San Fulgencio Town Council approves its first Municipal Youth Plan for the period 2022-2025

The document is the result of a participatory process that aims to mark a new stage for young people in San Fulgencio

The Plenary meeting of the San Fulgencio Town Council has given the green light to its Municipal Youth Plan for the period 2022-2025. As indicated by the councillor responsible for the area, Samantha Hull, “for the first time we have this document that aims to be a roadmap and responds to the needs of young people in the town, in addition to improving municipal services and benefits aimed especially at them.

This plan has been drawn up through a participatory process in which politicians and municipal technicians as well as the teaching staff of the educational centre and other professionals, as well as the young people of the municipality themselves, have taken part. “It was very important for us to involve young people in the design and planning of this first plan, as well as in its development and evaluation,” said Hull.

In this way, the document has given priority to six areas of action: the housing situation and the difficulty of emancipation of young people; equality, studies and training; health and well-being; leisure and free time; and citizen participation. Hull said that “within each of these themes, the Council has developed numerous measures and actions to meet the demands of the young people of San Fulgencio, which we will soon begin to implement and see materialised”.

Hull also pointed out that the success of the plan will depend “not only on the will of the public authorities, but also on the participation and initiative shown by the young people themselves”. It is in this sense that the councillor has made an appeal “to our young people and social partners involved in this area, so that they do not hesitate to participate and to come to the councillor’s office that I represent to transmit any idea or action that they consider important and want to contribute to the benefit of the youth of San Fulgencio”.

  • The mayor, José Sampere, has handed over 21 waistcoats valued at more than 16,000 euros for all the officers who make up the force

The Mayor of the municipality and head of the Department of Public Safety, José Sampere, this morning handed over 21 new bulletproof vests for all the officers who make up the Local Police Force of San Fulgencio, accompanied by its Chief Commissioner, Cristóbal Rodríguez.

This new equipment and its identifying velcro has been purchased by the Department of Security for a value of 16,317 euros. The objective, as indicated by the mayor, is “to have a well-prepared and well-equipped police force, equipped with the right working tools to carry out its work of protecting the citizens of San Fulgencio more easily and in the best possible safety conditions”. The waistcoats model PBH610XSG/PROTECOP GPB are also resistant against sharp objects, with a resistance of 24 joules according to the applicable regulations.

Last Saturday the town celebrated the feast of the Holy Guardian Angels, patron saints of the Local Police, with an act of imposition of decorations and medals in the Town Hall in recognition of the actions carried out in 2022 and its agents with 25 years of service, also thanking them for the work they do every day to maintain security in the municipality.

San Fulgencio presents a new mobile application for the promotion of tourism in the municipality

  • The ‘Discover San Fulgencio’ app will provide useful information to tourists, visitors and residents alike

The San Fulgencio Town Council this morning presented the mobile application ‘Discover San Fulgencio’. A new initiative of the Department of Tourism which aims to “promote the town and provide information about the municipality to those who visit us during the summer months,” said Darren Parmenter, councillor responsible for the area.

The app features information on the history of the town and places of interest, as well as a directory of bars, restaurants, shops and local businesses, which allows direct bookings to be made at these establishments. In addition, “all those establishments that wish to appear in this database can do so and submit an application through the questionnaire that they will find in the same application,” said the councillor.

However, the app will not only be aimed at tourists and visitors. “San Fulgencio has a considerable number of year-round residents, and it is another way of getting information to them,” he said. “There are many people who don’t follow social networks or local news, but almost everyone has a mobile phone and is familiar with using these applications,” he added. For this reason, it also includes useful information for citizens, such as useful telephone numbers, bus timetables and up-to-date information on local festivals and activities. For his part, Tomás Hernández, delegate of the company that developed the app, pointed out that it is translated into four languages (Spanish, English, French and German) to provide greater accessibility to people of different nationalities, “as well as being very intuitive and easy to use, both for young people accustomed to new technologies and for older people”, and is available for download from the usual mobile application platforms.

The mayor of San Fulgencio, José Sampere, said that this initiative is “another idea to put us on the map and remind people who we are and where we are, especially after the last two years of the pandemic, which has led to restrictions on tourism and travel”. Sampere also pointed out that “we hope that this new promotional tool will help us to promote San Fulgencio and its urbanisations as a tourist and residential destination, as well as serving our businesses and establishments as an opportunity for economic growth and visibility”.

San Fulgencio launches a free online training portal for residents of the municipality

The platform has more than 150 courses on eight different subjects that can be accessed by all residents over 16 years of age

San Fulgencio Town Council, through the Youth Department, has launched a new training platform available to all residents of the municipality. This initiative, which started last Tuesday, “offers citizens more than 150 online courses in the fields of Tourism, Technology and Design, Management and Administration, Attention to Diversity and Participation; Hospitality and Commerce, trades such as masonry or carpentry; Culture, sport and leisure; and prevention of Covid-19,” said Samantha Hull, councillor responsible for the area.

As the councillor pointed out, “this is a very interesting initiative for those who wish to complete their training in an easy and simple way, as they can access it from home via the internet, without having to travel to any centre”. The only requirement for the use of this platform, which will be completely free for residents, “will be to be over 16 years old and reside in the municipality, with no age limit,” said Hull. The only limitation for the completion of courses will be to complete the previous one to be able to start the next one, and once the training is finished, users will obtain a diploma certifying the professional skills acquired in it.

The mayor has encouraged the population to use this platform, an initiative that “from the City Council of San Fulgencio we are convinced that it will contribute to the progress of our municipality, improving the education and training of all residents. Hull also said that “training is key to the development of our society, and this comprehensive training offer will contribute to further progress towards a better future for everyone”.

Those interested in registering for this platform can do so by accessing the portal https://triaformacion.com/sanfulgencio, where they must choose the course to be taken, select the option “Enrol” and fill in the details on the form. Likewise, for general doubts or queries about the courses or the enrolment process, you can contact the Youth Department by telephone on 637 309 894, by email at juventud@ayto-sanfulgencio.es, or in person during opening hours from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm.
