ITV looking for participants for a TV Series

ITV1 Seeks home owners for new series!

Hello! I am currently casting for the fifth series of ITV1's hugely popular
daytime show 'May The Best House Win'. We are coming to Spain to film 10
episodes and we are looking for English-speaking contributors who would like
to show off their home and compare it to others with the chance to win 1000
Euros along the way.

We are after a variety of houses to include - from self-built bungalows to
big refurbishments and colour-themed flats to villas filled with artefacts.
Anything goes really, but what we need are people who are passionate about
their home and are interested in a bit of fun competition by inviting three
others to judge their home and in turn going to their houses and giving
their opinions and scores.

I was wondering if you know of anyone - a friend, neighbour or client
perhaps - who might be interested in participating. If so, then please pass
on my details.

If there are any questions then please just let me know

Thank you!!

Spanish Postal System

Does any other area have a problem with the Correos? where I live La Vinuela
it is very bad, we have the usual pigeon hole boxes but they can't even put
the letters/cards or parcel pick up notices in the right boxes, very often
our post will be left sticking out so anybody can take it or go to another
Urbanization altogether, very frustrating, please let me know if anyone else
has any of these problems.

maternity homes in South Africa and Uganda last week. They are pictured on

A big thank you to all who have contributed so far.

There is still a need for more jumpers for new and premature babies, who

from the website and drop any finished
articles at Sands & C on the paseo at Torrox Costa (near the lighthouse) or
at Todo Papel in Cómpeta.

Donations of wool, knitting needles (size 8, 4mm) or old hand-knitted
garments to unpick and reknit would also be gratefully received.

If you would like to knit and have a chat, or you want to pick up some
information and a pattern, we have two Knit Outs next week.

Monday at the Teteria in Cómpeta, 3:00 – 4:30pm

Tuesday at Sands & C, Torrox Costa, 2:00 – 5:00pm

You don't even need to be a confident knitter – there is an extra jumper
started that you can add a few rows to, if you just want to drop by and have
a go!

Hi, just a word to the wise, if you are about to fit out a new kitchen or
refurb an old one. Do not have dark worktops in a tropical or sub-tropical
climate. Why? Because you can't see the ants until they are climbing on the
plates that you are serving dinner on! These ants are black and very tiny.
The worktops are washed down several times a day and any ant trails are
demolished with washing up liquid. It kills them dead and ants won't cross
it. They still find a way though, days later.
There is one way around this of course, if you must have dark worktops, use
black plates...
Cheers, Keith

Reputable a/c installer & noisy boiler

Can anybody please recommend a good a/c installer.
In addition, we have a noisy water boiler (electric) which makes a dreadful
noise whenever a tap is turned on or off in the house. It may be air in the
system, we are unsure. Guests arrive next weekend and we need it sorted.
Anybody got a solution? Or can anyone recommend a plumber (Spanish or
English). Thanks in advance. Nigel.
