A New Life in the Sun: Couple explain their ‘dilemma’
Channel 4 viewers can get insight into the lives of those who’ve made the big move abroad to pursue pastures new. Couple Kirsty and Steve have been followed as they invite guests into their Spanish holiday property. Early on, the pair opened up about the difficulties they had faced due to coronavirus and tried to solve fewer guests by hosting events. But after the move got them into a small bit of trouble with the authorities, after playing loud music one evening, Kirsty revealed her concerns the police would turn up and “close down” their events.
Kirsty and Simon run business Casa Palmera in the Andalusia area of Spain.
After the coronavirus meant many holiday bookings had to be cancelled, they started thinking of other ways to bring in an income.
The pair decided to start running events alongside their core business to try and bring in more punters.
And it seemed to pay off with the pair managing to grow the new area of their venture successfully.

However, Kirsty and Simon opened up on today’s edition about a new problem they had faced as a result of their booming events business.
The narrator explained how the local authorities had got wind of music being played loudly and had turned up to address the noise levels.
“We had a visit from the police around half eight last night and they were fine, they were good,” Simon said.
Admitting her worries, Kirsty added: “I just don’t want them to turn up and close it down, that would be terrible for this place.”
Later on in the programme, it seemed a though the issue was still getting to Kirsty, even though Simon seemed less fazed.
She noted: “We’re in a real dilemma with the events because I’m worried about blocking off a night.”
The business owner went on to explain why this could be an issue when it came to having guests to stay alongside events taking place.
Kirsty shared: “Say we blocked off a Wednesday night and someone wants to book a week’s holiday, they’re not going to be able to book it because we’ll be full.

“I don’t know what to do for the best,” she commented.
Kirsty was still concerned about music at her next event – a live music and curry night – which was to be taking place in just a couple of days.
“If the police turn up on Friday night, I will come in here maybe and hide? I’d die, I would die.
“I couldn’t imagine anything worse actually,” Kirsty admitted – but laughed off her concerns.
Prior to hosting 30 guests for their music and curry night, Simon detailed the measures he had taken to make sure the music was not an issue.
He said: “Yesterday we managed to speak actually to the mayor, he gave us a film we filled in for the event for Friday night and we got that stamped.”
Despite the reassurance, Kirsty divulged: “I’m really worried about it, it’s too important financially for us to do it tonight.”
Luckily their night went without a hitch and they were spared another visit from the local authorities over the noise after taking action.
A New Life in the Sun airs weekdays from 4pm on Channel 4.
