Students from schools in Almancil, Quarteira, Algoz and Armacão de Pêra have been preparing their menus and putting on their aprons for the cookery competition supported by IRC Almancil and RC Silves. The schools have to choose their best teams to go forward to semi finals. The judges have been helping in their selection with advice and support and of course sampling the menus. Dispite their obvious nerves, they all coped well and provided a very good level of service. The judges provide valuable feedback for the teams during these practice sessions. Each school will identify a team of 5 made up of 3 chefs and 2 servers for the semi final next month. The final two teams will cook in the Conrad Hotel kitchen in March. The prizes will be awarded at a celebration dinner in the Conrad Hotel.

As part of RC Silves Community Service, Stewart & Linda handed over 2 large boxes to Dave Mossman for Castelo do Sonhos.
The boxes contained 180 small white towels and 40 toilet bags each containing soap / towellette / shaving kit / toothbrush.
These were obtained via a Rotary colleague of Stewart’s in the UK. Thank you goes to Algarve removals who shipped the boxes free of charge to Portugal.
Dave reported that CAFAP / Castelo do Sonhos were delighted and quickly identified needy recipients.
