Ibiza Christmas Fayre in Santa Eulalia

November 25th, 2007

The annual Christmas Fayre, organised by the English-Speaking Church on Ibiza, takes place on Saturday December 8th between 11 am and 3 pm.

As in previous years it will take place on the Santa Eularia promenade outside the Pier 1 restaurant, which is below the Cruz del Sur apartment block in front of the beach.

With stalls offering toys, books, CDs, videos, jewellery and much more, this is your opportunity to kick-start that Christmas ‘goodwill to all men’ spirit by finishing off the Christmas shopping…
In addition to the tombola there will also be a Grand Raffle for those of a fortunate disposition.

Contributions of home produce and raffle prizes are still being sought by the organisers, who can be contacted through the Church Chaplaincy on 971 34 33 83.

Dinner For One

November 23rd, 2007

There’ll be an article in Decembers Ibiza NOW magazine about this. We were intrigued when it was put forward to appear in the magazine so we checked it out.

Its unlikely you’ll ever heard of it for a number of reasons. Briefly put, its never appeared on British Television but half of Germany have been watching it every New Years Eve since 1972…. in its original english language version…

We like Slate magazines take on it here: “A New Years tradition only the Germans could Dream Up”

CCTV comes to Ibiza

November 21st, 2007

cctv.jpgThe diario de ibiza reported this morning that Ibiza Town will install 5 cameras around Sa Penya district.

Ricardo Albin announced that in April of next year the five cameras should be already operational and, depending on the results, will consider extending “such measures” to other parts of the municipality.

However there is considerable debate as to whether CCTV actually works – This Is London article. Unlike the UK however, the installation of CCTV is tightly controlled which is why its taken Ibiza Town council since 2006 to get permission to install the cameras so thankfully don’t expect UK style coverage any time soon.

Sadly they got beaten 2-1 but we had roast lamb on slow cook for when we got back so it was good footy and sunday lunch day…

Eivissa "attack" Ontinyent goal

Eivissa spend the first 10 minutes attacking and get rewarded by an equaliser – 4 mins later Ontiyent go ahead after a dodgy free kick outside the Eivissa area. A nice flicked on header in the top right hand of the net and Ontiyent end up 2-1 winners.
