The Ayuntamiento expressed their thanks to the population and visitors who collaborated with the collection of plastic bottle tops in the Charity Heart that was located in the centre of Corralejo. Over the past few months, the participation of the population resulted in the collect of 3.000 kilos of plastic bottle tops, a full truck of plastic to be recycled that was presented to the Majorero Association for Mental Health, ASOMASAMEN. Thanks to the help of La Oliva's population, ASOMASAMEN will receive the collaboration from the recycling company in order to cover some of their necessities.
The Ayuntamiento also thanked the implication of Corralejo’s businesses that participated since the beginning in the initiative of the Charity Heart. The Ayuntamiento installed this sculpture shaped as a heart in Avenue Nuestra Señora del Carmen in Corralejo around nine months ago, as an addition to the project of Hija del Herrero, an initiative created by the sculptor Moisés Afonso and his daughter Nerea. It was actually a drawing from Nerea that inspired the artist to create a sculpture for charity that is located in many locations in the Canaries.
The Ayuntamiento continues with its investment programme for the renovation of the main children's play parks of the municipality with renovations that started last month in the park located by Corralejo's Town Hall. The Projects and Services' Council is in charge of removing completely all the old equipment as this is a “total renovation of the old park. We inform the population that, logically, the park won't be available during the renovations for approximately a month and a half, which we apologise for.
But this is necessary and worth the wait because of the improvements carried out”, explained the councillor, Oliver González. The Council for Parks and Gardens is the department that finances and coordinates the new installations that represent an investment of 60.000 Euros for a new park that will consist of two separate areas. A children's area with games for young children and another area for sports' activities, including anti-fall and anti-vandalism furniture. One of the main novelties is the installation of a padded floor.
