Repair work
FOUR sections of the promenade running from La Bajadilla to Puerto Banus, a popular area for walking, are being repaired by 15 Marbella Council workers aided by teams of blacksmiths and painters as railings need attention as well as some 279 streetlights with work continuing until May.

A TOTAL of 41 unemployed people nominated by the Junta de Andalucia will be involved until October in undertaking work to clear stream beds and clean up municipal land in Fuengirola to prevent the possibility of fires and to make the areas more attractive for residents.
Gender violence
BENALMADENA mayor, Victor Navas met with the National Police in the town on March 9 to discuss how best the Council and the special unit responsible for gender violence can (in his words) “work together and reinforce all the necessary resources to end this social scourge.”
