In line with many other local clubs and societies and following government guidelines Retford Men’s Probus Club stopped holding their meetings in March 2020 Lockdown was introduced and despite being unable to meet, the club committee made a point of contacting members with news, views and updates. With no meetings taking place, and with guest speakers booked through until March 2021, after great deliberation the committee decided that possible cancellations by arrangement may be the way forward and hopefully re-book when things return to normal Although not completely out of the woods yet (covid wise) but heading in the right direction the club committee have decided to regroup and commence meetings once again. The meetings will take place at the usual venue Westhill Community Center Cheyne Walk Ordsall. A new programme has been formulated with a variety of speakers covering a host of topics with hopefully something to suit the majority of tastes. The first of these meetings being scheduled to take place on Friday 3rd September at 10am. This will be the clubs AGM and get together. On Friday 17th September members will get the opportunity to welcome back a very popular figure when 60’s icon Vince Eager makes a welcome return to our club (to be confirmed).and the entertainer who in the heyday of Rock’N Roll shared top billing with the likes of Marty Wilde, Joe Brown and Eddy Cochran to name but a few! On this occasion Vince will address the members on “Life after the Eurovision Song Contest”.
