In line with many other local clubs and societies, and following government guidelines, Retford Men’s Probus Club stopped holding their meetings in March 2020. Lockdown was introduced and despite being unable to meet, the club committee made a point of contacting members with news, views and updates.
Although not completely out of the woods yet (COVID-wise), but heading in the right direction, the club committee have decided to regroup and commence meetings once again.
The meetings will take place at the usual venue Westhill Community Centre, Cheyne Walk, Ordsall. A new programme has been formulated, with a variety of speakers covering a host of topics with, hopefully, something to suit the majority of tastes. The first of these meetings being scheduled to take place on Friday 3rd September at 10.00am.
On Friday 17th September, members will get the opportunity to welcome back a very popular figure when 60s icon Vince Eager makes a welcome return to the club (to be confirmed). The entertainer, in the heyday of rock ’n roll, shared top billing with the likes of Marty Wilde, Joe Brown and Eddy Cochran to name but a few! On this occasion, Vince will address the members on ‘Life after the Eurovision Song Contest’.
