Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

The 2015 Poppy Appeal in Benidorm was officially launched today – to much pomp and ceremony as it so justifiably deserves. The Torrevieja Pipes and Drums led the procession along the Levante promenade, attracting attention and applause from those that lined the route. Even the young lads drinking in the bars stood and clapped as the immaculately turned out Standard Bearers, British Legion members and ex-servicemen marched past… it certainly made everyone feel very proud of being a Brit.

Valencian Bank Holiday celebrated in Benidorm

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Inactive

The month begins with not one but two Bank Holidays here. Today, October 9th was a regional holiday – “Dia de la Comunidad Valenciana” or the Day of the Valencian Community. It marks the anniversary of the capture of the city of Valencia by King James I from the Moors in 1238, which at the time was an independent kingdom– and did not become part of Spain until 1707. It was not officially recognized and celebrated until 1976, when the Valencian Regional Government decreed it a Bank Holiday – the year after Franco died.

Taylor Marcs - Benidorm´s hottest new talent

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Taylor Marcs is a talent to take note of on the Benidorm entertainment circuit. The fact that he has only been here since January but already working 7 nights a week, with up to 3 shows per night speaks for itself! I met the gentle giant, all 6 ft 5” of him before his show at the Riviera Music Lounge and he is a gem - one of the funniest, sincerest and genuine of people you are likely to meet. He came with his constant companion Gale – as in Gales Honey, which he always has to hand to soothe his vocals!

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

The summer season officially ended at midnight – at least for drivers to Benidorm! As from today, 1st October an additional 1126 FREE parking spaces will be available. At the beginning of summer the Council extended the blue Pay & Display parking zones to many additional streets in the Rincon area. This was to deter holidaymakers – particularly domestic ones who´d drive over from Madrid, park up and leave their cars in the same spot for the duration of their stay, sometimes lasting two or three weeks.

The new Mayor is certainly going all out to bring about improvements to the resort. Workmen and diggers have moved in along the Levante promenade and the 20 ramps along the entire length are being replaced with solid metal and concrete structures.

When it comes to charity fundraising, no one does it better than the Brits – and expats even more so. Animal charities always get a good turnout, especially with the Brits being a nation of animal lovers but topping that is support of our troops.

News Snippets

  • Obesity War +

    The number of NHS obesity operations has increased by 500% in the last decade. 6,438 gastric bypass operations were performed on the NHS in 2015/16 compared to 1,038 in 2005/6 - costing up to £15,000. The highest number of operations took place in Telford and Wrekin in the West Midlands and lowest in West Norfolk.
  • Phone boxes +

    BT is to scrap 8,700 of its 46,800 phone boxes, which equates to one in five payphones over the next 3 years. They say that usage is down by 90 per cent over the past decade - but they are often a lifeline in remote rural areas where mobile phone signals are poor.
  • Snap UK election +

    UK Prime Minister Theresa May has called an unexpected snap general election for Thursday June 8... a mere 7 weeks away. There will be a vote in the House of Commons tomorrow to approve the election plan - the prime minister needs two thirds of MPs to vote in favour to hold a vote before the next scheduled election date of 2020.
  • Barista shortage +

    Statistic show that an average of 24 coffee shops open every week across the UK - but a shortage of trained baristas could scupper future expansion plans. There are 130,000 working in the UK, but projected figures estimate that a further 40,000 are required over the next six years. Coffee shops are expected to add £8.9 billion into the UK economy this year - a 12% increase on last year.
  • Brexit blues +

    The Home Office has announced that a £490 million contract has gone out to tender to design & produce a new British passport for when the current one runs out in 2019. Coincidentally, it happens to be in 2019 - when the UK leaves the EU, potentially paving the way for a return of the much wanted traditional blue passport.
  • Driving to France? +

    Paris, Lyon and Grenoble require cars to display an emissions sticker on their windscreen or face a £117 fine. They cost €4.18 from the official French Government website - but motoring groups warn that they could take up to 6 weeks to arrive, too late for those planning to drive over for the Easter break.
