Beniarbeig Town Hall has decided to cancel the village fiestas, more specifically the Santo Domingo fiestas – the first weekend in August 2020- and the San Roque fiestas – the last week of August 2020- in view of the health crisis caused by the Coronavirus, as well as the possible restrictions linked to the coordination of public events over the coming months. Below is the notification put out by Beniarbeig Town Hall in respect of the cancellation:
Due to the health crisis caused by COVID-19, and with great regret on our part, but always considering the safety of our inhabitants, the Concejalía de Fiestas, headed by our councillor Mario Ortiz, along with the governing team from Beniarbeig Town Hall, and after speaking to the various groups involved with the organisation of the fiestas (Comisión 2020, parents of the young festeros, Comisión de toros, Unió Musical de Beniarbeig, Parroquia San Juan Bautista and Festeros de Santo Domingo) the decision has been made to postpone the San Roque and Santo Domingo fiestas 2020 until next year. It has been agreed that in 2021 the Comisión 2020 and the Santo Domingo festeros 2020 will lead both fiestas, which means that the age at which the young people are eligible to be festeros will be extended by one year, to 19 years of age.
From Beniarbeig Town Hall, we hope soon to be able to get back to normal and be able to celebrate our fiestas with peace and health for everyone.
To acknowledge the efforts our boys and girls are making by staying at home, Beniarbeig Town Hall would like to thank them by playing Happy Birthday through the police loudspeaker to all of those who celebrate their birthday during the lockdown.
If you would like to receive these very special congratulations on your birthday, all you need do is contact Ana (650 54 03 98).
Over recent days there has been an increase in the presence of dog excrement in some areas of the village. The town hall fears that some people, taking advantage of the current situation of fewer people being out and about, have stopped picking up their dog’s excrement. It has also come to our attention that some owners are letting their dog off lead while walking.
To solve this problem, the local police will use the time they are out controlling the adherence to the state of emergency to make a special check on the behaviour of dog owners and to impose the corresponding fines for each offence.
The town hall would also like to remind you that in the current confinement, walks with dogs should be as short as possible and always near home, they shouldn’t be used as an excuse to wander round the village.
Some of the fines detailed in the byelaws include:
