Finestrat is organising games for children every Friday morning on La Cala beach. The activities, for the three-to-12 age group, continue each Friday until September 2 in the children’s area adjoining the lifeguards’ post between 10am and 2pm.
Specialist monitors will organise games, sports, swimming, music and workshops which will vary each week, so that the children can enjoy different activities over the coming weeks.
“We want children to have somewhere to have fun and learn while they are at the beach,” said Finestrat’s deputy mayor Victor Dario Llinares. “Their area is marked out and they will wear identity bracelets as a safety measure,” he added.
Summer has also arrived for La Cala street cleaners as the town hall has organised a special brigade in addition to the usual team. This operates throughout Finestrat, focusing on the beach area which has the greatest number of visitors.
“It is essential to redouble efforts to keep the town clean at this time of the year,” said Tomas Selles, councillor responsible for street cleaning.
The brigade will also be out in the evenings until September, preparing the seafront for the following day. “We want the town in tip-top condition,” Selles added.
