On November 6th a group of 10 members attended the Probus Fellowship Service. 
This was held by Barton on Sea Probus and consisted of Church service followed by an excellent buffet.
 
The November 8th meeting was our AGM. 
Business was ably conducted by our Chairman Geoff Stokes. The committee were re-elected en bloc with the exception that Colin Isenman was appointed Assistant Treasurer replacing Ron Oram who was thanked for his diligent past service over the years. The Speaker for the meeting was our very own Michael Pipes who gave a very good and humorous account of what a career in education is like. A write up on the talk can be found in Past Talks. It was followed by the usual excellent meal we have become accustomed to since moving to the Masonic Hall.
