Red Cross encourage Brits to volunteer

Lucy 617 693 922 marketing@thecoastrider.com

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.

Anne 618 048 526 anne@thecoastrider.com

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 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”

SkyDiving for Charity By Keith Nicol The team at the Nook Bar in Las Filipinas have been involved in charity fundraising since they opened their doors. Owners Linsey Smart and Euenan Gordon are possibly best known for putting together a mad and crazy fundraising campaign for their Christmas Day swim at La Zenia Beach, with Just Brass playing away in the background (something that Linsay says she'll be doing again this year regardless) but for 2016 the fundraisers through they would do something a little different: skydiving. Like all the best ideas, the idea came over a cafe table, as Patrick and Dick met with the former directors of the Foreign Residents Office, Graham Knight and Jean Paul plus former Councillor for Foreigners in Torrevieja, Pedro Valero. Almost jokingly, because Jean Paul used to be a French Paratrooper, they joked that maybe they should all do a skydive to raise money for this year's main charity fundraising event. And so the gist of the idea was planted back in 2015, even before the Christmas Day swim. Patrick then went back to the UK on his family visit and when he returned he found that Dick had already booked everything and put the idea in motion and so the fund raising campaign started in earnest in January 2016. This year's charities to benefit will be the AECC, AFA Torrevieja and a small, local charity in Scotland, to raise funds for local boy Riley Murry who requires special treatment for his condition which at present is only available in the USA. So last Saturday at the unheard off hour (for most of them) at 6.30am, half a dozen cars headed off toward towards Madrid and just shy of two hours later and a few kilometres from Albacete, arrived at the Ontur Airdrome to get ready for action. Six volunteers, Ian Sweles, Lorraine WestBrook, Dick Conway, Stella Dyer, Davy Tweedie (all pictured along with owners Linsay and Euenan) and John Wing, who was MIA at the after skyfall party at The Nook, all kited up and took part in the tandem jump, or yumping, as I now seems to be called.

In teams of two volunteers at the time, they took to the air, and three trip later, all were safely back on he ground with huge smiles and lots of cheers from the 20 or so supporters who had made the trip. The Ontur aerodrome, is the most central in the district and a privileged skydiving point. Each yumper ascended to an altitude of 3,300 meters and then, once attached to a professional skydiver, jumped in freefall for 45-60 seconds. Once they reached an altitude of 1500 meters, the parachutes were deployed and they were piloted for about 10 minutes landing right on target beside the cheering supporters. The group started at 10.30am with the plane taking about 20 minutes to reach altitude before jumping from 3,500 metres. The next event will be a money counting night and all those sponsors that have not yet done so are asked to please drop in their donation to the bar, and anyone else who would like to donate, would be welcome to do so. For more details about the event and future events, please call them on 965 321 296 or email: ewang26@hotmail.com. Their next event will be at 10.00 on La Zenia Beach on Christmas Day, and we shall report on the amount raised and add a few more photos to the pages of the CoastRider about the event, in the coming weeks.

Alicante, Gibraltar, Dracula By Bob Yareham Have you ever wondered why Gibraltar is British? Those of us who live in Spain usually refer to the place in muted whispers and, when asked how we would like it if Saint Michael’s Mount were Spanish, invariably reply that worst things could happen. Britain obtained Gibraltar at the Treaty of Utrecht 1714, in exchange for accepting Felipe Borbon as King of Spain, thus beginning the dynasty of the present King. This all came about at the end of the War of Spanish Succession, largely fought along the Mediterranean coast, and especially in places like Denia and Alicante, where there were castles to defend. Even more surprising is the fact that Alicante’s castle has been used as Dracula’s home in a film released in 1970 and starring Christopher Lee, who, tired of playing Dracula, didn’t quite manage to say “never again” and took part in this German production with Herbert Lom and Klaus Kinski. Spanish director Jesus Franco, whose films tend to follow the Benny Hill tradition of seeing women as something attached to a large pair of breasts, took the crew to Alicante, where they used Santa Barbara Castle for the scene in which Count Dracula suffers a severe case of sun burn.

The scene at Santa Barbara occurs at the end of the film when our heroes throw some very light looking boulders down upon a group of gypsies transporting Dracula’s coffin and then set fire to him, which to be honest, he rather seems to enjoy. My favourite scene from this film, apart from the bat on a stick that we imagine is Dracula, is the one

where a room full of stuffed animals threaten to attack the heroes by moving three inches to left and right. Unfortunately they don't make films like this anymore. One of the most remarkable military deeds in the history of Santa Bárbara Castle happened during the War of Spanish Succession between followers of the Borbon Felipe of Anjou and the Habsburg Charles. On the 28th June 1705 the British fleet of 5 ships under the command of Sir George Byng and a group of marines under Sir John Jennings began the siege of Alicante. On July 31st 1706, the English battleships supporting Archduke Charles bombarded the city for eight days. On August 8th, Dutch and English allied troops launched the definitive attack which ended in the occupation of the square. Once the city was taken, the Neapolitan troops, Corbí’s militiamen and some people from Alicante, led by French Marshal of Irish origin, Mahony, sought refuge in Santa Bárbara Castle. On September 7th, Mahony surrendered to the English because of the intense artillery fire suffered by the Castle and the fact that there were only 235 soldiers left in it. Two years later, in the winter of 1708, the Borbon supporters, led by D’Asfelf, returned to Alicante with their troops and took the city on December 3rd. The Castle, however, remained in the hands of the English. It was then when the most spectacular

event in the conflict took place. D’Asfelf hatched a plan to retake the fortress by blowing it up. To carry out this plan, tunnels were dug to undermine it. This work was finished in February 1709 and on the 28th they were packed with explosives. D’Asfelf, after inviting Richard, the Castle's English Commanding Officer to surrender on several occasions – even inviting the English to come down and see that a mine had indeed been packed with 150,000 kg of gunpowder- ignited the mine on March 4th, destroying part of the Castle and killing Richard and some twenty soldiers. However, the English garrison didn’t abandon the fortress until April 19th, Alicante thus becoming the last place in Valencia to be freed from the occupation of troops supporting Archduke Charles. Despite his reticence to be typecast, Lee would continue to play Dracula, and continue to make many films in Spain, including all three of Richard Lester’s Musketeer trilogy, which featured Denia’s port.

Eight of Torrevieja's schools took to the stage this week to celebrate 'Kids Day'. The schools of Acequión, Cuba, Salvador Ruso, Romualdo Ballester, Nuestra Señora del Rosario, Ciudad del Mar, Alpe and La Purísima performed songs, dances and theatre skits, to remind us all of the articles that refer to the Declaration of the Rights of the Child that were approved on November 20, 1959 by the seventy-eight member states that then constituted the United Nations Organization. The articles recognise the child as "a human being capable of developing physically, mentally, socially, morally and spiritually with freedom and dignity."

A Collector's Dream Holiday Gift: Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles When it comes to gifting there is nothing more timeless than a book that expresses interest and showcases an affectionate attention to a person's passions. For all the Beatles fans and collectors out there, look no more, Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles is the visual book, created by Paul Skellett and Simon Weitzman, that dives into the details, backstage, culture of the 60's and anecdotes, that made the last publicity photoshoot done by the group before it split up, so glorious: Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles.

Tom Murray is an award-winning photographer whose work spans portraiture, theater, fashion, advertising, newspapers and magazines. He perfected his craft working for newspapers, becoming the head of photography for The Sunday Times Colour Magazine, London's first Sunday magazine. He then worked alongside master photographers Helmut Newton and Lord Snowdon. At twenty-five, he received a commission from the Royal Family, becoming the youngest person to receive this honour, and has since immortalized subjects such as Elizabeth Taylor, Angelica Huston, Dustin Hoffman, Armani and Ralph Lauren. Mr. Murray's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world and has appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers like GQ, Vogue, The New York Times, and The London Times. A three-time World Press Photo

award winner, Mr. Murray has received numerous international awards for his work on newspaper and magazine assignments, theatre and advertising commissions as well as specialist portrait commissions in Europe, Africa and the United States. His success has enabled him to donate his photographs to a number of causes close to his heart. He has been significantly involved with the Make a Wish Foundation, Project Angel Food and Friends in Need, Cancer Care, Help the Hospice, Help for Hero's among many, many others. Through his photographic donations, he has helped raise over 8 million dollars. Murray, left his house on July 28th 1968 not knowing he would step into the most memorable photoshoot of his early career. Waiting for him were John, Paul, George & Ringo, of The Beatles, along with hurdles of screaming fans that pushed the group to move constantly from location to location and unknowingly inspiring the name of the famous collection of 23 photographs. The book draws from the legendary impact that the band had-and continues to have- on society. Through Tom Murray's photographs, memories and tales the

book tells a visual story of how the Beatles weren't only a music sensation but a phenomenon that influenced generations. Tom Murray's Mad Day Out By retracing the locations that made the backdrop of the Mad Day photoshoot: The Docklands, Old Street Station (where Paul McCartney nearly fell off the roof ), Regents Park, Paul McCartney's house in St. John's Wood, St. Pancras Church Garden and Wapping Pier Head – the book depicts the playful and unexpected characters of each member of the band and makes the reader dive into the energy of those years.

Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles is presented in a slipcase and consists of 120 pages, with every copy of the edition personally signed and numbered by Tom along with an original limited edition Mad Day poster. The book can be ordered online for $100.00 through Archivum's publishing website, limited availability: http://archivumuk.businesscatalyst.com/#tommur ray

Salt: From Torrevieja To The World By Fiona Crate Francisco de Quevedo, a famous writer of the Spanish Golden Age (1600's) wrote: “It is not wise to be he who finds a treasure, but to be the one who works to untie it”. The truth is that there are many treasures that surround us, that we do not notice nor unearth. I hope that in today’s article I can shed some light to to help you discover some of them.

As promised in my previous article on the Khmer Empire of Angkor in Cambodia (Edition 604), there are a number of similarities of that civilization and the area where you are living now. And it is that both civilisations knew how to take advantage of the water; that powerful element that gives everything and everything snatches it, making it the engine of its development. Mother Nature drew two bubbles of salt water along our coast: surely you have seen them while passing along the N-332 from Alicante to Cartagena. Your attention is drawn to the powerful colours of roses, purples and greens that changes colours at will. A chromatic

amalgam whose culprits are a very peculiar bacteria that inhabit extreme environments like these. It is the Laguna de Torrevieja (sapphire colour) and the Laguna de La Mata (emerald colour), with such richness and diversity that they have been declared a protected National Park. The first one has an area of 1,400 hectares and the second is 700 hectares. Their existence is crucial for the development of the biological cycles of many species, especially birds such as flamingos, osprey (águila pescadora) or black-eared zampullin (zampullín cuellinegro), as they live together along with other nearby lagoons, forming a triangle of internationally significant wetlands. The high salinity of its waters proved to be its greatest ally as centuries ago these were turned into a coveted source of wealth for the region. The quality and salt production of these two lagoons was such that it was said that they could supply all of Europe, back in the eighteenth century, a time when salt, as well as a natural preservative, was used as the currency of exchange in Economic transactions. This National Park is a real gem to explore. So close to us but at the same time so unknown that I leave the path along the lagoons’ as a treasure so you can discover this for yourself. There is, on one side, a yellow footpath that allows you to contemplate, from the high wooden Observatory, a wide panorama of the whole park, fauna and flora, typical plant formations and birds,;the true protagonists in any wet zone. If you prefer, there is

a bicycle route; the red route; a journey of more than five kilometres that allows you to discover the best views of the Park. We also have the wine route; a pleasant walk among the vineyards of the park, featuring five stops; a small recreational area and panels explaining the history, biodiversity, the particularities of the crop and the artisan process of obtaining the famous "Wine of La Mata ". For more information and to organize your visit you can go to the Centro de Interpretación interpretation centre- of the Natural Park or their website: www.parquesnaturales.gva.es/web/pnlagunas-de-la-mata-torrevieja. Currently this centre is offering an exhibition of photos to commemorate the 20th anniversary since it was declared a Protected Natural Park in 1996. Throughout the months of November and December, a series of activities, lectures, guided tours and exhibitions have been scheduled, all of which focuses on you, the visitor, so you can enjoy the natural and cultural values of this Natural Park and to promote its conservation and protection.

The shortest international flight lasts 8 minutes This week, People's Viennaline will launch service between St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport in Switzerland and Friedrichshafen in Germany, CNN reported. The flight is the shortest scheduled international flight in the world— covering just 13 miles in distance and lasting a brief eight minutes. The 8-minute flight beat the previous record held by a 10-minute flight between Vienna and Bratislava (Slovakia) according to Travel and Leisure. Now, the shortest commercial flight in the world takes place between the towns of St. GallenAltenrhein (Switzerland) and Friedrichshafen

(Germany) on a distance of 20 km. The flight is operated twice a day in both directions and cost 40 euro for a single trip. The flight between the two destinations takes place over Lake Constance and is a good option for both tourists and workers who commute on both sides of the lake. Other transport options between the two cities are traveling by car for an hour and two-hour journey by train.

The flight wasn’t inaugurated without a bit of controversy due to the amount of fuel the Embraer 170 jets burn for the brief flight – as well as the noise they generate during take-off and landing. People's

Viennaline CEO Danel Steffen told CNN that only 4,000 or so passengers a year are expected to take the short flight, but he expects it will be a benefit to both tourists and those who work across the lake. In addition, Steffen expects the flight to be a popular activity for aviation buffs around the world. The Vienna, Austria-based airline currently operates a single Embraer E170 regional airliner with 76 seats and is expected to take delivery of a second aircraft next summer.

A giant telescope to be An old military nuclear built in the Canary Islands plant opened for tourists By Anda Robescu A non-profit organization that wants to place a giant telescope on a mountaintop in Hawaii has chosen the Canary Islands as alternate location if the device can not be built on the mountain that many Hawaii residents believe to be holy. A mountain in the Canary Islands, Spain, is the primary alternative to Hawaii, Thirty Meter Telescope officials announced in a press release. The TMT International Observatory Board of Governors met last week to discuss the project's progress in Hawaii and identified Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos on La Palma island "after careful deliberation," board chair Henry Yang said in a statement. Hawaii's Mauna Kea is still the preferred location, Yang said, adding that telescope officials will forge ahead in efforts to obtain a permit to build it on conservation land. The Mauna Kea Mountain was the first choice due to

the fact that its top is at 4,200 meters high; the visibility is good almost 300 days a year. The second location in Palma is only at a height of 2396 meters. The project is stalled in Hawaii amid intense protests by Native Hawaiians and others who cite the sacredness of the land and other issues for their opposition. The state Supreme Court last year invalidated the project's permit, ruling that the state land board's approval process was flawed. The ruling sent the matter back for a new contested-case hearing. "I'm glad they're looking at alternative sites," Kealoha Pisciotta, one of the leaders challenging the telescope, said during a break in the hearings. "I have to say if they do go with the alternative site, I hope they don't do there what they're doing to Native Hawaiians and the people of Hawaii."

By Anda Robescu An old military nuclear facility which has never been used has been redesigned to be visited by tourists, writes UPI.com. Hailed as the largest man-made cave in the world, the 816 Nuclear Military Plant, located in the mountains of Fuling district in China's Chongqing municipality, was designed to manufacture plutonium in the 1960s - a 17-year project involving more than 60,000 soldiers. Yang Yan, an administrator at the site, told China Daily: 'So far, no foreigners have visited the plant. A tour takes three hours, and visitors must follow the guide, otherwise they will get lost in this maze-like cave. This base has never been put into operation or stored any nuclear material,' Mr Yang said. 'There is no need to worry about radiation. It is safe to enter.'

After its declassification in 2002, the facility now includes a modern lighting and sound system, a science centre dedicated to the nuclear field and other exhibition spaces dedicated to the history of China. The plant spans 9662 square meters in 18 wells dug into the rock and 130 tunnels. It was designed to tolerate thousands of tons of TNT explosives, and at least 100 workers were reported to have died during construction. A complete tour takes three hours and visitors must follow closely the guide in order to not be lost on the dark sites of the plant. A small part of the nuclear plant was opened in 2010 during China's national holidays, but now only a third of it is open to the public. Construction of the base began in 1966, over 60,000 soldiers being involved in this process and at least 100 have died during the works, concludes UPI.com.

Business in Orihuela Costa

By Raymond Kearney

My wife Evelyn and I started our own real estate business in January 1999. Prior to starting our own company I worked with a Spanish estate agency that was totally oblivious to the concept of customer care or after-sales service. From my managerial background working with “Superquinn” in Ireland, it was quite easy to give Irish and British people the service they deserved and expected. This customer centred and personal approach along with good product knowledge was all that was needed to achieve a very successful business in a relatively short time. Many customers wanted to start a business in Orihuela Costa in order to be able to spend more time here, I don’t know how many times I heard “I’d need something to do, I could not just sit around doing nothing”. So I branched out into commercial or business property. From 20012005 many entrepreneurs invested in commercial properties, some to start their own businesses, others as a rental investment. Unfortunately when the crisis hit, the first to be hurt were those who were involved in commercial properties; myself included.

Renters went out of business and owners couldn’t pay mortgages, and the same banks that were responsible the crisis in the first place were totally ruthless with those who owed them money. The business community suffered more than any other group from the crisis. Right now, on the coast we have the lowest restaurant prices in Europe. The bar prices too are very competitive. Food prices in the local supermarkets are way less than in any northern European country. Unfortunately, small enterprises are still failing, businesses are struggling. What is needed to make the situation better? We need more winter tourism. Airlines need to provide a better winter schedule. The town hall needs to provide and promote more and better winter attractions and events like the “St. Patrick’s Day Parade” in Cabo Roig. Orihuela needs to become a popular winter destination for tourists.

Information about upcoming events from the Town Hall is very limited and only a few people are well informed. Events should be planned up to a year in advance and circulated through internet mailing, circulars, free newspaper and radio releases and a good town hall sponsored “What´s on Website” promoting all things tourism related. Home owners could help by using their homes more in the off-season or to offer the use of their homes to friends and close relatives. While you are here on holidays, eat out more, the quality and value of eating out here is superb. If you get an excellent meal or a great night out, tell others about it, face to face or on Facebook or TripAvisor. The town hall could open one or more parking locations for camper`vans in Orihuela Costa. The campervan owners would be happy to pay a reasonable nightly fee for safe parking with minimal services. Our “Snowbirds” travel long distances to avail of our beautiful weather and they are prepared to use the restaurants and other businesses on the coast. The town hall could also help by insisting that the La Zenia toll removed as soon as possible. Let’s be honest: Orihuela Costa is a piece of Heaven on Earth. Let us enjoy it, let’s tell others about it, and invite our friends and family over to stay with us or in a place close by. Let’s make a habit of attending events and activities and supporting local restaurants, bars and businesses. The more tourists we have all year around, the more desirable this area is to investors. Our property prices will increase, businesses will flourish, services will improve and we will all win.

