Bexhill & District Probus Club - May 16
OUR Spring Lunch held on April 24 at the Cooden Beach Golf Club attracted a full complement of members, wives and guests. As ever the club provided high quality food and drink and together with pleasant surroundings and convivial company all those present greatly enjoyed the event.
Proceedings closed with brief speeches by newly elected chairman, Leonard Sterling, who also spoke before the meal, and social secretary Graham Ellery.
Finally came the raffle, again a great success due to the fine range of prizes on offer and Barbara Ellery's unique style of selling tickets!
At our next meeting on May 22 the speaker will be Bee Frost with her illustrated talk on the restoration of the windmill at Windmill Hill which lies on the A271 between Herstmonceux and Boreham Street.
Bee is a trustee of the restoration project which attracted 577,000 of Heritage Lottery money.
Anyone wishing to find out more about the project should log onto www.Windmill Hill Windmill.co.uk
If you are retired or semi retired from business why not come along and try us out. There are no strange initiation ceremonies to go through.
We meet on the fourth Thursday of the month, 10am at the Bexhill Conservative Club on Amherst Road and you do NOT have to be a member of the Conservative Club to become a Probus member. We offer a broad range of speakers, lunches and outings and most importantly good company.
