Local police refuse to work overtime The unions of the Orihuela Local Police have announced that their officers are not going to work any overtime or work the established hours to cover events until an agreement is reached over a series of improvements they have been proposing for several years. In a statement they warned they are also considering “more serious measures which for the moment will not be applied”. The unions explained “we have been

trying to negotiate with the Town Hall for years but so far nothing has been resolved”. Their demands are as follows: Restore the 10 vacant places and take on as many additional officers as possible under the law to meet needs; Scrap the process to hire Mobility Officers and use the money to create new Police Officers. Regarding part-time officers, they demand equal pay on different scales, a regulation to cover second jobs, compliance with agreed working conditions, a committee to negotiate, establishment of minimum hours. Councillor Mariola Rocamora said the system for covering events (sport, culture, social and fiestas) is vital to guarantee people’s safety and was agreed to by unions, allowing officers to volunteer for

six hour shifts during the year and be paid €207 for each one. She indicated the law allows large towns to appoint council workers who are not police as Mobility Agents to direct traffic. The union reps met with Councillor Rafael Almagro on Friday as a first step towards starting negotiations. Unions warn events may not be able to go ahead, particularly in villages and Orihuela Costa “Not working extra shifts will mean less officers are available each day and at weekends,” explained SPPLB union rep Francisco Cánovas. “If there are not enough then activities will have to be postponed unless somebody wants to take responsibility in case something happens.”

The police force currently has about 140 officers but the unions calculate more than 200 are needed to cover the whole municipality. They say the creation of Mobility Officers to direct traffic “makes no sense” because they could not issue fines and so “would be like any citizen who can call us if they see a drunk driver but cannot fine them”. Another meeting has been scheduled for next week.

BITE SIZE A happy ending in sight for the cemetery tree NEWS: Fire in flat at Punta Prima A fire started in the kitchen on 6th June and destroyed part of the second floor of a property in the urbanisation Cala Dorada. Escaping gas made the work of the fire brigade more difficult and meant they had to close the street. The fire took place at around 7.10pm and fortunately no one was hurt. The property is the home of an elderly British person. There were further complications once the fire was extinguished as it once more reignited due to the presence of gas. The Guardia Civil are now investigating the cause.

The Samaritans Summer Fayre The Fayre will be held on 16th June from 10am until 2pm on the ground floor of the Punta Marina Commercial Centre. There will be a number of attractions including a Zumba demonstration, fashion show, stalls, tombola and raffle. Entertainment will be provided by The Dayamante Singers and Sunshine FM. Money raised goes towards supporting their 24 hour free phone line and other services to help those who need someone to talk to.

Torrevieja’s recycling challenge Torrevieja’s recycling record is good when it comes to glass but doesn’t fare well in comparison to national figures for light packaging, paper and cardboard. This deficit has been attributed to a lack of

What should be done with the eucalyptus tree that is a well-known landmark outside the cemetery walls in Torrevieja? The tree is 3.6 metres in diameter and has been a feature there for more than half a century. It is a rare species of eucalyptus in Spain and is remembered and recognised by many visitors to the town. However, its position and existence has been threatened by Iberdrola’s plans to give more power to the desalination plant. The news that it was to be moved caused great consternation amongst local people. It has provided relief and solace for many on their journeys to and from the cemetery and the idea that it should be relocated or even destroyed has been met with horror. It’s been under threat due to the laying of additional electricity cable needed to double the capacity of the desalination plant. The tree lies bang in the middle of the planned route for the cable. However, its predicament has at-

tracted the attention of many local people keen to see that the tree is not forced to budge from its current location. Some other trees in the area have already been moved. An olive tree and a pine tree have been uprooted and replanted elsewhere. However, moving this great tree is a more complicated procedure. Now, a solution has been found at the last minute. An organisation called Dotor Árbol, a business from Catalonia, specialises in the rescue and preservation of trees in similar circumstances. They use a special method that enables the cable to be placed below the ground without the need to remove the tree. The good news is that this operation will be paid for by Iberdrola and with a guarantee that the tree will not be harmed as a result of the process, this has to be one piece of good news.

Continued from page 3 recycling containers for this type of product. Currently the town has 604 collection points for glass but only 180 for paper and cardboard. Councillor Fanny Serrano, responsible for the environment, has indicated that there should be 1,000 such containers in a town of this size. Councillor Serrano wants the people of Torrevieja to recognise the importance of recycling. The Ecoembes recycling van has been established in the Plaza de la Constitución and in the Paseo de Vista Alegre. It will also be touring the town, visiting the markets and some of the beaches.

Hispanic Cuban days The cultural festival celebrating Spain’s relationships with Cuba will be held from June 30th to July 21st. This is the third time this event has taken place and is intended to celebrate the fusion of the two cultures. The links were first established between the sailors who travelled between the two countries and traded with one another. As a result, a wealth of folklore, literature and, of course, music has grown. Now the links will be celebrated during this important festival held in July. There will be conferences, workshops, films, an exhibition of art and children’s activities. There are many dates and activities planned in conjunction with the university. Some of these are likely to appeal to a very specific audience. However, others have a more universal appeal. On Friday 20th July there will be a workshop held in the Parque de Doña Sinforosa that includes African percussion and flamenco for all the family. There will also be music from the band Septeto Miguelito Quesada – Son y salsa and the day will conclude with a dance session by Ion Din Anina DJ global. Events will continue on Saturday 21st July with music by the sea including a mixture of traditional jazz with a Cuban theme. Other dance and music performances will continue the evening which will conclude with an Afterparty in the Marinas Salinas port.

50 tonnes of fish in one day! It was a bumper harvest on 7th June at the fish market in Torrevieja. A total of 6,000 crates of fish were sold for €100,000. The auction took place from 7.30am and the price of each box was around 15 euros. This mammoth delivery of fish was made by boats from across the region including from Murcia, Mazarrón and even Almería. Altogether between 15 and 20 vessels delivered their catches which included large quantities of anchovies and sardines. Most of the fish was bought by wholesalers but also restaurants and fish mongers. The fisherman’s guild implemented measures to try and ensure that sales took place only within the market and not on the periphery. The increased sales of fish were very welcome after two weeks which had seen poor catches and little to celebrate. The boats, unloaded, were once again stocking up with ice and ready to set out to sea again in the hope of more good catches to come.

Street light contract in trouble Many of Torrevieja’s street lights need replacing and complaints about lack of lighting are often received by the town hall. However, there are difficulties now in finding the right company to do the work. Only two of the 18 companies who have applied to take it on have met the technical and financial conditions necessary. The commissioning process has been taking place for the last year much to the Continued on page 6

Partying passengers force Ibiza flight detour

Pilar puts speed bumps on main streets

Passengers partying too hard on a BelfastIbiza flight forced an emergency landing in Toulouse, south-western France on Friday night. The exact details of the disruptions have not been revealed, but it is known that one of the passengers was removed from the aircraft in Toulouse. Due to land in Ibiza at 7.35pm, the Jet2 flight left the Northern Ireland capital at 3.30pm, but the urgent landing in France led to a two-hour delay, with passengers finally arriving on the Balearic party island at exactly 9.38pm. Some airlines have been reconsidering whether to serve or even allow alcohol on flights. Ryanair is reported to have announced a ban on duty-free alcohol entering the cabin for UK-Ibiza routes.

Pilar de la Horadada Councillor José Francisco Albaladejo had informed that speed bumps have been installed on the main streets in the municipality to improve safety for vehicles and pedestrians. He said that because the vehicles have to slow down it will also reduce their noise and emissions. They have already been installed on Avenida de lo Monte in Pilar and the avenues of urbanisation Mil Palmeras. Albaladejo informed that they plan to install them all over the municipality, as well as raised pedestrian crossings, “all to create a more pedestrian friendly town”.

Give us our coffee break back! More than 400 pensioners gathered together on 9th June in Torrevieja to protest at the continued closure of the cafes in their Casas de la Tercera Edadcentres. The centres for the elderly have had their five cafes closedfor at least two years whilst contracts have been drawn up enabling them to open again. Since then those using the centres have waited patiently for their reopening. There are four centres for the third age which include Acequión, San PascualCentro Calvario, La Punta-Pedro Lorca and La Mata. In addition a facility is also offered in the Centro Municipal de Ocio (CMO). The cafes have remained unused whilst arrangements were being made to organise the contract. The pensioners are angry at the amount of time that this has taken. However, the process of contracting out a service is not a simple one. The offer must be made first and applications invited from anyone interested in providing the service.

The situation has been further complicated by the introduction of a new contracting law which meant that the whole process had to be started again a year ago. According to the president of the Casa de la Tercera Edad de San Pascual, the problem is not so much a political one but is being caused by the technicians who are responsible for drawing up and validating contracts. The mayor, José Manuel Dolón, did come down from his office at the town hall to hear the protests of the pensioners. The mayor announced that pensioner representatives could meet with the technicians to iron out any misunderstandings there might be. Following the protest and discussions with technicians, the mayor announced that the cafes could be open again by September. He accepted the undesirability of the situation with those attending the centres forced to bring bottles of water and other refreshments in their bags. He is optimistic that the situation will be rectified as soon as possible. Suzanne O’Connell

BITE SIZE NEWS: Three weekends of music

Continued from page 5 frustration of those living with failing street lamps. Not only do some lights need repairing but the system itself is at fault due to its age. It is the intention to replace this antiquated system with a more modern grid that improves reliability and value for money. However, the business to do this is not proving easy to find.

Torrevieja South meeting with mayor A neighbourhood organisation based in Torrevieja south met with the mayor, José Manuel Dolón, to share their concerns about the area. The meeting took place on 4th June and issues were raised about urban cleaning and maintenance of the neighbourhoods green areas. The southern area of Torrevieja includes Mar Azul, Eliseos Playa, Los Chimos and Playa Verde. The mayor promised to make a personal visit to the area to take a look at the reasons for the neighbours’ complaints. He also made a commitment to the repair of the playground next to the promenade.

From 24th June to the 7th July there will be music by the sea on Saturdays and Sundays. On the Paseo Juan Aparicio and by las piscinas naturales on the front there will be musical entertainment from 8.30pm until 1am in the morning. It will be a varied collection of musical types including bands from Australia, Nepal, Colombia, France and Spain. The initiative is being organised by the department of culture and will be free. Councillor Domingo Pérez announced that it will consist of music from all over the world. The only common factor will be the care that is taken to select those taking part and their quality. The event will begin on Sunday 24th June with the group Candeleros, which consists of Colombian and Venezuelan musicians followed by a session of tropical/electronic dance music by the Colombian duo Guacamayo Tropical DJs. This type of music brings together new sounds that have taken over the dance floors in the capital with more traditional Latin American and electronic music sou-

nds. On 30th June the music will continue with the performance of Ed is Dead from Madrid who will present their latest album Your Last 48 hours which has been acclaimed by critics and the public as the best electronic album of the year in Spain. The band leader, producer and DJ will close the day with a session that should delight electronic dance lovers. The final performances will be on 7th July with Nepal from Katmandú. This band brings together the rhythms from the west, jazz and rock together with the Nepalese tradition and music that takes us to the magical world of the Himalayas. Lolo Lovina is a band of gypsies from Sydney Australia who perform a mixture of swing, tango and even heavy metal. To conclude will be the French DJ DJ Grounchoo one of the main characters in the nightlife of Barcelona, Río de Janeiro, Berlin, Rome and many other places. He will present a session that includes ska, punk and latin and electronic rhythms. Suzanne O’Connell

Help Vega Baja offers more support for those on their own

The plight of the lonely and isolated within the community is something that has been high on the agenda for the local care group for many months. HELP Vega Baja decided that it would take a step towards supporting those who are lonely or who, for whatever reason, feel they would benefit from someone to talk to. To this end, from 1st July this year, the charity will extend its existing 24-hour non-medical emergency helpline to incorporate a new Connections Team. This team will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to not only provide advice and information on all the usual requests that come through regularly on

the helpline, but who will be specially trained to offer guidance and support to anyone who wants to talk with them. Michele Masson, President of HELP Vega Baja told Costa Blanca People: “Through our talks to groups etc. around the area and discussions with other organisations, we are very aware of the plight of people in the community who are experiencing difficult times and who may benefit from having someone to talk with. This new service will enable people to pick up the phone at any time of the day or night and chat with a caring, compassionate and trained volunteer who will listen to their concerns, offer guidance where it is appropriate

or simply be at the other end of the phone when that person needs to talk. “People often feel like they are the only ones struggling but nothing could be further from the truth. Many people around us struggle with life, loneliness, grief and other issues and talking to someone who is non-judgemental can make the world of difference to their lives. We know we can rely upon our supporters to spread the word about this service. It is our aim to help people whenever we can and wherever it is needed, whether this is working alone or alongside other charities. The new service is the beginning of a new chapter for the charity and we are very excited about the future.” The Connections Team service is in addition to the charity’s existing services which they offer through their centre in San Miguel, La Marina Helpdesk and all other areas within the community where HELP Vega Baja is represented. If you would like to find out more about the Connection Team or HELP Vega Baja charity, contact their San Miguel Centre on 966 723 733, email office@ helpvegabaja.com or visit their website at www.helpvegabaja .com or their Facebook page.

New government, new chance The local government of Torrevieja are seeing the election of PSOE leader Pedro Sánchez as an opportunity to make changes in Torrevieja. For three years they have been asking for work to be done on particular projects in the town, including the N332. Now with Rajoy removed and the new Prime Minster in place, they are hoping that some of their wish list might be ticked.

