There will also be a children´s play area, complete with bouncy castles and much more on the beach on Saturday, whereas the sports centre will be taken over in the evening by the second nighttime football tournament.

La Glea beach also become home to the “Orihuela Beach Cup” football tournament, with the children´s bouncy castle and play area returning once again on the Saturday. If music is more your “thing”, then Saturday the 3rd of August is definitely a date for your diary, as La Zenia beach becomes the venue for a concert by some of the best tribute acts in Spain, with music from across the decades, featuring Queen, The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. From the 9th to the 11th of August, as the Chiringitos Del Sol host the seventh Orihuela Costa Cup Beach Volleyball competition, whereas the second half of the month sees more Zumba at Barranco Rubio and Mil Palmeras, as well as the workshops for children, a musical dance spectacular of the Noche de Flamenco, the religious element of the Assumption of Mary pilgrimage, the Fisherman´s market, more night-

Monday, 15th July, 2013 time football and another Padel tournament. As we move into September, quite possibly one of the biggest events to reach the coast this year is the Spanish National Beach Volleyball competition from the 5th to the 8th, as well as the European Lawn Bowling Tournament from the 29th to the 4th of October, two world renowned events that will both raise the profile of the Orihuela Costa. Full details of all these events, as well as how to take part, can be found in a leaflet being produced by the town hall, which can be collected from the tourist information office. There is also a poster displaying most of the events printed in The Leader this week, so you can tear it out and put it on your fridge as a reminder. You can also call the tourist office in Playa Flamenca on 966 760 000, dialing extension 32/24, email the tourist info office on orihuelaplaya@touristinfo.net, or contact the International Residents office by email, residentes@orihuela.es, not forgetting you can simply visit the professional teams in the office who will be happy to offer any advice you might need. Many of these events may not be new to the coast, but the coordination of the dissemination of information as to where they are happening is something of a first, so it is hoped that even more people will be able to participate and enjoy the benefits that summer on the Orihuela Costa has to offer.

ELCHE RESIDENTS TO FUND AIRPORT RENAMING

Following the announcement of the cost to rename Alicante Airport, which is set to become Alicante – Elche Airport quite soon, a campaign to raise the 50,000 euro has already seen cash pledges from many different groups, companies and individuals, with a third of the money being raised in just five days. Although many people living in the town of El Altet wanted the name to represent their town, a matter which has become something of an urban myth due to the airport never actually being called “El Altet”, it would appear that the potential for business and tourism growth for Elche is what is swinging the decision to support the financial collection. President of the l'Associació per al Desenvolupament del Camp d'Elx (ADR), Bernardo Torres, has joined the donation collection with an “apolitical” opinion, as he sees the renaming as the perfect formula for Elche to appear on the international map, with leverage of more than nine million passengers annually who will see the name of Elche as they travel. With the arrival of passengers from new markets such as Russia, Hungary, Israel and Romania, the interest in what Elche can offer visitors, in addition to improving the city's position in the internet search engines, is crucial. Torres said that everybody knows that the economic resources of the municipalities are tight, and that the money should go to other, more important projects, rather than this type of expenditure. That is why they have created the facility for companies, associations and individuals to voluntarily pledge to foot the bill. In the first five days, they already collected around 14,000 euro, with a goal to reach the 50,000 target. This money will be used for changing the signs around the area, and by voluntary donations it means that the citizens of Elche do their bit to make it a tourist town, which requires effort and help. However, in the event of more money than the target being collected, then this extra amount would go to help Caritas and their food bank project. Also all those who participate in making a voluntary donation will be sent a form, Torres states, which will prove your donation to the cause which would also be tax deductable. Anybody wishing to make a donation can do so direct to the bank account which is, 0081 1017 66 00010432088.

CORVERA AIRPORT OPEN BY EASTER? The Murcia regional president, Ramón Luis Valcárcel, has announced with almost certainty that a new tender process will start this month for the running of the new Murcia Regional Airport at Corvera.

TAG YOUR OWN BAG Spanish airline Iberia has become the world´s first airline to offer the facility for passengers to download and print their own baggage tags from its website.

The MyBagTag service can be used on Iberia, Iberia Express and Air Nostrum flights on their domestic flights, soon to be extended to all European destinations. When a passenger logs on to the www.iberia.com website to check in, the system offers them the alternative to specify the number of items for the hold, and then download and print unique labels for each of them. The standard A4 piece of paper is then to be folded into quarters, which is then to be places into a reusable plastic wallet which can be collected at the airport. The aim is to reduce the check-in time for passengers even more, with many who choose to checkin on line still facing queues as their luggage requires separate passage through the process. The automatic system has been tested in recent months in a number of Spanish airports, and has given a 100% success rate, so far. The concept of MyBagTag falls into the recommendations of air travel body IATA, and their “Fast Travel” initiative, in which they want to see more customer participation in check-in, boarding, and incident-resolution procedures. In 2012 Iberia was one of only six of the world´s airlines to receive IATA’s Gold Fast Travel Award for its accomplishments in this area.

When asked if there are any companies that have already expressed an interest in bidding for the contract, Valcárcel said the he has “no idea”, but assumed emphatically that “there will be interest, because the airport is a necessity for this region and whilst necessary, it will also be profitable” Although dates have come and gone so far, the politician expressed his desire to see that the airport is fully operational to passenger traffic “by Easter”, to which aim he hopes “all is well” to achieve that. Last May, the Ministry of Public Works and Planning initiated a process of termination of the contract with the Aeromur partnership, on account that they had “breached the contract”. The future of San Javier still remains, with many officials now calling for it to remain open, even when Corvera is operational, but others argue that the military status of what San Javier hopes to achieve would conflict with a passenger airport, although many are confident that a compromise may now be reached.

DREAMLINER LANDS IN ALICANTE As reported in last week’s edition of The Leader, the Norwegian dreamliner, reg no. EI-LNA landed in Alicante last Friday from Oslo at the scheduled time of 9.45 am. Initially the aircraft is being used on shorter routes like O s l o Alicante before being put into service on long haul destinations to New York and Bankok. It received the traditional welcome for new planes at Alicante airport when two fire engines made an arch with their powerful water cannons. An interesting feature of Norwegian Air shuttle aircraft is that they have a picture of a famous Nordic personality on the tail fin and in the case of this Dreamliner it is Sonja Henie the famous Olympic figure skater and actress.

TENTH YEAR OF MAGNETS When Steve and Irene-Maria Campbell came to Torrevieja almost ten years ago they had a desire to start a summer group for children. Their initial meeting consisted of three sisters gathering together in the Campbell’s apartment and that first summer they had a total of eleven children through their doors. From this inconspicuous beginning MAGNETS has grown and gone from strength to strength. The following year they were given permission to use La Siesta Evangelical Church as a base and it has been held there ever since. Over the last ten years Steve and Irene-Maria have seen well over 170 children coming to MAGNETS, many of whom return year after year. A different theme is covered each year; 2012 took up an Olympic theme called ‘Run the Race’ with each child and helper receiving a ‘Gold’ medal at the closing ceremony. This year’s theme is Joseph’s Adventures in Egypt. The two hour programme begins at 10.30am on Thursday 25th July and runs every Thursday until 22nd August. What happens at MAGNETS? The clue is in the name:- Memory verse, Arts and crafts, Games, New people to meet, Eats, Talk and Songs. Children from 4 years upwards are welcome to come and join the fun, and one of the best parts is, it’s ALL FREE! If you want to find out more or need directions to La Siesta Church please contact Steve or IreneMaria by phoning 680257344 or 670633597, or email at sjmimc@yahoo.com

TORREVIEJA NEWS R OUNDUP

Various dignitaries from the local and regional governments joined Cruz Roja officials and staff for a presentation in Torrevieja on the life saving capabilities of teams working on the beaches in the summer. Whilst warning of the need to pay attention to the warning flags on the beaches, the drill was said to highlight the collaboration between the Government and the Cruz Roja in contributing to a safer coastline. In a presentation after observing the life guards at work, the Mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolón, explained that the Cruz Roja protect bathers in the city with the assistance of 75 qualified lifeguards in high season and 44 in mid-season, with an annual investment of 451,790 euro, also praising the life guards for “performing an outstanding job over the summer”.

At a meeting chaired by the mayor, Eduardo Dolon, representatives from Torrevieja’s Chamber of Commerce gathered last Tuesday on the premises of the New Tourist Information Office in Paseo Vista Alegre. Among the items discussed were issues such as illegal hawking and the liberalization of trading hours during the summer holiday months. It was stated that local trading hours are subject to the number allowed by the Generalitat Valenciana but they should be increased in order to compete with the malls of Orihuela Costa, however the representatives from Los Verdes and los Comerciantes de la Plasa abstained from the vote. There were also discussions regarding the support given to larger entities over that of smaller, local businesses, which the mayor, eduardo Dolón, is being urges to rectify and make fair for everybody concerned, not simply bowing down to the demands of larger stores at the expense of local traders. The Los Verdes green party have complained that the city has paralyzed dozens of applications for a European Parking Card for people with disabilities, which they say is causing “problems for those affected and their families”, including fines for improper parking where they would be permitted under the scheme. The group says that there is an administrative problem which is causing unnecessary delays, but if it is to continue, then they have called on the mayor to issue a temporary card to beneficiaries, pending the full application approval.

A construction worker was injured in an accident when he fell four meters whilst working on a building on Calle Joaquin Chapaprieta in Los Balcones this week. The accident occurred about a quarter to ten in the morning when the structure on which he was working collapsed for reasons that are being investigated. The noise alerted neighbours who summoned assistance with fire fighters and an ambulance attending, followed by the Guardia Civil. The man was taken to Torrevieja hospital with an injury to his arm.

The pit bull dog that was stolen from the Torrevieja dog pound has been found safe and well, thanks to the collaboration between the Guardia Civil, the Tarracos Bull association, the pound themselves and the many people who shared the appeal through social networks. The police have arrested the suspected thief, a woman of Lithuanian nationality, who had requested information on the dog in the kennel the day prior to the disappearance. She now faces a fine of 720 euro, plus costs, and the dog has been returned to the municipal pound.

TIME TO FINALLY DEAL WITH ILLEGAL STREET TRADERS

The mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolón, called an emergency meeting with the top commanders of Local Police and Guardia Civil to coordinate urgent action plan to deal with the plague of “looky looky” men on the streets of Torrevieja. A number of police officers have been injured recently, as well as vehicles damaged, after the city´s most recent solution to the problem being a promise to fine those who purchase goods, rather than dealing with the source of the problem. The illegal traders have been defended by some as simply “trying to earn a living”, by selling their counterfeited goods, a crime which is being dealt with in every geographical area in Torrevieja before now, but has had a considerable effect on the town centre, with many people stating that they are too scared to go into the city because of the lack of action by the police. Having already attended a meeting with the government delegate of Valencia, Paula Sánchez de León, in her visit to La Mata, the Mayor has announced the launch of “all necessary means” to start a major emergency plan with reinforcements of the police, after serious altercations have been repeated on the promenades of Torrevieja. Dolón has now expressed a clear mandate to the Local Police and the Guardia Civil to join forces, and in to curb the illegal sales in order to end a conflict that has been repeated too often. The mayor has said he will not allow this situation to continue and demanded greater involvement of all security forces to ensure the safety of residents and tourists enjoying the summer in the city of Torrevieja. However, although applauding the action now, many critics still claim that had the situation been dealt with earlier, as it has been everywhere else, rather than the foolish plans of the Torrevieja town hall, the situation would never have escalated to the level is has.

