A FULL house en­joyed a glass of wine, a huge raf­fle and mu­sic from the Tor­re­vieja Pipes and Drum band for this last meet­ing of San Luis-La Si­esta Neigh­bour­hood Watch (NHW) in 2018.

Mayor José Manuel Dolón had to join the group late, hav­ing been called to an un­ex­pected meet­ing with the pres­i­dent of Va­len­cia re­gion, Ximo Puig. How­ever, he did man­age to give the meet­ing an up­date on the long­stand­ing is­sue of La Si­esta park. It seems there is still no open­ing in sight as the mayor re­vealed a court in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way and un­til the case is re­solved noth­ing could hap­pen.

There was an up­date on the planned new con­tracts for waste ser­vices and the bus ser­vice with mem­bers in­vited to at­tend a coun­cil meet­ing to see the con­tract­ing process.

Res­i­dents were told about how to reg­is­ter to vote in the lo­cal elec­tions in May next year and were ad­vised to en­sure that they have res­i­dency sta­tus and change their UK driv­ing li­cences for Span­ish ones be­fore Brexit.

The mayor, di­rec­tor of parks and lo­cal po­lice were due to meet this week with NHW chair Doug Allen and mem­bers in or­der to in­spect the area and re­solve is­sues raised by res­i­dents, and to iden­tify which el­e­ments of the area im­prove­ment plan can be com­pleted.

Those at­tend­ing the meet­ing were ad­vised that NHW is try­ing to build up an earth­quake team, which would help out in the event of a se­ri­ous tremor, and mem­bers were in­vited to sign up.

The meet­ing was also told of three in­ci­dents in San Luis lake­side in which res­i­dents’ homes were en­tered, and in one case a per­son was as­saulted. Res­i­dents were ad­vised to be vig­i­lant, vary their rou­tines and ring the 112 emer­gency num­ber if they have any con­cerns.

The Guardia Civil home team will be at­tend­ing the NHW meet­ing in Jan­uary to ad­vise peo­ple on home se­cu­rity.

Res­i­dents were also ad­vised that they can take large items of rub­bish (fur­ni­ture, etc.) they want to dis­pose of to the eco­park si­t­u­ated off the CV-905
