Naix «Llegeix i gaudeix» el club de lectura de la biblioteca Marià Villangómez

llibres-club-de-lectura1El Consell de Formentera, a través de l'àrea de Cultura, informa que el pròxim dimarts 19 de novembre a les 20.00h, la Biblioteca Marià Villangómez acollirà la primera sessió del club de lectura «Llegeix i gaudeix» dirigit per la bibliotecària Lorena Francisco Garcia.

Aquest club de lectura s’ha creat arrel les inquietuds d’un grup de persones aficionades a la lectura a la nostra illa. El seu funcionament es basarà en que cada participant del club llegirà un llibre a casa seva, i l’últim dimarts de cada mes es reuniran a la biblioteca per debatre sobre el que han llegit.

La consellera d'Educació i Cultura, Susana Labrador, ha assenyalat que amb iniciatives com aquesta “pretenem fomentar la lectura entre la població de l'illa, a la vegada que es crea un grup que comparteix aquesta afició que tan beneficiosa és tant per l'adquisició de coneixements, com pel foment del pensament autocrític o com de font d'entreteniment, i que a més es pot practicar en qualsevol lloc i a qualsevol edat”.

Primer llibre: El sopar
El llibre proposat per a la primera sessió és El sopar de l’autor holandès Herman Koch. Es tracta d’una novel·la àcida i provocadora que apunta sense miraments a tota una classe social dels Països Baixos i, per extensió, a tot Europa, instal·lada en la seva satisfacció i complaença, i indiferent cap a la nova generació.

A la Biblioteca Marià Villángomez de Sant Francesc hi ha a disposició de les persones que hi vulguin participar 10 exemplars per prestar. Només s’han d’inscriure al club a través de l’adreça electrònica This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it i passar a la biblioteca per agafar el llibre i llegir-lo abans del 19 de novembre quan posaran en comú les seves impressions.

Ràdio Illa begins broadcasting from new studios

equip-de-ra--dio-illa-als-nous1Formentera’s Department of Infrastructure reports that, with construction recently completed, Ràdio Illa began broadcasting this week from the municipal radio station’s new studios. Both the old and new facilities are housed in Es Molí Social Centre, which shares a building with the Casal de Joves.

Work was valued at €44,054 and involved equipping the 50-square-metre space—located on the western side of the building’s first floor (the old studio is on the eastern side)—for professional broadcasting. Furniture was installed at a cost of €9,183, and the station received €17,495 in new radio equipment.

33 years on the airwaves
This 3 December, running parallel to Sant Francesc’s yearly festivities and Ràdio Illa’s 33rd year on the air, the municipal radio station will open its doors so islanders can see the new station. Ràdio Illa—plus technician Enrique García, Joan Garau and Carmelo Convalia, the station’s founding members—first took to the airwaves on 3 December 1986 with broadcasting equipment set up on the first storey of the old town council. A team of professionals has kept listeners abreast of local news since 2006, briefly stopping this week so the studio change could take place.

Ràdio Illa is Formentera’s public radio station. The station is owned by the Consell de Formentera and operated by the Cultural Audiovisual Association of Formentera (ACAF). A host of collaborators and contributors keep Ràdio Illa going, including coordinator Josep “Pepo” Rubio, technical chief León Convalia, producer and presenter Bernat Masferrer and writer David Setbetes.

Formentera government and trade unions sit down at negotiating table for first gathering of term

mesa-negociadorablancFormentera’s Departments of Human Resources and Management report that local government staff and career civil servants sat down with the heads of the respective departments, Paula Ferrer and Rafa Ramírez, plus the island’s councillor of the interior, Josep Marí, and General Workers' Union (UGT) and Workers' Commissions (CC.OO) union representatives, for the first gathering at the Special General Negotiating Table (Mesa extraordinària General Negociadora).

The inaugural meeting served to work towards a roadmap for the Governing Team’s efforts this legislative term. Attendees came away with orders to update the review panel so that a list of job posts known as the “staff establishment plan” (relació de llocs de treball) could be completed. They also agreed to phase in the system dubbed “horizontal professional careers” that won cross-party support last legislative term. The setup rests on three fundamental pillars: seniority, professional development and job performance. Attendees also agreed to update their collective agreement during the current legislative term.

Lastly, the gathering also brought approval for improvements to the professional development programme available to government employees, and the Consell de Formentera pledged to develop an offering of courses.

Management chief Rafa Ramírez said much had come of the introductory talk, pointing to agreements around the Governing Team’s human resources strategy moving forward. Councillor Ramírez highlighted the importance of concluding work on the establishment plan, enacting the system of horizontal professional careers, coming up with a new collective agreement and developing suitable staff training—in Ramírez’s words, “all part of improving the way we engage with islanders”.

Drawing to determine polling station attendants for 1 November

ple-16-octubre1A special full-house assembly was called today to determine the list of individuals who will assist voters as they cast their ballots in the general elections scheduled for 10 November 2019.

In a process conducted with the help of a computer application, 81 residents of Formentera were flagged as candidates for the island’s nine voting stations, where each “electoral table” must have a chairperson, two spokespeople and two alternates listed. There will be five stations at CP Mestre Lluís Andreu in Sant Francesc, three at CP Sant Ferran and one at La Mola’s primary school. A total of 7,568 islanders will have a chance to cast their ballots in the election: 7,283 are included on the Spanish registry of voters living in Spain (CER) and the other 285 are on the Spanish registry of overseas voters (CERA).

The day’s assembly also came with the announcement that Sa Unió councillor Anna Negre will step down from her position as councillor.
