Winter in L'Ametlla de Mar - 1 replies

Tinita Posted by Tinita in General L'Ametlla de Mar discussion on Wed Jan 24, 2024 12:56pm

Hi everyone, 

my husband and I are contemplating buying a house close to L'Amettla. It is supposed to be a winter home, while we would rent it out in the summer. 

However, we are a little concerned about lack of options for going out and dining, etc in winter. What would you consider the nearest town with decent options? Is there a nice little village with a historic centre where locals go for tapas in winter? Also, where could we find supermarkets that cater also to vegans and vegetarians?

Thanks for your help

Tinita

UK Ex-Pat Winter Fuel Payment - 2 replies

StuBurt Posted by StuBurt in Utilities: Electric, gas and water recommendations and advice in Salou on Mon Oct 30, 2023 12:13pm



There are over 500,000 UK Ex-pats living in France and Spain many of whom are retired old age pensioners.

About 10 years ago Iain Duncan Smith called for wealthy pensioners who do not need benefit payments such as winter fuel allowance and free bus passes benefit payments should voluntarily hand back the money to the government. I would enjoy reading the audited statistics of the money repaid.

Shock horror when all UK Ex-Pats living in France and Spain had their Winter Fuel Allowance cancelled.

The then Work and Pensions Secretary explained that calculations were made on official temperature figures for each country, based on a five month winter that represents the coldest time of the year in the UK, matching existing criteria used by the government for other forms of cold weather payment.

In response to questions about recognising the variance of temperatures depending on altitude and region, Mr Duncan Smith said the government had looked at a system of weighting temperatures for areas with heavy populations of British pensioners, as opposed to calculating using figures for each whole country. But as the highest concentrations of British pensioners were often found in the warmer parts of European countries, it would have meant at least as many countries would be excluded as under the adopted scheme, if not more.

On the complaint that warmer overseas territories of countries like France, Spain and Portugal had skewed the results for British pensioners in those countries, the Work Minister said that European law would have to be changed for France’s Caribbean islands, Spain’s Canary Islands and Portugal’s Atlantic islands not to be included in the calculations.

The changes implemented including the system of weighting meant that the measurement of temperature was altered to suit the new criteria thus denying UK Ex-Pat pensioners the Winter Fuel Allowance

For those of us UK Ex-pats that live full-time in France and Spain

we know just how cold the winter months may be.

Please view my UK government petition

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/647060

 to try and reinstate our much needed benefit to keep warm in winter and please inform others that may support the petition.
