Cake and Coffee and a Night at The Hillview

The Pissouri bay cafe was the venue for a cake and coffee afternoon to raise funds in aid of Dr. Yiota Demetriou - The Dancing Queen Foundation. We had a brilliant outcome! 430.75€. Well done to Raya for organizing the event.













As the evenings draw in we made our way over to the Hillview restaurant to see a show by the highly talented Dominc Holmes. The food, as ever, was superb and along with a number of friends we had a lovely night filled with music and laughter.

The Firebirds at Halloween and a walk in the Park.

On a Stormy night we joined a number of friends  and made our way over to the Bonamare bar in Timi to see the Firebirds Rock and Roll show.

As an electrical storm raged outside as the band played a couple of hours of classic rock and roll song. The Bonamare bar was decorated in a Halloween theme and with the flashes of lightening outside this added to the atmosphere.
























Back in the UK, Cari and Jude had a lovely family day out at a local park.

Silly Cow at Emba Theatre

Along with a number of villagers we made our way over to the Stage One Theatre in Emba, which is just outside Paphos, to see a production of "Silly Cow".   Sadly, we were both very disappointed with the play, we thought that it was so slow and tedious that we left after the first act.

Luckily, we found a warm welcome at the Tsiokkas Taverna close by and enjoyed a light meal and a couple of drinks on their patio that overlooks the local church (Panagias Chryseleousis) which was beautifully lit up.
