Rehab Unit for San Miguel Health Centre

Unit will also serve residents of Los Montesinos, Entrenaranjos and Torremendo The Health Centre in San Miguel de Salinas, which falls within the Torrevieja Health Department, inaugurated a new Rehabilitation Unit today (November 16th). The objective is to bring residents of the municipality, and nearby places like Los Montesinos, Entrenaranjos y Torremendo, the care they need a bit closer. It will have a physiotherapy service and a rehabilitation doctor’s surgery, supported by the latest technology with low frequency electrotherapy kits, ultrasound and magnetic therapy. The treatment areas are various but stand-outs include traumatology, pre and post surgery, neurology and back pain. The new centre is prepared to receive up to 25 patients per day, with an average of 3 or 4 per hour, depending of course on the amount of time required for each patient’s...

Want to rent your house out to tourists?

New programme in Orihuela includes aid to do them up There will be a conference for anyone interested in offering their home as accommodation for tourists in Orihuela on November 22. This event, organised by the Valencian Federation of Municipalities and Provinces “will promote the development of tourist accommodation all over the municipality, because the current offer is scarce and it is important to follow the legislation against unauthorised letting”, explained Councillor Sofia Álvarez. The initiative consists of enabling residents who have a home that is not being used to make it available for tourists in an organised fashion, by adhering to a programme that will have access to aid from the Local Tourism Department from next year to get these houses up to...

Fire burns 1,500m3 of protected land in the Sierra Escalona

San Miguel residents ask the Town Hall to control farmers’ bonfires The residents’ association ‘San Miguel Arcángel’ has reported there was a fire last Thursday morning in a protected area of the Sierra Escalona and Dehesa de Campoamor, which affected an area of pine trees and shrubs over approximately 1,500 square metres. It started, according to eyewitnesses, from a farm bonfire that got out of control due to the strong wind and the extreme dryness of the land. The association has asked the Town Hall to exert maximum control over permissions it grants for the burning of agricultural cuttings, and for precautions to be taken so that fires like this do not happen. “They are totally preventable and this could have turned into an ecological disaster of incalculable proportions,” they said. The association also urged the authorities to speed up talks to declare the Sierra Escalona a Natural Park, which would increase the conservation measures for this exceptional and unique jewel of the south eastern Iberian...

Orihuela Medieval Market to return in February

Organisers will have to pay Town Hall at least €6,000 to win contract The 2017 Orihuela Medieval Market will be held on February 3rd, 4th and 5th. The council approved the conditions for the contract on Tuesday. Councillor Francisco Sáez explained that the organisers will have to pay at least €6,000; that is to say, the company that the contract is awarded to must pay the Town Hall a minimum of €6,000, although this amount could increase if they offer a higher amount. In this way, the Medieval Market will return to its original dates, after the controversy last year when it was moved to April. At that time there were no bids for the contract and the date had to be put back again, so Councillor Mariola Rocamora announced it would return to February because this was also the wish of the local Moors and Christians Committee. “We have changed the date so there is no kind of problem with such an important celebration for Orihuela,” said Sáez. He also indicated that the conditions of the contract “comply perfectly with what is required for a medieval market such as...
