Hello and welcome to the online-only April edition of Soltalk. Due to the ongoing crisis we are not able to print and distribute hard copies of the magazine as usual but that has not prevented us preparing the magazine to go online. We have done our best under the circumstances, with many of our clients not open. Some advertisements are repeats of last month, despite the fact that as we launch on April 1st many of these businesses will still be on lockdown, however our attempt is to bring a bit of continuity and normality into the lives of our readers. 

On behalf of our advertisers and ourselves, we would like to congratulate everyone on the sacrifices you are making in an attempt to combat this awful virus and hope that you and your families all stay safe and well. For those of you that are working or volunteering to help others (like Simon from Food for Thought who I saw on Facebook preparing meals for the homeless of Nerja) well done and thank you. To all the health workers, police, supermarket staff, town hall staff, chemists, delivery drivers, volunteers and many more who are still working despite the risk to themselves, another huge thank you. 

As so many of us are now spending a lot of time at home and online which you probably are if you are reading this now, we have one small request. If you have not already liked us on Facebook (if you are on Facebook) please could you do that now? We have over 900 likes and would love to reach 1,000. Plus our Facebook page has regular updates regarding the lockdown which we receive from the Town Hall almost daily, so it is a good way of keeping in touch.
