Uniting the nations

Members of the St. Andrew’s Society and the St. Patrick’s Society of the Algarve joined forces to take part in a countryside walk on St. George’s day, April 23.

Rod Frew of the St. Andrew’s Society and Jim Brownlow of the St. Patrick’s Society organised the walk to take place around the equestrian centre Equus Qurique near Ourique in the Alentejo.

Around 40 members of the two societies took part in the walk which included viewing archaeological remains near Castro de Cola.

Rod Frew said: “Although the weather was not at its best the splendour of the scenery and the good humour of the group more than made up for it.”
