PRIOR to our meeting on October 27, our Chairman for the past three years, Margaret Hopkinson, handed over the office to Ray Tunnicliff­e.

Margaret volunteere­d for the job at a critical time and has latterly maintained a momentum which could easily have been lost during the pandemic. The members enthusiast­ically endorsed tributes made by past Chairman, Peter Barlass.

We were then treated to an absorbing and educationa­l presentati­on by Neil Tomlinson from the CoOp Legal Services entitled “Tax, Care and Toy Boys”, covering a wide range of topics relating to personal financial management, particular­ly in later life.

Our next presentati­on will be on Wednesday, at 10am for 10.30am when local adventurer, Melanie Southworth presents “Everest Climber”, which promises to be a very special occasion.

As always, this will be at Ashday Lea, Haslingden Road, Rawtenstal­l, BB4 6QX and all are welcome, including non Probus members who have an interest in the subject or would like a taster of our bi monthly meetings.
