Kevin Tomlinson, the club’s secretary, told News Of The Area, “It was tremendous that after the Covid lockdown to be able to get together and celebrate the Christmas spirit.

“Since the interruptions through the year and restrictions only recently being lifted some of the regular Christmas activities were curtailed.

“There were no customary baskets, however there were small gifts, drawn out and members lucky enough to collect a prize were pleasantly surprised.”

The meal, again due to the Covid lockdown timing, was an a la carte arrangement, not the usual set Christmas menu, however all were happy to select from the special menu and the regular menu at The Greenhouse.

“The Manager, James, and the catering staff were fantastic and were able to provide the meals for members in a really organized and efficient manner for the 32 members attending this first function after lockdown.

“All agreed that it was great to be able to meet and greet each other and have some degree of normality.”

All required Covid protocols were met and the staff at The Greenhouse ensured everyone was double vaccinated and masks were worn while moving around the Club.

The Combined Probus of Medowie are looking forward to resuming normal meetings, the first in 2022 to be held at the Medowie Community Centre on Wednesday 19 January 2022 at 10.00 am.

Members are advised that any protocols required will be in place, however further easing of restrictions is anticipated with everyone, vaccinated or not, likely to be allowed.

Any other people who wish to attend can do so and find out about the wonderful Probus activities, guest speakers and the friendship within the Club.
