Tenerife rumour mill working overtime following closure of Starco Commercial centre

​THE Tenerife rumour mill has been working overtime this week following the closure of Starco Commercial centre ahead of the busiest night of the year.

Thousands of holiday-makers were disappointed, hundreds of workers were hit in the pocket and bar-owners were left furious with the closing of the centre at 530pm last Thursday, just hours before England played Uruguay.

Starco has been closed ever since, but, as we go to press on Thursday evening, there are strong indications that the area could be reopened this weekend.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
