EVENTS FOR MEMBERS, RELATIVES, AND FRIENDS
We are now starting to think about how we can continue our social activities for 2023. In 2022, we had a lunch in October at a local hostelry and a Christmas lunch in December. We joined with members of another local Probus Club for a trip to the Great British Car Journey in Ambergate in November.