A WEDDING ON THE BEACH So, where would you like to get married? OK, you are already married, don’t want to get married, or unlikely to be asked to get married. Let’s not let detail get in the way of a good story. In the old days, of course, a wedding meant a trip to the local registry office if you were a film star, eloping, a criminal, or just a cheapskate. Alternatively, you could go for the full bells and whistles routine, penguin suits and top hats, together with a gorgeous bride and bridesmaids, all resembling large, fluffy meringues, for that special day of your dreams. One of the most unusual weddings that I have witnessed was a few years ago, whilst sitting in a bar in Ibiza overlooking a very beautiful beach. Those of you who are familiar with the music from Cafe del Mar will know what I am taking about when I refer to the most incredible sunset accompanying both cocktails and great music. On this particular evening, an unusual wedding was also taking place on the beach below our cafe bar. Indeed, we were two of the uninvited guests and remain deeply penitent to this very day for attending a wedding in floral shorts. I shudder to think what the wedding photos looked like. The ceremony was simple, with not a meringue or penguin suit in sight. Indeed, in today’s parlance, I would say that the wedding was exceptionally cool. It was sincere, appeared deliciously simple, yet no doubt cost a fortune, which is always the clever illusion, indulged by those who really do have money. Fire-eaters, jugglers and exotic

dancers completed the illusion of stylistic perfection, which was clearly the theme of the entire event. I can also personally vouch for the generosity of the bride’s father, as we shared several glasses of rather lovely champagne with the happy couple, as did most of the holidaymakers on the terrace who, like ourselves, were uninvited yet enthusiastic guests and witnesses of the great day. It was the following day, when I was nursing a splendid hangover, that we were told that the newly married couple were film stars of some considerable importance. However, after all the beautiful champagne and canapés that generously found their way to our table, I am sworn to secrecy for all time as to the couple’s true identity. It is a promise that I intend to keep, as I understand that there are Mafia connections not to be trifled with. I mention this encounter, because I have heard that the good people working in the Directorate General of Costas in my municipality of San Bartolome de Tirajana in Gran Canaria are still refusing to allow couples to marry on our islands’ beautiful beaches. Permission has been requested, licences have been applied for and we have a marvellous opportunity to earn some much needed euros from the rich and famous who would like to take advantage of our wonderful climate and facilities for the perfect wedding. We have wonderful weather for most of the year and, as a bonus, we can also offer sand in a variety of colours. Although real volcanic sand is the norm, we can also offer brilliant white sand for those brides in brilliant white wedding dresses, imported specially at great

Robert Mclean and Rachel Spear tied the knot overlooking La Zenia Beach expense, both economic and environmental, from the Caribbean. In short, Gran Canaria has it all, and is the perfect wedding destination. Personally, I cannot see why our elected officials have not yet granted permission. After all, does it really matter whether one decides to get married in church, registry office, on the top of a mountain, in a lighthouse or on a beach? Getting married in a meringue dress, penguin suit, jeans or t-shirt doesn’t really matter either. What really matters is love, and the long-term commitment of support and care for each other. However, as a warning, couples intent on getting married on the beach should be aware of its close proximity to rocks. Do they really want a marriage to be on the rocks before it has even started?

STEALING FROM FAMILY! My 20-year-old brother came to stay with me for the weekend recently. Since he left I noticed at least £10 missing from my purse. I don’t want to get him in trouble with my mum as he’s can get quite angry and defensive but I really can’t believe that my own flesh and blood would steal from me and I want to do something about it.

I’M TERRIFIED OF FLYING My husband’s desperate to go abroad to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary but I’m terrified of flying. We’ve never left England and now he says he’s fed up of going to the same place on holiday and fancies a change. I really feel like I’m letting him down but I just can’t face the idea of flying. He says I’m being silly. Do you think he’s being unreasonable? Maggie, 55

as you and I both know deep down and as countless aviation experts will tell you, your fear is unjustified. Speak to your GP and ask if he can refer you to a specialist for help with this. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as well as other techniques can work well and help you to put this fear way behind you. Most airlines are more than happy to help in this satiation too and they, after all, are the experts when it comes to flying. Explain to your husband that you do want to change this and you’re prepared to get the right help but in turn, you need his understanding and support. With any luck, this time next year, you’ll both be sitting on a sunny beach sipping cocktails together. Stealing is a very nasty habit that, if left unchecked, can just get progressively worse. In this instance, I’d suggest that you don’t go to your mum but instead you have a quiet word with your brother. Explain to him that you know full well he’s been in your purse and that you won’t tolerate it! With any luck, being found out will be the short sharp shock this young man needs to show him that there are consequences! He may just shrug it off or he may be very apologetic but either way he will think twice before stealing from you again. Although it’s a sad thing to have to say, you need to take temptation out of his way in future! If this does happen again though, of course you’ll need to speak to your mum and see what she thinks should be done.

I’ve been desperate for my boyfriend to propose. We’ve been together 3 years but he still hasn’t popped the question. Now my younger sister has just announced her engagement after being with her boyfriend for seven months. I’m gutted and although I’m happy, I’m so jealous and am finding it hard to be civil to her. Even worse she wants me to be a bridesmaid but I don’t think I can cope helping her with her wedding plans when I’m so desperate for my own big day. Michelle, 23

There’s two issues here Michelle and both, if left unchecked have the potential to affect your life in a completely negative way. Firstly, jealousy is an irrational and destructive emotion that you’ve got to work hard at beating. You should be happy for your sister and ready to share her experiences with her rather than looking on with bitterness and envy. We’ve all got to live our lives for ourselves and focus on what we have rather than what we don’t have. The alternative is to let jealousy get in the way and potentially ruin your relationships with the people you love most. In short, you really need to get a grip, I think you can see that. The situation with your boyfriend is obviously not what you had hoped for but I cant understand what’s stopping you from popping the question to him? Its 2012 you know, women are allowed to propose these days! Think it over and work out if marriage really is the be all and end all for you. If it is, then propose and see what happens. If your bloke turns you down, you’ll have a simple choice to make wont you? If he says yes, problem solved!

LOCAL NEWS ROUNDUP In an attempt to reduce the number of abandoned animals found in summer, the Department of Health in Callosa de Segura has launched an information campaign under the title “Do not abandon your friend”, in an attempt to reach those people who have a pet but choose not to look after it any longer, either just for the summer holidays, or longer. They hope that they can encourage owners who are in a situation where they have to part with a pet to look for possible alternatives to abandonment, such as the local animal shelters or looking to neighbours to adopt them.

Monday, 15th July, 2013 A man, described as “elderly”, died this week on the beach at Moncayo, Guardamar del Segura, after being rescued from the water in an unconscious state. The incident took place at around 11:00 in the morning when Cruz Roja lifeguards were alerted to the presence of a man who had been pulled unconscious from the water by other swimmers, all attempts to resuscitate the victim failed. A SAMU ambulance team joined in the resuscitation attempts, but could only confirm the death of the man. A post mortem is being carried out to determine the cause of death.

historic centre and palm groves. The fair is 30 euro per journey, with the carriage capable of carrying up to 4 people who would share the price, which is considered a lot cheaper than similar tours in other cities around Spain. The latest statistics revealed this week show that the arrival of foreign tourists to the Valencia region has increased for the second quarter, with gradual peaking at a growth of 15.4%, with overnight stays also increasing, with a peak of 7.3% which was in May. Spending by these tourists has also increased, after a slight decline in March, now maintaining steady growth. The Baix Vinalopó fire station in Elche has received its operating licenses this week and is now a fully operational and legal facility. This is just one of around 2,500 licenses that the council has granted of the estimated 11,000 outstanding, in the two years since taking office. However, the difference with the fire station is that it opened in 1990 and has been operating ever since. Juan Molina, who delivered the certificate along with the Mayor, Mercedes Alonso, explained that “the station did not have a business license, but that does not mean we did not meet the requirements, it was just a bureaucratic problem”.

A dramatic fire in a fifth floor apartment on calle Doctor Gadea in Sant Joan, Alicante, saw two women pull an elderly man, who was confined to a wheelchair, from a spectacular blaze that could be seen for miles around. Thanks to their heroic actions, nobody was injured in the blaze, which witnesses described as being like watching a film. A number of emergency teams rushed to the scene, including two ambulances and a fire ladder, with fire fighters able to control the blaze which they believe started in the living room and quickly spread to the balcony of the seven floor building. Elche has launched what they are calling a “pioneering initiative”, by offering rides on horse drawn carriages through the historic centre of both the city and the palm tree growing areas. Each tour lasts for 45 minutes, departing from the tourist office, touring the park,

Los Montesinos has become the home to a seismic monitoring station, thanks to an agreement reached by the Department of Agriculture and the Ministry of Roads and Public Works. The equipment will allow for better monitoring of earthquakes in the area, so that scientists can monitor the exact movements of the earth immediately. The data will also be recorded by the National Geographic Institute and published on their website, as well as that of the town hall.

THE COSTAL WALKWAY ORIHU ELA COSTA The biggest sector of the economy for the Comunidad Valenciana is stated to be tourism. Most of the Comunidad has excellent breaches many of which gained their coveted Blue Flag award again this year. The Politicians in Valencia have stated that all municipalities should ensure that the tourist sector is given maximum support to ensure that this part of the economy continues to flourish and thus provid income for large numbers of workers. Orihuela Costa has some excellent Blue Flag beaches which are clearly significant in enticing large number of tourists to visit the area each year. The type of tourism found here on Orihuela Costa is mainly “residential tourism”, i.e. where people return to a holiday home they own or are renting on a short term basis as the area does not have a large number of hotel beds found elsewhere on the Costa Blanca. Many people visit this locality because of its Mediterranean coast, the excellence of it beaches plus the climate. The Costa has a wide range of good bars, great restaurants and now a first rate shopping complex which also includes a casino and bowling alley. However, other attractions sought by tourist are more readily available in Torrevieja which has a theatre, Case de Cultura, Palacio de la Musica, the open air Eros de Sal, large discothèques plus the very large concert hall. Torrevieja has a rich cultural programme that delivers a wide and varied programme of events throughout July and

August. Orihuela Costa has no cultural programme although the coastal ratepayers are subsidising the citizens of Orihuela city to enjoy events valued over 900,000€ this year. In spite of these deficiencies one would believe that the coast and beaches of Orihuela Costa would be fully capitalised for the benefit of residents and tourists alike. It is well know that the Spanish love to stroll and virtually all tourist areas have a well used coastal walkways that are richly enjoyed by all holiday makers and residents alike. Orihuela Costa has an excellent coastline that would be a joy to walk along if only there was a completed walkway that was not interrupted by dead ends, barren land, poor and dangerous maintenance or even buildings! Considering how important strolling is to the Spanish way of life it is hard to understand why the promised Paseo Maritimo is still incomplete after many years of promises. The politicians in Valencia realise that the most important asset it has for the tourist trade are its breaches and the beachsides which is why virtually all coastal areas that attracts holidaymakers have invested in their coastal walkways. Why is it that Orihuela has continued to neglect the needs of tourists who are the biggest contributor to the wealth and economy of this area? Why it is that the pedestrianisation of a street in Orihuela City is seen as a far greater priority than the construction of the Paseo Maritimo that will benefit not just tourists but also boost the economy of the Costa? A cynical observer could draw

the conclusion that tourists do not vote in Orihuela local elections. Sandpiper The population of Orihuela Costa need to ensure their voice is heard and the only way to achieve this is to ensure that residents are on the electoral register and make sure they vote in local elections.

