The best answer is get some good top soil and spread it about. Moved into our current house 5 years ago and first thing was 40 tonnes of soil for the various borders and plots we have. Hard work with a pick, shovel and wheelbarrow but we are now virtually self sufficient in fruit, veg and salad bits...

Hi,

Picked up Pink Slips yesterday from ATE Bank in Kalives and as usual not asked for anything other than passport. No problems so suggest your bank is trying to invent something else. Jobs for the boys/girls.

IKA Book Updates.

The other half has noticed that her IKA book has not been updated this year. In a way at least She has been well and has not needed it. Am I correct in thinking we can get the local KEP office to update it for her as we do not have time to spare waiting in the IKA office in Xania? Your experience in...

Hi, One other point to be aware off is the swimming pool. I have heard of builders who have built pools with the houses and although they have been paid to get the licence they never did so.

The system of claiming back the subsidy from the Government has now ceased for the heating oil suppliers. According to the local garages they now pay the discounted price and add their profit on top when they sell it. It took so long to get the subsidy back that the garages did not like giving the e...
