Expat knitting circle booted out of Fuengirola restaurant

By Rob Horgan,

A GROUP of generous expats was ousted from its knitting circle hours before they were due to hand over 1,300 items of baby clothes to a Malaga orphanage.

Sewers from Knit and Natter were left in the street after Bah Humbug bosses at Carihuela Chica restaurant in Fuengirola booted them out.

Thankfully owners at Gelato y Mare – a nearby ice cream parlour – saw the stranded sewers and came to the rescue with an act of genuine Christmas kindness.

Freya Aldridge, founder of Knit and Natter, said: “We had a horrible morning, we had everything set up and ready to go and then we were booted out on to the street.”

Fellow knitter, Jean Owen, said: “It was absolutely outrageous, they knew we had planned to hand over the clothes and what they did to us was awful.

“We are so grateful to Gelato y Mare for saving the day.”

Staff at Carihuela Chica have so far refused to comment.
