Google Search Results Show Wrong Date

I have a page on my website which is a news page and is update at least daily.  However when the page appears in the search results it shows "6 days ago" or similar, when it fact the page was updated that same day.

New stories are indexed almost immediately by google, but the main news page is always out of date, which of course puts people off clicking as news should be new.

The page is:


And it comes up on the first page of google.co.uk if you search for Nerja News.

The sitemap has the correct time and date in it and has the change frequency set to "hourly".

What can I do to get google to either show the correct date, or not show a date at all?

Thanks for any suggestions,

Tony
