THE Council of Majorca has agreed to the proposal that was presented by the Ministry for Education and Culture for a new nursery. In this way a new nursery, called “Ocell del Paradis” (Bird of Paradise) will be constructed in Son Ferrer. This nursery will be up and running for the next school year and will be for children aged 0 to 3 years. The nursey will only be able to cater for small numbers of children, for example in one section of the nursery for 0 to 1 year olds, there is only room for a maximum of 8 children, in the 1 to 2 year section, maximum of 13 children, and in the 2 to 3 year old section a maximum of 10 children.


FOR the last two years Manacor has been recognised, and still is recognised, as the region in Majorca with the most number of licences granted for building new houses in the countryside. In 2003, sixty-five building licences were handed out to prospective builders and land owners, and in 2004, nineteen licences were granted, which although is a decrease from the previous year, is still at the top of the table.


THE Jaume III Foundation yesterday gave two grants of 300 euros to two university students, Verónica Taver and Celia Romero, both from Llucmajor. These grants will go towards their studies in this school year, and were presented to the grateful students yesterday at the Llucmajor University Centre, said a spokesperson from the Llucmajor town council. The main aim of the Jaume III Foundation is to promote and support university studies, as well as matters connected with research, culture and art. In addition the group hands out financial help to develop sports initiatives and to projects that help protect the environment.

Car park

THE Inca town council will be closing the carpark that is alongside calle Jaume Armengol, so that they can make two more lanes of traffic. The need for these changes is due to the underground train works at the Crist Rei level crossing. One of these lanes will be exclusively for turning into Avenida General Luque and the other will be for vehicles that wish to continue on the road towards calles Murta and Born. These changes will only be temporary whilst the underground works are being carried out and will hopefully help ease the traffic problems.


THE Santanyi town council yesterday announced a campaign to collect books in the area for the library that burnt down in March. The library at a Secondary School lost around 13'000 books in the fire and needs to restock the shelves for the benefit of the readers in the area. The initiative, called “You can be a book donor” will be held today from 9.30am onwards at the Casa de Cultura, said Cristòfol Vidal, councillor for Education and Culture in the Santanyi town council. All people that donate a book today will be given a free bookmark. A group will be checking that no duplicate or ripped books will be allowed onto the library shelves.


GADMA, an environmental group, have accused a resident of destroying and building on a public path without the necessary permission. The group wants to know “why this person has kidnapped the cami de Son Agulló, with no consideration for the other residents”.
