Probus Club 20th Anniversary

Founders meeting

This year (2015) Audlem and District Probus Club will be celebrating it's 20th Anniversary since it was first founded in 1995.

The President of Nantwich Rotary Club, of the time, Derek Rooke proposed the setting up of the club to several members of the village who subsequently became the the founding members.

The photograph of the time shows the founding members and the minutes of the inaugural meeting on the 27th April 1995. (There had been a previous meeting to decide if sufficient support existed for such a club)

At the Initial meeting the late Humphrey Parker was elected President, and in early 1996 there were approximately 30 members.

Derek Rooke presented the President's badge of office to Humphrey Parker and expressed the view that the club would prosper in view of the interest shown.

Since that time the club has prospered, growing from 30 members to now approximately 80 and a vibrant club now has an extensive programme of speakers and social activities.

To mark this special occasion an anniversary lunch is being planned for the 27th April at Brookfield Golf Club, the home of the Club. More details will follow.
