I'm interested to find out what expats who don't work (retired), do with their time in Cyprus. Weve been to all the major cities, well known beaches, walk miles most days, go out a few times in the evenings to our local bar, go for drives to discover things off the beaten track, have a My Private Network TV link, et al. All our English friends have left and returned to UK! We're not very sporty, but my other half does a bit of fishing. We feed stray cats on the local beaches. Now that the kiosks have shut for winter, the cats are not being fed tit bits. There are no local charities close by. If there were, I'd want to help. Spend a lot of time online but there is something missing. Any ideas would be appreciated. :)
Arriving back in cyprus in the next few weeks (Paphos area). Walking football/basketball seems to be getting very popular in uk. Wondering if any seniors interested in kicking a ball again and getting some exercise and enjoyment. Just an idea.............. By the way apart from dog walking I have done no exercise in years and am approaching 70 rather rapidly!
Have you got what it takes to be a Zinger? Music is the great uniter, an incredible force, something that people who differ on everything and anything else, can have in common. Never has truer words been quoted as the above and it certainly forms the ethos of the Contemporary Rock Choir, The Paphos Zingers. With 40 members ranging from ages 15 to 70 plus, you can ask any Zinger why they are in this group and everyone would say they love to sing. Why do we love it? You don't need therapy for anything if you sing from your heart. Hans Christian Anderson said, "Where words fail, music speaks. " The Zingers have been established for over 3 years and their primary aim is to raise much needed funds for their chosen charity Cancer Patients Support Group. In 2013 we made a pledge on Rock FM to smash our 2012 target of over 7,000 euro and aim for 10,000, by October we did it and with one big fund raising event still to go we were well over our target at 11,500. We are passionate about our singing and this is reflected in our performances. All members give their time and expenses freely and with a good heart. The key word to becoming a Zinger and joining this "family" is commitment. We rehearse every Monday at Marathounda village hall at 6.30, rehearsals often extend to Tuesday's when we have our own performances coming up. We are always on the lookout for new members of all ages, we have a healthy membership of men but we would welcome more and we are especially delighted to welcome some younger members, this gives us flexibility in our repertoire. You will never see the Zingers with their lyric sheets, we like to engage with our audience so there is commitment to learning all our songs and a little movement, (nothing too strenuous.) if you think you have got what it takes to become a Zinger, call our membership Secretary Irene for an informal, (and very friendly) chat. You will be invited to come along to our rehearsals for two weeks as a guest to see if it is what you want. We will provide the relevant music and lyrics, you will meet the rest of the group and then you can decide to become a member. January is a great time to join us as we prepare for our new shows in 2014. We will all be at the same level so you won't feel you have to catch up with the group. There are no auditions but we have a the best voice coach in Cyprus, Melanie Ballard, and she can determine which section you would be best suited to. Being a Zinger is not just a great and inexpensive hobby, it actually becomes a way of life, in truth it takes over your life, this is how passionate we all are. We have been nominated for the Paphos Hearts of Gold award for two consecutive years, something we are very proud of. So if you think you would enjoy singing in a large friendly group call now, as Robert Fripp once said, " Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence." How fitting, we all enjoy our wine too. (But not before a performance!!) Call Irene, (our friendly Geordie Membership Secretary, Pet.) on 97718532.

I have friends coming to visit for Christmas with their two teenage children. The children want to know if it is possible to play tennis anywhere in Larnaca without being a member of a club, or if there is a hotel with courts that allows non-residents to use them. They don't mind paying a temporary membership or use fee, but everytime I search for information I keep seeing the Larnaca Tennis Club, which I guess you have to join of to use, and (I am also guessing) that is not straightforward for people visiong for 10 days. Any suggestions?
