Have your say

They are not vampires but the Probus Club of Spalding would like some new blood.

With the passing of time their ranks are gradually being depleted and Vice President, Roger Perkins: “We would welcome a transfusion”.

Founded in 1970, the club meets for lunch on the first Wednesday of the month at the South Holland Centre, Spalding at 12.30pm for a 12.45pm start.

The monthly luncheon cost is currently £8.50 and lunch is followed by a short talk. Speakers’ topics this year have ranged from ‘Famous Comics and Characters from Stage and Screen’ to ‘The Life of an Olympics Game Maker’.

The club is for men who have retired or are semi-retired from their profession or business and who wish to continue belonging to a group with others who have similar interests.

Annual membership of the club is £10 and its aim is to promote friendship and fellowship amongst its members.

A Ladies Day luncheon, which includes entertainment, is held once a year. Members’ wives or partners are invited to the December meeting where again entertainment is provided.

Many members participate in the Probus Indoor Bowls League.

Other activities include trips to places of historical, cultural or technical interest.

For more information contact club secretary and past president Brian Geary on 01775 714099.
