alavés, won 0-2 at the Madrigal. Atletico de Madrid regained their composure when they went to Pamplona to face Osasuna, and an easy 0-3 win

resulted. All eyes turned to Real Sociedad, where Barcelona were visitors to the Anoeta, not a happy hunting ground for them in the past. In the event, even Luis Enrique admitted that the Basques were the better side, but Willian José’s goal early in the second half was equalized by Messi, assisted by Neymar. (who had just modified the coachwork

on his 250,000 euro Ferrari – he likes to stay in the news) Referee Gil Manzano annulled a perfectly good goal by Juanmi for the home club soon afterwards. The result of all the above is that Real Madrid lead by six points from Barcelona, who are ahead of Sevilla on goal difference, with Atletico a further three points back in fourth. Real Sociedad are just a point behind in fifth. In the second division, not much changes, as leader Levante’s game was washed out after a

violent storm hit Valencia. Locals Elche scraped home 1-0 against Mallorca, to stay just outside the play-off places. In division 2B, group 1 is being led by Cultural Leonesa, who must visit the Bernabeu for the ‘dead’ leg of their Copa del Rey tie, whilst group 2 starts to look easy for Albacete, who won 0-6 in Toledo. In group 3, Alcoyano won the derby against Hercules 2-0, and are hot on the heels of leaders Barcelona B. Group 4 is starting to look like a battle between Marbella and Cartagena. In England, Chelsea took top spot when they beat neighbours Spurs 2-1, a point ahead of Liverpool, 20 winners over Sunderland, and Manchester City, for whom Kun Agüero was twice on target as they won 1-2 at Burnley. The best game, however, was at Swansea, where Fernando Llorente’s two injury-time strikes allowed them to beat Palace 5-4 in a pulsating match. Away from football, the news of the weekend was Argentina’s first ever Davis Cup victory, a win over Croatia, in which Del Potro played an inspired part. In cricket, England look to have an uphill struggle on their hands if they are to save the third test against India, despite some fine bowling by Stokes and Rashid.

The Blues had an 11points to 3 win against La Marina Dolphin scoring 111 shots to 88.However, the final points score was in doubt on 3 rinks until the final end.Dawn Taylor,Pat Reilly and Harold Charleton winning 20-16 whilst a single shot on the final end from Bill Jordan gave him a win with Beryl Styring and John Ball 14-13. Trish Reilly,Brian Gardiner and Brian Harman managed to get 3 shots on the final end to draw 16 apiece. The biggest winning rink was Sheila Chorley,Vic Mahomet and Irene Mangan with a 31-10 win.The other winning rink was Joy Gardiner,John Taylor and Jean Cooper winning 24-15. A close encounter between The Golds and Emerald Isle Outlaws finished in a draw 7 points apiece with the shots going to The Outlaws by 5 shots, 98-93.Winning Rinks for La Siesta were Hilary Clarke,Sheila Millward and Tony Dalton 23-16,Wendy & Alan Ralph with Val Dalton 20-13 and Janet & Fred Charman with Rab Logan 20-15. The most exciting match which finished 13-13 with Penny Porter, Gordon Dall and John Clarke snatching a draw with 2 shots on the final end for The Golds. Rod Edgerton

The Plaza Golf Society What a nice crisp early start we had at Villamartin. With the chance of winning the rollover for the 2s pot, not one player achieved it meaning there is a double rollover for our charity game at Villamartin on 9th December. Our nearest the pin was sponsored by Galaxy Golf, our nearest shop is Campoamor, near the La Feunte centre. Hole 6 was one by Darren Hancock, hole 9 by Kevin Rose, hole 13 by John “one” Eyre and Hole 17 by Mike Frankish, all collecting 12.50€ to spend in the Alehouse. Our last place was taken ( only just) by Bob rankin, with our captain Simon Lee having the worst game of his life and not even getting the bottle of wine to drown his sorrows and reflect on his game. Well done Bob. Best Lady was won by our newest member Liz Sully claiming the bottle of Wine to celebrate. Our third place was taken by Darren Hancock with his handicap of 6, coming in with an impressive 33 points, Kevin Rose scored a great score of 34 points with his handicap of 13 and Barry Lane came in with an fantastic score of 35 with his handicap of 10. The scratch card which was a 50€ Galaxy Golf Voucher was won by Richard McAllen Our next game is at Villamartin on 9th December, which extra tee times added we only have a few spaces left. So if you wish to play let us know, at The Alehouse, Theplazagolfsociety@gmail.com, or via Facebook page. Next games Friday 9th Villamartin, Friday 16th Las Ramblas.

