Hello and welcome to the September issue of Soltalk. And breath! Yes we made it through August, often a challenge with the heat and number of visitors competing for the parking spaces and sun beds! September is my favourite month both weather wise (usually) and for the fact that Nerja is still full of visitors but not … overly full shall I say? Well as we all know power costs and availability have been “challenged” by the war in Ukraine but it is heartening to see that Spain is doing something to address the problem, in public buildings at least. They have set rules for on how much power can be used for heating/cooling and on illuminating buildings after 10pm. Other countries could take note.

Do you like walking and art? Then you won’t want to miss the Frigiliana Art Route, it takes place early next month. Apart from that we have plenty of local news and all our regular features including our popular “Jottings” where our Jottings team have scoured the UK and International press for the weird and wacky stories you might have missed. We hope you enjoy September and also enjoy this magazine. Please “like” us on Facebook (if you are on that) and thanks to all of you who already have.
