FUTURE PARK OF LAS TERESITAS BEACH COULD BE APPROVED IN THREE MONTHS

S

ANTA Cruz city council has preliminary approved the Special Plan of Las Teresitas.

The document, which will now pass a new period of public information of 45 days, could be definitively approved within a period of three months. “This means one more step has been taken towards the culmination of a project that will allow the complete regeneration of this part of the Santa Cruz coast,” said a council spokesman. The document will now be published in the Official Gazette in a hearing process to the administrations concerned for a period of 45 days. The third deputy mayor and councillor, Carlos Garcinuño, explained that the Special Plan has followed a process of exquisite technical processing, in the opinion of the councillors themselves, “and is perfectly worked from all points of view.”

According to the calculations of the councillor and if there are no inconveniences in the information process that will now be opened, the document can be approved

definitively within three months, “a previous step to elaborate the urbanisation project and commissioning of the work “. The Special Plan of

Management of the Beach Front of Las Teresitas contemplates the realisation in this area of the municipality of an urban park, new and modern parking spaces and the

integral updating of the road network. The beach front will have a large system of public endowments, starting from an urban park and sporting

equipment directly related to the beach itself. This park will occupy an area of approximately 37,000 m2. It is intended to provide the coastal edge with a free space of high environmental and landscape quality, which is functional and compatible with the other intended uses. The main criterion has been to link it to the maximum with the beach, so that they can form a single common space. There will be a coastal walk and urban park of remarkable connectivity, continuity and relationship with the beach. For this purpose it has been chosen to reconfigure the current access road to Las Teresitas, withdrawing it to the north, as close as possible to the slope, but without affecting it. The future park of Las Teresitas will host specific milestones or activities along its entire length. The document has been debated with citizen groups and sectoral organisations of the city since its presentation in August of last year.

“Come to Santa Cruz” to have different themes each month

S

ANTA Cruz is hailing the success of its Christmas campaign, saying it was the best for years with an increase in sales of eight per cent.

The festive celebrations came to a close with the first Sunday opening of 2017,

coinciding with the first weekend of the general sales. The Mayor, Jose Manuel

Bermudez said the weekend also saw around 5,000 cruise passengers pass through the city, “which has also multiplied the economic possibilities of our shops, bars and restaurants.” “Come to Santa Cruz has put the finishing touches on a holiday campaign especially booming in the capital, the best of the last five years, in which we have seen thousands and thousands of people enjoying all our attractions,” said the mayor, who stressed that “the city will continue with initiatives that allow us to maintain or create employment.” The ninth deputy mayor and councillor for economic promotion of the City Council, Alfonso Cabello, highlighted

the magnificent results of public-private collaboration in the commercial and economic dynamism of the capital of Tenerife, “which sets the path for us to advance projects that allow us to continue creating wealth and generating jobs “. He said the commercial sector was especially satisfied

with the results obtained during the campaign of Christmas and the Kings, with an increase of sales of eight per cent, and that in the period of sales, an average expenditure per person of 90 euros is expected . In relation to “Come to Santa Cruz”, he said the next objective of the City Council was to

extend its influence to the population of the north and south of the Island, and not only to that of the metropolitan area. In addition this year each edition of the initiative will be held around a specific theme and the next will be on the occasion of Carnival.

COMMISSION’S BID

Vital roadworks will greatly improve busy route

World Heritage City status moves a step closer for La Orotava

The proposal for the declaration of La Orotava as a World Heritage City is taking further steps to becoming a reality

T G

RANADILLA de Abona council has started work to improve and repave calle de la iglesia de Chimiche, earmarking around 63,000 euros. The Mayor, José Domingo Regalado González; councillor for works, Concepción Cabrera Venero, and transport councillor, Fredi Oramas Chávez, visited the area to supervise the start of work. The action, explains Regalado González, tries to solve the state of deterioration that currently exists on the road which is ;ocated in the heart of the rural nucleus, in addition to responding to an old population demand. He said the road carried a great deal of traffic, not only residents but by being a point of connection for the population and other visitors between the

TF-1 motorway and the upper area of Granadilla de Abona. The works, whose execution period is about three weeks, will basically consist of the asphalting of this road, which includes an extension of 640 metres, from the TF-28 (old road south) to the intersection with calle La Tosquita, The horizontal signalling of the road will also be totally replaced. The municipal officials recommend that users take into account the closure of this part of the road and point out that they are working to meet the deadlines of the work and that it can be concluded with the maximum possible speed.

HE Advisory Commission for the Declaration of La Orotava as World Heritage of Humanity met at the Town Hall to approve the work schedule for 2017.

The next meeting will be Tuesday, February 7th and will approval to the guidelines to draft the official proposal. A professional copywriter team will shape the work being done from the commission itself. In the coming months, the project coordinator will be informed in more detail, while the general coordinator of the advisory commission, Isidoro Sánchez García, along with Fermín García, Raúl González and Zebensui López, will formulate the document that regulates the lines of work. The objective is to have the document and arguments of request ready in the month of June. The hope is that Unesco will put it on its list which would open the way to working on the second phase. The Mayor of La Orotava

Francisco Linares said they were confident La Orotava would become a World Heritage City in the coming years. “This northern town has more than 500 years of history, with peculiarities and specificities that make it a place with unique characteristics in the world. It treasures unique landscape, architectural, ethnographic, historical and paleontological values; a wealth of heritage and biodiversity, from zero to peak Teide,” he said.

He noted that at the last meeting, the spokesmen of the four political groups agreed to support the bid. It was also agreed to hold talks in schools so that young people would understand the application. The Advisory Commission is composed of historians, anthropologists, geographers, ethnographers, philosophers, architects, engineers, teachers and art specialists and interpreters, among others. The declaration of La Orotava as World Heritage would be an international

recognition, which would be added to the one that 70 per cent of its territory with the National Park of the Cañadas del Teide (since 2007) already has. “This declaration would enhance its interest as a cultural tourism resource of the first order, which could generate economic benefits that impact on the socioeconomic development of the municipality and in turn affect the very conservation and revitalisation of the same,” said the Mayor.

Los Abrigos crossing project: better than nothing, says Mayor

T

HE works for the definitive conclusion of the crossing of Los Abrigos will begin in January.

The Mayor, José Domingo Regalado, signed the contract of the reforms that will last two and a half months. Sr. González said it had been one of the objectives of the new group from the outset to see the successful conclusion of the TF-643 project. “Although it is not the option that the new government group would have liked, it is the one that will least harm residents and the users in general, who cannot continue to support this situation of paralysis and abandonment of the main artery of the enclave, with the insecurity and damage to the economic and commercial sector of Los Abrigos that this entails,” he said. He said the government group regrets the delays to which this work has been subjected since December 2015, with the consequences and the strong rejection originated by residents, the population in general and the commercial sector. In this regard, he argues that this modification of the project, for an economic amount of 67,541.41 euros

and a period of execution of two and a half months, is intended to alleviate the current situation in which the road is located. “Although it is not the project we would all like, other solutions would lead to further delays and more insecurity and inconvenience for the population. What is important now is that it be concluded as quickly as possible, and that the company has finally accepted the modified and the conclusion of the work, “ he added. The project to improve the pedestrian safety of the TF-643 road on the Los Abrigos crossing has been planned for more than two years. It was drafted on behalf of the council and Proyma Consultores in the summer of 2014, when it was approved by a local government board for an amount of just over 584,000 euros. In January of 2015 the company TENASFALTOS was awarded for 691,758.76 euros; in January 2016 the local government board agreed to the suspension of the works until approval of the modified project and for more than a year they were paralysed.

registered in employment offices in relation to previous years, with the addition that this decrease is maintained on a regular basis and without accentuating seasonality in the tourism sector. The Mayor, Lope Afonso said the fact that Puerto de la Cruz is able to maintain the positive trend of job creation for such a long period is “the best news we can give our residents.” He positively valued the “encouraging data that reflect the improvement that Puerto is experiencing in the tourism

sector, which remains the engine of economic growth of the municipality and the islands.” “The renovation of the hotel plant, thanks to instruments such as the Modernisation Plan (PMM) developed by the Consortium, new openings in the commercial sector, future projects and, in general, the climate of stability that is breathed in the city, makes us trust that unemployment data will continue to improve gradually,” he added. December closed with a total of 1,247 new contracts. The economic sectors where the largest number of contracts were generated during the month of December are hostelry, with 748 new

contracts; Trade, with 127; Construction, with 23; and finally, the rest of activities that contributes 321 new contracts.

Given this data, the Consortium insists on the need to become aware of the rules of road safety and responsible driving to prevent

these figures from continuing to increase.” “In order to do this, it is not only important to comply with the traffic rules, but also to take into account that it is essential to carry out a proper maintenance of the vehicles themselves in order to reduce, as much as possible, year after year, emergency situations on the road.” The World Health Organisation (WHO) considers traffic accidents as one of the most important public health problems in the world. Every year 1.2 million people die from traffic accidents and 50 million people are injured. It is the leading cause of death in people under 40. The Insular Consortium of Firefighters calls for action against major risk factors, such as avoiding telephone distrac-

tions or conversations with passengers, since safe driving needs a state of total attention. It is also essential not to drink alcohol or drugs, be careful with the consumption of medicines, combat sleep disturbances, check the condition of the car before going on a trip and, fundamentally, respect driving and traffic regulations. On the other hand, there are potentially dangerous secon-

dary risks after an accident, even though there has been no fire in the vehicle involved. Firefighters also have to be alert for the possibility of secondary activation of the airbags, or face hazards arising from the boot or the pyrotechnic activation of safety belt pretensioners, risk of slipping or movement of an unstable ve-hicle, electrical risk and so on.

