Cyprusscene – the road ahead in 2016

 

By Chris Elliott…….

The end of 2015 brings cyprusscene.com moving forward into its 4th year and what a fascinating journey it has been.

During this time we have seen many writers and contributors bringing their news and review articles to our pages and long may it continue so that we can share with the community, and the worldwide readership through our sharing partners, websites and forum.

We also have our individual projects and Margaret Sheard has worked very hard and has been very successful in building a network of contacts that have provided so many human interest stories of life in Cyprus and there are more to come.

Talking of life in Cyprus, we also must thank Ismail Veli for his ongoing articles about Cyprus and its people, its history and culture. Not satisfied with this, he is also bringing  us many fascinating articles about hobbies and worldwide subjects.

Ralph Kratzer the Secretary of the Foreign Residents in the TRNC (TFR) remains a backbone of our group by Happy New Year 2016bringing  many weekly articles about their activities plus some interesting comments by famous people plus some very tasty recipes.

For my part I have had the pleasure of helping both individuals and a number of organisations develop their own websites or blogs and they in turn have then brought their news and reviews for sharing across our media community. Currently we have been working on the re-launch of the North Cyprus Forum which will also feature many of our community news and review articles in its own newly designed blog section.

Perhaps my most meaningful project this year has been the completion of a series of articles with videos we made about the water pipeline from Turkey to the TRNC and to be standing side by side with the Turkish speaking press and media and also to meet Ministry officials was a very big honour.

So what of the future for 2016, well we are looking to bring a few more people into our hobbyist team who can help with the processing and sharing  of your news and reviews and also develop their own passion for writing and creating entertaining reading.

Is it too early to be thinking about 2017?  Well we will just have to wait and see and in the meanwhile we send you our best wishes for a healthy, prosperous and successful 2016.