In his letter addressing the new PM and congratulating him on his new job José Manuel Dolón has asked; ‘As the mayor of a town that has a population greater than 100,000 inhabitants, a figure that is more than quadrupled in the summer months, we’re asking that you take account of the services that have been blocked by previous governments.’ It remains that councils which do not have the same political leanings as those in government, be it regional, provincial or national, tend not to have as much granted to them. The change of national government leadership from PP to PSOE is seen as an opportunity. The list of requests includes work on the seafront walkways, updating of local neighbourhoods and other works promised as compensation for the construction of the desalinisation plant and the widening of the N332. The council is also asking for the repeal of laws which restrict spending. Suzanne O’Connell

Uniformed librarians To accommodate demand, we recently announced that the town’s libraries would be open for longer periods of time. In exam season many students want to study longer and later to prepare. Now, it’s some local police officers who have been given the task of staffing the libraries during these extended hours. The argument put forward by the town council is that the police officers do have the maintenance of security at town hall buildings as part of their brief. As they are not required to fulfil librarian functions such as loaning out books, there is no clash of responsibilities here. However, this appears to have opened up a hornet’s nest with disgruntled police officers pointing out that their job is already a very diverse one that includes collecting stray dogs, without extending this any further by adding library duties. The library situated on Avenida de Diego Ramírez in Acequión has extended opening hours until 15th July. The usual staff there will not have their hours extended and so, new sources of personnel had to be found. It’s the Local Police who have been given the duty of providing a lending hand during their usual shifts in order to supervise it. The new opening hours are now from 8pm until 12am and until 1am on Saturday morning. The extended hours, however, are only for the use of the library as a study area and there are no additional services, such as book loans, provided during this time. However this new duty is not one of the changes that the local police were hoping to see. Instead they were hoping for new equipment including bulletproof vests and tasers. Suzanne O’Connell

Winner of the design competition The winners of the design competition in Torrevieja’s town centre have now been an-nounced. The competition included students from Alicante University who are in their first or second year of studying architecture. They were asked to design sculptures for 22 local shops and businesses who had signed up for this initiative. The jury found it a difficult competition to judge. ‘All the students demonstrated work at a high level,’ explained their representative. Along with allocating a first, second and third, it was decided to also include four honourable mentions. The members of the jury visited each of the outlets to determine the level of originality and creativity as well as the extent to which it matched the venue, the use of materials and how ecofriendly the design was. After their deliberations the first prize, worth €450, was given to Hélice which could be found in Confitería Concepción and was created by Carla Samper and Sara García. The second prize went to the team Angélica Martínez, Alicia Andréu and Claudia Lozano who had designed theirs for the the florists- Floristería Carmina. Their creation was entitled Mesh and they received €300 as the second prize winners. Their structure was appropriately, made up of paper flowers. Third prize went to the design, wet created by Gracia Agulló and Lola Gómez. They won €200 for

Cockroach invasion predicted There will be a lot more cockroaches in Spain this summer, a health body has warned. The National Association of Environmental Health Companies (ANECPLA) said in a statement that there was a very high risk of a steep rise in the bug in the coming months. It blamed the predicted proliferation on a combination of heavy rains throughout the spring and the steep increase in temperatures forecast in the summer.

The heat and humidity cause the insects to leave their natural habitat to find new shelters with water, food and an optimum temperature. That means they’ll be invading – or at least attempting to invade – homes and restaurants. The vile bugs can contaminate food and bring the risk of infections like dysentery or salmonella poisoning. ANECPLA said cockroaches are more nocturnal but are often seen during the

day when the population is very high or they need food. As a preventative measure, the health body recommends hiding any sources of water or food that could attract cockroaches. Homes or establishments should also have good ventilation and cover up cracks in the wall or floors. If they are detected, it is best to call a professional pest control company. Cockroaches are insects of the order Blattodea, which also includes termites. About 30 cockroach species out of 4,600 are associated with human habitats. About four species are well known as pests.

What should students wear in the classroom In Callosa de Segura a teacher from IES Vega Baja refused entry to the classroom by a student who he considered to be wearing inappropriate clothing. The student was wearing shorts that were too short. This has now opened up a debate about what exactly is appropriate clothing for students in classrooms in Spain. One of the marked differences between schools here and in the UK is that uniform is the exception rather than the rule. Only some of the private and semiprivate schools enforce a strict uniform policy. The majority of state schools allow their students to wear, more or less, what they choose. And it’s not just the students. Teachers too have a very relaxed dress code with even headteachers turning up in jeans and a T-shirt. Each school has its own agreed code or reglamento de regiment interno, which more or less would appear to allow for anything and everything. A strict dress code might appear to be a logical approach to improving school discipline and asserting the authority of the school. However, it also provides another means of demonstrating your opposition to it. Most adults will recall the ways in which they bent the uniform rules with kipper ties and receding hemlines. There are also issues around the cost and availability of uniform. Some state schools in the UK have managed to limit their entry to those who can afford their uniform. Having different outfits for sports, summer and winter can mean some parents feel excluded and the school

takes on a semi-private nature albeit by the back door. Following the exclusion of the student wearing very short, shorts, the student’s union has emphasised the importance of schools and students maintaining a dialogue when it comes to what it is acceptable to wear. On the other hand the union for teachers is keen to emphasise that clothing must reflect that a school is an educational space and that clothing must support this. The case in la Vega Baja had not just arisen, we are told. The conflict with the dress code was already a subject under discussion. There is general agreement that the decision to refuse entry to a classroom should not be a matter for an individual teacher but for the school management. Suzanne O’Connell

WEEKLY EURO UPDATE Manufacturing PMI came in at 54.4, half a point higher on the month and nearly a point above forecast. Sterling strengthened by an average of 0.6% after the announcement and adding three quarters of a euro cent. However, despite a UK construction sector purchasing managers’ index that was unchanged on the month and half point above forecast. Sterling lost ground to all the majors and just about everything else, falling by an average of 0.6%. This is due to the uncertainty around Brexit and the gathering storm of the major vote in parliament and rumours of a split Cabinet. Next Tuesday the prime minister wants parliament to debate 15 amendments to the EU withdrawal legislation before scrapping them and voting the bill through unchanged. Investors are not convinced that such an approach is in the best interests of the economy or the pound. The ”Markit” purchasing managers’ index for Britain’s services sector came in at 54.0 for May, a point ahead of forecast. This proved to be good news for the pound, despite the numbers looking lessthan-stellar in contrast to the US figures. Sentix reported a halving of Euroland investor confidence from 19.2 to 9.3 and producer prices in the euro zone were flat on the month, leaving them 2.0% higher on the year. Neither announcement had a demonstrable effect on the euro. European economic statistics showed Spanish industrial output increasing by an annual 1.9%, considerably less than the anticipated 5.0%, and Swiss inflation accelerating from 0.8% to 1.0%. South African business confidence was two points softer at 94. There are rumours that the European Central Bank might bring forward to next Thursday the policy announcement that had previously been expected to come in July. That announcement is supposed to shed more light on the winding down of the bank’s asset purchase programme. One of the key takeaways from a recent G7 meeting was the unanimous concern and disappointment felt by finance ministers and central bank governors regarding Donald Trump’s new trade tariffs. The dollar faltered a little after the stern words. G7 heads of government will meet today in Quebec and the omens are not good. The current acrimony between Trump and

the six leaders of the free world is in the spotlight. Normally, G7 summits attract only passing interest from financial markets but this one is a bit different, in that the US president might be persuaded to modify his stance on trade. Although some analysts argue that US import tariffs will be positive for the currency, the overall picture will not become clear until America’s victims pull the trigger on their retaliatory measures. The US did have good news to share early in the week, but the president’s pre-empting of the employment data release spoiled any chance for the dollar to make gains on the back of it. Nonfarm payrolls exceeded forecast by a net 50k and unemployment ticked down to 3.8%. However, the dollar received no further help from the strong data when they appeared, partly due to a tweet from the President earlier in the day highlighting the numbers and it lost a cent to sterling. US factory orders fell by 0.8% in April instead of the forecast 0.5% but the dollar remained unchanged. Nor did the greenback move on the announcement of the services sector PMI despite a result of 56.8, beating predictions by 1.1 point. The Canadian dollar has been struggling this week. It appears that investors feel that analysts were previously too optimistic about the number of times the Bank of Canada (BoC) can raise interest rates during the months ahead because of the increasing levels of uncertainty about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement. While many feel the long-term outlook is optimistic, in the short term the Loonie may be in for something of a bumpy ride. The 0.4% monthly increase in Australian retail sales, reported early this morning, helped the Aussie ahead early in the week and it shared first place with the pound. More good news in the service sector for Australia; the PMI came in at a healthy 59.0. Australian first quarter GDP growth came in at 1.0%, beating the forecast 0.9%. Annual growth also exceeded expectations, at 3.1% instead of 2.8%. As expected, the Reserve Bank of Australia held interest rates at 1.5% for the 20th straight month.

Let’s plant different species of plants as well as herbs Herbs are something that most of us like, whether it’s just to look at, to smell or to add to our food as flavouring. Herbs can be grown either indoors or outdoors, so you don’t even have to have a garden to grow them, although a windowsill so that they can get the natural sunlight and fresh air will always improve on their growth and flavour. There are many types of herbs but one of the most popular is Basil and therefore some detail will be gone into in this article. Basil can be grown from seed or an easier way to almost guarantee growth is to buy them as seedlings. These can be obtained from most supermarkets and nurseries.

BASIL (Osimum Basilicum) is called ALBAHACA in Spanish As far as it is known, Basil was grown in Egypt over 4,000 years ago (since written records began) and may have been used for embalming. The first part of its Greek name explains that Ocimus organised fighting combats in honour of Pallas who was a ruler and had 50 sons! The Greeks believed that when Ocimus was killed in a gladiatorial fight that Basil started to grow. In India it has been used for centuries as a condiment. Basil is thought of as a “Royal” plant. Handy tip! If you want to get rid of ants in your kitchen then a pot of Basil placed on the windowsill should do the trick! Water it sparingly and replace it every few months. Basil is easy to grow from seed, as long as it is in a sunny spot. The seeds can last up to about eight years. As they are so tiny your best bet, if growing from seed, is to start them in flats and cover lightly with soil. When the seedlings are about an inch in height, thin them out so that each plant is roughly two inches apart. Once they have grown and you

want to move them somewhere else, or plant them elsewhere, then they need to be at least three inches tall before you do this so that they have plenty of root growth on them. They should also have two sets of leaves on them already before this is done, so if your plant is tall enough but there are only one set of leaves, wait until the next set also have grown. Move them to a sunny location as mentioned previously, but they do need to have some shade during the hottest time of the day - generally between the hours of 10 and 3 - especially when they are young. They need to be planted 1 foot apart from the other with the rows about 15 inches apart. Basil does not like weeds, so if you want to grow it as a border plant then you will have to remove the weeds as and when they grow. Basil is happiest in light fertile soil that is drier rather than too damp. Once the plants start to meet up with each other then the cultivation may stop. If they are still very young do not place them where it is windy as this can harm them as much as the direct heat of the sun. It can grow between 12-20 inches tall. When it flowers there are generally either little white or lilac (purple basil) flowers, then in turn small black berries will grow and these contain the seeds for the next generation of plant. The best time to pick the leaves is mid-summer when the plants start to flower and the flavour decreases. It is best to pick the larger leaves first. If you do this every few weeks it will encourage the plant to grow more leaves and so on. You can get a second/third crop by cutting the plants right down to 2-3 inches above the ground. Culinary uses for Basil once picked: - It is an herb that can add a subtle flavour to salad dressings, sauces for pasta (including Pesto or tomato) and also soups and stews. It goes really well with garlic. Have fun! Marc Vijverberg

WELCOME TO ZAGRA with Vivalia Travel Pushing out into the Adriatic and basking in one of the world’s most beautiful sunsets, the old town of Zadar in Croatia is almost overflowing with heritage

Pushing out into the Adriatic and basking in one of the world’s most beautiful sunsets, the old town of Zadar in Croatia is almost overflowing with heritage. This small finger of land almost entirely encircled by stone defences and boasts more historic churches than you’ll be able to get through in one trip. Marvel at the Sea Organ: Installed in 2005, the bizarre but immensely popular Sea Organ created by Zadar-educated Nikola Bašić has given a new dimension to the city’s waterfront. As you approach the steps at the tip of the peninsula that contains the town centre, strange noises arise from holes drilled into the marble, linked to 35 organ pipes beneath the waves. These create unworldly sounds randomly dictated by the ebb and flow of the water, an unusually comforting feeling as you lie on the flat stones and sunbathe. Admire Byzantine treasures: Zadar’s jewel in the crown is its unique collection of religious artefacts and Venetian art housed in two floors of the Treasury alongside the Church of St Mary. Known as the Gold and Silver of Zadar, it comprises sumptuous, shining reliquaries containing limbs of sundry saints, icons and crucifixes, all painstakingly decorated and finely carved. These were curated over hundreds of years by Benedictine nuns – the adjoining convent (benediktinkezadar.com) is still in operation. Sip Maraska liqueur: Zadar’s signature drink is advertised all over town, splashes of cherry red embellishing uniform walls and bursting out of billboards. After olives and grapes, maraschino cherries are the third largest crop in the region and they have gone into the commercial production of the sweet-yet-slightly-sour liqueur Maraska since the 1700s. Most cafés and bars will sell it, matured in special oak casks and poured from a particular type of bottle encased in hand-woven reed. Revived in modern times, the liqueur has long been an essential element of sophisticated cocktails such as the Aviation.

