sweet-lucyOn Saturday 5th December the local Mayor switched on the illuminations in the Plaza in Los Gigantes.

Among those lights was an artificial Christmas Tree, which the Santiago Del Teide Lions Club annually commemorate for their good causes. In previous years they have raised money for the Sight First Appeal, which was sent to enable those with treatable blindness maladies be restored to a life with vision.

This year, the buckets went round for the ‘Sweet Lucy’ fund. The young lady in question is an 8 year old with a genetic disorder called Sensory Neuropathy Atoxia (S.N.A.) which prevents the brains’ messages to the limbs being properly sent. Thus everyday activities such as catching a ball or even walking, are denied her.

The evening raised 520.00 euros which will be placed in her ‘Fund’ which is husbanded by the Lions Club, and has so far reached over 4,600.00 euros. Of this 2,600.00 euros will be spent on a special electric wheelchair for her.

The account for her is at the Banco March, and should anyone care to donate, the number is IBAN ES 39 0061 0215 140119520111.

Tipsy Terrace Telegraph

Concerns are mounting following reports that a strange “Flash of Bright Green” has been spotted in the sky at various times of the day and night over the village of Los Gigantes and the surrounding areas.

Residents and holiday makers alike are toiled and troubled that the dark object with flourecent green hair and matching accessories could belong to that of a witch.

Neighbourhood watch in both Jazmin and Hibisco I and II first noticed the unusual object on Monday.

Experts suggest that the recent introduction of Halloween decorations at Tipsy Terrace Bar & Bistro have increased the curiosity of what could be the return of The Wicked Witch of the West.

Also, the arrival of Wanda the Witch; the oh-so-ugly but oh-so-very friendly new member of Team Tipsy, could have sparked deep rooted jealousy and drawn the bad witch closer to the village than ever known before.

The Policía Local have put this down to nothing more than rumours from a leaky couldron but Team Tipsy would be grateful if any further sightings could be reported to the bar as soon as possible.

James Lambert SingersThousands have heard them sing in international competitions and at private functions, and now they are coming to Tenerife.

The , based in Wrexham, North Wales, are to sing in Spain for the very first time.
The choir has about 30 members and a lively repertoire of popular music that includes well known songs from the 40’s right up to music from more modern shows and films.

For one night only they will be performing at El Marques in Puerto Santiago on Saturday 7th September starting at 7pm.

The evening in association with the Santiago del Teide Lions Club, will be supported by the local singer Ian Anderson with dancing until late.

A full, sit down buffet is included in the ticket price. Places are limited so early booking is recommended.

Tickets are Euros 20
Available from El Marques reception, MDI Alcala, Megatone in El Varadero, Paul Ruane in Los Gigantes.

re-opening-of-crazy-golfToday saw the re opening of Tipsy Terrace Sports and garden crazy golf. The all new synthetic grass surfaces gives it a great new feel.

Sally and Sarah have been working feverishly with paint brushes in hand to give the course a makeover. Not without its setbacks, when the supplier of the new grass discovered that the shipment had gone astray. However, many frantic phone calls and overnight delivery ensured that it was open on time by councillor for tourism Germán Jiménez and Councillor Stephen Gerald.

crazy-golfIt’s not just crazy golf that Tipsy Terrace Sports and Garden centre have to offer, their tennis courts, pool, bar and restaurant are open 7 days a week.
