"Empowering Marbella: Unleashing a Wave of Women's Safety in the Face of Predatory Threats at the Festival"

"Marbella Festival Unleashes a Radiant Wave of Women's Safety: Fun, Awareness, and No-Nonsense!"

Get ready for a week of exhilaration and empowerment at the upcoming San Bernabé Fair and Festivities in Marbella from June 6 to June 12. This year, the festival isn't just about rides, music, and delicious food; it's also taking a stand for women's safety like never before.

The Marbella Council has teamed up with renowned experts to tackle the pressing issue of sexual predators and the dangers faced by women. On Wednesday, June 7, the brilliant Dr. Carmen Agüera will take the stage to unveil the sneaky tricks of drink spiking and chemical submission – favourite tactics of those vile predators. This talk is aimed at our local heroes, the esteemed members of the Local Police and Civil Protection, to equip them with knowledge about the substances used, symptoms to watch out for, and how to respond swiftly and efficiently.

But that's not all! Dr. Patricia Alemán, along with nurses Teresa Báez and María José Serrano from the Costa del Sol Hospital, will charm an audience of approximately 400 cool secondary school students. Their mission? To educate these young minds on recognizing sexual abuse, providing them with the information they need to seek help if they ever find themselves victims or witnesses.

The festival's sixth consecutive year of prevention campaigns will also feature a designated contact point. At this magical spot, the Equality Delegation's finest experts and law enforcement personnel will be on hand, ready to offer invaluable advice, information, and support in the face of sexist aggression.

And let's not forget the fashion-forward aspect of this epic event! Brace yourself – literally – for fashionable bracelets carrying bold messages like 'Harassing is not flirting' and 'Only yes is yes.' We're spreading the word in style! Plus, as a timely reminder to all party-goers, we'll be distributing lids for your glasses, because nothing spoils the fun like unwanted substances finding their way into your beverage.

So, get your dancing shoes ready, your voices prepared to roar, and your spirits lifted for a Marbella Festival that goes beyond the norm. Join us in celebrating women's safety, enlightenment, and a dose of unforgettable fun. Together, we can create a vibrant and secure environment for everyone!

Estepona Sun Kisses Presenter’s Cheek with Warm, Spotlight Embrace!

With the sun casting its radiant, daily spotlight overhead, Estepona rolls out its golden sands as a welcome mat, beckoning “A Place in the Sun” celeb, Jasmine Harman, and her delightful troop - husband and kiddos included - into its warm embrace for a delightful act titled: New Beginnings. Jasmine, no stranger to the tantalizing dance between dwellings and dreamers with her two-decade waltz on Channel 4, has been the fairy god-presenter, sprinkling home-finding magic dust from Portugal to Malta to Cyprus. Yet, after years of orchestrating homey happily-ever-afters, she’s chosen to pen her own, right in the heart of sun-soaked Estepona. “It was a canvas of years in the painting,” Jasmine confided in Hello! Magazine with a smile akin to one indulging in a delightful secret. “With each year gently nudging us towards craving more moments stitched together with family laughter and wrapped in quality time. And thus, with a dash of courage and a sprinkle of adventure, our decision bloomed, o

"Spain and England's World Cup Waltz: The Pinnacle Plays of the Pitch!"

 "La Roja and the Lionesses set for a Down Under Duel in Sydney! Prepare for a football fiesta as Spain's La Roja squares off against England's Lionesses at the iconic Stadium Australia this sunny Sunday, 20 August. The stakes? Just the little matter of the Women's World Cup title. For both teams, it's uncharted territory. They've danced around the finals before, but never quite made it to the last tango. Spain's road to the finals was nothing short of a nail-biter. With a thrilling 2-1 victory over Sweden, where the scoreboard remained dormant until the last 10 minutes, La Roja proved they love a little late-game drama. As for the Lionesses, they showed their mettle by taming the co-hosts, Australia, with a captivating 3-1 win. Now, with the world watching, both squads are on the prowl, each looking to pounce and claim their first-ever Women's World Cup crown. May the best team win (and the fans get to enjoy some fantastic football)!"

Marbella's Shoreline Set for a 'Sand-sational' Upgrade!

With a 'can-do' spirit that would make a sand castle builder proud, the Marbella town hall is steering a beach revitalisation project right off the pages of a fairy tale. Like a magnificent sand migration, the process kicked off at Las Chapas-Alicate and will sweep through Casablanca, La Fontanilla, and San Pedro Alcántara.  Mayor Ángeles Muñoz let slip that a mountainous 120,000 cubic metres of sand would be borrowed from the town hall’s own treasure chest to finance this sandy renaissance. "The central government seems content playing in the shallow end, leaving us to dive deep for a definitive coastline stabilisation solution," Mayor Muñoz said, clearly not one to bury her head in the sand. In a stroke of midnight genius, the work is taking place under the cloak of darkness - from midnight until 8am - sparing sun-seekers and local business the sight of bulldozers invading their tranquil beaches. Mayor Muñoz confessed that the project couldn't have hit the groun
