The Ayuntamiento in Bigastro are concerned that fewer people from Villas Andrea are managing to get into town and take part in the activities there.
The town hall appreciates that it might be too far for some to walk and at the same time too short a distance to use the car for.
In order to help us, the Council for Social Welfare have agreed to put on a mini bus service from Villas Andrea to the centre of the town running every hour between 10am and 2pm and 4pm and 10pm weekdays and between 4pm and 10pm at weekends.
The service, which will be free, is set to pick up and drop off at the entrance to the estate and then again at the top of Calle Cañada de Andrea; stopping outside the Masymas supermarket in town.
However, I understand that you will be able to stop the bus anywhere along its route by indicating to the driver. In England you would put your arm out, in Spain I understand that you do the same but with your leg.
We don’t have a starting date for this service as yet but I imagine it will be within the next couple of weeks. For more information you can call in at the Centro social Integrado. C/ Acequia; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am and 2opm or email them at
firstname.lastname@example.org telling them where and when you read about this.