DRAMATIC INCIDENT

Mayor praises skill of pilot after plane crashlands on beach

RING, DON’T TWEET

ROAD SCHEME

Improved accesses to Guía and Chío

T

HESE were the scenes on a beach in Santa Cruz which led the Mayor of the city to use the word “miracle” and it was a Christmas one at that!

Jose Manuel Bermudez said it was incredible that no-one had been killed in the accident at Las Teresitas which was packed with people enjoying the December sunshine as they sunbathed and swam. The light aircraft had taken off from the north aiport with the intention of flying to Morocco when it developed problems and attempted to turn back. However, it was forced to make an emergency landing on the beach just after 1pm. The pilot of Belgian nationality suffered an abdominal trauma and a broken leg but the passengers, a mother and daughter, got out unharmed. It is understood they were French, with the girl aged around 13. All three were taken to hospital. The Mayor said it was a miracle that no-one had been killed and he praised the skill of the pilot, particularly his decision to land on the wet side of the beach which helped to minimise damage. Tenerife firefighters went to the scene with two engines and an aquatic rescue unit to make sure no parts of the plane had fallen into the sea. The occupants were released after the crew broke through the roof of the aircraft which was removed some five hours later.

GERMAN VICTIM

Puerto tragedy as man pulled from docks

A

74-year-old German man rescued from the docks in Puerto de la Cruz died despite prolonged attempts to save his life.

At one stage, staff from a nearby establishment ran to the scene with a semi-automatic defibrillator in the hope it might help to revive him. The tragedy happened at the fishing pier in the mid-afternoon. The 112 emergency control centre received an alert that an unconscious man had been rescued from the water. Medics, police and staff from a local medical centre went to the beach area and found the victim was in cardiac arrest. The co-ordinating physician with the SUC gave instructions on how to perform resuscitation techniques and these continued with the use of the defibrillator. Medics, a nurse and doctor then took over with advanced procedures for 45 minutes but without success.

T

HE entrance to the centre of Guía de Isora and the town of Chio have a new look thanks to road improvement schemes.

The local council hopes safety will be improved and there will be better circulation of vehicles. One part of the road into Guia was virtually impassable but now has wide access thanks to work at the existing roundabout. Several walls have also been erected, curves have been smoothed and lateral protection barriers have been placed. The access roundabout from the TF-1 motorway has

been decorated with picón of different colours and improved with new landscaping. The entrance to the centre of Chio has also been improved and upgraded, making it less dangerous for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. “We are convinced that the road will be safer for everyone,” said councillor for municipal services Bruno Dominguez.

We also still have almost 200 dogs at the refuge patiently waiting for new homes with some of the dogs having been with us ten years when we first opened. Please do come and visit even if you are unable to adopt a dog of your own then there are plenty of dogs that would enjoy a walk and what a wonderful way to burn off those unwanted kilos after the festive season.

Big thank you We would like to say a very big thank you to Arona and the Luther King College for collaborating with us to make our Christmas event such a huge success. A great day was had by all with the icing on the cake was Father Christmas paying a visit with presents for the children, A great day was had by all and hopefully Christmas came early for a lucky dog or two in finding new homes.

The New Year at K9: Your help needed How You Can Help Us in 2017

Meet Heidi Hi, I’m Heidi. I have been at the refuge for a long time now. I was abandoned there by my previous family over four years ago. I don’t know why. Maybe I grew to big for them. I so want to find my loving, safe and secure forever home soon. My people at K9 say I am such a good dog and they cannot understand why I keep being overlooked. I amtold I have a lovely nature and get on so well with everyone. My people also say I am very clever and I do love to learn new things. That’s specially true when there are tasty treats involved! I share my room at K9 with my best friend, Mendoza. We get on really well and one of our favourite things is to go out for walks together. We love running around off-lead and sniffing and exploring. I always, always, come back when called because I know that is very important if you want to be a good dog. My most favourite thing, though, is just to sit on the rocks and chill and relax with my K9 walkers. I’m six years old now (although you’d never know it) and I appreciate how good it is to just take in the views and shoot the breeze. I get on well with male dogs but can be a little wary of other female dogs. However, if we are given time to get to know each other slowly we get on just fine. Do you have a place in your home and heart for me, please? I promise that, in return, I’ll be a loyal, loving and devoted companion. We would have such fun together. If you would like to meet me, please get in touch with my people at K9 in any of the ways mentioned below.

2016 saw over 150 beautiful dogs arrive at the gates of the refuge. In many different circumstances but never through any fault of their own. Happily, almost the same number have found their new forever family. For all of us at K9 our one wish for 2017 is to see all our beautiful dogs in their own safe and loving forever home. While they wait patiently for that day to come, there are lots of ways you can help make their time at the refuge as happy as possible. Here are just a few:  Our pupsters love their time out of their kennels specially when they have the company of people. Why not visit us any day between 1000 and 1300 and take some of our guys for a walk. They’d love to show you their favourite tracks and sniffing places! It doesn’t matter how much or little time you have, 2 hours or 20 minutes are equally appreciated. Fresh air, exercise, good company – great for the dogs and for you!  Donate or shop at the K9 shop in Alcala main square. We always appreciate donations - hand them in at the shop or at the refuge. Or why not take a visit to the shop? You’re sure to find great bargains and the friendly people there will make you very welcome.  We all know it isn’t always practical to have our own family dog no matter how much we would love to but how about fostering? The refuge environment can be noisy and stressful at times and a small number of our dogs find it hard to settle there. We always need foster homes for these guys until they find their forever families. Depending on the circumstances, the foster period can be for days or months and it makes the world of difference for that one dog. Fostering is very rewarding. Why not consider it? If you would like more information please do get in touch in any of the ways mentioned below.  Remember our car boot sales. Held on the last Sunday of every month at Los Gigantes bus station from 09:00 to 12:30. There are always some great choices and bargains to be had.

Meet Our Dogs We have many dogs - in all shapes and sizes – waiting patiently for their loving, safe and secure forever homes. You can see them all – their stories and pictures – on our website at www.k9tenerife.com Go to “K9 dogs/Dogs waiting for homes”. Why not visit us at K9 Refuge on Calle Chimbesque between

Las Chafiras and Las Zocas any day of the week between 10:00 and 14:00. Alternatively, you can get in touch by telephoning us on 667 638 468 or emailing info@k9tenerife.com You will also find stories of our dogs, their antics and heartwarming re-homings on facebook by following Diary of a K9 Tenerife Dogwalker and also K9 Tenerife.

UR Xmas dinner dance at Taboos on Golf del Sur was an amazing night, raising just over 1000 euros in the process! We would like to thank Jackie and all her staff for looking after us and entertainers James Harper, Pip Brown and Alejandro who got the place on its feet. The party was attended by many of our volunteers, both from the charity shops and the kennels, and it was nice to be able to thank them personally for all their hard work through the year. We also shared a few facts and figures – for example we vaccinated 146 dogs against viruses and diseases such as kennel cough, distemper and rabies; inserted 82 microchips and sterilized 79 dogs. Heartworm is a major problem in this part of the world, and its prevention is not cheap, in 2016 we vaccinated 74 dogs against heartworm at a cost of €3528. Sadly we took in 25 heartworm positive dogs and spent €2148 on curing them. In all we paid our hardworking vets €28,000 last year, and when you consider that they work at heavily discounted rates for us it gives you some idea of the amount of work done. We found forever homes for 52 dogs! This makes us very happy. Please consider making a dog’s life better by giving him a lovely safe home. He will love you forever. We couldn’t do anything without your help, so if you shopped in our charity shops,

if you dropped coins in our collection boxes, or if you bought raffle tickets at one of our benefits we thank you from our hearts. Please, don’t ever stop. An easy way to help is to set up a monthly payment by paypal, via our website www.livearico.com from as little as €3 per month. From all of us here at Live Arico, here’s to a prosperous 2017.

N November 29th our friends enjoyed a coach trip to Las Americas, where once again the weather was kind to us. First stop was the ever popular Scampi’s Restaurant in Vista del Sur. Most of us chose the mouth-watering cod, chips and mushy peas, whilst others chose meat puddings etc. Some people went to different restaurants, and some even ventured into the sea for a swim.

Later we went to Iceland for all our Christmas goodies, and then the weary travellers returned to Puerto de la Cruz having had a wonderful day out. On Tuesday December 13th the Christmas dinner was held at Restaurante Magnolia in La Paz. After an exceptionally good meal, served by José and his very attentive staff, everyone was eyes down for the Grand Christmas Raffle with so many lovely prizes. One of our committee members, Cheryl, had made two gorgeous Christmas cakes to be raffled separately which made over 200 euros for the charity. There was a lovely happy atmosphere with everyone enjoying the festivities. A very sincere thank you to all our members for your support and generosity, it’s greatly appreciated by Helen and her committee, and even more so by the organisations that receive your money to help people in need.

Illegal immigrants found hiding drugs in sand

P

OLICE called to a Lanzarote beach following reports of the arrival of illegal immigrants on a small boat found them digging the sand with their hands. Officers from Teguise were called out at around 8pm and went to the beach of the village of Caleta de Famara. They were told a patera had been spotted with around ten illegal immigrants on board and found the boat stuck on the shore. Police then ran after them on foot across the dunes and saw four of them digging the sand. When they spotted the officers, they also ran away but were caught, together with a young woman who was trying to get clothes out of a back-pack. Five plastic drums sealed with duct tape were discovered and when opened,

were found to contain 75 kilograms of hashish. There was also a plastic box containing a GPS device, a compass, three mobile phones, a phone book and a passport issued by the Kingdom of Morocco. Four individuals were arrested for an alleged drug trafficking offence and 13 in total for being illegal aliens. The Mayor of Teguise, Oswaldo Betancort, congratulated the police “for the work they carr y out continuously for the benefit of citizens.” He also stressed the huge importance of citizen collaboration.

