Today's bank rate:                
1 GBP = €   1.1439            
1 USD = €   0.8389            
      
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.

Beware if driving around Kef, storms have caused landslides in places, mountain roads liable to subsidence.

Covid: UK start to pandemic worst public health failure ever, MPs say

The UK's failure to do more to stop Covid spreading early in the pandemic was one of the worst ever public health failures, a report by MPs says.

The government approach - backed by its scientists - was to try to manage the situation and in effect achieve herd immunity by infection, it said.

This led to a delay in introducing the first lockdown, costing lives.

But the report by the cross-party group said there had been successes too - in particular the vaccination programme.

Video adds weight to claim Maradona ‘trafficked’ 16-year-old girl and kept her at hotel

New video has surfaced adding weight to claims by a woman that football legend Maradona seduced her when she was 16, gave her drugs and kept her locked in a hotel.

Mavys Alvarez also claims that she was forced to get breast implants after being groomed and flown to Argentina from her native Cuba by Maradona’s associates, without the permission of her parents.

Pensions: Experts say £10,900 annual income needed to retire
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-58883053

That's the figure for existing, for a *moderate* living standard make it £20,800 for a single person / £30,600 for a couple.

For a "comfortable" retirement... read the BBC article.
