THERE is a new face taking the helm of Wombwell’s Probus Club who hopes to provide fun and friendship for local retirees.

Royston resident, Mavourneen Robinson, has taken on presidency of the popular local club, taking over from retiring Peter Jenkinson

A keen member for more than ten years, Mavourneen said that the club’s motto is ‘friendship, fellowship and fun’.

Members enjoy the company of like-minded fellow retirees, exploring new interests and hobbies, with regular outings.

Members also have a Crown Green Bowling Club, based at Platts Common, meeting three mornings each week during warmer months.

Anyone wishing to consider joining the club may call 01226 756470.
