LHR Polideportivo 02There has been a bit of flak over the sports facilities on La Herradura beach, which, according to the PSOE, remains in a state of neglect.

It was in November, said the PSOE, that workmen began taking down the perimeter fence, which prompted a reaction from locals via social media ending in a signature collection. The First Councillor for the village, Juan José Ruiz Joya, made a statement on facebook on the 18h of that month calling for calm, promising to renovate the facilities.

Since then, not a sausage has happened, complain the PSOE opposition party.

In response to this criticism, the First Councillor admits that it was true that they had promised to sort it out but stated that the fact is that the installations are not legal and haven’t been for the last 40 years as they are on the beach.

They have been trying, he said, to get the Junta de Andalucia to take it over and to provide sports facilities that enjoy all the safety measures necessary so that people can practice sport there.

For this reason, he pointed out that as the local PSOE spokesman belongs to the same party that governs the Junta, he should use his influence to get them to approve such a measure as soon as possible.

The local PSOE Spokesman was not impressed and accused the First Councillor of having shied from the truth and called upon him to be honest with the villagers because, he claims, the Town Hall has never made such a request before the Junta.

So, back to the First Councillor who fires up his facebook account and posted a document dated the 31st of January addressed to the Junta bearing the signature of the Municipal Secretary which backs up his original claims.

Moments later the PSOE fire up their facebook account and state that, yes of course, they have seen that document but that in paragraph three of the said document it says very clearly, that it should go before the Dirección General de Sostenibilidad de La Costa y del Mar, which belongs to the Central Government, which in turn is governed by the First Councillor’s own party.

Editorial comment: the sports facilities that should not be on the beach still stand looking pretty forlorn whilst two political parties trade off point scoring. Pull it down or fix it up, but stop squabbling.
