Almuñécar Bars Fined

ALM Policia Local Car OnLWith Monday came the opening of several bars and restaurants along the Costa Tropical, as well as inland Granada, of course – fines soon followed.

In Almuñécar alone around 30 establishments opened their terraces for business – some with just a little too much enthusiasm it seems because two were fined for lacking the necessary paperwork.

One was a restaurant that didn’t actually have a terrace licence, which was naughty. The other just went ahead and extended its terrace space without obtaining permission from the Town Hall to do so – naughty as well.

Yes, the Policía Local in Almuñécar were busy all Monday, checking that all the bars and restaurants that had opened their terraces for business had the paperwork and did not have an excess of humanity occupying them.

They were pleased to announce, however, that the general public had largely behaved well and hadn’t swamped the said terraces or caused problems.

Those establishments – there are two others with fines in the pipelines – that did get fined are looking at between 300 and 3,000 euros. I could just happen to mention that these amounts miraculously work out at exactly 50,000 and 500,000 pesetas but of course, you either already knew that or didn’t wish to.

Over in a more obedient Salobreña nobody was fined – the police did put a group of teenagers up against a wall and shot them for going out when they shouldn’t but they took it very well – just kidding!

    Eve: The only area now that appears to be still restricted is the clothing and footwear aisle because you are not allowed to try items on – you can buy them, apparently, but not try them on. The other areas that were cordoned off during Phase Zero are now accessible, it seems. I gleaned this from somebody who was there yesterday.

    Sandra: Yes, masks will be obligatory as of tomorrow. Eve Young says that she had phoned alcampo yesterday to see if she could buy a TV and they replied that she could so you should be in luck concerning your oven 😉

    Thank you Martin. Is it a fact that from tomorrow masks have to be worn when walking out in the street.

    I phoned yesterday to ask if I could go to buy a tv and they said yes so we went and got one. Surely an oven is an essential item.

    Sandra: Yes, Al Campo is open but whether you can buy a fridge there is another matter as several sections are cordoned off.

    This is because only shops with less that 400 sq/m can open, so if they cordon off areas, then they can reduce their floor space.

    This was also done because only shops selling prime necessities (food, etc) were allowed toopen since the beginning of the Lock Down therefore it would have been unfair competition if Al Campo and other big supermarkets had been able to sell products that were not of prime necessity.
