At 11.43pm on Saturday 20th October, the local Diario Información newspaper published the best news we´ve heard in a long time.  The application to do test-drilling for a gypsum mine in San Miguel de Salinas and Orihuela has been rejected on environmental grounds! This follows an outcry by the people of San Miguel, a march through the town last Sunday which we fully supported and attended, and formal objections being raised both by the San Miguel de Salinas town hall administration and that of Orihuela.  This news comes as a very welcome relief to everyone who lives and works in the area, and comes hot on the heels of the news that the proposed rubbish treatment plant will NOT be located in San Miguel either.  So, no rubbish dump and no mine for us to worry about!  We can go back to enjoying our wonderful town and the beautiful countryside that surrounds us.  Well done to everyone who helped to achieve this!

Yesterday (19th October 2018) had to be one of the best days ever in terms of good news for San Miguel!!  For 3 reasons:

1) The Sierra Escalona pine forest was finally granted protected countryside status (paisaje protegido) which is only one step away from being declared a full National Park.  This will hopefully mean that the mining company that has applied to do test-drilling with a view to opening a gypsum (plaster of paris) mine in the area will have to look elsewhere for potential sites, and the wonderful flora and fauna of our beautiful Sierra Escalona will remain a pristine oasis of natural beauty!!

2) We found out that the proposed rubbish/recyclling plant for the Vega Baja region that might have been placed in San Miguel, will definitely not be, and will instead be located in Dolores.  We know that rubbish plants/dumps have to be located somewhere, but nobody wants to be too close to them, if only to avoid the potential heavy traffic.

 

3.  And finally, it was announced that San Miguel de Salinas will receive funding for a new infants school!

So, in all, a fantastic day!!

 

Please note that we have added a link in our "Useful" menu to the UK government advice regarding residency status in Spain.

We have decided to change our opening hours slightly and will now be opening at the earlier hour of 9am and closing at 6pm, Monday - Friday as follows:

We reached another landmark last week which was very important to us.  We became a limited company, Villas Fox S.L. !  It´s something we´ve been thinking about doing for a long time in order to present a more professional image, but we had doubts about the set-up costs, ongoing admin costs etc.  However, after a long chat with our accountant, and weighing up the pros and cons, we decided that it was the right thing for us to do, and so initiated the process (which involved submitting a list of 5 possible names, in order of preference, and hoping that our first choice was not already taken or conflicted with an existing company).  A couple of weeks later, we got the good news that Villas Fox S.L. had been temporarily reserved for us, and so we had to lodge the initial capital with the bank, and go to the notary to sign the company title deeds.  But that wasn´t the end of it.  We then had to wait for the company deeds to be accepted by, and registered with the Alicante registro mercantil (merchants register).  Finally, last week we received notification that this had been formalised, and that is the piece of paper that Sorelle is holding in the photo! Onwards and upwards (hopefully!)
