BENALMADENA Mayor accompanied Civil Protection volunteers in their traditional floral offering to the Virgin of Lourdes on February 11.
Also present were a number of councillors and representatives of the National Police, Local Police and Benalmadena Firefighters.
“Today we accompany the Civil Protection volunteers on the day of their patron saint, a special day for them and for the devotees of the Virgin of Lourdes: from here I want to thank all the residents who throughout the year take care of maintaining this grotto in perfect condition”, declared Mayor Victor Navas.
“It is also a day to thank the Civil Protection volunteers for the work they do for the town, their contribution has been very important in Benalmadena not only for the development of many activities such as popular races or the Three Kings Parade, but during the most difficult moments of the pandemic, when the scope and danger of the virus were not yet known, facilitating tasks such as the distribution of food and masks” Navas highlighted.
The director of the Benalmadena Civil Protection Volunteer Group, Pepe Aguilar, thanked all the colleagues from the town and other neighbouring municipalities, especially the Alhaurín group, for their work and involvement.
“In Civil Protection we are volunteers, but we do not hesitate to always contribute our grain of sand and to work for the municipality and the fact that our work is voluntary does not mean that it is not carried out professionally” Aguilar observed.
