Today's bank rate:                
1 GBP = €   1.1426            
1 USD = €   0.8412            
               
Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.                
Other banks likely to offer a different rate 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.

Two foreign nationals reported to be in difficulties off Avythos beach earlier today caused a rescue operation by a Coast Guard boat and a private boat. Swimmers located on the beach but taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

Problems in Poros! The Bailey bridge across the Vohynas remains unfinished, stripped back to its metal substructure. Impossible for vehicles to cross it, pedestrians can risk life and limb on a narrow, temporary(?), wood and rope footbridge. Only way cars can cross is via the ford - which floods during heavy rain and storms. Hey ho, half of Poros is cut off , seemingly because the materials to complete the bridge haven't been delivered.

Dog rescued from a steep gorge in Kremmydi, Elios-Pronnoi, appears to have have got itself tangled up in rough undergrowth and was too weak to free itself. Fortunately, a passer-by heard its yelps and contacted the local Fire Service, which responded promptly and freed it.
