Spain begins tough new stance on false food poisoning claims TOURISTS ARE WARNED OF PROSECUTION

T

WO Brits have been arrested in Mallorca on suspicion of encouraging false food poisoning claims as Spain begins its tough crackdown on the massive fraud. These are the first arrests made but more are expected, not just in the Balearics but elsewhere in Spain. Until now, hoteliers have been paying out as much as 5,000 pounds a time to settle claims out of court because to challenge them would be too costly and time-consuming. But amidst fears that bogus claims could soar through the roof this summer, hotel chiefs warned they would no longer tolerate any lies and will prosecute any tourist found cheating, as well as the organisers behind the scam. Spanish police say the two

Brits were arrested in Alcudia on suspicion of coercing holidaymakers to claim they had contracted food poisoning whilst staying at a Mallorca hotel. The pair are thought to be representatives of so-called “claim lawyers” who stand outside Spanish hotels and encourage British tourists to make the claims simply by signing a form. Police say there is an “organised structure” behind the claims which has already cost the Spanish hotel industry 60 million euros and use a legal loophole in UK law.

It is estimated that more than 90 per cent of the food poisoning claims received by tour operators are fraudulent . “If all these cases were really true, an epidemic would have been declared across Spain,” said a spokesman for the the Spanish Confederation of Hotels and Tourist Lodgings following a meeting with ABTA. “We will no longer be a soft touch!” Secretary general of the Spanish confederation, Ramon Estalella confirmed: “All

defrauders will be brought before the Spanish courts.” The fraud has been hitting all parts of Spain, including Madrid, the Canary Islands, the Balearics, Costa del Sol, Benidorm and the Costa Blanca. The “claim farmers” have been encouraging British tourists to collect “false evidence” such as pictures of

full dustbins, receipts from chemists or even going along to the doctor complaining of gastroenteritis, even though they are not ill. The hoteliers say other measures implemented, such as information and warning campaigns, have failed to work which is why the tough new stance is being adopted. “The false claims continue

to come in like a relentness drip,” they say. Until now, hoteliers in Spain have regarded paying out as the cheaper option. “We just cannot wait any longer for long-term measures,” said Ramon Estalella. “The message is clear. The Spanish hotel industry wants a solution and wants it now.”

Tenerife aims to be “more than an island”

T

ENERIFE has presented its new tourism strat egy based on the shared management of the destination.

The model proposes, through ten measuees, different lines of work to achieve a quality, competitive and better prepared destination. Looking ahead to the year 2030, Tenerife Cabildo president, Carlos Alonso said they wanted a more competitive island, with greater capabilities, more autonomous, connected and “more open to the outside”.

“To achieve that goal, we have to work to be an island, with less of ‘island’,” he said. Tourism councillor, Alberto Bernabé said 140 people within 13 groups had participated in drawing up the plans but stressed: “It is not the strategy of Tourism of Tenerife but the strategy of the island of Tenerife.” President of Ashotel, Jorge Marichal, pointed out that “one in four people work in Tenerife

in the tourism sector.” Sustainable tourism develop-

ment is high on the agenda, with the overall aim being to “advance a destination of quality, competitive and better prepared to satisfy an increasingly experienced tourist.” However, the plan also wants to provide a better quality of life for those who live here. The Cabildo says it is very confident Tenerife can adapt with the times as it is already a great success story and is capable of coping with the challenges which lie ahead.

GLASGOW FLIGHT

British man arrested following stabbing incident

A

41-year-old British man wanted in connection with the suspected attempted murder of two other Brits in Tenerife has been arrested on board a holiday flight from Glasgow. Police swooped as the plane arrived at Tenerife’s south airport after receiving a tip-off that the suspect would soon be attempting to return to the island. He had been wanted since July 2016 in connection with the stabbing of two British men, aged 30 and 45, in Los Cristianos. Both victims were stabbed several times. They were taken to hospital with multiple stab wounds, one of them in a particular

serious condition. Police said it was a “brutal” assault which left one of the victims with at least eight stab wounds. The two attackers, armed with a knife and a knuckle duster, shocked onlookers when they sped up in a red Audi convertible car in which they also made their escape. Police said at the time that both men they wanted to speak to were British. One of them, aged 31, was arrested a few days later in a nightclub in

Tenerife after being spotted by a police officer. The other man for whom an extensive search was launched was described as very tall, well over 6ft, with a distinctive tattoo on his neck. It is understood he managed to leave Tenerife and went back to the UK, allegedly using a false name. His arrest took place at the island’s south airport after officers in Tenerife staged a special operation at the south airport. He was stopped and arrested as he got off the Glasgow flight on May 31st, police have confirmed. The knife attack happened

just after 10.30pm outside a row of bars in the quiet area of Avenida San Francisco on July 24th, 2016. It is not known as a trouble area and is frequented by many British families. At the time, police said they were working on the theory that it was some sort of score settling. The investigation and intervention was carried out by national police officers attached to the Judicial Police Brigade of the South Tenerife Police Station collaborating with the same police officers assigned to the Reina Sofía Airport Police Station.

TUNNEL TRAGEDY

Man and woman killed in motorcycle accident

A

young man and woman have died in a horrific motorcycling accident inside a Tenerife tunnel.

The tragedy happened at 6.21pm on June 11th on the TF-445, at the height of the PK 4 at the access tunnel to the lighthouse of Teno, Buenavista del Norte. The dead man was aged 28 and the woman was about 30. Details of their nationality had not been released at the time of going to press. The 112 emergency control centre sent out the police, Civil Guard, Canary Emergency

Service and medics after receiving a call about the accident. A doctor and nurse also came out from a local health centre. On their arrival, they could only confirm their deaths because of the severity of the injuries they received during the impact of the crash. A full investigation was immediately launched to determine exactly what happened.

The programme revolves around the beach and around 150 over-60s are expected to take part. The activities take place during July and August on the Santa Cruz beach of Las Teresitas. As usual, there will be free transport with a variety of pick-up points. It is open to all those over the age of 60 who are registered in El Rosario.

Sr. Regalado said the “much-needed work” of the improvement of the Pelada sanitation network was started several months ago to solve the problem of overflow of wastewater and rainfall in this coastal area. Shortly, adjudication of the channelling of calle El Mirador from the zone of the Saltadero to the Barranco de Cha Joaquina in San Isidro is anticipated; in addition to improving the supply network and municipal deposits, scheduled for this year. In total, the investment in the municipality of these projects

amounts to 1.6 million euros, of which more than 560,000 euros went to the sanitation network. Sr. Gonzalez also stressed the importance of works to help the run-off problems in El Medano where residents had long been suffering. Granadilla is also pressing for priority for other projects related to the sanitation and purification of water in the different districts of the municipality. In order to agree on the work to be included in the next Cooperation Plan 2018-2021, the Insular Water Council has drawn up a master plan for each municipality that establishes water needs in order to comply with the European directive on sanitation and purification.

NEW SETTLEMENTS

FINANCE OFFERED

Santa Cruz Puerto makes significant “very unhappy” progress in wage arrears with lack of new P schools in city

S

ANTA Cruz city council says the capital needs new schools and has offered to help finance them.

“We are aware of the lack of supply in early childhood education but the competent institution is the Government of the Canar y Islands,” a spokesman has stressed. To this end, the council says it has “extended its hand” to the Government and “reiterates its willingness to invest in the creation of new schools for children in this capital, so that we are progressively in a position to better meet the existing demand. “ “We all agree that the offer of places in children’s education in Santa Cruz is insufficient and we have manifested this from this council and unanimously from the full corporation. We have also transferred this message to the Government of the Canary Islands, with meetings with both the Minister of Education, Soledad Monzón, and more recently, in January this year, with the Minister of Social

Affairs, Cristina Valido, “ said the seventh deputy mayor and councillor of social care, Oscar García. The Santa Cruz authority says it has even made an offer of land for the creation of a children’s school in the district of Sobradillo, with 78 new places, which would add to the 140 offered by the schools of Tara and Faina. “So far we have not had the positive response we expected and that we are still waiting,” he said. The council points out that Santa Cruz is not included in the list of schools proposed for the municipalities of Tenerife as published in July 2016. This, it says, is because the school projects in it are definitive, not proposals. It says it trusts that the new budget framework of the autonomous community WILL include a new project for Santa Cruz. “Santa Cruz waits with open arms,” says the council.

MAN FAINTED

Emergency helicopter rescues runner

T

HE emergency services were called out to come to the rescue of a runner who became ill whilst taking part in a mountain race.

The 35-year-old man fainted whilst in the Güímar/Arafo summit district. The 112 control centre received a call reporting concern about his whereabouts. He was found unconscious. The emergency helicopter located the runner and gave him treatment at the scene before he was airlifted to hospital. His condition was not serious.

UERTO de la Cruz has been getting to grips with wage arrears which has been a problem in the municipality for a numer of years.

In a statement isssued by the council, it has been confirmed that more than half of the workforce of the council have signed individual settlements due to wage arrears for the periods between 2015 and 2016. Eighty-one workers, of a workforce of 150 labourers, have accepted the conditions established in the agreement ratified with the UGT union. At the last plenary session held on June 5th, the Government Group urgently required a credit amendment to provide the necessary equipment to cover the payment of arrears ie atotal of 1,420,000 euros, 885,000 euros for 71 workers and 535,000 for employees of the Local Autonomous Organism and Archaeological Museum. These amounts would face the judgments of the High Court of Justice of the Canary Islands on the Collective Conflict corresponding to the periods 2015 and 2016. Of the 81 workers who

have approved individual settlements, 36 correspond to the union UGT and 45 correspond to the union Intersindical Canarias, who “are detached from the guidelines established by their union and sign their individual settlements, thus ending a conflict which has lasted for many years, “explained the councillor for human resources, Antonia Maria Dominguez. She stressed that with the signing of these individual settlement agreements, “new judicial proceedings have been avoided, allowing workers to collect the corresponding

arrears” and stressed the need to “continue on the path of negotiations to achieve peace in the workplace. “ Puerto’s Mayor Lope Afonso valued the great negotiating effort that all workers have shown, “regardless of guidelines”, to reach an agreement “beneficial to the individual interests of each public

employee, continuous dialogue that has been carried out with all parties involved “. The Employment and Human Resources Department is confident that in a short period of time the agreement will extend the entire workforce, ending a collective dispute that lasts several years.

Man arrested for burglaries

Police arrests in driving licence scam

S

PANISH police have arrested 116 people for using false documentation to obtain a Spanish driving licence.

The arrests were made in various parts of Madrid and all were of Dominican nationality. Among the detainees are four responsible for providing their compatriots with false Dominican driving licences, which were subsequently exchanged for Spanish ones, taking advantage of existing agreements between both governments. They didn’t have to carry out any sort of exams. Five homes were raided as part of the investigation, as well as an hotel. Various documents were seized, together with two laptops, 16 mobile phones and more than 4,000 euros. The investigation remains open and further arrests may be made.

P

OLICE have arrested a 40-year-old man in Santa Cruz for a string of break-ins where he used metal water covers to smash windows and doors. He is suspected of being responsible for at least nine burglaries, all in properties in quiet residential streets. Police said the man is known to them and was prosecuted for similar offences in 2013.

Arona launches study to enhance open commercial zones

FIESTA CELEBRATIONS

“Come and taste La Orotava” says council as new gastronomic event launched

A

A

RONA council has launched a comprehensive study of its open commercial areas to enhance their development.

The project includes the analysis of supply and demand with sectoral workshops and surveys of clients, visitors and businesses. A report will be presented at the end of August which will include recommendations for specific actions and their cost. The initiative is being called “Diagnóstico “ and is being led by the company Innovaris SL. Councillor for economic promotion, trade and employment, Dácil León Reverón said: “We understand that it is very important to know the starting situation of our commercial sector, in

order to develop strategies that really achieve the improvement objectives that we need and look for. This is a project that will lead us to know the ins and outs of our commercial fabric, as well as the point of view of the consumer, from where we will derive the precise information to establish planning as efficient as possible. “ The project is divided into five phases and surveys have already started in commercial areas, asking questions of both local people and tourists alike. There will also be workshops involving business-men and representatives of the entities involved in the commercial areas of Arona.

new gastronomic event is taking place in La Orotava to coincide with local fiesta celebrations.

