Kef fire risk 18/09/23: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £0.8845 GBP
1 €UR = $1.0978 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1306 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9109 €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.

Nine purple bins for clothes recycling now situated around Kef & Ithaka with one in Poros and one in Argostoli. Donated clothes should be folded, placed in a plastic bag and posted in the box.

Residents of Elios-Pronnoi, Poros and Skala in particular, are increasingly concerned about the lack of healthcare in the area, exacerbated by the involuntary transfer of two doctors from Sami Medical Centre. They refer to the number of summer visitors to the area and are calling for:

1. The qualified General Practitioner, resident of Poros, return to her organic position at the Skala Regional Clinic to cover and serve the area; Also to return to her duties, at the Sami Health Center, exactly as she was before the relevant decision of the 6th Health Department Commander;
2. To fill the vacancies in the Multipurpose Regional Clinic of Skala as well as in the Regional Clinics of Poros and Hionata;
3. That the creation and operation of the Multipurpose Regional Clinic of Skala be made a top priority for the region and that all the competent authorities proceed, exactly as provided by the legislation;
4. To staff all the primary and secondary health structures of our prefecture with the necessary medical personnel.

Signed by 260 residents.

All well and good but worth noting that elections are ahead.
