Beat the credit crunch street party

A ‘beat the credit crunch’ street party, hosted and organised by several businesses in Almancil, is due to take place on Saturday, April 18.

The event, organised by the Griffin Bookshop, Joro Lda and Rui’s Chicken, will include a variety of activities such as cookery demonstrations, salsa dancing, children’s entertainment and book signings with Clive Dunn and other local authors.

During the day, Algarve children’s charity ACCA will also be running some associated fund raising events as well as a membership drive.

“Who says there’s nothing going on in the Algarve? Everyone is so doom and gloom at present, Marion from Joro Lda and I thought it was time for a fun event,” said Linda Gonçalves from the Griffin Bookshop.

For more information about this event, which will take place between 11am and 2pm, or if you would like to be involved, please contact Linda on (00351) 289 393 904 or email
