THE mayors of Vera and Antas in Almeria province are seeking funds for a €5 million project to prevent flooding in both towns.

Their first interview was with Aranzazu Martin Moya, the Junta’s Sustainable Development delegate to whom Vera mayor Jose Carmelo Jorge Blanca and his Antas counterpart, Pedro Ridao Zamora, detailed their plans to tame the River Aguas.

Channelling and draining 2.5-kilometre section of the river would solve a problem that is repeated each year in both municipalities during periods of torrential rain, they explained.


Martin Moya was “very receptive” towards the project, saying that she would study solutions and include allocations in the delegation’s budget, the mayors revealed afterwards.

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.
