It has been announced that the 13th Cyprus Silkworm Festival, which had been organised by Girne Municipality, Green Peace Movement and Beylerbeyi (Bellapais) Muhtarlığı, and was to take place in Bellapais between 5th and 6th May, has been postponed.

This is due to an ill health problem of one of the Bellapais residents and the villagers had asked for the Festival to be delayed until the person has recovered and there will be a mood for celebration.

Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü stated that a new  date for the festival will be determined by consulting with the festival committee, and wishes a speedy recovery to the resident of Bellapais.
