Food distribution for the Poor

Like you I don't know the name. However, there is a place in Maleme (near Hania) where hot food is delivered three or four times each week and dry goods are brought and distributed to 13 'local families'. I understand it's a sensitive issue (not surprisingly) and has to handled carefully for these f...

Query re tax

We're in a very similar position - two UK state pensions, a very small personal pension and no other monies elsewhere in the world. After twelve years, we've just 'officially' become Greek tax residents and we too will pay tax - approximately 1,500 euros, according to our accountant. I will pay abou...

sewing machine repair

I took the machine to Singer in Hania when the problem started. They found a broken 'gear' and said a) it would be difficult to find a part b) it would be difficult to replace c) offered to sell me a new Singer 'at a good price'. I really don't want a Singer so we found the part on ebay and my husba...

Sewing machine repair

I'm looking for someone to reset the timing on my Elna sewing machine. In the Hania area, but not the Singer shop in the town centre. Any ideas ?

Greek tax residency query

I have just been reading the item on Tax Liability, on the LiC website, for those designated as 'resident in Greece'. Is the collection of 'daily living receipts' still required, and if so does the exception of 'transportation' mean petrol receipts can't be used ?

Temporary internet connection

We don't have wifi where we live, so is there any way a visitor can purchase a temporary internet connection whilst they are here ? I have a dongle but that will be in use.

Threading

Does anyone know of a place where I can find 'eyebrow threading' in or around the Hania area? Either in a salon or even along the Old Harbour where stands offer hair braiding and beading etc.

Zumba classes

I don't know about in the Apokoronus area but there is a studio on the Souda Road where they offer classes. If you are driving from Souda towards Hania, it's on the left-hand side just after the traffic lights for the road to the Mediterranean Agricultural Institute and the AB Supermarket.

Whilst queuing at the Chania hospital O/P reception desk this morning, I noticed that the computer 'screen-saver' behind the tameo was displaying six different denomination Drachma currency notes. They may have been the original design but somehow looked different in that the six portraits did not s...
