Ashtead Probus bounces back! Despite the pandemic curtailing activities, we have already had two successful meetings via Zoom. The first was simply to re-connect with members and share experiences, good or bad. For some, it was the first time in months they were able to see and speak to a friendly face they knew from outside the immediate family. Buoyed by the experience, on 20 July we had our first talk. Terry Johnson, who had previously spoken on The Profumo Affair and The Great Train Robbery was equally entertaining on Lady Chatterley’s Lover, The Trial of Penguin Books. On 17 August 2020 Dr Helen Naylor told us all there is to know about Gin, its history (not always uplifting), its manufacture and its current fashionable status. Any retired business or professional man who would like to join us at Ashtead Probus should visit www.ashteadprobus.com or contact our Secretary, Stephen Bridges, on 07806 791774. Keep an eye on Dates for the Diary for details of the latest meeting.