Quesada Golf Society The last society game was at Alenda. The course was in good condition and the weather conditions perfect for a round of golf. Before the game one observation. That was the number of sprinklers around the 9th hole. They were being tested by one of the maintenance staff and it was remarkable how many there were. The water bill must be very high ! There was again a good turn-out of over 30 players. The format of the competition was an individual stableford split into Gold and Silver divisions. The scores on the day were however, on the low side with only 3 players scoring over 30 points. Quite a few players for some reason came in with 28 points. Please Big John be a bit more generous with the

handicaps. The winner of the Gold Division was Bob Jones with 30 hard earned points. In second place on C/B with 28 points was “Stormin” Norman Lewis or Jerry as he is known to his friends. In third place and a return to the podium with 28 points on C/B was Brent Hollings. If he hadn´t found the sand so much he could have been numero uno again. In the Silver division a battle raged between the oldest members of the Society, husband and wife young Trevor Hobbs and young Ann Hobbs. Young Trevor won on C/B with 31 points. In third place was Spurs fan David Trotman with 29 points after a very good back nine. There were only two “Nearest the Pins” winners from the six up for grabs, Eddie Scott

and Glenys “the Menace”Thomas. Nobody took home the 2´s pot which is carried forward to the next game. The winner of the scratch-card was new member John “ no I am not the England international” Stones. The players returned to the society base, the Quesada Country Club for the presentations and a tasty hot & cold buffet and a few drinks and some after-match banter. The next game is at Altorreal on Wednesday 30 November. Anyone in the Quesada area looking to join a very friendly golf society and play golf once a fortnight at a wide variety of courses at a very reasonable cost, should contact the Chairman & Membership Secretary Les Pancott.

Your week in sport ■ CHRIS DARWEN

EL RASO GOLF SOCIETY AT LA MARQUESA

Say what you like about Lewis Hamilton, he is only interested in winning. That would explain his somewhat grumpy demeanor having “won” the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix which meant he had “lost” the World

Championship. Hamilton did his bit, but unfortunately for him Rosberg also did his meaning no world title for Lewis. The race also saw the retirement of Jenson Button. Not just during the race, but after too. Button is calling it a day to focus on “other interests.” The Third Test in India was delicately poised at the close of play on Sunday. England battled back from a poor start having opted to bat first and had the hosts a mere 12 runs behind their first posting. Sadly for England, India still have four wickets remaining and only need a draw to remain in the overall lead for the series and it is still looking unlikely that Cook’s men will find a way to turn the match totally in their favour. So far, I am not reporting a whole load of British success in this week’s column. But step forward the English rugby team, coached by an Australian. Eddie Jones led the side to a convincing win over Argentina and now hopes to beat his nation of birth next week. Australia prepared for the showdown with a narrow defeat to Ireland, who suddenly look capable of beating some of the top sides in the world. Wales battered South Africa meaning it was a poor weekend for the southern hemisphere sides. Scotland? Well they beat, er, Georgia. Well done Scotland! Tiger Woods is now ranked number 879 in the world at golf, which is probably about the same as his table tennis ranking, so far has he dropped over recent years. The former Champion is back on the course though, taking part in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, which sounds like a very serious event. By the time you read this the BBC will have announced the shortlist for this year’s Sports Personality of the Year which will include the winner Andy Murray and a few others.

On Friday 25 November the El Raso GS played the monthly Stableford game on our home course, La Marquesa. There was a good turnout of 32 members, including our four new members, a warm welcome to Fred and Monique Reeve and Tony and Sue Forbes. Competition results were as follows: NTP’s: hole 5 Gordon Bourne hole 11 Denise Jenkins hole 15 Tony Forbes and hole 17 Debbie Weedon. Bev Fairhurst won the best front nine on c/b with 18 pts and best back nine went to John Fairhurst with 18 pts. There were excellent scores amongst the top scorers with three players all achieving 37 pts and a countback decided the order, which was third Phyllis Venables, second Malcolm Foskett and the winner Robin Richards. Presentations and refreshments were held at the Olde 9th in Quesada and our thanks to Grant for the welcome hot meal. Our next game at Las Colinas on 16 December is now fully subscribed.

