Re: Yokohama Air Con - Help!

Not sure of the type of air con as we don't have a manual but still can't get it to work. We do have other forms of heating so it's not critical & we'll contact the landlord after the holidays to find out more. Many thanks for trying to help. Enjoy your fish, keep posting the pictures & have a happy...

Thanks Max, the batteries are new. Perhaps our air cons can't be used to provide warm air.

Paphos Town Residents

We presently live in a village but we are moving to Pano Paphos. Is it the town hall we have to go to for arranging payment of community & rubbish collection charges?

Re: Accessing Gezy Beneficiary Record

Reesy You don't need to have access to your beneficiary records if you don't want to. It's like your hospital file that most of us used to bring home with us for safe keeping & if you've chosen English as your language you can read everything that has been entered by the doctor, although we were tol...

Wilky, thank you, thank you, thank you.
I was using a website for Gezy from my bookmarks which must have changed & when I used gesy.org.cy everything was there that should be & we are now sorted with validation codes done & access to everything.
Thanks again

Re: first experience visiting GESY doctor

Mr Blobby
Please can you explain in simple language how you find or where you find or the web address of the beneficiary portal? I have got our verification codes but just keep going round & round in circles trying to access our beneficiary record & not getting anywhere.

I thought it was something to do with the photo & I'd been hacked. We were going out to lunch so didn't have time ...