The Supremes: Baby Love

On November 19th 1964, The Supremes became the first all girl group to have a UK No.1 single when 'Baby Love' went to the top of the charts. Written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland, it was also the second of five Supremes songs in a row to go to No.1 in the United States.

The Motown songwriting team of HollandDozier-Holland wrote this innocent song about teenage love. They wrote 14 US Top-10 hits for The Supremes. This was The Supremes' first and only song to reach #1 in the UK. The Supremes were the first girlgroup to have a Number One hit in Britain. It turned out to be The Supremes' only UK Chart Topper, though they had many more in the US. In August of 1974, this song was reissued in Britain, where it reached Number 12. This was also featured in the 1997 film Jackie Brown. Explaining how the trio wrote to NME in 1984, Lamont Dozier said: "I would collaborate with Eddie on lyrics and with Brian on melodies. Then Brian and I would go into the studio and produce the actual record although Eddie should have been put down as one of the producers because he helped teach the artists the tune when the lyric

was finished."

A musician named Lorenzo Pack filed a lawsuit against Motown in 1966, claiming the Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team based "Baby Love" on his 1962 song "I'm Afraid." Pack had little evidence to support his assertion, and Motown won the lawsuit. The testimony, however, revealed some insights on this song, as Brian Holland told the court: "When we write a song, we try to express real feelings about a real situation. In writing the song for The Supremes it was obvious that we were writing for pretty young girls, of whom one is the so-called lead singer. Therefore, in writing 'Baby Love,' we pictured a simple story about a girl whose boyfriend has left her and who loves him very dearly and who would like the boy to come back. The music fits this simple story." According to Rolling Stone magazine, when this song was finished, Berry Gordy thought it wasn't catchy enough and sent the group back into the studio, which is when they came up with the "Oooooh" at the beginning. This song, "Where Did Our Love Go" and "Come See About Me" were written by Holland-DozierHolland in one session and were all recorded

within two weeks. Berry Gordy required the songwriters to punch a clock when they came in and left for work at Motown, which is something he learned working for Ford. The H-D-H team was especially proficient, often completing 2 or 3 songs a day. In the studio on that day: Lead vocals by Diana Ross: Background and ad-lib vocals by Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson: All instruments by the Funk Brothers and Footstomps by Mike Valvano. This song received a Grammy nomination for Best Rhythm & Blues Recording in 1965; it lost to Nancy Wilson's "How Glad I Am." This was the second US Number One hit for The Supremes, following "Where Did Our Love Go." They were the first Motown act with two Number One hits in the USA. Considered one of the most popular songs of the late 20th century, "Baby Love" was ranked 324 on the Rolling Stone list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Backstage Interview with I'm Mister X Who are you and what do you do? I'm Mister X - a professional magician, who does general magic, illusion manipulations and illusion with large equipment. How did you start in the business? I started as a circus variety artist in variety shows venues around Bulgaria, since I graduated at the Unique Circus School in Moscow, Russia. What would you be doing if you were not an entertainer? For me the stage is everything and I love to perform on it! I love my job as a magician! Anyway, I'm also a civil engineer, so I do have an alternative job. As an entertainer who has been your biggest influence? I was mostly influenced by the son of the legendary Bulgarian magician Miti, called Julian. I got attracted by his tricks and illusions and that determined my future life.

practised it many times and it has been refined in order to make sure that everything would run smooth. What was your best moment? For me, the best time is after every applause of the audience. This is the criteria for each artist. What has been your worst moment? At the first Balkan Festival of Magicians I had to open the festival. When I got announced, I appeared on stage and the wrong music was playing which threw me for a moment, I looked at the show director and I nodded to the audience, and invited my assistant on stage. My correct music started with my performance. The audience didn’t notice that. Later on I’ve found that the director had had informed the sound master about the problem which was solved within seconds.

Do you ever get nervous or have you suffered stage fright? When I started, I was concerned about my first appearances on stage about how the audience would react, and worried that if someone in the audience is illusionist with more experience than me and what would he say. But with the time I was seeing the audience's reaction and become more confident. I love the stage and the audience and have no worries now whatsoever. Even when I run a new magic trick I'm not worried as I know I have

What’s the best piece of advice you have received or would give someone starting out in the business? I've received a lot of advice from colleagues and show directors. I'd share them with younger colleagues – the magic tricks have to be performed in front of an audience only after one is 100% sure and confident that the performance would run smooth. The hands have to do the magic trick instinctively, otherwise the audience would notice that the magician is not prepared. Any little anecdotes or interesting stories? A. I was working in a variety complex with a live orchestra, playing with real cigarettes and throwing them on the floor. One cigarette’s spark fell on the magical towels on my table, so they got on fire. When I turned around I saw the guitarist trying to extinguish the burning towels stamping them with his feet. Mister X is available for table magic, magic and illusion shows as well as grand scale illusions. Take a look at his web page on ArtistsDirect – Spain.com and phone to book him direct.

After Hours at Lo Crispin Tavern Tell us about yourselves My name is David and I am Spanish, born and bred in this area, from Rojales. I run the Lo Crispin Tavern in Urbanization Lo Crispin near Ciudad Quesada. I am the sole owner of the bar/restaurant but fortunately also have some very good staff. I have been here since December 2008. What made you open a bar? I had a successful plastering business for a while but a few years ago I was struggling with the recession and decided I needed a different direction. A friend of mine ran a local bar/restaurant and I liked the atmosphere there and the way that many customers had become their friends. I made up my mind that this was what I wanted to do and, despite knowing that it would involve a great deal of hard work and that it would become more a way of life than a job, I decided to go for it. Where did the inspiration for the name come from? I have always liked the British people and their attitude to life so I decided that I wanted to open an English-style pub and ‘tavern’ is a good old-fashioned English word. We are situated on the Lo Crispin

Urbanization so we became the Lo Crispin Tavern. Who does the cooking? And how would you describe your style? My main chef Julia is from Russia. She has been in Spain 15 years and worked in a number of restaurants. We do a combination of traditional British and Spanish dishes. Our British customers like having the option of familiar English fayre and that of their adopted country. For good measure Julia sometimes does something Russian-style as several people have requested this. What’s your favourite dish on the menu? Chicken breast with mushroom

sauce. Don’t ask me why, I just love it! Maybe it’s the way Julia cooks it. Favourite day of the week? I think Sundays as there is so much going on. We have a carvery and later a quiz and sometimes karaoke too. We also show all the popular sports on TV and there is always something on a Sunday. Any interesting tales? The Tavern also serves as the community centre for the urbanization. This year, apart from having a Russian chef, we have had a Russian birthday party and a Russian wedding. For the birthday they asked if they could bring a live pony for the children to play with. After obtaining

the necessary licences and clearances I agreed. A good time was had by all, including the pony. The wedding party all went outside for a traditional Russian toast which involved smashing all the glasses against the wall at the end (fortunately they brought their own). A tradition I did not know about is that both bride and groom take a bite out of a loaf of bread and the one that takes the largest bite will be head of the family. If I remember rightly the bride won! Find out what Lo Crispin Tavern have going on each day of the week at whatson-costablanca.com and book a table by phoning 646 777 658. They open from 11am each day apart from Thursdays in the winters October – April.

Every Kid Should Have One

It hasn't won a TOTY (TOY OF THE YEAR) award and you won't find it on the Parent Magazine Holiday Gift Guide, but every kid who gets one will be entertained for hours—no matter what he's into. Have a budding engineer on your gift list who likes to put things together and take them apart? Wacky Links™ lets Chase do just that. Raising a fashionista in training? With Wacky Links™, Emma can have a fashion show with all her own jewellery designs! Got a shy kid who needs a way to socialize? Wacky Links™ can help Allison make friends when she shares her tubes and charms with others. The idea is simple, says Wacky Links™ CEO, Vanessa NornbergBarey: "Wacky Links™ are soft colourful tubes, like straws, that children can connect with pronged shapes such as stars, animals, music notes and more to make bracelets, backpack decorations, shoe jewellery, and anything else they can think of! Wacky Links™ aren't just fun, they're 'fun-

damental'. They encourage sensory experience, hand-eye coordination, fine motor-skills, and imagination. And since they can be used over and over again, their $9.99 cost is less than the cost of gas for Santa's sled." Dinosaur Fun with Wacky Links! So why aren't Wacky Links™ on this year's toy lists? Because the moms and dads behind the open-ended kits were so busy creating more themes to meet fastpaced demand for the series, and, well…being moms and dads, that they did not even have the time to submit Wacky Links™ to any of the review boards. Nornberg-Barey is fine with flying under the radar: "Parents that choose Wacky Links™ are essentially choosing to give their children the possibility to imagine, rather than gifting them

Personalised Kids Book Augmented Reality Brings New Personalised Kids Book to Life, Right in Front of the Reader's Eyes. Mass customisation kids brand

Tinyme has just launched a fully personalised, augmented reality kids book, The Amazing Alphabet.

