Looking for at least 2 more Bridge Players to make a foursome NE area (Crete)

Or perhaps two who can play Partner Whist, we could teach you the rules of Bridge, very much the same, major difference is the "Bidding"

I am willing to bet my pension that expat pensioners save the government a fortune in benefits,

Bus passes, TV licence, top ups etc etc.

But they will not take those into account.

I do not understand why so many in the Forum are concerned re the bedroom charge for Council Houses in the UK. 99% of members who entered opinions live in Crete. So why are you all so concerned?.

There is still no English version, Warwick - there is an English "front page" where you log in, and then it reverts to Greek. I beg to differ. I have been using the Eurobank on line for 3 years now. It is all in English including error messages. Much better than some of the UK on line Bank...

My advise is to NOT use any of the British builders on the Island.

Use a Greek Company.

I know of many folk who regret using a UK Builder as we also regret. Using a Greek company to correct all the snagging.
