Twelve new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1518
1 USD = € 0.8651

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.

Australian council may ban cats outside if they are not on leads

A council in Australia has voted in favour of plans to effectively ban domestic cats from being outdoors unless they are on a lead.

The planned “cat management” law change in the city of Fremantle, Western Australia, would see cats banned from all public areas such as roads, verges and bushlands.

Councillor Adin Lang, who tabled the proposals that received unanimous support this week, said that the new law would protect wildlife from being hunted by cats and to help prevent cats from being hit by vehicles and attacked by fellow felines.

He told Perth Now: “In the 1970s, dogs would roam our streets and I expect roaming cats will also become a thing of the past.”

Cats are already banned from 12 areas in Fremantle – which include parks, beaches and golf courses – and owners are liable to be fined around £100 for non-compliance.

Shoppers baffled after 'Britain's wonkiest Christmas tree' appears in town centre

Locals are split over the 20ft-high artificial tree which has been erected outside the shopping centre in Evesham, Worcs.

Town centre bosses usually fund a traditional tree but this year opted for a bendy Grinch-style creation.

Residents in the town have expressed mixed views on the wacky S-shaped fir, with some saying they “love it” while others said it looks like it was “broken by the wind”

Zakynthos: Significant problems from the bad weather throughout the island

The bad weather mainly affected the city of Zakynthos, Argassi, Kalamaki and Vasiliko where houses and businesses were flooded, while tons of mud closed the provincial road leading from Argassi to Vasilikos.

Earlier, a landslide occurred in the area of ​​Kryoneri... in many villages the roads were turned into rivers by the huge volumes of water that fell on the island.
