Re: bank account after brexit

My Sterling account with Eurobank had been made dormant, when I visited the bank in October, due to lack of use. It was opened again immediately and updated by the staff without production of any documents other than the pass book. I had however made regular use of my Euro account with them so presu...

Re: Experts in pool construction, service and repairs wanted

Not knowing who your current contractors are I would suggest you speak to Andreas and Dimitrios at Piscines Ideales in Kalives. They are very helpful and I am sure will give you good advice.
