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.

Asgata village -vs- Army over munitions manoevers

Leave a comment


RESIDENTS of Asgata village, in the Limassol district, were up in arms yesterday on seeing military trucks laden with munitions cut through their community in the early morning hours.

The ordnance was being transported to an army camp near Asgata. It consisted of an unknown quantity of Bofors 50 mm anti-aircraft shells.

The National Guard said later that the trucks had planned to bypass the village using byroads, but as these were closed the vehicles had to double back and cross the village’s main street on their way to the camp – ruining the military’s incognito operation.

Local residents quickly figured out what was happening; they rushed to the nearby army camp, blocking its entrance to stop the trucks from offloading their cargo there.

No disturbances occurred, although the standoff at the camp’s entrance lasted several hours. Read more on Cyprus-Mail