LAS RAMBLAS GOLF SOCIETY We started the week with the ever popular Counter Game where the number of scores required on each hole is not known until reaching the next tee. In the event 45 scores were required and it seems that the cold and overcast conditions got to everybody as all the teams were within 5 pts of each other and the winners were 4 over par. The best of a bad bunch were Reg Akehurst, Maria Oldenziel, Mike Chapman and 'Albert' who were surprised to be told they had won scoring only 86 pts. With our Wednesday stableford game being a wash out due to heavy rain it was good to wake up to a clear blue sky for our game on Friday which was the return of an old favourite known as 'Yellow Ball'. The game which has been absent from our calendar for a couple of years requires each member of a 4 man team to takes turns in having the responsibility of playing the yellow ball which scores double points but if the ball is lost that player is unable to score double when their turn comes around again. The best two other scores on each hole are then added to the score made by the yellow ball. The winners with a score of 136 pts were the team of Geoff Biggerstaff, Rod Doel, Dave Pulling and Ken Robertson. In second place with 134 pts were Terry Field, Mike Chapman, Brian Staines and Reg Akehurst. Mike Chapman

Ron from

Almazora 2 - 2 CD Torrevieja Back from injury the powerful Hugo Salamanca led the Torry line in Amazora with panache and precision. When he rammed home Torry´s second goal from the penalty spot, it looked sure that he had won all the points, something only

being weak and his passes going badly astray. Torry were as good as ever going forward, the creative genius of Damian probing for weaknesses and Pastor using his lightning pace to unnerve the home

one side has managed in this Castellon stronghold all season thus far. When he limped off injured, Torry lost their ability to hold the ball up front and Almazora battered away for the eqauliser, which they got in the last ten minutes, courtesy of another penalty kick. Torry were without captain Lewis who was suspended, having picked up his fifth caution of the term last weekend. They also missed Dani Salazar, who was injured in training just the day before the match. Martin returned from injury to partner Calzado at the heart of the Torry defence with the brilliant Carrasco pushed forward into his more accustomed midfield role. Sadly this was his first under par performance for Torry, his challenges

defence. Booker was battling tenaciously in the middle of the park, determined to belie his youthful age and stamp his mark on the game. Despite a few self imposed scares when Martin and Carrasco elected to play football deep in their own territory instead of blasting the ball clear, Torry dominated the half and it was against the run of play on 34 minutes when Nico tapped home from close range after Buba spilled a rasping low drive from inside the box. Nico looked decidedly offside, but no flag was evident. Five minutes later Damian forced his way into the box with sheer persistence and hit a left foot daisy cutter into the right hand corner of the net for the Torry equaliser. Less than five minutes later

Pastor made a mazy run into the box where the only option was to fell him. Hugo had to wait for ages with the ball on the spot before the referee finished writing in his notebook, then slowly take up his position forty yards from his note taking and eventually blow his whistle for the kick to be taken. Hugo was not fazed. He waited for the permission, then fiercly smashed the ball into the net, uncaring if it went through keeper Alejandro en route. Torry deserved their half time lead and should have added to it in the second period. After good work down the left flank, the ball was centred for Pastor, who took in in a tight spot. He kept control as he evaded his markers and got it on his favoured right foot on the edge of the box. He must have then taken his eye off the ball to check the goal as he fired his shot well off target, when recent clinical finishing from the Oz bound striker suggested he would have normally buried it. Almazora had the crowd screaming at the referee for every Torry challenge, their main striker keen to fling himself to the ground whenever Martin got close to him. Referee Antonio Rodríguez Rodrigo did well to resist their urgings, until he relented in the 84th minute. Vicente was under pressure with his opponent trying to squeeze past him on the byeline. Vicente got a foot to the ball but the player went

down under the challenge and the spot kick was awarded. Buba guessed right and got agonisingly close to the low drive from Rober, but just failed to stop it. The final five minutes were mostly Almazora but it took a last minute fingertip save from Alejandro to ensure they kept a share of the spoils. Torry won a good point on a ground were few sides leave with anythng more, but it felt like a couple dropped, having led for so long. It is a 5pm kick off at the Nelson Mandela on Sunday when Torry face Recambios Colon in their penultimate home tie of 2016. This game should mark the debut of Ivan Pecha, who boasts Champions League experience with FC Bate Borisov who after beating Sofia, then Anderlect reached the group stage of that competition in 2008-09, where they were drawn with Real Madrid, Juventus and Zenit St. Petersburg. Torry are also close to signing a Colombian player with Budesliga experience as they show full commitment to marching up the league table. Jeff Scott

