ALIENATING THE SOCIAL SERVICES
Contributor / 2012-03-13 09:51:07
I would like to make a suggestion to Norah Bond that she changes the name of her charity to HAHA instead of HAH following the “comedy” performance last week at the Civic Centre in Playa Flamenca.
My wife and I have been following HAH’s progress for a while and it is very positive to see that someone is trying to get through to the authorities on our (the public) behalf. We were both looking forward to the informative meeting with the Social Services to see exactly what we are entitled to and how to go through the correct channels to obtain it. Let’s face it, we like others, are not getting any younger and we want to stay here in Spain and not be a burden on our family in the UK.
The meeting which started off ok quickly turned into a farce. One lady very rudely interrupted the meeting with questions she wanted answers to none of which had anything to do with the meeting. Then to make matters worse Mrs. Bond brought her own meeting to a standstill by holding up a petition and asking for signatures! I could not unfortunately understand the Spanish social workers who attended the meeting but they were certainly not happy and started packing up ready to leave.
This meeting could have been a step towards working together with Social Services. My wife said they certainly won’t be in hurry to sit down with us again. What a shame!
