Wokingham PROBUS Club


WOKINGHAM PROBUS Club members meeting at John Nike Centre, Bracknell, on Wednesday, March 7, were taken on a photograph­ic safari by the award winning wildlife photograph­er, Tom Way.

Tom gets face to face with his subject, literally eyeball to eyeball. His favourite country is Africa and he loves its big cats.

Some stunning photos were shown, not just of lions but all sorts of animal life from all over the world. From birds through the great apes right up to largest animal on the planet, the Blue Whale, all captured in spectacula­r clarity.

A most fascinatin­g and entertaini­ng talk, which was enlivened by anecdotes on the painstakin­g and sometimes frustratin­g process needed to get the perfect shot. All very much appreciate­d by members and guests.

PROBUS is a meeting place for retired or semi-retired profession­al and business people of either sex who assemble monthly in an informal and friendly atmosphere for social chat, a pleasant lunch and a talk on a general interest topic.

New members will be most welcome. Fees are modest, lunches good value and the company friendly with a wide range of experience­s and interests from their varied working lives.

Meetings are on the first Wednesday of the month at 12.30pm for 1pm lunch, with a talk usually following. The meeting place is John Nike Leisurespo­rt, John Nike Way, Bracknell.

Future meetings include such diverse topics as the Mary Rose restoratio­n and Victorian quack medicine.

Prospectiv­e members will be most welcome to come and meet us, by prior arrangemen­t please, and try us out without obligation. Please contact Hugh Dempster on 0118 973 0332.
