Eye on Spain Newsletter - 26 May 2009

Buenos dias

This is going to be a bit of a long intro but please try and read it all as there is some important stuff here.

Firstly, as we mentioned in the last newsletter we are planning our 5th birthday party.  We have set the date for July 11th.  More details to be released soon BUT if you have a business and would like to sponsor the event please reply to this email and we'll send you details of what's available.  Lots of publicity planned!

Secondly, in association with Costa Advice Bureau we are running an online campaign to save the chiringuito restaurants in Spain.  They are under threat of being removed.  Watch the video about it and please sign our online petition to register your support.  Thank you.

Thirdly, if you use Facebook or Twitter then please add me as a friend as we are going to be using these networking sites much more for info and fun!  Add me on Facebook here and follow me on Twitter here.  :-)

That's all for today.  There will be some announcements next week regarding the birthday celebrations which are shaping up to be a lot of fun for everyone.

Anyway, hope you enjoy today's articles.

Remember that you can also submit your own articles for publication in the newsletter and on the website.
