We are grateful that we have been able to continue using the pitch at Olhanense for our sessions.
Our sessions for next week, commencing October 5th, will carry on as they are now, i.e. all in Olhão from 9.30 to 11.30 am on Monday (for the over 50s), Tuesday (for the over 60s), Wednesday (for running football) and Thursday (for the over 50s again).

With just over 2 months to go to the date when we would usually hold our annual Xmas bash, it would be reasonable to say that currently we are not making any plans to hold a party in December this year.
