Welcome to Talk of the North!
Wednesday, 17 August 2005

Published every fortnight since August 17th 2005 Talk of the North is just what it says it is. It’s full of news of what’s happening up this end of Mallorca and is a forum for the English-speaking community to air its views and concerns. A proper local news sheet, produced in the north for people who live in the north or visit the area regularly, and distributed widely in Pollensa, Puerto Pollensa, Alcudia, Puerto Alcudia, Cala San Vicente and Can Picafort, Talk of the North has the area covered.

An A4-size news sheet in its printed version, Talk of the North highlights concerts, art exhibitions, new bar/restaurant/shop openings, fund-raising events for local charities, English-Speaking Residents’ Association special occasions, local church services and events
-- in fact if it’s happening in the north, we’ll tell you about it.

Talk of the North is brought to you by the publishers of the well-established (14 years) tourist magazine Holiday in Puerto Pollensa. So you can be sure it is a professional, well-produced publication which in a very short time has become as indispensable to the English-speaking community in the area as Holiday in Puerto Pollensa is to visitors.

It’s the Talk of the North and you’ll find it’s right up your street!!


In the last issue...

As the Season Ends, the Fun Begins!
The holiday season ends officially on October 31st, but that doesn't mean everyone here in the north of Mallorca puts on their slippers and hibernates for the winter! Quite the contrary.
Didn't She Do Well!
Congratulations to Pto Pollensa athlete Johanna MacDonald, pictured with her trophy and 10 year-old son Joel, who was first in her category and second female overall in Menorca's VII International Half-Marathon held in Ciutadella on October 7th.
What a Storm!
This is what Puerto Pollensa's sea-front road looked like during the storm on the afternoon of Thursday October 4th, at least we were spared the Palma tornado!
