During the summer Skopelosnews is very busy but thanks to readers of the blog we can show you things that are happening on the island.

These roadworks were long overdue. The flood of 2015 had taken away a part of this coastal road and it was pretty difficult and dangerous to pass the makeshift fence when another car was coming from the opposite direction. Hopefully the work will be done quickly because there are a lot of cars driving on that part of the road.
Thanks to Stephen and Claire for the photo.

No really, the buses are running! You cannot see at what time they will go at the moment but the blank area where times should be will be full in a short while.

Thanks Stephen and Claire for the photo. Skopelosnews loves it when readers participate in the blog like this.

Passengers that come in on later flight cannot spend the night on Skiathos. They should be able to travel with a later boat and if that was leaving after 9 that was never a problem in the past. The situation that the Sporades finds itself in is not a new one and who will come with a definite solution? Below is the article in the greek newspaper; e-thessalia
