The Mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas, along with various councillors, were out on the streets of Arroyo de la Miel on Wednesday 30 November, to distribute more than 2,000 poinsettias – Christmas plants - among residents and business owners in the town. The initiative, which is part of the council’s annual Christmas campaign to bring a festive feel to the streets and squares of the town, is aimed at shops, cafes and restaurants to help them decorate their windows and facades, while local residents are asked to display them on their balconies.

The council has already installed thousands of lights and an array of decorations and Christmas trees throughout most of the neighbourhoods and the outskirts of the town.

“Once again, this initiative is added to the Christmas decoration of the streets and the various events and activities that we have organised to recover Christmas after the hardest years of the pandemic,” the mayor said.

The initiative coincides with the town hall’s annual prize competition for the best decorated shop windows and facades.
