New lane

Free films
A TOTAL of fifteen films on various topics will be screened in different parts of Palma, starting on Friday July 2.  Admission is free, but due to health restrictions generated by the pandemic it will be necessary to make a reservation through www.palma.cat.
Illicit pool
WHEN residents in a street in Palma heard that the Local Police and media were aware that they had erected a small swimming pool in a public road without permission, they quickly dismantled it.
Wassup!
A NEW WhatsApp number 626 035 035 will allow Palma residents to send photographs and complaints about the state of roads at any time and the council will then respond appropriately.

Cracking down
THE Mayor of Palma has publicly pledged that his council will not tolerate drunken behaviour and has instructed the Local Police to patrol the Playa de Palma this weekend to discourage anti-social activity.
