Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

Cyprus’ Mari disaster aid “Unacceptable”

Leave a comment



PEOPLE who were injured in the Mari blast last July have been all but abandoned by the state, deputies at the House Defence Committee heard yesterday.

Defence Committee head Giorgos Varnava cited several cases of injured victims or their relatives who were no longer able to work after being caught up in the explosion at the Evengelos Florakis naval base in Mari, which killed 13 people.

DISY MP Andreas Michaelides said 67 people were injured in the blast, 34 of whom were National Guardsmen. Six were members of the police force, seven were employees at the nearby Vassilikos power plant, which was almost destroyed, and 20 were members of the public, he said.

It’s a very sad affair when there is no help for these people.
