Mobile Phone Repair

 Does anyone know anyone who repairs smart phones..........stuartburnett 53 at g mail dot com          665190121

Education Opportunity ?

After falling in love with Competa we are thinking of moving out there from the UK and setting up a business however we need some opinions regarding English Education as we have six year old twins (girls – Charlotte & Amelie).
Our understanding is that the village school teachers will  be speaking Spanish (as expected), so our question is how are expats educating their children in English, i.e. maths, hand writing, spelling and everything else they need to learn at this informative stage ?
All views welcome, we know there is an International School in Nerja however we don’t have funds for that at this point.
Many thanks.
Kind Regards

She highly recommended them.

Lady near Comares

There's a lady just outside of Comares who sells ceramics/lamps/Arabian plates and etc from her house, and does 'teas' there as well.
I think she opens only one day each week.
Does anyone know which day this might be?

What's on Jommy's Bar

What's On - Dutch Market

 SELL for FREE! Rastrillo. Steet PARTY!
"VRIJMARKT" (litteraly a free marketplace/garage sale in the street)
A wonderful Dutch tradition is coming to Comares/los Ventorros!
After the abdication of queen Beatrix of Holland, king William Alexander and queen Maxima have taken over her position. Celebrating the queens birthday, a national holiday in Holland, always took place on 30th April, called Queen's Day. Birthday of the new King is on Sunday 27 April. And it is now called "Koningsdag" (King's Day) ofcourse.
Since Table Mountain Comares is "half Dutch" we will make a big celebration in the street! And you don't have to be Dutch to enjoy that...
Basically, this traditional "VRIJMARKT" means that everyone, young and old, in Holland can sell anything that day right on the street. Stuff you don't need or want, clothes, fruits from your garden, handicrafts, bric-abrac, anything! Just display it on the street/sidewalk using a table, sheet or just nothing. You can also make music or perform and ask listeners for a coin. Anything to earn a few extra euro's. Check out the pictures to get a taste. AND IT IS FREE!!! NO CHARGES!!! You can not reserve a space or table, just pick a spot when you're there.
If you can, dress in orange colours, the Dutch national colour. Table Mountain rest./bar will also be "dressed for the occasion", in orange ofcourse...
Come along everybody, have a wonderful day in los Ventorros. There will be a BBQ, an outside BAR, music, food and fun! Bring your kids too! Invite all your friends, maybe they find a BARGAIN or have stuff to sell themselves at Table Mountain's
See you on SUNDAY the 27th of April from 11:00. KING'S DAY!

Table Top Fridge Needed Please

Hi digamites
Popping over to blighty for a few day, I was wondering if any one had a small table top fridge we could buy or borrow from them.
Plug shape not important as we have adaptor each way.
We are up in Sedella but drive to the coast on a regular basis so collection not a prob.

Wacky Race - this is your very last chance to sign up for the brilliant Wacky Race taking place on Sunday, 27th April. Only 5 euros per vehicle.
What better way to learn a little more about the surrounding villages and to sample Bar Lorena´s delicious paella afterwards.
Sign up either with Todo Papel or contact Scott  on
Scott has put a lot of work into making this day a success so come along in whatever vehicle that takes your fancy, dressed in your very best wacky outfit and give your brain a workout!
This will give the winner an opportunity to have a beautiful trophy cup engraved with his/her name on it.
See you there - brrrrmmm brrrrmmm - from CAMPO

Internet Provider - an Alternative

Orange have a great package going - providing internet, telephone (with free calls) and mobile (with some free usage) for Euro 35 (until end of year, and after that Euro 35 + IVA).  It is G4 speed but also works on G3.  It is provided by satellite and no need for a telephone cable for the 'landline', which makes it very appealing for those in the campo.   is the site in English, or    in Spanish
Several Digamites said they used Orange Mifi with good results, so this package is definitely worth looking into for all those disgruntled with their current provider - especially for those without a cabled landline.

Parking Fines

Before I begin this post, can I just say, I don't condone illegal parking. But is there someone out there who can explain the parking fine amounts please.
Is it up to the Policeman to charge what he thinks or is there a parking fine menu?
Over the years here in Torrox, I have known of a few people (& this does include me) who have had fines of 300 euros for parking in front of the tobacconist, a guy yesterday 200 euros for parking in San Roque, me in my street (obviously parked illegally) along with four other cars, but mine was the only one with a parking ticket, 150 euros.
 I'm pretty sure that parking fines in the centre of any UK city wouldn't be that high, or am I wrong?
300 euros fine, in a Spanish village!
I would imagine that would amount to a weeks wages for most people, it would be like fining someone £500 for illegally parking in Frinton on Sea England.
I know if the fine is paid before a certain time its reduced, but lets be honest, half of 300 is still obscene in my book!
Just to put things into perspective (I know this happens worldwide), just over a year ago, some idiot pulled a knife on me, he was taken to court, found guilty, 120 euros fine,
 I rest my case! LJ

Form S1 - Responses

You need to go to the Social Security (INSS) office in Velez which is next to the Centro de Salud Sur (Health Centre). No appointment needed, you just tell the Receptionist what you have come for and she will give you a number (like in supermarkets). Then sit and wait for your number to come up on the screen.
Make sure you have all the documents you need, passport etc. Both originals and a photocopy of everything. And someone to translate for you if your Spanish isn't up to it. 
In answer to Kay`s message re; S1 form. 
You have to take the form to the Velezmalaga centro de salud, along with two photos, your passport and a copy of your passport , your residencia and a copy of same.  You also need to take an interpreter with you.  You do need to make an appointment, but I don`t know if you can do it online.
I hope this is helpful.  I am available if you need an interpreter.

Help! I was away for two months and when I got back I had rats nesting in my roof.
The roof space is only 6 inches high, so I can't get into it.
I've put down humane traps then regular traps then poison and even the dreaded rat glue and they just ignore them all.
My neighbour's cats have been given free rein in my house, but the little buggers stay up in the roof and on the pantry shelves.
I don't have anything against mice or rats per se, but they are in my kitchen now and that's dangerous.
Any suggestions? Maybe some one out there has a couple of ferrets!
indigosansom at g mail dot com.
Or write to Digame, digametorrox @      I'm sure there are others out there with rats or mice