“Saborea La Orotava” has no specific theme and the establishments taking part are not confined to producing either a main dish or dessert with any particular ingredient. Instead, they have the freedom to produce what they want, giving customers a real taste of La Orotava as intended. However, each participating establishment has pledged to offer discounts and menus at a good price. “Thus, there are businesses with special discounts, others with allegorical menus and low prices, while others offer some novel proposals exclusive for these dates. This is not a contest but to promote the gastronomic offer of La Orotava on these festive days in which thousands of people visit the municipality,” a spokesman explained. In total, until June 25th, there will be about 20 proposals, linked to other establishments, so that residents and visitors can enjoy these, coinciding with the main events of the wide programme of the holidays. To know all the information about the Saborea project, and the diverse and attractive proposals of each establishment, the digital platform www.saborealaorotava.com has been created and managed by the companies Input and Conecta. The initiative is organised by the local council’s economic department as part of the global project Saborea La Orotava which aims to boost the commercial activity of the town and turn the spotlight on its gastronomic expertise. “The objective is to make known to the local public, and to the visitor, all the gastronomic offers in this northern locality, which has grown in recent years notably and is one of the most referent of the Canary Islands,” says the council. “And to this is added the cultural, natural and ethnographic heritage offered by this northern town. It is a luxury to stroll through the streets of La Orotava, enjoy eating and shopping, and more so on these days in which we celebrate our popular festivals.” Another event coming up is a Gastromercado in July, an experience where the best of local gastronomy and a drink can be enjoyed. The event is on July 29th and 30th.

New name, new theme for La Pinta hotel

T

MAJOR FACELIFT

HE popular four-star La Pinta hotel in Costa Adeje is undergoing a major facelift to appeal to the family market.

A project is also being planned which will allow the establishment to “fit into the environment”. The hotel is currently closed as the reformations continue but is due to reopen in August. It will be known as the Hovima La Pinta Beachfront Family Hotel. President of Tenerife Cabildo, Carlos Alonso and tourism

chief, Alberto Bernabé were among guests who attended a recent guided tour. They were joined by representatives of the hotel group and of the hotel employers’ association, Ashotel. The hotel renovation is taking place in phases, the first phase of which is being carried out at this time, and involves a total investment of eight million euros. The first phase began on

April 17th and is planned to end on July 31th. During the visit, the model of a thematisation of ‘The Pinta Ocean Window’, a project of Nosolocamas Alliance and Tourism of Tenerife, was presented for the environmental interpretation of the marine ecosystem of Tenerife, especially of the area of Costa Adeje where this hotel is located. The ultimate goal of this project is to connect this establishment with its surroundings.

IREFIGHTERS were called out to deal with a blaze in a tobacco factory in Santa Cruz.

The fire broke out in the property in calle Juan Ravina Méndez and was attended by two crews from the city and La Laguna. “The fire originated in one

of the filters of extraction of the tobacco dust that was in the roof of the factory,” a fire brigade spokesman explained. “The filter was of considerable dimensions and each

filter has in its interior more than 100 slats that had to be removed one by one to be able to cool and to suffocate the possible embers that remained in the interior.” Staff inside the factory had to be evicted as the fire brigade successfully managed to contain the flames.

JULY DATE

Costa Adeje Golf to host “two concerts in one”

A

DEJE is to offer “two concerts in one” on July 15th as Golf Costa Adeje once again be comes home to another evening of pop.

The group “Orishas” will return to Tenerife as guest artists of Juan Luis Guerra. It is being billed as the summer concert of the Canary Islands. This is the only concert Juan Luis Guerra is giving in the archipelago as part of his international tour. The show is being sponsored by Adeje council and Cepsa with the collaboration of Golf Costa Adeje, Volkswagen and Sonopluss. “The concert of Juan Luis Guerra will allow people to enjoy two concerts in one, with the same entrance and at the same price,” said a spokesman. With two Latin Grammys, Orishas have been christened “ the Cuban phenomenon of hip hop” and will unite the ritual sounds and the beat of the streets of Havana. Juan Luis Guerra is the winner of 21 Grammy Awards and is considered by international critics as the Latin American artist with the highest worldwide recognition. A career of more than three decades and nearly 30 recordings with sales of 30 million endorse the success of the famous Dominican singer and composer. Juan Luis Guerra has shown a special relationship with the Canarian public throughout his musical career and all of his concerts have been a sell-out. Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.es, Ticketea.com and canariasviaja.com.

T

HE skill of a lorry driver whose brakes failed on a busy road has been praised by the authorities.

At 8am, an accident occurred at the branch connecting the TF1 with the coastal road TF-47 at the height of the Fonsalía nucleus. “The driver of a truck approached the roundabout downwards when he detected a mechanical failure in the brakes,” a spokesman for the local council explained. “Observing that there was no traffic in the

ascending lane, he gave a turn that caused the vehicle to overturn in the central garden area of the roundabout.” The emergency services, including the police, medics and Civil Guard, were quickly on the scene. The driver was transferred by ambulance to Quirón Costa Adeje Hospital with a head injury and moderate back trauma. “Fortunately, the skill of the

driver and the rapid intervention of the security forces and emergency services prevented us from having a more major incident on a busy road, especially at that time of the morning, since that is where the vehicles come from the island ring, and the TF-47 between Playa de San Juan and Alcalá, “explained councillor for citizen security Guía de Isora, Ángeles González. Road maintenance personnel removed the vehicle and cleared the sand of the area to ensure the safety of the road.

BARGAINS GALORE

Countdown to second Puerto Street Market

P

LANS are being finalised for the second edition of Puerto Street Market.

On Saturday, June 17th, Puerto de la Cruz will repeat an event that will be a must for anyone who wants to find authentic bargains throughout this tourist municipality in the north of the island. The event will feature more than 250 companies offering their best prices, thus promoting local commerce,

one of the main objectives of Puerto council. Puerto Street Market will become a fiesta of shopping at irresistible prices but that day Puerto de la Cruz will be much more. Live music on the streets of the municipality, children’s leisure activities, sports activities, gastronomic tastings and cultural events will make this

event an irreproachable day. A day in which businesses of more than 15 streets will open their doors to the public and will remain so from 10am and throughout business hours. In this second edition of Puerto Street Market, you will not only find offers in the most central streets of the municipality. “Areas such as La Paz will also offer great discounts to clients thus boosting virtually all of Puerto de la Cruz,” said councillor for trade, Antonia María Domínguez. In addition, the night will also be important for Puerto Street Market since during this evening the nightlife venues of the municipality will join this event. The main attraction of Puerto Street Market are the local shops. The social networks therefore become part of the promotion as each day, bargains which can be found on June 17th will be publicised.

High drama as eagle rescued

UNANIMOUS DECISION

Major honour for Adeje school as Gold Medal presented

A

DEJE’S secondary school has been presented with the municipality’s highest distinction, the “Medalla de Oro” or coveted Gold Medal.

It is one of only five institutions in Adeje to achieve the honour. The medal was presented by the Mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga on behalf of the town following the unanimous agreement of all the political groups. “”Today, the municipality of Adeje, represented by its council, recognises their work, their effort, at the service of one of the noblest human activities that is the training and preparation of people,” said the Mayor in the speech delivered during the ceremony held in the Adeje Convent. The event was attended by the entire Adeje council as well as the educational community, Ana Dorta, Director General of Educational Infrastructures of the Government of the Canary Islands and representatives of associations and collectives. Sr. Fraga said he could give many reasons why they chose to honour the school. “One of them is that it was the first institute that opened in Adeje and for the people of my generation, who lived the hardship and lack of having no place to train, was a symbol, the beginning of a new stage,” he said. “The second reason is that they are celebrating the 25th anniversary and it is a good time to look at that history and project it into the future. In these 25 years have passed generations of boys and girls who have graduated. The third reason is that in this quarter of a centur y they have been able to create a style of coexistence, an educational community, the transmission

of knowledge and that is a great merit. “ The award was collected on behalf of the school by he director of IES Adeje, Félix Pérez Hernández who said: “”Today I want to express our deepest gratitude to the local corporation, especially our mayor, for this distinction and to express the feeling of our entire educational community for the role played by IES Adeje in these 25 years of history. “ “We understand this high consideration as an impetus to non-university public education. The IES Adeje today is representative of all the educational communities of Adeje and, somehow, we want to share it with everyone. A municipality that values the role played by secondary education and professional training in the development of Adeje is a municipality that clearly indicates its commitment to education and marks the way to grow as a more informed and informed society. We are very pleased that our local government is so clear and appreciated. “

IREMEN certainly needed a head for heights when called out to an unusual rescue. A crew based in Santa Cruz came to the help of an injured eagle which was perched in the corner of a building in the capital.

The incident happened in calle Bethencourt Alfonso and drew a crowd of onlookers.

American hikers get lost in Teide National Park

A

full-scale rescue mission was launched in the Teide National Park after a group of five American hikers lost their way.

The group, including a child, were enjoying a day out in the spectacular terrain when they got separated from others and were confused over the way back. An alert was sent out to the 112 emergency centre which activated the rescue services, including medics, the Civil Guard, police, cable car personnel, emergency helicopter and the National Park team. It was approaching 6pm

but still light. The group had been following the footpath 7 in the area of La Rambleta. The rescue helicopter flew over the area several times and firemen searched the Montaña Blanca zone where the walkers were found safe and well. They were transported back in 4x4 vehicles to the base of the cable car where they had parked their vehicles.

Tenerife stands in silence to Vienna, Mozart honour terrorist victims TENERIFE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

BRAVERY AWARD

and Bruckner

V

IENNA, composer first performances and D Minor – these aspects characterised both the concert pieces in the auditorium, Santa Cruz, given by the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Pablo Pérez on the 2nd of June. The evening began with Mozart´s piano concerto no. 20 in D minor. Mozart performed the first performance in Vienna in 1785. Here the pianist was Hiroo Sato, who gave a technically brilliant performance. However, the complexity of the concerto´s dark and impassioned features and its splendour were not realised, backed up by an orchestra that seemed indifferent. A technically correct performance, but lacking in the nuances. The first and third movement cadenzas were disappointing: technical bravura, mechanical, and not much else. Where was the passion, and where were the quirks of interpretation? Absent. The appeal of this concerto is that it is dark and

impassioned, combined with some splendour. Were these aspects delivered? No. Hiroo Sato then gave us a lively encore: the third movement of Mozart´s A major K331 piano sonata. The second half consisted of the third symphony by Bruckner, again in D Minor. Bruckner conducted the first performance in 1877 and the symphony was heavily criticized. Bruckner then revised it to that we know today. It was his most Wagnerian style symphony: lyrical, sublime, spacious. Here the orchestra did better. The ebb and flow, momentum, the juxtaposition of the lyrical and polka sections, and the general sweep were well realized. By John Gardner

ENERIFE has been standing in silence to honour those killed in the London Bridge and Manchester terrorism attacks.

Authorities throughout the island paid their respects to the victims and issued statements deploring the violence. One of the eight people killed in the London Bridge attack was a 39-year-old Spaniard, Ignacio Echeverría who was working in London as a banker. He spoke four languages and was described as highly talented and a great and caring person. He died a hero as he tried to protect a woman from the knife-wielding terrorists with his skate board but was fatally stabbed himself. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has paid tribute to Ignacio and revealed that he is recommending him for a

posthumous award of the Silver Cross of the Order of Civil Merit for his “heroic and exemplary act”. Petitions have also been set up on change.org to get a street in Madrid named after him and his local council of Las Rozas is considering creating a skate park in his honour and awarding him their own bravery medal. Other campaigns have been started on change.org for further bravery medals, including a Royal recognition. At the time of the attack, in which eight people died, Ignacio was returning from skating in a park with his friends when they saw at least

two men attacking a woman in the surroundings of Borough Market, next to the London Bridge. His friends have confirmed he rushed to help her, using his skateboard to hit her assailants but was stabbed in the side the process. He then fell to the

floor, still clutching his skateboard. Mariano Rajoy said he was very distressed at Ignacio’s death and considers the Silver Cross would be a “deserved homage.” His friends say he acted with great bravery, without thought for his own safety.

ACTION CALL

Tenerife has Big clean-up in Playa San Juan “no limits” for M active tourism ORE than 100 people gathered in Playa de San Juan to collaborate and enjoy a day of education and environmental action, organised by the Department of Environment. The students of CEIP Adoración Rodríguez encouraged visitors who were enjoying the sea to help them with the cleaning of the sand of the beach and through the distribution of ashtrays. Volunteer divers also participated, with the collaboration of the Municipal School of Nautical Sports who carried out cleaning of the seabed at the pier of Playa San Juan. Councillor for the environment, Francisco Baute said:

ORE than one million tourists who come to Tenerife each year practise some sort of sports activity and tourism chiefs have been promoting these charms. “Tenerife No Limits” came under the spotlight in Madrid at an event which showed what could be enjoyed on the island for the more sporty visitor. Insular councillor of tourism, Alberto Bernabé, said Tenerife, thanks to its climate, natural spaces and infrastructures, “is positioning itself as one of the most attractive destinations in the national panorama to combine a holiday with the practise of sports activities and leisure.” He added: “Approximately five per cent of the total of tourists, around 250,000, expressly chooses Tenerife for their vacations because of the possibilities to carry out

sports activities which shows that this is a product that has been consolidated within the destination’s tourism strategy. “ During a presentation at the Madrid event, a review was also made of the main activities integrated in the Tenerife No Limits brand, depending on the environment in which they are developed: land, sea and air. These included hiking, with the island offering nearly 1,500 kilometres of trails; caving Tenerife has the largest volcanic tube in Europe moutain biking, diving, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing and paragliding.

