There’s a lot going on in the village at the moment … ‘St George’s Church’ has been undergoing further improvements and now boasts a beautifully clad bell tower. It’s an absolute picture!
The photographic shop next to ‘Yummies’ has been stripped out completely . . maybe Nikos will be able to extend his business next season.
‘Yiannis Papoutsis’ is pressing ahead with the new apartments above his shop (formerly Crusoe’s) and they could well be ready for the 2020 season. If we can find out a name, then we’ll post it here.
‘Valentino’s’ are improving the bathrooms in their Block ‘B’ behind Sophie’s Apartments.
Roda’s famous ‘Palia Skouna’ nightclub, behind Roxannes & Skouna, has now re-opened at weekends. I understand that the people behind it this time are a guy from Cargo Bar in Sidari, and Makis Koursaris, son of Kostas who used to have the horseriding.
We can confirm that Yummies will soon be yummier .... Nikos was hard at it today, looking a bit like Father Christmas covered in white dust, knocking the photographic shop and his creperie into a single unit. There will be a lot more seating in 2020.
We should also point out that our new barber's shop, Straw Hat, has been open through the winter and was having screens fitted outside recently. It all looks very stylish ....
Is our larger-than-life hairdresser Xanthi expanding? No, not her waistline, but her premises! Workers have been busy recently building a canopy in front of her shop and the empty unit next door ... more when we know.
Hi - it would be lovely to see photos of any more new developments in the village if anyone has time. We are still clinging on to the hope of coming in the summer so it would be great to see the village coming back to life.
