Meeting the authorities


EAGLES CLUB members met Ana Scherman, Foreign Residents Councillor for Benalmadena, last week as part of a series of meetings the councillor is holding with expatriate groups.

At the meeting, Scherman provided the Eagles with information on the resources, services and activities the council has to offer and answered questions from the group.

The councillor later stressed her department’s intention to help foreign residents become a part of local life, saying: “There are 123 different nationalities and expats make up 34 per cent of Benalmadena’s population.”

Eagles Club is led by Colin Shepard. The group has 110 members and has been on the Costa del Sol for 28 years.


  1. So happy to read that you’ve manages to form a group of foreigners, expats. We here in Alfaz del Pi/Albir on the Costa Blanca are over 50% of the population and the Town Hall don’t want to listen to us. We bring in the money and the Spanish benefit from it.
    We would like to improve “el Medio Ambiente” since they don’t care about recycling enough, they still burn, nearly every day in the open causing pollution with toxic gases etc….
    How did you manage to be accepted and form a group?
    A pity is that here the PSOE has absolute majority so they only want to please the Spanish residents since they vote. Too few foreigners vote so there is no balance!
    Thank you for your advice.
