In a village of approximately 800, there are often unexpected power cuts, sometimes for a few minutes, sometimes for a few hours, sometimes once a week and sometimes several times a day. It’s something we have learned to live with and always have candles at torches at hand in case the cuts are in the dark. So, what causes it? Well, certainly in the holiday and fiesta seasons many families have visitors and so one expects the demand to increase, but these cuts are often when least expected and when you consider the size of the ‘sub-station’ in the village, is it really a surprise!!!
The fact that there is a cement mixer and breeze blocks close to the sub-staion might indicate that the town hall are thinking of extending, but no, they are there because the house in the background has just been newly built!!
