Hello everybody,

On the 25th of April will be the one year anniversary since the passing of our friend PatrĂ­cia Santos.
The Cambridge University Portuguese Speakers Society together with a group of her friends is organizing an event in her memory on the 24th of April.
We will go for a bike ride from Cambridge to St. Ives, and back. It's a 23km bike ride each way, and we will go via the Cambridge busway. Google maps estimates that this should take us 1 hour and 15 minutes each way.
This bike ride will take place in the morning, and we should arrive in St. Ives at lunch time. We will then have lunch at one of the pubs/restaurants of this lovely town.
If you would prefer not cycle but would still like to join us for lunch in St Ives, there's a bus running on Sundays from Cambridge to St Ives.

We hope you can join us!

# # Summary:
# What? Bike ride Cambridge - St. Ives - Cambridge, with lunch break in St. Ives
# Why? In memory of PatrĂ­cia Santos
# When? On the 24th of April. We will meet at Cambridge's Market Square and leave by 10:30.
# How? Cycling! (or taking the Busway
# What if it rains? If it rains we can take the bus instead of our bikes! But let's hope it doesn't!

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us on fb or throught our email [email protected]

See you all soon!

Hello everybody,

Please welcome Mr. Paulo OsĂłrio, he will be our cocktail and wine expert!

Mr Paulo OsĂłrio is a wine expert. He has a degree in Agriculture Engineering from the Technical University of Lisbon. He worked in Brussels as a representative of the Portuguese Farmers Federation for 11 years, and then moved definitively to Douro.

There he started a wine producing company – Lavradores de Feitoria and then worked as marketing manager of another company, Caves Vale do Rodo, a large farmers cooperative. Both these companies have some of their wines here.

Between 2008 and 2011 Paulo served as Vice-president of the Port and Douro Wine Institute, the public institution that regulates all the Port and Douro wines production. He is now CEO of Porto Reccua S.A., a company responsible for commercialising Port and Douro wines of the largest Cooperative of farmers in the Douro. Paulo also has his own managing and consulting company, giving strategy and exporting advice to different producers and institutions.

Paulo travels a lot around the world showing some of the best Portuguese wines, and he flew from Douro to Cambridge on purpose for this workshop.

Portugueses em Cambridge 23/10/2015

(Sorry for the Portuguese post)

Acabámos de criar o site . Um site que pretendemos manter atualizado com todas as informações que precisas se pretendes mudar-te para Cambridge.

Nesta página pretende-se dar a conhecer tudo o que um novo habitante precisa para se adaptar à cidade, abrangendo assuntos que vão desde a explicação do sistema fiscal britânico até à descrição dos melhores locais para jogar futebol.

Desta forma podemos mostrar a todos os portugueses que vão chegando a esta cidade como tirar o maior proveito da estadia, seja ela temporária ou permanente. Existem informações sobre a História de Cambridge, a melhor forma de encontrar alojamento, como lidar com questões laborais, como tratar da burocracia, os transportes da cidade, onde fazer compras, opções para o tempo livre e os locais certos para praticar desporto. Tudo isto de uma forma descontraida e com algum humor.
