PLEASE STAY AT HOME AND STAY SAFE. The summer magazine was posted and a version also emailed to club contacts (if we have an email address) so hopefully you will have received a copy one way or another. We are so very grateful to the advertisers who enabled this, albeit smaller, issue to be printed. It is now clear the vast majority of advertisers will not be in a position to advertise just yet so both the autumn and winter editions of the magazine have been cancelled. I do have a plan B. Instead of producing one magazine for the quarter I will prepare a series of newsletters and distribute them online as soon as I have enough content. So I need your articles please!
Have you or your fellow members learned a new skill because of lockdown – maybe cooking or something similar?
Do let me know! With no-one going anywhere now is the ideal time to get your items published!!!
So please check the website for the latest news which will appear on this welcome page. It took two days to send the summer magazine to club contacts by email (when someone else had kindly scanned it) so I would prefer not to have to go through that exercise again! It did clog up the Probus email and people were receiving rejection messages, but I think I am still getting the emails. If one club member downloads it they can hopefully email to all members and maybe print out and post the odd copy to any members who don’t have email.
Could I please ask that clubs who received but have not paid invoices sent in spring and summer send in a remittance for HALF the amount on the invoice if they received it in spring and one quarter if summer. Also any clubs that haven’t paid invoices from last year. I have paid on your behalf and would appreciate being able to straighten my books. When things resume I will start invoicing from scratch. Clubs that have already paid for delivery of either three or four issues but will not receive autumn and winter (i.e. those who did pay for a full year’s deliveries from a spring or summer invoice) will not receive another invoice until four issues of the magazine have been sent out to them.
This website is a free, up to the minute, resource for Probus members to complement Probus magazine
By looking through the topics above you will find resources and information which we hope are useful.
There is a chat section where Probians can perhaps look for old friends, advice or swap speaker recommendations, or look for answers to questions that need a reply before the next Probus magazine publishes. I also put up there details of people looking for a Probus club to join when I have no details of clubs in their area.
If you register as author of a page for your club, as soon as I have approved the application you will be sent a password.

Please type in your e-mail address carefully or the acceptance e-mail will not reach you. If you think you may have made an error, please email me.