“All of us present have put our grain of sand on this day, but the important thing now is that the message will be deep and we make a continuous effort to keep our territory clean. Sometimes we do not realise the damage we do to marine fauna with gestures that can easily be avoided.” Throughout the morning, the TV channel 24-7 Tenerife Online Tv made a special programme (and live broad-

One of the fires broke out in busland in the ravine of Colino. A passer-by spotted the potentially dangerous situation and called the 112 emergency centre. Firefighters from the park of La Laguna and Santa Cruz de Tenerife also intervened in the extinction of a fire in stubble, near some greenhouses, on the road La Barranquera (Valle de Guerra).

“AGAINST REGULATIONS”

RONA council has blamed the previous administration for constructing footbridges which do not comply with the regulations, cost too much and had no input from local residents. Various footbridges in the municipality therefore have to be replaced, they say, and will allow full accessibility to all, including people in wheelchairs or using mobility scooters. The council voiced its allegations whilst giving an update on the new footbridge for Avenida Chayofita which, said councillor for works José Luis Gómez, “people have a right to be able to cross with safety.” He said it was totally mandatory to replace all the walkways constructed under the previous council because they did not meet the current legislation. He said the breaches included lack of accessibility for all and no lighting which affected

security. He claimed they were “built overnight” at a cost of more than 600,000 euros without prior consultation with residents. The new footbridge will be about 50 metres per side and will be integrated into the landscape, accessible and illuminated. It will also allow access to schools, colleges and sports centres in the area. “This is a completely transparent project and we have consulted citizens because it was in our electoral programme, which was voted by the majority of Arona citizens, and will follow an administrative procedure that guarantee the participation of all,” he pledged.

El Rosario has launched its first-ever Graffiti Contest of the Canaries and is inviting sketched ideas before the deadline of June 15th. Up to three works will be selected by a panel of judges and the artists will be invited to paint them in calle Verodes this summer. The new competition follows on from a suggestion made by a professor at La Laguna University during studies into the new materials used in different cultural disciplines. A resident of the district of Tabaiba in El Rosario, he is also providing the wall space as the canvas. The winning works will be exhibited for almost a year, until the organisation of the next edition.

LEAR’S MACAW

Another European first for Loro Parque in breeding programme

L

ORO Parque in Puerto de la Cruz has become the only zoological centre in Europe to reproduce the Lear’s Macaw.

In another magnificent success for its breeding programme, the Foundation has achieved a breakthrough in the production of the “Anodorhynchus leari”, an endangered species that lives in the north of Brazil. Since 2006, when the Brazilian government first sent a pair of Lear Macaws for reproduction to Loro Parque, LPF has obtained 30 individuals born in Tenerife; nine individuals have been returned to Brazil already. The acclimatisation of the parrots has been fundamental in order to achieve such a successful breeding. The imitation of their natural habitat, the good climate and the food from the licuri palm tree – the same they feed on in Brazil – have been the keys for such good results. Lear macaws suffer illegal trade with the capture of its young, and when grown up, farmers chase after them to protect their corn. Their habitat is increasingly degraded by the use of land for cattle, and also by the indiscriminate collection of leaves and fruits of the licuri palm. The scientific director of LPF, Rafael Zamora, explains the process of adaptation and

PARKS’ INITIATIVE

A greener and more colourful La Orotava

L

A Orotava is getting greener, thanks to a new programme organised by the local council.

In the coming months, various projects will be carried out as part of the contract won by the new company managing parks and gardens. At the moment, the area

being concentrated on is alongside the TF-211 road, also known as Avenida Nelson Mandela, and in La Paz Square, main entrance to the municipality. The work includes new irrigation, water-saving measures, sprinklers, new

vegetation, replacing damaged or missing trees and landscaping. It is generally aimed at giving more colour to La Orotava. A new welcome sign is also being installed on the roundabout at the Plaza de La Paz. The Mayor Francisco Linares said he valued the work being done by the new concessionaire company, Interjardín, to maintain and improve more than 112,000 square metres of green areas of the municipality, as well as other complementary elements. “All this contributes to the richness and environmental variety of our districts and outlying areas and the general rejuvenation of the municipality,” he said.

the creation of a habitat most similar to its natural environment: “When the first pair was going to arrive, we took a photo of the cliff where they lived in the area of Brazil so that our team of craft workers could recreate an imitation as close as possible to these rocks; We have managed to recreate their natural habitat here at Loro Parque.” Loro Parque Foundation has managed the recovery of the species and change the category of protection from ‘critically endangered’ to ‘threatened animal’; a very important step in conservation. Up to this date, nearly 500,000 euros have been invested in the protection of Lear’s free-ranging macaw, contributing to the definition of priority actions, previously studying its geographic movements and food resources, and sensitisation of the local populations on the importance of maintai-ning the licuri palm. The objective remains to situate Lear’s macaw as an unmanaged species, reducing its threats and recovering the wild population, in addition to protect this palm tree, essential for the long-term recovery of the species.

OOK beyond the coat and black cats have all the charm and charisma of their more colourful cousins.

M

ORE than 600 schoolchildren from 12 schools in the Granadilla municipality celebrated World Environment Day in the central square of El Médano. Granadilla de Abona council, through the public company of Municipal Services (Sermugran), organised a varied programme of activities with the aim of publicising the policies of waste collection and sensitising the population in the care of the environment . The Mayor, José Domingo Regalado, and the president and vice president of Sermugran, Marcos González and María Candelaria Rodríguez, respectively, joined this great party promoting recycling and sustainability. From 9am onwards, initiatives began, including innovative recycling workshops on subjects such as first aid in marine animals and the production of African masks and puppets, among others. There was also a sample of vehicles for waste collection and road cleaning; theatre and an act of recognition to Ecoembes. The Mayor stressed that the best way to promote recycling policies is through raising awareness among the young.

This is why numerous workshops are being held in schools and institutes, as well as solidarity initiatives and in the shops themselves, which have led to an increase in the collection of packaging, paper and cardboard. On the other hand, Marcos González and María Candelaria Rodríguez highlighted the commitment that is developed through Sermugran, the only one in the Canaries that is part of the board of directors of the National Association of Public Companies of the Environment. In addition, they are grateful for the collaboration and involvement of schools and institutes in the initiatives carried out, as well as all entities participating in World Environment Day: Ecoembes, Cajasiete, CajaCanarias, Fundación Disa, Ataretaco, Contenur, Personas + sostenibles, Ecovidrio, Canarias Sostenible y Verde, Fundación Canarias Recicla and Aguas de Teror, among others.

Not to mention their sleek glossy dark coats which complement their bright shining eyes. They are stunning, regal looking animals; each one an individual. Black cats are just as wonderful as any other, with exactly the same needs - love and care, in a home of their own. Then why is it so hard for us to find homes for them? I don’t know but to encourage adoption all black kittens are provided with kitten injections, microchip and neutering free of charge. If you enjoy the company of cats whatever their colour, one thing is certain, those who have looked beyond the coat and adopted a black cat or kitten,

consider themselves extremely lucky indeed.

Cat of the Week Think a tiny kitten is cute but too much work? Well Dexter is one of our older black kittens, he’s only 12 months, so still a young man and has always been in a family home. He likes a spot of fresh air but loves a cuddle too. Dexter has had his kitten injections, micro chip and has been neutered. Perfect for people with busy lives.

English and Maths morning

Y

EAR 6 Junior School students at Wingate School recently participated in a transition morning in preparation for their move up to Senior School in September. During the morning they learned about their new timetable and the different subjects they will study. They had the chance to work in groups to discuss what changes there might be and how their normal school day in Senior School will be different from Juniors. Senior prefects spent time with the students giving them firsthand experience of life as a Senior School student. Prefects led guided tours around the school so that the students could meet staff and see the specialist rooms and subject teaching rooms that they will study in next year. The overall aim of the

morning was to ensure that their transition into the Senior School is a smooth and enjoyable experience for them. Mr Peter Fazackerley; Deputy Head Teacher, explained that moving up from Juniors into Seniors is a massive and sometimes daunting step for the students. “We want to make sure that we fully

support the students with any worries or concerns they might have as they prepare for the next chapter of their learning journey at Wingate,” he said. Earlier in the day the Year

Health chiefs to warn public over La Palma spends 5.2 heat risks with new alerts million euros on “vital” fire damage projects people with chronic conditions.” The Plan for Prevention of the Effects of High Temperatures on People’s Health establishes four different levels of health risk, depending on the expected temperatures and their duration in time: If the maximum and minimum temperatures foreseen do not reach the established threshold, it corresponds to the ZERO LEVEL or absence of risk (which is represented by the colour green).

EALTH chiefs in the Canary Islands have launched a new system to alert people to very hot (or cold) conditions which could affect their well-being. It is aimed at the groups most vulnerable to intense heat such as children, the elderly and people with chronic conditions and came into force on June 1st. New alerts will be issued if the temperature soars past 32 degrees maximum and 24 minimum degrees. There will be varying colour bands to show the risks. The new campaign has been devised by the Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands and there will be full liaison with all the emergency centres in the archipelago. Public Health will also give information to the media to

provide useful advice and practical measures to prevent the effects of exposure to high temperatures. All available information will also be disseminated through the network channel www.canariassaludable.org “These awareness-raising activities will aim to increase the individual prevention capacity of dealing with heat by applying measures that are easy and accessible,” a spokesman explained. “It is a control system aimed at the entire population, but it is specially designed for the population groups most vulnerable to intense heat such as the elderly, children and

The LEVEL ONE or low risk (yellow ) is activated when the weather forecasts indicate temperatures equal to or greater than 32 of maximum and 24 of minimum (in the case of the Canary Islands) for one or two days. LEVEL TWO will be activated if there is a medium risk (orange), if the expected duration is three or four days. LEVEL THREE or high risk (red ) is activated if the expected duration reaches five days or more of expected duration.

When high temperatures occur remember: Drink water and fluids frequently, even if you do not feel thirsty and independent of your physical activity. Do not abuse drinks with caffeine, alcohol or large amounts of sugar, as they can cause loss of body fluid. Although anyone may have a heat related problem, pay special attention to: infants and toddlers, elderly (especially if they live alone) and people with chronic diseases (cardiac, pulmonary, renal, diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and mental illness ). Stay as long as possible in cool, shaded or heated places, and cool off whenever you need to. Try to reduce physical activity and avoid outdoor sports during the hottest hours (from 12.00 to 17.00). Wear light and loose clothing. Never leave anyone in a parked or closed vehicle (especially children, the elderly or the chronically ill). In case of prolonged exposure to heat and symptomatology that lasts more than one hour go to a health centre or ring 112. Keep your medicines in a cool place; Heat can alter its composition and effects. Make light meals that help replenish salts lost through sweat (salads, fruits, vegetables, juices, etc.).

Health campaigners criticise Canary waiting lists

“SEEK MONEY”

H

EALTH campaigners have criticised the waiting list for surgical specialities in the Canary Islands as “intolerable”.

The Association for the Defence of Public Health of the Canary Islands says “enough is enough” and has called on the allocation of more money. The group has also likened today’s situation to the “era of

Mrs Thatcher when she converted a health service which was the best in the world into chaos”. The association claims 150,675 patients are waiting for consultations for surgical

HORRENDOUS BLAZE

specialities. It has criticised the different administrations of the Canary Islands for constantly linking the situation to an historic debt and failing to meet the gap. The association says there are “too many holes” in the Canary health system which are leaking resources to the private sector. As an example,

the Association recalls that public beds have not been built in Tenerife since the 1980s. “The time has come to say enough is enough; if there is a problem of funding, seek money, “ says the association. It has also urged the public “wake up”, because “sufferers can be becoming collaborators of this situation.”

A Palma has almost completed more than five million euros worth of projects in the areas most affected by the devastating forest fire in the summer of 2016. Work has been carried out in areas where there is a clear risk for the safety of the population due to the loss of vegetation and the consequent possibility of runoff during the months of adverse weather conditions. Of 14 projects planned, 13 have been completed. The financing of works valued at 5,201,017 euros has been made by the Canary Islands Development Fund, FDCAN, at 80 per cent, while the remaining 20 per cent has been contributed by the Cabildo itself. In many cases, the tasks have been ver y important engineering works, and have been developed in the municipalities of El Paso, Fuencaliente, Villa de Mazo and Los Llanos de Aridane. The horrendous fire was started when a hippy living rough burnt his toilet paper in the open countryside. An environmental services officer who helped to fight the

blaze lost his life. More than 1,000 properties had to be evacuated as the emergency services spent five days containing the flames and 5,000 hectares destroyed. Cabildo president, Anselmo Pestana said: “We are very pleased to see some excellent engineering works completed that we were concerned to execute quickly, since the historical experience in La Palma in terms of damage caused by the runoff or floods in areas affected by fires has become tragic,” Accompanied by the Minister of Infrastructure, Jorge González, and the Mayor of Fuencaliente, Luis Román, the Cabildo’s president recently visited one of these works: the one located in the upper area of the Las Indias district. The man responsible for starting the blaze has since been imprisoned for three and a half years.

