Thurs & Fri 5pm-8.30pm
Mazarrón Council has joined the campaign ‘Turtles in the Mediterranean’ which is aimed at protecting the loggerhead turtle on our shores. This was launched by the Oceanographic Foundation and the Red Cross to protect these marine reptiles; an initiative promoted and praised by the departments of Services of the Coast and Animal Welfare of the City of Mazarrón. If a sighting occurs, the most convenient and effective thing to do is to call 112 with which the Varamiento Network is activated.
Sea Turtles have an important role because they help fight jellyfish and the negative effects that their overpopulation can cause in the ecosystem.
First Steps Towards A Better Camposol
The mayor of Mazarrón, Gaspar Miras, studied the needs of the area with Silvana Buxton and Tomás Ureña.
• It was noted that repairs were required at the Social Centre: outer and inner front doors, window in hall, emergency door, dance bar, wall mirror. The air conditioning is being sorted and the hand-dryer in ladies’ toilet should be replaced soon.
• Camposol B commercial centre: blocks of damaged and rusty (never used) letter boxes by commercial centre to be removed, as well as those in Sector C by the golf course.
• Camposol A Medical Centre: repairs to front door glass; installation of blinds on big windows by the reception desk and by entrance door; possible provision of drinking water machine.
• Numerous pot-holes to be repaired and list to be made of roads requiring urgent repairs.
• Issues regarding the ‘adoption’ of Camposol, including the procedure and legalities were discussed.
Silvana Buxton is now writing a column each month in the Costa Cálida Chronicle with updates.
The Council Installs Drink Can Compactors
Through this simple gesture, people can recycle used cans. The 7 installed in Mazarrón are located at: Plaza Toneleros, The Rihuete Promenade, Playa Grande, two on the Costa Cálida Avenue, in front of the Phoenician Ship Interpretation Centre and one in Bolnuevo. The cans are easily compacted and 100% of the aluminum can be recycled without diminishing its quality.
