Kef fire risk 27/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.9209 GBP
1 €UR = $ 0.9935 USD
£1 GBP = 1.0859 €UR
$1 USD = 1.0065 €UR

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.


Ten day weather forecast for Kefalonia:
This is an overall forecast, due to the mountainous terrain the weather can be very localised.

Today's forecast thunderstorms have (so far) largely by-passed Kefalonia although around 08:00 winds blew bulk refuse bins over in Lixouri and the road was awash in places between Vlakhata and the airport.

Doncaster Sheffield airport to close permanently, despite Liz Truss vowing to protect it

New PM promised to ‘protect this airport and this infrastructure’
https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/doncaster-sheffield-airport-closed-b2175314.html

Be a sad loss if it closes, it's a lovely little airport. Maybe Liz will keep her word and keep it open. Or maybe not.
