How many times have you asked a question to be met with 'Google it' as a response? These days we have come to expect information at our fingertips, and it came as a big surprise to me when I first arrived in Cyprus to find that Google was letting me down!
I looked for places to go, baby groups to attend, local information, bank holidays, how to register for schools, you name it I looked for it and for the most part I couldn't find it.
A while ago, due to my frustration I set up the 'East Coast Mum's' facebook group which in the end had over 100 members, I often shared information I saw online that I thought might interest other Mums, everything from local events to scheduled power cuts and enjoyed spreading the word to those who might not have heard, here it's not always that easy to know what's going on!
Over the last 4 years things have improved a lot but our little bit of Cyprus seems to have always been sadly neglected!
Well, not anymore....
