Painting the Railings - Latest Update 22 January 2008

The railings are going to be painted in Black Hammerite. The paint is on order, to be delivered this Thursday. Equipment such as chipping hammers, goggles, gloves, rollers, brushes etc have also been purchased.

Painting the Railings

Cocosol Community Management have agreed to buy Hammerite paint, brushes and chipping hammers to paint the exterior railings.

We have several volunteers from the Cocosol Owners and Residents; but we are looking for a good few more. The more volunteers we can muster, the more chance we have of finishing in one go! If anybody has any spare time please feel free to lend a hand.

We are having an informal meeting at the pool bar, on Thursday 24th, at 2:00pm to discuss plans, with the intention of starting painting on Saturday 26th January.

Please come along if you wish to take part. Watch this page for photos.

Cocosol.co.uk sponsors Pumpkin and Boo - Twinkle Trust rescue cats...

Pumpkin is female and is 2 years old - She went to the Twinkle Trust farmhouse in 2006 at approx 1 year old, after she was found with 1 surviving kitten (her other kittens were found dead close by). She and her kitten were in danger and could not be left where they were. Initially Twinkle Trust tried to re-home Pumpkin but as no home could be found she now lives at their farmhouse. She was a very devoted Mum and is very friendly to people.

Boo is male and is 2 years old - Boo went to the Twinkle Trust with his brother in 2006 at approx 7 months old. They were living rough in the main town of Puerto del Rosario and were in need of help. Boo is rather shy of people and afraid of dogs (except Molly the dog, who is the new addition to Leahn and Sasha's four legged family). Boo even spent a day and a night on top of an electrical pole after being chased up it by some local dogs. Once he knows you he is so pleased to have a stroke and cuddle and purrs very softly.
