CUEVAS DEL ALMANZORA commemorated Constitution Day with a plenary meeting of the Children’s Council.

Cancelled last year owing to the pandemic, this year’s meeting was prepared with “excitement and commitment” by all participants, said Cuevas mayor Antonio Fernandez Lirio.

Welcoming the council members – all pupils at all the municipality’s primary schools and the Jaroso high school – Fernandez Lirio stressed the importance of understanding the “decision-making mechanisms” that were used at a town hall.


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.
