RAIN is not the main thing hitting the streets of southeastern Spain today.
Expats and local Spaniards alike have come out in force to support the exciting launch of the Olive Press Costa Blanca South/ Murcia edition.
From Mazarron to Gran Alicant and everywhere in between, the region’s hottest new English newspaper represents your voice in Spain.
Golf courses, cafes, supermarkets, estate agents and tourist offices are all getting bundles of Spain’s most popular English newspaper, now with FIVE editions.
After the highly successful launch of our Costa Blanca North edition in March, it was only a matter of time before its southern sibling came along.
As well as being an investigative community newspaper that campaigns on crucial local issues, the Olive Press is packed with gripping features and long reads.
Be sure to join our smiling readers, who were up bright and early this morning to get their hands on one of 10,000 copies at our hundreds of key distribution points.
Going out today and tomorrow, we promise it will go to all the main places where expats of all nationalities gather in the area.
This includes DFS, Iceland, Mas y Mas, Consum and Dialprix, plus many many more.
And we’re catering for tourists too, as you can see from the smiling faces of the team at San Fulgencio Tourist Office.
Our first front page carries an article about the tragic disappearance of pensioner Philip Pearce, who was allowed to leave the police station in a ‘clearly disoriented state’.
We also look at the Mar Menor crisis, the rise of the far right Vox party ahead of the Spanish elections, and even pay an unexpected visit to grumpy Great British Bake Off star Paul Hollywood.
