    I purchased a Silver Ring from your shop on 22/05/14 and I have noticed that a few crystals have come out.

    I have only worn the ring on a couple of occasions.  I am not very pleased as the ring is only a couple of months old.

    Please can you advise.

    Regards,

    Alison Porter

    This movement began in South Africa a few short weeks ago and  has taken off in leaps and bounds with hundred of women and MEN  knitting and crocheting blankets for the poor and needy in SA.The blankets are in memory of the great late Nelson Mandella who strived for 67 years for the freedom of his people to  perform a kindness for someone in need. This will be the KNITWITS way of performing a kindness....as stitch by stitch we will keep our fellow people here in Cyprus warm.

    I ask you to join me and spread the message all over Cyprus  to join this very worthwhile movement  already taken up in Australia and the UK THIS WEEK.. PLEASE friend me on my FB so you can follow the postings. or call me on 99940571.  Thank you so much STEPHANIE PAVLIDES

    67 BLANKETS FOR MADIBA DAY UNDER THE KINDNESS CYPRUS UMBRELLA

    Every home is different in relation to how best it can be protected or the type of prevention methods used to keep criminals out. Some Burglars are opportunistic, they look for easy ways in which they can get into a home, ones that won’t take too long, will make as little noise as possible and won’t arouse suspicion. Homes that look unoccupied and unsecured are more likely to be targeted.

    Are you at home?
    A home that looks empty is far more likely to be targeted by a burglar, so it’s worth making sure your home looks occupied. Do not close your curtains during the daytime; this can suggest your home is empty.
Use automatic timer-switches to turn on a light and perhaps a radio when it goes dark, even if you are just going out for a couple of hours.

    If you’re away for longer periods of time, ensure a neighbour knows you are away.
Mail and flyers in the letterbox are a dead giveaway to the criminal element that the house is empty and you are currently spending time away. Arrange for someone to collect them on a regular basis while you are not there.

    A neighbour may also be able to help you by opening and closing curtains and even parking their car on your driveway. Work with your neighbours to keep an eye on each other’s security. Make sure that you lock all doors and windows and set your burglar alarm if you have one.

    Check the alarm and other related equipment is working correctly on a regular basis.
A note of warning, if you have informed your insurance company that you have an alarm fitted and they give you a discount for having it: should your home be the subject of a burglary and the alarm fails to go off because it is defective in some way, your insurance company will most likely not pay out.

    Once you inform them that you have an alarm, a clause in the policy normally renders the policy useless if the alarm does not work correctly when an offence is committed.
Make sure all the PIR batteries and backup alarm batteries are checked monthly and changed if required.
When you go out at night, be aware of your surroundings. When you leave your home check your street for any unusual cars, or people hanging around the area and take note of anything suspicious.

    The optimum time for an offence to take place is without a doubt 18.00 to 23.30. It is firmly believed that criminals drive around quiet areas of towns and villages watching for people leaving their homes to go out to dinner. Then, having given them time to leave the area or possibly having followed them to a restaurant, they will try their luck at the house they have just seen the people leave.

    Home Security Advice – Secure your home

  • 19/12/2013 - by AKME Securitas

    Every home is different in relation to how best it can be protected or the type of prevention methods used to keep criminals out. Some burglars are opportunistic, they look for easy ways in which they can get into a home, ones that won’t take too long, will make as little noise as possible and won’t arouse suspicion. Homes that look unoccupied and unsecured are more likely to be targeted.

    Garages and Garden Sheds
    Ensure all your external sheds etc. have secure locks and are locked up when you go out for the evening or away for periods of time. Criminals prefer not to carry anything with them that might raise suspicion should they be stopped by the police. They will look for items they can use in the gardens of premises that they are going to try to enter. Spades, screwdrivers and any tools they can lay their hands on will be used, so lock them all away.  If you have to leave ladders on view, secure them safely to a solid wall with adequate security chains and locks.

    Doors, Windows and Locks
    Make sure doors are solid enough and can’t be easily kicked in.
The aluminium front doors used on many developments and villas in Cyprus are not secure at all. The fitting is normally poor, leaving room for movement in the frame fitting which gives the criminal an easy method of entry to premises. They are also invariably fitted with cheap euro locks which are very susceptible to the lock snapping method of entry. Change your locks to the anti-snap locks now available here in Cyprus.

    Patio doors and windows also are an easy method of entry due to what were once very poor fitting standards that allowed a lot of movement in the frame. Additional locks are a must. Existing patio doors can be fitted with additional security bolts to stop lifting or forced entry. The pin-type locks which secure one door to the other at the centre are very effective against burglars trying to force windows and patio doors open.
Multi-point locking systems can also be fitted to aluminium doors and involve several hooks or bolts holding the door into the frame.

