WORK has finally begun on the retaining wall at the L’Ampolla each in Moraira on Alicante’s Costa Blanca.

The wall was badly damaged during severe storms last year but work was delayed after the company contracted to carry out the work increased the original tender.

The town hall preferred to call a halt but as the summer season approached, camouflaged the wall with a tarpaulin printed with a drystone design.


The tarpaulin was the best way of ensuring that the image of one of Moraira’s principal beaches was affected as little as possible during the high season, Teulada-Moraira mayor Raul Llobell explained at the time.

The town hall has now allocated €130,229 for the repairs, which will take two months to complete.

He was glad to have found a solution to such an important issue on the town hall’s political agenda, Llobell declared.

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.