AROUND ORIHUELA AND THE COSTA A tender to fulfil the repair and renewal of 56 street lights in the La Florida and Campoamor areas of Orihuela Costa is being put to tender with the work expected to be started very soon. However, the 15,000 euro funds for the work is from an approved contract from 2011, which has so far not even been started, despite the money already being ring fenced for that length of time, now auctioned by the government team who are still reporting their disappointment that there are so many of these smaller approved works that have never been started before. The lights will be replaced with energy efficient and money saving equivalents. Electrical infrastructure work will also be continued soon which will see intermittent street lights turned off during certain times of the night, a project which had already been started but was halted. The complex nature of rewiring the circuits to allow a balance of lighting will mean the work will take a little longer to complete, but will result in more energy and money savings in the future.

Initial investigations reported that a burst pipe may have been to blame, but that could have been caused by an incorrectly fitted extension. Experts from the water and sewage companies are meeting with the town hall to address the situation and ensure repairs are carried out. An additional inflatable amphibious chair will be provided on the beach at Cala Capitán, which will mean that this beach on the coast can also be enjoyed by those with mobility problems. “Cala Capitán is already largely adapted for access, which makes it the ideal location for this kind of facility”, said Martina Schreurer, the Councillor for the Orihuela Costa. A tourist train has begun running around the Campoamor area, organised and financed through subsidy from the local retailers, which has been approved and licensed by the town hall.

The analysis of water and sand on local beaches has rated their quality as excellent. The tests, conducted by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and Water, were carried out during the week 1-7 July, achieving the same rating as last year. The tests were carried out on the beaches distinguished with the blue flag (Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cala Capitán, Cabo Roig, La Glea, Barranco Rubio and Mil Palmeras), as well as Aguamarina and Cala Cerrada. These analyzes are performed on a weekly basis by the Conselleria between 1 June and 15 September.

Projects for repairing various handrails and walkways to the beaches and paseos have begun implementation; the biggest element being considered is the extension of unfinished walkway at the Paseo Maritimo, where around 50 metres is yet to be completed.

The cause of a sewage leak that affected parts of La Zenia is being investigated, as a large amount of waste was seen pouring into various streets of the area. Numerous tankers and pumps were involved in the cleanup operation, which was completed in a matter of hours.

The Orihuela town hall is in the process of printing information leaflets detailing the summer activities on the coast, with a range of events covering music, sport and culture. Amongst the new highlights being introduced this year are theatrical guided tours of cultural interest, where a guide, dressed in authentic costume, will take visitors around various sites, providing guided dialogue in both Spanish and English. The Medieval Market on the coast is also an event that many are looking forward to, with the date for the inauguration set for the 24th of July.

The tourist office at Playa Flamenca town hall has been boosted by two additional members to their team, with two students taking up a work placement whilst they study tourism, gaining practical knowledge of the area and working with members of the public, whilst also bringing some new and fresh ideas to this already vibrant feature. The tourism department itself is now looking at ways to increase their profile, in particular in attracting more visitors to Orihuela, both the city and the coast, who may not have been before. Popular in many towns around Spain, the creation of a so called “Tapas Route” on the Orihuela Costa is being investigated for the autumn. As Martina Schreurer explained, “the biggest problem with this on the coast is that many of the businesses are geographically fragmented, so it is not as easy to create a route with them”. As a result, the town hall are also investigating putting on a bus link that could connect the participating restaurants, all of whom would offer a set menu for a very low price, competing for an award of being voted the consumer´s favourite. If any business is interested in participating in this, now would be a good time to contact the town hall to try to make this next initiative a reality.

The Valencian regional government has awarded the highest medal of merit to six Orihuela police officers, who all played their part in saving the lives of a 28 year old mother and her two daughters from a fire in their home. The incident occurred in January, on calle Congreso, when a fire took hold in the home where the 28 year old was with her 5 and 2 year old children. Without hesitation or fear for their own safety, the officers acted to save the victims, from an incident that could have had a catastrophic ending. The award ceremony took place in Altea this week, with the officers proudly displaying their recognition on their formal dress uniforms.

THOUSANDS GATHER FOR 21ST HABANERA ON THE BEACH About 7,000 people enjoyed the 21st Night of Habanera in Playa del Cura last Friday where they were entertained for just over two hours by seven local choirs. They included el coro Juvenil Francisco Vallejos, la Coral Nueva Generación, which was participating for the first time, la Coral El Nuevo Amanecer de

Torrelamata, la Coral Bella Torrevieja, el Coro “Cecilio Gallego” de la Asociación Amas de Casa, así como el grupo “Potalaspuntosemos” and la agrupación Brea y Sal. They provided an extraordinary show with many well-known Havana, to which the large audience thoroughly enjoyed singing along. The show served

as a prologue to the 59th International Contest of Habanera and Polyphony, which will be held from Monday 22 July at the Eras de la Sal Of the entire program, the one habanera that was especially significant was the interpretation of the popular "La Bella Lola" by Brea and Sal, as thousands of people waved their handkerchiefs in a gesture that has now become traditional. For the second year in a row the stage was set up on the edge of the promenade, overlooking the sea, with the audience seated on the warm sand. Organising Committee vice president, Councillor Luis Maria Pizana, said the whole program was "torrevejense flavoured" and it’s growing popularity was amply demonstrated by the ever increasing number in attendance. The evening ended with all of the participating choirs joining together to sing the Sea Shanty "Swallow of Love", which began with the start of the countdown to the beginning of the Great Contest of Habanera.

SOAPBOX CHALLENGE RETURNS TO GOODWOOD CHEAPER MOTOR FUEL BY NICK IRELAND ON SUMMER FRIDAYS With only one week to go until the 20th anniversary Festival of Speed (11-14 July) opens its doors to over 185,000 spectators, a familiar set of Festival favourite vehicles are set to return to Goodwood, with the Soapbox Challenge. More than 25 soapbox racers will make a welcome reappearance at Goodwood as part of the Festival’s celebrations of the finest, strangest and most iconic vehicles to have graced the 1.16-mile hillclimb tarmac over the past two decades. Through the Festival, Goodwood essentially re-invented four-wheeled gravity racing in Britain with the Soapbox Challenge, which ran from 2000 to 2004. The Soapbox Challenge was one of the quietest, yet most hotly-contested, events in the Festival’s 20-year history. The simple soapbox racer rules were powered by gravity, maximum dimensions of 170cm long by 75cm wide, with a maximum weight of 165kg, including the driver, and all for a total cost of under £1,000. Over the five Festivals in which it ran, Goodwood Soapbox Challenge entrants displayed some incredible ingenuity, along with much bending of the rules, including some of the participating F1 teams allegedly wind tunnel testing their soapboxes, and using ‘salvaged’ expensive materials such as carbon fibre! From a silent standing start just above the famous Goodwood Flint Wall, the soapboxes shot down the Festival hillclimb, with some reaching speeds of 70 mph before crossing the finish line in front of Goodwood House. Over the years, as the cars and their creators became more ingenious and competitive, the number of mishaps and accidents increased, with the fire of competition ultimately burning too brightly with the soapbox teams, causing the chequered flag to finally fall on this much-loved Festival spectacle in 2004.

Despite filling stations already having been criticised for increasing the price of petrol and diesel on a Monday, the day that Europe monitors fuel prices across the network to compile their own figures, one chain of fuel providers is offering an incentive to fill up on a Friday to motorists in Spain.

Famous drivers steering these gravity racers over the years included Sir Stirling Moss, Barry Sheene, Perry McCarthy, Tiff Needell and musician Jay Kay. Soapboxes returning for the 2013 Festival include the Rolls-Royce Typhoon, McLaren MP4/T5, Lotus Type 199, Porsche Speedster II, Ford Centennial Flyer and Bugatti Petit Tank. The soapboxes will do a demonstration run down the Festival Hill on Saturday and Sunday, and will be displayed around the wishing well, near the BlackRock Drivers Club entrance, every day. For tickets to the 2013 Goodwood Moving Motor Show and Festival of Speed (please note that Saturday 13 July now sold out), please contact the Ticket Hotline by: Telephone: +44 1243 755055Fax: on +44 1243 755 058. Email: ticket.office@goodwood.com. Book on-line: www.goodwood.com.

BRITISH COUPLE SERIOUSLY INJURED A British couple was seriously injured in a road traffic accident that occurred yesterday last Monday on the road between San Miguel de Salinas, Blue Lagoon and the Orihuela Costa at about 1pm. The accident occurred when two cars, traveling in opposite directions collided head on. The occupants were trapped inside the vehicle while firefighters from Almoradí , Torrevieja and the emergency services, cut them free. The British couple were both taken to hospital in Torrevieja while the occupants of the other vehicle, said to be of Indian origin, were only slightly injured. Both vehicles were completely written off by the impact. The road remained closed for just over an hour while the debris was cleared up.

Repsol has announced that they will reduce the price of petrol and diesel every Friday in July and August, making sure that you get the lowest price of the week in time to fill up before the weekend´s drive. In a statement, Repsol says the move is aimed to “encourage” drivers to fill the tanks of their vehicles on a Friday in the months of the year with more displacement on the roads. The company's commitment to “ensure” the lowest price of the week will run until the last Friday in August at all service stations in their network´s group, including those branded as Repsol, Campsa and Petronor, a total of 3,615 service stations. Defending the previous criticism, Repsol say that they only recommend the maximum price to filling stations, and these stations have “complete freedom to set the final sales price to the public”. The lower Monday price is nothing to do with the European check up they say, but is rather an initiative that adds to the business strategy of the company to reduce prices on Monday, the “day that transportation professionals mostly use to fill their fuel tank ahead of their weekly activity”. This week, coinciding with the first mass movement of the summer holidays, the average price of fuel in Spain has reported a decrease from the previous minimum, according to data from the EU Oil Bulletin. According to these statistics, the average price of a litre of petrol is 1.421 euro, down from 1.425, representing a decrease of 0.28%, whereas for diesel, the average price was 1.332 euro per litre, 0.15% less than previous 1.334 euro.

