Water. Water?Where: As you are all very aware we have huge problems with our water again. Having spoken to the relevant authority!!!!!!!!!!! the situation is quite serious. The underground water reservoir that feeds us (Lania) & another 30 villages is virtually empty. Apesia apparently hasn’t had water for a week now. Of course we can’t expect help from District because now that the towns have their desalinated supply they are not going to worry about us up the mountains.

However, there is a ray of sunshine or even a trickle of water on the horizon. An arrangement has been made with Trimiklini (which has an additional borehole of it’s own) to supply Lania with a quantity of water so that by tomorrow (theoretically) we will have sufficient supply for our needs. At present, Lower Lania is without water till apprx 6pm today.
REMEMBER please, I’m just passing on information, delay shooting me till I’ve had a wash at least.

→→→WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW though, is that allocation of water supply to every community is based on the NUMBER OF REGISTERED VOTERS FOR THAT COMMUNITY & not on the number of people living within it. The number of voters for Lania is way below that of residents. In other words you want to register asap. In fact, having looked up the relevant law concerning electoral matters you are required by law as residents to register for voting!!.

I have spoken to the Citizen’s Assistance Bureau & you will need the appropriate form (which they have & I can get for you), a certification of your signature by the Mukhtar (which I believe is part of the form), Alien’s document or Cypriot ID card & passport, Photos will be taken on the spot at the CAB.

WATER SAVING: Dear Water Consumer, Because of the limited rainfall the water reserves in our country’s dams are in very low levels according to the last statistic results. As a result, the implementation of measures in order to save water is very crucial, especially during the summer period. Saving water measures: 1. Taps: Check your indoor water using appliances and devices for leaks. 2. Toilets: Install a dual flush toilet. In older models insert a plastic bottle full of sand in the cistern. 3. Brushing your teeth: turn the tap off while brushing your teeth. 4. Bath: Take a shorter shower instead. Use a bucket to collect cold water while waiting for hot water. 5. Washing dishes and clothes: Wait for a full load before using the washing machine or the dishwasher. 6. General cleaning: Use a broom and mob for cleaning verandas instead of a hosepipe. We are looking forward for your mutual cooperation for the correct use of water. From Lania Community Council. Posted 02/07/2014

ROBBERIES IN THE COMMANDARIA AREA: It would appear that properties empty/holiday homes in KOUKA, PERA PEDI, SYLIKOU and ALASSA have been targeted in this last bout of thieving and there is a need to nail this gang.

"
They are reported to use a small lorry but nobody is quite sure. Certainly a vehicle... We all in KOURIS Valley need to be alert to those casing the joint!

Poison

Dog Poisonings being investigated. A kindly warning to our animal loving readers to be extra vigilant in a bid to keep our furry friends safe from harm.

Unfortunately, as well as being reported in the Cyprus Mail, we've also been made aware from our local readers that animal poisonings appear to be on the rise. If ingested by your animal, seek immediate veterinary help and inform the local authorities. For more information, check out facebook page "‘Cyprus Poison Altert – Skippy Kit". Posted 14/03/2013.

Defibrillators in the Mountains....Community Spirit. DEFIBRILLATORS are for treating heart attack victims as a First Aid and are used widely in EU. You will find them on aircraft, in supermarkets and in village communities. They Are easy to use and work. If you are interested in helping SYLIKOU get one ie. fundraising etc, and/or have some training, let us know...

First Aid/First Response Training is vital, especially if you live a long distance from a hospital. An accident can happen anywhere, any time; at home, in the pool; in the street or a car. If professional medical response takes over half an hour to reach your community, you need to take action to help yourselves when accidents or heart problems strike. Tailor-made First Response courses can be delivered to your community in your village. For example, Kallepeia in the hills outside Paphos; a group of villagers here invested in training. They then bought a defibrillation unit, convinced of its efficacy, for their community.

Defibrillators save lives – We can be shown how to purchase one and how, with First Response Training, we can operate one to save lives. A maximum of 12 delegates can be accommodated per training session. Note: This was first put to SYLKOU Village council in 2003 and offers of help were made to pay for one... In about 2008/9 a villager died one Sunday... who might have benefitted. POSTED 06/03/2013.

DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE BANKS - 17/11/2009 *** First one will be held on the 27th of November in Paphos *** Many buyers in Cyprus have been deceived into buying properties by developers who have withheld the vital fact that there are mortgages on the land on which these properties are built.

EARTHQUAKE ROCKS THE KOURIS!At 0930 hours on Tuesday 25th August, 30 km underneath the Kouris valley, a 4.7 Richter scale earthquake moved my Kouris Magpie (KM) nest and the earth (for some of the younger the residents...)

A noise like a cement truck under load on a hill was followed by a “Dead Cat Bounce” in the vertical plane. Young children, obviously well trained, dived under tables, adults ran out of houses and some stayed in the shower or under the house lintels. The few tourists this year just continued drinking their wine as life returned to normal, whatever that is for the residents of the valley....and enjoyed another day in the lovely, moving, Kouris Valley.. Kouris Magpie.

LANIA ART CLUB MEETING 27 MAY 2009. A group of enthusiastic artists met at the Lania Museum for a lively discussion centered on the concept of making Lania village more attractive. After the previous meeting, when it was decided to paint some of the gates and doors, the meeting was told that this had almost been completed, along with the fish art installation near the Frisi. Plans are well underway for a road sign to direct visitors to the village, together with a house art installation to attract attention. Many people have volunteered to do the painting and generally help with the upgrading of the visual aspect of the village centre. Work has started on the bridge and river near the Park and this should look much better soon. New gardens next to the church have also been started.

The meeting discussed various new ideas to improve the village. Suggestions were sought on how to disguise and/or relocate the large green garbage bins to make them a little less unsightly. Once again the unfortunate state of Doros Tavern and the land opposite, with its derelict machinery causing such an eyesore, came up but with no clear direction emerging on how to improve the situation there.  Old photographs of cars and trucks were shown to the meeting with the suggestion that they could be enlarged and displayed in the village just like the huge group photo near Platanos Café which looks so well. It was felt that a small collection of old vehicles located in the large car park at the entrance to the village would attract attention of visitors and maybe encourage them to stop and park there rather than in the village centre. With this being the artiste’s village of course these would not be ordinary displays but rather more artistic and maybe even a little humorous! Artistic benches were also discussed with a suggestion that some really unusual ones could form a kind of Sculpture Park in Lania Park whilst more traditional ones, with poems attached, could be sited in the village centre.

The question of how to attract discerning visitors as part of a sustainable tourist policy was discussed at length. Two main suggestions came up. It was felt that if a series of new, high quality postcards depicting the improvements in Lania could be produced and distributed island wide, they may induce individual tourists to take a closer look at the village. Special edition postcards and leaflets could also be produced for distribution in the village itself. Since most of the visitors from overseas travel by rental car, it was agreed that the concept of advertising on car rental company maps would be explored. It was noted that in the UK, the Waitrose supermarket in-house magazine was due to publish a piece on the village and this could encourage sustainable tourism in Lania. The meeting closed with a feeling of great optimism.

ART FOR LANIA 9/4/09. At a recent meeting of the Public Artworks Group in Lania, the assembled local artists, together with Muhktar Andreas Rousias, came up with a large number of exciting ideas on how to improve the visual aspect of the traditional village, known everywhere as ‘the artistes village’.

Some ideas are almost ready for implantation, including a huge sepia photograph to be erected on the wall adjacent to Platanos Café. The photograph was originally taken in 1894 on the occasion of the completion of the bridge near the Royal Oak, on the main road. The picture shows a large group of villagers, most of whom have descendants still living in Lania today. Easter decorations are planned on the garden and orange grove next to the Frisi. It is also proposed to hang sliver fish across a pedestrian lane, repaint old doors as well as install benches; some with poems attached, and fit artful litter bins.

The main issue at this meeting was signage; as it is felt that it is vital to get this right on order to attract moderate numbers of discerning visitors to the village. Three suggestions were made. Firstly, it was felt that the direction sign on the main road was not clearly visible, due to various illegal commercial sings obscuring the view and generally confusing the eye. Secondly, it was agreed by the majority that with so many attractions in Lania a brown sign with internationally recognised symbols listing museum, dining, accommodation, and galleries etc would be most appropriate. However, some thought that separate signs for individual businesses would be better, though these are thought to possibly contravene local planning laws. Finally, all agreed that some type of large scale art installation near the main turning for Lania would be an effective way of attracting attention to the village. An installation inspired by the traditional houses of Lania is planned.

