Please bring your family & friends and come along and support this fantastic event. We are also seeking a few more volunteers for our stall so if you are interested please email

SAVE THE DATE: our annual Kopiaste Dinner and Dance will be held on the 15th September 2018.

Did you know where Flaounes originated from?

It is a Cypriot tradition to make Flaounes for Greek Easter. Even though the word flaouna originates from ancient Greece it was brought to Cyprus by the French during the Frankish occupation from 1192 to1489 as Flaon. The indigenous Greeks then named them Flaounes. The Turkish Cypriot community which was formed during the Ottoman occupation from 1571 to 1878 adopted the recipe and named it Pilavuna.
