The British Embassy posted a notice on their Facebook page yesterday regarding some UK banks’ decision to close accounts belonging to EU/EEA residents: https://www.facebook.com/204010523005302/posts/4444548365618142/?extid=C86CfIpy64GDufh5&d=n
For those that don’t use Facebook:
Some of our UK nationals in Cyprus may have seen recent media coverage about some UK banks’ decision to close accounts belonging to EU/EEA residents, and we wanted to share the latest information.
Whether UK banks can service EEA-based customers after the end of the UK Transition Period is a matter of local law and regulation in each country, and may be impacted by how firms are set up and what steps they have taken to continue to serve customers. We expect UK banks to comply with the law at all times.
If you are affected, your provider will contact you directly.
As we are unable to provide any financial advice, you should contact your bank or an independent financial adviser if you have any questions.
More information is available from the UK Financial Conduct Authority here: https://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/how-brexit-could-affect-you

This Wednesday the Computer Technology Group will restart their meetings, however in light of the continuing heat, lack of available AC, and low expected numbers of (physical) attendees, the meeting will be held via the Zoom conferencing App.
The Zoom meetings held in the past have been very successful.
If you would like to be included please send an e-mail to Derek (address on Group page) for an invitation to the meeting and for any more information you need.
Unfortunately I have to start with another sad piece of news; Mr. Tom Mason, partner of Pam Ainger passed away recently in the UK.
Tom had been a member since 2007.
Our condolences are sent to Pam and to all Tom's friends and family
On a happier note... Karaoke, with John, re-starts in two weeks on Sunday 20th September. We hope to see you there, if not before. More information can be found on the Sunday page of this website.
