Hi, I am looking for information on getting married in Spain. Costa blanca /San Miguel area. The info I need would be for a Catholic Church wedding and reception. I have heard that it is very difficult to organise and that the couple need to be signed on the Padron etc... I am hoping to do as much as possible myself for my Niece as I live here but I know that paperwork has to be in Spanish so will need professional help with that ,I can also check out venue's but I would love to hear from people who have done it and hopefully get some tips on Do's and Dont's. Thanks
Hi Everyone, My wife and I are looking to move to La Romana with our two children a boy of 10 and Girl of 7. We currently live in USA , and have lived there for 4 years. I would be interested to hear from anyone with kids , of their experiences of the move , and to be honest if you are really happy. We are not really looking for an expat community living experience, more of a genuine spanish way of life. What can anyone tell me?

Hi everyone, There's a new forum at www.oldschoolgate.com, for parents to talk about ideas and news to do with kids and schools. There are boards dedicated to a couple of local schools already, as well as general areas where we can discuss after school clubs, lifts, etc... if you'd like a board for your school just drop the administrators a line. Please do come and check it out, and help spread the word to any parents you know in the local area - thanks!
My friend wanted me to post a little warning for parents of small children. Last week she sent her son to nursery as normal, and when he collected him in the evening he had horrific sunburn which needed medical attention. She has removed her child from the nursery, and is denouncing them, but would like to remind anyone who looks after a child to be very,very careful in the sun. Use sunscreen, make them wear a hat and tshirt!
I've just heard the tragic story of the child left in a hot car while his mother was at work. He died of the heat- but what many people don't realise is this can be dangerous for only a short time. Just a reminder when its hot like this kids(and dogs) should never be left in a car even with windows open and air con on!
