The Didsbury Probus Club invites you to our next scheduled Speaker Meeting on Thursday 4th January 2024

We promote fellowship through periodic meetings with a variety of speakers that extend our interests in a wide range of subjects.

You do not need to be a member to attend.

You can attend four meetings before being asked to join the club.

Venue: Didsbury Baptist Church on the corner of School Lane and Beaver Road opposite Didsbury Metrolink, M20 6SX

Time:  We will meet at 10:30 am  for tea/coffee and biscuits with the talk starting at 11.00am.

Talk Title: Forensic Science

Speaker:  Caroline Eames
Caroline will talk about the work of forensic scientists, probably not quite the same as the image portrayed on some television productions.

Visitors are very welcome.  Any donations, to help with our running costs, will be gratefully received.
