Based on National Bank of Greece exchange rates.   
Other banks likely to offer rates which may be marginally higher or lower.    
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.   
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g. the
Post Office.   
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".    
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.   
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Mini rope bridges built in Forest of Dean to help dormice

Mini rope bridges have been installed in one of England's ancient forests to help hazel dormice travel safely between treetops.

Two 20m-long bridges have been built over a track in the Forest of Dean.

The rodents' habitats had become disconnected following the removal of diseased ash trees.
