Community Spirit !!!!

Coles’s of Andalucia the local estate agent based in Los Gallardos has recently agreed a sponsorship deal with Los Gallardos townhall. The company are now kit suppliers and shirt sponsors for the three children’s teams 5-7 years, 8-10 years and 10-12 years old in the Almeria league.

Simon Cole the company owner approached the townhall with the offer as the existing kits were old and looking a little tired. ‘both of my boys play for the village in their respective age groups. I watch them play home and away on Saturdays and when you see the other teams they play in their new kits like Mojacar, Adra, El Ejido etc I felt our village needed the same. I used to run a 5 a side team in the UK and I arranged kits then so I had a good contact to use back in Derby.

The children and the townhall are very happy with the news kits and will be playing with pride away this Saturday against Roquetas del Mar. It is a little advertising for the company but it was more about giving something back to this village and community that has been so kind to us as a family here in Los Gallardos.

A MOJACAR councillor has made a formal proposal to the council to rename a local square after the most famous cartoon animator in the world, it has emerged.

According to local folklore Walt Disney, the creator of Donald Duck, Pluto and Mickey Mouse, was born in the hilltop village, although the claims have never been officially proven. Other names, including ‘Fronton’ or ‘del Ayuntamiento’ are also in contention for the new name of ‘Walt Disney Square’ as old stories abound over the American legend being of Spanish origin – the offspring of an illicit affair between a local doctor and an unmarried woman.

Councillor for tourism Angel Medina, speaking to this reporter, explained that the rumours circulating over Mojacar being Walt’s birthplace have never gone away. He said: “Rumour has it that Walt Disney was whisked away to the States due to the scandal that broke, where he was adopted by an American family. This still needs to be proven categorically, but it has also not been disproved


Spectrum 92.6FM has helped create a song especially for Mojacar to be used as a promotional tool for tourism in the area. Written by friend of Spectum FM Stevie Cash who also penned 'My Dear Spain' which was prompted on Spectrum earlier this summer and sung by Britain's Got Talent contestant Sheena McHugh. The song 'Mojacar' is sung to the Alicia Keys version of 'Empire State of Mind' '. A superb video of the area to go along with the song has been produced by Steve Homer of The Image Suite and really expresses the beauty of Mojacar.

Spectrum FM will be holding one of their legendary party days before Christmas at the recently refurbished New Kimrick Restaurant and Sheena will be flying out to play the song live. Spectrum hope to have all press and the Mayoress of Mojacar present at this world premiere of the live first performance of this great song that they hope this will really put Mojacar on the map. You can also listen to the song on The Almeria Happy Hour every weekday from 10.

If you would like to download the song then please visit the Spectrum FM website.
