Thanks Again to the Church at Los Llanos Del Peral

Once again we have to thank the congregation of the church at Los Llanos del Peral for their generosity.

We have received another 12 large food parcels for the needy of the village and these will be distributed during Zurgena Fiesta week.

Waste Disposal

We tried to obtain permission to finance a few skips to receive and dispose of garden and building waste for our own municipality however, we discovered that we were too small to warrant the financial support for that so I am afraid we have to use the only one available which is the one at Arboleas. I was informed that this site was closed but have checked today and although closed on Wednesdays it is open 0900 x 1300 and 1700 x 1900 Monday Tuesday Thursday and Fridays. There is a small charge for builders and garden rubbish but it is very small.

The site has a website at punto limp arboleas


Almeria Trip

There are limited spaces available for a trip to Almeria on the 13th September.

The trip is organised by the Diputacion of Almeria Health department and the first place to visit will be a sports centre where the participants will have a gentle work out. They then go for some lunch before going on a tour of the Alcazaba in the afternoon.

The total cost of the trip including lunch and coach is €10. 

If interested please contact the Town Hall as soon as you can.

Mobile Phone Application Update & Possible Computer Course

The mobile phone application for the town Hall in English is doing very well with an average of 10 new downloads each day. (can be downloaded for Android or Mac in the usual places any problems or if you are unsure please contact me).

We will increase the content over time but due to holidays little has been added lately. Remember there is the function to report issues, and/or forward photos of anything you think we should be aware of, through this medium.

The promotional video is being well received with a total of 1,140 views  so far and with feedback that suggests it is really helping to promote our area. We are not even pushing it yet, as we felt it better to wait until the PGOU is approved, and then really promote it.

I am aware that some people may have limited computer skills which may affect their ability to access some of our content and with this mind I am looking at holding small basic courses in english at the Town Hall to cover the use of the app, the web site and basic computer skills. If this is something you may be interested in please contact me at the usual email address jimszurgena@gmail.com and include what areas you would like some assistance in and we will endeavour to do that.

Sad News and Help

Firstly the sad news that our bi lingual helper in the Town Hall Andreas Bonillo (Andrew) has lost his father today. It was a sudden death but he had had health problems over the past few years.

Secondly a plea for accommodation. Does anyone know of a 2/3 bedroom villa available for rent at around €400 pm. We have family who have young children who need a place to rent fairly urgently. If you know of anywhere please contact me and I will pass the details on. The children go to school in La Alfoquia so it needs to be fairly local.
