But...they take my contact details as they need to get me home if I have excess Ouzo!!
(You would think they know my address by now!!)

 But.... Theresa , Seriously.. I am around Arillas every day and rules are followed and all enjoy.
Even a local , as I am , must not divert from these rules.
... Today I was asked to wear my mask when throwing darts. (The board is inside/under cover)
and of course no complaints from me!

I see many smiling faces , every afternoon, which move easily towards the evening.
You guys are a very lucky lot to be here - and, of course , very wise in picking the right location.
Cheers
Negg

Hi
No checking PLF at Gatwick or Stansted airport  on returning
Our friends said the other day no one was at Gatwick to check
And last night no one at Stansted to check
All the stress to make sure you fill the form out right for the flight home
On the return home you get one thing wrong a gap or full stop it rejects it

So what is PLF for if no one is checking

All this form filling that is required when returning to the UK is just a ploy so that the government can say they are doing something in respect of tracing you if they need to.

As a UK citizen and living in the UK why do they need you to fill in the form

Your Pasport wich they scan contains your information, and when returning they already have the information where you have traveled from.

So there's no need to fill in the form and no need to check a form if your a UK citizen returning home.

Mini B and Harold... Cause you will get here safe and will quickly become chilled thinking twas all a bad dream and you have just woken to the sunshine which will tan you slowly and without fuss.

We all have masks here and you will see a few. We also follow guidance rules and keep a distance but we also appreciate new company and you will feel at ease at all times.

But...... any misbehaviour and you will soon be punished , *An afternoon with Mick, at Tria* bummer!!!

Cheers

Oh Dear!!!

Each morning on arrival at work my 1st job is to log on to our Forum to see the latest news whilst enjoying my 1st coffee of the day.

I then log onto the Corfu Forum which I have been following avidly since the pandemic 1st broke.

If you follow the link it would seem Corfu (& Greece) are now also fully caught up in the second wave of Covid.

    http://www.corfu-forum.com/forum/general-discussion/coronavirus-covid19-local-information-8968/675/

Like everyone I find it difficult to quantify figures to actual events but there definitely seems to be an alarming upsurge in cases and surprisingly less than 8% of these are attributed to tourism!!

Our thoughts are with you - Stay Safe

Neil & Jill