Restoration of César Manrique viewing point and restaurant

EMBLEMATIC ATTRACTION

A

popular viewing point and restaurant which has become an emblematic tourist attraction on La Gomera is to be fully restored.

Restaurante-Mirador de La Peña is the work of the famous artist César Manrique and is catalogued as a property of cultural interest in the monument category. Cabildo president and tourism councillor, Belén Allende, said the property demanded comprehensive improvement and maintenance due to the time that had elapsed since it opened 27 years ago. Financial support has been gained from the Canar y Government via its tourism infrastructure department for interior reforms to the value of 150,000 euros. There will be a complete reform of the kitchen space, including the supply of industrial machinery and utensils, as well as in the restaurant area. The work will include waterproofing, paving repairs, renovation of the lighting and new furniture. Because of the work, Belén Allende explained the tourist centre will be closed to the public for the next month at least “so we would like to apologise in advance to the usual clientele of the viewpoint and our visitors for the setbacks that may cause them.” On June 17th, 1989, César Manrique himself, author of the work, inaugurated the Mirador de La Peña from where it is possible to gain panoramic views over the Valle del Golfo.

Massive 6.5 million euro Social Security frauds uncovered in Canaries

BOGUS COMPANIES

A

GENTS of the National Police have developed an operation against Social Security fraud in the Canary Islands.

In total, 33 companies have been investigated, which would have defrauded more than 6.5 million euros through mechanisms to decapitalise them and conceal their assets. “Those arrested decapitalised debtor companies, transferring the production elements to other new companies using frontmen and bogus,” said a police spokesman. “Among those involved

are the administrators of companies, frontmen and people who collaborated to carry out the fraud.” The investigations began months ago, when several fraudulent companies were detected by the competent agencies in the provinces of Tenerife and Las Palmas. After a detailed study of the documentation provided by the Economic Crime Prevention

Service of the General Treasury of the Social Security and the Provincial Directorates of the General Treasury of the Social Security and of the Labour and Social Security Inspections of the provinces of Las Palmas and Tenerife and analysis of these criminal activities, it was possible to conclude the fraudulent character of the companies studied in this operation. Once confirmed the existence of these irregularities, different operations were coordinated that culminated

with the arrest of 18 people and the investigation of another nine for different types of crime. These included fraudulent insolvencies, crimes against Social Security, improper collections of benefits and falsifying documents. “At the moment, the investigators have clarified a total of eight alleged crimes against Social Security, three of punishable Insolvencies, seven of rustration of the execution/ uprising of goods, three of improper collection of benefits,

and two of documentar y falsehood; having also uncovered a fraud of 6,662,966 euros to the public treasury,” said the police. “The various types of fraudulent assumptions used by those responsible for the companies investigated in the provinces of Las Palmas and Tenerife, which are usually carried out in order to produce the insolvency situation, are mainly the successive creation of mercantile companies.” The investigations have

been carried out by agents of the Social Security Investigation Section of the Central UDEF of the CGPJ, in collaboration with the Provincial Brigades of the Judicial Police of Tenerife and Las Palmas, of the Higher Police Headquarters of the Canary Islands. The Economic Crime Prevention Service of the General Treasury of the Social Security, the Provincial Directorates of the Provincial Laboir and Social Security Inspections and other bodies also collaborated.

Three “secret” children found hiding in house in Gran Canaria

S

OCIAL services officers in the Canaries have been investigating the strange case of three children kept “hidden” in a house in Gran Canaria for most of their lives. On paper, the youngsters, aged eight, seven and one, did not exist, the authorities and police have confirmed. Their births had never been registered, they were not vaccinated, had never attended school or ever visited the doctor. Police found the children in the municipality of Telde and they were immediately taken into care pending further investigations. The investigation began after the Family and Women’s Unit received a tipoff about the possible presence of minors in a house in the district of Jinámar where birth records showed no evidence of their existence. “Officers discovered that they were three siblings whom their family kept hidden in their home, almost without contact with the outside, and that the oldest one, a girl, had a disease that severely hindered her mobility,” said a police

spokesman. At one stage, the family reportedly moved home on purpose after realising they were being investigted by Social Services. However, police managed to find their new address and verified they were no records of the children. “Every time they became ill, it was their mother who administered medication to them,” said the spokesman. The facts were brought to the attention of the Children’s Prosecutor ’s Office of Las Palmas, which ordered that the children be removed from the family home and taken to a children’s centre on the island. In addition, the eightyear-old girl with mobility problems was admitted to a hospital. Police said the mother had only recently given birth to another baby in a hospital in Gran Canaria.

Dramatic rescue as rowers abandon record attempt

ATLANTIC CHALLENGE

EN British rowers attempting to break world records for crossing the Atlantic were dramatically rescued in the Canary Islands.

The intrepid friends were aiming to raise thousands of pounds

for multiple sclerosis sufferers but had to abandon their dream when the crew leader was taken ill and needed emergency treatment. Their SOS signal was picked up by the the Maspalomas Space Station which alerted the emergency services. They were intercepted 93 miles south west of Gran Canaria and each rower was hoisted to safety by the Maritime Rescue helicopter. The Altantic Rowing Attempt in Orca II was aiming to smash several world records, including the fastest ever team of ten, the most

miles covered in 24 hours and the fastest catamaran crossing. Orca II confirmed on Facebook: “Sadly the expedition is over. The crew were evacuated from the boat by helicopter and are all now safe on dry land. “ RAVINE FALL The boat left Gran Canaria on December 14th and was aiming to get to Barbados some 3,000 miles away in less than 30 days. It would have involved rowing non-stop for 24 hours a day, with each crew member getting no more than two hours’ sleep between two hours’ rowing shifts.

The tragedy happend on the afternoon of New Year’s Day at Playa del Inglés in the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana. The 112 emergency control centre received a call about two people being in distress in the water. One of these people, a woman, was rescued by other bathers who were on the beach. Doctors found she had mild hypothermia, so after being assisted and stabilised was transferred by ambulance

to a local health centre. The other person, a man, was rescued by Red Cross workers based on the beach. Once out of the water, and after finding that the bather was in a cardiorespiratory arrest, the rescuers began to practice cardiopulmonary resuscitation until Canary medics arrived on the scene and took over. However, they were unable to revive the man and could only confirm his death. No details were released about their identity.

Surfboarding youngsters have lucky escape

T

WO teenagers had a lucky escape when their surfboards were dragged out to sea in Fuerteventura.

The youngsters, aged 14 and 16, got into trouble off the beach of Morro Jable and were being dragged away by the strong current. Both lost their surfboards because of the force of the waves. The 112 control centre received an emergency call reporting that the two youngsters were in trouble in the sea and were waving their arms for help. Police were very concerned for them due to the bad conditions and the rescue helicopter was alerted. However, a plea was also broadcast for any ships in the area to help. Luckily, a small recreational sailboat “Petra Sartaña” went to their assistance, managed to get to them and to pull them to safety. The two youngsters were found to have suffered no ill effects but were taken to a medical centre for a check-up.

DOUBLE SURPRISE

Honours for two Brits serving the public in Spain

T

WO British residents in Spain were awarded honours by The Queen in the New Year Honours List 2017.

Liz Parry, former Editor of SUR in English, an Englishlanguage newspaper in Southern Spain, and resident in the province of Malaga, has been awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM) for her services to British nationals living in Andalusia. Roger Cooke, latterly President of the British Chamber of Commerce in Spain and resident in Madrid, has been appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to British business in Spain and British-Spanish trade and investment. Having joined the SUR in English team in 1985 as a

collaborator/translator, during her 30 years of service Liz Parry rose through the ranks at the paper, first to Assistant Editor in 1997 and then soon after to Editor. When SUR in English was launched in July 1984, there was no or little reliable information available to British nationals resident in Spain in English. Under Liz’s command, the paper has grown from 3000 copies and 24 pages to 150,000 copies and an average of 72 pages. It subsequently plays an important role in helping British nationals to integrate into Spanish society and avoid some of the potential problems that moving to another country

Bogus doctor carried out illegal circumcisions across Spain BANNED INSTRUMENTS

P

OLICE have arrested a bogus doctor who performed illegal home circumcisions for 150 euros a time across Spain.

They believe the man carried out a series of operations, mostly on babies, despite having no formal qualifications and using banned or out-of-date implements. He even sterilised instruments in a dishwasher! One of the operations led to a three-month-old boy being rushed to hospital in a serious condition after developing complications. The bogus doctor and two helpers were arrested by Spanish police who closed down a clandestine illegal clinic in Murcia. Police said the ringleader was impersonating his former

partner and told parents he had the authority to carry out circumcisions, charging 150 euros a time. “He carried the operations out in Murcia and in other Spanish regions but lacked all academic qualifications,” said a spokesman. One of his collaborators operate on a baby boy who was rushed to intensive care in an unconscious state and suffering from fits. It is believed he was poisoned when the anesthesia used reached a toxic amount. The procedures were carried out mostly in private

homes with the minimum of sterilisation. “Medical instruments were sterilised in dishwashers,” said the police. “There were no pre-op tests and no prior consultations about possible allergies or adverse reactions. If people couldn’t get to the clinic, they would travel to provinces anywhere in Spain, using a mobile stretcher on which to perform the operations.” Medicines and equipment found in the clinic were either out of date or illegal because they were not authorised by Spanish health legislation. The three men are aged between 22 and 45, one of them of Moroccan nationality and the other two Spaniards of Lebanese origin.

might present. An active member of the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) in Spain since 1992, Roger Cooke took on the nonremunerated post of President in April 2012, at the height of the economic crisis. During his Presidency, Roger not only ensured the stability of the operation but revitalised the

Roger Cooke institution, dedicating a significant amount of his personal time to build stronger relationships with external partners, such as the Spanish government and major British companies operating in Spain. Having stepped down as President of the BCC earlier this year, Roger remains

committed to promoting relations between the UK and Spain. He is an active member of the British Hispanic Foundation, an organisation which promotes cultural links between the two countries, and a strong supporter of the British Benevolent Fund, a British charity which supports British nationals in need in Spain.

