The Social Network

Isidro Alonso Gil is the Social Services councillor for Lanzarote's largest municipality, Teguise, and he and his team have certainly had their work cut out for them over the last year. We spoke to him last month.

Lockdown Memories

In our January issue we usually focus on the events of the past year. But last year offered one event that was so unexpected, so shocking and so unforgetable that everything else pales in comparison: Lockdown.

Making a difference

Aduén Morales García is a powerhouse. The young man from Argana Alta in Arrecife is one of the directors of the litter-collecting charity Lanzarote Limpia, a director of the Argana Alta Residents' Movement, Vice President of the Unión Norte Canarian wrestling club in Haría and a volunteer for Cáritas and a prisoners' reinsertion charity. We were lucky enough to grab him just before an important meeting at the Cabildo.

Bright Horizons

For this month's cover shoot we'd planned to head to Timanfaya but as we reached Matagorda, photographer Sabrina realised that the sand at low tide was reŠflecting the massive sky above. It was the perfect place. Later we had a word with our model, local lad Marcos Knight.

Lighting up lives

Steering Lanzarote Through

María Dolores Corujo took control of the Cabildo in June 2019, leading a coalition ruling group that removed the Coalición Canaria and its leader, Pedro San Ginés, from power after almost ten years. Nine months later, the coronavirus arrived, Lanzarote locked down and everybody's political priorities changed. As the island's most difficult year for decades comes to an end, we asked her for her impressions.