A FEAST FOR YOUR EYES! SPECSAVERS OPTICIANS OFFERS ADVICE ON FOOD FOR HEALTHY EYES

FUNERAL PLANS WISE WORDS FROM PAUL CUNNINGHAM NURSES Dealing with terminally ill patients on a daily basis, Paul Cunningham Nurses are used to handling the ‘end of life’ situation. However, family and friends are not used to coping with the passing of a loved one. The emotional roller coaster that they go through until the point of passing and immediately after will probably be the most distressing time of their lives. We see first-hand at Paul Cunningham Nurses how this situation is compounded and made even more stressful if no funeral plan/arrangements have been made. Not speaking the language or understanding the culture are just two hurdles to manage. We at Paul Cunningham Nurses strongly recommend funeral plans for ‘all’ on the basis that we consider the recommendation part of our service in helping patients, family/friends to manage the ‘passing of life’ through to its final conclusion with as much help, advice and support as possible, not only with the nursing aspect. With a funeral plan in place ‘one phone call’ to the telephone number (quoted clearly on funeral plan documents) is all that is required. The Funeral Director will speak English and will be on hand once the doctor has been out to certify the death; he will take the deceased from any location and transport to the relevant place of rest for family and friends to attend if they wish to do so. Alternatively - If no Funeral Plan is in place the outcome is very different indeed. Firstly there is a language problem if no Spanish is spoken. The patient location at the time of passing i.e. Hospital, Home and Nursing Home can make a difference in getting a doctor to certify the death & making arrangements for collection can be very expensive. The deceased will be taken to wherever the local authorities decide, this can be a long way away, and there is no consideration for the family location. It will be the responsibility of family to arrange transportation to a crematorium where the date and upfront payment for the burial service will have to be paid. A Vicar/Priest will need to be found to perform the ceremony if required. All of this at a time when family/friends really just need to be able to grieve. Please take the time to consult and arrange a plan that is right for you. If you do not the consequences are very daunting and in fact end up costing a lot more than a funeral plan. Let the professionals take charge; they are used to coping with the handling of funeral arrangements and any unforeseen complications on a daily basis. It helps make the situation much easier for everyone concerned.

A HEALTHY diet can encourage good eyesight and help reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts, says the World’s Largest Privately owned Opticians, Specsavers. While women look to a healthy diet to keep check on their waistlines, or consider their heart or cholesterol levels and eat accordingly, few women think of their eyesight when planning their dietary requirements. Jorge Martinez at Specsavers Opticas Benidorm explains: ‘The macula is the part of the retina that enables our most acute and detailed vision for tasks such as reading, driving, recognising faces and watching television, so it is important to protect it. It has been proven that eating a diet rich in antioxidants, especially carotenoids, is particularly beneficial.’ A study by America’s National Institute of Health, found that people eating the highest amounts of carotenoids have a 43% lower risk of developing macular degeneration than those who have very low amounts in their diet. Studies have also shown that people with higher than average intakes of antioxidants – beta-carotene, lutein and vitamins C and E – appear to have a reduced risk of developing cataracts. Foods such as pepper, broccoli, sweet potatoes, citrus fruits and dark green leafy vegetables, like spinach and kale, are rich in these antioxidants. Mr. Martinez continues: ‘Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is the leading cause of visual impairment in Europe, followed by cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Lutein and zeaxanthin, along with other antioxidants such as beta-carotene and vitamins C and E, work to neutralise potentially cell-damaging molecules called ‘free radicals’ which are thought to harm the eye’s lens and macular. So for your health and your eyesight’s sake, enjoy a variety of fruit, vegetables and wholegrains every day.’ The Eye Diet: Top ten foods to feast your eyes on: 1. Carrots – it’s not entirely a myth that eating carrots can help you see in the dark as they are high in beta-carotene, which the body can convert to vitamin A. People who consume foods high in beta-carotene have been shown to have better night-vision than those who don’t.

2. Dark green leafy vegetables – these contain beta-carotene and vitamin C. Preliminary data shows that vitamin C can help slow cataract progression once the lenses of the eyes have become cloudy. 3. Peppers – peppers contain lutein that scientists believe protects the sensitive retina from light-induced oxidation damage and may be responsible for reversing macular degeneration in very early stages. 4. Broccoli – contains beta-carotene and lutein. 5. Brussel sprouts – contain lutein. 6. Pumpkin, yams, squash and sweet potatoes – contain beta-carotene and lutein. 7. Citrus fruits – contain betacarotene. 8. Apricots – contain beta-carotene. 9. Sardines – contain zinc and vitamin E. Zinc is beneficial for wound healing and maintaining the immune system. The body needs zinc to form certain anti-oxidant enzymes in the eye. Preliminary studies suggest that vitamin E is protective against the development of cataracts. 10. Nuts – Contain zinc, vitamin E and selenium, another antioxidant.

FIND A COOLER SOLUTION WITH R&R CONSTR UCTION As the summer sun melts most of us away, we might forget that there´s a simple solution to cooling down in the heat, the installation of air conditioning. But with so much choice around, how can we possibly know who to turn to, when all we want to do is relax and cool down? There is a simple answer to that question; we turn to a company with a proven track record, specialists at what they do, and who clearly focus on quality. One such company is R&R Construction, who have already been established and operating for the past 9 years, where many have come and gone, they still have that proven track record that shows they can give us what we want. But what about the quality angle, well, again, they satisfy that criteria too.

The installers at R&R Construction are all German trained, taking that quality standard into your home with every installation or repair that they carry out. They have a wide range of brand new units, all the latest standard in quality and efficiency, all 2013 models, with A1 classification for energy efficiency, which not only goes towards your home´s energy certification, but also saves you money when it is running. The reason R&R Construction recommend the A1 units is that they give rise to a 40% reduction in energy bills in comparison to the older inverter units, and therefore, will ultimately pay for themselves in the savings in your energy bills They do of course still have older stock available, in case you prefer a more classic air conditioning unit. In fact, although limited in supply, they have some of the older stock items available, fully installed, for just 390 euro. These units, like their modern relatives, still come with a 2 year guarantee.

As for routine maintenance, R&R Construction do that too. It is essential that once a year the filters and gas levels are checked and the units drained, which is just 40 euro for 2 unity, or 28 euro if you just have the one.

EVERYBODY NEEDS GOOD NEIGHBOURS Dear Editor, Having read your article about the fire in the Sierra de Madrid, I thought I would share my first hand experiences, living in the disaster zone. I was first alerted by the sudden cut of electricity and wandered out on to my terrace in Cerro Alcon Dos. From the smell of smoke and white ash descending on my garden I suddenly became aware something was up! Still clad in my bikini, I quickly threw something on, grabbed my 3 yr old daughter and ran to see my neighbours. Being a Brit abroad I have never experienced anything like this and my incredible neighbours calmed me down and reassured me! Even, on this extremely hot day, I found the heat generated from the fire intense. I quickly ran into my home grabbed a bag with supplies for my daughter, a change of clothes, my jewellery box and hand bag. It was so extraordinary that I don’t even know what was going on in my mind whilst stumbling around in the dark searching for the above items! I closed all the

windows, shutters, removed all objects off my terrace and wished my two poor moggies good luck! I just did not know if I had time to faff around in the garage to find their boxes and then try to entrap these already freaked out creatures! What I remember vividly was that my daughter was my priority and to get her to safety! After locking up and doing all I could to minimize the risk to my animals, I fled to the street to rejoin my neighbours. Naturally thinking we should all leave, I was surprised that most of my neighbours refused to leave as they thought we were relatively safe. Even after loud speaker evacuation warnings they dug their heels in for the night! They proceeded to get their garden furniture out, make chorizo sandwiches and offer me a beer! At this point I did not know if I was going nuts or if they were! Eventually two great looking police men turned up and broke up the party! We were quite rightly forced to evacuate to Valdemorrillo. So typical of my husband to be away on business every time something goes wrong, but how lucky I am, despite not speaking Spanish, to

have wonderful neighbours who took me to their family homes in Valdemorrillo! Viva Espana! Sarah Perez Keefe ED - So pleased you are safe. Sarah we are delighted that you were so well looked after by your neighbours. Im sure it is an experience that you will remember for a long time. How lucky you are to be surrounded by such wonderful people.

WHERE IS THE BUS? Hello there, Can you tell me about the Playa Flamenca to the airport bus? Is this service cancelled? Took family this morning to Mercadona roundabout for 08:00 service but no bus turned up. Had to ask a neighbour to take them to the airport. Locals beside the bus stop did not know of an airport bus from that stop. Confusion reigns. Ned Kelly ED - Mr Kelly, Having spoken to the town hall, they say that the bus operator reported the trial gave such poor

results, with nobody using the pilot service, so it was not viable to operate. Other bus companies are looking at alternative solutions to the airport bus link from the Orihuela Costa. All timetables can be found on the bus stops and via the websites of these operators.

AGE CONCERN Dear Editor, I have just visited the new office for International Residents at the Playa Flamenca Town Hall and was both pleased and surprised to see two ladies from Age Concern occupying a small corner of the office. What really amazed me was that I had never seen any publicity informing the local population that Age Concern actually held twice weekly sessions at this venue every Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I asked the ladies why their twice weekly drop in sessions were not publicized and was informed that it was not the policy of Age Concern. This really flummoxed me because I could not see any reason for this lack of publicity. However it

would explain why these two ladies sat doing nothing for over an hour. What is the sense of having a drop in surgery when the people it is intended for know nothing about it. Come on Age Concern, you are doing sterling work, but please make sure you advertise your drop in sessions so that those needing your valuable help know when they can consult you. Yours sincerely Irene Shepherd

TOO MANY EYESORES n reference to our article by columnist Sandpiper, entitled “TOO MANY EYESORES ALONG N332 IN ORIHUELA COSTA”, it would appear that your opinion is somewhat divided. Here are two opposing comments on the subject.

wants trees and shrubs when there is no money to maintain them anyway. Graham Dear Sandpiper, Well said! The Coastal population must have sunk billions into the coffers over the past 20 years but receive a disproportionately small amount in return. May I suggest that one of the cheapest and most effective forms of beautification to this tourist area would be to clean off the graffiti and get the local police to take action against offenders? Internationally graffiti is the first, loudest and surest sign that an area is undesirable and in decay. Sincerely Robin Birkett Contributors should limit their letters to 300 words. Views expressed in the letters are not necessarily those of The ‘Leader’

What a rubbish, one sided article with no substance whatsoever... The improvements carried out are a big improvement to the area and the bridges are serving the people in the right places and with the underpasses as well, it is safe to cross the N332. Who

HIGHWAY ROBBERY ARRESTS The Guardia Civil has broken up a gang of criminal who would prey on innocent travellers on the AP-7 motorway, with the arrest of five suspects in the case. Those involved have appeared in court in Dénia, remanded in custody as alleged perpetrators of numerous robberies. The attacks were all committed based around service areas and lay-bys on the AP-7, with a distance covering almost the entire east coast, from Girona to Murcia, including Alicante, where they were finally captured. The five suspects, all of Romanian nationality, took advantage of the night to act, looking for tired or sleeping travellers, opening the boots of vehicles and stealing the contents. Most of the items stolen were sent to Romania, according to investigators. The Guardia Civil strengthened surveillance on the AP-7 last summer, following a stark increase in the number of crimes of this nature, where criminal gangs would steal money and valuables, taking advantage of the “carelessness” of their victims, who were mostly tourists. An in depth investigation and study was launched to learn the behaviour of the gangs, so as to best act in preventing and detecting criminal activity. One conclusion from that study by criminology experts was that an increase in patrols would have a direct effect and decrease

in the number of attacks. A short stop to refuel or rest of a foreign driver is synonymous with the robberies, which were all meticulously planned to work around strategic points of attack, as well as avoiding routine patrols and inspections. Since last year, a total of five gangs have been arrested, including one of the ring leaders, all of whom are being brought to justice.