Crawl the bars of Stomorica: A narrow street that dog-legs from behind the former Hotel Zagreb on Zadar’s south quay, Stomorica is lined with tiny bars whose furniture is placed outside for nearly 12 months of the year. Certainly, in summer, the pavement action here is hectic until well into the night, a constant hubbub of merriment. Since the sad closure of alternative music spot Kantun, few bars stand out – you won’t be inside any of them to differentiate, only to pop in to use the facilities as the beers keep on coming. You might mingle at busy Kult and hear a few old Stones tunes blasting out of Lotus but specifics will be a blur come the next morning. Sail to Sali: Gateway to the sparsely populated island of Dugi otok, the largest in the archipelago that spreads out from Zadar, Sali is the first port of call for the regular fast boat over. Croatia’s own Long Island, Dugi otok is where to escape the crowds of Zadar in festival season, exploring the salt-water lake and marine life of Telašćica Nature Park, sunbathing on the white pebbles of secluded Saharun Beach and hiking along marked trails dotted spectacular vantage points. Fishing, cycling, climbing and scuba diving are among the many other outdoor activities. St. Donatus’ Church: This early-Byzantine church was built all the way back in the year 800 and remains in a near-perfect state of preservation. Over time St. Donatus’ tall, rounded outline has become a symbol and a source of pride for Zadar, the first building you’ll see on postcards. You don’t have to be an amateur historian to appreciate the primitive beauty of this pre-romanesque building. These days the church is a venue for renaissance music performances, the 27-metre-high walls complementing the sound perfectly. The church was built on the Roman Forum, which you’ll find out about below, and building material from this site were used in its construction.

Mariano Rajoy steps down as president of the Popular Party Former Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who was ousted from power last week in an unprecedented motion of no-confidence vote, has announced that he would be stepping down from his role as president of the conservative Popular Party (PP) and leaving frontline politics. Rajoy took on the presidency in 2003, having been hand-picked by outgoing PP Prime Minister José María Aznar. Since then, he has lost two general elections (2004 and 2008), and won three (2011, 2015 and 2016), spending nearly seven years in power (2011 to 2018). Speaking to his party’s national executive committee in Madrid last Tuesday, a tearful Rajoy began his speech by saying: “I want my first words to be thanks to all of you for the support and the displays of affection.” He continued: “I have felt greatly comforted by your support these last days, which have not been easy for anyone.” He soon turned his attention to Pedro Sánchez, the new Prime Minister of Spain, and the man behind the motion of no-confidence filed against Rajoy in response to a damning court ruling in the so-called Gürtel case, a corruption probe that has plagued the PP for years. “Someone who has never won an election is now Prime Minister of the government,” he said of Sánchez, who has taken power with just 84 seats out of 350 in Congress thanks to the support of other parties including leftwing anti-austerity group Podemos and

pro-Catalan independence groups. “Many of you have suffered a similar situation: you have won elections but you have not been able to govern.” In reference to the support Sánchez garnered in order for his vote to prosper, Rajoy stated that the new prime minister was accompanied by “sectarian proindependence [parties], and populist groups, and that stigma will accompany this government from the first moment of its existence until the end. “The PSOE has squandered its entire legacy to embark on a highly uncertain project, with bad travelling companions: the radical proindependence Catalans and [proindependence Basque nationalist] Bildu, something that has never before happened.” The Sánchez government, he continued, has been born with “extreme weakness,” and with “budgets that we approved and that some of those who supported Mr Sánchez have already tried to veto.” In reference to the Gürtel ruling, which sparked this political crisis, Rajoy referred to the situation as one of “posttruth.” “The PP was not found criminally guilty for Gürtel, nor did the PP government have anything to do with the case, nor was it taken to court nor did it evade its political responsibilities.” The ruling found former PP treasurer Luis Bárcenas guilty of evading more than €11.5 million in taxes between 2000 and 2009, and of taking €1.24 million in bribes in exchange for

facilitating public contract awards to business figures. The three-judge panel also found that the PP as a legal entity benefited financially from Gürtel’s corrupt practices. It was sentenced to pay €245,492. Since the ruling was made public, Rajoy has insisted that the corruption case was something that belonged to the past. Rajoy also pointed to what he considers his government’s achievements in the Spanish economy, stating that “yesterday we saw the best unemployment figures for May in our history, and we are about to achieve the highest level of people signed up to the Social Security system since July 2007.” The view of Spain, he added, “is exactly the opposite to the one when we arrived in government.” After thanking his party colleagues for their “enormous loyalty,” which elicited applause from the attendees, he announced that he would be standing down as president of the PP. “The time has come to bring this journey to an end. “I have had the privilege of being your president for 14 years, the best of my political life,” he continued. “I want to thank you for your support and help…

in all circumstances, when we were celebrating successes and when we were facing adversity.” He added that he would continue to be a member of the party and that an extraordinary PP congress would be called to elect a new leader.

Power struggle The abrupt exit of Rajoy from the Popular Party (PP) leadership has opened an internal battle within the conservative group. In the frame to replace him are the current regional premier of Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, outgoing Defense Minister María Dolores de Cospedal, outgoing Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, current Congressional speak Ana Pastor and outgoing Health Minister Alfonso Alonso. For now, Cospedal will remain in her role as general secretary of the PP, something that leaves her in a position of strength for the leadership battle. Weakened, however, is Santamaría, who has been left with simply her role as a deputy in Congress, and as such lacking any territorial influence or a platform from which she could campaign as a candidate.

Call to rescind contract for Orihuela Costa municipal Sports Centre Political party Cambiemos Orihuela has proposed to the PP-C’s council that the contract to manage the Orihuela Costa Municipal Sports Centre (CDM) should be checked because the company managing it has “repeatedly failed” to fulfil the conditions since it took over in 2010. Cambiemos Councillor Javier Gracia suggested the service should be “rescued” on behalf of the public from this company who were awarded control until the year 2022, with a possibility to extend this until 2030. Gracia said one of the contract’s conditions was that the company build a modern gym “but so far it has not even laid the first stone”. He indicated that because of the company’s failures, municipal technicians have not been able to approve payment of many of its invoices, forcing it to cancel some of its activities due to lack of funds. He reminded the contract not only gives the company the right to manage the centre but also to be paid €2.3 million by the Town Hall over 12 years (20102022). At the same time the CDM charges the highest prices in the area, as Cambiemos have complained several times before. “Residents say it is cheaper to travel to Pilar de la Horadada to play sport than go to the CDM,” said Gracia.

Salamanca dam used Modelling contract in Schwarznegger's for sexiest police 'Terminator 6' officer

A dam in the province of Salamanca which has already been on an Oscar-winning production is about to 'travel' to Hollywood again – this time, in a scene in Arnold Schwarznegger's Terminator 6. The ravine in Aldeadávila which houses a lock owned by electricity board Iberdrola for producing hydraulic energy, part of the river Duero and in the middle of a nature reserve, will see around 200 cast and crew members descend on it, of whom around 20 are from Aldeadávila and will be working as extras or taken on for a few days to work behind the scenes. Some of Iberdrola's hydraulic power station staff on the site will be among the extras. A dramatic series of scenes against a dramatic backdrop, the part of the latest in the Terminator series shot in the dam will involve high-speed cameras and drones. It is now 26 years since the Terminator 2 was thrust into the unusual situation of being a sequel more famous and popular than the original production, hurling Schwarznegger into the global spotlight and adding expressions like

“I'll be back,” and “Hasta la vista, baby,” to common speak. Since then, Schwarznegger has been governor of the State of California, but he is due back in his leathers, 'fleshing' out the molten-metal-cored mechanical hero, under the auspices of director James Cameron. For the Aldeadávila canyon – 140 metres high, 250 metres wide and able to hold up to 115 cubic hectometres of water in a 368-hectare (909-acre) space, the equivalent of nearly 97 football stadia – all this is old hat, however. As well as the Spanish film La Cabina ('The Cabin'), the Salamanca dam was one of the locations for the classical screen adaptation of Boris Pasternak's Russian Revolution novel Doctor Zhivago, starring Omar Sharif as Yuri Zhivago and Julie Christie as Larissa, which won five Oscars and five Golden Globes. When not gracing the silver screen, the Aldeadávila dam operates as one of Spain's largest electricity generators, creating over 10 percent of the country's hydraulic energy – enough to fuel a quarter of a million homes – whose mere presence and use reduce annual CO2 emissions by 1.3 million tonnes.

A Guardia Civil officer described as 'Spain's handsomest policeman' has signed up with a modelling agency in a somewhat unique career combination. Jorge Pérez Díez, 35, married with two children, was just another anonymous military-trained police and traffic officer in Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia province, Castilla y León) until April when the force used his picture in a tweet. Without naming him, the account @guardiacivil posted Jorge's photo in full police combat gear with the caption: “Even if you see us in uniform on the outside, on the inside we're no different to you. We work for your freedom and safety. If you need us, call 062.” In the last month and a half, the tweet has attracted 12,217 likes, 4,719 comments and 2,237 retweets – most of them enthusing about how 'sexy' he was. And in a curious flip-side to the story of Jeremy Meeks – the USA's 'sexiest fugitive' whose 'wanted' picture attracted thousands of compliments, a modelling contract and a wedding to the heiress of the Top Shop empire – Jorge is the Spanish law enforcerturned-model to the United States criminal version. Jorge's tweet attracted the attention of the prestigious modelling agency Sight, in Barcelona, and the Guardia

Civil officer has now signed up with them. But conscious of the transient nature of modelling work and the possible initial insecurity as the agency finds him jobs, Jorge intends to carry on in the police force for the moment and pose for the camera outside of his shift hours. CEO of Sight, Eduardo Sayas, says Jorge's photo was 'a good profile' which 'gives a positive image of the security industry' and 'would be suitable especially for Spanish clients'. “He came here to Barcelona and didn't hesitate. He's very willing and he's a delight,” Sayas reveals. Already next week, Jorge has two jobs – one on a catwalk, and another in a magazine. As for his vital statistics, Jorge is 1.89 metres (6'3”) tall, very muscular with dark brown hair and a beard, lightly tanned and takes a shoe size 43 (UK size 10).

New coat of arms for Orihuela The Mayor of Orihuela, Emilio Bascuñana, and the Councillor for Festivities Mariola Rocamora, have announced that the design of the new coat of arms for the city "remains on the table as it does not have the unanimity of the municipal spokespeople after the meeting held this morning." Therefore, its plenary approval is pending "until reaching a consensus that consists of the unanimous support of all involved in this sensitive issue that is our hallmark". The Mayor, who was also accompanied by the councillor for Historical Heritage, Rafael Almagro, the chronicler of the city, Antonio Luis Galiano and the municipal archaeologist, Emilio Diz, recalled that the purpose of this procedure, which was started by the previous Legislature, "is to ensure that Orihuela has a coat of arms that is official and that complies with the regulations, since the current one does not comply with certain of the aspects required". The Mayor explained that: “As there is no current consensus we will return to this issue later, counting on the contributions of experts in heraldry, as well as with new formulas for citizen participation, so that the Oriolan people feel part of this decision.” Once a design for the new coat of arms for Orihuela is agreed the design will then be elevated to Plenary meeting.

Selling your Spanish home? Rebecca Serwotka Your favourite local property expert, of Inmobiliaria Real Estate Agents in Ciudad Quesada & published author of “Moving Forward – 25 Essential Rules For Buying & Selling Real Estate Without Going Crazy.” Request your FREE copy today! PLEASE ENJOY AN EXCERPT FROM OUR BOOK – MOVING FORWARD: No matter where you are in life, or what neighbourhood you live in, your home is very likely one of your largest investments. You’ll care for it, invest in décor, furnishings and upgrades, and by the time you’re ready to sell it you will have had many different experiences inside those walls: birthdays, love, family gatherings and dinners. The home becomes more than just a house, it becomes the place where life existed, flourished, and grew. It’s the place families were strengthened and children raised, the place where infants were sung to in the night. By the time you sell your home, it has become a place where memories dwell, and much more than a house. So how will you navigate all the decisions that need to be made when it’s time to part with your home? Choosing the right Real Estate professional is key. Homeowners and Agents should have a unified goal in mind when a property goes up for sale, and that goal is to get the home sold in the least amount of time and netting the largest amount of money. But it’s also important to find someone who works well with the entire family, someone who can navigate the process and build relationships with other agents as well. A valuable team member. When the sale of your home remains faithful to this principle, the transaction has a happy ending. The seller/agent relationship is

established that is mutually beneficial. Everyone wins. So why, then, do some homeowners lose? Why do houses sit on the market for years, or sell under value? Why do deals tank at the last minute due to miscommunication or contractual error? Real Estate is a business, just like anything else. And choosing the right business partner is key. Your home sale (and the purchase of another) will hinge on the success of your Real Estate professional and his or her business acumen and communication skills. A home sale is not simply about whether the home looks great or not, it’s about a host of other decisions and factors. Your home sale will go smoothly if the Agent has done her or his homework, asked the right questions, and prepared the buyer and /or seller appropriately. In other sales industries, a salesperson would have several customer interactions via telephone or face-to-face, conduct indepth discovery questions to fully understand expectations and motivations. However, in a typical Real Estate transaction, you may have one or two meetings before a listing is awarded to someone. That isn’t much time to understand someone’s business expertise. The truth is, most homeowners make their decision to choose a Real Estate agent based on likability. But you wouldn’t choose a banker or a surgeon on personality alone, because it’s really about much more than that. Selling your biggest investment will involve skill For more information and guidance on buying and selling, please contact us and we will send you our FREE e-book or log on to: www.homes4u.es/new-kindle-e-book to request the link.

