In mid-October 2021 a group of 6 riders and 2 pillions from the Algarve Senior Bikers (ASB) hit the road to explore the picturesque Andalusian countryside in Southern Spain. Sunny weather, empty winding roads, fantastic culinary delicacies and several cultural highlights made the tour an unforgettable event.
The Algarve Senior Bikers met in Paderne for the start of their September ride, splitting into two groups- one led by Andrew Chilton and the other one led by Steve Wills.
Some riders had a slightly damp ride on the way to the meeting point for the Algarve Senior Bikers September ride, due to the early rain showers. The Meeting point was in São Marcos de Serra. The day was organised by Philippe Payen, with the assistance of Eric Desurvire and David Shirley.
During the recent somewhat warm weather, the organisers of the July ASB ride decided to head towards the cooler west coast and were lucky enough to find a cooling breeze for most of the trip.
In a fantastic new partnership, Algarve Croquet Club (ACC) has taken up home at the prestigious Benamor Golf in Conceiçao de Tavira, near Tavira.
Rotary Club Estoi Palace International (RCEPI) contacted Faro Hospital to see how they could help them. The Hospital has been under huge pressure both physically and financially during the pandemic with staff stretched to the limit. The Club received a “Wish List” of items that would help them and arranged for some of these to be delivered.
Since it was chartered in 2006 Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC) has been raising funds to support local disadvantaged people. In addition the club felt it important to give support and encouragement to local students.
Meeting face to face at last and strictly following Covid rules, a group from Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC) met for the hand-over to a new Club President last week. Rotary Presidents generally serve for one year and the Presidency changes in June or July each year depending on the club.
