Springfields Probus Club March Meeting and Speaker

The Spalding Springfields Probus Club committee met as usual at 11:00 before the actual meeting to discuss relevant matters. Club Secretary Roger Human told us that he had finalised the details regarding the annual summer outing for this year where we are going to the Petwood Hotel at Woodhall Spa for some light refreshments before moving on to the main event at Doddington Hall and Gardens on Wednesday August 26th.

It was also decided that the 25th anniversary of Springfields Probus Club formation would be celebrated at the barbecue. There will be a male oriented raffle and new committee member Roger Lilliman volunteered to source the prizes.

The speaker for the day was Ruth O’Melia from the St Barnabas Hospice charity. Her talk was very interesting and we learned that organisation does a lot more than palliative care for terminal patients. One of the other strings to their bow is arranging shopping and chores to be done by volunteers.  Their web page is HERE and you can also contact them by telephone on 01522 518221 should you wish to volunteer and 01522 511566 for their care services.