Minimum wage to rise and labour reforms rebuilt Spain´s minimum wage could be about to go up within the next week, to €1,000 a month over 14 monthly payments, based upon a double wage slip at Christmas and in August. This would mean an annual salary of €14,000 – a monthly gross pay of €1,166.67, or €1,004.50 after tax, a few céntimos less for temporary workers, based upon the current tax-free threshold of €12,000. This is based upon a full-time, 40-hour-a-week job, and responds to one of the longest-running claims by unions – although likely to be hit by opposition from companies. The outgoing PP government's idea was to increase the minimum wage from its current €739 over 14 months, or €858.55 over 12 months, to €14,000 a year by 2020. But new president Pedro Sánchez's government wants to do so straight away, and the change could come about even before the planned nationwide protests over low wages next Saturday, 16th June. Unions wanted to see not only a minimum wage of €1,000 a month in 14 monthly payments, but a 3.1 percent annual increase to reflect inflation in addition to any wage rises for productivity. Aside from minimum wage changes – this was just €655 in 2016 and €645 in 2015, having remained the same for many years – there has never been any requirement in law to increase salaries in line with inflation, meaning every employee, 10 years into the same job, was effectively earning half the amount they started on in terms of living costs and spending power. Unions have long insisted that if employees could afford to survive or, better still, spend on non-essentials occasionally, it would improve the economy since businesses selling products and services beyond the

bare basics for living would find their turnover increasing, allowing them to stay open and keeping jobs safe – or even giving them the potential to employ more people. Next, the new minister for work and pensions, Magdalena Valerio, says she intends to completely rehash the PP's labour reform 'immediately', which 'means right now'. The reform was launched on the assumption that jobs were not being created because companies were afraid they would never be able to make employees redundant without proving they were either shutting down or in serious financial difficulty, and would be stung for massive redundancy payments – 33 days' wages per year worked, or 45 days if they were at all unsure of the legality of the redundancy. Although reducing the legal minimum payout to 20 days' wages per year worked and allowing companies to fire or lay off employees for any reason meant smaller businesses struggling financially were able to avoid closure by cutting staff numbers, protecting at least some remaining jobs, alleviating the pressure for honest and ethical firms, it has also opened the door to widespread abuse leading to job insecurity and a temporary contract culture. Also, given the high number of family-run businesses in Spain where employees tend to be relatives, the labour reform was redundant from the start in their case. It has also proven that the cost and red tape surrounding making staff redundant was not the main barrier to job creation, given that, although unemployment has fallen drastically, at any one time the vast majority – between 90% and 99%, depending upon season and location – of new jobs are short-term

temporary contracts only. Sra Valerio's idea is to 'at least' axe the 'most negative' aspects of the reform in order to create a longterm employee culture once again and wipe out inwork poverty, which remains widespread. Anecdotal evidence points to the fact that the majority of food-bank users are not long-term unemployed, but actually full-time workers who cannot survive on their wages.

Unions Another feature of the labour reform has meant a loss of negotiating power for unions, who provided necessary protection in the automatic power imbalance which exists by default in any job market. Each sector in Spain is covered by a collective agreement, which are periodically renewed and the terms of which were always required to be negotiated between unions and employers, ensuring that the latter were not forced into concessions that would ruin them when they were simply trying to do their best by their staff and keep their business alive, but preventing unscrupulous bosses from exploiting workers. With these powers dramatically reduced, the imbalance has strengthened since the introduction of the reform, and minister Valerio wants to redress it straight away. To work out the best ways of doing so as fairly as possible, she has called an emergency meeting between Spain's main unions, the Labourers' Commissions (CCOO) and General Workers' Union (UGT) and the nationwide associations representing businesses – the CEOE, which covers larger corporations, and the CEPYME, which acts for small and medium-sized enterprises.

‘If it wasn’t for Help at Machu Picchu climb for Rojales Home... I would be dead' horse sanctuary “If it wasn’t for the care, help and support from the charity Help at Home Costa Blanca I would be dead now. There is no doubt they saved my life.” These are the words from Martin, 62, who lives in Quesada. Martin hit rock bottom after his wife, Denise, died in

Martin, seated, with the Help at Home Costa Blanca Quesada branch volunteers 2015, and a whole chapter of events afterwards dragged him further and further towards taking his own life. Thankfully a friend told Martin of the charity and urged him to get in touch – and bit by bit his life began to turn a corner. A support team was set up helping Martin through one crisis after another, and this month Martin went to the monthly meeting of volunteers from the Quesada branch to personally thank them, and particularly the three volunteers Steve and Margaret Jones and Tony Popplewell who were his main carers. Martin (we’re not giving his surname or address to preserve his identity) and his wife ran a pub/restaurant in Derby and decided to emigrate to Spain to enjoy an early retirement. All was fine for the couple until Denise fell ill with septicemia. She died on New Year’s Day. But tragedy did not end there. Five months later Martin lost his pet dog, Sandy, and then his best mate died five months after that and finally his father, who lived in Canada, died. If all this wasn’t enough, Martin was involved in a head-on car crash in April, 2016, and suffered crushed legs. He had to be cut out of the vehicle because the engine has been pushed back into the cab, and spent six days in hospital with months of recuperation. Then, in June last year he suffered a stroke and was hospitalised again, this time for eight days, and although it did not affect mobility, it resulted in his losing much of the sight in his eyes for a time. In January this year he suffered a fall, breaking his wrist. While in hospital doctors found he had a thinning of an artery and he would need a stent. They tried to insert it through his groin, but found another blockage and he has had another operation to insert the stent through his neck. Luckily Martin’s medical problems were covered through the health care system.

As well as one medical problem after another and the loss of his wife, pet dog, friend and father, he also faced a severe financial problem, caused by an insurance company he thought he was covered by. When he applied for settlement from the insurance on the life of his wife, the company kept stalling, claiming that she had an on-going medical condition which precluded settlement. Months of legal argument followed but without success. He decided to put his house on the market so he could pay on-going bills, but then discovered his passport had expired, which stopped him selling, and he hadn’t the money to pay for a renewal. This is where Help at Home came to his aid. They were already taking Martin here there and everywhere - to the hospital, doctors, doing his shopping and sorting out other day to day things. But then the charity paid for the passport renewal and postage costs and the charity’s solicitor put pressure on the insurance company and another solicitor, and finally a settlement was reached, giving Martin a healthy settlement and financial security - after three years of anguish. It meant he no longer needed to sell his house. Martin said: “There were so many things going wrong, one after the other. Thank goodness Help at Home were there. They sorted things out and finally I was able to see light at the end of the tunnel.” Martin now wants to give something back to society. He said: “I thought I had friends but when the chips were down some friends didn’t want to know. They all deserted me. “Also the gossip and rumours did not help me. After my head-on smash some people said I tried to commit suicide or I had alcohol in my blood, which were both not true just malicious gossip.” He added: “Thank goodness there are people in this world like the ones who give up their time voluntarily to help others. Without them this world would be a terrible place. “I have got my strength and my health back. I need to go to the dentist to sort my teeth out, but I now want to work for Help at Home so I can give something back and help people less fortunate than me. Perhaps I could do some painting and decorating, or some gardening.” And now Martin has got a new circle of friends – people who he can really call friends.

Four years ago, expat Elaine Sission visited Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre in Rojales and was blown away by the sight of 90 rescued equines, all happy and well cared for. However, she was shocked by the stories of abuse, starvation and neglect the rescued horses, ponies and donkeys had endured before being rescued by Sue and Rod Weeding, the centre’s cofounders. That same year, Elaine made a pledge to help the horses and ever since she set herself a major personal challenge to raise funds – this year, she’s pledged to complete the difficult Machu Picchu climb in Peru. “I was inspired by the dedication and hard work of Sue and Rod, making a huge difference to the lives of equines and doing everything in their power to rehabilitate them and help them recover from their abusive past,” said Elaine. In 2015, she completed a sky dive; in March 2016, the unstoppable volunteer trained to walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks; and in June 2017, at 60-years-old, she completed the gruelling Tough Mudder endurance event. Elaine also often holds teas, sells cakes, and organises raffles and fashion shows at her local pub to help the horse sanctuary. To this day she has singlehandedly raised more than €4,000 for Easy Horse Care. The sexagenarian again visited the centre in March this year and got the opportunity to meet the centre’s official grandma, a recently rescued old mare

named Beauty. The battered mare needs special shoes to relieve her ruined legs, which inspired Elaine to set herself another challenge and raise more funds for the centre. “In August 2018, I will climb Machu Picchu in Peru. I’ll do the four-day Inca Trail,” said Elaine, who has been training non-stop in the UK. “Knowing the horses will live the rest of their lives in the comfort and safety of the rescue centre makes me very happy.” Donations to Elaine's fundraiser can be made online at: www.easyhorsecare.net/donate/oneoff-donation Elaine’s Machu Picchu donation will be very timely as the centre recently rescued a family of horses (a mother, son, daughter and auntie). The latest addition means that the sanctuary now has to provide for almost 120 equines. “I’ve made Sue and Rod’s motto mine: you can't save the world by saving one horse but you can change the whole world for the horse that you

save,” said Elaine. So far she has helped change the world for 120 horses and counting – and Sue and Rod couldn’t be more grateful. The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre relies entirely on donations to fund its important animal welfare work. Donations of cash or items for the centre’s network of six charity shops across the Alicante province are gratefully welcomed. A pick-up service is available to collect large donated items such as furniture and each shop also offers a delivery service for large items purchased instore. Anyone interested in making a donation, becoming a long-term sponsor, or volunteering at the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre or in the charity shops can call Sue on 652 021 980. The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre, located just outside Rojales at Partido Lo Garriga, 59, opens to the public on the first Sunday of every month between 1pm and 4pm. A free horse tour with centre co-founder Rod Weeding begins at 2pm and refreshments are available in the café. For more details and directions, visit www.easyhorsecare.net. For regular updates, follow on Facebook at @EasyHorseCare.

Fun and fundraising for The Royal British Legion The May meeting of the Hondón Valley Branch saw members wishing they had a larger venue. It was the return, by popular request, of Neil’s Magnificent Auctions. Neil said he was amazed at the number of good quality items donated by members and friends. At the end of the evening the event had raised over 350€ with half going to the Poppy Appeal and the remainder towards the cost for two Branch members to attend the re-enactment of the Great Pilgrimage (90 years on) in August. With new members joining on the evening plus a full house of regulars, it was once again a fun evening. Ian McNeil, Chairman, said: “It was a lot of hard work by Neil and his ‘helpers’ and I would like to thank them and I really appreciate the support of our members and friends in raising such a large

amount in a couple of hours.” Information about the Branch can be

found on the website: www.britishlegion.org.uk/branches/hon don-valley or by emailing the Secretary on hondonvalley.secretary@rbl.community. Our Facebook page also contains

information about past and future events. For Community Support, please ring 676 45 17 80. The British Legion was formed on 15 May 1921, bringing together four national organisations of exServicemen that had established themselves after the First World War. Now, anyone can become a member and it welcomes men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not. A century on from the start of that conflict, we're still helping today's Service men and women, veterans, and their families in almost every aspect of daily life. We also champion Remembrance, safeguarding the memory of those who have given their lives for our freedom through Remembrance education and events.

New Spanish PM sends firm message with Cabinet picks P

edro Sánchez, who became the new prime minister of Spain last week after leading a historic noconfidence vote against Popular Party (PP) politician Mariano Rajoy, has started to name his Cabinet picks. Sánchez’s choices send out a strong message about his position on highprofile issues such as Catalan separatism and gender equality. The new leader’s lineup makes no concessions to the parties who supported Rajoy’s ouster, with all top positions reserved for Socialist Party (PSOE) members or individuals with close ties to it. Opponents of the no-confidence motion have claimed that Sánchez will head a “Frankenstein government” made up of numerous parties with incompatible interests, including the anti-austerity Podemos as well as Basque and Catalan nationalists. Podemos had wanted to see some of its members in government positions. “The Sánchez government would be a lot more solid with Podemos members in it,” said spokeswoman Noelia Vera on Monday. “But it looks like he’s going to choose a weaker government.” The PSOE has 84 seats in the 350-seat lower house, meaning that it will need support to get legislation passed. A joint PSOE-Podemos administration would represent 156 seats. An absolute majority is 176 seats.