Youtube drug heist stunt causes panic on Costa del Sol beach POLICE UNIMPRESSED

A

group of pranksters brought terrror to a popular beach on the Costal del Sol, causing panic and mayhem to holidaymakers.

The drug trafficking “heist” involving men brandishing Kalashnikovs which looked so real that the police in Malaga were inundated with calls from frightened witnesses. A video appeared to show at least two narco smugglers on board a speed boat, throwing out sacks of hashish to their accomplices on the beach. Two men in a boat, with their faces covered by hoods, then made their escape, congratulating one another with a high five. The incident, widely seen on the social networks, was in fact a prank, dreamed up by a group of Youtubers. Spanish police say no-one except those involved saw the funny side. “It triggered great alarm on the beach of El Palo in Malaga,” said a spokesman. The Kalashnikov assault rifles turned out to be replicas but looked so real that calls were made to both the police

and the Civil Guard. It prompted a full-scale response from the security forces and Customs officials who brought in a surveillance helicopter. But on arriving at the scene, they found it was all a hoax, masterminded by a well-known French ‘youtuber’, who along with his collaborators, tried to simulate a drug landing for his next video clip. Four people on the speed boat, including the two men, the pilot and the person doing the video recording, were all arrested on suspicion of breach of the peace and causing public alarm. The not-so-impressed Spanish police said the bloggers also used a drone but had no permission to do so. “They had not asked for any kind of permission to record the scene and acted as if everything was real,” the spokesman added.

DANGEROUS GANG

Brits helped to grow marijuana in secret rooms in luxury villas

P

OLICE who raided luxury villas on the Costa del Sol discovered several marijuana plantations hidden in secret rooms.

Twenty-one people, including a number of Brits, were arrested as part of a crackdown on an international drug trafficking gang said to be armed and dangerous. They were operating from the holiday hotspots of Mijas, Marbella and Estepona and had at least eight guns in their possession as they traded in

cocaine and other drugs across Europe. The 21 arrested also include Spanish, French and Iranian suspects. Police said part of their operation involved the cultivation of marijuana in secret rooms within luxury villas, carefully concealed behind cupboards and false doors. Armed officers seized 69,857

euros, 7,855 pounds, five pistols with ammunition in a bedroom, two revolvers, one shotgun, 1,250 marijuana plants, more than 46 kilograms of this drug ready for distribution, 191 grams of cocaine, more than 1,000 doses of anabolic steroids, 70 grams of hashish, 34 gold coins, three gold bullion, gold watches, 17 high-end vehicles, as well as numerous material for cultivation, distribution and sale of the drugs. “The facilities were guarded

with high security measures, not only with video surveillance, but with members of the gang using firearms, who were especially violent, “said a police spokesman. The gang was found to have a number of false police identification plates and frequently used stolen high end cars. It is thought the Brits involved had contacts with a well-known sports name, either an individual or a company, which collaborated with steroid buyers in exchange for money.

LONG INVESTIGATION

Two DAESH women arrested with children in tow

T

WO Spanish members of DAESH were arrested in Turkey when trying to return to Europe.

Both were women and were travelling with their very young children. The two detainees, subject to an International Arrest Warrant applied for by the Guardia Civil, had departed from Ceuta to Syria in 2014, together with their husbands, two high-profile Jihadists responsible for dozens of murders, with the aim of joining up with the terrorist group. Since then, they had been at the heart of the territory controlled by DAESH as members of its rank and file. The complex investigation carried out by the specialists of the Intelligence Service of the Guardia Civil, culminating in the arrest of these two individuals, has been underway for more than two years, during which time the ongoing bilateral cooperation with the Turkish authorities and security forces has been fundamental, as has colla-

boration with various allied intelligence services with which the Guardia Civil has maintained lengthy and intense cooperation. Since 2015, the year in which the Ministry for Home Affairs raised the CounterTerrorism Alert Level to 4, the State law enforcement agencies have arrested a total of 177 Jihadist terrorists. The Ministr y of Home Affairs sends out a reminder that, through the initiative STOP RADICALISMOS, citizens can collaborate through a series of channels open to them so that, in a confidential and secure manner, they can notify the State law enforcement agencies of possible cases of radicalisation in their vicinity through the web page www.stop-radicalismos.es, the mobile phone app for citizens security alerts Alertcops and the free hotline 900 822 066.

COMMONSENSE PROMISED

Spanish people must pull together, says Rajoy as he pledges stability

S

PAIN’S Prime Minister has described 2016 as “a year of uncertainty, of unexpected decisions, of unprecedented events and of political turmoil” but has pledged commonsense and stability for the way ahead.

“We have gone through a long and harmful period under a caretaker government and with political stalemate but it is no less true that we have avoided an even worse outcome and that we have seen pacts and agreements forged recently that have allowed us to rectify a certain part of the damage done and the mistrust that was fuelled by ten months of political paralysis,” said Mariano Rajoy. He said the political uncertainty had not affected the economic recovery thanks to the fact that “the reforms undertaken over recent legislatures have provided for solid and robust growth that we must “This Budget has acted as a maintain in the coming years”, safety net that has protected He also argued that the our economic recovery and approval of the General State job creation process by Budget for 2016, despite the generating confidence against criticism received, “has a backdrop of political unproven to be a prudent, certainty,” he added. effective and responsible On this point, he remarked decision”. that this Budget will continue to offer stability in 2017 until such time as a new one can be approved, which must be “as soon as possible”.

HREE young children, one of them just five years of age, spent at least four days alone in a flat with the corpse of their mother, police have revealed. Their plight was only discovered when the smallest child wandered into a park on Mallorca and told a gardener they had not eaten because their mother was lying in bed and not responding to them. The other two children were aged ten and eleven and were taken to hospital. Health workers have declined to say

what sort of state they were in after their terrifying ordeal.

He also pointed out that, for the first time in seven years, unemployment fell below the 4 million mark, the unemployment rate stands at 18.9% of the active population and youth unemployment has fallen by 14 points. Mariano Rajoy predicted that “the Spanish economy will grow by 3.2% this year; this is the highest level of growth of any of the major European economies and almost double the average in the Eurozone”. He also stressed that “Spain has become an export powerhouse”, with a foreign trade sector which exceeds 33% of the Gross Domestic Product, and that the country can “boast yet another record

in terms of tourism” at the close of 2016. Mariano Rajoy also mentioned the agreements in the fields of education, the fight against corruption and in combating gender-based violence. He also announced that in Februar y a subcommittee will be set up tasked with designing a national justice strategy and another committee to study the consequences of the United Kingdom pulling out of the European Union. In his speech, the President of the Government underlined that “if we are all able to maintain the responsible and constructive attitude we have shown over the last two months, we will be able to guarantee the Spanish people a stable and prosperous future as a result of everyone pulling together”.

Tougher sanctions promised on human trafficking

MODERN SLAVERY

S

PAIN is proposing to step up sanctions against human trafficking after Mariano Rajoy described it as the “21st century reincarnation of slavery”. The Prime Minister was chairing the meeting of the UN Security Council at which a resolution, promoted by Spain, was unanimously adopted, on trafficking in persons in conflict situations. During his speech, he proposed stepping up sanctions, controlling financial flows and protecting and assisting victims. In the debate on “Trafficking in persons in conflict situations”, held by the United Nations Security Council, the President of the Government

pointed out that “people trafficking, in addition to constituting a clear affront to human dignity, represents a threat to international peace and security in conflict situations and in certain contexts of terrorism”. “This is the very reincarnation of slavery in the 21st Century”, he stressed. In his opinion, the victims - the majority of whom are women and children - require an urgent response from the Security Council.

Mariano Rajoy pointed out that “the next five years represent an historic opportunity to place the fight against the worst forms of exploitation at the centre of the UN’s priorities”. In his opinion, major progress has been made in certain areas, but there is still a lot to do. In this regard, he highlighted that last year Spain approved a new Comprehensive Plan to Fight the Trafficking of Human Beings for purposes of Sexual Exploitation and, this year the government has improved coordination between civil organisations and the State law enforcement agencies in this area.

A SPECIAL PLACE

Vibrant and pioneering, Tegueste market continues its huge success

T

HERE’S always something vibrant happeing at the Farmers’ Market in Tegueste which continues to stand out for its exceptional attractions and go-ahead attitude.

