ACCORDING to the old Spanish saying, every baby arrives with a loaf of bread under its arm.

Calpe babies can go one better, however, as the town hall has set aside €100,000 for its Bono Baby 2021 voucher scheme, paying up to €500 for each child aged up to three.

This is open to families where one parent has been registered on the municipal Padron for five years as well those on ERTE furlough, are unemployed or where the family income is lower than the Iprem Public Multiple Effects Income Indicator (set this year at €564.90) multiplied by four.


Families now have until December 13 to apply to Calpe town hall, producing receipts for locally-acquired necessities, including childcare, pharmacy and para-pharmacy purchases and other basics.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
