Abandoned fishing nets

Just watched an item BBC news re abandoned fishing nets and the problems they cause for sea life. Absolutely appalling, they can weigh hundreds of tonnes and trap dozens of species of sea life. Several volunteer groups from the UK, possibly other countries, going out to cut these nets free and bring...

Re: Tourism season means increased crime

Surely better to leave the valuables at home in the bank vault?? Simply bring credit/debit cards on holiday.? Is that too simple?

Re: Ledra Street

Thanks for that. Been there several times, including before the border was opened. Remember taking pics and being scared the UN troops would arrest me! So much easier and pleasant now.

Re: Spate of burglaries In Pahos & Peyia

Agree Lincoln. I've always felt much safer here than in the UK, particularly with the spate of stabbings and shootings in the UK.

Any of the Paphiakos Charity shops, including the Bookshop and Bric a Brac shop in Tremithousa, will happily take the plastic bottle tops.

Re: Death on Cyprus - urban roads three times higher than EU average

Always am Trev. It's the main thing the advanced driver training taught me. I'm always very aware of what's going around, behind and in front of me. They teach a spoken dialogue of what's happening around and in front, and although I found it difficult at the time, I find myself still doing it to my...

Re: 6th body found ouf of 7 admitted murders - #mitseromurders

Thoughts and prayers are so with the families of these women and children. So heartbreaking for their relatives. I pray for peace in the hearts of the families, difficult though that is. This man deserves the whole weight of the law on his head. Spending the rest of his life in prison is really no r...

Re: Death on Cyprus - urban roads three times higher than EU average

I'm with you Dee, I find discipline on and around roundabouts appalling. Why, why, why don't they teach this in driving lessons?? Or do they, and then it's abandoned?? I'm convinced that the newish 'basket' roundabout has a huge problem in that drivers coming up from Paphos assume they have the righ...

Absolutely dreadful. Cyprus should hang its head in shame. I fear that won't happen though.

South Herefordshire fox Hunt

https://www.league.org.uk/news/fox-cubs-thrown-alive-to-hunting-hounds The master of this fox hunting team is shown in his true glory. Not alone methinks. Whatever ones views on fox hunting, there is absolutely no justification for cruelty on this scale. I was pretty disgusted at his punishment. Wou...

Apologies if any reference has been posted elsewhere, haven't seen it, But just wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to all those veterans in the news today, so many of whom made their way over to France for the commemorations, all in their 90th years!

Re: Where to take lost dog?

Such super rescue stories here, well done lovely people :)

So sorry to hear about your dogs V, such a caring person, but we can't predict the lives of our animals sadly. Rainbow Bridge keeps me going when I lose a cat!