Catalonia One of Sánchez’s key appointments is Josep Borrell, a party veteran who will hold the foreign affairs portfolio. Borrell, 71, served as a minister in the 1990s under Felipe González, and he was president of the European Parliament from 2004 to 2007. Borrell, who is Catalan, has also been an active campaigner against the ongoing secession drive in the northeastern Spanish region. He has appeared in international media outlets and published material defending the right of non-separatist Catalans like himself to feel both Catalan and Spanish without feeling discriminated against. During the last election campaign in Catalonia, Borrell made controversial statements about the social fracture caused by the secession drive. “This Christmas, there will be families who will not eat their turrón together, and who will throw their cava glasses at each other’s heads,” he said, in reference to a popular nougat usually eaten during the holidays and Catalan sparkling wine. His appointment sends out a message to Catalan nationalists, but also to the Popular Party (PP) and Ciudadanos, who have suggested that Sánchez may have reached secret deals with separatists in order to secure their support for the no-confidence vote in Congress on Friday. In Catalan separatist circles, news of Borrell’s appointment did not go down well. He was described as someone “from another era” who has contributed to “the escalation of hate” by Carles Puigdemont, the former Catalan premier who was removed by Madrid after leading

a unilateral independence drive last year and is now in Germany fighting extradition to Spain on rebellion charges. “Is this the gesture they had in mind to send us a fraternal message of deescalation?” tweeted Puigdemont, who also scoffed at the moderate sectors in Catalonia who welcomed news of a Socialist administration in Madrid, calling them “apologists, smug and pompous.”

Women’s rights Another high-profile pick is Carmen Calvo, who will simultaneously be his deputy PM and the head of the newly restored Equality Ministry, which was originally created by the Zapatero administration in 2008, then downsized to a Health Ministry department in 2010, at the height of the economic crisis. It had been widely expected that Sánchez would seek a higher profile for equality issues on a year when women’s

rights have risen to the top of the public agenda. Spain held a widely followed “feminist strike” on March 8, Women’s Day, and the ruling in a recent gangrape trial triggered nationwide protests over the treatment of rape victims by the law. Calvo, 60, has prior ministerial experience under José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and she served as deputy speaker in Congress, which gives her insights into the workings of both the executive and legislative branches of government. As an expert in constitutional law, last year Calvo was tasked with negotiating the scope of Article 155 – the part of the Constitution used to temporarily suspend autonomous powers in Catalonia – with the Popular Party. Several women will hold other key portfolios: environment will go to Teresa Ribera, who was director of the Spanish Office for Climate Change between 2004 and 2011. The treasury department goes to María Jesús

Montero, who worked in hospital management before heading the Andalusian treasury department under regional premier Susana Díaz. And public administration will be under the guidance of Meritxell Batet, a law graduate who has taught administrative and constitutional law. The public works ministry will be headed by José Luis Ábalos, the PSOE’s organization secretary. The new ministers are expected to take up their posts on Thursday and hold the first Cabinet meeting on Friday. In the meantime, Sánchez’s own agenda has been packed since Monday, when he met with the president of Ukraine. Petró Poroshenko, in Madrid. And the first minister of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, has already sent Sánchez a letter reminding him of the delicate situation created by Brexit for the British overseas territory, and urging him to start talks over the issue.

An astronaut will be Spain’s new Science Minister The Spanish astronaut Pedro Duque, who has been on two space missions, will be Spain’s new minister of Science, Innovation and Universities. The high-profile appointment is one of four new picks to join the Socialist cabinet of Pedro Sánchez, who became prime minister last week after leading a suc-cessful no-confidence motion against Mariano Rajoy of the Popular Party (PP). Duque is one of the best-known faces in Spanish science. In October 1998 he participated in the Discovery mission, spending nine days in space to lead a series of scientific experiments for the European Space Agency. n October 2003 Duque returned to outer space aboard the Russian shuttle Soyuz, and spent 10 days at the International Space Station. Also on Wednesday, it emerged that the new justice minister will be Dolores Delgado, a veteran attorney at Spain’s High Court (Audiencia Nacional) and a

specialist in jihadism cases. Judge and attorney associations celebrated the appointment, calling her “competent and qualified” for the job, Europa Press reported. One of the issues on her desk will be the fallout from the recent ruling in a gang-rape case known as La Manada, which sparked nationwide protests and calls for an overhaul of sex crime definitions in the criminal code. The labor portfolio will go to Magdalena Valerio, who has experience as head of employment, tourism and justice for the regional government of CastillaLa Mancha. Valerio has made pensions a priority of her department. Isabel Celaá, a former education chief for the Basque government, has been named the new education minister. Although she has yet to define her priorities, Celáa told Europa Press that “a window of opportunity has opened up for the country.”

On Tuesday afternoon, government sources revealed the name of the new economy minister: Nadia Calviño, a lawyer and economist who played a key role in regulating the financial sector following the 2007 debacle and who has made a career for herself at the European Commission in Brussels after more than a decade working for the Spanish economy ministry. Fluent in four languages, since 2014 she has been the European Commission’s Director General of the Budget. Ana Patricia Botín, chair of the Santander Group, tweeted: “At a key moment for the European Union, having Nadia Calviño as our new economy minister is a guarantee that Spain will keep increasing its weight in European institutions. Congratulations Nadia.” Sánchez will officially inform King Felipe VI of his picks later this afternoon. These latest appointments make the Sánchez administration the one with the

most female ministers in modern Spanish democracy. Meanwhile, the PP has asked the new prime minister to take a stand on the Catalan crisis. “Pedro Sánchez will have to clarify as soon as possible what his position is with regard to the first steps by the (Quim) Torra government in Catalonia,” said party official Andrea Levy in statements to esRadio. “We will continue to defend the unity of Spain and upholding the law.” Ciudadanos, the protest party that is leading voting intention polls, reiterated calls for a snap election. “What Mr Sánchez needs to do is give Spaniards their voice back; the twoparty system is afraid of the ballot box,” said the party’s communications secretary, Fernando de Páramo. An astronaut at the helm On November 3, 2016 Duque jokingly tweeted about a story that appeared in

the satirical daily El Mundo Today that made him out to be the minister of foreign affairs. But the joke has turned into reality as Duque now accepts the portfolio of science, innovation and universities. Duque is a vocal supporter of science. “If we keep not investing in our future, this country will sink forever,” he said in 2013, during protests against cuts to science effected by the government of Mariano Rajoy. In a letter published in El Pais in 2012, Duque also defended education as a fundamental investment. The new minister is also an outspoken critic of pseudoscience. “Even if the homeopathy industry manages, through who knows what wiles, to get the European Union and governments to protect it, it doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t work. It doesn’t do anything. At least nobody is forcing us to pay them for that candy that they sell,” he tweeted on 28th April.

Plastic pollutes a piece of paradise in the Canaries At Ámbar beach, the fight is only against the larger pieces of plastic. The battle against micro-plastics – bits of debris less than five millimetres in length – was lost long ago on this spot in the north-eastern end of La Graciosa Island, in the Canary archipelago. At the rate the plastic washes in, it is as much as the volunteer beachcombers can do to pick up the more sizeable eyesores. “Now we’re focusing on the big pieces before they decompose in the sun,” says Alex Rivera, a biologist with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Like Sisyphus damned to push a rock uphill for all eternity, Rivera’s job is never done. For three months out of every year, he and the WWF volunteers tackle the accumulation of waste inside the Chinijo Archipelago Nature Reserve. And every Thursday during those three months, he leaves the park with a huge bag on his back filled mainly with plastic.

A week later, it is as though Rivera and the volunteers had never been here; plastic again is strewn along the shoreline as every day the sea spews more waste into this pocket of paradise. “The plastic comes from further north and also from southern Europe, the north of Africa and even from America, driven here by the currents,” says Rivera, referring to what has become one of the scourges of the 21st century. Our collective use of plastic, which took off in the 1950s, is now flooding areas like Chinijo, which is the Canary Islands’ most significant natural park as well as Europe’s biggest marine reserve. And Ambar beach, due to its location in the northeast of La Graciosa Island, scoops up more than its fair share of the waste. “This is where the planet’s trash ends up,” says Rivera. But it wasn’t always so. The British traveller George Glas referred to this “small sandy bay” in a book on the

Canary Islands published in 1764. “In the north of the uninhabited island of La Graciosa, there’s a small sandy bay, called Ambar beach by the locals” he wrote. “Sometimes you can find a very good type of grey amber here, shaped like a pear.” Grey amber, or ambergris, is a valuable secretion made by a sperm whale’s digestive system, which was wont to wash up on beaches. The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) analysed the rubbish on European beaches in 2016 and concluded that 84 percent was plastic. Another study published in Science in 2015 stated that eight million tons of plastic ends up in our oceans every year. Eventually, the oceans return the plastic to the beaches. “It’s a never-ending battle,” says Rivera. According to a study of Ambar beach headed by Alicia Herrera from the

33

University of Las Palmas, there is an alarming amount of waste smaller than 5 mm. The study highlighted the fact that 52.7 percent of the debris found in the sand was plastic fragments and 35.6 percent was oil products. “It’s one of the beaches that attracts the most rubbish in the Canary Islands due to its orientation,” says Alicia.

Oceans of plastic “Each season, volunteers pick up between 4,500kg and 6,000kg of waste in the park,” says Rivera. Add to this the 20,000kg collected by the National Parks Agency, which owns 98.5 percent of the 2,689 hectares that make up La Graciosa, the rest being two urban enclaves populated year round by 700 residents. As well as marine pollution, a vertiginous rise in tourism is another problem facing the area and the nature reserve was, in fact, established in 1986

as a way of countering this. There is also a degree of poaching affecting a species of bird known as pardela (shearwater). But the plastic waste remains the principle cause for concern. “Instead of grey amber, we now get oil blobs and plastics washing up here,” says Rivera. Plastic waste is, of course, a global phenomenon that the UN is trying to tackle by persuading governments to introduce restrictive measures. Spain has recently passed a decree that will ban the use of free plastic bags in shops – a measure that is already in place in other EU countries. The European Commission, meanwhile, is introducing measures to limit the consumption of non-recyclable plastics. The goal, according to the Commission, is to reduce plastic waste that ends up destroying our oceans and natural beauty spots such as La Graciosa.

The children go wild when the two ladies walk into the hall, and Yvette told the Costa Blanca People, “We do two 45 minute classes, and the smiles on their faces make the exertion and sweat worthwhile!” The fundraising family fun event takes place on 16th June at Lo Crispin Tavern. Yvette explained, “We have live acts from 11am doing 30 minutes each, BigFM will be broadcasting live for us. We have a psychic medium, cake stall, various craft stalls, a massive tombola, raffle with nine meal vouchers to be won amongst other things, guess the teddy’s name, guess the number of sweets in the jar, skittles, pub jenga, pitch and putt, bouncy castle for the little ones – it is going to be a great family day out.”

dwindling. Under the long-term 20212027 budget proposal, the Juncker Commission, named after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, is suggesting cuts of around 6% to common agricultural policy and cohesion policy programs in order to meet the new European priorities. Until now, the cohesion funds had been allocated based on per capita gross domestic product (GDP), but new criteria will apply during the 2021-2027 period. And these new conditions are good news for Spain: Brussels will on Tuesday propose giving Spain €34 billion in funds, a 5 percent rise from earlier EU budgets. Spain continues to be the third-biggest recipient of cohesion funds after Poland and Italy, and this upcoming increase becomes even more significant if current and not constant prices are used: at current prices, Spain would receive €38.8 billion to

Brussels to propose hike in cohesion funds for Spain Brussels is planning to propose a 5 percent increase in structural funds for Spain. A new calculation method used to allocate the funds is proving detrimental to Eastern European countries and favourable to southern ones – including Italy, which is currently mired in an institutional crisis, and Greece, which has been struggling financially for a decade. If the European Commission’s plans prosper, between 2021 and 2027 Spain will benefit from €34 billion in funds (at constant 2018 prices, without factoring in inflation). The EU’s cohesion policy has always been one of the pillars of the European budget. It seeks to reduce economic and social disparities among countries and regions through cohesion funds, rural development aid and the European Social Fund. But together with the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), these funds are

2027, representing a 21 percent increase. Under the new system, per capita GDP will remain the predominant criterion for allocating funds (80 percent), but youth unemployment and educational levels will weigh more in the balance (15 percent), followed by polluting gas emissions (1%) and reception and integration of migrants (3 percent). Spain scores very poorly on youth unemployment and education, which makes it a candidate to receive more funds. Additionally, Brussels is extending the range of candidates who may apply for aid, by adding a “transitional region” category that includes regions whose per capita GDP is between 75 percent and 100 percent of the EU average. This mostly benefits Spain and France, said European sources. These figures are not final, however, and will be subject to the usual disputes among member states.

Summer craft fair in Jávea

There are plenty of reasons to visit the Port of Jávea, for example in the port itself there is the Lonja fish market and the district is full of shops, restaurants and bars, there is a modern church, shaped like a ship and from the 15th of June Javea will have another added attraction – the Javea summer craft fair. This small but exciting and interesting craft market will be housed on the beach front and will be open to the public every evening. This is the sixth year that Amata, the regional craft association, has joined forces with the local shopkeepers to liven up the promenade along the sea front in the Port of Jávea with a craft fair. This is a ‘real’ craft fair, with real craft workers who make the items that they sell and hope to sell what they make, in order to make a living. To endorse this Amata has carefully chosen the slogan "Artesanía de Autor®" which means that what you see is actually made by the man or woman on the stall - no imported goods, nothing made by friends or manufactured in a factory. The stalls may vary from week-toweek but u there will be stalls with leather bags, leather belts, rag dolls, wooden toys and puppets, jewellery,

silver, copper, ceramics, macramé or wrought iron, hand painted designer clothes and also some water colours, paintings and sculptures. Many of the people on the stalls will be working, and so visitors can watch, get them to add a name or a detail or, if you can wait a few days, get them to make something to order. Amata was set up in 1998 and remains true to its original philosophy, which is that only goods made by the people on the stalls can be sold on the craft fairs it organises, which is not a policy held by all craft fairs. That is why more and more discerning customers have come to appreciate this special quality of unique hand-made gifts, crafted by true artisans. Some stalls come for the whole summer, and others for a shorter period, with the stall holder combining a few weeks at the beach with the possibility of earning a living. Therefore, it´s It's a varied display, changing week-by-week so there is always something new. The summer market starts on 15th June and will be there every evening until 2nd September (with the exception of a few days, when the locals celebrate their fiestas). The market opens at 7pm until midnight and the tourist train that runs every hour between the Port and the Arenal beach, stops right at the entrance to the craft fair. For further details ring 639 979 678 (English and Spanish) or look at the photographs from last year's market: www.amata.es/JaveaSum17.html.