The Farmers’ Market and Artisan Tegueste Villa as it is known has 34 stalls in an infrastructure for marketing of local production in the internal market. But it is also a meeting point between producers and consumers to promote food sovereignty and the right of citizens to a healthy diet. Fresh products, fair and competitive prices, quality and a direct link between the producers are all keys to its continued success. This is a must place to visit

in order to browse around the stalls, sample local produce, catch up with friends, enjoy special events, stop for a coffee and generally while away a few very enjoyable hours. The wares they sell can also inspire projects, whether it be cooking with the fresh fruit, vegetables and meat on offer or perhaps taking up a traditional craft yourself. Tegueste really is a ver y special market. It is rural life at its best but brought to the public with 21st century standards and quality. It is very much a pioneer

in the Canary Islands and was the first market to gain the standard of ISO 9001, a major coup. The market works very hard to make sure it is current, lively and a place people want to return to time

and time again. There are special events and campaigns, a firm commitment to promoting local produce and to keeping the visitor bang up to date with everything that is happening. One of its assets is a super

website on which you can read all about its history and see events and promotions coming up (see www.http:// mercadillodetegueste.es/). This website receives thousands of hits, showing just how popular it is. The municipality is rightly proud of its market. It has helped to put local agriculture, produce and craftmanship very much on the map and not only helps farmers and craftspeople survive and prosper, it preserves this way of life as well, with changing times ver y much taken in to consideration. This market is spotlessly clean, beautifully laid out and has won international standards. There is quality assurance for all the produce on sale which comes direct from the consumers. It is fresh and always sold at fair and competitive prices. Members like to describe it as “an extension of the rural world” and it is just that. Every stall you stop at offers something different and you just

want to buy everything, with your brain working overtime with what you could make for that night’s tea or a special gift you could give. The market is open Saturdays and Sundays from 8.00 to 14.00 and is close to the TF13 Punta del Hidalgo-Laguna road behind the station Tgas services, number 6 Asuncionistas Street, near the old town the municipality, facing the house and estate of Zamorano. Its location allows direct access for all people, including the disabled, as it is specially fitted for it. It also has the advantage of having a large parking area. Gastronomy is one of the market’s priorities. Not only does its website feature recipes, there are regular events to showcase certain produce or themes. The market is very much at the centre of Tegueste life and is waiting to provide you with a very warm welcome. www.mercadillodetegueste.es

Just like there are high-end cars or plasma televisions, there are high and low range progressive glasses too. Both with a low-end car and a high-end car we can move, but the high-end car will provide us with more security, sophistication, tranquillity and comfort. Many of us have a friend or a neighbour who has never adapted to using progressive glasses or lenses which might put us off using this type of glasses. A low-range progressive does not mean it does not allow you to see, it means that the transition zones between far and near are not smooth, there are more aberrations in the lens, there is more field limitation. This will require self-learnings and depending on each person will take more or less time. The effect is like looking “through a tunnel.” It is not ideal for demanding people with their vision, dynamic, claustrophobic or impatient. A high-end, personalised, latest generation progressive means that the field of vision is larger, avoiding the need to make head movements and providing greater sharpness and contrast, less aberrations, less distortion, more freedom of movement and more breadth of field ideal for sports or for driving. The team at Visual Center Madhu has been offering “visual solutions” for 11 years and are specialists in progressive glasses, working with Rodenstock and Varilux and offering assurance of adaptation and satisfaction.

Part 3: Guarantee Law What isn’t covered under the legal guarantee?

A Hy five for Kia’s new Niro

M

ORE and more car manufacturers are now producing hybrid models – hardly surprising as this market is expected to reach 700,000 sales a year by 2020. And good news for potential buyers is that the technology on these vehicles is improving all the time. I’ve just been driving the latest example of this - a Kia Niro, the Korean company’s first dedicated and first hybrid of any description in the UK. Built on a new platform – to be used solely for electrified vehicles – fit and finish is of a high quality. The newcomer is a stylish looking crossover/SUV but not for those going off-road as there are no four-wheel versions. With only a small per cent of SUV buyers venturing away from the tarmac this shouldn’t affect the Niro’s popularity. What will tempt economy-conscious motorists into the Kia showrooms for a test drive is the Niro’s fuel efficiency. With the power coming from a 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 44PS electric motor, this combination is capable of achieving combined fuel economy up to 74.3mpg with emissions as low as 88g/km. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox brings swifter and smoother changes than the CVT transmission in some other hybrids. It also incorporates a sports mode to allow drivers to select gears manually. Most of the time the petrol and electric power work together, picking away in silent electric only mode. There is no sudden boost or jolt when the petrol

engine kicks in. This hybrid basically just drives like a normal automatic with the engine sound only rising when you kick down for sharp acceleration. And if you find yourself stuck in slow-moving traffic the electric unit will work on its own again. The Niro moves smartly enough away from the blocks with a zero to 60mph time of 11.1 seconds and offers a top speed of 101mph that is adequate enough to provide smooth cruising at maximum motorway speeds. I liked the crossover ’s high driving position in what is a spacious five-seater with quality interior finish. There’s lots of room in front and rear, and with the batter y placed under the rear seats there’s a goodsized 427-litre boot. You get a smooth, comfortable ride in this model along with decent handling and good road grip on cornering. In testing the Niro to the full I wasn’t expecting to get close to its best fuel economy figures. Yet I still managed to achieve mid-50s mpg. That fell miles short of the record-setting drive from Los Angeles to New York City in December. Kia received a Guinness World Record title for the lowest fuel consumption across the USA from coast to coast (hybrid) when its Niro achieved 76.6mpg for the 3,715.4 miles run – using just 4.1 tanks of fuel (48.5

gallons). The Niro arrived in the UK with a choice of four grades – 1, 2, 3 and First Edition with a plug-in hybrid version following later this year. You get a high level of standard spec on Kia models and the Niro is no exception. Every model has a lane keep assist system, hill-start assist control, cruise control and speed limiter. Entry-model 1 spec includes 16-inch alloy wheels, dual automatic air conditioning, automatic windscreen de-fogging, LED daytime running lights and tail lights, a 3.5-inch TFT supervision cluster, all-round electric windows, electric exterior mirror adjustment, a DAB radio, USB and AUX ports and trip computer. Step up to the test car 2 model and this adds leather-covered steering wheel and gear shifter, black cloth and leather upholstery, roof rails, privacy glass on the rear windows and tailgate, chrome interior and exterior door handles, reversing sensors, an under-floor tray, rain-sensing wipers, and electrically adjus-table, heated and folding door mirrors with LED indicators. Grade 3 brings 18-inch alloy wheels, black leather uphols-ter y, front parking sensors, heated front seats and steering wheel, a power-adjustable driver’s seat plus powered lumbar adjustment on both front seats, stainless steel scuff sill plates, upgraded audio system, larger navigation screen and wireless mobile phone charger. First Edition model is distin-guished by its grey leather trim and white interior inserts, and also a smart key and engine start/ stop button, heated outer rear seats, ventilated front seats and an electric tilting and sliding sunroof on top of its additional active safety features. Prices start at £21,295 rising to £26,995, with the 2 test model costing £22,795. There’s a lot to like in this stylish Niro – top marks to Kia for its impressive first hybrid crossover.

The guarantee law doesn’t exclude any specific components or parts, it only mentions the actual condition of the vehicle as described by the seller to the consumer so relating to a second hand vehicle parts that are worn or damaged and are notified to the seller are never covered, as it is deemed that the consumer knew about them at the time of purchase. As the law doesn’t exclude any specific components or parts, when the law is applied to second hand cars common sense does indeed prevail. Not everything is covered on the car as the vehicle will wear out even under normal use so things will go wrong. For this reason during the guarantee period the seller will only repair primary defects or faults, not faults originated by the tyres, brake pads, brake discs, clutch, liquids, and a long list of other items that erode or wear due to friction or contact, or those that wear through use. The exclusion of repair of the items mentioned above is produced when the necessity to replace said item occurs within a reasonable time period, not when the fault is caused due to premature, irregular or extraordinary wear and that said wear isn’t caused by the consumers driving style. As an example a part that should normally be replaced at 50.000 kilometres, wouldn’t be covered under the guarantee if the need to replace it occurs once the kilometres have been reached, however if the replacement is required at 2.000 kilometres then that would be out of the norm and would be included under the guarantee, only if the replacement isn’t due to the drivers negligence or incorrect use of the vehicle.

In the case of the legal guarantee how does the period of cover work?

Firstly we need to differentiate between the period in which the seller is responsible for the defect, which would be the guarantee period and time period when the faults cause and origin have to be proven. a) During the first six months, when a fault is reported it is the sellers responsibility to prove to the consumer and subsequent government authorities that the fault existed on the vehicle at the time of purchase so would not be covered by the guarantee. This can be done either via the guarantee document issued at the time of sale or if it was an element of the car that the client could not have ignored. b) After six months when a fault is reported it is the consumer’s responsibility to prove to the seller and subsequent government authorities that the fault existed at the time of sale. So to summarize during the first six months it is understood that the fault existed at the time of sale unless proved otherwise and from the seventh month onwards the consumer has to prove the fault existed.

If the vehicle develops a fault what are your rights?

If a fault develops the consumer has the right to a repair or replacement or for a partial refund in price in exchange for the fault not being fixed. However in the case of second hand cars a replacement is NEVER applicable. If the repair is chosen the repair is free for the consumer.

Can the consumer choose where the car is repaired under guarantee?

No as the car is being repaired under guarantee it is the seller´s choice to select the location of the repair. However the seller is never responsible for faults repaired at another garage that the consumer has not notified them of nor is the seller responsible for the cost of the repair of a notified fault if the consumer chooses to repair it at another repairer.

How long does the seller have to repair the vehicle?

A repair under guarantee needs to be carried out in a reasonable time period, which is set at 20 days. If the car is not repaired within the 20 days and the repairer cannot prove that the delay is caused by something beyond their control, e.g. a delay in obtaining a part from a third party, then the consumer has the right to request a partial refund and accept the fault.

Does the consumer have the right to demand a courtesy car in the event of a guarantee repair?

No the law does not obligate the seller to provide the consumer with an alternative means of transportation whilst a repair is taking place.

Can the seller use second hand parts to repair the vehicle?

Yes the seller of a second hand car has the right to repair the fault on the vehicle using a used part; however the law is very clear that in the case of a safety part it has to be new. If the consumer requires a new part to be fitted they would have to pay for the difference in price between the new and the second hand part.

We hope that this has/will help our readers if not now, in the future. We realise this is a very complex issue so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, emma@motorworldtenerife.com.

