Fancy badminton?: There is a badminton club which meets each Monday in Kalamata from 17:30 to 19:00.  It is free to residents in Greece.  I will be playing there for the next four weeks.  If there’s anyone out there who can play and wants to come along I can offer a lift.  At present it’s mainly Greek people who play there, but they seem very friendly and welcoming.

Urgent appeal from Parea sti Mani: As many of our readers are aware, Parea  Sti Mani has a support function as well which alongside the fantastic work Gaia does, helps individuals and families in our local community  in emergency situations and times of need.  Gaia has been supporting a family in Stoupa for the last 6 months who are going through a particularly tough time. The Stilla family have lived and worked in Stoupa for many years.  One of the daughters had a kidney transplant 10 years ago (donated by her mother). Unfortunately her kidney is failing and she has been in hospital for 6 months in a very serious condition. Her niece was recently involved in a serious motor bike accident and has been in hospital for 3 months in a serious condition. The niece has 3 children all under the age of 6. The family are desperately in need of financial assistance and we are therefore asking members of the community for donations to support them at this awful time. If you would like to make a donation (no matter how small), please out it in an envelope with your name and contact number and drop it in to Patriko Bar in Stoupa for the attention of Christina or Irene. Many thanks for your support (AP 21/4/18)

Message from Ann Sheppard: As Peter and I are returning to the UK to live in a couple of months I'm afraid the April Bazaar we have just had will be the last AB4C bazaar now . I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has supported me over the years the bazaar has been running . All the stall holders and customers who have helped to make it the social event it turned into and of courses to Ilias for letting us use his garden and covered area in the winter . I thank you all , together we have raised money for a charity that is close to mine and many people's hearts - Cancer Research. Can I just say our time here has been a joy , we love all the friends we have made in our sixteen years here and we will hate leaving you all. But we will return!  Ann and Peter  (AP 13/4/18)

Message from Pete Moran in Prosilio: I found a very sweet 2.5 month old puppy abandoned, frightened and hungry last week by the road between Kambos and collar, no ID, no-one in the area...not tied or left to be picked up by family etc. I fed him, always carrying food for the needy!  I just had to pick him up and put him in the dog basket in the back of the car. Took him next day to the vet in Kalamata. He is in good health with just a minor sore on his foot from a fungal infection.Its clearing up nicely.  He has had his inoculations, worming and has a new tick /flea collar all paid for by myself.The vet tells me he will grow to medium size approx 22-25kg...He is good with other dogs, also with cats and is playful and endearing. I have taught him to sit in Greek already, done bite inhibition training on him and also suppression training to halt his boisterous nature! His toilet training is going very well indeed. The problem is we have an 11 year old Welsh Terrier who is tolerant of him and gentle but it's now too much for her at her age now and she's very unhappy. SO...anyone prepared to take him on? I have to admit to having fallen for Paco.. love him to bits...anyone interested in him would need to feel the same as I do about him...I'm willing to support the right person(s) with advice and assistance. .in fact I would like to maintain some contact even if just the odd e mail! We are good friends already. Hoping someone can help...even on a temporary basis. Many thanks. Pete Moran Mobile 6976443663 (AP 27-3-18)
