LEVANTE’S Roy Molyneux

News Spain - Sept 2013

levantegolfLEVANTE’S Roy Molyneux is enjoying a purple patch of form. After winning Division 2 at the society’s previous meeting, at Villaitana, his handicap was cut to 18.1 and he moved up the ladder into Division 1. And in the next meeting, at Oliva Nova, Roy did it again. A 38 point return won the Division 1 top prize and brought another cut in handicap – to 17.5. Second in Division 1 was Vaughan Dillon with 37 points, three clear of third-placed Anne Edwards. Dave Geeson was the day's top points scorer. His 41 point return means that he too joins the ranks of Division 1 players - the winning score moving his handicap down from 18.9 to 17.1. Meanwhile, Levante’s president Frank Carroll showed that a break can often help your golf. This was Frank’s first game in two months and his 37 points gave him second spot in Division 2, one more than third-placed Alan Simpson.

A benefit fraudster who claimed his wife was really his sister

News Spain - June 2013

And another who said she needed the cash for satellite TV, are among the latest examples of strange excuses that Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) benefit fraud investigators have heard over the last year. Other odd stories told to DWP officers include a claimant who, using a fake ID, said her skin colour had changed after a road accident; a man who blamed his evil twin; and a woman who claimed she wasn't in a relationship but just had a three-night stand resulting in three children over five years. These unlikely stories are revealed as the Government announces a new campaign to target benefit fraudsters - encouraging claimants to come clean about any changes to their circumstances and urging the public to report suspicions about possible fraudsters to the National Benefit Fraud Hotline.

LETTING YOUR PASSPORT EXPIRE CAN COST MORE THAN YOU THINK

More than 6000 emergency passports issued in Spain last year. The number of emergency passports issued by British Consulates in Spain rose 11% last year to a total of 6005 – more than a fifth (22%) of the Foreign Office world total. The increase has triggered the British Embassy to warn British expats to take care of their passports, check the expiry date and renew them in good time.
