The memory of a great friend and mentor, Nigel Watson has been kept alive in the northcyprusforum.net blog complete with its forum that we created, but it’s now time to make some changes to reach out to a bigger audience.
We are now in the process of incorporating the forum into cyprusscene.com with its membership and they will be receiving notification of the new sign-in procedure very soon and we hope that perhaps other readers may also wish to join them.
One of the features that we are delighted to bring to cyprusscene is the NCF Members events manager where members can post news of social and entertainment events which we will try to promote further where we can.