CANARY MILESTONE

Seven island Medics urge people to learn record for Blue anti-choking techniques to Flag beach save a life awards E MERGENCY medics in the Canaries are urging people to take heed of how to deal with someone who is choking as it could save their

life.

T

HE Canary Islands have won 54 Blue Flag awards on the 30th anniversary of their participation in the prestigious beach awards.

This 2017 edition also proved the first time ever that all seven islands have got a flag. The tally of 49 is two more than last year and there are five for marinas. In total, 29 municipalities in the Canary Islands have been awarded the Blue Flag that distinguishes those beaches and marinas that meet the criteria of excellence in bathing water quality, comply with environmental regulations, and have adequate sanitary and safety infrastructure to guarantee the health and

safety of users. Tenerife has obtained 12 Blue Flag awards, Gran Canaria 16, Lanzarote five, Fuerteventura 8, La Palma 5, La Gomera 2 and one for El Hierro. In the sports ports, Gran Canaria has won two Blue Flags, Lanzarote one and Tenerife two awards. In addition to the awards obtained by beaches and marinas, the Canaries obtains this year four distinctions for Blue Flag Centres and four distinctions for Blue Paths.

TWO ARRESTED

Cocaine found hidden in socks

P

OLICE have arrested two men in Gran Canaria after discovering cocaine and cash hidden inside socks in a car.

One of the suspects, aged 38, has police records; the other, aged 26, had none. The arrests were made in Las Palma after officers first stopped the vehicle and found the driver did not have a valid driving licence because of having too many points on it. At first, the driver had tried to evade the police but was stopped. A search of the car revealed 44.9 grams of cocaine and 664 euros in cash, hidden in the interior of socks under one of the seats. The two were arrested for alleged drug trafficking.

The alert follows a frightening incident in Gran Canaria when a 51-year-old woman got a piece of meat lodged in her airways. It took 30 minutes to resuscitate her but she survived. The alert happened when the woman was eating a meal in her home in the municipality of Gáldar. A person with her immediately phoned the 112 emergency control centre where a doctor on duty gave instructions on how to help her before the arrival of medics. Doctors came from a nearby medical centre and an ambulance was sent out from Las Palmas. They continued with resus-

citation started by the person who had raised the alert and after 30 minutes, they were able to abstract the foreign body. Because of the lack of oxygen supply, she was put on mechanical ventilation. By the time the woman was on her way to hospital, she had already started to come round and was breathing by herself. She was admitted to the intensive care unit. The Canar y Emergency Service says incidents like this can happen in a split second during normal circumstances and it is important to know how to act. According to the SUC, the first thing to do when a person suffers a choking, is to remain

Car plunges down barranco

A

driver had a lucky escape when his car plunged 20 metres down a barranco in El Hierro.

The 27-year-old man was able to get out of his car just before it left the road and disappeared down the embankment. He suffered cuts and bruises to a hip and his face but these were not of a serious character. Medics, police and the Civil Guard were called to the scene on the HI-1 in the municipality of Frontera. The accident happened at 9.45pm.

calm and encourage the affected person to cough with force to tr y to end the obstruction of the airway, since when a person is in this situation, it is difficult to breathe, they cannot speak and can only communicate by gestures. Don’t give the person anything to drink as on many occasions when this is done, it actually makes the situation worse. If, despite repeatedly coughing, the affected person cannot catch their breath, phone 112. The second step to be taken in case the choking persists is to stand on one side and slightly behind the affected person, hold their chest with one hand and tilt it forward to then give five blows on the back, between the shoulder blades and with the heel of the hand, checking after each stroke if the foreign body has been expelled. If this doe not work, try the Heimlich technique. This

involves standing behind the person, with your legs separated to best support your body. Gently wrap both arms around their waist. Lean them forward slightly. Position your hands. With one hand, make a fist. Which hand you use does not matter. Position your fist below the ribcage, but above the navel. Then, wrap your other hand around your fist. To make a thrust, press hard and quick into the abdomen. Pull inward and upward as you press. It should feel like you’re trying to lift the person off the ground. Make the thrusts quick and forceful. Perform five abdominal thrusts in quick succession. The SUC says that if this is not succesful, then you should carry out five more blows to the back, followed by five more Heinrich thrusts and then alternatively until the obstruction comes free or the person falls unconscious.

SERIOUS OFFENCE

Rare parrots seized after sale offer over internet

New lease of life for iconic lighthouse INFORMATION CENTRE

A

man who tried to sell a pair of rare parrots via the internet faces a fine of between 3,000 and 200,000 euros.

Police seized the two adult specimens of Kramer parrots (Psittacula Krameri) following a tip-off about the advertisement. The operation was carried out by officers with the Environment Group (GRUMA) of the General Police Corps of the Canary Islands after the owner could not provide any proper paperwork. The law states that without the proper authorisations, it is against the law to sell any creature listed in the Spanish catalogue of invasive alien species. It is considered a serious offence. In this case, these parrots are considered to be harmful to the environment in that they displace other birds from their nests and cause damage to crops. The seized birds were taken to the Centro Cocodrilo Park in Agüimes, Gran Canaria.

T

HE iconic Maspalomas lighthouse on Gran Canaria could open as a craft shop and tourist information point from next year.

The island’s Cabildo has put the 1.7 million euro project out

to tender following problems with the original contract which was cancelled and work suspended. The works will see conservation and enhancement of the lighthouse which will also incorporate an ethnographic centre. The Cabildo had been trying since 2015 to unlock the difficulties with the future of the lighthouse, a listed building considered of great importance to both Gran Canaria and the rest of the Canaries. Millions of visitors of all nationalities spend their holidays in full view of the imposing building. Companies interested have been invited to submit their proposals by June 28th via the website www.fedac.org.

La Gomera defensive over Silbo saying: “It is NOT a Canary whistle!” HERITAGE CRIME

L

A Gomera has launched a passionate defence of its ancient “Silbo”, including a rap over the knuckles for all those who call it a “whistling language”!

The Cabildo is none too happy that “inaccurate” terms are being used to describe the way in which island ancestors used the method to communicate with one another across barrancos. It is also unhappy about what it describes as a “proliferation” of classes on the island which promote “whistling” as opposed to the proper way of learning the Silbo sounds. There are still many residents of La Gomera who remember and practise the art and it is now being taught compulsory to school-children in a bid to keep the tradition alive. The Cabildo says it is happy

that such measures are taking place but deplores the use of the wrong descriptions and stresses Silbo is NOT a whistling language. The Silbo language is so important that it is officially “listed” but the Cabildo believes anything which harms it can be considered a crime against heritage. The complaints are being led by the Silbo Gomero Teaching Project and recently received the full backing of all the political groups on the Cabildo. They say any promotion of a “whistling language” is far removed from the realities of Silbo. “ We do not share the

recurrent appearance of initiatives that seek to undermine the value of our heritage,” said Cabildo president Casimiro Curbelo. The Cabildo feels so strongly about the issue that it is lodging a complaint with the Canary Government and is asking for clear guidelines on what constitutes the real Silbo. “UNESCO only recognises a

single language that is the Silbo Gomero, something that does not allow the use of this as a Canary whistle,” said Sr. Curbelo. “There is no problem if classes of this language are taught in other islands, as long as the purity and legitimacy of this legacy is respected.” The guidelines pressed for will include all the phonetics associated with Silbo.

“SHAMEFUL” GANGS ROMANIANS ARRESTED

Lap-dancing customers ripped off by card scam

B

RITISH tourists visiting lap dancing clubs in Magaluf have been ripped off in a card skimming scam which has cost many of them 3,000 euros.

Police say two gang members have been arrested, both of them Romanian, in connection with the fraud which is believed to have netted at least 40,000 euros. They have confirmed most of the victims are Brits who only discovered how much had been deducted from their bank accounts or credit cards on their return to the UK. Officers have already raided one lap dancing club where the scam leaders took advantage of the drunken state of clients and their preoccupation with the girls. On some occasions, it was the girls themselves who falsified the amounts. “Cards were taken to make a payment but they were totally unaware of how much was being deducted,” said a spokesman for the Spanish police. The investigation is being led by the Civil Guard under the “Carduri” operation which remains open. Police say further arrests are likely as they believe the scam was also operated in other clubs in Magaluf, as well as tourist establishments, as part of an organised criminal group. The pair arrested have been charged with a continuing crime of fraud and illicit association. “The detainees charged for services that would not have been offered to the client, reaching in some cases over 3,000 euros,” said the spokesman. A number of the British victims have already been identified as they filed complaints on returning to the UK.

New campaign warns over migrant smuggling and dangers involved S PAIN has become the first country in Europe to join a new initiative aimed at raising awareness about the smuggling of migrants, the risks involved and the “shameful” people behind it.

Mexico was the first to champion the campaign which goes under the banner of #NegocioMortal and has a dedicated website on www.unodc.org/negociomortal In Spain, it is being led by the National Police and it is funded by the European Union. Details were presented in Madrid. “The smuggling of migrants, far from helping people in their migration process, has become a threat to the integrity and human rights of migrant groups,” said the director of the Police, Germán López Iglesias. “That is why the United

Nations campaign focuses on the figure of the trafficker and personifies it in a threatening way. “ The aim of #NegocioMortal is raising awareness and informing authorities and public opinion in general of the risks involved in the smuggling of migrants and

the links with organised crime. It is also intended to alert future migrants to the dangers of putting their lives in the hands of traffickers. To this end, the visual material represents the trafficker as a scorpion (smuggling of migrants by land), a

shark (by sea) or a bird of prey (by air). Similarly, #NegocioMortal reflects the economic and violence circle behind the smuggling of migrants and the links between this crime and others such as corruption, extortion, or arms trafficking.

ULTURE appears to be booming in Spain as the number of theatre and dance companies showed an increase in 2016, as did the number of stages and concert halls. The data from the Inventory of Statistical Operations kept by the State Administration Services reveal overall growth in the performing arts sector in Spain when compared with 2015. The number of theatre companies has increased in

almost all autonomous regions from 3,640 in 2015 to 3,743 in 2016, an increase of 2.8 per cent. In turn, the number of dance companies has increased by 3.8 per cent in the same period, from 964 to 1,001. The positive situation in the

sector is also reflected by an increased number of stage facilities. The number of stable theatres increased in 13 autonomous regions, from 1,569 in 2015 to 1,630 in 2016. This figure represents 3.5 such facilities per 100,000 inhabitants. In turn, the number of concert halls has increased from 537 in 2015 to 541 in 2016, which represents 1.2 per 100,000 inhabitants.

SHOP’S COMPLAINT

60-year-old Brit has been arrested in Gibraltar for possessing more than 100 images of children as young as three.

The suspected paedophile was caught after he went to a computer shop in La Línea de la Concepción and asked them to make a back-up of files on a tablet, laptop and Smartphone. Staff were horrified to find they contained over 100 videos and photographs of child pornography and called in the

police. “The material intervened showed numerous images of minors, aged between three and 15, with a marked sexual character,” said a spokesman for the Spanish police. The 60-year-old Brit was living in Gibraltar and has appeared before a local court charged with the possession

of child pornography. The spokesman confirmed: “Agents of the National Police have arrested a British citizen - 60 years old and resident in Gibraltar - in La Línea de la Concepción (Cadiz) and alleged to be responsible for a child pornography offence. “ “The detainee held more than 100 photographs and videos of paedophile material on his computer and other electronic devices. “

Transport Spain pledges continued authorities issue crackdown on Jihadi activists new alert over train surfing PORTUGAL AGREEMENT

S

PAIN has stressed the importance of strengthening cooperation with Portugal to combat Jihadi terrorism and violent radicalisation.

The issue was high on the agenda when Minister for Home Affairs, Juan Ignacio Zoido, attended a bilateral meeting with the Portuguese Minister for Internal Administration, Constança Urbano de Sousa.