    If you have a good wooden/solid door then the use of mortise locks is essential. Mortise locks fit into a slot cut into the edge of the door and can usually only be opened with a key. Around the front and back of your home
Prevent easy access to the back and sides of your home by installing locked gates and fencing or walls at least two metres high. Trellis topping also makes climbing difficult.
If you have a garden area near your ground floor window, plant spiky or thorny bushes. This makes it difficult for a criminal to get to the window to try and get in.

    Home Security Advice – Lock it up

  • 19/12/2013 - by AKME Securitas

    Every home is different in relation to how best it can be protected or the type of prevention methods used to keep criminals out. Some Burglars are opportunistic, they look for easy ways in which they can get into a home, ones that won’t take too long, will make as little noise as possible and won’t arouse suspicion. Homes that look unoccupied and unsecured are more likely to be targeted.

    Alarms
    If you can afford an alarm, have one fitted to your home. I recommend one that sends a message directly to a mobile phone to alert a neighbour, an alarm response company and of course yourself. At the very least get one that makes lots of noise both inside and outside your premises. The noise of the alarm outside will hopefully alert your neighbours. The noise inside will play a part in making the burglar want to get out fast. (But remember your alarm sound time for your external alarm is only 4 minutes , then it is classed as noise pollution by law and you can be fined)

    CCTV
    CCTV for the home has come a long way in the last few years. Good Wi-Fi systems now mean you can keep a check on what is going on in your home via your Android mobile phone. Cameras which can pan and tilt using the screen of your phone are the latest development, and they just keep getting better. Not an essential addition to your home security, but something to seriously consider if you want complete peace of mind. Here in Cyprus, you need a fixed IP address for internet access to your cameras.

    Security Lighting
    Good security lighting is the criminal’s enemy; it makes them feel vulnerable and easily observed, illuminates high risk areas and makes sure it is easy for you to see people approaching your home. Ensure all your areas that are in darkness are covered by good security lights that are fitted with sensors to detect movement and that come on at night when the sensors are activated. Make sure you fit LED lights - they give off an extremely bright light without sending your electricity bill through the roof.

    Do not leave your porch light on at night when you go out just so that you have some light to make your way back by. Criminals see this as a good indication, along with the absence of a car on the drive, that the occupants are out for the evening. Fit a sensor to your porch light so that you have a light that comes on when you arrive home and walk up to the door.

    Fit timers to a couple of lamps inside the house and have them coming on and off at different times while you are out in the evenings. If you have wall lights fitted on the front garden walls, fit dusk till dawn sensors to illuminate these as soon as it is dark. Again, this can be done a very little extra cost to your electricity bill by using low energy bulbs.

    The Mall is great, but after living here for 2 years, I have to say that Public is the most racist, anti British store I have visited in Cyprus, even their entire website is in Greek, if they don't want "foreigners" in the store tell the staff to ask them to leave, not just ignore them when they have selected a new phone and a new tablet, but staff wouldn't even reply when I spoke to them. Went to Stephanis to buy these items. Never again will we go into Public.

    We booked a chair for for my mum for just 24 hours, normally the min booking is 4 days so in fairness they did make an exception but charged more for the day , 14 euro instead of 12. The chair was delivered 'fully charged' however on a short trip to paphos the bars went down to flashing red, almost out of battery.... My mum can't walK due to COPD so it was stressful cutting short our visit to get back to the hotel, not knowing if the chair would get us back. I phoned the company, no apology simply blaming the previous hirer!! Surely it's the responsibility of the company to make sure a chair is fully charged and fit for purpose. The owners were out so couldn't at the time do anything, thankfully we got back to the hotel....very slowly!Next day after a full 16 hours of charging the chair we went out for a short trip to the white chapel, not far really from our hotel at the Olympic lagoon, within 15 minutes the same happened an again we had to cut short our trip and limp back to the hotel. Once again I rang the owners, once again, no apology simply blaming previous users who clearly didn't know how to use the scooter. All they did say was, well we've spent thousands on new batteries for all our scooters, it's the people who hire them not us.I said they could come and collect the scooter early as we couldn't use it and left a note on the scooter to ask for a full refund ... It was thoroughly disappointing and very worrying for me as a carer when on both occasions the scooter failed .... Hot weather and my mum unable to walk back if the scooter did actually break down. If the owners had made an apology and sounded ever so slight bothered I could have accepted this was a one off, but I got nothing back from either of them. No acceptance of responsibility or lessons learnt. Please use other companies in paphos .... These people are unprofessional and totally unconcerned about your welfare safety or enjoyment. They refunded us a pathetic 7 euros , I'm not sure how they came to think we must have enjoyed any part of that... Let alone half!
