Retford Men’s Probus Club has been running since 1971. Our meetings take place at the Westhill Community Centre, Ordsall at 10.00am every other Friday. If you want to get involved pleased view our website.
The autumn season is upon us, which means our fortnightly Friday morning ‘Probus’ meetings have started again.
In September we had two meetings where our guest speakers were really upto, if not above, last year’s excellent standard.
David Dawson, originally from Sheffield but now a Clarborough man, gave a really good talk on the renovation of some of our local canals, and shared experiences of how he and his wife have enjoyed narrow boating.
Our second speaker was Steve Short, who like David had spoken to us before. This time his presentation covered the careers of Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wize. As previously Steve was very funny and went through a couple of the comedians routines.
During October we have a speaker talking about working ‘back stage’ in the theatre and another from The Dogs Trust. In November two further speakers will be telling us about restoring a French Country House and working in Show Business.
Over the next two years we are running a campaign to increase our membership. If you have retired, or are about, to please have a good trawl through our web site, to see if there is anything of interest.
Otherwise, we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Westhill Community Centre.
