Dog sitting: We are looking for someone to take care of our 2 much-loved, adorable, friendly dogs for about 3 weeks over the Christmas period. Flint is a 10 1/2 year old border terrier who came to Greece with us from England and Megan is a Breton spaniel, approximately 3 years old, found abandoned locally a year ago.
Both dogs are 'house' dogs, very affectionate, well-trained and easy to look after. They love human company and a good walk each day; however, they aren't great with cats (despite the fact we have two!).  If you think you can help us we will of course pay for their care and provide their food for the period. We can be contacted on Home: 27210 74575 Mob: 6980071776 Thanks Les and Jane Neal (AP 6-11-17)

Handbag found: Having read our item on a recent burglary, one of our readers reported that while walking her dog in the olive grove between Stoupa and Ag Nikolaos, she found a handbag with a number of valuable items, but no purse or money.  If you are, or know, anyone who has lost a handbag, please contact Mary    If she does not hear from anyone she will  take the bag to the Police station.(CP4-11-17)

 Looking for a home for 2 domesticated kittens: They were born in our courtyard in June but we cannot look after them through the winter as we are not here.  They are tame and so loving. They deserve a good permanent home and are never happier than when they are sitting on your knee .  They never bite or scratch  and really are  adorable.

Update on the Charity Cricket from Arthur Burgess: I can let you know that the cricket raised a total of 638.99 euros for Gaia. An excellent time was had by all and it was especially pleasing to have two Greek lads playing. Marios and Dennis from The Lefktron Hotel. (AP 9-10-17)
