Prizes galore at Christmas fair

Network’s Spirit of Christmas Fair took place at the Hotel Garbe in Armação de Pêra on Tuesday, offering visitors the chance to snap up Christmas gifts.

There were a variety of stalls including Christmas goodies from Sweet Marilyn, fashion from Collections and Christmas cards from Rainbow Cards.

Gill Bradley, who attended the fair, said: “There was a real selection of goodies along with a raffle and tombola with some fantastic prizes and Father Christmas was in attendance to entertain the children. It was busy and there was a positive response from the stall holders.”

The Christmas Quiz, which was featured in the Algarve Resident Christmas Special (November 27), was won by Alan and Suzanne Smith from Faro. The couple will be enjoying a weekend at the Hotel Garbe.

Network is the association of working and business women in Portugal.