WHAT’S YOUR EMERGENCY? The 112 emergency coordination centre for the Valencia region received 301,667 calls during the month of June, resulting in the management of 47,268 incidents. Of all the incidents dealt with, 23,610 were in the province of Valencia, 17,990 were in Alicante and 5,266 in Castellón. The remaining 402 were from neighbouring regions, so they were transferred to the appropriate emergency centre. By types of emergencies dealt with, a total of 27,037 were health related, whereas 8,106 were associated with public safety. Capable of dealing with calls in most foreign languages, the centre dealt with 1,124 incidents that were reported in a language other than Spanish, of which 749 were recorded in Alicante, 261 in Valencia, 97 from Castellón 97 and 17 from neighbouring communities.

Specifically, 659 calls were handled in English, 78 in German, 64 in French and 323 in other languages. During the first half of the year, the service managed a total of 225,545 incidents, of which 113,210 were in the province of Valencia, 83,614 in Alicante, 25,420 in Castellón and 3,301 in neighbouring regions, of which 109,997 were health related and 47,228 were incidents relating to public safety, 11,737 were traffic accidents, 8,915 fire alerts, 4,595 of an environmental risk and 2,060 rescues with endangerment to life. The Director General responsible for the coordination centre, Irene Rodríguez, has praised the staff who look after the calls, all of which are handled with dedication and professionalism, “for this important daily work to meet and coordinate quick and effective emergency calls for all citizens”.

NEWSREADER LOSES LEUKAEMIA BATTLE Popular Spanish news reader and journalist Concha García Campoy has died at the age of 54, after losing her long battle with leukaemia. Having been diagnosed in 2011, it was on the 10th of January, 2012, that Concha announced on her Twitter account that she had leukaemia, undergoing treatment in June of that year. Having worked on one of the principle news shows on Spanish TV, Concha became a household name and a reliable source of information for many during her career. Her long time friend, Manuel Campo Vidal, tweeted this week that, “Concha García Campoy, my dear friend for 27 years, is in critical condition. Medicines have produced a hepatic coma”. It was just a few hours later that her tragic death was announced.

CARTAGENA’S ROMAN THEATRE CELEBRATES FIFTH BIRTHDAY

Last Thursday 11 July the Museum of Roman Theatre in Cartagena celebrated its 5th birthday. In this time it has become an important cultural landmark and tourist attraction both of the town and of the Region of Murcia. Already more than 690,000 people have visited the museum making it the most popular museum in the region, and one of the most visited nationwide. With the more frequent arrival of cruise ships and the increase of congress tourism 2013 saw the number of visitors improve by 12 per cent with 42% of all visitors coming from abroad. The tour of the site begins at the Museum itself, whose entrance is located at the Town Hall Square in front of the Ayuntamiento. The visitor first steps into the corridor of history where the evolution of the solar urban theatre from the twenty-first century to the first century is explained. It displays the archaeological objects recovered during the excavation, drawings, photographs and audio-visual pieces, the history of the area from the XVIII to XX centuries, followed by the old quarter, centuries XVI to XVII, the Arabic district called Qartayanna Al Halfa, the ancient Byzantine port, destroyed by Suintila in 625, and her transformation of the theater. The exhibition of plates, jugs, pots and other everyday objects discovered on digs allows us to get a glimpse of the lives if the inhabitants of a neighbourhood that, throughout history, was always part of the city, and experienced periods of prosperity and decadence.

At the end of the corridor, and through a virtual recreation, visitors will then come to understand how the development of the neighbourhood throughout history deleted all trace of the Roman Theatre until its excavation.

"I´VE HEARD THIS BEFORE!" The Symphony Orchestra of the Region of Murcia is launching a challenge to the audience at a concert this coming Thursday. The musicians, conducted by Virginia Martínez, will play a wide selection of well-known and popular classics; those which, throughout history, have been heard in major concert halls all over n the world or used in films, TV ... But there won´t be a playlist in the program. On entering the auditorium each member of the audience will be given

a sheet of paper and a pen to write down the names of the pieces of music or the composers they will hear. There will be a prize for the winner. This concert will take place next THURSDAY JULY 18, AT 22 PM. Tickets available from the El Batel Auditorium (Tel: 968 12 38 27), El Corte Inglés Shopping Center or from ticketmaster.es. PRICE: 14, 12 or 8 euros. You can find more information at: http://auditorioelbatel.es

The archaeological work conducted from 1990 to the present has allowed exceptional knowledge and understanding of the significance of the building architecture and built in the late first century BC shows Its location in one of the highest hills around the city resulting in the construction of the cavea, which at its center appears carved into the rock of the mountain. The theater, with a capacity of 7000 spectators, has been restored for the enjoyment of visitors, as well as for preservation and exhibition of educational and cultural purposes. The area inside the monument is designed to incorporate great the halls of and radial stairs that allow space down to the orchestra and the stage, displaying the partial restoration of the front stage. In addition, visitors can enjoy many temporary exhibitions which are changing on a regular basis during the summer months. There are currently art and jewellery exhibitions which have been inspired by the old Mediterranean myths as well as a craft display of work by Angeles Morejon in which metal work has forged his career for over 30 years. Also during the summer months the Roman Theatre Museum has scheduled a series of special events and open air performances for all audiences so if you are looking for a day out in the coming weeks you can find all of the detail of the museum, its exhibitions and the many planned events in English on the excellent website at .......... www.teatroromanocartagena.org

FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SATELLITE TV IN SPAIN Following on from Astra 2F last year and all the rumors of needing at least a 3 mtr satellite dish to receive UK Tv it seems the gossips have all started again. In the trade we did not expect a lot to happen but somehow rumors and gossip start and people panic. Usually started by providers of other types of TV. What happened, well not a lot? People with 1 mtr dishes lost channel 5, 5 star and 5 USA anything bigger than a 1 mtr dish work with no problems. So let’s look at what we do know. All the satellites at 28 deg east are being upgraded as they have come to the end of their life. This process will take about 4 years. The first was astra 2F and the next is astra 2E. The main reasons for the changes are that the satellites at the moment are getting old. The new satellites will also give more capacity and direct to home internet. All the satellites will be in exactly the same position; you will NOT need to re align your dish. The footprint (the signal beam) is exactly the same as astra 2F. So if you still have channel 5 then you should not see any difference. If you have lost channel 5 (normally 1 mtr dishes) then you will lose other channels and will need to upgrade your dish. The launch of the new satellite is 19th July; however the new satellite will then need testing and moving to position, We do not expect any changes until the first week of September. However, on the 5th July a rocket launch crashed into the launch site. This will undoubtedly cause a delay of the launch but no new date has been given. We have been very lucky in Costa Blanca as opposed to the Costa del Sol and Portugal. Other papers have mentioned a total black out say-

ing “channels will be lost in the same way as channel 5". This is totally incorrect in this area. As mentioned above channel 5 is easily available .with the aid of a dish 1.2 mtrs or bigger which means all other channels will also be fine. A 1 mtr dish is still expected to get a wide range of channels but at this time we are not sure which ones. What’s new? There are always new products on the market here is a brief explanation Standard receiver ... Receives channels in standard definition ( quality ) Hd receiver ...... receives High definition which gives a much sharper picture quality. This can be used on any TV But you will not get the full benefit of HD if the TV is SD (standard definition) PVR ... This is a receiver that has a recording facility. You add your own memory with a memory stick or hard drive. Just plug in the back and forget! IPTV ... This is internet TV. YOU do not need a dish although some receivers have both. The quality is not as good and you need a good internet system. Combi receiver.... This gives you the best of both worlds. Full satellite HD and internet services such as film on, 1 channel, you tube etc

HI SPEED TRAIN NETWORK CONTINU ES TO EXPAND

As the journey of the high speed train between Madrid and Alicante trundles on, not without the occasional problem, reports are still looking favourable for the service, which is reporting to be close to 100% capacity on many days, even during the anticipated quieter times, with an estimated increase of 1,100,000 passengers now expected to use the service in the first year. Still continuing the momentum for develop-

ment, the government has this week announced that the old lines between Alicante and Barcelona will be adapted to high speed use by 2016, with a reduction in journey times such as Alicante to Valencia in less than one hour, the fastest time currently being 90 minutes. The Director General of railways, Miguel Pozo, made the announcement during a visit to Alicante, detailing how the planned proposals for the “Mediterranean Corridor” were progressing well, with Barcelona, Valencia,

Alicante and Cartagena all ultimately being linked by a high speed service. Despite the bold announcement, the Director was unable to provide and firm dates, nor any budgets for the work, but he did state that a variety of budgets are available from the European Union, with 21 billion euro potentially available for a variety of projects. Pozo did say that the “spectacular” launch of the Alicante to Madrid service has exceeded all the expectations, and the Ministry estimates that over the next twelve months, the trains will have transported 2 million passengers, an increase of 1,100,000 of the 900,000 who used the line before the service speed was increased. Pozo also confirmed that the speed between Alicante and Albacete will be increased between now and the end of the year, reducing the journey time even further, shaving another 10 minutes off the journey, meaning the Madrid to Alicante trip will then take 2 hours and 20 minutes, which is 50 minutes faster than previously. A working group was set up to analyse the service, which now estimates that the growth will be some 150,000 passengers each month, with the economic impact thought to be in the region of 70 million euro per year for business, especially in the vicinity of the station.

With 1 channel ( and similar ) you can watch 1000s of movies and series through the internet on your TV. Even some that has not been released yet! Twin Tuner... record one channel and watch another. This receiver is also is available with the 1 channel etc options. Satellites Direct

TEN ARRESTED FOR THEFT OF COPPER WIRE Damage amounting to over 20,000 euros has been caused by thefts of approximately 6,300 metres of copper wire from streets in Orihuela. As a result, the thefts have resulted in a serious loss for the town hall, not just for the stolen materials, for the damage caused, but also for the cost of replacement. It has also resulted in severe inconvenience for many local residents who have been left without street lighting. An investigation into the crime began 4 months ago when reports of broken street lighting began to mount up. They were principally occurring in the areas of San Anton, Camino Viejo de Callosa, Bonanza and Hurchillo as well as the route up to the Diocesan Seminary. As a result of those investigations the National Spanish Police have now arrested 10 people, nine men and a woman aged between 19 and 33, are all residents of Orihuela. They were allegedly stealing the copper wiring from street lighting to sell on to various scrap yards in the Vega Baja for approximately 3-4 euros per kilo. They would first remove the electrical covers, pull up the lighting cables from underground before burning off the plastic insulation to display the copper wire. Although only now made public the arrests were all made during the last week in June. Nine of the alleged perpetrators are accused of seven counts of theft and criminal damage, while the owner of a scrap yard has been charged with receiving stolen goods.

