flashThe sun shone – well for the first half of the day at least and Calle Gerona in the Rincon de Loix turned green to celebrate the Patron Saint of Ireland. St Patrick’s day is big business here in Benidorm and many of the bars embraced the occasion, with bunting, flags, balloons and shamrocks decorating their premises.

The next big one for the Brits here is British Fancy Dress Day, falling the day after the end of the Benidorm fiestas, which this year is on Thursday 15 November.

    However, it's not a title Brits should be proud of. 20 per cent of 10-11 year old schoolchildren in England are classed as obese - compared to 18.5 per cent in the States.