Girogos Sykas

MUHKTAR RESIGNS - WEBSITE RE-LAUNCHED. At a packed meeting in Lania Tavern on Friday 5 December 2008 the President of Lania Community Council, Giorgos N. Sykas, made his resignation speech. He had served the village for over 30 years and overseen many changes.
 
The meeting continued with a presentation of the re-launched website: www.lania.org.cy which aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to the village and its amenities. On the home page the President writes: the amazing climate of Lania and its amazing natural beauty in combination with its traditional buildings, its narrow slab-paved roads and alleys that are filled with numerous flowers looked after by the inhabitants offer an exquisite sight. The tasteful wines and Zivania produced locally and the hospitality of the inhabitants will make you remember your visit to our community for a long time. We will be expecting you in our lovely village, where you will be treated with great hospitality and have a wonderful time.
 
The meeting concluded with the usual issues over water cuts and crumbling roads and all the typical matters that the incoming Muhktar will no doubt have to deal with in due course.

ON-LINE PETITION TO PROTECT PEOPLES' PROPERTY RIGHTS
Yesterday saw the launch of an on-line petition asking the UK Prime Minister to exert pressure on the Cyprus Government to protect peoples’ property rights.

Many developers hold onto Title Deeds of buyers’ homes using the land on which the build to raise mortgages. If a developer collapses the bank has the legal right to sell the mortgaged property to recover the debt. People who have bought property built on this land may lose their homes – even though they may have paid in full and may have been living in it for many years.
 
There are around 100,000 properties without Title Deeds, many of whose buyers may face the very real threat of losing their homes. Buyers, both Cypriot and non-Cypriot are demanding that the Cyprus government puts guarantees in place, similar to those recently announced for bank deposits.
 
The petition reads:
 
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to exert pressure on the Government of Cyprus to protect property rights in Cyprus in compliance with Article 17 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
 
Cyprus is mis-described as having a property registration and ownership system based on the British Legal System. In fact it’s based on archaic Turkish law which allows the removal property ownership rights from both Cyrus and foreign nationals. It works like this: The developer builds a property, sells it, is paid in full and releases the property without providing final title deeds. They are only issued by the local authority if the developer applies for completion and has met all of the planning requirements for the project. Until they are issued the developer can use the land as collateral for further loans!
 
The Cyprus Land Registry figures show there are 29,949 transfers of Title Deeds to foreigners still pending and are only being issued at the rate of 1,600 a year! The numbers of Cypriots waiting for title deeds dwarfs that of the foreigners.
 
Add your name now by visiting the ‘Title Deed Petition’ on the official website of the UK Prime Minister’s Office at http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/TitleDeedsCyprus/ Thank You.

CHEAP PHONE CALLS
You may be already well aware about 1018 calls from Cyprus, prefixing your number with 1018 routes the call over the Internet via VoiP (Voice over Internet Protocol) and is usually about half the standard direct dial call cost.

It is worth noting that after dialling the number using 1018 that sometimes you have to be patient and wait some time for the ringing tone to activate as your call may be routed very deviously!!

You may find this list handy to stick by the phone, for those who don't know about the 1018 service all you do when calling FROM A FIXED line phone to either a FIXED or MOBILE PHONE (rates vary) is to dial 1018 in front of the overseas number, e.g. to call the UK you would dial 10180044-area code-local number (leaving out the area code 0 as usual)

FLU JABS. Just a reminder that it is getting towards the 'flu season and that you can drop in and get a flu jab (administered by the Pharmacist) at most of the pharmacies on the Island without requiring a visit to your doctor - which is considerably more expensive! At local pharmacies in Limassol the price is around €7 and can vary a bit. In the UK the medical authorities recommend the flu inoculation for everyone over 60 with it becoming increasingly more important the older you become.

PHILOSOPHY AND NEW LIBRARY IN LANIA. The popular philosophic chats shall this year be taking place in the lovely room above the Olive Mill on Wednesdays at the usual time of 10.15am.

