News Letter July 2016

 Asociacion de Vecinos – Sierra de Altea C.I.F. : G53784336 BUZON 155, Sierra de Altea Altea La Vella ALICANTE, 03599 ESPANA Web: www.avsa.tigbos.com Contacto: avsavecinos@gmail.com  SECRETARY – MATT KING - 678657136  JULY 2016 Dear Members, The Summer Party over, plasters applied to feet and suitable amounts of Paracetamol administered the morning after, we can report that the event was a great success. One slight problem was that the splendidly produced Menus for the tables – were forgotten by your secretary (me) to collect – however I have now posted them on the Vecinos noticeboard at the Buzones…….to remind those who came what they ate, and for those who were unable to make it this year to see what they missed. The food and ambience was tremendous and a wonderful turnout of 105 members and guests made it a thoroughly enjoyable event – and the “Surprise Lottery” with 3 prizes donated by the Restaurant at Don Cayo of 2 bottles of lovely wine and a first prize of a Meal for 2 at the restaurant, won by new members this year, Peter Risdale and Miriam Blok was an added bonus. Perhaps we can spread the word and get more Neighbour’s to attend next year?? If you enjoyed the music sufficiently, then I am available for hire for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Bah Mitzvah’s , Bat Mitzvah’s or any ceremony public or private…please just get in touch…that is if I am still here and haven’t been voted out by my fellow countrymen, who I can only apologise for in the circumstances with Brexit….!!!!! Terry Miles our Web Master and Photographer has taken some great photos and when he has some time will put them on the Web page www.avsavecinos.tigbos.com so please take a look in the next few days. Full of updated information on the area and what is happening it is always worth checking up on current events. Talking of which – summer has arrived and with the higher temperatures there is a need for more care. Please use at all times an appropriate Factor Sun Cream, if not on your accustomed bodies, then for your guests or youngsters visiting. Skin Cancer is on the increase everywhere and we know it is caused a lot by the sun’s harmful rays so please be very careful. Secondly, there are more visitors in the area now which sadly brings in the un-invited elements into our community also. Please be vigilant and if you see something strange happening or someone who doesn’t quite fit into the area – ring 112 straightway…the Police generally would rather be called out on a wasted journey than to have a house or several houses broken into. Thirdly, we have had no rain……my regular morning Rain Dances (which have also created some neighbourly interest!!) haven’t worked and we are dreadfully low on water reserves in the whole area. Please be careful when using water with everything and so not let taps drip or run and over water anything…. Not only is this a water problem but also a fire risk and should you see any problems in of the roads or countryside then please take it upon yourself to call Apobersa on 965 84 61 99 or out of hours on 676 980 909 for water problems and 112 for the Fire Service (Bomberos) All details can be found on the AVASAVECINOS website. On behalf of the Committee, I wish you a very pleasant happy and safe Holiday Season and Look forward to seeing you ALL at the AGM full details of which I will post to you soon. Best Regards Matthew King Secretary
