The recently created Foreign Residents Association of Estepona, A.R.E.M.E. (Asociacion de Residentes Extranjeros de Municipio de Estepona), is hoping to build influence with the Town Hall and the Police so that issues concerning the foreign population can be heard.
Foreigners in Estepona make up some 30% of the town’s population and yet their voice and opinion are often not fully represented. AREME hopes to address this issue by encouraging Estepona’s foreign residents to join the association for just 1€ per year. Obviously the more members there are the more the greater the affect they can have.
Application forms, to join, can be obtained from The Tourist Office near to Estepona Port or by email from Ray Oldfield (rayoldfield @ gmail.com) or Chris Rawlinson (dr_c_rawlinson @ hotmail.com). You can also join at any of the meetings.
The next meeting of AREME will take place at Estepona Palacio de Congresos in the foyer on Saturday March 29 from 11.00am to 2.00pm. A member of the Committee will be on hand to help you fill in the application form to join and obtain your membership card at the meeting.
