Kevin Tomlinson, Publicity Officer of the Combined Probus Club of Medowie told News Of The Area, “It will be an enjoyable day with fun, fellowship and friendship before the Christmas season.”

Spinners and Weavers

At the November meeting of the Probus Club, two ladies from the Newcastle Spinners and Weavers Guild attended as guest speakers.

“They showed the various spinning wheels and pointed out that spinning and weaving is probably the oldest activity in the world,” Kevin said.

“Mankind needed fabrics way back and when the Vikings were sailing around the world they needed sails and ropes.

“They showed and explained how yarn can be spun from everything, including raw material including milk, bamboo, and other materials.

“The meeting was the last for this year and we are looking forward to 2023 with eager anticipation, with a number of activities in the pipeline.”

The Combined Probus Club of Medowie meets at 10.00 am on the third Wednesday of the month at the Medowie Community Centre and all are welcome.

The Medowie Combined Probus Club is intended for retired and semi-retired members of the community.
