Firstly there are 4 places available on the trip to Cadiz next week. 2 Spanish couples had to withdraw. So if you fancy a trip to a hotel in La Linea de Concepcion on the 2nd June for 4 nights until the 6th June for only €25 per person then call into the TH with your passport or NIE, on Monday to inform them of that. There are at least 2 expat couples already on the trip. Wish I could go but still waiting op date for Sue.
Secondly it looks as if we have some good news regarding our application for funds to make repairs to all the areas which were affected by the storm of September 2012. A communication has been received which gives us cause for hope but we need to examine the papers in depth before we can make any announcement. So I hope to be able to publish the detail of this next week.
Fran is going to produce the marble block for the RBL memorial early next week! He said.
I asked about the order for the street signs which we are still awaiting and Candido said we need to ask Paco but he is too busy with the Palaces fiesta today, so I will leave that until next week.
I asked Candido about the area, to the back of the Auroras, in La Alfoquia and he reiterated the fact which had told me many times before that we had run out of money to finish that area but there may be an option to use some other funds. He does have it in mind and hopes to finish it one of these days.
Regarding the WiFi almost all areas should now have good connections to the TH WiFi system as they have replaced nearly every part of it and recent tests seem to show it running in a stable fashion. That is unless you know different!
Regarding the Bowling Green we are still waiting for Nila to complete the works to our satisfaction before we can move on to the next stage. This has been slightly compounded by the fact that it looks like the guy who runs the gym is looking to quit. We had a short conversation about whether it may be worthwhile considering one company to run all the facilities at this location as they are all sports things, but no decision can be made until we have everything completed and discussed in pleno.
Regarding the rut in the road between Cucador and Los Llanos I again raised this issue and Luis informed me that due to the fact that the farmer had not made it good the TH would be resurfacing the road and claiming the money back from him.
Re the new street plan for Los Llanos it still needs amendments which I will try and get the architect to do next week and then we should be in a position to take it for manufacturing. Sorry for the delay (again!).
Thanks to the generosity of a number of you Shelagh Murdoch and Jock Tolley in particular we have been able to provide over 100 english books, loads of video tapes and DVDs to the village library in Zurgena. So hopefully we can develope that aspect of the biblioteca.
Finally just a reminder regarding the tour round the Spanish Legion base in June (date to be agreed) Anyone interested in this please let me know by next Wednesday as I need to finalise numbers.
As usual any questions or queries just email or ring.