It's beautiful, it's educational, it's professionally printed, (and it's just pretty dang cool). Tinyme is a design, software

with a specific experience. We won the Creative Product of the Year from Creative Child Magazine right after we launched earlier this year, and honestly, that speaks volumes for us. It's given out by parents and educators and these are the voices that matter most when it comes to understanding the power of play!" And play kids will—thanks to the super selection of Wacky Links™ themes now available: original, princess, dinosaur, ocean adventure, safari, rock&roll, connector, and winter wonderland. Each theme includes different coloured tubes and connectors allowing kids to build, wear, and share them. Wacky Links is wholly committed to the importance of play. Our award-winning Wacky Links™DIY kit is made of soft colorful tubes that connect to iconic charms. Boys and girls love to use their imagination and Wacky Links™ to create bracelets, necklaces, backpack charms and more! Ultra-light, parents can bring Wacky Links™ to restaurants, doctor appointments, or vacation getaways for hours of entertainment. Wacky Links™ can be used, taken apart and put back together or exchanged for hours of creative play. Wacky Links™ make everyone want to build, wear, share. Wacky Links™ are available at play-conscious toy stores across the country, and on Amazon.com. Go to http://www.wackylinks.com for more information.

development and manufacturing studio solely focussed on mass customisation. It's truly a cottage industry as Tinyme is run by 3 dads (who have 15 kids between them). Tinyme has grown purely organically from 1 person startup to 50+ team with separate business in Australia, US and UK. Tinyme.com. The Amazing Alphabet is a beautiful, keepsake book that's uniquely personalised and custom printed for each child, however, it also contains hidden educational super powers. By hovering over the book with the free accompanying app the characters jump out of the page in 3D with music and sound effects and get up to all sorts of fun stuff. The app can read the story to the child and allow them to engage with the printed page in a truly amazing way. "As a Dad of 6, I've spent 100's & 100's of

hours reading books to my kids, encouraging them to have a deep love for reading. I've also spent quite a bit of time playing around with a bunch of pretty cool kids apps. As someone who founded a studio which writes, illustrates, develops software and even physically prints personalised books for kids, I'm really excited by what our team at Tinyme has now created," said Mike Wilson, Tinyme founder. In the story of The Amazing Alphabet your child sets off on an adventure to help Little z find his perfect friend. Along the way they meet all the colourful characters of the alphabet and make a whole bunch of new friends. While it's an educational book and lots and lots of fun, it's essentially a story about friendship. "We've always loved how kids get so excited about having a book written and illustrated specially just for them, but a personalised book just for them that pops to life with music and animation that you can engage with, now that's really, really special," added Wilson.

If you’re in the UK and concerned about a British national in the communities of Valencia and Murcia or the province of Albacete, call 020 7008 1500.

Call them before making an appointment if you’ve never applied for a British passport before or if you’re applying for a child under the age of 16. If you are travelling in the next week and your passport is not available, you may be able to apply for an ETD. You can go to your nearest consulate and normally obtain an ETD on the day. You must bring your travel details for all applications plus proof of your address in Spain if the ETD is for a round trip.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

From 1964 thru 1968, NBC's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. TV series was a must watch for fans of Spy fiction with a touch of tongue in cheek comedy thrown in. The original idea for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. came from Norman Felton, the executive producer of the series. The outline of the original television series, one of the most successful during the Sixties and initially called 'Solo', was drafted by Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, who was brought in as a paid consultant as it was intended to be a spoof on Bond, which was itself a spoof on the world of international espionage. Fleming, who invented the names Napoleon Solo and April Dancer, was unable to finish the work and it was taken over by the series producers Norman Felton and Sam Rolfe, Felton being responsible for the introduction of the Illya Kuryakin character and Rolfe for the name of the organisation. The name U.N.C.L.E., like its evil, global domination-obsessed adversary, THRUSH, did not originally stand for anything in particular but fan interest was so intense and persistent that the acronyms 'United Network Command for Law and Enforcement' and 'Technical Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity' were subsequently created. Based in a hidden H.Q. in New York City, U.N.C.L.E. is located a block from the East River at East 46th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, near the United Nations complex. Top U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) usually gained entry to the secret complex through a camouflaged entrance in a changing cubicle at the rear of Del Floria's cleaning outlet, the scene featuring in the opening sequence of all the TV episodes. Four other entrances were known to exist: a hinged wall in the shower area of a public garage, an underground tunnel from the river, a nightclub called The Mask Club and an entrance used by high-level personnel that was shown in the "The Mad, Mad Tea Party Affair". There was a 'Moneypenny-like' receptionist handing out security badges, whom Solo used to flirt shamelessly with, and another similarity to the James Bond productions was the featuring of high-

tech futuristic weapons and gadgetry which included a car with gull-wing doors, the U.N.C.L.E. guns (which were Walther P38s with many special attachments such as silencers and long range sights), the sophisticated security badges and, of course, the fountain pen communicator with its extending aerial and distinctive transmission sound. "Open channel D . . . ."

The series had a distinctly British flavour, both David McCallum and Leo Carroll being of that extraction. Leo was a successful West End stage actor before moving to Hollywood in 1934 and appeared in six Alfred Hitchcock films. Stunts were usually performed by David McCallum and Robert Vaughn, as well as by stuntmen, and the best-looking version was used. David McCallum wasn't great with heights and Robert Vaughn wasn't too keen on water so they tended to avoid those types of stunts. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. television series was an American production produced by Arena Productions using the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio facilities and was originally transmitted on NBC in the U.S. from 22nd September 1964 until 15th January 1968 and screened by BBC1 in the U.K. about a year later. It consisted of a total of 105, 50 minute episodes each titled ' The . . . . . Affair', such as 'The Dippy Blonde Affair' and 'The Bow Wow Affair' and each show being subdivided into several 'acts'. Every episode's screen credits included a dedication to the men and women of U.N.C.L.E. 'without whose assistance this programme would not be possible', although U.N.C.L.E. does not exist, and never has. Every two-part story was reedited into a cinema film. These were initially released in Europe, being shown later on American TV. Additional footage was shot to make up the length and make it more 'cinematic' including scenes containing additional violence or innuendo not acceptable to television. Conversely, the TV versions include some scenes

not used in the films. A reunion telefilm, Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E. subtitled The Fifteen Years Later Affair, was broadcast on CBS in America on April 5, 1983, with Vaughn and McCallum reprising their roles, and Patrick Macnee replacing Leo G. Carroll, who had died in 1972, as the head of U.N.C.L.E. A framed picture of Carroll appeared on his desk. The movie included a tribute to Ian Fleming via a cameo appearance by an unidentified secret agent with the initials "J.B." The part was played by George Lazenby who was shown driving James Bond's trademark vehicle, an Aston Martin DB5. One character, identifying him, says that it is "just like On Her Majesty's Secret Service", which was Lazenby's only Bond film. The series was popular enough to generate a spin-off series, The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. The "girl" was first introduced during "The Moonglow Affair" (February 25, 1966) an episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and was then played by Mary Ann Mobley. The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. spin-off series ran for one season, starring Stefanie Powers as agent "April Dancer", a character name credited to Ian Fleming, and Noel Harrison as agent Mark Slate. There was some crossover between the two shows, and Leo G. Carroll played Mr. Waverly in both programs, becoming the second actor in American television to star as the same character in two separate series. Barbara Feldon played an U.N.C.L.E. translator eager for field work in "The Never-Never Affair," one year before becoming one of the stars of the very different spy series Get Smart. Robert Culp played the villain in 1964's "The Shark Affair." Leigh Chapman appeared in a recurring role as Napoleon Solo's secretary, Sarah, for several episodes in 1965. Among the many famous 'guest artists' to appear in the show were Vincent Price, Vera Miles, Sonny and Cher, Joan Collins, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy (they appeared together in one episode before being cast together as the main characters in 'Star Trek' a couple of years later), Kurt Russell, Joan Crawford, Jack Palance, Janet Leigh, Richard Anderson, Joan Blondell, Roger C. Carmel, Elsa Lanchester; Yvonne Craig, Kim Darby, Ivan Dixon, Anne Francis, Richard Kiel, Angela Lansbury, Julie London, Leslie Nielsen, William Marshall, Eve McVeagh, Carroll O'Connor, Eleanor Parker, Slim Pickens, Dorothy Provine, Cesar Romero, Nancy Sinatra, Terry-Thomas, Fritz Weaver and Elen Willard in her last acting role.

