EASTER PROGRAMME
Friday April 19 – Let’s Walk The Two Rivers

10.00am start – meet at the Mira Rio cafe on the road between Silves and Monchique. From the EN125 take the road to Silves, turn left to cross the bridge into Silves. Once across the bridge turn left at the lights and follow the road for 5km – the cafe in on the left on a bend. Julie 965 753 033
