A PRO­FES­SIONAL busi­ness club cel­e­brated its an­niver­sary.

The Chiltern Probus club had its decade an­niver­sary at the end of May and 80 peo­ple en­joyed a lunch at Moor Park Man­sion in Rick­mansworth.

The club is men only and it is re­quired for mem­bers to have a pro­fes­sional or busi­ness back­ground. The mem­bers tend to be re­tired or semi-re­tired and the aim is to pro­vide reg­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties to keep their minds ac­tive, to ex­pand their in­ter­ests and to make and spend time with friends.

The founder chair­man of the Chiltern Probus Club, Ray Challi­nor, said: “Some 80 peo­ple en­joyed the mag­nif­i­cence of the Moor and has 10th
