Tipsy Terrace Telegraph




Recent sightings of a dark object with florescent green hair and matching accessories have been confirmed to belong to that of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Suspicions, which were firstly reported in the Tipsy Terrace Telegraph on Thursday 22ns October, were put down to nothing more than rumors from a leaky cauldron. However, at approximately 2.30am Monday morning, residents surrounding Tipsy Terrace were all out on their terraces.

“We heard this almighty screech which we put down to a dreadful cat fight” said Barbara Meadows, Hibisco III.
“Roy did his best to calm me down but my nerves are still shattered, seeing the witch crash on court one lamppost this morning was a huge relief”.

Wanda, the oh-so-ugly but oh-so-friendly witch is relieved; she is now officially the only witch in the whole of Tenerife and will not be forced to leave Tipsy Terrace by the very jealous wicked witch. A huge relief to all.

Batten down the hatches and switch on the aircon as the Canary Islands are in for a sweltering week-end with temperatures well into the 30s, according to the Met Office.

This morning at 11am the temperature at Reina Sofia Airport was reading 34° and the blanket of dusty air is gradually creeping towards Los Gigantes.

Yesterday saw the warmest day of the year so far in many parts as a mass of warm desert air (calima) hung over the Islands.

Forecasters predict more of the same until at least Sunday, particularly in southern areas.

Several islands have placed forest fire brigades on stand-by in case the dry air and high temperatures trigger blazes.

People with asthma and other respiratory ailments have been advised to stay out of the sun and keep windows closed to prevent dust from worsening their condition.

€21 million will be invested by the Canarian Department of Employment and Industry to create jobs for the unemployed in social and community projects.

Over 300 local council projects will benefit from the investment. The scheme aims to get as many people as possible off the dole and create permanent job opportunities.