Sr. Zoido said he is firmly committed to stepping up joint efforts by Spain and Portugal and further developing those efforts in areas that require a particular understanding and mutual trust, such as the fight against

terrorism. In this regard, he highlighted the great work and effort being made by the Spanish State law enforcement agencies in terms of the fight against Jihadi terrorism. The Spanish Minister for Home Affairs stressed that, since their last bilateral meeting in Seville in February, the Spanish National Police Force and Spanish Guardia Civil have carried out 18 operations in just three months and arrested 26 alleged Jihadi terrorists, the most recent arrest taking place on May 23rd in Madrid. Juan Ignacio Zoido told his Portuguese counterpart that a total of 230 police operations against Jihadi terrorism have been carried out in Spain since 2004, leading to 771 arrests. Furthermore, since 26 June 2015, the year in which the Spanish Ministry of Home

Affairs raised the CounterTerrorism Alert Level to level 4 (Spanish acronym: NAA), the law enforcement agencies have arrested a total of 164 Jihadist terrorists in operations carried out in Spain and abroad, and a total of 212 since the start of 2015. He proposed that the two counter-terrorism centres endeavour to build closer ties while maintaining the usual channels for the exchange of information and cooperation that already exist between the Portuguese and Spanish police forces. At this meeting, Juan Ignacio Zoido told his Portuguese counterpart that Spain is particularly concerned by the terrorist threats from the Sahel region and Libya, as well as from other conflict zones from which Jihadi combatants return, mainly Syria and Iraq.

Porsche thief gets quite a shock!

TODDLER PASSENGER

A

thief who stole a 100,000 euro Porsche Cayenne from uptown Marbella got more than he bargained for - there was a BABY in the back seat! The horrified mother had stopped outside her husband’s business to drop something in and left the keys in the luxury car for a split second. However, the thief only needed that opportunity to jump into the driving seat and speed

away, oblivious of the tiny passenger strapped into the back! The distraught woman called the emergency services when she returned to find both the Porsche and her 13-month-old toddler gone.

An alert was then issued across the area, as well as neighbouring police zones, saying: “Porsche Cayenne Garnet, from Marbella to Estepona. It seems that it has been stolen with an oversight. The important thing: a minor is inside the vehicle. Important, I repeat, a minor inside.” Roadblocks were on the point of being set up when the stolen car was found - just 200

metres or so from where it was taken with the baby boy still safe and sound inside. “He was oblivous to everything that had happened!” a police spokesman told Spanish newspaper Sur.es Marbella police say they think the thief got such a shock when he looked over his shoulder and realised there was a baby on board that he panicked and ran off.

ARNINGS about the lethal dangers of train surfing have been repeated after a 13-year-old youth had both legs sliced off after a metro accident. Other shocking videos have been emerging of youngsters riding between carriages and sitting on fenders during journeys. The latest teenager seriously injured fell on to the lines off the buffers and only just managed to drag himself clear from another oncoming metro which would almost certainly have killed him. He lost both legs just below the knee and was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after passengers heard his cries for help. The horrific incident happened on the Madrid metro near the Sierra Guadalupe station. Metro chiefs have continously warned youngsters NOT to follow the craze, with a service spokesman telling the Spanish press the accident happened as a result of “an absolutely forbidden circumstance.” Witnesses have reported seeing the boy on the station just as the doors of one of the trains pulled away with its doors closed. He is said to have jumped up on to the coupling fenders where other youths have been frequently caught on camera. On the same night, a video showing two youths standing on the metal connections was shared on the social networks but it is not thought to show the victim. They were said to be laughing and joking but ran away when the train stopped and they noticed they had been filmed on a mobile phone. Train companies admits the practice of train-riding is a “big problem” which they are trying hard to address.

Gang sent cocaine to Spain impregnated in clothes

HUMAN COURIERS

P

OLICE have dismantled a network of narcos who introduced cocaine into Spain impregnated in the luggage of “human couriers”.

The gang coerced people in South America, promising them a better future in exchange for drug runs. “These “couriers” embarked on commercial flights, mostly from Sao Paulo (Brazil), paid by the organisation,” said a police spokesman. “The final destination of the cocaine was different Spanish provinces such as Madrid, Barcelona or Pontevedra.” The substance was extracted, adulterated and prepared for sale by a chemist in a clandestine laboratory in the Madrid locality of Torrejón de Ardoz. As part of the operation, police dismantled two marijuana crops in Tarrassa and Premiá de Mar (Barcelona), with more than 400 plants and 14.5 kilograms of marijuana buds. Twelve people have been arrested in Pontevedra, Madrid, Barcelona and Gijón. The investigation was launched after a woman flying in to Spain from Madrid was stopped at Madrid airport carrying a suitcase with six kilos of cocaine impregnated into clothes. A few weeks later, the ringleader was arrested as he travelled on a bus with a suitcase full of drugs which he had picked up at the same airport.

Fugitive British Spain continues couple found hiding tourism boom with in tiny shed record four months S BRITS SOAR

SEX OFFENCES

A

N on-the-run British couple who sold their young daughters for sex were arrested in Spain after being found hiding out in a tiny

shed.

The man and woman, aged 54 and 59, used to live in Mallorca but fled the island after their sentence and had spent months evading the police. They had been convicted in 2016 of selling their under-age daughters for sex to a a man they knew. The offences dated back to 2009. Members of the Civil Guard

found the couple living in a small shed on the edge of a farm in the district of Cártama in Malaga. They have been identified by the police only as T.L.D. 54 years old and B.S.D. aged 59, both of British nationality. The fugitive pair were arrested under a European Arrest Warrant following their

conviction for the sexual abuse of minors. Police believe they had been living in the shed for some time in order to evade justice. A spokesman for the Spanish Civil Guard said: “The facts go back to the year 2009 when the couple offered their under-age daughters to have sexual relations with a person, known tp them, in exchange for an economic benefit, the reason why they were convicted in the year 2016 for the crime of sexual abuses to minors.” “After the sentence, those now detained fled the island of Mallorca where they lived to avoid their entry into prison, being located by agents after several months of searches.” ”The marriage remained hidden during this time in a shed located on a farm on the outskirts of Cártama.” The couple have since appeared before a court and remanded in prison.

PAIN received nearly 20 million tourists in the first four months of this year, latest figures have revealed.

The 19.99 million tally of inbound tourists is a record high, according to the FRONTUR - Tourist Movements at Borders survey, prepared by the National Statistics Institute. This figure represents an increase of 11.6 per cent on the first four months of 2016 and consolidates the path of growth recorded in the year to date for inbound tourists to Spain. Among the main emitting markets, the United Kingdom stands out with the arrival of close on 4.4 million tourists (up 9.6 per cent). This is followed by Germany, with more than 2.8

million tourists (up 11.2 per cent), and France, with 2.8 million tourists (up 6.9 per cent). The Canary Islands maintained its leading position in terms of inbound tourists with more than 4.9 million arrivals for the first four months of the year (up 9.4 per cent), followed by Catalonia, with 4.7 million inbound tourists (up 8.4 per cent) and Andalusia, with almost 2.9 million tourists (up by 10.7 per cent). As regards the month of April 2017, Spain received 7.1 million inbound tourists, 16 per

cent up on the same month of 2016. The United Kingdom was the main emitting market, with 1.52 million tourists, a seven per cent increase on the figure for last April. This was followed by France, with 1.14 million tourists (up 4.8 per cent), and Germany, with 1.12 million (up 29.1 per cent). Due to Easter Week falling in April this year and March last year, also worthy of mention is the analysis of the joint period MarchApril. This shows an increase of 11.7 per cent in the number of inbound tourists on the same two months of last year.

ORRIFIED tourists called in the police when they saw what they thought was several men carrying a body late at night near a popular marina.

Officers suspected something fishy was going on and they were right! It wasn’t a corpse that was being carried, wrapped in a blanket - it was a 111 kilo blue fin tuna! National police in Marbella, Spain were alerted to a possible murder by party revellers in the lively port of Puerto Banus. They received a call just before midnight to report the suspicious behaviour. The men were said to be “car r ying something that looked like a corpse” so several officers went to the scene to speak to witnesses. The “body” had apparently been unloaded from a pleasure boat at the port but when police looked inside, it turned out to be the giant fish! At 111 kilograms, it weighed more than an average man and was just as tall. According to the police, the people seen were two fishermen who had been out illegally fishing and requested the help of two friends. The tuna was eventually found in the cold storage room of a local restaurant. The four men all face prosecution for an illegal catch as the bluefin tuna is an endangered species and protected by law. The tuna, meantime, made its way to an old folks’ home as a special lunch treat.

Citroen’s C3 is full of flair

WHEN IS A TAXI NOT A TAXI?

W

E all know and can identify a legal taxi as it displays the taxi sign on its roof and a licence plate number as issued by the relevant Town Hall on the side. This can be identified such as LM 249 for example. In order to obtain this licence, the taxi and its drivers have to adhere to the laws applicable to Servico Publico, this is identified by a plaque normally displayed on the rear of the vehicle in white as SP. When you are taking a journey in a legal taxi, you should be safe in the knowledge that, if the unforeseen happens i.e. an accident or injury to you or fellow passengers the taxi has the appropriate and correct insurance and licences that would mean that you would be covered by the insurance.

The use of illegal taxis has been well documented over the years and numerous people have fallen foul to being on the wrong side of the law. A recent event in the mainland has highlighted this use of illegal taxis. A legal taxi had been booked and was subsequently cancelled two days before. The taxi driver became suspicious and decided to do some surveillance of his own. He calculated the appropriate time of arrival of his “fare” and waited. He saw the family arrive in a minibus with a fake transport company owned by a private individual. Clearly he reported this to the Guardia Civil who investigated and found that the company nor the driver had the appropriate paperwork and that the vehicle was not a licenced taxi, nor was the insurance correct as it did not cover “hire and reward“ i.e. carriage of fare paying passengers. The driver did not have a work contract for driving nor a rental contract for the property he was allegedly renting to the family. In accordance with the law the vehicle was impounded until such time as the legal owner provided the correct paperwork to the Ministry of Transport. Clearly in this case its highly unlikely that the owner will be able to do so, as they were working and providing services on the black market without legal work, rental contracts, licences or any relevant papers.

“A special or instinctive aptitude or ability for doing something well.” That is a perfect way to describe Citroen for what it has achieved with the latest C3 model. And the second meaning states “stylishness and originality ” – just like the new supermini. The third-generation C3 arrived in the UK in January and I have just been sampling a top-of-the-range Flair S&S version. There are three trim levels – Touch, Feel and Flair – with on-the-road prices starting at £10,995. Engine choices are three petrol – 1.2-litre PureTech three-cylinder with 68hp, 82hp or 110hp – and two diesel – 1.6-litre BlueHDi 75hp or 100hp. The C3 has been a little star for Citroen since its launch in 2002 with more than 3.6 million worldwide sales. And UK motorists have been responsible for buying 200,000 of the company’s bestselling model. The C3 stands out from its competitors when it comes to styling with the cactus airbump panels carried over from the C4. It looks a little like a small SUV with its bold stance and wheel arch extensions. And there are lots of

There are many “illegal taxis“ that operate in the mainland and certainly here on the island too. Some are very blatant and seem to feel that they are above the law, and then there are others who are more discreet and just receive money for petrol for such a journey; however, in the eyes of the Spanish Law this still constitutes an illegal taxi journey.

choices for buyers to personalise their models with three roof colours and nine body colours, providing a total of 36 colour combinations. The test car was a little stunner – in polar white paint with onyx black roof. There was an interior to match which included the Hype Colorado Ambience £380 option. The special grey/silver upholstery, with its orange and cream leather, along with coloured fascia and two-tone leather-covered steering wheel, definitely have the wow factor. The most powerful 110hp turbo petrol engine was under the bonnet of the test car and it was ideal in this little model. It left the blocks pretty smartly with a standstill to 62mph sprint time of 9.3 seconds and proved punchy enough in mid-range. Capable of a117mph top speed, the C3 was also quiet and smooth when driving at motorway speeds.

It was ideal in the city with easy, light steering when parking in tight spaces. Handling was firm and responsive as I put the C3 through its paces out in the country. It held the tarmac well at speed and the five-speed manual gearbox allowed slick up and down changes. This latest arrival is a car with lots of fun factor – and it isn’t short of high-tech either. More and more gismos and gadgets continue to appear in new models and Connec-tedCAM Citroen technology makes its debut in C3. This wide-angle HD camera is positioned behind the rear-view mirror and can take photos or videos that can be instantly shared on social media. It’s a handy dashcam if you’re involved in an on-road incident and has GPS that can also locate the vehicle. A seven-inch touchscreen in the middle of the

All legal taxis have to undergo more stringent inspections than normal cars and the drivers are monitored, licenced and approved to ensure consistency of service. All of this comes at a price and the taxi/driver has to pay a substantial premium to be able to carry passengers. This is after all is said and done their livelihood and therefore they are not treated in any way different to other companies/employees in different sectors. The collaboration between the police and taxi drivers and of course the public means that many more illegal taxis are being caught and with the implementation of new laws, the police now have the powers to immobilise the vehicles and impound them until such time as the owners has all the correct paperwork in order and the police are satisfied that the passengers being carried are being done so I accordance with the law. Whilst taking an “illegal taxi” may seem like a good deal and is often cheaper, you must remember that in the event of any problem you have no recourse or any way of making a complaint. With a legal taxi, as with all other legal business you have the right to ask for an “Hoja de reclamaciones” to proceed with any complaint you may have to make. Also, you are safe in the knowledge that should an accident or serious injury or death occur the insurance is correct and will pay out. Beware!

dashboard gives access to controls, including satnav, media screening, DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple Car and also allows voice control commands. All models get a high standard spec and those on my £16,425 Flair are far too extensive to list. Some of the comfort,

front fog lights. There’s 22mm more rear legroom than in the previous model and a decent 300-litres boot, extending to 922 litres with rear seats down. Citroen’s latest C3 is a colourful little car that is big on all-round quality as well as style – and comes with lots of fun factor.

