Hola a todos,

Has anyone missed the Ayamonte Club? It seems to have been amalgamated without any announcement

Someone’s pressed the wrong button.
Or the Taliban have gone further than anyone realised.

So it’s goodnight from me, and goodnight from him .

Why goodnight? All the threads are still available, nothing's changed, your subscriptions to the threads will still work. There obviously wasn't enough traffic on the Ayamonte board to make having a separate one worthwhile. It's quite normal for Admin to close and redirect traffic when there's not much activity happening on a board.

Well its unlike the mods/admin to do this without any explanation, even out of courtesy, for a long running sub-forum...

Ive also got a load of messages in my inbox all saying the same thing, (I suppose, I'm not going to read them all...)... No-one wants that....

So right now, like the other posts, Im not sûre why this was done - though this may be a reasonable guess....

Hi Folks

The tech guys have been at work and it looks like they did not inform Bob the Site Lead in time for him to provide you all with an announcement.

All of the Ayamonte threads are now within the main forum so nothing is lost. Many, many times the threads in Ayamonte and the main forum are duplicated, issues such as Covid, travel, residency, driving licences etc are national not local so it makes sense for them all to be under one roof. Sub forums have a tendency to segregate members which is not what BE is about, we are all living in Spain so having one forum makes perfect sense. Ayamonte is a very small part of Spain so there is no clear reason to maintain a separate area in the forum.

I know that you are all disappointed to see it removed but I hope that you will all continue to contribute in the various threads.

So, How do I now find previous threads of information? Also, how do I ask for local information? We used to be able to get VERY HELPFUL local information via the Ayamonte Forum. ?????

OMG There are 1117 pages in the Spain Forum - they have to be kidding!!!!! How can I find what I am looking for????? I suspect people like me will abandon this platform and revert to Facebook Groups for local advice. Maybe that is what they want.

Anyway, I'll give it a try here. Can anyone local to Ayamonte advise me on changing my Green Residency Card for the TIE. I've looked at all the UK Govt. advice and tried to follow the instructions and FAILED! I hate failing but don't seem to be able to put all the pieces of admin together...

So, has anyone used a local Gestor to complete the process? Can anyone recommend someone, how much will it likely cost (not the fee for the card which is 12€) and am I best to wait until September when all the holidays are over.
Thank in advance to anyone who can guide me through the process.

There is a search feature that should bring up relevant threads, just as if you'd searched in the Ayamonte forum.

If you start your own thread with your question (it's likely to be missed tucked away in this thread), I'm sure people will be able to help.

HTH & good luck.
