Animal killers PET-OWNERS in Petrer were warned not to walk dogs on wasteland behind the Santo Domingo Savio school after sausages laced with nails were found there.  This is a repetition of November 2020 when six dogs died and 10 needed vet treatment after eating sausages with pins inside them.

New pipes WORK began in Dolores on renovating water mains in Calle Reverendo Alonso Romera and renewing waterpipes linking to individual buildings.  The €59,532 project enters plans which the town hall is now drawing up to remodel the El Rancho neighbourhood, 100 per cent financed by the Diputacion provincial council.

More doctors TWO more doctors, one of them a paediatrician, have been assigned to Los Montesinos’ auxiliary health centre, which has now reverted to the public sector. As well as a reduced doctor-patient ratio, the health centre will, for the first time, be open both in the morning and afternoon.
