Lanzarote Campers Beware!

Campers at Playa de San Juan in Famara on Wednesday were rudely awakened at 7.30am by El Seprona who evicted them off the beach! It seems that the for the time being it's not acceptable to camp in non designated areas. The action has sparked numerous comments from local residents who believe that you should be able to camp in Lanzarote as long as there is no damage to the environment and that any rubbish is removed, in particular excrement.

The Ministerio de Medio Ambiente in Las Palmas have explained that the Ley de Costas (law of the coastline) prohibits any camping in sand. The law states that any person that erects a tent in a prohibited coastal place will face a fine of up to €30.05 Euros per square metre per day. These evicted campers were not fined this time but ordered to leave the beach. The offending campers said that they have been camping in Lanzarote for the past 20 years and were outraged at the eviction.  read more »

Lanzarote Football, Lanzarote 2 Tenerife B 2

The Rojillos fight back from 1-2 down with 10 men to draw level in the final minute of play with a penalty converted by Lanzarote’s top scorer Rubén Rodriguez.

Juachi and ex rojillo oscar martin140310 The opening stages of the game did not flow well with the Referee stopping and starting the game with unnecessary free kicks being awarded to both sides. The Conejeros (locals) then began to start enjoying the majority of the ball and in the 9th minute the home side took the lead. A free kick swung into the six yard box from Rubén was chased by Carlitos, without touching the ball his run deceived both defence and goalkeeper and the ball ended up in the bottom left hand corner giving Lanzarote a fortunate 1-0 lead. The Rojillos were now looking to increase their lead. In the 25th minute an inch perfect through ball from Jotha found Carlitos but the striker got the ball stuck under his feet and he was crowded out of the way by a host of Tenerife defenders. A minute later and a 20 yard effort from left back Juachi looked destined for the top left hand corner but the Tenerife keeper acrobatically dived and brilliantly saved with his right hand and only conceded a corner kick. The Tenerife manager was not happy with what he was seeing and on the half hour he ordered two of his subs Airam the leagues top scorer, and ex- Rojillo Oscar Martin to warm up. This seemed to do the trick as the Primera Liga’s B side gradually edged back into the game and went into the half time break trailing by a single goal.  read more »

Raggle Taggle Gypsies

Derek & Jake 1 Lanzarote’s hardest working duo are out and about on Wednesday 17th March, St. Patrick’s Day.

This duo only generally work one day a year together but certainly make the most of it!

Derek and his son Jake, 14 have been playing together for the past four years and are so much in demand this year that they are going to pull out all the stops for a shattering four gig paddy’s day bonanza.

Derek plays acoustic guitar and sings while Jake is the mandolin maestro, his nimble fingers making the double stringed instrument sing! The energy is infectious from this musical pair who enjoy the gigs as much as the audience. They love the participation of the crowd and singing and dancing is encouraged, get up and do your turn or just sing a long in your seat.

Their set includes some haunting traditional songs such as Finnegans Wake, Raggle Taggle Gypsies and Whiskey In The Jar, the big chorus crowd pleasers Dirty Old Town and Galway Girl and some more modern Celtic rock stuff with  covers from Horslips, Waterboys, Rem, The Pogues  and Steve Earl to mention a few.  read more »
