The Town Council of Granadilla de Abona, Tenerife has, temporarily banned bathing at the Central Beach of El Médano, La Tejita and El Chinchorro due to the rainwater run-off that occurred yesterday on Thursday, September 1.
The Town Hall has decided to close these bathing areas as a precaution and in order to guarantee the appropriate levels of safety for the population, while awaiting the results of the relevant counter-analyses that are being carried out by the Municipal Service itself.
As soon as the analyses are suitable for bathing, they will be reopened.
The news follows reports that the Generalitat of Valencia has awarded L’Afas del Pi a grant of €3,285.36 for the improvement and refurbishment of the point of care for assisted bathing for people with reduced or no mobility.
The Vice-presidency and Department of Equality and Inclusive Policies of the Generalitat Valenciana, made the award for the works to be carried out on the beach Raco de l’Albir.
Luis Morant, the Councillor for Beaches and Environment of L’Alfas del Pi, confirmed: “This grant will be used to improve accessibility conditions, with the purchase and installation of a new roll-up walkway to the seashore, with special features, with white stripes, for people with visual impairment”.
