Club spokesperson Kevin Tomlinson told News Of The Area, “The Club had a fantastic presentation at the monthly meeting from two members of the Fort Scratchley volunteers.

“They gave an absolutely wonderful presentation with plenty of graphics, to give the history of Fort Scratchley and the present situation.

“The importance of the guns were explained and the occasions where they had been fired to defend our coastline was detailed – they had been fired on submarines threatening Newcastle and the harbour during WWII.”

The presentation was very well appreciated by members and further questions were directed to the presenters during the subsequent morning tea.

“The guest speakers at the regular monthly meetings are always so informative, which along with the regular ‘munchies’ makes for a very interesting club.

The Medowie Probus Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month (December excepted) at 10.00 am at the Medowie Community Centre.

“We always look forward to seeing any interested people who are retired or semi-retired and are looking for something to occupy their time,” Kevin said.
