A new president for Mumbles Probus


Clive Williams (to the right of the photograph taken by Mr John Powell) has been installed as President of the Probus Club of Mumbles, Swansea, in succession to Mr Philip Rogers. Clive Williams is a former civil servant and most recently held the position of Director of the former rail transport watchdog, the Rail Passengers Committee for Wales.
Mr Williams said: “I have been an active member of the Probus Club of Mumbles for six years and it is a great honour to be appointed as president.
“The pandemic forced us all into isolation for long periods of time, and organisations like the Probus Club of Mumbles are proving a lifeline as we gradually return to a situation of closer social interaction.
“During my tenure, I will continue to honour the club’s tradition of sharing experiences and pushing forward an agenda of friendship, fellowship and fun”. 
Mumbles Probus Club was founded in 1978 and there are two other such clubs in the village; Oystermouth Probus Club and Mumbles Ladies Probus Club. Members meet on a regular basis for informal discussions, to listen to talks, or to enjoy meals. Visits to places of interest are periodically arranged and there is usually an annual outing, when family and friends of members are invited. The Probus Club of Mumbles holds its regular meetings at Bristol Channel Yacht Club.  
Other officers elected include Keith Brown, Vice-President, Alan Thomas, Secretary, Mervyn Jones, Treasurer, David Jeffreys, Speaker Secretary, Peter Hopkins, Social Secretary, Roger Hindley, Registrar and Brian Saunders, Welfare Officer.
