Highly Recommended Plumber

Following earlier recommendations on Digame, I asked Oscar Pinazo to install a water filtration system.
Despite  the terrible weather on Wednesday, he arrived on time,  and installed the system.
He also fixed my hot water heater and tightened a loose sink tap at the same time.
He is quick and efficient, no job too small.
Highly recommended.

Changes at Cómpeta Surgery

I regret to inform you all that the wonderful Dr Javier Medal will be leaving Competa surgery tomorrow Friday. 
He will be moving to Sayalonga surgery and we will have a new GP, Oscar, who comes from Torrox Pueblo.
 I am devastated, as will you all be I'm sure.

Plasterer recommendation

I would like to highly recommend a local Spanish man for the excellent plastering work he recently carried out for us. 
He arrived promptly to give us an estimate, turned up on time, tidied up afterwards and produced a beautiful finish. 
Overall he provided a very efficient and competitively priced service. 
He is very pleasant, from Torrox and his name is Jorge. 
He can be contacted on 695 466 319.   John

Civic Shame - Responses

Having just returned from my lovely Torrox all I can say to Gordon is, have you been to England recently.  The streets in Dover are cleaned regularly but there are never enough bins due to most of them being removed when Thatcher was in power, this was due to bombs etc.
I walked around Torrox village and thought how delightful it was, you must try and think about the people you live with Gordon, mainly they come from an agricultural background where the dog just defecated on the land during the day when the families where on the their fincas working the land.
 Huge changes have occurred in Spain in the last 20 years.
 People don't see a bit of dog's dirt as a major problem they are more worried about paying the bills. 
You could always lobby the council to put in doggie bins.
Seasons greeting one and all.
I feel Gordon's distress at the state of his village.
I would suggest he does what someone once did in the UK – walk around with a can of fluorescent paint and spray every mound.  It made the TV News!
It might be an idea to contact The Olive press with a few photos of the results. 
At least it will bring some attention. 
When walking my dog I always carry  ‘poo’ bags and do not hesitate to offer one to anyone who allows their dog to foul. 
The look on their faces when they clean it up  is priceless, no one has dared to decline though.
Further to Gordon’s plea. 
He should visit the school and have a word with the head master taking with him a copy of this document 
He could also put up some flyers from the attached photos

Advice Please about my Pool

Have drained my pool to make repair. Before filling again will attempt to re grout, but as we know unless you can get a fixing it will soon come out.
Is there a good whitener  out there and any kind of clear paint on seal that can be used with success.

Food bank at the Phoenix Club

The Phoenix Club have commenced their Christmas collection of food for Los Angeles de
Axarquia and La Cruz Roja, the Spanish Red Cross, Axarquia to be donated in December.
The Angels of Axarquia feed families in need at breakfast and in the evening, at their soup
kitchen just outside the indoor market in Torre del Mar.  The families who queue for food grow
every day and they need our help.
La Cruz Roja help families in the whole of our region and they too are finding it increasingly
difficult to keep up with the demand.
If you can help by donating any dry foodstuffs, (preferably in twos which makes it easier to
share out) we would be most grateful.  Pulses, rice, pastas, oils, all help towards filling a
basket of food for these families.
Let us do our bit to help and be generous to those less fortunate than ourselves.  We will
continue to collect food until the 16th December when we will invite the Presidents of both local
charities to come in and collect our gift to them on that day.
The Phoenix Club meet every Tuesday between 12 and 2 at the restaurant above Supersol in
Torre del Mar.  However, donations can be made at any time, just pop upstairs and leave it on
one of the tables.  Thank you!

Civic Shame for Torrox Pueblo

Can there be any member of the Torrox administration who can walk the streets of the pueblo without feeling shame at the state of the filthy streets?
Wherever one dares to turn there is animal faeces underfoot. It must be on the shoes of almost every child who walks to school.  
Does no one understand that contact with dog faeces can cause blindness in children? 
And as for groups of tourists playing hop scotch around the filth........why would anyone wish to return here once they have scraped their last visit from their shoes?
And please don't tell us  that owners can face a 600 euro fine.
 I have seen a dog owner let their animal from the house to defecate...watched by a passing policeman.
If it wasn't such a disgrace it would make a cat laugh!

Final Post from Sabadell Bank

My name is Miguel Angel Miró and I work as Banking Advisor in Banco Sabadell in Torrox
Branch . I  have been working in Banks since 1999 and from my point of view and profesional
experience I would say that the most important thing in a bank for a customer is to know the
terms and conditions of any product they contract. For that, is very important that the
profesional staff from the bank explain very clearly all the questions and that the customers
confirm that they understand. Finally the customer will decide if that product suits or not their
needs. I have seen a few comments in your web site about  Banco Sabadell charges and
commisisons and I can say that we have a few types of current accounts some of them are
FREE OF CHARGES like our Expansion Account in which if you deposit 700 € a month you
will not pay maintenace or administration fees or debit cards or credit cards , free transfers in
euros in the EEA,...and you receive 3 % cash back on your main direct debited domestic bills
up to 20 euros per month ( electricity, gas , fixed or mobile telephone and internet ). All of our
staff try to offer a good and profesional service and the customers must to evaluate if the
service received it worth the posible commission they pay ( in the case of our Expansion
Account is FREE ).  For more information for people which residence in Torrox area please do
not hesitate to contact with me at

Lost a Mobile??

A bit convoluted but my Spanish neighbour on Calle Cordoba in Torrox pueblo found a mobile in the street Tuesday.
 I don't know the make or number of it, but she says it's foreign-owned. 
Her daughter has taken it home with her, so if you have lost a mobile, we can probably track it down for you.

Visit to an Indian restaurant Shalimar Indian Restaurant in Torrox Pueblo

 I read on this website about an Indian restaurant in Torrox Pueblo.
We went to find another one in Torrox Costa but it was closed, so I looked on my phone to find any other close by and saw this comment on Digame and the writer of the comment  was saying how good it was, so
off we went to find it.
5 of us in the afternoon, I called the number for the Indian and they said
they opened till 4pm in the afternoon.
The restaurant is called Shalimar Indian Restaurant and it's in Torrox Pueblo Centro not far from the church. Not easy to find but we did.
This place is only small and when we looked at it 4 out of 5 of us were a bit unsure about going in, but in we
went by this time it was 3.30pm
We ordered drinks then our food. What a surprise for everyone
It was excellent from onion bhaji to Naan bread to the main course it was fantastic.
I had a Chicken shashlik with a Madras sauce and the others had menu deldia.
I can highly recommend the Shalimar Indian Restaurant.
And by the way -  I am no way connected to this restaurant just someone who likes curry.
We live near Alcaucin so it's not on our doorstep but well worth the trip to have a decent curry there's no other that can hold a candle to this.
Try it
you won't be disappointment.
Their number is 952 538's in C/La Fuente, Torrox Pueblo.
And they do take away.

Experienced carer available.

I can cover all around Rincon del la Victoria,Torre del Mar and Riogordo area and further afield, if needed.
I am reliable, compassionate and honest.
I enjoy looking after elderlypeople and I have a car and Spanish driving licence.
I am a confident and outgoing person with a good sense of humor and Ialso speak three languages.
My cooking skills are adaptable to suit individual client tastes andspecial needs.
References are available.
