October 10th, 2016|From the Studio|Comments Off on Eléa Estate – End Of Summer Party – Friday 14th October 2016

In addition to being a wonderful golf resort, the restaurant at Eléa Estate (on the way to Paphos airport) is wonderful place to enjoy whether you are a golfer or not.

Elea LobbySally Sammons is the Event Manager and works very hard to create brilliant events throughout the year in the restaurant and on the huge restaurant terrace.

If you’ve never been, this Friday is a great chance to enjoy the Eléa Estate “End Of Summer Party”. The theme this year is “Dancing in Colour”. The idea is for everyone to wear bright summer outfits, wine, dine and enjoy some brilliant live music throughout the evening.

There’s live music throughout the evening from Kirsty Dewar, Aimie Flack and the brilliant “Dutch Pete” will round off the party, performing summer hits you know and love, so you can dance the night away in style! There’s even a suprise act too (we know what it is but we can’t possibly say!).

The party starts this Friday at 7pm (October 14th 2017). 

Tickets are €45 per person and the ticket price includes:

  • Bubbles on arrival
  • Starter platters
  • Sumptuous buffet
  • Fresh fruit and cheese platters
  • A “candy bar” from Love Island Cakes.

Give it a go because it won’t be long before those chilly evenings are finally here.

Event is open to none members, residents, holidaymakers – in fact anyone up for a great night out.

Aphrodite’s Portrait On The Beach

July 25th, 2016|From the Studio|Comments Off on Aphrodite’s Portrait On The Beach

How amazing and stunning is this? A portrait of Aphrodite, (The Goddess Of Love) created entirely out of stones on beech next to the Anassa Hotel in Latchi.

First the outline, then perfectly filled with stones… simply wonderful.

The couple behind the project are art teachers Katerina Foukara, and husband Arsentiy Lysenkov.  They worked with some of their students to create this stunning work which will remain on the beach for as long as nature allows!

We applaud everyone involved. Try and make time to go and see it if you can!

BREAKING NEWS: UK PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON TO STEP DOWN BY OCTOBER

Prime Minister David Cameron has just announced he will seek to leave office by October. He spoke to the Queen earlier this morning. He has offered reassurance to Brits abroad that they should not worry as there will be no major changes in the near future.

7.20am UK / 9.20am Cyprus

brexit-800x500All 382 voting regions have now declared. 17,410,742 votes to leave VS 16,141,241 to remain – The leave vote wins by 1,269,501.

The Bank Of England announce they have substantial plans ready to go to protect the pound and they want David Cameron to take time before he makes the UK’s exit from the EU official by enacting article 50 (which he does by writing to the European Union sparking a two year exit window from that point).

7am UK / 9am Cyprus

The pound has fallen to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 — as the markets reacted to the results. Fiona Parsley from Currency Solutions talks to Sunshine Radio…

6am UK / 8am Cyprus

Reactions to today’s news are starting to come through…

“Hurrah for the British! Now it is our turn. Time for a Dutch referendum!” – Geert Wilders, Dutch Freedom Party leader

“Brace yourself for political and financial tumult like little we have ever witnessed. Expect Bank of England to step in” – Robert Peston, ITV News.

“Scotland will seek independence now. Cameron’s legacy will be breaking up two unions. Neither needed to happen.” – JK Rowling

“The dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom” – Nigel Farage

5.40am UK / 7.40am Cyprus

It is expected that a statement from Prime Minister and Governor of Bank of England will be given this morning – needed to limit markets turmoil. Both Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to REMAIN but the overall vote says the UK will leave the European Union

5.10am UK / 7.10am Cyprus

Despite the expected LEAVE win, Scotland clearly voted to remain by a huge majority. Speculation is now rife this will trigger a new referendum in Scotland to see if they now wish to break away from England and Wales.

4.45am UK / 6.45am Cyprus

The BBC have forecast the United Kingdom will leave the European Union – although there are still more votes to be declared, there appears that the remain vote can not win. Reactions to this news will appear here and on air at 90.8FM throughout the morning.