Robert Vaughn, ‘Magnificent Seven,‘ ‘Man From UNCLE’ Star, Dies at 83 by Keith Nicol The original “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” has died. Robert Vaughn, who played secret agent Napoleon Solo on the 1960s spy comedy series, passed away at the age of 83, on November 11, just 11 days shy of his 84th birthday, which would have been on Tuesday. Vaughn died from complications from acute leukaemia. After appearing as an uncredited extra in “The Ten Commandments” in 1956, Vaughn landed his first breakthrough role in “The Young Philadelphians” in 1959, for which he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. He next appeared as gunman Lee in The Magnificent Seven (1960), a role he essentially reprised 20 years later in Battle Beyond the Stars (1980), both films adapted from filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's 1954 Japanese samurai epic, Seven Samurai. Vaughn was the last surviving member of those who portrayed The Magnificent Seven. Early in the 'new millennium' I had the pleasure of cruising with Robert Vaughn, who sadly passed away last week. The ship was the Marco Polo as she sailed from East Coast USA to Bermuda. He was onboard as an enrichment lecturer along with 'Singing In The Rain' star, Debbie Reynolds. The quiet and unassuming actor was a pleasure to chat to and he had great fun presenting his lectures about his film and TV work over the decades. He noted that he had starred in more than 150 films, many of which have been completely forgotten both by audiences and, as he once candidly admitted, by Vaughn himself. Of John Sturges western; The Magnificent Seven, where he played dapper, black-clad gunfighter, Lee, in the, The Magnificent Seven, he said that although it's now seen as a cinema classic, the film had a chaotic start which was not helped by a

writers strike in Hollywood. Vaughn described how he arrived to discover that there was no script and that Sturges had only cast two of the characters, those played by Steve McQueen and Yul Brynner. "So when Sturges met me, he actually asked if I knew any other good actors. I called my best friend James Coburn, who was hanging out with a chick, smoking dope in Greenwich Village, and told him: 'Get out here fast!' He had no money, and had to borrow some from his parents. But he made it." After seeng the runaway success generated by the first three James Bond films, Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963) and Goldfinger (1964), in 1964, Vaughn was offered his own TV series, originally titled “Solo,” in which he would play the suave secret agent Napoleon Solo. The show became “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and Vaughn was partnered with David McCallum, who played his fellow agent and partner, Illya Kuryakin. “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” was such a success it launched spinoff series, a line of merchandise, feature films and was recently remade as a big screen feature with Henry Cavill in the Napoleon Solo role and Armie Hammer as Kuryakin.

From 1964 to 1968, Vaughn played Solo, eventually leading to a sequel The Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E. - The Fifteen-Year-Later Affair. He added; "Not only was it a great deal of fun, it changed me from being a working actor to a negotiating actor. After U.N.C.L.E., I never accepted the first offer: if I wanted more money, I asked for it." In the year the series ended, Vaughn landed a large role playing Chalmers, an ambitious California politician in the film Bullitt starring Steve McQueen, another of the young guns in The Magnificent Seven. He starred in two seasons of the British detective series The Protectors in 1972 and 1973, which ran to 52 episodes over two series, each 25 minutes long - making it one of the last series of this type to be produced in a half-hour format. Vaughn stared with Nyree Dawn Porter (co-star of The Forsyte Saga) as the Contessa Caroline di Contini, and Tony Anholt (later to star in Space: 1999 and Howards' Way) as Paul Buchet. Vaughn appeared in two episodes of Columbo during the mid-1970s. He won an Emmy for his portrayal of Frank Flaherty in Washington: Behind Closed Doors (ABC, 1977) and during the 1980s starred with friend George Peppard in the final season of The A-Team. In 2004, after a string of guest roles on series such as Law & Order, in which he had a recurring

role during season eight, Vaughn experienced a resurgence. He began co-starring in the British TV drama series Hustle (2004-12), made for BBC One. He said: "Hustle is wonderfully enjoyable, because all my life I've made an effort to be with people who can make me laugh. That original cast - Marc Warren, Jaime Murray, Robert Glenister and Adrian Lester - are all funny. So I know every day I'll have a few good laughs." In 2006, he guest-starred in two episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit with his other recent film work including Excuse Me for Living (2012), The Magnificent Eleven (2012), A Cry from Within (2014) and this year The American Side (2016) and Gold Star. Vaughn even reached a brand new generation of viewers on 27th January 2012 when he took on the role of Milton Fanshaw in Coronation Street as a new love interest for Sylvia Goodwin (Stephanie Cole). Of Vaughn's casting, Coronation Street producer Phil Collinson commented: "I am delighted to be welcoming The Man from U.N.C.L.E. to Coronation Street. Robert was a huge part of my childhood and a magnificent actor. I am looking forward to seeing the impact this exotic character has on the ladies of Weatherfield." For the BBC they said: Vaughn's acting career never reached the heights achieved by some of his contemporaries, possibly because he devoted time to his political activities. Off screen, Vaughn was a committed political activist who had joined the Democrats in the early 1950s while at college in Minnesota.Firmly on the liberal wing of the party, he became close friends with Senator Robert Kennedy and played a major part in opposition to the Vietnam War but denied rumours he had ambitions to run for political office himself. But he had no regrets. "With a modest amount of looks and talent and more than a modicum of serendipity," he wrote, "I've managed to stretch my 15 minutes of fame into more than half a century of good fortune."

The ‘NEW Original’: Jaguar XKSS Makes World Debut In Los Angeles The first genuine Jaguar XKSS to be built in almost 60 years was today given its world debut presentation at the Petersen Museum, Los Angeles by Jaguar Classic. The stunning XKSS, finished in Sherwood Green paint, has been created by the Jaguar Classic engineering team ahead of the production of nine cars for delivery to customers across the globe in 2017. Often referred to as the world’s first supercar, the XKSS was originally made by Jaguar as a road-going conversion of the Le Mans-winning Dtype, which was built from 1954-1956.

examples of XKSS were built.

In 1957, nine cars earmarked for export to North America were lost in a fire at Jaguar’s Browns Lane factory in the British Midlands; meaning just 16

The XKSS is the second continuation car to be created by Jaguar, following on from the six Lightweight E-types that were built in 2014. This project helped

Earlier this year Jaguar announced that its Classic division would build the nine ‘lost’ XKSS sports cars for a select group of established collectors and customers. The new one-off XKSS presented in Los Angeles is the summation of 18 months of research and will be used as a blueprint from which the nine continuation cars are built. The nine cars will be completely new, with period chassis numbers from the XKSS chassis log. All cars are now sold at a price in excess of £1million each.

Mustang Thrills For All Ages

the team learn to engineer cars that are faithful to the specifications to which they were built in period, and this knowledge has been enhanced in creating the ‘new original’ XKSS. The XKSS unveiled in Los Angeles is a period correct continuation, built using a

combination of original drawings from Jaguar’s archive and modern technology. The Jaguar Classic engineering team scanned several versions of the 1957 XKSS to help build a complete digital image of the car, from the body to chassis, and including all parts required. Under the bonnet, the XKSS is supplied with a 262hp 3.4-litre straight six-cylinder Jaguar D-type engine. The engine features completely new cast iron blocks, new cast cylinder heads and three Weber DC03 carburettors. Inside, the ‘new original’ XKSS features perfect recreations of the original Smiths gauges. Everything from the wood of the steering wheel, to the grain of the leather seats, through to the brass knobs on the XKSS dashboard, is precisely as it would have been in 1957.

The 97-year-old man who climbed into a mustang and drove it away; passion for iconic car spans half-acentury. Thrill-seeker Lennart Ribring is looking to join the ton-up club – of drivers aged 100 and over – after buying a new 5.0-litre V8 Ford Mustang. The young-at-heart driver fell in love with Mustang after being among the first in his native Sweden to buy an original model when it was launched in the 1960s. How to spend your 97th birthday? For Lennart Ribring the answer was easy. Behind the wheel of a unique and iconic sports car. Born in 1919, when the Ford Model T had only been in production for 11 years, Lennart got his driving licence at the first opportunity, when he turned 18 in 1937. Now he has treated himself to a new Ford Mustang fastback. Capable of 155mph and 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds, the race red sports car, takes pride of place on Lennart’s driveway at his home in Stockholm, Sweden. “My name is Lennart Ribring. I’m 97-yearsold. I drive a 5.0-litre V8 Ford Mustang fastback and I’m really happy,” he says in a video that captures the moment when Lennart picks up his new car from his

local Ford dealership, takes his son Michael for a spin, and shows it off to granddaughter Emilia. Lennart, who also enjoys sailing, was among the first people in the country to buy an original Ford Mustang in the 1960s. Now, more than 50 years later, it could be that he’s one of the world’s oldest Mustang drivers. “I fell in love with the first Mustangs that came out and I have hardly thought about another car since. You felt a bit like king of the road.” said Lennart. “I don’t have long to live now, maybe. So, I want to take the opportunities I have to drive and have a little fun in life. This is the real thing.” A retired businessman who still works part-time as an accountant, Lennart also has some wise words for those who plan on still being behind the wheel when they are approaching 100. “I would encourage younger drivers to let their porridge cool down first,” said Lennart. “Learn about a car properly before you drive it. You must always think about safety.” The new Mustang, the first to go on sale across Europe since the model was first launched in the U.S., in 1964, is available as a fastback or convertible, and with a 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine, as well as the 5.0-litre V8.

Gone But Not Forgotten; Memories of the Stars

Campoverde Theatre Group performed their latest supper show from the 13th to the 16th October at Phoenix Nights, San Miguel de Salinas to great critical acclaim. The show paid tribute to some of the fantastic stars that have died during 2016. This year has seen the passing of so many famous names of stage, music and television that the show could only celebrate the work of a few of these stars. However tribute was made to Cilla Black, Victoria Wood, Ron Moody, Val Doonican, Natalie Cole, Caroline Aherne, David Bowie, Patrick Macnee and Ben E King. The audiences loved hearing songs made famous by these stars and some of the much loved sketches created by talented writers like Caroline Aherne and Victoria Wood had people in laughing even before the piece even started.

