Dear Euro Weekly News,
The hours given to different age groups of the community is just not working. On the first day that children with a parent were allowed out it seemed like every child was out enjoying themselves, a week on, they have 6 hours to exercise, where have they all gone, our promenade is now deserted between the hours of 12 and 6, however between 6 am and 10 am the same areas are crowded, not only with the designated age group but also some children and very many over 70’s who obviously can’t wait until 10 am to take their exercise. The town centre was as busy as before the lockdown at midday today, social distancing has disappeared. Short memories!! And then the world will wonder why there is a second wave of the virus. Prevention not cure, I say.
Because of lockdown, I’m here in Brighton & Hove with time to tidy up my office. (I used to run a business, now retired.) I’ve just found press cuttings from Euro Weekly News November 2015 and it includes your article about Loose Women. My late husband and I bought a little flat in Villajoyosa back in 1982 and I still go there every April and November. I always get EWN when I’m there and enjoy your articles. I should be there now, of course, a terrific disappointment. I’m just hoping that everything will be sorted by November! I have a great time in Spain. I love jumping on the bus into Benidorm to see drag shows, comedy, singers, but I’m also the British Patron of Vilamuseu. They have a terrific collection with some unique pieces. My favourite era is the Romans, so I love walking over to the Tower of San Josep, the tallest Roman funerary monument in Spain. To thank me for my support (translations, financial) they named the gardens after me. Have you ever been to Villajoyosa? It’s such a vibrant place, fishing fleet, market, I love it. Are your articles available online? Looking forward to my next visit and getting Euro Weekly News.
All the best
Dear Euro Weekly,
I booked a flight with Ryanair from Alicante to London Gatwick in March. I also booked a hotel and airport parking. I took out Ryanair insurance. The week before you travel I started coughing and felt unwell. On the advice of the Spanish medical contact service, I was advised not to travel, I didn’t. I managed to cancel my hotel and airport parking without any financial loss. I contacted Ryanair insurance provider to advise them, again before my travel. No response to date. I have emailed them on another two occasions since. Again, no reply. Ryanair is a money-making organisation who think nothing for their customers. The flights were £124.39. Not a great sum but now, as a regular on Ryanair in the past, I would have to think twice about using them again.
