Members (some of them newly-recruited former service personnel) and guests enjoyed the afternoon on the terrace of the Pont’a Pe Restaurant in Aljezur, overlooking the Rio de Aljezur.
Organiser Sue Howe declared: “It was a lovely opportunity to extend the reach of the RBL here in Portugal along the West Coast and we had a very good turnout.
“Members old a new had a terrific time, and apparently the laughter could be heard echoing from the lower terrace, right up to the street above.
“It was a great success—with a promise of more to come—and the funds raised have been put towards the Poppy Appeal”.
There will also be a lunch for the Central Algarve branch at the Holiday Inn, Armacao de Pera on Wednesday 20th May which again is open to RBL members, and non members alike, with no extra charge for non members.
Cost is €16.50 per head and bookings (no later then May 18) should be made to Alun Roberts at:
