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.

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.

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire.