Don’t underestimate the care of aquarium fish Owning aquarium fish can be rewarding but it’s a big responsibility Goldfish bowls and fashion tanks ‘Decorative’ tanks, which include goldfish bowls, jars or children’s tanks are designed as ornaments without any consideration for animal welfare. The small size is inadequate (fancy goldfish require at least 60 litres of water each) and small volumes don’t allow for a stable environment. There isn’t enough space for an efficient filter, so waste products can’t be removed. The low surface area means that not enough oxygen will be absorbed into the water. Temperature levels can alter rapidly which can cause stress and even death.

Before selecting fish in a shop, consider the following: Tanks should be clean and well maintained, without any dead fish. Tanks should not have cloudy water. Fish should be swimming effortlessly. Watch out for split fins, white spot disease, open sores or underweight

F

ISH aren’t simple creatures to look after - they have very specific needs and require attentive and routine care. If you own or are responsible for pet fish, even on a temporary basis, you’re required under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 to care for them properly.

Goldfish

First bred in China over 4,500 years ago, goldfish were brought to England in the eighteenth century and have remained the most popular of cold water pet fish. A common misconception with goldfish is the age and size they can reach. Lots of people think goldfish live for about five years and generally grow to about 12 cm in length. The fact is they’re known to live for up to 25 years and some can reach over 40 cm!

Freshwater Tropical Fish

Freshwater tropical fish come from tropical areas of the world and there’s no limit to the variety of colours, shapes and behaviours. Different species have different behaviour - for example, some are ‘shoaling fish’, and feel more secure when kept as a group. Others aren’t very social and will fight with

either their own kind or other species.

fish (concave bellies).

Fish species

Feeding - How much, how often?

There are many different breeds of goldfish and different species of tropical fish. Each has different requirements. Understanding the needs Fish can be challenging to keep. They can’t show their feelings as clearly as mammals do and meeting their complex biological, environmental and behavioural needs takes a great deal of preparation, investment, time and care.

Choosing an aquarium

It’s important to make sure you set up the tank for the type of fish you want to keep.

Size

Bigger is better - always aim to provide more than the minimum required. Also bear in mind the eventual size of fish you want to get. Some fish grow very large and are unsuitable as pets. These include catfish such as the red tail, shovelnose and pangasius, plus the giant gourami and pacu. Always research the adult size of any fish you’re intending to buy.

Position

Position your aquarium away from heat sources such as direct sunlight.

Filters

Always make sure you buy the right type of food for your fish (don’t buy your goldfish tropical fish flakes for example). This is because they contain different levels of nutrients. The quantity of food needed will have to be adjusted according to the size and quantity of fish in the tank. Always feed as much as the fish can eat within two to five minutes and don’t overfeed the fish. Also, it’s better to feed two or three times a day rather than just once a day

A well balanced diet It’s important to supplement fish food flakes with other foods for balanced nutrition and enrichment: Goldfish will welcome chopped vegetable matter like peas and spinach. Tropical fish vary in what they’ll eat - frozen then fully thawed fish, crumbled boiled-egg yolk and some lettuce leaf depending on the species. Certain species of pleco need vegetables such as potato, or pieces of wood which they graze on. Invertebrate foods are an excellent supplement for tropical fish and are widely available in frozen packs including daphnia (‘water fleas’) or brine shrimps. Only feed small amounts to goldfish due to the high protein content.

Correct feeding

Filtration is vital for removing waste from the tank. It takes time for beneficial bacteria to grow on the filter sponge which are essential in breaking down fish waste.

Different tropical fish species will need their food presented differently. Middle and bottom-dwelling species will need their food delivered accordingly (quickly sinking food or compressed food ‘tablets’) and nocturnal species, like some catfish, need to be fed last thing at night.

Goldfish will need to be kept within 10-21°C. Most other fish need a tank heater with a thermostat set to the correct temperature for the species.

Holiday care

Temperature

Lighting Artificial lighting is recommended during the day so the fish have a steady light cycle, as they would experience in the wild. Working out tank volume: In order to work out the volume of a tank before buying it, you can use this simple technique: width (cm) x depth (cm) x height (cm) / 1000 For example, a tank measuring 60cm wide by 30cm tall by 30 cm deep has a volume of 54 litres.

If you go away on holiday, it’s vital to have a responsible person to check on the fish and equipment daily. Tropical fish will need daily feeding, and it’s important that whoever feeds them in your absence knows how to feed them and to avoid over-feeding (preparing some meals in advance can be a good idea). It’s actually better to underfeed rather than overfeed because fish are more susceptible to poor water quality than a lack of food. An automatic feeder will release a measured amount of food each day. However, a responsible person should be asked to check the tank daily to ensure the equipment is working.

NEW BROCHURE

Mamma Mía! Walkers invited to tackle storms the beautiful Los Realejos trail Canaries L OS Realejos is encouraging keen walkers to come to the northern municipality to taste its walking trails and discover the delights of its stunning countryside. The local council’s tourism department has presented the first in a series of new brochures promoting its network of paths. The route between Realejo Alto and Chanajiga is featured in 5,000 copies and it is also accessible from the tourism website of losrealejos.travel which provides a translation into English and German. Tourism councillor Carolina Toste said: “It is expected that this work will continue in 2017 with three new routes, so that year by year the puzzle is completed until gathering more than a dozen hiking options in the municipality, which will open an attractive range of promotion aimed at a type of nature-loving

tourist.” The Mayor, Manuel Dominguez said Los Realejos offered unique features which gave it great potential for outdoor sports and hiking and some of the trails were totally suitable for accessibility to all. A brochure referring to the path between San Agustín and Barranco de Ruiz has already been edited, but unfortunately it is currently closed by landslides. Sr. Dominguez said the Los Realejos trails were distinguished by their connectivity with the open commercial areas of the municipality which therefore allowed visitors to get to know its products, services and gastronomy.

The trail between Realejo Alto and Chanajiga approaches the Natural Site of the Forest Crown making a circuit from the La Lora Ravine and cove-ring a distance of 14.9 kilometres. It is rated as high difficulty. It is estimated that it takes around six hours

and a half. The brochure includes an introduction, a brief summary of the flora and fauna of the area, the altitude profile of the trail and the directions of the route step by step divided up to 20 points from the departure and arrival in the plaza of Viera and Clavijo.

REGISTRATION INVITED

M

AMMA Mia! has arrived at the Teatro Pérez Galdós in Gran Canaria with a top cast led by Nina.

On March 26th, 1999, something never before happened in a London theatre. When the curtain fell at the Prince Edward Theatre, the audience of 1600 people continued to sing, dance and beg for more. The “word of mouth” worked quickly and the box office doubled its sales in 24 hours ... the rest is already history. Something similar happened in Spain when MAMMA MIA! premiered on October 10th, 2004 at the Teatro Lope de Vega in Madrid. Nobody imagined what this musical was going to be able to achieve: to be represented continuously for seven sea-

sons (2004-2011) with more than 2,100 performances, that more than two million people would dance in their chair to the sound of ABBA songs and that it would become the musical of greater permanence in the Spanish billboard. Catalina actress and singer Nina leads a magnificent cast of 30 actors and becomes the actress who has played more times in history around the world . The musical opened in Las Palmas on January 6th and continues until January 22nd. Tickets are on sale through the usual channels, including the box office and www.auditorioteatrolaspalmasgc.es

El Rosario to host beekeeping workshop

E

L Rosario is organising a free workshop on the Oksman method of beekeeping on Friday, January 13th, starting at 5.30pm in the council’s exhibition hall in La Esperanza.

The workshop will be taught by the speaker and beekeeper Eduardo Perdomo and needs prior registration as the capacity is limited. Those interested in attending or requesting more information can do so through the email address ecoliente@ayuntamientoelrosario.org or telephone 922 01 01 60 Ext. 1111. During the workshop, the main characteristics of this method devised by the Argentine beekeeper Manuel Oksman will be explained. For more than thirty-five years of activity, he developed and perfected his own way of making his apiary profitable without unnecessary complications. Councillor for the environment, Beatriz Diaz, said the council was keen to support the beekeeping sector of the municipality, both veteran beekeepers and those who have begun to dedicate themselves to beekeeping as a contribution to the family economy and selfconsumption, with the importance it implies for our rural and natural environment. El Rosario was a pioneer in recognising at municipal level support to beekeepers, opening lines of aid to the sector, because of the importance that beekeeping has in the area.

SCORING CHALLENGE

Major coup for Tenerife Bluetrail 2017 as entries invited T

Skyrunner National Series supposes an endorsement to the organisation and an attraction for the runners, as well as a stimulus for all those who are part of the race either as organiser, sponsor or collaborator,” he added. Sports councillor, Cristo Perez, says that being included in the calendar “gives us a media impact and a magnificent promotion.

A great part of the fun of wining and dining in Tenerife is finding somewhere different and it’s well worth a trip out to Santa Ursula to the warm and inviting Donde Mario. Though from the outside you might easily pass by it, the inside is elegant and captivating. Restaurateur Mario Torres surpises us every day with his extensive use of produce in season, and his unbeatable experience with wines and cookery. Just try his Cherne warm salad, a super-healthy Canarian fish soup, or his Lomo de Vaca Morucha. You will be surprised.

Set in a series of old Canary houses, this restaurant is made up of a labyrinth of inter-connecting rooms leading off from the bar area in the centre. The atmosphere is reminiscent of an English country pub with its low ceilings with wooden beams and warm décor. The food is fundamentally Canarian. They grow most of their own produce at their allotment and only use olive oil to cook with. Their ethos is a simple one, only use the best, fresh produce and cook it with thought and care. The menu is described as Picoteo, slightly more than tapas without reaching the full-blown three-course meal status. It’s delicious and affordable.

