brexit-seminarMAYORS have offered their support to British expats in Spain.

Manilva and Casares mayors Mario Jimenez and Pepe Carrasco made their commitment at the Manilva Brexit Seminar in Sabinillas.

The event also brought together Charmaine Arbouin, British consul to Andalucia, Brexpats in Spain’s Anne Hernandez, councillor Dean Tyler Shelton and Derek Langley from the Chamber of Commerce.

Arbouin urged expats to sign up to the padron so central government can increase funding to local municipalities.

“If you’re not on the padron you’re doing your community and yourself a disservice,” she said.

Access to social care would be denied to those not on the padron, she said.

It is hoped more seminars will take place over the coming months across Spain.
