Re: Petrol Strimmer

Hi all

Just an update, visited a few shops and eventually bought a Hyundai HBC 260 from Floraplant in Kalyves. :D Staff were very helpful and even put the strimmer together for us.

When I contacted Virus I was told increase my Mbps to 8 and this will cure the problem. Well I am paying for 4 Mbps and at present am getting 0.66 Mb...

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

When we had our villa built in 2014 we were advised by our accountant to make sure we received and forwarded to him the pink slips from the builder to prove that the IKA payments had been paid.
