Re: WALK on 22nd JUNE: PEDREIRAS

Please bear in mind that the temperature on Monday may well be in the low to mid 30’s so please bring plenty water and cool clothing. The walk is normally around 2hrs but we will have plenty stops and not go too quickly, so it may be a wee bit longer. Lunch has been booked at Casa Da Vinha for 12.30...

8th JUNE: POCO BARRETO

This is the walk that was planned for the 17th March, pre the lockdown. It is a simple walk through the Silves Orange Groves but approaching it from another direction. It was last done by CVO Ramblers about 5 yrs ago and is well worth reprising. It is only about 1hr 40mins and is level(ish) in some ...

KITCHEN CUPBOARD

Is anyone out there ripping out their old kitchen?

We need a 900mm wide wooden wall mounted cupboard to fill a gap caused by removal of our water tank.

It is the wooden carved style used in AdM.