The facts about kennel cough K

ENNEL cough is the common name given to infectious bronchitis in dogs. Just as in chest infections in humans, a number of different bacteria and viruses can cause the illness – normally a combination of both. It affects their respiratory system, causing them to cough.

What does a dog coughing sound like? The most obvious symptom of kennel cough is a forceful, hacking cough, which will often sound like your dog has something stuck in their throat. The cough can be dry and hoarse or productive, in which case it can be followed by a gag, swallowing motion or the production of mucus. It is distinct from a cough-like sound known as reverse sneezing, which is common in certain breeds and is triggered by irritation in the throat. This sound can often be mistaken for a cough, choking fit, sneezing, retching or gasping for breath.

Are there other symptoms of kennel cough besides a cough? In most cases, dogs with kennel cough will appear healthy apart from coughing. But some dogs will have a runny nose, sneezing or eye discharge. They should retain their appetite.

Is kennel cough dangerous or life-threatening? While a nuisance, kennel cough is not normally dangerous and is likely to need no treatment at all. But in puppies, elderly dogs or those with existing illnesses, the condition can be more serious and can develop into pneumonia. Depending on the germs which have caused the virus, some strains of the infection can also be more severe than others.

How can dogs catch kennel cough? Kennel cough is airborne and highly contagious, which is why it can spread through kennels quickly. It is also transmitted with bacteria on toys, food bowls or other shared objects. A dog’s respiratory system is designed to protect against the invasion of infection, but certain situations and environments leave them more vulnerable to illness. These include stress caused by crowded environments, exposure to heavy dust or cigarette smoke, cold temperatures and poor ventilation. Kennel cough has an incubation period of two to 14 days, and some dogs can be carriers of the infection for months without developing symptoms.

How is kennel cough diagnosed? There is no single test to diagnose kennel cough. Usually, if your dog has symptoms and has been exposed to a crowd of other canines within the incubation period, it’s adequate to diagnose them with kennel cough. Swabs can be taken to determine the exact virus or bacteria causing kennel cough – although this isn’t always useful for treatment. If there are suspected complications, radiographs can be used to assess a dog’s condition. If your dog is bright, perky, eating well and playful, you may not need to visit the vet. But always phone for advice if you are worried and advise the clinic on arrival that your dog has been coughing – it’s best if they wait somewhere other than a crowded waiting room. In general, it’s a good idea to keep your dog away

from other dogs while they are coughing.

Is there a treatment for kennel cough? In most cases, dogs will recover from kennel cough without treatment within three weeks, but it can sometimes linger for anything up to six weeks. To aid recovery, make sure your home is well ventilated and avoid using a collar and lead, as any pulling might aggravate the wind pipe further – a harness is a better option on walks. Should treatment be given, antibiotics can kill the Bordetella bacteria – the most common present in kennel cough cases. Cough suppressants and anti-inflammatories can also be given to make your pet a bit more comfortable as they make a natural recovery.

Can my dog get kennel cough more than once? Yes. There are many different strains of kennel cough – as there are among common colds in humans – so your dog can catch the infection multiple times. But if your dog has contracted the Bordetella bronchiseptica strain, he or she will typically be immune to reinfection for six to 12 months.

Should I vaccinate my dog against kennel cough? Some of the infections that can cause kennel cough are included in the basic vaccinations dogs need to have as a puppy, and subsequent boosters. These are canine adenovirus type two, canine parainfluenza virus, canine distemper, and canine influenza. But the most common bacteria present in kennel cough is

Bordetella bronchiseptica, which can be given as a separate vaccine – through nasal drops or infection. However, as there are many strains of the infection, it cannot guarantee protection – but at the very least should lessen symptoms. Vaccination is not useful in dogs already incubating kennel cough. The nasal vaccine for Bordetella bronchiseptica can be given when your dog is as young as three weeks, with it providing protection for about 12 months. It takes four days for it to become effective, and is considered the fastest method of providing immunity. The injection is a better option for dogs who may struggle with nasal drops. It can be done once your dog is one month old and will require a further dose a month later. Yearly boosters can maintain immunity. Although protection is not guaranteed, many boarding kennels require dogs staying with them to have the Bordetella bronchiseptica vaccine.

Caring for your mouse

M

ICE come in a wide variety of colours and live on average for between one and a half and two and a half years. They are fully grown at about three months old. Babies should not be taken from their mothers until they are five weeks old. Never attempt to keep wild mice as pets. Mice need the company of their own kind and, to avoid unwanted babies, it is best to keep pairs or groups of females. Female mice reach sexual maturity at five weeks old. A breeding pair will produce a litter every three to four weeks, with an average of eight to ten babies and females can become pregnant within 24 hours of giving birth. It is strongly recommended not to breed mice as you will quickly become overrun! Males tend to be more aggressive towards each other than females and have a stronger smell because their urine contains a musk-like substance. For this reason, females tend to be a better choice of pet.

Home comforts: Mouse cages and bedding The best home for your pet mice is either a wire cage with a plastic tray floor or a tank (glass or plastic) with a secure wire lid. Wooden cages absorb urine and tend to become smelly. Two mice need a cage size of at least 60cm x 50cm floor space, by 30cm tall. This gives them more than enough room to

stand upright. Mice like to climb, which wire cages allow, but they can squeeze through tiny gaps so spaces between the bars should not be larger than the width of your little finger. Put bedding on the floor to absorb urine. Dust-extracted bedding or shredded paper are best as dusty or scented bedding may affect a mouse’s delicate respiratory system. Don’t use cedar shavings as these can cause health problems. The cage should also contain a nest box filled with shredded tissue paper. Clean out the cage at least once a week – more often for males. Take out soiled and wet bedding but, to make sure your mice are reassured by a familiar smell, mix in a little of the old bedding (and if necessary, nesting material) with the new. Make sure your mice’s home is away from draughts and direct sources of heat and is somewhere they can’t be harassed or attacked by other pets.

Diet: What to feed a mouse? A small amount of commercial rodent mix is a good basis for a mouse’s diet

– but be careful not to let your pets get fat. Mice love sunflower seeds as occasional treats and may also enjoy tiny amounts of suitable vegetables and fruit, like carrots, apples and broccoli. Contrary to popular myth, mice do not need cheese or dairy food and some also react badly to peanuts. Clean, fresh water should always be available from a drinking bottle.

Common health problems to mice Mice are pretty robust but, because of their short lifespan, are susceptible to problems associated with ageing. They are prone to mammar y tumours and other tumours in places like behind the legs and on the neck. They may also suffer from respirator y problems due to bacterial or viral infections. If you are worried, seek veterinar y advice quickly – tiny pets deserve as much consideration as larger ones.

Exercise and enrichment for mice Mice love anything that allows them to climb, so make sure they are able to do this. If you use a tank, they will appreciate a fruit tree branch to climb on. Alternatively, you could suspend lengths of rope as climbing apparatus. Your mice will also enjoy going through tunnels, such as cardboard or plastic tubes.

HAPPY PETS Remember that by giving them these opportunities you are encouraging them to follow their instinctive behaviour. Some owners like to half fill a cardboard box with compost and allow their mice supervised tunnelling sessions

Do mice like company? Mice need their own kind as company and love to groom and play with each other. Do not mix mice with pet rats or other rodents, as they may be attacked and eaten. It is usually safe to mix female mice up to the age of about 12 weeks even if they are from different litters.

How to handle a mouse Although mice are usually friendly and rarely bite, some may be naturally more timid than others. Start by placing your hand quietly in the cage, holding a treat such as a few sunflower seeds. When the mice get used to taking this from you, teach them to anticipate food by making the same sound each time, like a whistle. To pick up a mouse, hold the base – not the tip – of its tail gently but firmly, then lift the back end gently and slide your hand under the mouse’s body. Children shouldn’t handle mice or any other pets unless they are supervised.

In the town of San Angel, two young men vie for the love of the mayor’s daughter, María Posada: Manolo Sánchez, who comes from a family of bullfighters, but would prefer to be a musician; and Joaquín Mondragon, who aims to impress her with his bravery fighting bandits. The rivalry prompts the guardians of the dead - La Muerte, the ruler of the joyous Land of the Remembered, and her frankly unpleasant husband Xibalba, ruler of the mournful Land of the Forgotten - to wager over which young man will win the woman’s heart. But Xibalba doesn’t play fair, and Manolo is forced to journey through both of their realms to prove his love for Maria. Directed by Jorge R Gutiérrez and co-produced by Guillermo del Toro.

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.

Why not try a touch of “picoteo”, the Spanish-style of eating where, as the name suggests, you pick a selection of dishes and share with your companions. You will find “El Calderito de la Abuela” in Santa Úrsula and it offers a unique and homely atmosphere combining Canary cuisine with modern creativity. This is already an award-winning restaurant and it’s not surprising that this year, it has again scooped a TripAdvisor accolade. The exterior of this property belies what you will find inside as it is full of charm and carácter and there is an incredible view of La Orotava valley. “A gem” is how it is described.

F you are looking for somewhere REALLY different to visit, eat, drink and discover, head for Tacoa in El Sauzal in the north of Tenerife.

This fascinating place is the oldest microbrewery in the Canary Islands and the second one at a national level. Is it a brewery, you may ask. Is it a factory? Is it a tourist attraction? Is it is a shop? Is it a restaurant? The answer to all these questions is, yes! This amazing place which brews craft beers was founded in 2001 and has proved hugely popular with all nationalities. Those who have already discovered Tacoa are full of praise for it. “One of the best dining experiences we’ve had during our trip to the Canary Islands and the only micro brewery we’ve found so we’d definitely recommend a stop here,” said one reviewer on TripAdvisor. “Deserves a visit to try the beers,” said another.

They married and they had a daughter. Eventually, Teresa decided to return to her native Tenerife but the couple weren’t sure what to do. And that is where fate stepped in.

With a big sunny terrace and beautifully designed interior, this lovely restaurant is just a stone’s throw from the bus station at the San Marino building (ie turn left at the bottom of the bus station and it is 100 yards or so on your left, in premises formerly occupied by the Heritage bar). In addition to the fantastic Sunday roasts, with "proper" roast potatoes, you will find the most gorgeous food, all home-made and great British cooking, including all day breakfasts, mouthwatering cakes, salads, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and rolls, home-made burgers, pancakes, ice-creams, evening meals and numerous varieties of teas and coffees served in china pots and cups. There are also many gluten-free and diabetic options.

This iconic restaurant in the heart of Santa Cruz is definitely a place to head for if you enjoy stunning decor and high-end cuisine but at prices you can still afford. The food here is best described as a slice of home-made cooking with the taste and touch of nouvelle cuisine. The emphasis is on quality, freshness and naturalness where the raw product is the star, depending on what is available that day in the market. They offers a special menu for celiac and can help create food for anyone with a specific allergy. Weddings, etc are also catered for and there is always a dish of the day. You will find GOM within the Hotel Taburiente, located in front of Parque García Sanabria. Their opening times are Tuesday to Saturday from 13:00 to 16:00 and 20:00 to 23:00.

Fusion is a unique restaurant which brings a much-needed fine dining experience to Amarilla Golf.

The Sunday lunch from 5pm is to die for and the steaks are the best in the south, with organic meat supplied from Los Abrigos. There is entertainment on four nights, including The Jersey Boys on a Monday and a fabulous new roof terrace where you can enjoy a drink, dine if you wish or hold a private party.

PAINTING AND DRAWING

Artistic students show off their new-found skills

S

TUDENTS from the municipal school of drawing and painting in La Orotava are showing off their new-found skills in a June exhibiton.

The Casa de la Cultura de San Agustín is hosting the show until June 25th.