Tales from the Top Flight ■ CHRIS DARWEN chris@costablancapeople.com

When the answer is Victor Moses, you have to wonder why so many managers have considered him not to be their cup of tea. People hail Antonio Conte as a tactical genius for switching to the shape that had served him so well at Juventus and then Italy, but he must owe Moses a huge debt for making the system actually work. The last time Spurs won at Stamford Bridge Gary Lineker was scoring on Match of the Day and not presenting it and their unbeaten record in the lead came to an end. Eriksen scored the first goal against Chelsea since goodness knows when, and what a goal it was only to be completely outdone by Pedro, yet another player completely at mercy of the strings of his puppet master Conte. Chelsea lead the way, meaning the likes of Cesc, Batshuyai and co can expect another little run out for the U23’s in the week. Pochettino followed in the footsteps of Jose, not in getting beaten at the Bridge but in asking Conte and his coaching staff to calm down a little bit during the orchestrating of their victory. Sensitive souls these losing managers. Well, if Kloppo ever gets sacked at Liverpool he could get a job as the conductor of the Royal London Philharmonic Orchestra. King Klopp was in peak mode at Anfield as Liverpool struggled to manoeuvre the double decker bus parked by Moyes out of the way. It took a fine goal from Origi to mean Sunderland might have

to think about starting an attack, before a late penalty from Milner settled matters. Klopp’s biggest worry after the match was the state of Coutinho’s ankle, the injury possubly ruling the Brazilian out for anything from six days to six months according to reports.

Pep is having to learn on the job, that is for sure. The early Saturday kick off was a trip to Burnley and they found themselves one-nil down following the ultimate “keeper-puntsit-long-someone-thumps-home-the-re bound” type goal. Yet, if Burnley had taken just two of the ninety eight opportunities to clear their lines they wouldn’t have conceded two goals to Sergio Aguero from a combined distance of half a yard. In the game where you wouldn’t have backed either team’s big name striker to actually score, Champions Leicester fell behind to Negredo’s first goal in what felt like a decade. The Spaniard got a taste for it, scoring again in the second half. Yet Leicester

are champions and therefore get special privileges. The decision to penalise Callum Chambers for the first penalty was a shocker. I think Morgan had heard Chambers likes to swap shirts and was getting in early. Leicester’s skipper then managed to win the injury time penalty that got

Leicester a very undeserved point. There have been rumours that there is a problem between Ranieri and Mahrez. I would imagine the only problem is that Claudio would like Riyad to contribute a little bit more than taking penalties in the league and play more like the Champions League version of himself. I admit I forced myself to watch the highlights of Hull and West Brom. It didn’t take long. The surprise was not that WBA scored from a corner, it was that they conceded the equaliser from a set piece. Still, Albion are in the right half of the table as far as they are concerned. At the risk of sounding like a broken

record, I think Pardew is completely done Fer at Palace. Despite his claims that it’s not like them to concede from set-pieces it clearly is as Leroy Fer helped himself to a brace that meant Swansea led 3-1 with 20 minutes remaining. Job done you would have thought, but Swansea visibly did not know what to do in this rare position of winning comfortably and set about dismantling all their good work. 7 minutes remained and Pardew was dancing like a very drunk uncle at his niece’s party yet again as his side found themselves 4-3 up. Mr Smug looked like he was about to earn at least another week at Selhurst Park, and the players must have suddenly become aware of this possibility. Palace downed tools for the 7 minutes of injury time and allowed Bob Bradley the honour of becoming the first American to coach a winning side in the Premier League. I believe the only record left for BB now is to become the first American to be sacked having relegated a Premier League side. As for Pardew, well the FA haven’t officially appointed Southgate yet at the time of writing. Stoke, frankly, need all the help they can get at the moment so it was a good time for them to be facing a previously in form Heurelho Gomes in the Watford goal. As Spurs fans will testify, he can veer between being a fine goalkeeper and a bit of a patsy, and each week that goes by error free is a step nearer to the next howler. And a howler it was, Gomes attempting to save the ball with his back as it rebounded off the post. Arsenal are trying a new approach to winning the title. They’ve realised

winning some matches and remaining unbeaten in November might give them a chance of not being miles off the pace come the turn of the year. Xhaka and Sanchez dominated the match against Bournemouth who will have felt a little unlucky to leave London without a point. Arsenal sit in 4th, where else if you want to go for the lazy gag, five points off the leaders. I’ve had to leave this bit until near the end, just in case you’ve stopped reading and my reputation may stay intact. Jose Mourinho was treated unfairly at Old Trafford. Yes, I mean it. We all know that if Kloppo or Conte had kicked that water bottle it would have been filed under “great to see that passion from the manager” as, well you know, they are popular and all. Jose does it and he is sent to the stands. More worryingly for United, it was another home draw against a bang average side. Southampton had fewer issues dispatching a bang average side at home, Charlie Austin’s first minute tap in seeing off Everton. I know, I change my tune by the week. Will Mourinho’s injustice see me willing him to do better from now? I have no idea. I literally make this up as I go along.