Top 10 most-purchased brands in Spain revealed Marketing researchers Kantar Worldpanel have released their 2018 'brand footprint ranking', revealing the top 10 grocery products bought by customers in Spain. Of these, six are Spanish brands, two French, one Mexican and one from the United States – although the jury has long been out whether this, too, was originally created in Spain. It may come as no surprise that the number one brand appearing in Spanish residents' grocery baskets is Coca-Cola, given that it is the most famous on the planet – it boasts 137.6 million 'consumer reach points' (CRPs), defined as how many times an item is purchased, irrespective of how many people buy it and at what frequency. At any one time, 76.1 percent of households in Spain will have at least one product manufactured by Coca-Cola in its fridge or cupboard. Typically associated with its known commercial origins in the USA, a brewery in the inland Valencia-province village of Aielo de Malferit claims to have invented the formula in 1885, and has the handwritten recipe on its premises. In fact, Coca-Cola is the most-purchased brand on the planet, followed by Colgate, for toothpaste, and Maggi for

soups. El Pozo ham and processed meat, packaged in Murcia, is the second-most popular grocery brand in Spain, reaching 130.9 million consumers and found in 78.5 percent of households nationwide. Campofrío Food Group's processed meat products and pizza – and, where available, its new vegetarian and vegan meat substitutes – are present in 74% of Spanish homes and 'reached' by 104.8 million consumers, making it the third-most popular brand in national shopping baskets. Although it would be expected that most shoppers in Spain would choose supermarket ownbrand milk because of the much lower price, the dairy label Asturiana is the fourthmost purchased in the country, reaching 88.9 million consumers and finding its way into 54.6 percent of homes nationally. Pro-biotic Activia yoghurts are the fifthmost purchased grocery item in Spain, being found in 36.2 percent of homes and bought 64.8 million

times by Spanish consumers. The sixth-most purchased brand is the pasta produced by Spanish manufacturers Gallo which, after over 70 years in business, reaches 63.5 million consumers and can be found in the cupboards of 63.9 percent of homes in Spain. In seventh place, Murcia-based juice company Don Simón, famous for its freshly-squeezed Valencia orange juice, has 56.5 million consumer reach points and bought by 52 percent of households in Spain. French multinational Danone has been a firm fixture in Spain for decades, and its own-branded yoghurts appear on the shopping lists of 44.6 percent of Spanish residents – this household name has over 56.4 million consumer reach points, and is the eighth-most purchased brand among Spaniards – even though its sister label, Activia, is higher up the list. Fish and seafood label Pescanova, from the north-western region of Galicia, is present in 24 countries and is the most powerful in Europe with 55.5 million CRPs and found in 63.9 percent of households in Spain, putting it in 9th place. Mexican bread company Bimbo – the largest of its kind in the world with 52.5 million CRPs – is found in 51.8 percent of Spanish homes, and closes the top 10. Of the top 50 most popular brands in Spain, 94 percent are on sale in the country's three largest supermarket chains, Mercadona, Carrefour and Día.

Boost your immunity this Summer With summer just around the corner...albeit still hiding a little, you may have come to the conclusion that your chances of falling ill are now low, but you’d be wrong. Illness can strike at any time if you fail to take proper care of yourself and summer colds can be just as bad if not worse than their winter counterparts. There are many ways that you can give your immune system a bit of a boost, from including certain foods in your diet to enjoying your dog’s company. Don’t let an annoying ailment stop you from living life to the full this summer. Here are some simple ways for you to give your immune system the boost it needs: Do plenty of exercise Exercising is an extremely effective activity to do to prevent a cold, as it can improve your body’s ability to fight infection. The reason for this could be due to an increase in the speed of white blood cells circulating around the body during exercise. Furthermore, partaking in some light exercise while you’re ill can also help you along on the road to recovery. However, you must take note of your body’s response to

physical activity. If you feel like you’re straining yourself too much, then it may be a good idea to stop. Eat mushrooms, garlic and spices Incorporating certain foods into your diet could help keep your immune system in tiptop condition. Herbs such as turmeric, oregano and cayenne have been used for a very long time for their medicinal properties. However, foods such as mushrooms and garlic have also been known to have a positive impact on a person’s wellbeing. According to a study conducted by the University of Florida, eating a cooked shiitake mushroom every day can boost immunity over significant periods of time. Moreover, mushrooms also have antiinflammatory properties. Consuming garlic could also do your health a whole lot of good, as it’s been hailed for centuries for its remedial properties. Have enough sleep As simple as it sounds, not having enough sleep could be the key reason why your health is faltering. Approximately two

thirds of adults around the world aren’t having enough sleep, with the World Health Organisation recommending that the average individual aim for around eight hours a night. Neuroscientists warn that sleep deprivation could put you at risk of illness, ranging from the common cold to more serious afflictions. So, next time you’re tempted to watch one more episode of Breaking Bad on Netflix before hitting the hay, make a mental note to save it for another time and enjoy a restful sleep instead. Enjoy some quality time with your pet While having a pet is undoubtedly incredibly joyous, did you know that it can also be improving your health? In 2013, the American Heart Association published a scientific statement that explained how having a dog can reduce an individual’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, a 2004 study that assessed the effect that petting a dog could have on the immune systems of college students concluded that doing Continued on page 51

Bars & Restaurants Continued from page 50 so could have a beneficial impact on an individual’s immune system and overall health. Keep drinking water With so many different variations of supposed healthboosting beverages available on the market, it can be easy to forget about arguably the most powerful one of all - water. Drinking water can do a whole lot of good for your immune system, as it can help your kidneys flush toxins effectively from the body. However, it’s not just increased consumption of water that can boost your body’s immunity. Taking the plunge by regularly having cold showers can also do you lots of good as doing so can supposedly increase the number of disease-fighting white blood cells in the body. The health benefits of sex According to sexual health experts, people who are sexually active are less like to take sick days from work. A study undertaken by researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania came to the conclusion that students who had sex once or twice a week had greater defences against germs and viruses due to higher levels of certain antibodies. The NHS also states that sex is good for the heart and can help reduce stress.

Eating for immunity As well as garlic, mushrooms and spices there are numerous foods you can eat to help boost your immunity. Citrus Fruits Most people turn to vitamin C after they've caught a cold. That’s because it helps build up your immune system. Vitamin C is thought to increase the production of white blood cells. These are key to fighting infections. Because your body doesn't produce or store it, you need daily vitamin C for continued health. Almost all citrus fruits are high in vitamin C. Red bell peppers If you think citrus fruits have the most vitamin C of any fruit or vegetable, think again. Ounce for ounce, red bell peppers contain twice as much vitamin C as citrus. They’re also a rich source of beta carotene. Besides boosting your immune system, vitamin C may help maintain

healthy skin. Beta carotene helps keep your eyes and skin healthy. Broccoli Broccoli is supercharged with vitamins and minerals. Packed with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as many other antioxidants and fiber, broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables you can put on your table. The key to keeping its power intact is to cook it as little as possible — or better yet, not at all. Ginger Ginger is another ingredient many turn to after getting sick. Ginger may help decrease inflammation, which can help reduce a sore throat and other inflammatory illnesses. Ginger may also help decrease nausea. While it's used in many sweet desserts, ginger packs some heat in the form of gingerol, a relative of capsaicin. Ginger may help decrease chronic pain and may possess cholesterol-lowering properties, according to recent animal research.

I gave him a way out, Obsessive work and he took it colleague I told my husband that I thought our marriage was suffering, and if he wanted to leave, he could. Instead of talking about it, he very quickly agreed our relationship was over, and moved out! I’d only said it so we could address our problems, and hoped we could go to counselling, but he wasn’t interested. He was spending more and more time working, and was secretive with his phone. He didn’t tell me where he was going, and I now think there was someone else and that’s why he left so quickly. I want to file for divorce but I don’t know where he is. We also have three children under 13, and he’s not maintaining them.

Could you speak to his family, friends, or the people he works with? If you proceed with divorce you’ll need to locate him for papers to be served. Alternatively, you could try a Private Investigator. Go and see a Solicitor. They can help with this.

I have been working closely with a work colleague for 2 years. At first I thought we got on well as friends. I started getting concerned about his feelings for me when he sent me flowers at work, whilst he was away on holiday with his wife and two children. There were a few raised eyebrows in the office and comments such as he was thinking of me while away. Since then he has displayed signs of jealousy when I have mentioned I am meeting boyfriends. Now our working relationship is suffering. I really like my job and don’t want to be pushed out.

I think you need to go to HR and tell them your concerns, or if you don’t want to do that, tell your work colleague that unless things improve you will have no choice but to go to HR, and see if that helps. You might be dealing with an obsessive man here, and if you don’t do something things could get worse and you won’t want to work there anymore. Don’t let a situation like this push you out of a job you enjoy.

M

edcare began caring for people in 2005 as a medical clinic. Although a private clinic, Medcare welcomes everybody; holiday makers, non-residents and also works for patients in conjunction with the Spanish health system. Dr Najma Hussain is the reason Medcare exists. After training at Guy’s and St Thomas hospitals and working as a GP, she started the clinic because she saw there was a real need for a British GP. After having worked as a GP for the NHS, Dr Hussain aimed to base her GP surgery on NHS practices and guidelines, and of course, all in English. This means that British patients can access medical care in a language and format that is familiar to them – including screening and preventative

medicine, which many of our patients were missing out on. Over the years, Medcare has seen over 10,000 patients, and many of whom are here today thanks to early intervention after invaluable screenings and/or health checks. Medcare has seen many patients visit for what they thought were routine Health Checks, only to find early signs of serious health issues. Two such patients in just the last couple of months had early signs of prostate cancer and heart disease. Dr Hussain quickly referred these patients to hospital for further tests and treatment and thankfully they are now recovered! Currently, Medcare is offering women the opportunity to have a cervical smear and mammogram at a great promotional price. When booked together, these are just 110 euros (a saving of 100 euros)! If booked separately, the mammogram is just 65 euros and the smear is 55 euros. The cervical smear is performed by Medcare Nurse, Susan McCrossan. Susie trained as a nurse at Dumfries & Galloway College of Nursing & Midwifery, and has specialist qualifications in critical care, diabetes and palliative care. Offering many

nursing services including wound dressing and weight management, Susie is professional and puts nervous patients at ease. As well as Well Women and Well Man Health Checks, Medcare offers all health screenings for bowel cancer, diabetes, heart disease, including blood pressure checks, blood tests, melanoma checks, xrays and more. Also available at Medcare are dental services including implants, aesthetic treatments and cosmetic surgery as well as an Osteopath and a Psychotherapist. If you are in need of a British GP who really understands the health needs of expats, book an appointment with Medcare. Call Medcare on 966 860 258 Monday to Friday 9-5, or email doctors@medcarespain.com

AFA thanks U3A for â‚Ź4000 bus donation Friday 1st June was a very special day for the Torrevieja AFA when they officially took delivery of their brand new minibus to cater for the needs of their patients. The Renault Master minibus was the direct result of fund-raising by many outlets within the Torrevieja regions, Torrevieja U3A being one of the main contributors

with their recent donation of â‚Ź4000 to the AFA organisers. The bus now proudly displays the logos of many the major contributors, including the U3A. The inauguration ceremony was attended by representatives of many of the different groups who watched the ceremony, listened to the thank you

speeches and witnessed the church blessing of the vehicle which, in turn, was followed by the presentation of 'thank you' plaques given to the attendees followed by a small selection of nibbles and soft drinks for all. Torrevieja U3A secretary Jill Edwards accepted the plaque on behalf of the group.

