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.

Looking as though there'll be a brief heatwave on Kef with temperatures as high as 30C tomorrow and Saturday, dropping down to low to mid twenties from Sunday.

Defra warning to beekeepers as Asian hornets spotted in Rayleigh in Essex

Members of the public are being told to be on their guard after Asian hornets were spotted in the UK.

The insects - a predator to honey bees - have been seen in the Rayleigh area of Essex, the Department for Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said.

Beekeepers and the general public have now been asked to remain vigilant, as the National Bee Unit begins work to detect further Asian hornets.

Asian hornets prey on native honey bees and can damage the ecological role they play as well as disrupting commercial beekeeping.

The Asian hornet is smaller than the native hornet in Britain and poses no greater risk to human health than native wasps and hornets.

The insects – not to be confused with Asian giant hornets – are generally only aggressive towards people when they perceive a threat to their nest.
