This Saturday we are having the Flamenco Experience Show in the theatre in Zurgena.

This show which is to be presented by top quality Flamenco performers was sold out within days of releasing the tickets. In fact we could have sold them 2 or 3 times over.

As a result of the demand for this show I have discussed with the Mayor whether we could organise a second show later in the year. I had to ask as we have to finance a small amount of the equipment. After a discussion of the value of this to the village he agreed.

We will discuss and identify a suitable date and I will post on here, probably next week.

International Womens Day Presentations

This evening (Saturday 17th March) in recognition of International Womens Day a presentation was made to women of the village who had contributed to the community in various ways.

Nearly 20 women were so recognised, from a 96 year old from Los Llanos Del Peral, to a thirty  something from Zurgena.

Each was presented to the audience (which numbered over 80) and was given a ceramic plaque as a memento.

I was privileged to once again be able to present, to another British resident this year,.

Mrs Julie Hawkins, who had been nominated for her charitable acts and work in both the British and Spanish communities, was the recipient from our community this year.

Possible Interruption to Water

There is a large water pipe burst in Cucador just below the bridge. The last time this occurred the water was cut off to most of the area to the north of Cucador and part of Los Carasoles and was off for hours.

Just posting this as a warning of a potential interruption to the water supply for those areas. I do not know for sure, that it will occur, but thought it better to warn.

Calling all Walkers & Gabriels Body found

Firstly the sad news that the Guardia Civil found the body of little 8 year Gabriel in the boot of a car, owned by the girlfriend of his father, this morning.

Now I have an idea which I would like to progress this year. I know many of you enjoy the pleasure of walking around various parts of our municipality and I thought that it would be a good idea if we created a publication listing a selection of such walks.

Now the difficult bit! I am looking for assistance from any of you who are keen walkers.

What I am looking for is people who could supply a sketch plan of a walk, with directions/instructions and distances. All walks submitted would be checked to ensure accessibility and those selected would go into the book, with a credit included on the cover for each contributor.

There is no rush for this but I would like to have a draft ready for early to middle of summer. If you think you could help please let me know.
