Adeje council guarantees ongoing basic services for residents
A reminder that all volunteer services must be registered with the Tenerife Cabildo
Mercedes Vargas Delgado, councillor for
Community Welfare, and Raquel Rodríguez Alonso, councillor for citizen
participation, have expressed their gratitude for, “the huge amount of
community-solidarity suggestions the council is receiving from the public,
showing just what a caring and unified borough we are, demonstrating that above
all we want to make sure our neighbours are looked after”. Many of the proposals received have been, say
the councillors, ingenious.
On behalf of the council overall the two
representatives also wanted to send a message of calm and tranquillity to the
people of the borough, reminding everyone that Adeje has its own resources to
guarantee the ongoing provision of basic indispensible services in the borough.
As well as mentioning the council work
force, the team from EMSA, the Adeje municipal services company, are working, as
well as teams from UTE Ascan Torrabonaf (rubbish and cleaning service), the
volunteer fire-fighters, the Policía
Local and the other security forces in operation.
The Adeje council reminds the public
that all social voluntary work, and this applies at all times, not just during the
state of emergency, has to carried out through the Cabildo ‘Oficina de
Voluntariado’ which has a “Tenerife Solidario” system, through which various
different organisations can become accredited in the island. (https://www.tenerifesolidario.org/es).