Restaurante Magnolia has come a long way, starting life as a small intimate restaurant with an outdoor terrace to the finished article we see today, with the terrace now covered and well spaced tables inside. The kitchen is open plan and creates the most wonderful national and international dishes with an extensive menu of fish, shellfish, lamb, steaks, pastas. This venue is always busy and customers are full of praise for the Restaurante Magnolia as one of the finest places to eat on the island. The quality and service certainly stands out and the cost is very reasonable indeed. They are open every day from 13:00 - 16:00 and 19:00 to 23.30.

RESOLUTION TIPS

Stop smoking without putting How to beat on weight

TUMMY TIPS

the bloat

M

OST of us have experienced the feeling of being bloated, when your tummy is stretched, puffy and uncomfortable. It often happens after a big weekend or over a festive season. But for some people, bloating is more than an occasional inconvenience.

If your stomach or tummy often feels bloated, it could be due to excess wind, constipation, swallowing air (from talking while eating etc), food intolerance or irritable bowel syndrome.

Excess wind

Cut down on foods known to cause wind and bloating, such as beans, onions, broccoli, cabbage, sprouts and cauliflower. However, do make sure you still eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Constipation

If you get constipation, take steps to prevent it with a fibrerich diet, drinking lots of fluids and taking regular exercise. Even a 20-30 minute brisk walk four times a week can improve your bowel function.

Swallowing air

Try not to swallow too much air. Don’t talk and eat at the same time, sit down to eat (sitting upright and not slumped over), reduce the amount of fizzy drinks you consume, stop chewing gum and chew with your mouth closed so that you’re not taking in excess air.

Food intolerance

Food intolerance can lead to bloating when your bowel doesn’t empty properly, the food causes gas to be trapped or too much gas is produced as a reaction to the food. The main offenders are wheat or gluten and dairy products. The best approach if you have a food intolerance is to eat less of the culprit food or cut it out completely. Keep a food diary for a couple of weeks, noting everything that you eat and drink and when bloating troubles you most. But don’t get rid of food groups longterm without advice from your GP.

W

ITH New Year resolutions in mind, you may be worried about piling on the pounds when you stop smoking but there are steps you can take to keep weight gain to a minimum. They include taking more exercise, using stop smoking treatments, cautious dieting (it can help reduce weight while you quit but you must be careful not to take too much on at once). On average, people gain 5kg (11lbs) in the year after they stop smoking. There are five main reasons: Smoking speeds up your metabolism so your body burns calories at a faster rate. So, when you stop smoking, you actually need fewer calories. Smoking can suppress your appetite. You may find that food tastes better after you stop smoking and you crave sugary foods. It’s possible to mistake nicotine cravings for feeling hungry, or to eat to distract yourself from them. You may replace the “hand-to-mouth” action of

smoking with snacking.

How can I avoid putting on weight when I quit? Keep your metabolism high by taking regular exercise. Try walking rather than getting the bus or using a lift, start a gym class, or ask your local sports centre about the activities they offer. Combat hunger pangs by keeping a stash of healthy treats to hand. Nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit and veg sticks are ideal. Eat smaller portions of food until your metabolism has stabilised. Remember it takes 20 minutes for you to feel full after eating, so take a break (go for a walk) after your main meal and see if you still feel hungry in half an hour. If so, dip into your healthy treats. Just because food tastes better, it doesn’t mean you need to eat more of it. Remember to chew your food well and savour

each mouthful rather than trying to finish it a quickly as possible. Make sure that you are taking your medicines regularly to help suppress cravings. The less you crave nicotine, the easier it will be to keep focused.

Exercise to avoid gaining weight After you quit smoking, your body burns calories more slowly. Even if you eat no more than when you smoked, you may put on weight – but being more active can help. Regular exercise may prevent about half the weight gain expected after a year of quitting smoking. It burns off calories and reduces cravings for cigarettes. Build up to at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, such as fast walking, swimming or cycling, every week. Moderate-intensity activity means working hard enough to make you breathe more heavily than normal and feel

Leaky gut syndrome

L “

EAKY gut syndrome” doesn’t sound a very nice condition and there is a school of thought that it doesn’t really exist.

Proponents claim that many symptoms and diseases are caused by the immune system reacting to germs, toxins or other large molecules that have been absorbed into the bloodstream via a porous (‘leaky’) bowel. There is little evidence to support this theory and no evidence that so-called ‘treatments’ for ‘leaky gut syndrome’, such as nutritional supplements and a gluten-free diet, have any beneficial effect for most of

the conditions they are claimed to help. While it is true that certain factors can make the bowel more permeable, this probably does not lead to anything more than temporary mild inflammation of an area of the bowel. What we do know is that the inside of the bowel is lined by a single layer of cells that make up the mucosal barrier (the barrier between the inside of the gut and the rest of the body). This barrier is effective at absorbing nutrients but prevents most large molecules and germs

passing from inside the bowel into the bloodstream and potentially irritating the bowel lining.

Effect of alcohol and certain painkillers

Alcohol, aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen are well-known irritants of the bowel lining. They damage the seals between cells, allowing water-soluble substances to pass through the gaps and into the bloodstream. Gastroenterologists (specialists in diseases of the gut) generally agree that these

slightly warmer than usual. The more exercise you do, the more calories you’ll burn. Stop smoking medicines, such as nicotine replacement therapy and the prescription tablets Zyban (bupropion) and Champix (varenicline), can double your chances of quitting successfully and also seem to help reduce weight gain in the first few months. The important thing about stopping smoking is that you see it through. If you’re concerned about weight gain but think that stopping smoking and dieting at the same time will be too much, stop smoking first and deal with any weight gain afterwards. If you’re really worried about putting on weight, ask your GP to refer you to a dietitian for a diet plan tailored to your individual needs. This plan will guide you on how much to eat based on your current weight, age, gender and activity level, and stop you gaining more weight.

TRUE OR FALSE? irritants do not usually cause anything more than just mild inflammation of a particular area of the bowel and the bowel lining becomes even more porous as a result. At the very worst, the inflammation might be bad enough to cause ulcers in the bowel lining. The vast majority of people who consume lots of alcohol or regularly take aspirin or ibuprofen have none of the widespread symptoms or health conditions that proponents of ‘leaky gut syndrome’ mention – health problems you would expect if the theory was true.

PLASMA BREAKTHROUGH

Nature as a guide in Annoying night sweats regenerative medicine: the PRF

SERIOUS OR HARMLESS?

G

REAT advances in science have started from a simple premise: to copy what nature does.

P

EOPLE who suffer night sweats will typically wake in the night to find their bed clothes and bedding drenched, even if their bedroom temperature is cool. This abnormal sweating is annoying but usually harmless. However, night sweats can sometimes be a sign of an underlying medical condition, so you should see your GP if they keep happening and you’re worried. In the meantime, you can get a better idea of the possible cause of your night sweats by reading on. However, you should not use this to diagnose yourself with a condition – always leave that to your doctor. The medical term for night sweats is nocturnal hyperhidrosis, which literally means ‘night-time excessive sweating’.

WHAT IS THE LIKELY CAUSE? The main conditions and medications that can cause night sweats are summarised below, although it should be noted that many of these conditions would cause other more specific symptoms as well. They could be due to the menopause, obstructive sleep apnoea (a condition that causes interrupted breathing during sleep), medication (antidepressants and some other psychiatric drugs can sometimes cause night sweats as a side effect, as can aspirin and the steroid drug prednisolone) oralcohol abuse or drug misuse, especially the use of heroin. Other possible causes include hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), which is commonly associated with diabetes and taking insulin and infections. Tuberculosis is the most common infection associated with night sweats but sweating may also be caused by other infections including endocarditis (inflammation of the heart valves), osteomyelitis (a bone infection), abscesses and HIV/AIDS. Night sweats can be an early symptom of certain cancers like lymphoma or leukaemia, although this is unusual and cancer would cause other symptoms too, such as unexplained weight loss. They could also be a symptom of hormone disorders such as pheochromocytoma and carcinoid syndrome (tumours that cause the body to overproduce hormones) and an overactive thyroid gland. There may not be an identifiable cause for your night sweats and it may just be an annoyance that happens every now and then. When the cause is not known, it is referred to as idiopathic hyperhidrosis.

Such is the case of the use in regenerative medicine of plasma rich in growth factors or PRF, one of the booming treatments of the current medicine. The idea is simple. When we suffer a wound in our body, mechanisms are started to heal it. Platelets produce growth factors, stimuli that tell our cells how to act, with anti-inflammatory and regenera-tive properties. Its use is not exactly new. In the 1980s, its advantages began to be studied but it was not until the late 1990s that its application spread. The Institute of Biotechnology of Vitoria, BTI, led by Dr. Eduardo Anitua, developed the PRGF® technology. The technique consists in extracting to the patient a small amount of blood from which, after a centrifugation process, platelets are extracted with high levels of proteins. The result is a plasma that accelerates the regeneration of tissues, with the advantage that there is no rejection because it is an autologous material, that is, originated by the patient himself. His breakthrough came when several elite athletes began using him in their treatments, including tennis player Rafa Nadal. Nowadays, its use has extended from aesthetic medicine, traumatology and dentistry to dermatology and orthopedics. In dentistry for example,

the applications are several. As a complement to the healing after implant placement, for bone grafts or sinus lift operations, one of the most complex in today’s dentistry. The Puerto de la Cruz clinic Artedental has has had a specialist in this technique for more than a decade, the surgeon Víctor Cubillo. Dr. Cubillo is one of the pioneers in Spain to use the A-PRF (Advanced PRF), as well as a scholar and defender of its use. “What we do here is to imitate nature. What better regenerative material could we use than the one that our own body makes? “he explains. “ “Thanks to the use of plasma, we have achieved a shorter period in patient recover y, in addition to a greater guarantee of solidification and strengthening of dental pieces, a real leap in modern dentistry.” However, this technique also has objectors. Some experts argue that everything depends on the process that is used to apply it, because when badly employed, it does not give results. In Artedental, for example, every time this material is used, a protocol based on the work of a team of professionals is implemented. “Everything works like a perfect gear,” explains Guillermo Garcia, PhD in Pharmacy, as well as a clinical analyst. García is a collaborator in

