PROVINCIAL council, the Diputacion, is organising a Festival of Christmas games for municipalities with fewer than 2,000 inhabitants.

Directed at the under-18s, the activities are designed to complement municipal programmes for the young over the holiday season with healthy outdoor options.

Jose Antonio Garcia, who heads the provincial council’s Sports department, explained that the programme, which continues until December 30, fulfils one of the Diputacion’s principal functions of assisting smaller municipalities over Christmas.


“An initiative like this also centres on two of the Diputacion’s two most important objectives of providing equal opportunities for all Almeria province residents and fighting depopulation,” Garcia said.

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.
