Probus Club member Julia Redlich told News Of The Area, “It was enlightening, of course, we knew already of the wonderful cakes and crafts available at their fetes!

“But we weren’t as aware of the good work the CWA does in the wider community,” she said.

The other speaker was Colin Couper, Deputy Unit Commander of Nelson Bay Marine Rescue, who presented a detailed talk with splendid illustrations that showed the attendees how much the public owes Marine Rescue volunteers and how justly the unit deserves the many awards it has received for skill and bravery.

“How lucky is this area where we live is to have such great organisations who volunteer their time and talents for those who need it?” she said.

The Fingal Bay Probus Club meets at 9.30am on the second Monday of each month at the Fingal Bay Sports Club, 100 Rocky Point Road, Fingal Bay.

New members and visitors are welcome to learn about Probus and the club’s activities such as barbecues, movies, day trips, morning teas and walks for pleasure.
