The winter work party program continues on Saturday 13 April. We will meet at 09.45 at the Horeftra road junction (Milies-Neochori-Tsagarada) and work until 14.00 on the old kalderimi to Propan (Kalamaki).

Take with you a hand tool and a pair of garden gloves and join us restoring the old kalderimi/footpath network!

Social event - Lafkos Plant Fair - 21/04/19

The 12th Plant Fair and Bazaar will be held in the square at Lafkos on 21 April 2019 from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm.

We will participate in this local event, with a stand to promote membership and sell donated plants, cakes, jams etc., with funds raised on this stand being retained by the Friends of the Kalderimi.

Any donations from our supporters for our stand would be very welcome.  Please bring these with you to the Fair from 10 am onwards.

In addition, we are asking for volunteers to help man our stand at the fair itself.  If you are able to help with this, please contact Julie Carpenter by email: j.carpenter@efc.co.uk

Organised walk - 14/04/19

Circular walk: Milina - Mavri Petra - Milina

We will meet at the Church in Milina at 11:00.

The route is smooth and in good condition and the walk will take about two hours.

The first part of the route leads to the hills where you will have a nice view of the Pagasitikos.  Next we will walk alongside the coast overlooking Mavri Petra to Alatas Island and Agios Andreas.  Finally we will return to Milina following a route through the olive groves.

We will eat at Argo Taverna at the beach in Milina.  The food will cost 12€ per person with drinks to be paid for separately.

PLEASE NOTE: If the walk is cancelled at short notice due to the weather, then anyone who has booked to eat should please turn up for the meal as the taverna is catering specially for us and so we will be charged for all the meals we order.

Please confirm before 19:00 on Friday if you will be eating.  Please click here to confirm by email that you are eating and the number of people in your group.  This will send an automatic email to us and you will receive confirmation from us that we have received your reservation for lunch.

PLEASE NOTE: The taverna will not be able to cater for additional diners on the day. If you have not confirmed by 19:00 on Friday that you will be joining us, you will need to make your own arrangements for food elsewhere.  Please do not arrive on Sunday and ask us to include you for food if you have not confirmed you are coming, we will not be able to include you.

If you take part in a Friends of the Kalderimi walk or event you do so entirely at your own risk and neither the Friends of the Kalderimi

nor the organisers or leaders of the walk or event are in any way responsible for the safety of those taking part.