Artedental, where he goes to carry out the extractions and to perform tests on the patients to whom the plasma is going to be applied. “They ask for my opinion, and we do brief clinical sessions to discuss the analytics,” he says. It evaluates the necessary parameters, such as the level of platelets, coagulation factors or the identification of anemia. “Everything is prepared,” he explains. “There is a complete team that deals with the patient. Besides the analyst and the DUE, the auxiliaries are perfectly organised in time and form; and the surgeon, Dr. Víctor Cubillo, knows the technique perfectly and has all the material prepared (the tubes, the centrifuge ...). It is an” invisible coordination for the patient, but perfect in its execution for the professionals who work

there. “ “In Artedental, we offer a complete service. Extraction, analytical and specific treatment, either implants or sinus lift, “ says Amaya Sáez, manager of the clinic. “The extraction is always done in situ so that the intervention can be done as soon as possible. It is not left for another time, which implies an exponential advantage for the patient in terms of time and cost. “ Sáez also explains that recently other cosmetic medicine specialties have been added to the clinic’s services, complementing those for dentistry for the beautification of the smile, and also using the PRF. “Plasma rich in growth factors is a treatment that has come to stay given its innumerable advantages. We would not be in the vanguard of medicine if we missed a treatment of these characteristics, “ Amaya concludes.

The victims have one thing in common - they are all criminals. The only thing more dangerous than a murderer without a conscience is a killer with justice on his side.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) Social get-together will bring you in contact with intelligent new friends. Trying to deal with your mate will be unproductive and possibly hurtful. Romance could be exciting if you are spontaneous. PISCES (Feb. 20-Mar. 20) This is a great day to beautify your living quarters or to entertain at home. Use your creative abilities to come up with new ideas and directions. Organize your day well if you wish to accomplish all you set out to do.

UNIQUE EVENT

Granadilla coast provides perfect setting for San Silvestre Medanera

Battle of the goalies is highlight of festive programme MUNICIPAL SCHOOL

A

BOUT 500 participants, children and adults alike, gathered for the popular “San Silvestre Medanera 2016”, held in El Médano on the afternoon of Saturday, December 31. The event was organised by the Department of Sports of the council of Granadilla de Abona, headed by Sara Cano Delgado. The winners in this edition were: in the male category,

Néstor Jorge González, and female, Raquel Mesa Hernández. The organisers want to thank all the companies that in one way or another have colla-

borated with this initiative; an unmissable appointment for the athletes of the south of Tenerife every year. The San Silvestre had on this occasion a 5km route, with departure and arrival in the central square of El Medano.

The initiative was developed in a family atmosphere, festive and fun, because it is an activity that is used by the population to dismiss the year in a very original way in an incomparable setting such as the Granadilla coast.

TOY EXCHANGE

Bad weather couldn’t dent Espíritu Solidario

N

EITHER the rain nor the wind stopped the Espíritu Solidario.

C.D. Espíritu Triabona and the company Real Deals Tenerife delivered in the plaza of El Medano more than 150 new toys in exchange for food and money to benefit the Red Cross and Association Solidarios Canarios. The toys were delivered to the first boys and girls who contributed two kilos and two euros. Although the weather in El Medano was not as expected, with rain and wind, people did not want to miss this great party. In total, 340 kilograms of nonperishable food was donated to the Red Cross and € 518.58 to benefit the Canarian Solidarity Association. The event, from 10am to 6pm, featured a multitude of attractions including story-telling and inflatable castles. The organisers said they wanted to thank everyone for their support.

T

HE Municipal Football School of Granadilla de Abona (Esmugran) is always keen to promote education in values, integration and solidarity.

To celebrate the festive season, there was an intense programme of activities with various tournaments, a Christmas campus and a solidarity collection of toys. The initiatives began with the tournaments among the different school categories: prebenjamín in El Médano; Benjamin in San Isidro; infants in Charco del Pino and alevines in Granadilla; followed by the turn of the four to five year olds. There was also an activity called ‘Battle of goalkeepers’ with other clubs and the collaboration of the association ‘Activoz’ and a Christmas campus over one week. Sports councillor Sara Cano highlighted the great success of the sports programme during the Christmas week organised by this school which is a reference on the island and has more than 49 teams and more than 700 children in the municipality.

SANTIAGO DEL TEIDE

Praise for Countdown to fifth tennis player

evening solidarity race

M

ORE than 150 athletes have already signed up for the V Evening Solidarity Race of Santiago del Teide.

T

HE Mayor of El Rosario, Escolástico Gil, has praised young tennis player Daniel Ventura, a resident of Tabaiba, for his continued suc-

cess.

He has been awarded for the second consecutive year by the prestigious Barry Universty of Miami, in the state of Florida ( USA). Daniel Ventura, who was accompanied by his father, Francisco Javier González, detailed his tennis history, since he started in the Club Andrea de Tabaiba until he landed at the Canarias Tennis Academy in Los Campitos and later, given his skills, was signed for the Barry University team, with which he managed to reach the semifinals of the Sunshine State Conference disputed last year. The Mayor congratulated the athlete, only 20 years old, for his success (he came to be ranked 199th in the national ranking) and encouraged him to continue to combine his studies and sports practice.

The test will be held on January 21st and registrations are open until January 16th. It is organised by the local council’s department of sports, headed by Guillermo Évora, and run in collaboration with different entities, hotel complexes and commercial firms. The start time is 7pm. As every year, the test has a marked solidarity, since for each inscription it is necessary to provide 5kg of non-perishable food that will be delivered at the time of picking up the dorsal and which will be donated to the municipal food bank. Anyone can take part, federated or not, as long as they are 15 years or more on the day of the race. The course this year remains the same although for the female category it varies a bit. The male circuit will be 7.5km through the urban centre of

Puerto de Santiago, Playa La Arena and Los Gigantes while the female route is the same although of 6.5km as it cuts the descent and demanding climb of the area of La Hondura. The departure and arrival will be in the square of the Vigil of Puerto de Santiago. Registration will be open until 20:00 hours on January 16 and can only be done online, through the web: www.deportesantiagodelteide.com. Three categories will be established: Sub25, Senior and Veterans M46 both male and female and medals will be awarded to the top three in each category and the top three in the general and the local will receive trophies. The delivery of dorsals will be done the same day of the test in the square of La Vigilia, from 17:00 to 18:30 hours.

RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS

Acrobatic art, sportsmanship and solidarity

M

ORE than 250 girls of the municipal school of rhythmic gymnastics of Granadilla and Club Adoney showed their acrobatic art, sportsmanship and solidarity.

The festival, which was attended by the first deputy mayor, Marcos González Alonso; the delegated councillor for sports, Sara Cano Delgado, and other members of the municipal corporation, was held in the municipal sports hall and gathered around 2,000 people, who filled almost all the stands of the aforementioned sports facility. The public, including many fathers and mothers and other relatives, did not want to lose the skills of the smallest municipal school and Club Adoney, led by Laura Garcia, and the monitors, Laura Quesada, Nayra Garcia, Mirella Martinez , Helen Hernández and Noelia Zamora. During the event, the council paid a small tribute to the recent champions of Spain in the youngest category of the Adoney Club. In addition the club, wanted to pay homage to all the members who have participated in the different championships during the whole season. The event was used to collect toys for those in need in the municipality and they were later distributed by the Red Cross to families.

Welcome project at Basilio Labrador sports complex

L

OS Realejos council and Tenerife Cabildo have started the project to condition the parquet of the Basilio Labrador sports complex for 48,400 euros. The work is part of the insular programme for improvement and conditioning of sports facilities ‘Tenerife + Activa’ with co-financing at

80 per cent and 20 per cent. The reconditioning and polishing got underway immediatetely following the hosting of the fifth Gala of

Sports. According to the technical report of the Project and Works Unit of Los Realejos, directed by councillor Noelia González, “the slabs that make up the parquet were deteriorated with subsidence in localised areas due to the lack of support in the lower

support tracks, in addition to the wear and tear presented by the varnish layer, which accelerated its degradation process.” Sports councillor, Benito Dévora said the project was ver y much welcomed to improve the facilities and prevent falls and slips.


MORTGAGE NEWS: Interest rates end 2016 with record low

Eurozone interest rates ended 2016 on a record low, having been negative for 11 out of 12 months last year.

T

WO month Euribor , the rate used to calculate most mortgage repayments in Spain, came in at 0.08 in December, down from -0.074 in November, the eleventh consecutive month of negative Euribor interest rates.

Compared to December last year, when Euribor was 0.059, the benchmark interest rate for Eurozone mortgages was down by 236%. As a result, borrowers in Spain with an annually resetting Spanish mortgage will see their mortgage payments fall by around €7 per month for a typical €120,000 loan with a 20 year term. Meanwhile, new mortgage lending rose 17% in October, according to the latest figures from the National Institute of Statistics, though the average loan value fell by 1.1% to €110,035. Year-to-date (10 months) new lending was up 13% by volume, 16.3% by value, and the average loan value was up 2.9%. That’s more money pouring into the Spanish property market on the buying side, but the overall value of outstanding mortgage loans is still falling, as more mortgages are retired than issued. I would like to point out, as I have done most months that we have been in this financial wonderland, that negative base rates are a crazy situation, but also a golden opportunity for investors to buy Spanish property near the bottom of the market with a long-term fixedinterest loan at a time when borrowing money is probably as cheap as it is ever going to get. This next chart helps to illustrate just how low interest rates have gone. These low rates can last years – experts say they don’t expect rates to rise this year – but can’t last forever.