This show fully fulfilled its promise to be an evening of great entertainment and the theatre group were warmly praised for their original production. In memory of Adele Kippin, one of Campoverde Theatre Group’s longest active members, who died recently, the group decided to donate the proceeds from the show to PADS, the charity with which Adele was very actively involved. Campoverde Theatre Group would love to welcome new members. The group is a warm and welcoming, we have fun rehearing for shows and our shows help raise money for various local charities. Joining Campoverde Theatre Group is a great way to make friends, develop a new interest whether in an acting, singing, dancing or back stage capacity.

No Win No Fee For Claims Against Bank Guarantors For more than 25 years, the Law Firm of Andreu & Alenda Abogados SCP has been serving the Torrevieja community. After a recent change in Spanish legislation, the Law firm can now offer their services on a No Win No Fee basis to serve claims against Banks for Off-Plan developments that were never fulfilled. If you were unfortunate enough to invest in such a scheme, you now have the opportunity to put forward a claim with a Law Firm that can boast a 100% success rate in the cases they have taken against Spanish Banks. Hundreds of expatriates who once thought they had said goodbye to their savings, now have the possibility of receiving a refund on their deposits as Andreu & Alenda Abogados work directly with the Banks that received payments directly from builders and developers for off-site construction. What many potential home owners failed to understand is that the vast majority of developers had to take out general bank guarantees for the buyers or an individual policy for each prospective client. Andreu & Alenda Abogados base their claims on the fact of Bank liability, as the financial institutes received payments directly from the developers however the banks did not grant individual guarantees to the buyers. Many of these builders and developers who sold off-site plans have gone into voluntary administration or filled for bankruptcy, making it impossible for you to receive a refund of all the monies paid to their client-

“We care about your case and we solve your problems” buyers directly from the developers. Some of these companies include Herrada del Tollo, SL; San Jose Inversiones, SL; Eurohouse 2010,SL; Huma Mediterraneo, SL etc... Andreu & Alenda Abogados SCP say: “We will assess your claim on a No Win No Fee basis, then we can tell you how successful your claim is likely to be. This service is 100% free and confidential. We offer our services on this basis because we think you have already paid a lot of money to buy your property. You have been though a distressing

situation but the main point is that we do believe we can help you to recover what you deserve. We file the petition in court asking for the refund of the principal amount invested plus the legal interest applied. We have already been 100% successful in recovering the amounts paid to developers, for all our clients. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any query you might have for a free, no obligation consultation. You can contact us by phone: 966 927 799 or by email: legalservice@andreualenda.com.”

Why You Need A Spanish Will by Fuensanta Alenda Andreu The European Union forced Spain to make changes to their laws, when it comes to writing out a Spanish Will and who will benefit after death. It is becoming usual (or more and more common) to file a petition before the Spanish courts on behalf of the children that were not included in the last will of their parents, British nationals and resident in Spain. Why? Last year came into force the European regulation No 650/2012, on jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement in matter of succession and on the creation of a European Certificate of Succession. This ruling is to apply to a succession involving the death of a person on or after August 17th 2015. One of the main significant changes to the present legal situation is that to succession and wills the applicable law is that of the State of the habitual residence of the decease but rather the law of the State with which the deceased was manifestly more closely connected. But what does that really mean? According to the Spanish Civil Code, the applicable law of who should benefit after death depended upon citizenship. Due to that, foreigners would typically grant their will according to their national law not observing the fixed rules established by the Spanish Civil Code. Now that the EURegNo 650/2012 has come into force, the applicable law will be that of the place of your habitual residence

must be given to your descendants, if you have them. One third of this can be freely deposited to the person or entity of your choice; you can leave it to whomever you wish. Most of the Common Wills granted by expats here in Spain, agree to leave what they own in Spain to their partner, whether they are married or not. This will be enforceable only if the testator included in their last will that the applicable law to the inheritance is their national law. The same law applies to the whole succession, irrespective of either the type of assets (moveable or immoveable) concerned or the country of their location. If not, Spanish law will be applied and his/her children might claim their rights. at the time of death, regardless of your original citizenship. However, the term habitual residence is not legally defined in this regulation, but this is a matter is something we shall cover in further articles. The applicable law will govern, for example, the determination of the beneficiaries and their respective shares; the capacity to inherit; the powers of the heirs; the executors of the wills and the administrators of the estate and the liability for the debts under the succession. This has a special relevance, as the Spanish Civil Code is completely different, for example, than British applicable law. One of the aspects of the Spanish law, is that two thirds of your rights and properties (despite their nature: house, car, jewellery, investments, etc...),

However, before their death, a person can instead choose that the applicable law should be the law of their country of nationality or they can choose the law of where they live, but in either case, this election must be clearly included in their will. Confused? Concerned? Assume nothing when it comes to the new laws. Our advice is to review the Will you have granted and verify the applicable law. If you have any doubts, have not already made a Will, or you want us to check it for you, do not hesitate to contact us on: legalservice@andreualenda.com. The information provided in this article is for general information purposes only and does not constitute professional legal advice as it covers just one of the many aspects of this matter.

What To Do In Case Of A Car Accident

By Andreu & Alenda Lawyers

treatment, even those arising from rehabilitation, medicines or personal aid required. Depending on your injuries, your lawyer will advise you of what costs can be claimed from the other party.

At Andreu & Alenda Lawyers, we always stress the importance of taking action within the first 72 hours following a car accident, as this is crucial in order to be successful when claiming damage compensation. Andreu & Alenda Lawyers recommend that you follow these tips in order to defend yourself and to maximize the probability of obtaining compensation for injuries that you may have suffered through no fault of your own: Do not move the cars from the collision area before taking pictures of the accident scene with your mobile phone. Photograph the vehicles at the crash site from different angles: take different points of view: from both sides: behind and in front: damage suffered to all the vehicles involved: if there is a traffic signal or traffic signs: lines on the road: of the personal injuries and of the witnesses, if any. Call the PolicĂ­a Local (if you are in town) or the Guardia Civil (if you are in the roads outside town). They will assist you and will take notice of all the relevant facts occur in the accident. They issue a report that can be very useful for future claims. Fill in and sign the DeclaraciĂłn Amistosa de Accidentes (the Friendly Report). It is filled with the personal information of both drivers (ID, phone,), license information of the cars involved, a picture of the collision points, the names of the insurance companies and it also needs to be signed by both parties. If you do not have a report to fill in with you, just make sure you get all those details from the other driver.

Obtain personal details of the witnesses of the accident and the occupants of the other vehicle. They will help you if you need to make a report before the authorities how the accident took place and to clarify whose fault was it. If the other party is responsible for the accident or the other driver involved in the car accident refuses to collaborate, you should take note of any details that may serve to identify them, the licence plate number, and any persons witnessing the accident, etc. Even though you might think you are not injured, we always recommend going to a Hospital or Medical Centre. Some damages, for example, a neck contracture (whiplash), appears a few hours after the accident occurs. Make sure the doctor drafts a detailed report stating the extent of any injuries resulting from the accident and a complete diagnosis. This report will be a very important factor for your lawyer. Keep receipts of all payments for the medical

As soon as you can, contact your lawyer so he/she can start proceedings with the insurance company in first instance. There is a deadline of seven days to submit the claim to your insurance company and a period of one year from the filing of the proceedings or the healing of your injury to file a claim for civil liability (ie, the economic compensation for your losses). The lawyer will file a petition claiming financial compensation for the physical aftermath (crutches, hired help, disability,) and any expenses that the accident has caused you. Accidents involving any vehicle can include costs that may not be readily apparent until well after the incident including: Vehicle repairs; Depreciation of a vehicle's value; Medical bills; Time lost from work; Car rentals; Towing charges; Pain and suffering. Andreu & Alenda Lawyers will be pleased to help you through this procedure. Please contact us calling 96 692 77 99 or by email: legalservice@andreualenda.com. We are based in Torrevieja but covers all Spanish Courts throughout Spain. Check out our 'pull out and keep' centre pages, with details of how to fill in the DeclaraciĂłn Amistosa de Accidentes (the Friendly Report) and a copy for you to cut out, or photocopy, and keep in your car: just in case.

