The one at Blue Dream was trashed in an attempted robbery... numpties got away with zilch leaving only their photos on the security cameras when peering in through the windows at Blue Dream to see if there was anything worth breaking in for.... Epic fail!

This is really good news as a pharmacy is badly needed. A good bakery would also be much appreciated with homemade type food.

Great news about the phamacy

Atm would be good if they stocked sterling,otherwise we have one at the Limosol bank Esenteppe

A butchers would be wonderful,a money exchange,dvd shop,chinese restauraunt.

Meanwhile we have to be grateful that these are available to us even if we do have to travel a way to reach them

Message 9.I thought there are 2 butchers in Esentepe,1 on corner of Tumba, the other opposite the Belediyesi. There is a bank, there was a DVD shop but closed down presumably because of lack of trade and a Chinese restaurant,well I'd have thought there were enough other restaurants trying to scratch a living within the area.

I am aware there are two butchers in Esentepe village.I was refering to the type of butcher where the meat is on display and you can view and choose, ie Kibbet, Karakum or even the supermarkets.

I mentioned we have a bank and ATM in the village.The ATM doesn't stock sterling.

Agree there are many restaurants struggling to make go of it. Most offering similar type of menu

It would be nice to have a choice of something different

When shops are together,off the main road, easily recognised, with easy parking folk will opt for the convenience of that,especially visitors who don't know their way round.

Worker asked please to make suggestions.That's what I did.

Everyones requirements are different. As I said before I'm grateful that I can meet my requirements even if I do have to travel

Sorry if this is a daft question, but why would you need easy access to sterling when the local currency is YTL?



If travelling abroad, I'm sure most people would find time to visit the town bank before travelling , or even pick it up at the airport?

Esentepe is probably too small at present to warrant it, but would be lovely in the future to have a small coffee-shop/deli selling homemade cakes and savoury snacks and with free wifi to attract more customers in.

Something akin to Costa Coffee would be operfect -I can only dream !!!

msg 11

Like the writer of msg 16. I cannot understand this great concern that you have with Sterling availibility from an ATM. TL is the local currency. Seems a strange priority to me. There are very few ATMs here that provide Sterling too & they are all in Girne.

When I first moved to the TRNC in 2002. There weren't even any ATMs....anywhere. There weren't any chemists or banks except in Girne. You even had to get large water bottles from Girne. There weren't even any supermarkets outside Girne then. We survived despite this.

Now there are many different bank branches, chemists & almost every kind of convenience in outlying villages here, but still some aren't satisfied.

As I said in an earlier thread a good fruit and veg market like Ya Beles would be good as the fruit and veg in the markets here always look very tired.

Msg 19, totally agree. However, some people are only happy to see The Queen on their filthy lucre and she doesn't appear on TRY notes. Strange though, given that TRY is the official currency, I am often quoted in GBP, or $ for services from local shops - not that I actually pay them anything other than TRY. I despair also of the need for yet more restaurants in the Esentepe area - there has to be 40 within 15 minutes drive from the centre of the village and at least 8 in the village itself.

For all those of you who are wondering why some people are asking for a cash machine that dispenses sterling let me try to explain. When you use an English debit card to withdraw cash in ytl, you get the uk rate for that day which is always considerably less than the rate you will get in the TRNC. On top of this you will be charged by your bank for using your card abroad. However, if you use your card to buy sterling, there are no bank charges and you change your sterling into ytl and get a much better rate here. Some of us pensioners have our pensions paid into UK bank accounts and withdraw the money on a weekly or fortnightly basis in this way and as every penny counts, we make a little bit extra doing it this way.

Oh I see -Butlers Wife, yes, that makes perfect sense, I don't blame you one bit !! As you say, every penny counts and why should the banks have more than they need to?



Thanks Worker for the info re: Mardo selling coffees, cakes, etc, and the free WIFI -I shall definately be a regular visitor there on future visits to Esentepe.



Thanks also for your efforts in getting the Chemist in Esentepe, I'm sure all the locals will be delighted that they no longer have to travel so far to get their medicines.



Best Wishes



Susie

Another vote for a good fruit and veg shop. It will be lovely not having to travel into Girne for any pharmacy items. We're slowly but surely becoming "self sufficient" this end of the island
