Weather 20th July 2017 – Los Cristianos/Las Americas

I have lots of things to do and it looks as if it is going to be a lovely day, so getting them out of the way early. Temperatures at 8.15am are currently 24°C but looking at the maximum heat weather chart for the day it looks as if it will reach around 30°C. Now the sky is cloudless, the sun is shining, the air is at long last clear, the dogs are walked and fed.  So let’s stop to enjoy the moment then get started 🙂

The calima seems to have finally gone. Heat and fire risk warnings have come down and we are back to normal until the next time.  It was only disappointing that last night at the Royal Beach We didn´t have the magnificent sunset of a previous occasion.

Adeje new businesses training

The Adeje CDTCA (Costa Adeje Centre for Tourism Development) recently ran a course on setting up businesses, with 18 participants, business persons who have recently or are about to establish a new enterprise. The aim of the course, led by specialist Sabita Navalrai Jagtani Jagnati, was to impart basic and important information about being self-employed.

The initiative was the idea of the employment arm of the provincial confederation of businesses (CEOE-Tenerife), with financing from the Canarian Employment service and the European Social fund in conjunction with the Adeje council.

“For quite a while we have encouraged training among the local business community, for us it is very important that entrepreneurs have all the information they need.  We are aware of the risks in setting up a new business which is why we decided to offer training in a hands-on manner”, explained the councillor for employment policies and local development Manuel Luis Méndez Martín.

The councillor continued, “Adeje is home to many self-employment initiatives, most of the them successful and the council is happy to help with all new ideas and job creation niches which all contribute to the overall economic and social growth of the borough”.

The 30 hour course offered participants the chance to learn the basic steps of setting up a business, evolving a company schematic, and developing an economic viability plan.  Participants were able to bring their own business proposals to the table which included ecological service set-ups, selective recycling proposals, online design and marketing as well as businesses perhaps better known in the borough such as restaurants, florists, shops, etc.