The exhibition, with some 200 exhibits, was inaugurated by the Mayor Francisco

Linares García, accompanied by councillor María Jesús Alonso; director of the school, Domingo González Expósito and the teachers Ezequiel de León and Cristo Quintero. The exhibition, which can be visited from Monday to Friday from 9am to 9pm, also serves as the culmination of the present 2016-2017 course of the Academy which again had more than 100 people enrolled, aged from eight to 80s. In this school, directed by Domingo González Expósito, the specialties of drawing and painting are imparted, and there are many who continue afterwards and perfect their artistic learning. Drawings with graphite pencil and carbon, and others of composite or polychrome pencil, from the pupils of Cristo

Quintero between eight and 16 years of age, are shown in this exhibition, as well as the works of the pupils of Ezequiel de León carried out in graphite drawings and oil paintings. And at the same time you can admire the work of the students of the School of Alfombristas, with small tapestries. The School “Perdigón” is celebrating 21 years in the Casa de la Cultura and before that in the basement of the Town Hall for a few years but not officially as a school. The centre has developed during this school year different complementary activities such as cultural visits. Sr. Linares congratulated all the students for the quality of their works, but also for their involvement.

Tickets go on sale for La Orotava’s “Suena Festival” this September La Orotava has given early notice of its 2017 “Suena” Festival

T

HE popular event is being held in September but tickets for the various concerts are already on sale.

This will be the fifth edition and organisers hope they have arranged a programme with wide appeal. “The Villa looks forward to welcoming outstanding groups and artists of the national musical panorama, including three icons of Spanish pop,” said a spokesman. Renowned singer-songwriter Mikel Erentxun will perform on Saturday, September 2nd and will also be on stage at Teobaldo Power La Union and Café Quijano, where he will perform on Satur-

days September 16th and 30th respectively. All concerts will be in the aforementioned auditorium at 9pm. Tickets, costing between ten and 18 euros, can be purchased now through the tomaticket.es platform, as well as in the shops Casa Valladares (in La Orotava and Santa Ursula) and all establishments in the Canaries of Carolina Boix shoes. This festival is organised by Espectáculos Tenerife and

has the collaboration of La Orotava council, the Canary Islands Government and Tenerife Cabildo. Details were presented at the Hotel las Águilas by the Mayor Francisco Linares García and the representative of Producciones Espectáculos Tenerife, Mingo Rodríguez. The mayor said the concerts would be exceptional, giving people the chance to enjoy the best of pop and music. He said La Orotava was still

a cultural reference in the north of Tenerife and a meeting point for leisure and enjoyment of local gastronomy. Intense activity at the Teobaldo Power had boosted the local economy and led over the last three years to the opening of new restaurants and bars in the area. Any expenditure the council made therefore in culture was considered not as an expense but an investment. He also congratulated the organisers, Quique Ojeda and Mingo Rodríguez, for seeking the support needed to make this festival possible for everyone “because they can offer good concerts with affordable prices for different audiences.” La Orotava Suena was an initiative and a novel project that began its first appearance in 2013, with the objective of supporting cultural projects. Artists of the stature of Vanesa Martín, Miguel Poveda, Revolver, India Martínez. Merche, Los Secretos, Efecto Mariposa and David Demaría, among others, have participated in previous editions.

Fiesta memories of yesteryear

M

EMORIES of yesteryear are featured in a new exhibition in La Orotava which spotlights on fiestas and festivals of the past.

Local residents have contributed photographs and memorabilia which are now falling under the spotlight in

the old folks’ centre (Centro Municipal de Mayores) in the Plaza de la Constitución, nº 9.

The exhibition has been coordinated by the municipal archives section of the local council and can be seen until June 23rd. “This exhibition is a tribute to all the people who have been part of and collaborated in the

fiestas, as well as the photographers who have left these portraits immortalised,” said a spokesman. The exhibition is open from 9am to 8pm from Monday to Friday, as well as Saturdays from 10am to 1pm and Sunday from 4pm to 8pm.

“Opera for all” comes to outdoor stage

H

UNDREDS of people are being introduced to the delights of opera in a hugely successful initiative in Gran Canaria.

“Ópera para todos” or “Opera for all” is organised by the Teatro Pérez Galdós and the city council of Las Palmas. The idea revolves around transmitting operas via big screens in outdoor spaces and when this was first tried last September with Verdi’s “Otello”, it proved an enormous hit. After that, three more events were arranged in the plaza Stagno, one of which has already taken place (Rigoletto on May 27th). However, the remaining two are still to come, namely the opera “Werther” on June 24th at 8.30pm with a live connection from the Teatro Pérez Galdós; and Madama Butterfly on June 30th, also at 8.30pm, from the Teatro Real in Madrid. The organisers hope the initiative will appeal not only to those who have already dicovered this genre of music but introduce opera to the newcomer as well. The screenings have places for 500 people and admission is free. The transmission of the live performances from the Teatro Pérez Galdós has been made possible by TVE in the Canary Islands.

How to treat a stye Heat Sleep attacks To reduce swelling and help the stye heal: exhaustion and dreams, and heatstroke symptoms of H rare narcolepsy RARE DISORDER

Soak a clean flannel in warm water. Hold it against your eye for five to ten minutes. Repeat this three or four times a day. To relieve the pain, take painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. You can buy these in supermarkets and pharmacies. Don’t give aspirin to children under 16. Avoid wearing contact lenses and eye makeup until the stye has burst and healed. Don’t try to burst a stye or remove an eyelash yourself. This can spread the infection.

EAT exhaustion and heatstroke are two potentially serious conditions that can occur if you get too hot.

They usually happen during a heatwave or in a hot climate but can also occur when you’re doing very strenuous physical exercise. Heat exhaustion is where you become very hot and start to lose water or salt from your body, which leads to the symptoms listed below and generally feeling unwell. Heatstroke is where the body is no longer able to cool itself and a person’s body temperature becomes dangerously high (sunstroke is when this is caused by prolonged exposure to direct sunlight). Heatstroke is less common, but more serious. It can put a strain on the brain, heart, lungs, liver and kidneys, and can be life-threatening. If heat exhaustion isn’t spotted and treated early on, there’s a risk it could lead to heatstroke.

YOUR EMOTIONS

Living with diabetes

Signs and symptoms

Heat exhaustion or heatstroke can develop quickly over a few minutes, or gradually over several hours or days. Signs of heat exhaustion can include tiredness and weakness, feeling faint or dizzy, a decrease in blood pressure, a headache, muscle cramps, feeling and being sick, heavy sweating, intense thirst, a fast pulse and /or urinating less often and having much darker urine than usual. If left untreated, more severe symptoms of heatstroke can develop, including confusion, disorientation, seizures (fits) and a loss of consciousness.

What to do

If you notice that someone has signs of heat exhaustion, you should get them to lie down in a cool place (such as a room with air conditioning or somewhere in the shade), remove any unnecessary clothing to expose as much of their skin as possible, cool their skin –use whatever you have available, such as a cool, wet sponge or flannel, cold packs around the neck and armpits, or wrap them in a cool, wet sheet and fan their skin while it’s moist. This will help the water to evaporate, which will help their skin cool down. Get them to drink fluids – this should ideally be water, fruit juice or a rehydration drink, such as a sports drink. Stay with the person until they’re feeling better. Most people should start to recover within 30 minutes.

N

ARCOLEPSY is a rare long-term brain disorder that causes a person to suddenly fall asleep at inappropriate times.

The brain is unable to regulate sleeping and waking patterns normally. This can result in excessive daytime sleepiness ie feeling very drowsy throughout the day and having difficulty concentrating and staying awake. It can also promot sleep attacks when the sufferer falls asleep suddenly and without warning or cataplexy which is the temporary loss of muscle control resulting in weakness and possible collapse, often in response to emotions such as laughter and anger. Sleep paralysis, a temporary inability to move or speak when waking up or falling asleep, can also occur as well as excessive dreaming and waking in the night. Dreams often come as you fall asleep (hypnogogic hallucinations) or just before or during waking (hypnopompic hallucinations). Narcolepsy doesn’t cause serious or long-term physical health problems, but it can have a significant impact on daily life and be difficult to cope with emotionally. Many cases of narcolepsy are caused by a lack of the brain chemical hypocretin (also known as orexin), which regulates wakefulness. The lack of hypocretin is thought to occur because the immune system mistakenly attacks the cells that produce it or the receptors that allow it to work. However, this doesn’t explain all cases of narcolepsy, and the exact cause of the problem is often unclear. Narcolepsy is a fairly rare condition. It’s difficult to know exactly how many people have narcolepsy because many cases are thought to go unreported. However, it’s estimated the condition affects at least 25,000 people in the UK. Men and women are thought to be affected equally by narcolepsy, although some studies have suggested the condition may be more common in men. The symptoms often begin during adolescence, although the condition is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40.

B

EING diagnosed with diabetes, or knowing someone who is diagnosed with the condition, may throw up many questions about how it fits into your daily life, from how it makes you feel to managing diabetes at work or whilst you are driving. Sometimes it feels overwhelming – this is quite normal.

Your emotions One of the most difficult things to come to terms with is that diabetes is for life. In the weeks and months after being diagnosed with diabetes, emotions are often pushed to one side as you try to get to grips with new treatments and changing your lifestyle. Everyone reacts differently when they hear the news. You may be overwhelmed, shocked, afraid, angry and anxious. Some people go through a stage very similar to mourning – as though they are grieving for lost health. Some people hide these feelings but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are coping without difficulty. Over time, it is likely that you will become more confident in your ability to cope with everyday activities and the initial turmoil you may have felt should start to fade. Your healthcare team is there to give you emotional support, reassurance and help you to build your confidence in coping with diabetes. If you, your family, or friends are concerned about any aspect of diabetes, your healthcare team would rather know about it. If the worry is groundless, then you can be reassured. If it has some cause then action can be taken.

People respond in different ways to being diagnosed with diabetes – some to the extent that they feel like hiding it from ever yone. You may feel embarrassed and uncertain about how they will react, but letting people know can mean that you receive more support and understanding. Family and friends may be among the first people you tell and like most people they probably know little about diabetes – but are keen to know more. If you live alone, telling your neighbours about your diabetes may make you feel safer, especially if you are older or at risk of having hypos. A simple explanation to your housemate may help their understanding too. If you are taking part in sport or physical activity it is sensible to tell the person who is leading the activity in case any problems arise. There is no legal requirement to tell your employer that you have diabetes but by doing so it will probably make it easier to arrange clinic appointments. Telling your workmates may help them understand why you need to stop for a few minutes and do a blood test or treat a hypo, for example. Sometimes people face discrimination at work because of their diabetes but accentuate the positive – having diabetes now means that you are trying to lead a healthy lifestyle and that you will have a thorough medical check-up every year.

ARTEDENTAL in Puerto de la Cruz says yes to the Paris Agreement

T

HE planet is in mourning. Since Donald Trump announced that he is withdrawing the United States from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the world is more alone. Trump’s decision has created global anger precisely because the United States is the second most polluting country in the world, behind China alone. They are responsible for 15 per cent of the planet’s CO2 emissions. And not just at the corporate level. Any European visiting a rural area of the United States would put his hands in his head. Nothing to separate garbage, lights on at all times, large areas with an enormous amount of resources impossible to

consume, families who use disposable plates and cutlery at home so as to avoid washing them. A generalized waste. But not all is lost. The vast majority of the planet supports the Paris Agreement, signed by 195 countries. The basis of the agreement is that the signatory countries decide what greenhouse gas reduction should be achieved every five years from 2020. The first targets are therefore set for 2025. What it is trying to achieve is that the temperature of the planet does

not increase more than 2 ° C at the end of the century. Any higher increase is considered as catastrophic for the planet, according to the scientific community, and with the Paris Agreement in progress, it is expected to increase more than three. On a small scale, each house, each family can contribute to this Agreement. Governments encourage this behaviour, for example by subsidising the consumption of electric cars, promoting awareness-raising policies among their population or setting limits on corporate emissions. But even in the house of a single individual you can

decide whether to join the Paris Agreement in a personal capacity. Each person will do it according to their economy, time, belief and ethical commitment to the planet. Similarly, companies have a major responsibility. Small or large companies can serve as examples for this purpose, and even manage the situation with more awareness than some governments. Artedental, the Puerto de la Cruz clinic specialising in implantology, has always been an advocate of regenerations through autologous grafts (obtained from the patient), and in the absence of alloplastic or synthetic grafts. This means that they are in favour of the use of regenerative materials that are not of animal origin. Now the clinic’s board has put in place a series of protocols that support the reduction of pollutant emissions and that support the defence of the environment. Its director, Amaya Sáez, explains that the clinic’s commitment has always been “significant, but the latest news about the US abandonment of the Paris Agreement has generated a new impetus to strengthen protocols in the defence of the environment.” “Any contribution is worth it,” explains Amaya Sáez. First, they have implemented a massive reduction in the use of paper with the computerisation of unequivocal

consents of data transfer, informed consent of treatments and the delivery of documentation to the patient in digital format (X-rays, guarantees, reports or implant passport). “It seems like a small thing but it’s impressive how much paper a small business can use. Just the management of the invoices accumulates mountains of paper, all nonsense when the technology allows other methods,” Amaya explains. They also propose to reduce electricity consumption. “A dental clinic invests a good part of its resources in the consumption of electricity. However, today there are devices and applications that allow us to reduce the electrical expense. For example, the CBCT or digital scanner, digital radiography, autoclaves of the latest generation ... All this encourages less consumption with greater efficiency.” Precisely the digitisation of lightning tests reduces ionizing radiation and eliminates the use of developing liquids, considered as highly hazardous waste. Likewise, the use of led lighting was a requirement in Artedental since its inception. “Another important decision has been the acquisition of the most efficient and lastgeneration materials with the least toxic waste, such as monomer-free composites in

clinical practice,” says Amaya Sáez. Composite is a material that is used in a significant way in conservative dentistry, since among its advantages are the easy restoration and its great resistance, in addition that it resembles in great measure the natural teeth with a good customisation. However, composites may include polluting polymers or plastics, one of the largest residual materials on the planet. Another major problem in the fight against climate change is emissions from cars. In Spain, cars are responsible for 25% of greenhouse gas emissions. To combat it, Artedental’s board plans to install a quick recharge point in its parking lots for next year, and the company’s car will be for electric consumption. According to consultancy Deloitte, for Spain to meet its targets in reducing gas, it would need to incorporate 300,000 electric cars by 2020, and in 2025, between 1.2 and 2 million. Difficult goal, when in 2015 only circulated 6,500. Eduardo Galeano said that if nature were a bank they would have rescued her. We face the great dilemma of our time, whose resolution will define the future of the human being. For now, it is the struggle of the small against the giant, the individual against the unconscious majority. Just for now.