Dogs Make People Better, Happier and Healthier Humans Life is better with dogs. Not only because they're adorable weirdos, but because they make their people better. Nearly all (93%) dog parents in the U.S. say their dog has made them a better person in at least one way, according to a new study released today by BarkBox, Bark & Co's monthly box of goodies for dogs and their humans. The first BarkBox Dog Parent Study found that dogs overwhelmingly have had a positive impact on a range of emotional, behavioural and even physical qualities in their people. Seven in ten (71%) dog parents say their pup has made them happier people, with nearly four in five saying it's easier to wake up in the morning because their dog greets them. About half of pup parents say their dog has made them more patient (54%), responsible (52%) or affectionate (47%). More than four in five (83%) say their dog has made them more active, with 72% saying their dog plays a role in their exercise decisions. In addition, dogs are the ultimate therapists with 85% of dog parents saying their dog has helped them get through a difficult time in their life. You Say "Boundaries!" Dog People Say, "What Are Those?" Long gone are the days of "ownership" and relegating dog to tiny houses in the back yard. Today's generation of modern dog parents welcome their pups into every area of their lives, even the bedroom and bathroom There's no such thing as oversharing when it comes to dogs. Nearly half (49%) of dog parents say their dog always or frequently shares the bed with them and more than a third

(36%) say they'd sleep in an uncomfortable position to keep their dog next to them at night. One third (33%) admit they have gotten intimate with someone while their dog was in the room. More than two in five (43%) dog parents always or frequently allow their dog to follow them into the bathroom while they're using it. Dog parents today look for every opportunity to spend time with their dog and, in many ways, treat them just like human members of the family. (And sometimes better than human members of the family!) One in four pup parents take their dogs to social gatherings (26%) and about one in five (19%) have snuck their dog into a place where dogs are not allowed. More than a third (34%) will sometimes take their pup on

dates with their significant other or a potential mate. Nearly one in five (19%) wish their dog could be an acceptable wedding guest. Nearly half (45%) admit to dressing up their dog in clothing and more than one in five (22%) dog parents have thrown their dog a birthday party. Your Reply When People Say You Spend Too Much Time With Your Dog: Bite Me

The study also found that buying toys and treats each month was a top way that dog parents make their dogs happy, which is only confirmed by the rapid growth of BarkBox. Since launching in 2012, BarkBox has shipped more than 30 million toys and treats to dearly loved pups in the U.S. and Canada. The curated box of

There's no denying the genuine love that people have for their dogs. More than four in five (83%) dog people consider their pup to be their best friend, validating the old adage. In fact, close to nine in ten (87%) dog parents say they love their dog more than they ever thought possible and more than half (56%) wish their dog could understand how much they mean to them. For many, the bond between man and dog even rivals the selfless love between humans. On average, Americans in relationships who tell their furry friend they love them do so six times per day, which is as often as they tell their significant other. Nearly nine in ten dog parents (87%) admit they're more accepting of their dog doing something than a human, and around half of them say snoring (52%), eating treats throughout the day (48%) or making a mess in the house (47%) are more tolerable. More than one in four (28%) dog parents have shared a secret with their dog that they haven't told anyone else. Nearly all dog parents (97%) would be willing to do something to make their pup happier, with many even willing to uproot their lives! In fact, close to two in five (38%) of them would move to a house or apartment with a bigger yard so their dog could have better playtime.

RippleBuds: World's 1st Noise Blocking Earbuds By Keith Nicol They are small, powerful audiophile earbuds with an in-ear microphone that excludes ambient noise taking bluetooth technology to the next level. RippleBuds is the world’s smartest Bluetooth earbuds equipped with an in-ear microphone system. With RippleBuds’ innovative Noise Blocking Technology, users can exclude ambient noise and clearly be heard/understood, even in the nosiest environments. You can also listen to music with these small, powerful audiophile earbuds that allow you to hear more of your favourite song, less of outside noise! Easily switch in-between phone conversations and work meetings without the hassle of dangling wires. RippleBuds is an innovative departure from the

traditional headset. Tiny, but powerful, RippleBuds provides maximum comfort with a minimal profile. RippleBuds captures the human voice from the ear. RippleBuds’ Noise Blocking Technology reduces ambient noise by about 30 decibels, allowing your voice to be heard clearly even when you’re in an extremely noisy environment. Their Noise Blocking Technology physically intercepts ambient noise due to the non-traditional positioning of the RippleBuds inear microphone. RippleBuds allows you to listen to music and have crystal-clear conversations while driving, cleaning, commuting, exercising, and performing the active tasks your busy life brings. Another prime feature: no more tangling wires. Although their very nature of being an in-ear device will make using them while driving in Spain an offence, as Spain remains one of the world's few countries to outlaw this practice. The "bud" itself lasts about 5 hours talking time with a fully charged recharging capsule provides 3 (for stereo) and 6 (for mono) cycles of full recharges to the buds. With RippleBuds there’s no need to search for a power outlet while onthe-go. As ambient noises are minimized, the voice command function on your device

Blazing Speed Meets Stunning Design With the New HTC Bolt™ A blaze of lightning across the sky. A world-class sprinter dashing across the finish line. Stunning speed is thrilling, exhilarating and empowering – and like a lightning bolt or sprinter, speed was the inspiration for HTC, a leading innovator in mobile and virtual reality technology, to create HTC Bolt: their fastest smartphone. With HTC Bolt web browsing, file downloading, streaming video and music is smooth and vivid. Sharing photos and videos with friends seems to be almost instantaneous and online gaming races like never before. Forged from glass and metal, HTC Bolt is a dramatic evolution of HTC's "sculpted by light" design. It features a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2K) display and it is the first water-resistant aluminium unibody Android phone2, along with more precise contours and a flatter back for sharper contrast that catches light beautifully. HTC Bolt features HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio, which scans your ears and the ambient noise around you to adjust audio output to suit your personal hearing capabilities. Just plug in the USB Type C headphones (included) and, almost instantly, you'll experience music and movies with thundering bass and pitch-perfect treble that sound clearer than you believed possible. In addition, Hi-Res audio delivers 24-bit sounds as you

would hear it in the movie theatre, nightclub or concert hall. Whether you're in town or out hiking, incredible moments can happen when you least expect them, so HTC Bolt's 16MP camera, supported by the Snapdragon processor, has OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) to reduce camera shake and capture sharp photographs and 4K video even in low light. With a quick camera launch time and an ultra-fast autofocus of 0.3s with Phase Detection Auto Focus, you'll be sure to capture the perfect shot every time. Selfies are great, too, with HTC Bolt. An 8MP front camera with Auto HDR means vivid details will bring out your smile and the environment behind you. Super-wide panorama mode lets you capture your whole family and an expansive background, and an integrated screen flash ensures shots look great in low light.

will perform more efficiently. RippleBuds comes with five sizes of ear-pads to provide maximum fit for users of all sized ear canals. Additionally, RippleBuds are sweat-proof and ear-pads are washable, making RippleBuds perfect for fitness-enthusiasts. There’s no need to blast music to overcome a loud environment. RippleBuds' three fin ear-pad design significantly reduces ambient noise while listening to music, preserving your precious hearing. Their Noisy Blocking Technology physically intercepts ambient noise around the user due to the non-traditional positioning of the RippleBuds microphone. Upon realizing the voice is emitted through the mouth AND ear, the RippleBuds' team placed a microphone in the human ear to effectively eliminate all sounds besides the voice. By doing this, they found an original way to capture the human voice from an entirely new source. This amounted in the birth of RippleBuds and the discovery of an innovative solution for modern-day communication.

Snow in the Sierra Bernia By David Hudson I have been asked about my travels in our 600 and with the recent heavy snow around Spain, this is a good time to start. Being Vice President of only the eleventh Spanish club to be formed in Spain, in those early days of the classic scene in Spain, the clubs supported each other fully. We started off in our SEAT 600E from Torrevieja in the dark one Sunday in January 2005, at 7.30am and to help us on our way (NOT) it was freezing and raining. Being in a car designed in the 50s it took sometime to warm up but eventually the windows cleared and we warmed up ourselves. Our destination was Benissa 150 kms north of Alicante near Denia to meet other Spanish Clubs to help the town celebrate their Feria of San Antonio with a Medieval street fair and exhibition of crafts. We were invited by the organising Club; Amics 600 Denia, to display our cars in a reserved area as part of the fiesta. At the service area near Elche we joined members from Amigos 600 Elche, resulting in a fine display of Cars and Motorcycles. Approaching Alicante the rain stopped and the sky lightened with streaks of pink and orange. Passing Benidorm it looked like a summer's day except for the foot of snow by the side of the motorway.

Only a few days before, the motorway was closed due to a large snowfall and was only opened the day before to traffic. We eventually entered Benissa and parked in the exhibition area, joining cars from Javea, Denia and Albacete. A journey of over 300 kms. Whilst waiting we let a Columbian and his two boys pose for pictures inside our car. Now it was turning very cold, so it was off to the nearest bar for a hot drink and tostadas dripping with jam. Then it was time to go for the “recorrido turistico” a drive in the country. And so with a police escort at the front and back of the convoy of classics, we were off into the unknown. Everything is done noisily in Spain, with much tooting and sirens from us, which mixed nicely with the police sirens as we passed through villages on the way up the mountains. The jagged peaks cut into the bright blue sky; everything was clean and sharp. We were now climbing sharply up the single track road. The line of 70 Classic cars snaked ahead in the snow up the mountain that lay behind Guardalest, which overlooks Benidorm. You could almost sense the excitement of the Spaniards, many of whom may have only seen snow on the television but never physically been out in it. It was now that I was pleased we had a police escort as

John Brett snowballing his wife on the mountains

passing became nerve racking with sheer drops only inches away. Still there is always a sense of adventure when we go out in our little 600, especially as our Spanish friends do not know fear or worry about the unknown. Finally we arrived at the top. Everyone piled out of their cars and very soon there were snowballs everywhere. As I walked amongst the parked cars that had plates of food sitting on the roofs for anyone to help themselves, I came across Juan with a wooden barrel hanging from his neck. He asked me if I would like some “muy buen Vino Tinto”. As the liquid trickled down my throat it hit the bottom and exploded into a warm glow causing me to gasp. With a big grin on his bearded face he added “con whiskey”. Angie was explaining about building a

