Probus enjoyed another good meeting and lunch at Drayton Crown in January. As always we had a good attendance and welcomed Angela Cole as a new member so our lady membership is growing steadily.
We had some good discussion about the changes to our constitution which will be ratified at our AGM in March when we will also vote in our officers for the year.
In February we will be welcoming Sherrie-Jane Jackson as our speaker. She has spent a number of years working on the Mercy Ships and we anticipate a lively and eye-opening half hour as she regales us with stories of her time working for this good cause.
You can telephone Paul Crocker 01458 252545 if you would like to join us. We meet at Drayton Crown on 2nd Wednesday each month from 12md to about 2.30. We look forward to meeting you.
About Probus http://langportandcurryprobus.btck.co.uk/
We're a club for retired or semi retired professional, business and other people on the Somerset Levels, who having retired miss the fellowship and friendship of colleagues.
We meet once a month for a talk by a guest speaker and lunch, and occasionally we venture out on trips and visits. We're open to both men and women, we're non political, non sectarian, and are not involved in any charitable activities. We do enjoy a good natter and a debate, and generally end up putting the World right.
So, what's it cost? Well, unlike some other Probus clubs there's no joining or registration fees, merely an annual sub which is currently £12.00. After that, it's simply buying your lunch and a drink at the monthly meetings. Currently, we pay £11.00 per head for a two-course lunch plus coffee.
