GREENS PROPOSAL FOR REVIVAL OF ‘LA PLASA’

The 2 top floor of ther building currently lie empty

Although Torrevieja’s indoor market has been firmly established at ‘La Plasa’ since it was first opened in the town in 1995 stallholders only occupy the bottom floor of a spacious 3 storey building.

The upper two floors of the municipal building have now been abandoned for 15 years.

Although a number of the pitches currently lay empty moves are in hand, albeit via a government managed tender system, to fill them with new traders in the coming months.

But the local Green Party want to see rather more. They say that the upper two floors should also be filled rather than lying empty as they currently are. Although quite what they should be filled with is open to discussion.

They have asked the Torrevieja Councillor for trade, Agustina Esteve, to raise the matter at the next full meeting of the council with a suggestion that a study be launched as to how the floor space might be used to accommodate commercial activities.

The Green Party say that this is a “priority” matter and “vital” to the successful future of the business sector in the center of Torrevieja and that every effort should be made to see its reopening in the near future.

A spokesman said “We believe this is a matter of prime importance, both for the revitalization of trade, and for the economic, social and environmental success in the city centre.

The longer these two floors are allowed to remain empty the more impoverished the building will become and the more difficult it will be to establish ‘business recovery” which would quickly become a dynamic element of the town of Torrevieja.

DANI MARTIN ENTERTAINS 4000 STRONG AUDIENCE IN PILAR

Dani Martin onstage

The Dani Martin concert held last weekend in Pilar de la Horadada attracted record crowds of over 4000 people.

The film and television star, and former frontman of pop group El Canto del Loco, gave an absolutely rousing performance that had the audience on its feet from the very first minute.

And not all were from the local area as many hardcore fans are understood to have driven from his home city of Madrid camping themselves in the enclosure for up to 24 hours before the concert started so they could get the very best positions.

They joined thousands of locals and tourists who together enjoyed a night of music that also included a surprise performance by the actor, Fernando Tejero, who shared the stage for a few minutes with Dani Martin, as the pair performed a Sabina song.

Pilar’s councillor for festivities said “The show was a major success which allowed thousands of people from the town to celebrate the festivities with many hundreds of others that drove in from elsewhere.
Asunción Sánchez Martínez said that she was especially pleased, he said, because “the concert was conducted without incident thanks to measures that ensured the safety of all participants.”

Following Dani Martin’s performance the evening continued with entertainment from the group “Canalla City” which saw revelers dancing until the wee hours.
