Kapsali Initiative.pdf

Dear Friends,

The fire that broke out last August close to Chora’s main square, following the fire that burned the area around Agia Elessa a month earlier, set in motion the formation of the Kapsali Initiative which had existed earlier as a thought and was initiated by Dr. Panagiotis Vardas.

The first action was to proceed with the pruning and clearing of the pine tree forest area in Kapsali along with the removal of remnant vegetation, so as to minimize the risk of fire. The conservation of this small forest, covering an area of about 52 stremmata, is of great importance for the island.

The works, performed by Michalis Kalligeros and his crew, are already underway at fast pace and so the landscape is steadily being transformed to a healthy and viable green park, now easily accessed by visitors and locals.

The total cost for the project has been estimated at around 22.000€. The works are being supervised voluntarily by a small committee, in which Vassilis Douridas participates on behalf of R.C.TECH.
The Kapsali Initiative needs the help of friends that will support it financially. So far the amount of 9.375€ has been collected through the following donations by various individuals wanting to help:
Μ.Κ.: 300€, Π.B.: 1.000€, Γ. Ζ.: 1.000€, Ν.Μ.: 2.500€, Ν.Σ.: 500€, Β.Ξ.: 1.000€, Ι.Κ.: 500€, Γ.Φ.: 100€, Π.Α.: 500€, E.K.: 100€, Γ.Δ.: 500€, Β.Δ.: 500€, M.K.: 875€

The amount remaining can be raised only through additional contributions. To become active supporters of the Iniative’s work in Kapsali you can use the following bank account which has been opened in the National

Bank of Greece:
ΙΒΑΝ: GR 4801 1038 0000 0038 0296 03628
Name: Κυθηραϊκός Σύνδεσμος (Kythiraikos Syndesmos)


Our aim is to raise the needed amount before Easter time since works of this kind are typically not allowed later than that due to the approaching summer season. You can find updated photos and videos of the project here, throughout the duration of the works.

Thanking you in advance for your support,

Friends of the Kapsali Initiative.

Αγαπητοί Φίλοι,

Η φωτιά του περασμένου Αυγούστου, που εκδηλώθηκε σε απόσταση αναπνοής από την πλατεία της Χώρας, ως συνέχεια της πυρκαγιάς που κατέκαψε την περιοχή της Αγίας Ελέσσας ένα μήνα νωρίτερα, ενεργοποίησε την Πρωτοβουλία για το Καψάλι, που υπήρχε νωρίτερα ως σκέψη και ξεκίνησε από τον ιατρό Παναγιώτη Βάρδα.

Ως πρώτη ενέργεια υιοθετήθηκε ο καθαρισμός και η εξυγίανση (κλαδέματα, απομάκρυνση ξερής φυτικής ύλης κ.α.) του πευκοδάσους στο Καψάλι, ώστε να προστατευθεί από τον κίνδυνο της φωτιάς. Πρόκειται για έκταση περίπου 52 στρεμμάτων χωρίς την περιοχή του camping (ενδεικτικά αναφέρεται ότι η έκταση του Εθνικού Κήπου στην Αθήνα είναι 75 στρέμματα), η προστασία της οποίας αναδεικνύεται πλέον ως άμεση ανάγκη.

Το έργο του καθαρισμού και της εξυγίανσης, εκτελείται ήδη με γοργό ρυθμό από τον Μιχάλη Καλλίγερο και το συνεργείο του και έτσι η πευκόφυτη έκταση έχει πλέον πάρει την εικόνα ενός υγιούς και βιώσιμου δασικού παρκου, προσβάσιμου εύκολα από τους επισκέπτες και τους κατοίκους του νησιού.

Η συνολική δαπάνη του έργου προβλέπεται να ανέλθει στις 22.000€ περίπου. Οι εργασίες παρακολουθούνται αφιλοκερδώς από μικρή επιτροπή, στην οποία μετέχει εκ μέρους της R.C.TECH ο Βασίλης Δουρίδας.

Η Πρωτοβουλία για το Καψάλι χρειάζεται ενεργούς φίλους που θα την υποστηρίξουν οικονομικά. Μέχρι σήμερα έχουν συγκεντρωθεί 9.375€ μέσα από τις ακόλουθες συνεισφορές φίλων της Πρωτοβουλίας:
Μ.Κ.: 300€, Π.B.: 1.000€, Γ. Ζ.: 1.000€, Ν.Μ.: 2.500€, Ν.Σ.: 500€, Β.Ξ.: 1.000€, Ι.Κ.: 500€, Γ.Φ.: 100€, Π.Α.: 500€, E.K.: 100€, Γ.Δ.: 500€, Β.Δ.: 500€, M.K.: 875€
Το ποσό που υπολείπεται μπορεί να συγκεντρωθεί μόνο μέσα από τις προσφορές σας. Για να γίνετε ενεργοί υποστηρικτές της Πρωτοβουλίας και του έργου της στο Καψάλι μπορείτε να χρησιμοποιήσετε τον λογαριασμό που διατηρείται στην Εθνική Τράπεζα με τα παρακάτω στοιχεία:
ΙΒΑΝ: GR 4801 1038 0000 0038 0296 03628
Κυθηραϊκός Σύνδεσμος


Στόχος μας είναι να συγκεντρωθεί το απαιτούμενο ποσό πριν το Πάσχα διότι αργότερα δεν επιτρέπονται εργασίες αυτού του είδους. Ενημερωμένο φωτογραφικό υλικό και video του έργου μπορείτε να βρίσκετε καθ' όλη τη διάρκεια των εργασιών εδώ.
Σας ευχαριστούμε εκ των προτέρων,

Οι ενεργοί φίλοι της Πρωτοβουλίας για το Καψάλι.

Erecting the primary monopatia (walking trail) sign in Avlemonas

Monday July 23, 2012.

Supervised by Fivos Tsaravopoulos.

Present to witness the erection of the sign was the Secretary and Assitant Secretary of the Kytherian Association of Australia, George C Poulos, and Kalie Zervos. The Kytherian Association of Australia - along with the Nicholas Anthony Aroney Trust, have contributed considerable funds to realise the walking trails project.

Also present was Mr Vardas, (far left), President of the Kytherian Association in Alimos, Athens - and recently appointed Trustee to the Tryffillion Trust, Athens / Kythera. His home on Kythera lies opposite the monopatia sign - and he involves himself strongly in the affairs of Avlemonas.

Those who know this beautiful beachside town well will realise the Avlemonas community has banded together to create a small walking trail themselves - around the bizina tis Aphrodite's. (This is the first year in which you can walk easily around the bizina - to the next bay and towards the limani).