Family calls for help restoring dead son´s car for safety campaign Andri Freyr, from Iceland, died in 2014 from the injuries he sustained after he was thrown from the Inferno ride at the Terra Mitica theme park near Benidorm, he was just 18 years old. In his memory, his father Sveinn Sigfusson, is now restoring Andri’s first and only car to transform it into the vehicle that Andri dreamed of – lime green, with cool rims

and blacked out windows! This is a huge undertaking as the car has stood deteriorating for four years. However, during that time and through his grief Sveinn always had this goal in mind and has collected spare parts for the car including a new exhaust pipe, seats, engine parts and body parts. But he still needs help financing the project and has

opened a funding page to help him raise the 8,200€ he thinks it will cost to make Andri’s dream a reality. Sveinn said: “The car needs all the rust removing, a full re-spray, new brakes and the suspension has to be replaced...and who knows what else we will find once we begin to take it apart. Andri and I were planning to work together to fix the car, but we did not get the chance as he passed away before the work began. I need help with this task as I cannot handle the rust removal and painting of the car, so will need to pay professionals. I can do the rest myself and I want to get the car back to full restoration in memory of Andri. I would like the car to be on the road for what would have been Andri’s 23rd birthday on 2nd April 2019. I hope to use the car in the battle for safety in bouncy castles and fairgrounds in Iceland in the future.” Anyone wishing to find out more information or make a donation can do so at: www.karolinafund.com/project/view/2053

Cyclists advised over responsibilities The DGT has sent a message through their social media platforms trying to reach out to cyclists to be aware of their behaviour and responsibilities on public roads. The aim was to advise cyclists of their responsibilities, but not in a manner that should allow for suspicion other than the facts that these rules are their for the safety and security of all road users, including the cyclists themselves. Although many cyclists do of course abide by the law, there are some who ignore it on a regular basis. In Granada, for example, complaints against to cyclists have doubled in a year. The first points raised are over visibility. Wearing a reflective vest is mandatory during times of poor visibility, and it is advisable at all times. When a cycle is on the road, it is a vehicle just like any other, and the rider must abide by the same laws, including the maximum permitted alcohol level of 0.5 grams per litre in blood or 0.25 milligrams per litre in expelled air. At pedestrian crossings, you must get off the bike to cross. Cyclists are not permitted to ride across pedestrian crossings any more than a car can. It is

also important to remember that the pavement is for pedestrians, unless cycles are expressly permitted. Using headphones or a mobile phone is expressly forbidden when driving a car, but the same also applies when riding a bicycle, the same rules apply remember. We have also compiled a list of another ten of the most popular mistakes that can result in infractions, all punishable by a fine, and here in no particular order When a circular sign notifies cyclists of the presence of a cycle lane, it is mandatory for cycles to use it, not the main carriageway of the road. The only exception being for high powered racing bikes. Bicycles must have both front and rear brakes, and both must be working. As mentioned, the use of headphones connected to music players or other devices is prohibited. You must signal your intention to manoeuvre, and wear a helmet. In the city it is mandatory for children under 16 and it is compulsory for everyone on the roads outside city limits. Any manoeuvre must be signalled in advance and performed in sufficient space.

On roundabouts, cyclists in a group have priority when on the roundabout, provided that the lead cyclist has already entered the roundabout. Lights at the front and rear are mandatory. When on a one-way street, cyclists must always flow in the direction of the traffic A bell is mandatory on a bicycle. In areas where cycling is permitted, pedestrians must be given adequate space and clearance.

Motorway Driving Lessons in the UK From Monday 4 June 2018, learner drivers are able to take driving lessons on motorways in England, Scotland and Wales. They'll need to be accompanied by an approved driving instructor and driving a car with dual controls. The reason for the change it to help to make sure more drivers know how to use motorways safely. Learner drivers will need to be: • accompanied by an approved driving instructor • driving a car fitted with dual controls Any motorways lessons will be voluntary. It will be up to the driving instructor to decide when the learner driver is competent enough for them. The change only applies to learner drivers of cars. Learner motorcyclists won’t be allowed on motorways. Although this change should help prepare drivers for the future, motorway driving isn’t being introduced to the driving test as part of this change. The Highway Code rules on

motorways will be updated. Driving near learner drivers on the motorway As with any vehicle on the motorway, keep a safe distance from a learner driver in front of you. Increase the gap on wet or icy roads, or in fog. You should always be patient with learner drivers. They may not be so skilful at anticipating and responding to

events. Driving instructors can decide if they want to use a driving school rooftop box during motorway lessons, based on its instructions. But the car will need to display L plates on the front and rear if the rooftop box is removed. It will be up to the instructor whether or not they keep their driving school rooftop box on the car.

My British registered car has an expired MOT. Can I get an ITV done in Spain instead? This is a very common question, and also one which has caused some confusion amongst the owners of foreign registered vehicles, but the simple answer to the question is no. The technical inspection certificate for a vehicle is only valid when issued in the country of registration, in the case of this vehicle, the MOT certificate issued in the U.K. If your MOT has expired, you must make arrangements for the vehicle to be transported back to the U.K. for a test to be carried out, remembering that from the moment the MOT expires, you are not able to drive the vehicle on the roads in Spain. Many people have reported taking their foreign registered cars to ITV stations and having an inspection carried out, and certified, so how is this possible? Well, the simple answer is this. You may take any vehicle to an ITV station and the inspectors will indeed conduct a test and issue a report. However, if you look closely at this report, on the top, it states that it is a “voluntary inspection”. In other words, it has no legal standing in Spain. You may be concerned about a fault with your car, or you may just want a mechanic with superior knowledge to check your car for faults, which is why the

inspectors will carry out examinations on any vehicle. But again, the point is that these examinations, on foreign registered vehicles, are voluntary and have no legal standing. So, you may of course take your British registered car to an ITV station, assuming

your MOT is valid when you drive there, and you will be inspected at your request, but this ITV certificate does not, in any way, replace the requirement for the vehicle to return to the UK in order for it to be subject to your mandatory MOT inspection.

NOx emissions rating guide launched Poor air quality is a major issue. Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) is a key contributor to outdoor air pollution. Long-term exposure to high levels of NOx is linked to a range of adverse health outcomes, including respiratory conditions, as well as stroke, ischemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and lung cancer. New research by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) estimates that 11,400 early deaths in Europe each year are linked to ‘excess’ diesel NOx emissions – emissions under real-world driving conditions above legal limits. Vehicles contribute around 50% of urban NOx in major cities such as London and Paris. However, policies to address their contribution are complicated by the huge gaps which exist between the tested and real world values for these emissions. The ‘Dieselgate’ scandal which broke in 2015 provided concrete evidence of the gap between real world vehicle emissions and emissions produced under vehicle compliance tests. This gap had been documented in other ways and at other times, but the deliberate cheat which was inherent in that scandal gave huge prominence to the issue. Wider concerns about the quality of urban air, its impact on the health of millions of people, and the evidence of early deaths and chronic illnesses caused

by vehicle pollutants is the context for urgent action to address this issue. In 2016 The FIA Foundation – which is working to reduce air pollution from vehicles as part of its safe, clean, fair and green mobility agenda -held an expert seminar to plan a response to the Dieselgate emissions scandal. A key conclusion of the discussion which is contained within the report ‘Can we prevent another Dieselgate?’ was: “an independent, global, real-world testing initiative is a necessary, important step towards providing improved consumer information regarding emissions.” The TRUE initiative exists to address this conclusion through collection of real world data on vehicle emissions, research and advocacy. You can check the rating of your vehicle’s emissions here: https://www.trueinitiative.org/

TPGS Venture Forth The mighty TPGS ventured up into bandit country (well those of us who have managed to grasp the intricacies of Google maps did!) and commenced battle at the beautiful Alenda. Unfortunately the greens had been recently hollow tyned so were slow and bobbly! Not that this was reflected in the scoring...... as usual Bob Price came bottom of the pile with a massive 19 pts (I'm told he was actually quite pleased with this improvement!) There were 2 winners of the 2’s pot Roger Webb and small Phil de Lacy. NTP's all receiving a voucher for The Ale House bar well done Captain Dickie McAllen, Deb Rosette, Phil de Lacy, Roger Webb and dodgy Declan Crowley. Best guest went to Gary Harper with 37 pts and the lovely Janice Holtham was the best lady by miles and

miles (what happened Liz Sulky!) Barry Mitchell returned from his LA training camp to come 3rd in the Silver division with 35 pts and Bob Kemp losing out to chirpy Lee Holtham on countback both scoring an impressive 38 pts. Our favourite Scouser Warren O’Harris came 3rd in the Gold division with 37 pts (there were rumours that he'd been found preparing his victory speech) until dodgy Declan Crowley came in 2nd with 39pts and a very popular Tiny Tony Sims smashing it with 41 pts! The handicap cutting machine has gone into overdrive! Our next game is on Friday 22nd June with 52 places already sold out. Please book online for future at www.theplazagolfsociety.com or slip into our Clubhouse The Ale House at Villamartin Plaza.

Sixteen water sports on offer That was the total number of water sporting opportunities on offer on Saturday 9th June as 22 businesses offered their activities for reduced prices. Torrevieja’s nautical experience took place on La Playa de Los Locos and was organised and promoted by the town hall. This is the fifth year that the event has taken place and each year the number of those taking part has grown. Torrevieja is lucky to have three marinas, each with their distinct character. Marina Internacional, Marina Salinas and Real Club Náutico all offer something slightly different to those who enjoy water-based sports and activities. Altogether they provide a total of 2,600 mooring points between them. This is an important business for the finances of the town. It is estimated that water sports bring around four million euros a year to Torrevieja. This is an impressive amount, especially considering that the season, more or less, only lasts for three months a year.

However, one of the main messages of events such as this is that enjoying water sports need not be restricted to the summer season. With the mild climate of Torrevieja, averaging 18 degrees, there are opportunities all year round. On 9th June, those attending had opportunity to see just what is on offer. From 11am participants could make the most of the 50% discount being offered by the water sport operators, to try out new activities or practise some old ones. It was a pity that on this occasion the weather was not as exemplary as it usually is at this time of year. The event had to conclude earlier than the 8pm advertised due to a strong wind. Suzanne O’Connell

Meet Manchester City legends Locals and footie fans alike are being offered the opportunity to meet several former Manchester City players and raise money for charity at an event to be held at the Casino Mediterraneo at Zenia Boulevard. Peter Barnes, Colin Hendry, Asa Hartford, Tommy Booth, Andy Dibble, Dave and Gary Bennett among others will be spending the evening at the Casino from 7pm on 15th June. The former players will be raising money for Sat Animal Rescue and CercAfrica through a special auction with two very desirable lots: four match-day tickets for any game of your choice apart from the Man Utd Vs Man City derby, tickets include food and drinks and a signed shirt from the Premier League Champions. Those attending the event will be able to enjoy a relaxed evening and mix with the former top boys from Manchester City and watch the Spain Vs Portugal match with them whilst enjoying tapas dishes

courtesy of the Casino. In addition to the fundraising auction, the evening will also include a question and answer session with the sporting legends. All of the players have had long and illustrious careers and have many amusing anecdotes about life on and off the pitch, and a few of them will share some

of those stories during the event, promising an enjoyable evening all round. Please remember that formal picture ID is required for entry into the casino.

Football opportunities for the vulnerable Torrevieja football club and the town hall are together offering an opportunity of free places in the football summer camp for children at risk. The offer was announced by the councillor for sport, Víctor Ferrández, in conjunction with the president of Torrevieja football club, Manuel Antonio Ballester. The club will be taking place from 9th to the 14th July and the free places will be available to three children for every 50 children enrolled. Recommendations for those most likely to benefit will be put forward by the social services department. The summer camp is open to children between the ages of 6 and 16 years and aims to transmit the values of the club as well as improving football skills. The activities take place from 8.30am to 8.30pm in the afternoon and there will be five workshops in techniques and tactics, educational activities, talks about nutrition and others related to the use of social media. The cost of attending is €320 per child for non members and €295 for those who are members of Torrevieja football club. The price includes all expenses, breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack as well as entrance to the water park on one of the days. There will also be kits provided for those participating and they will receive a diploma at the end of the course. For more information you can see their webpage www.torreviejacf.com email campusvalencia@torrevieja.com Suzanne O’Connell

Sacked in the morning ■ CHRIS DARWEN chris@costablancapeople.com

Oh,Liverpool. What the Fekir happened this time? I like Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp, I have never hidden this fact from anyone. But they really do need to learn a little bit more about transfer etiquette. You would have thought, after the whole Virgil van Dijk palava that Liverpool might have taken stock, learned a few lessons and vowed never to mess up a major transfer again. Well, they have. What the Reds give their fans with one hand (Fabinho, a cracking piece of business) they take with the other. Nabil Fekir is staying at Olympique Lyon after “transfer

negotiations have not succeeded”. Normally, this would be fine. It happens all the time. The problem was that Fekir had already passed his medical, shaken hands on a contract and performed a few interviews for Liverpool TV, albeit ones that were not released and have probably been deleted. Ah well, Liverpool will no doubt be linked to Thomas Lemar again by the morning. Staying at Anfield in related news, Kenny Dalglish is soon to be Sir Kenny Dalglish. Clearly the Queen and her people have forgotten the fact that Dalglish believed he might be able to recreate the Liverpool glory years by buying Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing and Charlie Adam. I’d strip him of that knighthood straight away.

Peppy G has deemed it necessary to respond to Yaya Toure’s claim that the title-winning manager “has a problem with African players” by calling it, simply, “a lie”. Here’s a shocking idea, Yaya. Maybe Pep just had a problem with you?

Grealish who is the most obvious piece of family silver being taken to market as it turns out Villa might just miss out on Dr Tony’s 5 year plan to be the world’s biggest football club. Spurs are interested at £40m for the Irish international.

It’s been a decent week for fans of Tottenham Hotspur with Real Madrid allegedly calling off the mission to make the Poch their new manager and Harry Kane signing a new, bumper 6-year-deal which can only mean one of two things. Either, this has one doozy of a release fee in there or Harry has accepted that he can be a club cult hero or win trophies in his career - but not both. Harry, there is no shame in being a club cult hero. Just ask Matt Le Tissier.

With a load of Championship level players going on the cheap you would be right to assume that Mike Ashley is keeping tabs, looking to get Rafa a few bargains to keep him chipper over the summer. Top of the list is Jonathan Kodja who, I believe, is a striker.

