ASB 8th AnniversaryThe Algarve Senior Bikers group was founded in June 2010 as a result of an idea of David Shirley. To celebrate the 8th anniversary one group of riders set out to ride through the eastern Algarve and a second group started in the west. Both groups arrived in the central Algarve at Benafim for a celebratory lunch at Restaurant O Hamburgo on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far.

ASB entertain group of bikers from ScotlandOn Friday 18th of May and Monday 21st of  May, the Algarve Senior Bikers put on two special rides for a group of visiting riders from Scotland.
On Friday the ride started in Paderne and after a long tour through the mountains into the lower Alentejo finished with a superb BBQ lunch including a marvellous selection of desserts at the Cooperativa in Montes Novas near to Baranco Velho.
Stops were made along the way at various viewpoints and for refreshments.

Musical Evening to aid Estoi Casa do PovoIn 2009 just after its inauguration the Rotary Club of Estoi Palace International (RCEPI) looked for a project that would help the underprivileged in Estoi. Financial collapse was engulfing the world and the number of families registered locally with the Faro Food Bank was rising dramatically. Our then President Agnete Sylvan talked to the Director of the Casa do Povo about how we could help and the monthly food packs distributed from the Community Centre to those registered with the Food Bank were discussed.
At that time each family only received 1 litre of long life milk per month. Our Club decided to increase this to 6 litres per child and 2 litres per adult for each family at an annual cost of approximately 2500 euros. This is funded in the main by the quiz nights organised by RCEPI.

The AlgarveansThe Western Algarve Community Choir (WACC) are to join The Algarveans Experimental Theatre group for their next play, The Vicar of Dibley (a stage play by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter, adapted from the original television series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer and with kind permission of Tiger Aspect Productions) with the choir singing live throughout the production to be staged at Lagoa Auditorium in June.

St Patrick's Society Spring walkThe St. Patrick’s Society of the Algarve held their Spring Walk in the Monte Clerigo area on April 28th, followed by an excellent and convivial lunch in the beach Restaurant O Zé.
Perfect weather, without any of the rain which was forecast, beautiful scenery and wildflowers resulted in a most impressive and enjoyable walk along the cliff tops, rendered even more auspicious by it being on the 85th birthday of the Chairman Jim Brownlow.
