Open Afternoon and Dixie Kings at Bela Romão Croquet Club - Nov 8Whether you would like to know more about Bela Romão Croquet Club, or you would like to learn something about croquet you are welcome to visit the Club and grounds during the Open Afternoon from 3pm on Saturday 8th November, perhaps play some croquet (depending upon the weather) and/or listen to a short talk about the game, and sample some of Chef Sarah´s food specialities. Drinks will also be on sale. (Flat shoes only on the croquet lawn).

Following on from the Open Afternoon, starting at 5 pm on Saturday 8 November the 5 piece band Dixie Kings will be playing a mixture of Blues, Stomps, Ragtime, Spirituals and popular tunes from the 1920s, which guarantees the audience an evening of excitement and nostalgia.

The Algarveans are “Going Dutch”!The latest production from The Algarveans Experimental Theatre Group “Going Dutch” by John Godber promises to be one of the best.

Judging by the reaction in rehearsals and the amount of laughter we are having at the script I think this will be a very funny play,” said the play’s director Melanie Winstanley.

You don’t have to be able to read music, you only need to love singing in a choir.

Activity Algarve Bike Rides

We managed a good ride on Sunday from Guia for Evelyn's farewell ride, and the weather certainly warmed up. In fact the weather forecasters predict that we are in for a spell of dry and warm weather, so we should have ideal cycling weather for the next few rides.

Now is a good time to get going again if you haven't been out on your bike for a while !
