José Assunção has been named as the new president of the Sociedade Recreativa Carvoeirense 20 de Janeiro social club in Carvoeiro.
The club, situated on the first floor above shops near the pharmacy on Rua dos Pescadores, was first founded in 1935 but in recent years has been in decline. “The sociedade was created to serve the community, to provide a place for recreation and entertainment and that is what we want to bring back now,” said José Assunção.
A reshuffle of the committee in January has given the sociedade a new lease of life and now tenders are being put into the Junta in Carvoeiro and Lagoa Câmara for funding to provide new equipment such as ping pong tables and teachers for the children.
“Membership to the club is a nominal fee of just one euro per month, which entitles you to full use of the facilities and the bar which has the cheapest prices in Carvoeiro.
“We want to encourage all nationalities to join the sociedade because it is for the whole community to use,” he said.
