Re: The Will of the People

[ UK fishing fleets decimated over the last few decads by EU quotas............. The English inshore fishing fleet had decreased for a simple reason. Most of the UK fishing quota has been sold. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jun/11/brexit-uk-fishermen-fishing-industry-quotas-uk-gove...

Just arrived

It's been a long time since I've posted anything and that was mainly to get the benefit of the collective wisdom. Well, we've only gone it ain't we? Little place in the far East bought and I'm sitting here wondering what the hell I've done :D Still waiting for the dogs and furniture to arrive so a l...

Re: Airguns

Thanks for the info everyone.
I mainly need to source pellets without resorting to the UK.
In case anyone is worried, I don't hunt anymore and this is just tin can shooting in the back garden.

Not just in rural areas, the town of Glastonbury now doesn't have a single branch of any bank.

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

How would this apply if you are relatively new resident and not entitled to a 5 year blue certificate or applying under S1 for the first time?

Importing vintage vehicles

Does anyone have experience of importing vintage motorbikes.

We have two old Brit bikes that we would like to bring with us but not if the cost is prohibitive.

Of course if the Greek tax is based on "price when new" then we wont be liable for much :D

English speaking accountant

Could anyone help me with finding a good English speaking accountant in the Makry Gialos / Ierapetra area?
I've tried searching on the forum but most people appear to be around Chania.
