Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Raising funds for Sirius Dog Sanctuary, Limassol

Help Wez raise funds for Sirius Dog Sanctuary.

Help Wez Thompson (a morning DJ on BFBS Radio 1 in Cyprus) raise funds for Sirius Dog Sanctuary.

Wez Thompson - BFBS Radio 1 Cyprus

He’s just written the first chapter of a kiddies book entitled “Alfie – A Dog’s Tail”.

Alfie is a little dog that Wez found and gave a new home. A short while ago he found another stray dog and took it to Sirius Dog Sanctuary so they could try to find it a home as it just wasn’t possible for him to have 2 dogs.

Sadly, he found the sanctuary had a total lack of space but even so they still agreed to take the little dog. He was given an ID disc and a chain so the little dog could be kept safe in the compound.

He said as he was about to chain the dog up he just felt “this ain’t right” and ended up taking the little dog back home with him and giving Sirius Dog Sanctuary €50 to help with their funding!
Luckily, it all ended happily and the dog was later rehomed as a result of Wez telling his story on his weekday radio show 🙂

So, the rest of the book will initially be published as an eBook but Wez is also hoping to get it published in hard copy too.

If you can help or would like a copy of the first chapter, please contact Wez on his facebook page Wez Thompson BFBS or you can contact him by email:-


Also see Wez’s other book “How To Say Boo To A Goose” – more info on a more recent blog post here.
