Community Heroes

IN a remarkable display of community spirit, Lux Mundi’s Food Drive Torre Del Mar, achieved a milestone this month. Volunteers rallied together to provide essential aid to families in need within the Torre Del Mar vicinity. The end of May saw an extraordinary effort as volunteers diligently packed bags, ultimately benefiting 116 individuals, comprising 71 adults and 45 children.

The success of this endeavour is credited to the collective efforts of volunteers who tirelessly packed, shopped, delivered, and donated items. Their dedication and selflessness highlight the ethos of community support. Without their invaluable contributions, this initiative would not have been possible. The organisers extend their heartfelt gratitude to all involved, recognising their pivotal role in effecting positive change within the local community.

Beach Security

THE recent restoration efforts along the cliffs of El Cantal IN Rincon de la Victoria reflect the area’s commitment to combating vandalism. After the destruction of about 200 metres of wooden fencing recently, the Beach Department of Rincón de la Victoria swiftly took action. Through the installation of 50 new wooden posts, totalling a cost of €3,316.61, the area’s safety and aesthetics were restored.

Sergio Díaz, the councillor of Beaches and Infrastructure, emphasised the importance of securing such heavily trafficked tourist spots. Mayor Francisco Salado condemned the vandalistic acts, urging everyone to uphold civic responsibility. The incident not only tarnishes the city’s image but also burdens local finances. As Rincón de la Victoria appeals for collective vigilance, it highlights the communal duty to safeguard public spaces.
