Adeje volunteer Bomberos hold charity Oktoberfest on 3 October to raise funds for new fire engine

Adeje’s voluntary Fire Brigade association is holding an Oktoberfest which they hope will be a fun day as well as raising funds to buy a new fire engine. It’s a brilliant cause for these literally heroic volunteers. The Oktoberfest is being held from midday on Saturday, 3 October, at the fire station just below the motorway in Fañabe.

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.
