Hidden Algarve Long ago in the Algarve, says the legend, a Nordic princess pined for her frozen homeland until her husband, the King of the Moors, planted thousands of almond trees. The snowwhite blossom soon brought a smile to her lips and to this day almost every house in the Algarve looks out to an almond tree. In the lush rolling hills of the interior, the trees herald the first days of spring, flowering among vineyards, orange groves, fig and carob trees. Just a stone’s throw away from the coast, it’s a quiet land of orchards and meadows, meandering lanes and forests and red-roofed villages tucked in the greenery, their whitewashed houses topped by filigree chimney pots, in Moorish style, and rooftop terraces where laundry and fruit dry side by side. Goats wander across the road and sometimes a donkey and cart rattle along the cobbled streets. The road to the top winds past the spa resort of Caldas de Monchique, once the site of Roman baths and the place where King Joao II came to take the waters in search of a cure, in the late 15th century. Now the emphasis is on beauty and well being, pampering and relaxation. In a deep wooded glen, quaint buildings gather around a shaded square and you are welcome to stroll in the park, quench your thirst and best of all, make a wish at the Fountain of Youth. Beyond this charming watering place, you reach the rustic hill town of Monchique, once a prosperous weaving centre for wool and cloth, still famous today for a wide range of craft, linen, wicker baskets, tree sculptures, wooden spoons, dried flowers and scissor chairs, invented, some say, by the Romans and so-named because of the way they fold up. All sorts of goods spill out on the pavements but step inside and you may find the shopkeeper quietly nursing her baby while grandma is shelling peas for the family’s supper. Then follow the lanes climbing up to the square and the whole town is at your feet, tumbling down the hillside among camellias, hydrangeas and fruit trees. The panorama is superb but anyone with a head for heights and twisty roads will also enjoy the drive up to Foia, just five miles away and the highest point at nearly 3,000 feet. Standing on the summit, battling with the wind, you feel like the knights of yore surveying the wild rolling lands of the Algarve, from the verdant slopes of the Serra to the coastal plain and the Atlantic glistening like silver on the horizon.

Local company Proposito shortlisted at Money Marketing Financial Services Awards Wiltshire firm, Proposito Financial Planning has been shortlisted for an award at the prestigious Money Marketing Financial Services Awards 2013. The Malmesbury-based firm providing bespoke wealth management expertise has been nominated in the Small Company IFA of the Year category. The national awards, now in their 23rd year seek to recognise adviser firms for both the quality of their advice as well as their business acumen. Proposito Director Huw Jones said, “It’s a great achievement for the company and we are all very proud, particularly as we are the smallest firm to make the shortlist”. “We have worked really hard over the past few years on many aspects of our client proposition, to ensure that we are always providing an exemplary service”, he explained. “There have been huge regulatory changes to our profession in recent years and it is no easy task for small companies to keep up with these changes while maintaining a successful business model, but we have obviously been doing things right.” Having been shortlisted at the end of last year, Huw recently travelled to London for an in-depth interview in front of a judging panel made up of industry experts. “They gave me quite a grilling, but it seemed to go very well, so now it’s a case of wait and see”, added Huw The award winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 21st March 2013.

HOPE is coming to Malmesbury A new church is opening in Malmesbury. The new Christian church with a lively informal feel is called “Hope”. Lydia and Mark Faithfull, joint pastors, share their vision for this new church with us. Why call it Hope church? “In these uncertain times, hope is so important, in fact we believe it’s powerful because if our hope is in God, for his provision, we are sure to see breakthroughs.” What will services be like? “Hope church is a place where families can enjoy the experience of worshipping and learning together. Times of contemporary worship interspersed with a fun, multi media approach to biblical teaching means children, young people and adults should all feel at home in a relaxed environment; where laughter and spirituality go hand in hand. (We’ll be serving good coffee and friendship too!)” Why is your tag line “Live, Think, Be”? “Hope church exists to help people get the most out of life, our thought patterns can quite literally make or break us and it is really helpful to discover how to simply be where we are and enjoy the moment. Our vision is that people LIVE with hope, THINK healthily and BE happy! It’s that simple. We are normal everyday people looking to an awesome God for everyday help and guidance and finding that life is a lot simpler for it – we’re here to pass that on.”  All aspects of interior & exterior decorating When and where will Hope church meet? to a professional high quality finish Hope church will be meeting in Malmesbury secondary  Very competitive rates to suit your budget school every Sunday from the 17th March 10am.