VEGA BAJA PREMIER GOLF LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION – 12 JULY at EL VALLE

CLUB 25 SERENA CROWNED CHAMPIONS The Vega Baja Premier Golf League concluded the season for the Premier Division at El Valle Golf Resort, and it was a warm sunny 30 degrees. The course was in prime condition which was an ideal way for the teams holding first and second places to play each other. Club 25 Serena held a slender 2 point difference over Las Ramblas and with 15 points up for grabs it was going to be a thrilling climax to the season. It was Las Ramblas who were in a determined mood with the duo’s of Lindsay Forbes and Geoff Biggerstaff winning the first match but the second and third matches went in favour of Club 25 Serena with Barry Gibb/Martin Oakley and Ian Robertson/Alan Boggess being the victors. The final match was honours even oddly both pairings had the team Captains Mick Brentnall for Las Ramblas and Alan Ross Club 25 Serena, their respective partners Mike Frankish and Les Lane sharing it with them. It was a match played in the true spirit of the game of golf and a credit to both teams RESULTS: Las Ramblas GS 1.5 (34.5 holes) Club 25 SERENA GS 2.5 (37.5 holes)

Bonus points Club 25 Serena GS This meant that Club 25 Serena G S took the Premier Division Trophy by 8 points. So congratulations to them. Sadly Claptons GS were unable to field a team and 12 points were awarded to La Manga North GS

As Doug is on his holidays he has passed the pen to me to make something up from our golfing week. Monday's "Waltzer"was won with a fine score of 87 [which included six 4 pointers!] by the team featuring - karaoke star Rod Doel, Mike Bretnall, Norman Page and Ann Marie Weisheit. Wednesday's stableford saw some very consistent scoring with over half the field firmly in the buffer zone.There were two exceptions with our two lowest handicap members both scoring a superb 40 pts. The full results were-- 1st class 1- Lindsay Forbes 40 pts [c/b] 2 Phil Herrington 40pts 3 Dave Pulling 36 pts, 2nd class 1-Joyce McCluskey 37 pts 2 Ann Marie Weisheit 36 pts [c/b] 3 Allen McCluskey 36 pts Ken Robertson, who played exceptional golf to beat his better half, Liz,in the Summer Singles, lifted the two's pot, with surprisingly, the only two of the day. Friday saw the members play a Texas scramble,which was won by the inform Ken, Liz and Joyce.[first names reserved only for stars!!] meanwhile.....Captain Bretnall led his Vega Baja Premier League team to El Valle where the long awaited head to head final league match against league leaders Club 25 Serrena took place. Unfortunately for us, giving shots in all 4 matches, proved to be too much for us and Club 25 Serenna deservedly won the title. Well done to them and thanks to all their players for a match played in the true spirit of golf. Special mention to my partner,Nick and our opponents -Barry and Martin-well played. Special mention also to Lindsay Forbes and Geoff Biggerstaff, our only winners on the day, and of course, to Ivie Davies and Ron Nicholson for all their hard work. Tom Hardie

LA MARINA GOLF SOCIETY Thursday 28th June

It was hot and it was sticky but then a bit of breeze arrived to help cool down the 30 players trying their level best to knock the little white round ball into the slightly bigger round hole a few hundred yards away. That breeze then began to get a little stronger and (for some anyway) made that very simple sounding task a bit harder. Before I get to the results, let me warn you that whenever you play with Matthew Taylor, don’t ask him to describe where your ball went. Trees, as we know, come in various sizes, they are either big, medium or small but he will tell you that “your ball went by the big small tree”. Even our Norwegian playing partner looked bemused and that takes some doing. Okay, back to the results and there will be some might fine scissor work being done as I type for it took 38 points to come 4th in the Silver Division and Paula Hagart was pushed into 4th on the countback system by Les Wilton both scoring 38 points. However, these two were poles apart from the 2nd place score of 40 by Captain Mick Kennedy and even further behind the very impressive 41 by Alan Rickers. Ladies and Gentlemen, please do enjoy your new handicaps

and please bear in mind that even Jesse James wore a mask when he robbed people…bandits indeed!! The Gold Division was more of a steady scoring affair and 3 golfers tied on 34 points with Alan Rixson in 4th, losing out to Steve Higgins (3rd) who in turn lost out to Kenney Hunter (2nd) on the count-back systems. This left James Hunter alone at the top with 37 points (and another chop chop). The Best Visitor on the day was John Sokoluk (try saying that after a few pints of the falling down stuff) with 35 points and the runner up was (now a member) Brian Staines with 31 points. The 4 NTP’s were all claimed and a sleeve of Srixon Soft Feels went to John Sokoluk, Bill Starkey, Peter Wells and Mick Kennedy.Photo is of the Gold Category winners. Our next game, Wednesday 124th July 2013, see’s us at Villamartin golf course, so if you fancy a game just look at our website www.tmgs.org or call the Match Secretary on 661 524 101.

By Eric Lucas Another good turnout in the very hot weather at Saurines del la Torre on Thursday, we also picked up a player at the course looking for a game .A day were the sun factor cream and sun hats were out for protection. Saurines as I have said in my reports before, is growing on me the more I play the better it gets, and becoming one of my favourite courses The course was in very good condition, greens and fairways were excellent, if there was something to say. the tee areas needed just a light cut otherwise the course was at its best. We played full handicap stableford with the usual two's pot and 2 n/t/s. Chris' Blown came out the winner with 39 pt's, playing off 8, handicap adjustment soon I can see. We returned back to Gogarty's for the presentations and a great buffet from Jo. Thanks again to James for sponsoring the raffle prize won by Marie Fegan (on a quick trip in from Ireland). There were no two's winner, N/T/P's, No 6 Chris Blown, No 18 Nick Brooks.

Today we played at Lo Romero for the Presidents cup this was our last game before the summer recess with a very good turnout of some 37 members and guest playing this very attractive course which was in excellent condition, with the weather perfect for golf warm but not to and hot. It was also nice to some members who have not been available to play over the previous months Regrettably one of members Graham Mariner had a bad fall injuring his arm and shoulder and had to retire from the competition, we wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him on the fairways when we resume at the end of august, There was some very good scoring with the winner once again a lady member Eñspeth Craig who is regular on the rostrum with 39 points off a handicap of 34, no doubt our . Locum handicap secretary now has problem of wielding the axe on a number of handicaps including his wife’s, a very dangerous action especially if she also has axe , no doubt he will solve the problem without too much blood.

‘MIKE PROBERT TALKS GOLF Sponsored by Costa Blanca Green Fee Services. Here on the Costa’s golf is one of the biggest leisure time activities for both tourists and resident alike and with this in mind we have secured the services of Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services to provide a weekly round up of local golfing events and topics and in conjunction with us at THE LEADER will provide discounted golf prices to all of our readers and run our golf competitions. THE ROLE OF GOLF BOOKING AGENTS Many golfing residents here in Spain are all too aware that the cost of club memberships is significantly higher than in the UK giving them two alternatives to play golf at more affordable prices namely, use a booking agent or play with a golf society. Unlike some people in the golf industry here in Spain who pay a few hundred euros, go on a course for a few days and return claiming to be qualified experts in their field, golf booking agents are vetted by the golf courses and sign formal contracts insisting that they operate to within Spanish fiscal laws and with professionalism in representing them and then invest thousands of euros and hours In web-site design, leaflets, brochures, trade fairs and advertising to promote the courses they represent. If the courses had to employ sales and marketing people for these tasks the green fee costs would undoubtedly increase. If you have a society consisting of more than 20 players and have someone within the society with the time, interest and funds to pay the deposits sometimes required by the courses then you should be able to obtain prices comparable to those available from booking agents BUT if your society is less than 20 players in total this is not the case and the booking agents can help in these instances because less than 20 players is a ‘group’ and not a ‘society’ and different rates apply from the courses. The booking agent can also help to ‘network’ small societies together so they play on the same course on the same day and obtain the price for the larger group, assistance with RFEG membership, prize sponsorship, notification of course maintenance and even writing the society reports providing free advertising for not only the society but the bar in which they are located. Also remember that in most instances the booking agent’s price will actually better than the golf society price. Until our hosts change their strategy towards golf prices then the above options are going to be the only ones available to golfers in the region for some time to come. We at THE LEADER are committed to providing to our golfing readers affordable golf without the need to join a club or apply for a card but simply contact the number, below to have instant access to discounted golf prices, many of which are exclusive to us.

HUB SPORTS BAR GOLF SOCIETY VILLAMARTIN By Paul Durrant Las Colinas this time for the Hub Society, a course most would agree is one of the best in the region. A fine turnout of ¨Hubbers¨and guests alike to the well appointed golf and country club meant a two tee start to accommodate the numbers. With the Best Guest prize sponsored by PJ´s Rentacar and some healthy financial support from the renowned Graeme Jackson, prizes were in abundance for those in any sort of form. Man of the event was Trevor Scammell who fired 3 birdies off a 13 handicap for a commendable 37 point total, to win the day by two points. Scammell´s birdies came on the Par 4 330 yard, 6th, Par 3, 147 yard, 10th and the Par 5, 550 yard, 15th. The 10th also won the Bristol Rovers supporter and former prison officer the nearest the pin prize, with a fine 8 iron to 3 foot. Not far behind the winner was Steve Higgins (off 16) who played excellent golf on the front nine, amassing 20 points even with a ¨blob¨. Unfortunately the 15 points on the back nine (with 2 blobs) wasn’t quite enoughfor top spot, but commendable nevertheless. Best guest was Peter Hogg on holiday from the UK with friends Bryan Woodford and Ian Faraday, who scored a creditable 33 points, 3 points clear of runner up Mark Kingston. Provider of numerous prizes on the day, philanthropist Graeme Jackson, started well, 12 points after the 4th, but couldn’t maintain the pace and welcomed the opportunity of a pint or two a little later, back at the Hub. A false alarm for Hub owner Simon Williams on the 13th, wife Leanne was reported going into labour with their first child, the crisis was revised by the 16th, much to Simon´s relief and his playing partners, to possibly a few days instead of the 2 weeks anticipated. As usual, expect the unexpected, Layla Elizabeth was born 16 hours later weigh-

ing (in old money) 7lb 5ozs, both parents are doing well. Congratulations! Results: PJ´s Rent a Car best guest: 3rd Noel Dempsey (29pts), 2nd Mark Kingston (30), 1st Peter Hogg (33).