NEW SHUTTLE BUS LIMASSOL - LARNACA AIRPORT.

The service takes 1 hour from Limassol to Larnaca. The schedule is approximately hourly starting at 0445 hours from LIMASSOL to LARNACA and last bus at midnight. From LARNACA to LIMASSOL, first bus 0400 hours, last bus 0130 hours.

The Limassol bus collects/drops people from close to the church at the Polemedia/Troodos roundabout - very convenient for the mountain folk.  Get someone to drop you off there and you’re ready to go, and arrange for them to pick you up on your return. 

Why not give it a try next time you fly?  It costs about €5 per journey.

It is a move to back an MP legislation proposal due to come up soon.

Alternatively you can complete the form, that is in Greek and English, by clicking here.and sending it to greenparty@cytanet.com.cy direct.

LANIA GETS BROADBAND. Internet users in Lania, Doros and elsewhere have become increasingly frustrated as surrounding villages, including Trimiklini and Sylikou, get a
Broadband internet service whilst others are by-passed. Cytanet have been unable to offer an explanation for this and will not give any idea of when, or even if, broadband will arrive in all the mountain villages.

City Cell Communications has come to the rescue with a satellite-based service that beams wireless broadband direct to your home without the need for a phone line. They have been supplying Paphos district for two years and now supply Lania and surrounding areas from a satellite installation in Platres. Connection speeds vary considerably from 74Kbps – 460Kbps upload and from 206Kbps – 1264 Kbps download, with no limit on the amount you can up or download. The cost is E340 for installation and E43 per month subscription. Already, a few local users are enjoying relatively high speed and reasonably reliable internet access via City Cell.

City Cell can be contacted at their shop at 114A Gladstonos Street, Limassol. Tel: 25371000, 99797976. Email: info@citycell.tv. www.citycell.tv.

Cats

CATSNIP COMES TO LANIA - For centuries cats have been an integral part of life in Cyprus. In fact, the first evidence of cat ownership in Cyprus dates back to 7500 BC. Following this tradition, we, in Lania, are blessed with beautiful and generally very healthy domestic and feral cats. Both the residents and visitors obtain great pleasure from their company, but here’s the rub – there are just too many feral cats in Lania.

Did you know that one female produces on average 6 female and 6 male offspring each year. By year 5 this will have increased the population to a total of approximately 33,613 cats. Of course, even with the natural illness and mortality rate, this is just far too many for a small village to support! In the past, means have been found to cull the feral population - many of these methods are just not acceptable, and an alternative has to be found.

Cat Population Growth

Catsnip was established by two ladies in Limassol approximately 18 months ago. Already, Catsnip has neutered 800 cats of the estimated 11,000 feral cats
in Limassol. We are fortunate in that they have allowed us to use their name, their expertise and contacts to set up a ‘branch’ here in Lania.

We have just started to raise funds to neuter our feral cats in the village. Selected cats will be caught, photographed and their details recorded. They
will be neutered by a fully qualified veterinary surgeon, cared for whilst recovering and then released back into the cat community. In this way, we hope to control the feral cat population and avoid other more desperate measures being used.

We are happy to report that a very successful start to the scheme has been made. Enthusiasm is high, and at the Lania Tavern Disco on 29 December, CYP275 was raised from a raffle and auction. Very many thanks to all those who so generously contributed to the Catsnip funds at this event. In addition, other donations have been received, including the sale of Catsnip calendars which has brought the final amount raised to CYP350, at the end of 2007. Thanks to all for making this such a successful start to Lania Catsnip. (Please note that some Calendars are still available at CYP3.50).

We are greatly encouraged by the support from all quarters of Lania and beyond. We hope to hold many fund raising events in the coming year. If you would like to help us by holding a coffee morning, sponsoring a cat, or have ideas that would move things along, please get in touch with Susan or Veronica.

LANIA GETS A MAKEOVER. You can't move for builders trucks in Lania these days as construction workers work hard to restore the village centre. Many of the old houses are being refurbished with plenty of beautiful stonework on view. The narrow lanes are being re-cobbled and certainly add much charm to the place. The old Boys School and the adjacent old Olive Press are undergoing major restoration and should be ready for occupation late in 2008.

