Pissouri fitness's New home, The TotallyRetro show and early rains

This week Pissouri Fitness moved into its new home, after being forced out of the Communal amphitheater, the new gym set up is in the underground car park at the Pissourianna hotel. Head fitness instructor, Stu Burling, has done a sterling job getting the facility ready for the members.

The Pissouri amphitheater was the venue for the song and dance show " The Totally Retro show". Matthew Edmondson and his troupe entertained the crowd for over 2 hours with a variety of tunes.

The first "Post Summer" rains arrived in Pissouri on Saturday morning, it was quite surprising to see rain arrive so in early September.

A trip to Kolios Winery

The PRA organised a visit to the Kolios winery, the coach left Pissouri at lunch time and made its way up to the Village of Statos Ayios Fotios which lies in the Paphos region of Cyprus.
The first order of the day was the wine tasting, we tried a variety of wines including White, Rose and Reds. We then went on a short tour of the winery which was very informative. The winery uses no irrigation on the vines, it just relies on the Winter rains.

We then sat down for a lovely Meze lunch washed down with a few glasses of wine.
