A good number of residents from different nationalities and their pets attended the official opening also, with a constant flow of other people coming and going at different stages to check it all out.  Blackie, my dog, and I decided to go along and after the initial nervousness wore off dogs of all ages, colours and sizes got acquainted with each other.

Many displays of enjoyment followed: there were dogs who loved swimming or rescuing objects from the water, there was also plenty of ball and stick fetching as well as just simply just running around, digging and general playing.  As an exception and with the attending authorities blessings the dogs were allowed to be off their leashes.

Maceys Lanzarote

Maceys is a quality British supermarket based in Tías, Lanzarote offering a fabulous selection of your favourite brands and products from the UK.

Maceys LanzaroteGeoff & Sue Lockwood

Established in 2009, Maceys are situated on the high street in Tías, which is a central location for residents and visitors to stock up on food, toiletries and gift items that you miss from home.

The difference with Maceys is one that you can taste, as this supermarket only stocks British sourced goods, as opposed to Spanish made British goods. Although they can look the same from the branding, they are a different recipe to the ones we know and love. A good example of this is Cadbury’s chocolate and one of the reasons why their range of confectionery is very popular with residents.
