The Vicar of Dibley reviewed by Christopher Lloyd-PackThose of us who know and love the television comedy The Vicar of Dibley might have had some reservations about a stage play with the same loved characters. Well, those of you who missed it, missed it! This was something unexpectedly wonderful!

Who would have thought that here in the Algarve we would meet such carefully studied representations of those beloved folk – Thank you The Algarveans Experimental Theatre - the casting was excellent. I felt that I was at home watching an episode on the television!

ASB 8th AnniversaryThe Algarve Senior Bikers group was founded in June 2010 as a result of an idea of David Shirley.

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.
