Girls to join choir

THE Lluc Boys Choir is looking to the future and allowing girls to join in the choir at the Lluc Basilica Church for the first time. The Boys Choir has been in exsitence for 474 years and this and other changes for the better will be made for the 2005-2006 school year. It is hoped that these changes will boost the number of students. To entice more students the Lluc Church has made weekly interns optionally, in this way pupils can stay Monday to Friday instead of Monday to Sunday if they wish. This is the first Boys Choir that will allow girls to join, and choir in Montserrat is now studying this possibility.

Books are friends

T HE Petra town council has granted 3'000 euros to the project called “A book, a friend”, which the Juniper Serra School is running. The aim of this project is “to make pupils more aware about looking after their books and the environment, and to make it cheaper for those families on low incomes when buying new school books”. A further aim is to create a small library of school books, that pupils can borrow. The town council thinks that this project is “very interesting”.

200 year anniversary

T HE residents in Arta will this Sunday be celebrating the 200 year anniversary of the Betlem Hermitage. To celebrate the event there will be events held on Sunday 1 May from 9am onwards. The day will start with a walk up to sa Colta from the Hermitage, paella, a mass and more. All funds raised will go towards restoring the hermitage.

Help for the roads

T HE Binissalem town council have asked for financial aid from the Plan for Works and Services (POS) drawn up by the Council of Majorca, so that 16 roads can be resurfaced and some of them can also have better water channels. At the council meeting last night are agreed to ask for a budget of 501'000 euros to carry out these much needed work. Calle de Rectoria and calle de Concepcion will be two of the roads which will be resurfaced if the plan is agreed by the Council of Majorca. This proposal has come after many complaints from residents in the area due to the uneven surfaces of many roads.

Cleaning needed

T HE former Mayor and the Socialist councillor, Josep Gomila, have criticised the current rubbish problems in the area, even though more cleaning personnel have been employed. “The streets with few residents are the dirtiest, as the other populated streets are cleaned by the residents”, they said. The councillor said that there have been complaints from the residents about the cleaning and rubbish collection in the area. Josep Gomila made references to the state of the park in Alaro, which “is unkept and not very tidy”, he added.
