Hello and welcome to Fuertenews on this ever so important week.

Firstly, take care with bonfires being lit for St Juan over the weekend with the very dry landscape that is everywhere due to the weather, some islands have already banned the fires. So just take care.

Also, with temperatures expected to rise to mid-thirties the next couple of days the government has issued an alert, keep out of the sun as much as possible and most importantly - Keep cool!!

I guess there is a lot to keep cool about with the unexpected referendum results, Thanks to our reader for the article submitted today, don't stress yourself over it, life is too short for all that stress, the advice is the same as I gave above about the weather -  once again, just “keep cool”.

Enjoy this weeks edition, all the best

    Antiguo Café Del Puerto

    Established in 1967 this is by far the longest running Spanish restaurant in Corralejo and probably the island. The proprietor Francisco delivers tapas from his native city of Madrid which he has blended perfectly with the local Canarian specialities. As well as the Tapas the locally caught fish and “Mixed seafood grill” are mouth watering