One player who won’t become a one-club man is Aston Villa’s Jack

I’m sticking in the Championship for a moment longer as it looks like Leeds United’s crazy dream of making Marcelo Bielsa their new manager might get scuppered by Sporting Lisbon. For those who are not too familiar with Bielsa, imagine a

manager crazier than some of your recent owners, multiply the crazy by 6.8 and then you have Bielsa. But boy, would it be fun while it lasted! If they cannot get El Loco, then Leeds will turn to Mick McCarthy which is a bit like a record label trying to sign the Rolling Stones and then turning to Busted when the Stones said no. Oh, and that tournament in Russia gets underway on Thursday. Here’s a hot tip for you. England won’t win it, no matter how good Gareth Southgate is with the press. England won’t win it no matter how good Marcus Rashford looks for England when you compare him to how he plays for Manchester United. England won’t win it, alright? But, if you do want to follow lots and lots of World Cup coverage each day then head over to footballfootball.football (it’s a website) and we have you covered.

Your Week in Sport ■ CHRIS DARWEN chris@costablancapeople.com

Dear ECB (that’s the English Cricket Board in case you were wondering). I can take us prioritising one day cricket over Test cricket in the short term, providing it delivers results. Yes, I can even overlook the shambles of the Winter tour and that performance in the 1st Test against Pakistan. But, and let me be very clear about this, if we lose a game of ODI cricket to Scotland (SCOTLAND!) then some serious questions have to be asked. I don’t know what the actual questions are, I am still in shock and I guess that is what you get paid the big bucks for. But (a) letting Scotland score nearly 400 and (b) not being able to chase whatever they got because, frankly, they are not a cricketing nation, is massively disappointing. And, to make it worse, we play Australia next if they can stop rolling about laughing at us long enough to make it on to the pitch. Yours faithfully, Chris.

That, dear reader, is a copy of the email I fired off to Lords late Sunday night. Honest, I did. What a joke. England actually think they might win next year’s World Cup and they let a Scot get 140 not out against them. I don’t even know his name and I am certainly not going to bother finding out because he will never, ever do anything like that again. That said, does he fancy coming to play for us? Speaking of England snatching defeat from the jaws of easy victory, can we make Test rugby 20 minutes long as of now, please? If we can sneak that new law in retrospectively then that means England won the 1st Test against South Africa in Johannesburg by 24 points to 3. Well done, England. Unfortunately, I think the governing body (and let’s be honest, what do they really know, right?) might decide that 80 minutes is better value for money which means I am at liberty to inform you that South Africa turned that deficit round by half time and went on to win the game 42-39, thanks in no small part to a 5ft 8 scrum half who honestly would not have looked out of place in a late 1980s episode of Neighbours such was his flowing blonde hair. England have now lost 5 Test matches in a row but don’t worry, Eddie Jones thinks they “are right on track, mate”. Tyson Fury was back in the ring for the first time since shocking Wladimir Klitchsko back in 2015. Allow me to indulge you in what actually happened on Saturday night. Round one: Fury pranced around a bit

Round two: Both fighters pranced around a bit Round three: An actual fight broke out, but not in the ring. Oh no, it was in the posh seats. Round four: An actual fight almost threatened to emerge inside the ring Round five: Never happened as Sefer Seferi refused to come out for the 5th What an absolute farce it was. But hey, boxing is more entertaining when Tyson Fury is about so bring it on. Rafael Nadal powered his way to an incredible 11th French Open title, beating Dominic Thiem in straight sets.

To be honest, everyone expected this to happen but there is still something magical about watching one of the finest performers ever on top form, especially when it is on the surface he has owned like no man has owned it before him. Simona Halep of Romania battled back to beat Sloane Stephens in the women’s final, something that will, no doubt, haunt Stephens for the rest of her career as she had Halep beaten. Then, it is probably fair to say, the realisation that she might actually win the French Open dawned on Stephens and that was it, poof, the moment had gone. There was an F1 Grand Prix but after that procession in Monaco I decided to give Formula One a one-race ban from this column. Until next time!

LAS SALINAS PETANCA LEAGUE MIXED TRIPLES The first o the Summer competitions was a mixed triple which was held at El Paraiso Restaurant. With the weather looking set for rain this did not deter the players who all arrived early and ready to play. The Peacocks Petanca club is based here and had a good entry. Carolyn Brinsmead welcomed everybody, and with everyone playing 4 games play got underway. The sun was breaking through causing hasty changes in clothing. With many nationalities competing a good atmosphere was generated. At the end of 4 games, the awards were made to the top six teams. In sixth place was Rojales Thader, with Phyllis Seddon, Laila Lonnqvist, and Colin Jefferson receiving Cava. Home favorites Liz, and Barry Tolson, and Steve Hibbett, they had 3 wins and received bottles of wine. In 4th place was Benny Norgren, Britt and Borge Karlsson from Lakeside Lions, they took home bottles of wine. In third place and

Bronze Medals were the home side from Peacocks Eunice Letts, Val Rowe, and Trevor Kemp, with 3 wins they too had wine and were warmly applauded. The top two teams met in the final game, with Guardamar, missing out on the top place losing by 9-10. The Spanish pair of Fernando Martin and Pascual Rouira and Marlies Tilborgh settled for the Silver Medals, and a bottle of Spirits. The Winners from Rojales Thader were Rolf Lonnqvist from Finland, Norma, and Stuart Parkway, were in great form receiving the Gold Medals, and Spirits. Carolyn congratulated everyone for making this such a good day. A big thank you went to referee Tony Thurlow, who was not overloaded but kept things flowing. To Linda Haymes for organizing today,s competition and the lottery awards, to Paul Harrop, for dealing with the entries, recording the results, and keeping everyone informed.

Last season the Charity the league supported was Alzheimer,s in Torrevieja Linda worked tirelessly raising funds from numerous raffles, finally raising a staggering 1500 e, which was gratefully received at the League Presentation. Today they will again support this charity and Linda proudly announced that today 245 e had been raised with many happy to support this Charity. Roger Seymour

Weather nothing like the forecast With people starting to leave Spain for the summer, the numbers taking part in the SAMM racing on May 27th was reduced to 11competitors. All were looking forward to a good days racing as the forecast was perfect with winds a constant 10 to 12 knots. However this was not to be. In the first race the boats were faced with a very light southerly wind which, as the start sequence gradually counted down, ended up as SE 2-3 knots, not good for the bigger boats. The start was down wind with 6 boats crossing the line. First over was the Sailfish “Mistral” followed closely by the Topaz, Laser Radial, the Gamba “Uno” with the second Gamba “Cuatro” way back. The wind

continued SE rising to 4.9 knots and the race quickly settled down with Topaz leading the way followed by the two Gambas, who changed lead over the 4 laps. The Radial retired with steering problems during the second lap. The wind gradually changed direction to due east and started building in strength and, at the close of the fourth lap, went due S at up to 14 knots. n the conditions the crew on “Mistral” struggling to keep going. The eventual winner on corrected time was the Gamba “Uno” with Kerry, Tim and Dianne on board. As the wind continued to build the second race was cancelled for safety reasons.

San Miguel Golf Society With heavy rain forecast for late afternoon, the concept of “ready golf” garnered new followers on the society’s visit to El Valle. Sadly, tail-end-Charlie members had to play the final few holes in a downpour, much to the delight of their compatriots enjoying a beer from the comfort of the clubhouse’s covered terrace According to most participants, the course was in excellent condition; only a tiny minority complained of slow, woolly, greens (you never hear winners moan, do you?). El Valle is a relatively short course but scoring is difficult due to elevated greens, lots of bunkers and the occasional narrow fairway. It's a track where a booming drive from the tee isn’t always the best option. Just two of the 41? starters managed to break par, captain Tony Smale

hitting a colossal 41 points to be the event’s highest scorer. (Shed a tear for ashen-faced Roger Webb who believed his 38 points had won the day). As winner of the President’s Trophy Round 3, Tony received a golf shirt from Mick Roscoe on behalf of the tourney’s sponsor, Moneycorp The results, by category and in reverse order, were the following: Bronze Category: 4th Bob Eyland (30), 3rd John Bodnar(34), 2nd Brian Butler (34 on CB) and 1st Mick Roscoe (35) Silver Category: 4th Gordon Wilson (33), 3rd Paddy Diskin (35), 2nd Mike Fearnehough (35 on CB), and 1st Roger Webb (38) Gold Category: 4th John Humphreys (33), 3rd Mick Cook (33 on CB), 2nd Eva Petterson (34), and 1st Tony Smale (41) Nearest the pins on the par 3’s

went to Bob Eyland, Mick Cook, John Mellor and Phil De Lacey. Phil’s win was a tight decision over sore loser Hugh Reilly who whined that Phil had paced out the distance of his own ball by long-striding like Monty Python’s Minister of Silly Walks whilst reckoning the distance of Hugh’s ball using a gait normally associated with that of an arthritic Geisha girl. Best guest prize went to Martin Racster. Derek Johnstone won this week’s Abacus prize, a bespoke bottle of wine sponsored by Gordon Wilson. In the lone match play game, Robin Eastman, who was 5 up at one point, narrowly defeated his Viking challenger, Kyree Skarsmoen, by 2 holes.

RODS & REELS

The 3rd round of the Summer Series was fished on the river Segura at Murcia on the 5th June. What a surprise when we arrived at the river to find that the water following the rain at the weekend had been over the tow path under the bridge leaving thick mud behind. To cap it all half way through the match the weir barrier was lowered, which started a sudden surge in the water and when it was closed it caused a tsunami type effect, which ripped up the bottom of the water making it very coloured. This being the cause of seven dry nets and the rest of the weights under two kilos 1st Bill Reade with 1.640kgs fishing the feeder using maggot 2nd Marlene Hutchinson with 1.380kgs fishing the feeder using pellet 3rd Lennie Bolton with 1.240kgs fishing the pole using maggot There are still some vacancies available for membership at the club All details are available on our new website abbeyangling.es or from me on 965328368

Our 8th round match of the Spring Championship was fished on the El Bosquet Complex on the 6th June. The fish have started to colour up the water, but it did not fish to its potential and weights were down. Neil McBirnie drawn on the back channel took the top spot with 18.640kgs, and myself drawn on the next peg managed the second place with 12.120kgs and coming in third was Lennie Bolton with 11.580kgs 1st Neil McBirnie with 18.640kgs fishing the pole using pellet 2nd Terry Screen with 12.120kgs fishing the pole and straight lead using maggot and bread 3rd Lennie Bolton with 11.580kgs fishing the pole using bread and maggot There are still some vacancies at the Club and if anyone is interested in joining please contact Richard Wood on 611451423

La Marina Golf Society Las Ramblas Golf & Social Society After the torrential rain of Wednesday, we were amazed to find the wonderful Las Colinas course in its usual pristine condition. We welcomed 3 new members to the fold, and with a field of 32 players it was our Scottish contingent who provided the winners. The gold award went to new member Gordon Donaldson on count back with 34

points. The silver award with 36 points went to the rejuvenated Gerrard Mcabe. All 4 nearest the pins went to the Scots, namely Jimmy Scott (twice), Jeff Wiszniewski and Gordon Donaldson and the two's pot was shared between Jimmy and Gordon. Our next meeting is at Lo Romero on 21st June playing

for the president's cup, 10.00 start at a cost of 50 euros. List is on the board at the sports centre or contact Alan Craig on a100ac@ yahoo.co.uk.

Hola! Welcome to the first, of hopefully many Las Ramblas golf reports from your new correspondent. Many thanks to my predecessor, Mike Mahoney, for all his hard work in the past. A quick word on the history of our golf society. Las Ramblas golf course opened in 1992 and the society was formed a couple of years later in 1994. In those days the beautiful clubhouse you see today was no more than a wooden shed and was approached via a dirt track! We currently have around sixty playing members (around fifteen of which are ladies). Being a social as well as a golf society we meet for lunch at various restaurants every six weeks or so and hold a number of dinner dances at the clubhouse over the course of the year. We play three times a week and the normal format is a team game on Mondays and Fridays with arguablythe more important individual stableford or medal round on a Wednesday. So a few results for w/c 4th June: Monday saw us playing the best two scores out of four on each hole but with all scores to count on the par threes. With a total of 99 pts yours truly was in the winning team along with John Conway, Marleen Billen and

Hendrick Oldenziel. Mind you it was a close call, not only with the runners up just one point behind but Terry Field driving the green on the par four 5th whilst we were still on it! Wednesday was an individual stableford and on a very high scoring day, our winner, with a tremendous 42 points, was Alan Douglas. Keeping it in the family, his wife, Olga Douglas, was runner up withanexcellent 41 points. In third was Nigel Price on 39 points followed by Reg Akehurst (at the age of 88)!on 38, beating Bryan (Slasher) Neal on countback. Finally, again on countback, with 36 points was

Alan Douglas

Mike Frankish. There were four ‘2s’, with John Collins, Alan Douglas, Rod Doel and Terry Cullen sharing the pot (and presumably a nip from a flask). Friday saw us playing the ‘Waltzer’ or 1-2-3. Teams of four, with one to score on the first, two on the second and three on the next and then repeated. Beating the previous all-time record of 94 points with a fantastic 98 points were Alan Douglas, Bryan Neal, Peter Radcliffe and Allen McClusky. Well done guys. Everyone’s looking forward to next weeks ‘Ryder Cup’ when we have England v Europe. Report to follow! Peter Reffell