DO ALL ROADS REALLY LEAD TO LANIA? At the recent Art Exhibition to draw attention to the new main road and the strong opposition to it by all sectors, rumours abounded, such as: - 4 of the 5 Members of Lania Village Council are against the need for a new road - The Limassol District Officer has launched an Inquiry into reported speculative buying of land along the projected routes - The Village Council is to hold “Open Meetings” of its proceedings to counter the view that it is no longer transparent in its dealings over the new road - Ministers are taking a closer look at the effect of the local opposition to this “wasteful” project in the run- up to the election - Laiki Bank sponsorship of Litter Bins, discarded all over the village roads, is affecting views on their Bank - Key personalities are turning their backs on the village Council in horror. - LRR.

SYLICOU - Rates increase. Rates in Sylicou have just shot up for the second year by a further 25% in addition to the 30% increase last year. Suggestion: should there be a market survey of rates rises? Not the actual rates but the percentage increases.

Reporters have noticed an alarming increase in Commandaria village rates.
Increases of 30% in 2006 and a further 25% this year have been imposed one village. Spending by villages now includes official cars!  Why? Your help is requested to report: the percentage increase in rates in your village, this year (2007). On what basis are rates calculated? The wide rumour is that it is
based on the Chairman of the Village Council's view on how much the
rate payer can pay! What is the nationally agreed rate rise per annum? Is it linked to the rate of inflation? Who controls and verifies the basis? Is it the District Officers? How do rate payers object to a rate rise? To district Officers?
How does one appeal? To the Ombudsman? All suggestions gratefully received. - Kouris Magpie

RATES: The President of Sylikou replies. I am Costas Polis, The Chairman of the Village Council of Sylikou. I am angry with the article written by Kouris Magpie about the rates in Sylikou. It is all
bad. The rates in this village are the best in the Commandaria region. The Council has a car to do the Council business. If residents do not agree their
rates they can complain to the District Officer within 15 days of the rates demand. If anyone has a problem with this system they should call me or Fax, on 25470732. I am always happy to explain and help,
Yours faithfully, Costas Polis, Chairman of the Village Council of Sylikou. 13th November 2007.

TRIMIKLINI - New shops and walls. There are 2 new and exciting shops in Trimiklini. Both shops are on the main road, between the church and the Water Falls Café, on the right coming down the Mountain. A FISH SHOP (Psaragora) and a BAKERY (Fourno). It has been reported by several delighted shoppers that the owner of the FISH SHOP has a big fish store in Limassol as well and he brings fresh fish every day to Trimiklini. The BAKERY is beside the Water Falls Café. They bake great cakes as well. Anyone passing through the village will see workmen crafting many beautiful stone walls all along the main road. Will the pavements be paved next?

Editors Note: in the autimn of 2007 the pavements were indeed completed and very nice it looks too!

NEW MEETS OLD. The centre of Doros Village has been transfomed by the laying of new cobblestones where there was once concrete. Many of the village roads and lanes were disrupted by the laying of new water supply pipe work, which was completed last year with the trenches either concreted or tarmaced. The new stones blend in well with the original and the second phase of the works will see the outer road around the village cobbled. Well done to all involved in this project. - Doros Dave.

APPEAL WaterAid is a charity devoted to providing water and sanitation in the developing world. I have an offer to collect and ship old mobile phones in any condition for recycling, between 3 and 30 pounds for each one will be donated to the charity and just 15 pounds can provide fresh water or sanitation for a family. We all change mobile phones old ones and especially batteries are a potential environmental hazard but equally potentially of value.

So if you have any old mobiles that are looking for a good home (the more in the way of accessories chargers etc the better)please let me know and even more please pass the request on to your friends and contacts in Cyprus contact me as below and I will arrange to collect or leave in a bag for me at the Lania post office or the Taverna.

Membership of the CSRC is open to all service personnel and their families, UKBCs and expatriates. This gives the club a rich diversity of experience and interest that is very noticeable if you listen to the various conversations along the way. The CSRC rambles every second Sunday with an average of around 60 Members taking part and occasionally, can boast a formidable group of 120 walkers. Family
membership is €8.50 per year and each walk you participate in will cost €3 per adult and €1.50 for under 18s. For full details of a Club that takes you to areas few get to see, visit our website at www.csrc.ws
