Re: No news day tomorrow

Yes, the Mail was published today. Won't be one tomorrow. Maybe there may be one on Sunday....

Re: Weather Warning?

I don't know more than the Weatherunderground forecast, however today, despite the sunshine the winds are very strong in my area (Killi-Kamares). They started off coming from the SE this morning, but have since shifted to NE with a drop in temperature. Winds were forecast up to 60kph, probably in gu...

Re: Tala Square renovations, when will they be finished?

The message says: 'your message contains too few characters'. But that is not true.
What does this mean? How can I post?

Re: Tala Square renovations

Also very little work gets done in Paphos between the 23 Dec until after Epiphany on the 6th Jan, another public holiday..But also we have been having a lot of rain recently, so a number of w...

Re: Where to get ??

Or you could buy a couple of large rugs in the January sales perhaps? It's much nicer to have a carpet to put your feet on in winter as the floor tiles feel so cold! Then the castors won't be a problem...

Re: Good morning to a wet Thursday

The annoying thing about all the rain which we have had is that so far it hasn't filled up the reservoirs as much as I had hoped! On checking the Govt's water storage in the reservours table, the Asprokremnos Dam as of yesterday was 36.5% full. This time last year it was near 70% full! Hopefully whe...

Re: No news day tomorrow

Wallace, I feel as you do. I also enjoy reading the Cyprus Mail and buy it most days. It is a pity that it isn't published every Monday, as Greek newspapers are and on some of the public holidays, excepting the more important ones like Easter, Christmas, and Epiphany. The trade unions are all powerf...

Re: Med Prices are now live

It worked fine for me. I was able to locate the 2 drugs which I have been prescribed , thanks to use of the search facility. Thanks Dominic for providing this. I wondered if the Govt provide a list of non prescription drugs and over the counter medications? This would also be useful, as these can be...

Yet a few hours later when I looked at the forum again, its to find that they have disappeared! Is th...

Re: 3 BRITS arrested in Paphos for drug possession!

According to newspaper reports it is very overcrowded.
There is talk of building a new prison facility or a seperate institution for young offenders. In order to keep them away from more hardened criminals.

Re: Waiting for the sun to come back....

Have just checked the Govt reservoir storage table, as of today the water level at the Asprokremnos Dam is given as 36.1% full. So still a long way to go to fill up. This time last year the same dam was 66% full.

Re: City of Culture 2017

I understood that it was an substantial EU grant of circa €66M which Paphos was awarded when it won the competition to be the European City of Culture which was against Nicosia and Limassol. It is this money which appears to be behind all the projects for improvements to the town and buildings in Pa...

Re: 3 BRITS arrested in Paphos for drug possession!

Yes, but according to what is reported by the local paper the prison is grossly over crowded, and bullying and violent assault by and to some inmates are a problem. There have been a number of suicides among prisoners. Prisoners are crowded into cells, designed for 1 but used for 3 persons, so not a...

Re: 3 BRITS arrested in Paphos for drug possession!

Hear, hear! Hopefully they will be dealt with severely by the court. They deserve it. A long stay in Nicosia Central, which is likely to be far less comfortable that a jail in the UK.

Re: TV Next week

The situation has changed re TV mags! I was surprised to find 'What's on TV' in the mini market in Tala, yesterday morning,. It's the current issue for this week. So there must be more somewhere else. Perhaps in Paps when it reopens.

Paphos, now into being the European City of Culture 2017, is not ready! Lethargic working on the roads in and around the old town 'Ktima Paphos' started late, in March 2016. During the summer very little was done, it was too hot! More effort was applied from Sept- Oct onwards. But, now the winter ra...
