Rep­re­sent­ing res­i­dents

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Social Scene -

By Ray­mond Hill THE ASOCIACIÓN Veci­nal MUNA (Ma­rina Ur­ban­i­sa­tions Neigh­bour­hood As­so­ci­a­tion) rep­re­sents the res­i­dents of La Ma­rina, Es­cuera, Las Pes­quera and El Oa­sis within the San Ful­gen­cio area.

We are a legally reg­is­tered neigh­bour­hood as­so­ci­a­tion that was es­tab­lished in Jan­uary 2016 and is run vol­un­tar­ily by a multi-na­tional group of elected com­mit­tee mem­bers, who were demo­crat­i­cally voted in by mem­bers at the AGM. They donate their time free of charge to me­di­ate be­tween mem­bers and the coun­cil.

The as­so­ci­a­tion is open to all home­own­ers and res­i­dents of the ur­ban­i­sa­tions. We have flu­ent English, Span­ish, French, Dutch and Swedish speak­ing com­mit­tee mem­bers work­ing to make the area a more pleas­ant en­vi­ron­ment to live in.

Many res­i­dents have set­tled here form­ing a very di­verse com­mu­nity with many com­mon in­ter­est groups and clubs. We have seen run-down vil­las trans­formed into unique stylish prop­er­ties and many in­terto na­tion­ally owned busi­nesses formed and de­vel­oped.

Mem­ber­ship is €5 per per­son paid every year. We cam­paign on be­half of res­i­dents of the ur­ban­i­sa­tions in San Ful­gen­cio in or­der to im­prove the ur­ban­i­sa­tions for your ben­e­fit and to en­cour­age the dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties to get to­gether and en­joy the ben­e­fits avail­able to all of us liv­ing in Spain.

Can we re­mind peo­ple how im­por­tant it is to en­rol on the mu­nic­i­pal reg­is­ter (padrón) and also that you need to en­rol on the elec­toral cen­sus be­fore the end of De­cem­ber to be able vote in the lo­cal elec­tions next May.

De­tails can be found in The Of­fice/Swe Info on Calle Madrid, 107, on Tues­day and Thurs­day morn­ings be­tween 10.00 and 13.00, where MUNA com­mit­tee mem­bers have a desk, you can find out more about us and join us.

We have an AGM in Jan­uary when mem­bers can come and see what we have achieved in the last year. With this in mind can we re­mind ex­ist­ing mem­bers to re-join be­fore the AGM or they will not be able to vote in the elec­tions.
