Car Tax Reminder

Just a quick reminder that car tax bills are NOT being posted out this year.

If you have a car, which you own and have owned prior to the 1st January 2018, then the car tax is due and payable before the 5th June. If the tax is not paid by then then additional costs will be incurred.

To obtain a printed copy of the bill just call into the TH and ask Andreas to print a copy off which you can then pay at your bank.

Flamenco 2nd June

Francesca who is organising the Flamenco event on 2nd June at 8.0pm has asked me to publish this short descriptive as she feels some people are not aware of what it consists.

For those looking for TRADITIONAL FLAMENCO DANCE do not miss the opportunity to see some of Granada´s top artists performing in the Municipal Theatre of Zurgena.
This performance includes a presentation in English to help explain some of the intricacies of the art of Flamenco.
This is the second event and is a different performance to the one these artists presented back in March. So do not miss the chance to deepen your understanding of Flamenco. These artists always offer an extremely high dance content as that is the aspect of Flamenco which the public tend to favour watching.
Male artist Paco Fernandez is one of Granada´s leading young stars and has just returned from his tour in the United States.
The group offer male and female dance (very different in style) gypsy song and dance.
Tickets €15 available from me or at the kiosk in Mojacar Commercial Centre.

Last Nights Free Concert

I, together with about 25 others, attended the free concert in the Theatre.

It was a shame that so few turned up as the music was amazing. The quality of the musicianship of the performers was top quality and has given me a new appreciation of Flamenco music.

Sergio de Lope was the flautist backed by a fantastic acoustic guitarist and an amazing electric bass. I have never seen a percussionist play so much of his equipment by hand.

A really fantastic evening.

Calle Finlandia Work

Once again I have to apologise for the delay in getting this work done.

I raise this issue on a  weekly basis with my colleagues in the Town Hall in an effort to make it happen but keep failing!

I have now received another reason why the contracted company have not yet started work. It transpires that the Diputacion who awarded the contract have not yet paid the company for the past 3 months work and therefore the contracted company (Nila) are unwilling to start another expensive project until they have been paid for their past work.

I am going to try again today to see if there is anyway we can apply pressure to get them to pay Nila something so they can start wok on this greatly overdue repair.

Sorry.

Just a reminder to those who have paid for the show on the 2nd June and only have receipts. If you can collect your tickets from me in exchange for your receipts it would help us.

Waste Disposal

It would appear that I need to restate the details of how to dispose of waste.

Basuras (rubbish bins) It would appear that some of our newer residents are unaware of their responsibilities regarding rubbish. Basuras are primarily for household waste.

Firstly if you have a recycling bins please use them for the purposes shown.

Secondly if you have any large items or items that you feel could be recycled you can place them by the bins just prior to the 12th and 27th of each month as that is when the Consorcio remove such things.

Please do not leave builders rubble, garden refuse etc at the side of the Basuras as the Consorrcio will not dispose them and that leads to areas looking really scruffy.

Any large scale garden refuse etc can be disposed of at the centre in Arbloeas their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/Arboleas-Recycling-Centre-262281380865976/

The system here makes disposal of rubbish really easy and there is no excuse for dumping. Please be considerate.
