A day at The Races in Nicosia

This week we went on a coach trip to Nicosia racecourse, around 60 people boarded the coach for the trip to the Island's capital. A private marquee had been arranged for us and a superb buffet was served.

In the horse racing stakes, Lady luck did not smile on us until the final race when Mandy and Rob's horses ended in a photo finish with Mandy's horse winning by a nose.

Dragon Ideal Gardens.

This week Mike and I helped a friend construct a small garden. We cleared weeds, laid a porous membrane and then laid  3 ton of chippings.

We built a water feature and planted a variety of shrubs and trees including a Yucca and banana tree. We now plan to add a water feature to the rock garden.

The Band of the Royal Marines.

The Pissouri amphitheatre was the setting for an evening concert by the Band of the Royal Marines. The band entertained a full house with a variety of music from Verdi to the Beatles.

After the concert we visited the 1911 club with a number of friends for liquid refreshment and to discuss the night's entertainment.
