  Eco museum de La Alcogida
Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - 07-08-2020, 09:25 PM - Forum: Things to do on the island - No Replies

From RadioSintonia:

The council of Fuerteventura has renewed the Ecomuseo La Alcogida, located in Tefía, with a series of rehabilitation performances and new museum. In this way, the space reopens the public with a new value of its ethnographic elements, including for the first time guided tours.
Regarding the museum content, the permanent exhibitions of houses and workshops have been implemented, and the temporary exhibition on traditional architecture of Fuerteventura has been updated. In addition, the contract has been awarded for the restoration of a series of pieces of great heritage value that are part of the permanent exhibition of the Ecomuseo La Alcogida.
"Visitors can also enjoy a guided tour of the ethnographic aspects of majorera culture." Guided tours will take place every hour, during the center's opening hours, from 09.30 to 15.30 hours.
"These improvements have resulted in a lively and dynamic,more interactive museum," explains Cu ltura's counselor, Historical Heritage and Cultural Broadcast, Andrés Briansó.
The objective of the Network of Centers and Museums of Fuerteventura is to promote the development of a museum activity as a cultural offer at the service of society. In this sense, the dossier is processed to bid on the improvement works in Mirador Morro Velosa (Betancuria), Faro del Tostón (Cotillo) and Cueva del Llano (Villaverde).
For its part, in Casa Alta de Tindaya the contract for the installation of museum equipment will be withdrawn. The works also cover the Salt Museum, Unamuno Museum House and Ampuyenta Cultural Complex.
At the same time, conditioning work is being carried out in the Poblado Majorero La Atalayita, with a museum update, being planned to open at the end of the year. In Tuineje will be carried out the creation of the Battle interpretation center of Tamasite in the building known as Casa de La Simona.
Centre hours
The Ministry of Culture, Historical Heritage and Cultural Dissemination has wanted to invite both residents and tourists to visit the centers of the Network of Centers and Museums in their current opening hours. Casa Museo Unamuno is open from Monday to Friday from 09.00 to 14.00 hours.
The Patrimonial Cultural Complex of La Ampuyenta, Ecomuseo La Alcogida, Cueva del Llano, La Cilla Grain Museum and Tostón Lighthouse Traditional Fisheries Museum will be open, during the month of August, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 09.30 to 15.30 hours.
For its part, Salt Museum and Majorero Cheese Museum will be open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10.00 to 18.00 hours.

  How di we change doctors?
Posted by: TrickyFox - 06-08-2020, 12:21 PM - Forum: General Discussions - Replies (7)

Not sure if this is the correct place to post but......how do we change doctors here?
We used to have a male doctor who spoke very good English at Antigua, but he left (believe he is now in PDR). The replacement doctor is female (my wife generally can't get on with them - even when we were still in the UK) and after two visits says she does not want to go back to her.

  Las Playitas - news
Posted by: Sam - 30-07-2020, 03:10 PM - Forum: General Discussions - No Replies

Las Playitas will have a Skate-Park next to the cultural centre

Las Playitas already has a Skate-Park for the enjoyment of the neighbours in the outskirts of the cultural centre, church and soccer field.

It is an infrastructure that the neighbours had demanded and which has been taken care of by the Tuineje City Council with an investment of approximately 15,000 euros in the equipment of the park itself and 4,700 euros of the concrete base on which it has been installed.

"We continue to bet on sport, not only through improving the infrastructures that we already have, but creating new ones like these that are already available to citizens," said Esther Hernández, who underlines the commitment of the local government to the basic sport "and its practice as an element of healthy life".

Councillor for Sports, Christian Cabrera, recalled that "we have also made improvements to the Las Playitas soccer field and we are also going to work on improving the fields at the entrance to town, within the round of work for the adaptation of municipal sports facilities ”.

The park has four structures for practising different skills on the board.

  El Matorral - news
Posted by: Sam - 27-07-2020, 02:38 PM - Forum: General Discussions - No Replies

The City Council of Puerto del Rosario , through the Department of Works and Services , led by Juan José Herrera , will tender the project in the next few days to execute the realization of a multi-sports court in the El Matorral neighbourhood of the capital's municipality.

The work will be made up of a multi-sports court, as well as two Canarian ball fields with their respective warehouse to deposit sports equipment , as well as the realization of a unique platform on Estera Street that connects with the recreational area on the same plane to facilitate pedestrian traffic in the area .

In this sense, it is intended to create a recreational area , in addition to improving accessibility in the El Matorral area in collaboration with the Accessibility Department , which is led by Lilian Concepción , by carrying out a pedestrian crossing on El Bielgo street . Likewise, the pavement will be carried out in La Empleita street and El Baifo street , among other actions.

The amount allocated for this project amounts to the amount of approximately 300,000 euros .

Both the mayor of Puerto Rico, Juan Jiménez , and the councillor for Works and Services, José Juan Herrera , state that “ this type of action corresponds to the commitment that this government group has with the citizenry and, more specifically, with the residents and users of this neighbourhood, in the commitment to improving the neighbourhoods and towns of this capital. In this case, it is intended to provide El Matorral with a recreational area, in addition to conditioning the area with the elimination of architectural barriers, leading to improved accessibility and security, creating, for this, pavements in the urban core in compliance with the accessibility regulations, so that they are spaces for the use and enjoyment of all citizens in general ”.