ROCKET’S GOLF SOCIETY AT VISTABELLA GOLF Individual Stableford Rocket’s Golf Society was at Vistabella for the first time since its very popular name change to celebrate its founder and Secretary Ron “Rocket” Nicholson. He welcomed guests and new member Robert Scott Boy it was hot, hot, hot, thankfully Vistabella is situated where a breeze is not far away, but factor 30 is the order of the day. The course is in very good condition and the greens are some of the best in the area. Golf is one of those games that when you are having a poor day there is always one shot amongst all the others that makes you come back for more, this happened to one of our members on the 17th Par 4 (yes! the one that has water on the right that swallows your balls ) he put his second shot from the fairway into the hole, 167 meters away, for an Eagle and for massive five points. As Arnold Schwartzenegger said “I’ll be back!” The results of the day were: GOLD CATEGORY SILVER CATEGORY 1st Les Yates 34 pts 1st Rocket Ron 32 pts C/B 2nd Robert Scott 32 pts 2nd Reid Kane 32 pts 3rd Ivie Davies 29 pts 3rd Ron Chambers 28 pts 4th Peter Root 28 pts 4th Malcolm Woods 27 pts C/B 5th Anne Trailor 25 pts 5th Geoff Wild 27 pts

LA MARINA “HACKERS” GOLF SOCIETY CAPTAINS DAY! By Geoffrey Briggs Wednesday 3rd July we played our normal monthly stableford, on this occasion at Bonalba Golf Club. Members and guests played for the Captains Cup, presented to The Society by Keith Richard during his year as Captain in memory of his late wife. As always we received a warm welcome from the personnel at Bonalba GC, our home course, where the cards and buggies were waiting outside of reception. The weather was excellent for golf and very comfortable for the players. We were in good time and so we had a few practice swings and putting practice before our tee times. There was a good turnout from the members and on this occasion we were joined by five guests, the course was in its usual excellent con-

dition and so everyone was looking forward to a good day’s golf. Our only lady golfer was committed elsewhere, probably because she needs more female members since she is tired of beating her fellow male society members. So come on ladies get those clubs out of the garden shed and come and play golf with us! Close scrutiny of the cards showed that Mark Talbot had scored 30 points and was therefore declared the winner. The photo shows Immediate Past Captain Keith, our oldest member, presenting the Captains Cup to our youngest member Mark. After the game we returned to our 19th hole on La Marina Urbanisation for the presentation of the Captains Cup, a few well earned beers and a fine buffet supplied by Jackie and John Lowe, the publicans. Our next match will be played on Wednesday 7th August at Las Colinas Golf Club. Anyone interested, and remember we need female company for Lyn Young, in becoming a member or playing as a guest will receive a warm “Hackers” welcome and can contact our Secretary on 638539160 or call in at our 19th hole.

THE 8 NATIONS TOURNAMENT AT VISTABELLA GOLF By Bob Gallard This competition has grown each year as people want to play in this prestigious tournament. Originally 5 then 6 nations and now 8 nations were represented in teams of 8 at Vistabella for the 3rd time competing for the Alan Rea Trophy. Alex McLennan and Pablo Riestra of Vistabella Golf organised the event and thanks go to them and the team at Vistabella for presenting a course in such good condition. The weather as always for this time of the year was fantastic and the staff made sure that there was plenty of water available for the players out on the course. With 56 players on a shotgun start over only 11 holes there was always going to be holdups and the game was a bit slow, but overall the competition ran smoothly. This year the 8 nations were represented in 7 teams from England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Spain, Germany and a combined Scandinavian team of Norway and Sweden. The final score was made up of the best 7 scores from each team. At the conclusion of the game all players were treated to a free drink and a barbecue on the patio

whilst the scorecards were checked. Following a short thankyou from both Alex and Pablo the prizes were presented. Beginning with the best individual score going to Terry Lewis from Wales and the second lowest score which went to Sergio Castillon Vela from the Spanish Team. There were two nearest the pin prizes donated by Mick the Grip before the trophy results were given out. The final placings were given in reverse order and in last place were Germany with a score 172, in 6th place were Ireland on 186. 5th place were Spain with 198 and closely in front in 4th place were Wales with 199 points. 3rd place went to Scotland with 201 only 1 point behind Scandinavia in 2nd on 202. This left England victorious with a score of 205 points and they regained the title they lost last year to Spain. Many congratulations to all who played and to Vistabella for their facilities. Unfortunately the photo submitted was far too small for publication.

THE CELTS CLUB DE GOLF. Captain’s Prize Our captain’s prize tournament (Mr. Denis McCormack) was contested yesterday at our home course La Serena. With a fine turnout of 40 players and the course in excellent condition, the challenge began. The scores returned were very competitive indeed and a reflection of the undoubted talent of our members. While some of us were having difficulty with the medal format such as our Eddie amassing a nine on a par three, one super score was returned by our youngest member Dean McCluskey. Dean has only recently taken up the game and over the last two months has had his handicap adjusted to the tune of 9 shots. Oh, the dedication of youth, the long hours of practice, the lessons which are most definitely paying great dividends. A special word of thanks must go to our hosts Denis and Jackie who provided us with a very tasty free bar-b-cue for all the players. The entertainment on the night was fantastic, but the real show stopper was our newly discovered star the one and only Mr. Tom Jones, also known as Ritchie Heaton who managed to clear out the reception area with a novel rendition of Delilah. Well done to all who contributed to a very enjoyable night. Our winners on the day were as follows. NTP, s, Hole 9. Alisdair McLean, Hole 13. Ritchie Heaton, Hole 17. Ritchie Heaton and Hole 18.

Thanks to Mick the Grip for his sponsorship and finally again congratulations to Dean on his marvellous victory and to all those who participated to make this a very enjoyable day all round for Denis and all The Celts.

QUESADA BOWLS CLUB Well done to the Blenheims team who won the SABA Spring League. On the Federation front, the Lions are still maintaining their lead in the Blue Division, although, with two games this week and a strong challenge from Country Bowls Clarets, their lead was considerably reduced. However, in the second game against San Miguel Mavericks an outstanding performance by everybody brought in a 12-0 win (shots 95-47). Deidre Leeming won her singles 21-6. Bill Pain won his 21-17. In the pairs Jason Prokopowycz and Derek Sale won 15-7, with the triples of William Holtham, Derek Toozer and John Muldoon winning 20-8. In the fours George Carnell, Pearl Houghton, Chip Chapman and Pete Bonsor had a slow first half and then upped the ante to take the game 18-9. This still leaves us ahead in the League but with two games ahead the pressure is on! The Princes match went down to the wire with Dave Donovan, Veronica Sale and Tom Hill holding 4 shots to take the match, a last minute drive by the San Miguel skip cut down the shots and they won 24-22. Our membership Secretary Joe Riley is available on 96 572 5787 and would be pleased to discuss membership of the club.

LA SIESTA BOWLS REPORT

By Bill Allen Both the Victors and Vulcans completed their fixtures with home games, against Greenlands Glosters and El Rancho respectively. With temperatures going up, some were pleased it was the last game and not the first! However, after the final results of both teams we were left scratching our heads and thinking 'if only'. Why? Because both EI teams achieved 14 to 0 victories. What a way to end the season. Both Captains send thanks to everyone for their support and efforts. Hope to see you all again soon. We played our monthly game with the Highjackers on Tuesday, 9 July. In view of the 30 degrees temperature it was agreed to play 14 ends, to save all players from sunstroke. A good game ended with 3 winning rinks each, with the shot difference going to the Highjackers - 58 to 64. The August game will be played later in the day, 5.30 for 6pm, if enough bowlers are available. Let's hope it's a bit cooler then.

EL RANCHO BOWLS CLUB Monday found our Kings Cup team playing their first of this week’s two matches, an away match at La Marina, we were a little unfortunate not to come away with a better result. After both singles had finished it was one all and we were leading in the remaining 3 games with 5/6 ends to go, but La Marina rallied to go down on only 1 more rink. So the final score was 3 rinks to La Marina and 2 to El Rancho, with the overall shots being close too, 85 to us and 93 to la Marina. Well played all, a good effort! Jane Hamill 19-21. Drew Gerrard 21-19. Jim Jarvie and Stew Hamill 13-17. Margaret Odell, Ron Odell and Dave Whitworth 13-19. Carol Smith, Malc Elmore, Mike Smith and Alex Morrice 19-17. Our premier 20 fixture, on Tuesday evening, found us playing against Monte Mar, always great company and a challenge. We had a good match, at both venues with the home teams in both cases having the upper hand, much as you would expect. In the end both home teams took the rinks by 3 to 1 and the total shots, however Monte Mar took the combined overall shots, giving them 10 points to El Rancho’s 8. A good match played in great spirit. At home: Drew Gerrard 21-12. Enid Chapman and Bill Chapman 21-12. Margaret Odell, John Newell and Alec Morrice 8-16. Maureen Newell, Malc Sykes, Ron Odell and Shirley Edwards 17-10. Away: Merv Armstrong 21-17. Mike Barnett and Rod Wright 12-30. Carol Smith, Mike Smith and David Whitworth 14-25. Derry Ffitch, Rob Clark, Graham Day and John Donovan 9-20. On Wednesday we played host to Horadada, in our second Kings Cup game of the week. This period always seem to find many smaller clubs a little short of available players, but those available rallied round and did themselves and El Rancho proud, gaining a clean sweep on rinks and taking the overall shots. Jane Hamill 21-05. Drew Gerrard 21-06. Jim Jarvie and Stew Hamill 18-11. Brian Taylor, Mike Smith and Alex Morrice 18-14. Carol Smith, Malc Elmore, Rod Wright and Dave Whitworth 21-10.

THE BOWLS SHOP - YOUR ONE AND ORIGINAL

Pat and Mel Davis moved to Spain in 1987 and started the first English Embroidery service on the Costa Blanca, it was through this we became involved with all local Bowls Clubs as and when they started up. At the time bowls, shoes, clothing and equipment were not available in Spain, web sites were unheard of and a 10year wait for a landline was not uncommon. As demand grew we increased our business in becoming the first Bowls Supplier in Spain, initially we would drive or fly to the UK regularly collecting stock and delivering to local clubs. Living in Moraira we opened Spains first Bowls

Shop at Javea in 1997, as more clubs formed in the Torrevieja area we decided to transfer the business and purchased the shop in Los Montesinos. From an International Bowling family in Cheltenham, Pat’s mother taught many Blind and Visually Handicapped people to play bowls, she had previously learnt Chinese for this purpose in Hong Kong and received the MBE from the Queen for her efforts. In 1991 we organised the first tour of Blind Bowlers to Spain which was accompanied by Tony Allcock only days after winning the World Singles title, a tour so successful it was repeated many times. The Bowls Shop, with over 25 years experience, pride themselves on supplying quality goods at UK prices and is truly A One Stop Bowls Shop. The Bowls Shop offers Quality Goods at UK prices AND with Free Embroidery. In July and August t is open 11am to 2pm Monday – Wednesday – Friday www.thebowlsshopspain.com tel; 966 72 1945 or email:thebowlsshop@hotmail.com See our main ad below.

GREENLANDS BOWLS CLUB There's not much competitive bowling going on in the Costa Blanca (South) at the moment. With temperatures reaching the high 30s, the more sensible of us are either watering the garden, swimming a few lengths before savouring a cold beer/wine, or catching up with household chores that were put off during the winter months. Not so for the Kings Cup Monarchs crew, for yet again they faced another test of their endurance as they put to bed 2 more fixtures in a week. Both at home, the first was against Vistabella, who must be said put up a determined display, fully earning their 8-4 victory. Sandra Heath had a fine 21-18 victory in the ladies singles, whilst the rinks team of Sue Mahomet, Mike Veale, Lynn Greenland & Steve Cantley (15-12), also did their bit. For the visit of Country Bowls 48 hours later, it was a case of score reversal, as the Monarch won 3 disciplines and also outscored CB on overall shots by 2. The rinks won again (20-9), but this time it was Jan Pocock who led the way for Mike Veale, Lynn Greenland & Steve Cantley. A last end wonder wood by skip Mel Brown, aided by Sheila Stead & Steve Hibberd, was enough for the trips to

triumph 16-15, whilst Sandra Heath came up trumps in the singles (21-15). For those so inclined, there is also the ongoing SABA knockout cup matches, now entering the latter stages. Greenlands have also entered 2 ladies, and 1 gents team in the SABA pairs league, which are over halfway through completion. On a Thurs eve, the friendly (is there such a thing!) matches between Greenlands and Quesada, are in the 3rd week, with GBC currently out on top. Saturday morning (9.3010.00) sees the ever popular prize roll up, organised by Jim Oliver, then there is the 'come and go' internal club roll ups on Tues & Thurs mornings. The final bit of action from last week, involved our Premier 20 sides. Playing La Siesta home and away yielded just 2 points, courtesy of a home victory for Graham Bater in the singles (21-11).

