Probus 2

by Dorothy Wadesdon

Probus is for all of you out there, men and women of any age, once you are semi/fully retired.

We do have an interesting club life, we have an eclectic mix of speakers and we have lunch together, when a lot of conversation and some laughter takes place. We all hale from different backgrounds and careers so we all have something interesting to talk about and listen to.
Recently our speakers have talked about the Wilds and Wetlands of Somerset, Battleships of the WW1 which was more interesting than it sounds, even to a woman, like me. We have had some fun with the talk on Roman Prostitution and My Life as a Dyslectic.
We are intending to have a day out somewhere together with our spouses, partners etc. — the challenge is finding somewhere that we will all enjoy.
In June we will meet on Tuesday 13th at the Drayton Crown at 11.30 for 12md start and I can't wait to see what delights the Chairman, David Wadeson has in store for us.
The grapevine tells me our speaker will be a lovely lady from Nat West on the perils of financial scams, and how to avoid being "taken for a ride".
Ring Paul Crocker on 252545 and we will arrange for you to be met at the venue.