Coche Fantastico following the convoy on top of the mountains

snowman to her Spanish friend Laura who said that they called them snow dolls “Munecas de Nieve” and immediately began building one with Angie helping. So up on top of the mountains is a snowman with a pipe. We then began our descent towards Alicante and soon burst into the sun and with it the ice and snow disappeared and we were overlooking Benidorm and the blue, sparkling sea. We were on a single track road with seemingly bottomless drops either side. It was not for the faint hearted but seeing the sea and dinky cars below in the sun it was a moment that I am glad I had experienced. On reaching the motorway it was a turn left and still with our police escort, a steady drive back to Benissa. The total length of the trip of 60kms, all of it with a free police escort. We arrived back in Benissa to again exhibit our cars for the public to enjoy. We were now free to enjoy the medieval fayre which wound itself through the narrow streets with various crafts and foods of the period. Stall holders in authentic costume

displayed their wares and some were giving displays of their craft. A display of falcons drew an interested crowd together with two large snakes that could be handled by anyone brave enough. There was a human chess game of Moors and Christians for the intelligent. But for me it was the display of Antique vehicles that included a 1927 M.G. in British Racing Green and an exhibition of impeccable motorcycles with many old Spanish makes that included a Spanish Army motorbike and sidecar from the Civil War that had two brakes: the normal one for the rider and a lever for the passenger to pull because of the extra weight that included a machine gun. The owner was a real character with many stories to tell and was happy to run the engine and explain it in detail how it all worked. Finally we sat down to a traditional meal of Cocido con Pelotas which was delicious and provided by the Town Hall of Benissa as a thank you. Then it was time to say goodbye to friends, old and new, and get into our car once more for the two hour return journey of 150 kms; and home.

Gordon Strachan is to remain as Scotland head coach after the Scottish FA board gave the 59-yearold its "unanimous" backing. Chief executive Stewart Regan issued a statement after its review of a poor start to their World Cup campaign. "The board are convinced that he still has the hunger for this challenge and we have four home qualifiers in 2017 to rejuvenate our campaign," he said. "We support Gordon unanimously in improving our qualification prospects." There had been speculation about Strachan's position after Friday's 3-0 defeat by England at Wembley. It left the Scots in fifth place, with only four points from their opening four games in Group F. Fifa has opened disciplinary proceedings against England and Scotland for wearing poppies in Friday's World Cup qualifier. Players from both countries wore black armbands bearing a poppy during England's 3-0 win at Wembley, with the game taking place on Armistice Day. Rules forbid "political" statements on shirts. Fifa, world football's governing body, would not "speculate on any outcome or provide an estimated timeline". However, world football's governing body would

not specify before Friday's fixture whether England or Scotland would face punishment for doing so this time around. Ex-England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and MK Dons have been in contact over the vacant manager's role. It is not clear whether the 36-year-old midfielder, who is set to leave MLS side LA Galaxy in December, will retire from playing should he land the role. He would succeed Karl Robinson at MK Dons, who are 21st in League One. Gerrard, England's fourth most-capped player, left Anfield in 2015 after 17 years in the first team, playing 710 times and winning eight major trophies. MK Dons are exploring a number of opportunities, and Gerrard is understood to be one of numerous candidates. Gerrard is currently pursuing his Uefa A coaching licence - the secondhighest qualification offered. In the Daily Mail, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says he plans to use the January transfer window for long-term signings - dampening speculation over a potential short-term move for 36-year-old midfielder Steven Gerrard, who is leaving LA Galaxy. England players have been banned by the Football Association from having nights out while on international duty. The FA is looking into claims several players were out until late on Saturday night after Friday's 3-0 win over Scotland - less than three days before they drew 2-2 with Spain in a friendly. Wayne Rooney apologised after pictures showed him at a wedding that night. The FA, whose decision is not prompted purely by Rooney's night

out, is not expecting to discipline anyone.

Klopp dismisses Rooney controversy. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says the pictures of Wayne Rooney at a wedding while on England duty are "nothing" and adds that today's players are the most professional ever.

Manchester United will lose more than £20m in sponsorship income from Adidas if they fail to qualify for next year's Champions League. The German sportswear giant is in the second season of a 10-year, £750m deal. After announcing a fall in first-quarter revenue, United said the annual payment will reduce by 30% if they do not reach Europe's flagship competition for a second successive season. United are sixth in the Premier League, six points off the top four. "There is a clause in the Adidas contract that applies if we are missing from the Champions League for two years in a row," said United's chief financial officer Cliff Baty. "An example would be if we [were due to receive] £70m [in a given year], we would not receive £21m." The sum is taken off each year of the contract, with the first payment covering the years for which the deal - which came into force in 2015 - has been active. Baty said a failure by United to get out of the Europa League group stage this season would cost the club "single digit millions". The reduction in income is largely down to United playing three fewer home games than in the same period in 2015. Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has been ruled out for four weeks with an ankle injury. The 21-year-old Spaniard was injured during the the north London derby against Tottenham on 6 November. "He got injured in the last 10 seconds in a very strong tackle from Danny Rose," said Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. Bellerin, who has played in all 11 of Arsenal's league fixtures this season, could miss eight games, including the visit of Paris St-Germain. Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is "convinced" Lionel Messi will end his career at the club. The fourtime Ballon d'Or winner, whose current deal expires in the summer of 2018, is yet to agree new terms. Bartomeu said: "All of Barca believe this is how it has to be, because he is the player that in the last few years has brought us sporting success." The 29-year-old Argentina forward has scored 433 times in 456 appearances during his time at the Nou

Camp. Reports in Spanish newspaper suggested the club legend had rejected an offer of a new contract. But the Barcelona president added: "I believe we've got a team with incredible players, all of them. "There is nonetheless a leader of course, Leo Messi, he is well known and popular all over the world. "We're all convinced, we're all positive Leo Messi will end his sporting career in Barca." Meanwhile in the gossip world, the Sun say: Manchester United have admitted defeat in their pursuit of Lionel Messi and believe Manchester City would be favourites to sign the 29-year-old Argentina forward if he left Barcelona. Staying with United the Daily Mirror note that Everton will not sign Manchester United forward Memphis Depay on loan as the Red Devils do not want to let the 22year-old leave and England forward Wayne Rooney, 31, is set to be left out of the Manchester United team to face Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday, while United have stepped up their interest in 23-year-old Paris St-Germain defender Serge Aurier. Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho is furious with the Football Association for neglecting their duty of care to the striker after pictures Elseid Hysaj

emerged of him at a wedding party at the weekend. Mourinho wants to sign £25m Napoli full-back Elseid Hysaj, 22, as he prepares to allow centre-back Chris Smalling and right-back Matteo Darmian, both 26, to leave. But Mourinho may have to abandon a move for Monaco full-back Fabinho, 23, because of the Ligue 1 side's likely Champions League progress.

The Price Of Football

The annual BBC Price of Football study is the biggest of its type in Europe, gathering season and matchday ticket prices from clubs across 23 leagues in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the continent. The study also looks at how much UK clubs charge for pies, programmes, shirts, tea and away tickets. This year the BBC have analysed more than 1,000 ticket prices in six categories - cheapest and most expensive matchday ticket, cheapest away ticket and most expensive away ticket, and cheapest season ticket and most expensive season ticket. Plymouth Argyle were the only club out of 224 who declined to take part in the study.

League match, because top-flight clubs have capped prices for visiting fans at £30. How else can clubs make money?Manchester United are the most profitable football club in England and signed a £750m 10-year kit deal with Adidas in 2014. According to the club's website, Manchester United now have 25 official partners. The most recent name to add to the list was a company called Mlily, which became United's official global pillow and mattress partner. And yes - in football, we now have partners, not sponsors.

The good news is that Fans can expect a faster reduction in Premier League ticket prices from next year, when the full financial benefits of a bumper TV deal come into effect, a football finance expert has predicted. The BBC Price of Football study found the cheapest adult matchday ticket has reduced by £1.90 to £29.05 this season. A new TV deal means top-flight clubs will share £8.3bn from 2016-19. "It will only be at the end of the year when clubs get the TV payments," said Professor Rob Wilson. "Clubs have either frozen or marginally reduced ticket prices this year, but then we should see savings accelerate as the TV deal comes on more fully." More than two-thirds of ticket prices across the UK have been either cut or frozen for the 2016-17 season. However, an away ticket in the Championship can now be more expensive than for a Premier

There is no team in Britain to touch United when it comes to making money. The club's commercial income was £260m last year, enhanced by a kit deal from Adidas that pays around £75m per year. The club's commercial tentacles have crept around the world and, for all the abuse that has come their way, the impetus for that has come from the arrival of the Glazer family a decade ago. They brought with them a very American focus on marketing, which has now become commonplace in England's top tier. So Watford have an official foreign exchange trading partner; Arsenal have an official Indonesian telecommunications partner and just about everyone has an official betting partner.

Manchester City have 35 official partners, including a phone company in Cameroon. And that's where the future lies. As the Premier League's popularity grows around the world, the commercial opportunities will grow in tandem. China and South-East Asia are seen as huge market - but it may not be an equal battle. Clubs with established reputations, notably Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal, will find it easier to sign big-money deals than anyone else.