VISTABELLA BOWLS CLUB Sponsored by Autos Direct San Miguel The good results kept coming for most of this week on Monday 8th our Kings Cup team made the short trip to Greenlands to face the Monarchs winning by 8 points to 4 and 92 shots to 69. Wins came from Ian Kenyon Men’s singles, Gail Watson and Fred Willshire in the pairs and also from Stuart Allman, Martin Foulcer and Brian Dunn in the trips. Sandra and Neil Burrows ably assisted by Bill Corbishley rounded off a good day by winning the Princes League 21 – 16. On Tuesday our Ladies 4 Wood Pairs team played Quesada M G and thanks to a good win at Quesada from Gail Watson and Barbara Brown we took the Overall shots by 33 to 32 and the points by 3 to 2. Later in the day the Premier 20 team had a great win over San Luis winning on 7 of the 8 disciplines. At home Maggie Furness had a momentous win against Keith Jones in the singles, Sheila Cox and Stuart Allman won the pairs following a great comeback and Tom Furness, Mike Cox, Bill

By Arthur Brown Corbishley and Arthur Brown took the rinks, while at San Luis we produced a clean sweep, Ian Kenyon won singles, Martin Foulcer and Richard Lee were successful in the pairs, Gail Watson (her second win of the day), Beryl Regan and Fred Willshire took a 1 shot win in the trips and Sandra Burrows, Les Barber, Neil Burrows and Mike Regan wrapped it up by winning the rinks to give us a 16 points to 2 win by 151 shots to 112. On Wednesday however San Luis got their revenge in the Kings Cup winning by 10 points to 2 and 108 shots to our 77. Our only saving grace were our trips team of Sandra Burrows, Martin Foulcer and Brian Dunn who gained our only 2 points. Our Internal Hot league started on Friday and seems to have got off to a good start.

COUNTRY BOWLS CLUB Two King's Cup matches for both squads this week, the Clarets had two away games, the first was at Quesada playing the Lions. The Clarets didn't give the league toppers an easy ride far from it, Geoff Paylor played a splendid Singles game to win the first two points with a 21-11 win. Steve Pearson & Peter Whitehall playing the Pairs were on their normal good form and picked up a great win against two of Quesada's best 23-20 and the Triples of Lynne Bishop, Brian Patton & Ken Cuthbert just pulled it off with a measure on the last end for a convincing win of 17-16. Overall shots, Merlots 86 (6) - 102 (6) Lions, a hard game but a pleasing result. The Second game for the Clarets took them to Greenlands to play the Monarchs. Geoff Paylor picked up another win, well done Geoff, 21-13. Steve Pearson & Peter Whitehall had another good win of 23-15. The Triples team of Lynne Bishop, Brian Patton & Ken Cuthbert just missed out this time by one shot 15-16. Overall shots were very close, Clarets 83 (4) - 85 (8) Monarchs.

Derek Gunning & Dave Chaplin won 15-12. Sandra Mcilroy, Joel Fernandez & Charlie Watkins lost by one shot 15-16. Overall shots, Merlots 79 (4) - 80 (8) Lords, can't get much closer than that!

IT’S PARTY TIME AT DAYA NUEVA CLUB DE FOOTBALL

In June Daya Nueva Club de Football held their end of season celebration at Restaurant YoYo in Daya Nueva. It was a bigger than usual celebration this year as the Infantils had won the Alicante G9 Championship. The trophy will not be presented until September/October but this did not make any difference to the party atmosphere. Along with all the players there were mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters and three ex-pat supporters and their wives. Restaurant YoYo laid on a fantastic array of food along with plenty of beer, wine and soft drinks. The noise level of the party became higher as more drinks were consumed. The players were presented with a gift each from the club and they in turn gave gifts to coach, Paco, and Vincente. The ex-pats : myself, Brian and Dean sponsored a number of trophies. These were for players' player, (Jesus) golden boot, (Marcos) with 19 goals. The best newcom-

er to the squad, (Alberto). Francisco was awarded a trophy for the outstanding player of the last 4 seasons, this is how long we have been following the team and how long this paper has carried their match reports. No player was left out as medals were awarded to all of them. The two goalkeepers, Danni and Miguel also received a trophy each from the club. It was a great celebration that went long into the evening from its start at 2.00pm. Can't wait for the party when the Division Trophy is in our hands. Bring it on!! On a personal note I would like to thank the players and families for accepting us into their football club and their beautiful village of Daya Nueva. The Photo shows Francisco receiving his award.

HERCULES CF EMBROILED IN MATCH FIXING ROW Once again Alicante’s Hercules Club de Football has been embroiled in a match fixing row which is threatening to overshadow the start of the country's top domestic league. The scandal surfaced when a complaint was made to UEFA by security staff from the betting agency Betfair about unusual betting trends on 8 June at the final Segunda A match of last season v Racing. UEFA investigators said that there were ‘strange and abnormal movements’ indicating that the match could possibly be rigged. It is suggested that the arrangement required a first half result favourable to the away team, Hercules, with a comeback by Racing in the second period. Unfortunately though, things did not go to plan, despite Hercules having a multitude of opportunities to score, including hitting the post on 4 occasions during the opening 45 minutes. Having been completely outplayed by Hercules the second half, however, saw Racing turn the tables, completely dominating the second period of the game and running out winners by 3-0.

Investigation into the case was conducted by U E F A ’ s Computer Fraud A g e n c y . Following complete domination of the opening half by Hercules they say that there was intense activity during the interval on the final result, pointing to a Hercules defeat by two goals or more. But Hercules are completely denying the allegations and have already requested that their lawyers respond to the accusations. They say that if UEFA are so sure there were betting irregularities they should be prepared to release the names of those involved. By failing to do so they are bringing the name of Hercules into disrepute which is completely unacceptable.

AFA ALZHEIMERS TORREVIEJA SWIMATHON About 150 spectators turned out to support this event, in the sunshine, at Torrevieja’s Municipal outside swimming pool on Saturday. The event started with the Costa Blanca Synchronised Swimming team entertaining everyone with an exhibition of individual and collective synchronised swimming that kept the crowd entranced for well over half an hour. Next up, local hero Adam Stewart swam his sponsored 1500 meters marathon and pleased the crowd by beating his own personal best by a full minute. Juan Angel, who was Master of Ceremonies, introduced each of the events and entertained the audience throughout the day with songs from his popular repertoire. The Raquel de Pena flamenco dancers performed a number of dances as part of their routine to wild applause. A sponsored swimming marathon was undertaken by Swimmers from “Club Natacion Torrevieja” which raised approx.. €500.00 The team comprised: Boys: Yuriy, Konstantin, Elian. Girls: Emma, Ruth, Louise, Piroska, Zoe,

Paula, Samira. Masters: Beth, Vicki, Gillan and club coach Juanma In total the team swam 28kms. The kids all swam 2km’s each made up of 800m warm up, then relays of medley and crawl – each swimmer doing 10 lengths of 100m’s, then to cool down a further 200m The Masters each swam 2kms - 1500m each before joining the relays and swimming another 300m each with a further 200m to cool down. The ages of the swimmers ranged from 9yrs to 69yrs !!! not bad really - apart from the fifties there was a swimmer from each decade !!! A raffle was held with tickets sold throughout the morning with the Alcalde Eduardo Dolon drawing the winning tickets and presenting the prizes. He was accompanied by the councillor for Sport, Luisma. It is hoped that the proceeds from the entrance fee, sponsored events and the raffle will exceed €2000 with a further €800.00 being donated by Barclays Bank through its Pensioners’ matched funding scheme.

(NEARLY) ALL CHANGE AT ELCHE? It would seem that plan B is in operation at

mighty La Liga after a gap of 24 years in the second division’s wilderness. Plan A (that’s only my vision/version) was to build on what was there already: use the spine of the team that got the Illicitanos promoted after years of heartache and nearlypromoted disappointments, and supplement this success with some necessary new blood in key positions. Hmm…what do I know? First out of the door was my player of the year, 27 year-old centre back and stalwart Xavier Etxeita on a free transfer to fellow La Liga side Athletico Bilbao. That the club have retained his partner, 34 year-old Peligrin is puzzling, he is on the wane to me and slowing up. Left back and free-kick specialist Edu Albacar is similarly retained, his eight goals last season says a lot, but Albacar is much better going forward than defensively covering, and I fear he will be badly undone this year. Of one of last year’s finds, right back Damian Suarez there is no mention yet of retainment. The Argentinian didn’t play in the last few games, and neither did heroic goalkeeper Manu Herrera who only conceded an amazing 27 goals in 42 games to ensure promotion. Midfield is a mystery: I have never been a fan of club captain David Generelo: he is slow, often caught in possession and gets booked too often and occasionally sent off. Yet he and midfield utility-man Sergio Mantecon (a better bet) are both retained on one-year contracts, and the disappointing young Valencian player Carles Gil has had his loan period extended. No mention of the industrious Alberto Rivera, a real worker and success in midfield last season, he is getting on at 34 but

Levante at the end of the season. Up until the last few promotionhunting seasons Elche had some horrendous starts, where the Franjiverdes lost their first halfdozen games, fired their manager like you do - and had to play catchup all season to stay up. Now staying up in the rarefied atmosphere of La Liga just has to be the priority of almost every team in that league with the exceptions of title-chasers Barcelona and Real Madrid - and that quest has got to be Elche’s sole mission. Are the Illicitanos ready? No, I would say, definitely not at the moment, but we still have a few weeks to go, and there is much to do to present the excited city with a team that can compete with the big boys. From the outside the mighty Martinez Valero stadium is being tarted up – mind you, it needed to be – but it is on the field where the changes will be needed most, and where the picture is most confusing currently. Next week a look at who has joined the club ready for the fascinating new season, some arranged friendlies and early La Liga fixtures for the Illicitanos. The demand for season tickets is continuing to exceed expectations

BY JOHN Elche CF for the exciting new season, when MCGREGOR the City of Palms football team returns to

to me is infinitely better than Generelo (anyone is…). Probably the most successful player of the year was top-scorer Coro, a midfielder-cum-striker from Girona who notched nine priceless goals for Elche last season, and to me is a must to retain: no news… Much was expected of the aptly-named (Luis) Angel when he returned unexpectedly mid-season from Levante, but his goals from the previous season dried up in the worrying end of season performances, where the Illicitanos only won four from fourteen. Elche’s second striker and crowd favourite Jordi Xumetra has already been sold to

Mucho Elche!
