We are currently spreading Picon to Gardens on the Complex. We have spread several lorry loads so far but have paused with the Picon temporarily as the Picon is too small and dust like. We are also repainting areas that need upgrading while the Complex is quiet.
We are currently re-siliconing the area between pool liners and coping stones to both pools.
Remedial works have been carried out to assist in preventing water damage after heavy rain during the winter.
Tree pruning and removing infected trees now complete.
Pool heating will be turned off for the summer in the next week subject to current hot weather continuing.
After very heavy Rain this winter several property’s had water coming through the walls. We have spent several weeks changing pipe work in an effort to prevent further problems. This work is continuing.
We are very sad to say that Hardie Brown No.4, passed away on 21.3.2021. Hardie was one of the original owners and was well known for his love of Cigars. We send condolences to Hardies Family.
As of today we are still in Tier 4 in Lanzarote. We would appreciate owners sending in Proxys for the AGM on 20.3.2021 as we are currently unaware when tier changes will take place.
On further investigation of diseased Trees on the Complex, more Trees will have to be removed in January.
Apologies for any lack of information ref the Basura Building.
As you know the Building with the walls and floor is already in place and will never be used again for Basura. An opportunity now to Roof in the area and front entrance to form a secure unit for Zone D Owners only. Storing Cycles is a possibility. Also as a completely separate project at a later date to install Solar Heating to offset our spiralling electrical costs in Pool Heating which currently are 800 to 1000€ per month per pool during the six months a year the pools are heated. The latter being a impossible without the Roof construction which is approx. 45 sq. Meters.
Myself and the Board would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
We have been having several requests for fumigation of properties so thought we should put something on the Blog to clarify the procedure.
Requirements to apply for housing Fumigation
The Complex will be treated on a 3 monthly time frame each year under terms of contract.
Individual homes will be charged €75 each. If up to 5 properties require this service it will be €75 for 5.
Only when necessary, NOT PREVENTIVE.
Only one application per year for the same home.
The house must be UNOCCUPIED a minimum of 12 hours after fumigation and 48 hours without cleaning.
Leave the key’s or instructions to access at the time of request.
The Community will take charge once a minimum number of homes has been grouped, on the dates/times programmed by the community.
If you want another date, the service can be requested at any time with a charge to the owner of €75.
I hope all of you are as safe and well as you can be during these difficult times.
I write to let you know that all is in good order. John Rand is still monitoring the Pools and properties.
For all of you that have been asking, good news, Los Amigos will be opening next Tuesday 6th October and I believe the hours will be 10.00am until 7.00pm Monday to Saturday.
Currently it is compulsory to wear a mask at all times and comply with the health regulations.
Owners not on Direct Debit –
Owing to the current situation owners from now on will only pay for Water Bills twice a year with their Fees. The Meters will continue being read every three months as usual so that any problems can be detected.
The Dockets for water will not now be sent out for the intermediate readings, only December and June. We intend for this payment to be a permanent arrangement.
