Re: Coronavirus

Nice one Olive. :mrgreen: Do they still sell delicious sea food there? My Yorkshire Nan used to take us there. Would like to revisit but a bit far. She used to come back with lovely dressed crab too.

Re: Easyjet

I wonder if the Airlines will receive financial help. Thought Virgin had a bit of a cheek asking. Read two different figures of major shareholders but both average at 20% owned by Virgin, 34% Delta Airways, the rest KLM(Dutch) and Air France. Yet Branson is always pushing it as British. Managed to g...

Re: Coronavirus

Torrox, in the "Campo" As I sit on my lofty perch and look around I see about eight houses, there are more further up the track. They have to pass me if going to civilisation. The cars I see daily five are Spanish non-campo residents and the three English residents )I don't see them every day. But ...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes offers of help around here have been amazing. Someone on a local forum posted yesterday that Waitrose was donating all the fresh fruit and veg and he was collecting it early evening and would deliver i to those isolated.

Re: Coronavirus

....would rather give it to an African. Just made me think....I wonder what all the look-see men are doing? Don't suppose there'll be any govt. help for them, unless they're registered as refugees/assylum seekers. Furthermore, I haven't seen any news items about migrants crossing the Med recently. ...

Re: Coronavirus

Spanish friend has just sent me some amazing footage of the military in the centre of Competa in armoured vehicles making their presence felt. Surreal to see. They have been doing a recce in Marbella too. I wonder if they are anticipating social unrest like what is starting in Italy as people get p...

Re: Coronavirus

Every industry wants a bailout now. Charities the latest. Feel sorry for the small genuine ones I sent the money I'm saving by not going out to two of the local animal charities. They must be struggling without their usual fundraising activities and with their shops being shut. There have been arti...

Re: Coronavirus

:Funny there are more support groups than needed in this area. All back to normal except no delivery slots but plenty of volunteers if housebound. I find my money is mounting up as although a bit more expenditure on food no spending on entertainment, restaurant meals etc. Have to call all my obscure...

Re: Coronavirus

Agree Miro. I think this year will be a write off even if the virus dies down. We had already gone off cruises, not what they used to be, but if I hadn't they way infection spreads and how easily ships are stranded would put me off. Every industry wants a bailout now. Charities the latest. Feel sorr...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes it is hard to imagine there are people stuck in grotty apartments with a few kids, thousands lost their jobs...or lives. Wouldn't mind a wander down marbella paseo right now.

Re: Coronavirus

Didn’t know that the FCO has a large centralised call centre in Malaga :? Maybe to take advantage of cheap labour. They would have to be good English speakers I suppose.

Re: Coronavirus

Appears back to normal here. Had an email today from Tesco, says they have employed an extra 35,000 packers and drivers. Wonder how they managed that. Maybe all those baristas and burger flippers?

Re: Easyjet

I had an email from BA asking if I want a voucher as we were due to fly to Nice at Easter. Haven’t done anything yet but is an easy 2 min online process, just asks for name, flight no and date of travel.

Have read that Ryanair have increased prices for those wanting to re book.

Re: Coronavirus

These tragic reports happen a lot when there is no lock down. Unfortunately there has been quite a few similar recently before anyone had heard of the word Coronavirus. Too early to link it, unless you are a tabloid journalist.
