Gala week events

The AFPOP Gala Week is fast approaching. The first event is the tennis tournament, which will be held at the Carvoeiro Clube de Ténis. Please note that the date for this tournament has been brought forward to Saturday, September 25. The other events in the Gala Week are bowls, bridge, golf and a ‘clue’ walk. These will all take place between October 5 and 8 and will culminate with the annual gala dinner and dance, the association’s premier social event of the year. This will be held at the prestigious Penina hotel on Saturday, October 9.

Application forms for the events and tickets for the Gala Dinner are available from the AFPOP office. Please book early for all events to avoid disappointment. Entry to the Gala Week activities is open to both AFPOP members and non-members.

New benefits for AFPOP members

There are new benefits to AFPOP membership that we have negotiated over the summer period. These include cheaper telephone calls through an arrangement with Global Talk, reduced cost ferry and channel tunnel crossings with Direct Ferries, cheaper car hire rates with Cristal Car and discounted rail travel costs on the Portuguese railways. These new benefits, together with existing benefits and the information service that is available to our members, make membership of AFPOP even more attractive and necessary than it ever has been.

For more information on these benefits, and about the services provided by AFPOP to its members, contact the AFPOP office via e-mail on [email protected], by phone on 282 458 509 or visit the AFPOP office in Portimão. Directions can be obtained from our website
