UK snow: Power and travel disruption across country

Heavy snow has led to power cuts and disrupted air, rail and road travel in many parts of the UK.

The deepest snow recorded was 30cm (12in) in Sennybridge, near Brecon, while High Wycombe saw 17cm.

Snow is forecast to remain in Northern Ireland and Scotland but give way to icy conditions overnight elsewhere. Met Office yellow "be aware" warnings for ice affect England and Wales.

Thanks to all who turned out for the first KATs book and clothes sale, this morning. We raised the grand sum of €158, plus donations of €25. We'd like to especially thank the bakers who produced some delicious cakes and Maaike and Jerry for kindly allowing us to use their premises - it's been a busy weekend for you guys, thanks so much!
The next sale will be on Sunday 7th January 2018.
Have a great Christmas and New Year everyone!

KATs Skala charity shop and the Book Club has a new venue!

With thanks to Jerry and Maaike, we are now operating out of Jerry's Elliniko Restaurant in Katelios, (next to the old school and children's play area along the straight road). We have decided to combine the clothes, household goods etc., with the books on the first and third Sunday of each month (after December), from 11am until 1pm.

The dates for your diaries/calendars are as follows:-
Sunday 10th December
Sunday 7th & 21st January
Sunday 4th & 18th February
Sunday 4th & 18th March

Obviously we will be exceedingly happy to receive any cakes, scones, buns or pastries, in order to help bump up the funds. We look forward to seeing friends old and new in our new premises.

Apologies for the late posting of this event  :doh:

Well done to everyone who organised and helped at the bazaar, the bakers did their usual fantastic job,as well as the family at Dum Spiros in Svoronata, who always support us and lend us their restaurant for the venue. A fantastic 2,365.41 € was raised!

Just waiting to hear from Pat Dolman what the final number of neuters were for this year - 700 was last year's figure, so did we make the thousand, or this space!!
