No new coronavirus cases recorded on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1526
1 USD = € 0.8584

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.

Calls for the end of trail hunting on public land over ‘smokescreen’ fears

Trail hunting must be ended on public land over concerns the practice is being used as a cover for illegal fox hunting, ministers have been told.

Both Labour and the League Against Cruel Sports criticised the government for granting licences ahead of Boxing Day meets.

Their calls came after a senior huntsman was convicted of urging people to use lawful trail hunting, in which a scent is laid for hounds to follow, as a “smokescreen” for illegally hunting foxes.
