|An interesting sky over Pedi this morning and the church on the corner of my road is sporting freshly whitewashed walls, ready for a name day celebratioin.|

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are forecast for the whole of Greece for tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday so it looks as though we will have early rain this year. As it has been an exceptionally hot summer it will be quite a relief to break the drought a little earlier than usual. Sunshine, however, will resume from Thursday which is just as well as there is a big wedding at St Nicholas beach this Saturday.
At present we don't have any refugees on Symi but we do have a steady influx of parcels and donations so this is an opportunity to sort things out and do an inventory for the winter so that we can see exactly what we have and what we still need. At present our main requirements are actually monetary in that we need to collect enough money to provide shelter for families and vulnerable people arriving during the winter and also provide them with food if they are stuck on Symi for a few days, waiting for the next boat out. http://www.everyclick.com/solidaritysymi/info is the link for on line donations. You can also find Solidarity Symi on Facebook. We put up regular updates regarding what we need and you will also find our address and contact details there if you want to send parcels or call us.
Have a good weekend.
