Re: We should see seaweed as a ???blessing not a curse?????

In Guernsey, seaweed (or vraic as it is known there) has been collected for hundreds of years to use as fertiliser on the fields.

Re: Pool back wash and waste water

My backwash water goes into a large white plastic tank and is pumped from there up to smaller barrels more conveniently located for filling watering cans so I can readily water my potted plants, by which time any chlorine has long dissipated.

The solution is quite simple really, guys. Grow a beard. A bit of face fuzz will save you hours and some pennies over the course of a year. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Re: Private Health/ GESY

Re: Swimming pool handrail

Mine sits in the sun pretty much from sunrise to sunset. My friend's little 4 year old granddaughter uses it quite happily so it can only be warm to her touch, not hot.

Re: Bank of Cyprus - unknown payment

When my late husband and I had a Hellenic account for emergency use (opened after the BofC new accounting system fiasco), he used his card occasionally - and I didn't. His card was renewed automatically - and mine wasn't. We were told by a helpful bank assistant that this was because I hadn't used i...

Re: Sit Bone Pain

My late husband had a slightly different problem, but I suspect the solution may be the same. He fell and badly bruised his tail bone, which made sitting anything between uncomfortable and painful. The solution was to use a ring shaped pillow, so the painful area was effectively suspended rather tha...

As far as I can recall, BofC have always charged their customers for the privilege of holding one of their debit cards. At least it is a fixed fee, described in their list of charges (available on line), unlike when I used to also have a village Co-op account - the card fee changed each year in acco...

Re: Bank transfer

As far as I am aware, you do not need to live in Cyprus to have a bank account here. If you don't have internet banking, are all your bank statements posted to your address in Isle of Man? Sorry I can't help with any information on the Pegeia branch of Hellenic. You could always phone the contact nu...
