Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez visits La Palma in the Canary Islands.
Spain’s president, Pedro Sánchez, has returned to La Palma today, Sunday, October 3, to learn about the priorities and recovery proposals of the mayors of the municipalities affected by the volcano eruption, the Cabildo de La Palma and the Regional Executive.
The President toured the areas affected by the eruption of the volcano on La Palma and has acknowledged the emergency coordination work carried out from the advanced command post, installed in the visitor centre of the Caldera de Taburiente National Park.
The Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, said this week that,” Sánchez’s third trip “is a demonstration of the Executive’s commitment to the island.”
The volcanic eruption began on September 19 and was centred around the municipality of El Paso. Four days later, Pedro Sánchez travelled to the island along with the king and Queen of Spain, after returning from a trip to New York.
Bolaños announced that the Council of Ministers had agreed to allocate 10.5 million euros to La Palma and has ensured that in the coming days the money will be available to the authorities for the purchase of homes for residents that had lost their properties.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
