Just to add that the adults race starts at 11.0am and the kids at 10.0am

I am also advised that we will be having a magician performing for the kids on Friday  the 16th October at 8.0pm.

Another Favourable Court Result (Update)

The Audience Provincial (Superior Court) has this week made a final ruling on another one of the outstanding court cases regarding building licences in Zurgena and included, in the judicial summary, was the fact that the 3 judges, sitting on the case, ruled that the land was urban and that the issue of the licences etc had been done correctly by Zurgena.

This case also creates a further precedent supporting the THs case for the outstanding ones. This Court is the highest that can rule on these matters and there is therefore no avenue left open for any further appeal in this case.

You can ignore the way La Voz has reported this as we do not recognise its interpretation of the ruling and will examine how they have reported it.

The case relates to the issue of 5 building licences for houses built on a piece of land between Cucador and Los Carasoles. Of the 5 licences granted only 2 houses were built and both of those are unoccupied.

Harvest Festival Donations

The Church of Los Llanos del Peral held their Harvest Festival service yesterday and then donated the proceeds to be distributed to the needy of our villages.

The member of the Council with responsibility for the distribution of aid to the poor has a list of families which require help an the food will be divided into parcels for distribution to those families.

I also understand that the church intend placing boxes in various locations such as the Town Hall, CATS in La Alfoquia and others where people can deposit any contributions they wish and this will be likewise distributed.

In the photo below are from left to right Janet Smith, Luiz Diaz Garcia (Alcalde), Richard Gall, Dudley Reily, Allan Drummond, Margie Gall and myself.

Harvest Festival Service

The people who run the Anglican Church in Los Llanos del Peral have asked that I publish the fact that this coming Sunday at 11.0am they will be holding a (non communion) Harvest Festival Service at 11.0am. They are following this with a bring and share lunch which previously has been very well received.

If you are interested in joining them you are most welcome. The church is beginning to become quite integrated with the community and their collection of foodstuffs is now being shared with the poorer families of our villages. So I commend their services to you and any donations of non perishable food on the day or thereafter will go to the poorest in our communities

Blood Donors

After being told that there was not a problem with UK people giving blood it turns out that that is not quite the case. If you are from the UK over 60 and/or lived in the UK during the mad cow era then they will not take your blood.

Sorry to anyone who attempted to give blood today but I was relaying what I had been told!
