One of our readers is having problems accessing their Spanish bank account online. Apparently the Banco Popular site now redirects to the Santander site. Following the merger of the two banks.

The person cannot access the Santander site using his credentials for the old Banco Popular site. He is wondering whether other are having the same problem. If yes, please can you get in touch. Particularly if you have managed to resolve this issue.

PS A secondary problem is that the Santander site is not available in English.

UPDATE: Here is a link to the English login page.

A reader, Julie S, has asked the following....

"Hi, we are coming out to our holiday home in Almerimar in a couple of weeks with my 80 year old mother. She had a fall some time ago and never really fully recovered. I was wondering if you might be able to let us know if there are any wheelchair hire/scooter hire places in or around the Almerimar area. We will have a car so can travel to the hire place. Thanks"

I have received this message from a reader David H.....

"Hi, I think you will remember that we had our bikes nicked recently!

This makes the Turbo Trainer and front wheel mount redundant - and they are brand new and never been out of their delivery box.

The total cost was £60 (say €70).

I don’t expect much for them, but if someone would donate say €30 to a local charity then I would be delighted to off load them."


If you are interested in buying these items please get in touch.

Received this on the Facebook page from Andy F. If anyone can help please comment on the Facebook page. Or if you prefer let me know and I will pass on your information to Andy.

I have received this message. Someone is asking about the following:

"Does any one in Almerimar have 2 second hand bikes they wish to sell for (2 )14 year old children? Or can you recommend a shop in the area?"

I have had a query from a reader asking whether I know someone in the area who repairs washing machines. Anyone know someone they can recommend?

My only suggestion was to search online for support from the manufacturer. That is what I did when our dishwasher had a problem.

My brother has started playing walking football back in the UK and is really enjoying it.

I am thinking about perhaps looking to try to set up a group playing walking football in Almerimar. Would anyone be interested in playing walking football in Almerimar?
