Ready for use

THE keys of Betlem will be returned to the Arta town council on Tuesday. Six months ago, the council was ordered by the court to hand over the keys to the promoter Cala Veya SA, who own Betlem which is in the area known as Es Canons, close to Colonia de Sant Pere. However, in what Mayor Rafel Gili described as “an act of good will” the owners will cede the use of the houses there to the council, free of charge, over Easter and in the summer. The Mayor said that the houses would be used as a camp for local schoolchildren.

Body found in well

FIREMEN recovered the body of a woman from the bottom of a well in Son Macia shortly before noon yesterday. The woman, who has not been named, was 78 years old. National Police officers are investigating the case, to determine how she came to be in the well.

Ready for Easter

THE Santa Barbara religious brotherhood which organises the Holy Week processions in the town, will this year carry its first paso, a float bearing sculpted figures depicting a scene from the Passion of Christ, during the processions. The brotherhood was founded in 2001 and is the only one in the town, where there will be processions on March 24 and 25.

Honorary title

THE town council has granted Joan Miralles Gomila the honorary title of Batle (Mayor) del Puig 2005. This is an honour awarded annually to a resident who has performed outstanding services for the town. Miralles has donated blood on 54 occasions, was a town councillor and also helped promote the native breed of dog known as a ca rater.

Land purchased

THE town council has purchased a plot of land of 705 square metres in Calle Pou Bo, next to Calle Mayor, to build four subsidised flats and between 26 and 30 parking spaces and a shop, Mayor Francesc Aguiló announced. The land cost 204'000 euros.