CHALLENGING TESTS

Entries open for 9km Running Trail

S

AN Juan de la Rambla has opened registrations for the third edition of its nine kilometre Running Trail.

This urban and mountain test runs through much of the munic+pality with varying degrees of difficulty between medium and high. This year, the event is on July 1st. The race has become somewhat of a classic in the sporting calendar because of the characteristics of the route. It is part of the festivities in honour of San Juan Bautista. The starting point is the plaza Rosario Oramas at 10am. The runners then take in the district of Las Aguas, followed by the Rambla de los Caballos and then along the coast to La Rambla. They will reach the Barranco Ruiz, following the footpath before going up, with some difficulty, until arriving at La Vera. The descent is then via asphalt before taking a new path that crosses the Risco and returning to the historic centre, finishing at the original starting point. All athletes who accept the challenge can register up to June 27th in the categories junior, general and veterans for a single price of ten euros. Entries can be formalised through the official Facebook of the test or in the stores Deportes Base Salud, Deportes del Castillo and Deportes Santiago. The collection of bibs will be available from 8.30am on the morning of the day of the test. The third edition of the Running Trail is sponsored by Fedes Ascensores and SAT Agriten, with the collaboration of SAT Pladimsa, Deportes Base, Isola, Fonteide, Deportes del Castillo and Deportes Santiago.

The initiative was organised by the local council’s sports department and the Canary and Tenerife Federations. The event, held in the municipality for the first time, attracted players from clubs all over the Canaries. Sports councillor Sara Cano Delgado highlighted the good reception the championships had received and the great atmosphere in the pavilion throughout the day, as well as the high level of skills.

Puerto stages sports camp for June and July

P

UERTO council’s welfare department, together with the Unión Baloncesto Puerto Cruz sports club, is organising the Inclusive Summer Camp that will grant scholarships to three children with a high degree of disability during the months of June and July . This camp will be held at the César Manrique School from June 26th to July 28th, from 8.30am to 2.45pm. The three young people will have qualified sports monitors and a teacher in primary education who will

coordinate the tasks and duties that they perform. In addition to the planned activities, there will be “numerous excursions outside the main enclosure, in order to change their environment and carry out activities that would not be possible

within a closed area, favouring the integration of all participants,” said the councillor for social well-being, Víctor Manuel Cabo. The camp will also be open to children between the ages of four and 14, who will receive scholarships from the Social Welfare Area with 30euros per child, and will have a monitor assigned for every ten participants. “They will receive school support during the course of the camp, helping their summer tasks as well as a special reinforcement in English with very dynamic and simple tasks; sports activities such as basketball, tennis, badminton and traditional games; crafts, where participants will face challenges; and excursions, which will promote the integration of all participants, “explained Alberto de Cabo, president of the Puerto Cruz Basketball Union. The prices and schedules of the Camp can be consulted in the web page of the club portuense www.basketclubs.es/ ubpuertocruz.

Soccer pitch contract helps disabled

E

L Rosario council has fulfilled a double achievement after awarding the annual main tenance contract of one of its football pitches to a disabilty group. Councillor for sports, Iván Armas, said: “It is a question of ensuring not only the good health of the pitch where our young people play but also the normalisation of people with disabilities, through the development of dignified and specialised jobs in

sports facilities”. The contract for 1,981.89 euros a year concerns the football field “Maximino Bacallado” and has been awarded to the Insular Society for Persons with Disabilities (Sinpromi). These services include

the cleaning and brushing of the entire surface, the cleaning of gutters with integral treatments and the revision of the boards and penalty points. It also includes a review of the irrigation system, control panel, water pumps and sprinklers, all with appropriate machinery and with the quality and guarantees that are required for all these treatments.

Guía de Isora honours its top sportsmen and women, clubs and organisers

T

HE third edition of the Guia de Isora Sports Gala, which awards the best athletes, clubs or events of each season, was held at the Municipal Auditorium. Lara Ascanio, one of the promises of the Canary Islands in bodyboarding, was chosen as the best female athlete. The young woman has competed with Club Punta Blanca since the age of 12 in different categories of regional scope. A few years ago, she made the leap to the national competitions, becoming champion of Spain of the bodyboard open 2016 and gaining third place in the Canary circuit of women’s bodyboard open. As the best male athlete, the jury chose Paul Santos. The Spaniard has been practising triathlon since 2009. In this time he has achieved important triumphs in different tests on and off the islands, the last in the long distance world championship ‘Challenge Samorin’ in Slovakia, which is why he was not able to collect his award in person at the gala. In the category of best sports promises, winners were

Ainhoa de la Calle Lentino and Victor Martín Pérez. Both practice Taekwondo and are members of the Juche Club of Alcalá. Ainhoa, aged 17, has been practising this martial art since the age of six and has won the gold in combat and silver in tulle in the Canarian championship in 2016, in addition to the nomination for best junior competitor. Victor Martin, for his part, won the gold in combat and gold in tulle in the Spanish Championship ITTAF TaekwonDo Traditional. Guía de Isora also wanted to reward from the outset the work of the clubs and the organisers of sporting events. According to sports councillor Jose Rivero, “the spirit of an athlete is often born of an individual concern, but is strengthened by sharing the practice with other athletes.” He emphasised the fundamental role of the clubs that constitute among all “the great family of the sport”.

In this edition, the prize went to the Club of Underwater Activities La Tixera. Formed in 2004 in Playa de San Juan, its members have participated in numerous regional and national competitions, winning the championship of Canarias at individual level and teams in several occasions, besides a championship of Spain. Several of its members have been part of the Spanish underwater fishing team and last season were champions of Tenerife and the Canary Islands; sixth in Spain and runners-up of the International Underwater Fishing Open. In the events section, the V edition of the Mountain Race was selected. In a few years it has become one of the most important sporting and family events in the Canary Islands, organised by the Club Tenerife Corre, with the aim of encouraging and motivating the local population to practise this sport in a natural enclave of singular value, as It is the mountain of Tágara; the area of Chavao and the natural monument of Las Fuentes. The gala also awards each year aprize for Fair Play in recognition of those who encourage participation, coexistence and respect for their opponents. On this occasion, it went to Athletic Alcalá. The team was awarded last year by the Tenerife Football Federation with the Sportsmanship Award and became the least sanctioned team of the first regional Canaries in the 2015-2016 season.


How to go about snagging after buying a new home in Spain LAWYER RAYMUNDO LARRAÍN NESBITT EXPLAINS WHAT SNAGGING IS AND HOW TO GO ABOUT IT AFTER TAKING DELIVERY OF A NEWLY-BUILT HOME IN SPAIN.

S

NAGGING is an informal expression used within the construction industry which is used to describe the process of defect identification and resolution on buying off-plan properties.

By Raymundo Larraín Nesbitt Lawyer

It is important that you ensure that if you are buying a newly built property that the snagging is finished to your satisfaction. Before making the final payment to a developer or builder, you should ensure your home is finished to your required specification. Normally one or two months ahead of completion, developers will give you notice to book an appointment, and allow you to check the property yourself. Good developers will always carry out stringent tests themselves, and use best endeavours to put everything right before legal completion. However, even with the best will in the world, sometimes things are overlooked only to be found faulty later. Ideally the inspection should be carried out before you move in so that the developer will have time to address all the problems before you complete. The main reason for this is that lawyers can practice a retention on completion (using the funds as leverage) until any flaws or pending works detected during the snagging are carried out to your approval. If you hand over all the monies at completion you lose your leverage to have the flaws fixed. Which is exactly why it is in your best interests to hold back your cards in this game and have the withheld funds acting as an ‘incentive’ to get the job done (to your satisfaction). This allows you to maintain the upper hand on negotiating. It should be noted that lawyers do not carry out physical inspection of properties (snagging lists); we only examine the associated legal paperwork. Which is why I always strongly advocate clients to engage the professional services of a reputable surveyor. I have badgered relentlessly in previous articles on the usefulness of hiring a chartered surveyor. In my opinion it should be mandatory when it comes to purchasing off-plan or rural property (in fact, any kind of property in Spain). The cost of a valuation survey will be largely offset by the problems that are picked up by a seasoned professional. This valuable report can be then used by a lawyer to know what weak points to watch out for and which are likely to give problems down the line. The lawyer will then use this insight to his client’s advantage knowing what should be negotiated and worded into a Private Purchase Contract, prior to completion, to better protect the buyer’s interests or else to practice a retention at completion and withhold funds to secure the satisfactory resolution of the spotted flaws. Off-plan Snagging Checklist Check for damp patches. These will become hands down the number one enemy of your Spanish property. Check for mould growths. Check for mismatched tiles. Check for leaking faucets. Check for flaked painting. Check for damaged appliances. Check for unsuitable drainage. Check that any shutters you have are secure, and if electric, that the switches work. Check for scratches and scrapes on the windows and on the walls. Below is a list of questions that you may want to ask yourself before completing on any new-build property: Is the plasterwork finished well and without cracking and is the paintwork complete?

Do the doors and windows open and close properly? Do you have electric, telephone and internet points as specified on the plan? Have all the electrical appliances that you agreed to buy, or that were to be included in the price, been installed? Has the tiling, grouting and painting been finished to your satisfaction? If your water has been connected, check that all the taps (including showers, baths, sinks and exterior taps) work and that the toilets flush correctly. If you have irrigation, does it work? Confirm whether water and electric will be and if not what date can you reliably visit the property with services connected. Most utilities cannot be contracted until after legal completion of the property and service providers vary as to when they can make the connections. Do not assume you will be able to use your property on the day of legal completion. Take a record of any faults that you find and inform the developer as soon as possible, or alternatively ask your lawyer to raise any problems you find directly with the developer. Don’t forget to take a notepad and a camera, if you have one, on any snagging inspection so that you have a reliable record afterwards unless you follow my advice and hire a professional such as a chartered surveyor. To close, and speaking strictly from personal experience alone, anecdotal evidence would seem to suggest that waterproof insulation standards in southern Spain (read against rainfall) are seriously found wanting when I compare them to their UK counterpart. I lived for five years in Edinburgh (read non-stop monsoon) and never once did I have damp patches or problems with rainfall. In southern Spain, on the other hand, where rain is scant, damp patches sprouted after heavy rainfall especially in the fall. Take it from me, you may want to keep a close eye on roof insulation in Spain in new-builds.

Boasting spectacular uninterrupted views of the ocean and Mount Teide and surrounded by 16,000 m2 of avocado trees, citrus trees and tropical plants, the house has a generously proportioned bungalow-style layout on the top floor with a large, modern farmhouse style kitchen/diner, utility room and professional standard cold larder. The center of the house has an impressive conservatory leading to two large double bedrooms each en suite and with dressing rooms and each leading out to separate patio areas. The conservatory also leads on to the main living room with its own modern fireplace for chilly days, panoramic window and shady veranda access. The basement of the property has a "bodega style" entertainment room complete with its own built-in wine cellar, self contained kitchen and garden access.

The basement of the house contains three rooms and two bathrooms and would convert to staff quarters or guest accommodation. There is also a small, well kept Canarian style house which is ripe for conversion to a separate guest cottage. The property must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
