Probus Club of Langport & Curry Rivel Doings
The club had their annual Summer Lunch at Hornsbury Mill near Chard again this year. An opportunity for members to bring spouses, family and friends to enjoy the day and meet up with the new and old.
The raffle proceeds will be used by the club for the enjoyment of the members and will not go into the general fund.
Sadly the trip to Bucklers Hard has had to be cancelled but maybe an outing next year.
So far this year Probus have had a good mix of speakers and topics and have some excellent talks lined up for the rest of the year when the Chair will pass on to John Keep.
The next meeting is 11th September. In October the talk is titled "The work of Marie Curie Nurses" by Judy Glossop, the Marie Curie Legacy Advisor.
The September and October meetings will be at the usual venue — The Old Pound Inn at Aller, on the 11th September and 9th October (being the second Wednesday in every month) at 11.30am for 12noon start. This gives members and guests time to choose and pay for their drink and meal.
There is an annual subscription at £12 with members paying for their own meals etc. Members can choose how large or small a meal they wish to have.
